The upcoming 2021 Ram 1500 Big Horn is getting further updates. Big Horn is a trim level that slots above the base trim called “Tradesman.” The price is slightly higher, but we’d definitely recommend the Big Horn version. Given the list of standard equipment, it is an affordable pickup truck in our opinion. You can have new Ram 1500 Big Horn in two different cab configurations. It comes with a reliable V6 powertrain option and various optional packages.
Moreover, unique exterior paints are available, along with the latest driver-assistance aids. Ram will deliver various updates for 2021, and that includes both exterior and interior changes. The sales will start in the coming months.
