If you are a huge fan of the Ram 1500 pickup truck, but you want something more exciting than the Bigfoot Edition will be the answer you are seeking. German Motors & Engineering has just released a special package for the famous pickup. The newest Ram 1500 Bigfoot Edition pickup comes with a completely redesigned exterior, new suspension, and new powertrain.
The goal is to provide versatility, especially when it comes to off-roading. This Edition is currently available in Deutschland which is not often thing to happen. Owning a regular Ram 1500 model in Europe grabs huge attention so the Bigfoot Edition surely comes as a huge surprise. This model will use a 5.7-liter Hemi V8 with the supercharger and it will deliver astonishing performances.
Ram 1500 Bigfoot Edition Will Totally Depart From The Regular 1500 Pickup Truck
No one says that the Ram 1500 needs to look better, but it certainly has the potential for further improvements. GME was smart enough to realize that and provide the Ram 1500 Bigfoot Edition. When it comes to exterior, this variant will totally depart from the regular 1500 pickup truck. Upgrades are starting with the new Xenon headlight units instead of the standard halogen lights. There will be more visible chrome inserts, especially up front.
Bigfoot Edition comes with the matte black rim covers around the front grille and functional metal grille sports a single integrated LED light bar. The suspension is all-new and it provides this model a 9.5-inch lift. Moreover, the suspension is height-adjustable. 20-inch wheels are standard and are looking massive on this pickup. Overall, the result is a more aggressive and more appealing model.
Ram 1500 Bigfoot Edition Interior
Interestingly, German Motor & Engineering made zero changes from the inside. That means the Ram 1500 Bigfoot Edition will be exactly the same as the regular 1500 pickup that left the assembly in Michigan. That means the Bigfoot Edition comes with complete exterior revamp and massive mechanical upgrades.
The interior is still modern and very upscale. However, most of you probably expected serious upgrades from the inside. Even the list of the standard and optional features is the same. Of course, you can optionally equip the interior to a real level of luxury. That includes leather seats, Wi-Fi hotspot, larger 12-inch display, and other premium amenities.
