Ram Adds BackCountry Trim, Makes Off-Road Big Horn Model

Mild off-road Ram arrives this fall

  • Off-road suspension and tires highlight changes

  • Truck gets two-tone paint, other cosmetic features


Ram trucks has just added yet another variant of its 1500 pickup. This one is called the BackCountry Edition and it adds a handful of choice off-road features to the Ram 1500 Big Horn like new shocks, all-terrain tires, and more.

It’s tailored to the ever-expanding segment of owners who want a pickup that is slightly more capable off-road without going to the extremes of a massive lift or the day-to-day compromises of something like a Ram 1500 TRX or Ford Raptor. Think of it as an answer to GMC’s AT4 trims.

The 2022 Ram 1500 BackCountry starts with the Big Horn trim and then adds 18-inch wheels wearing Falken Wildpeak all-terrain tires. Keeping the rubber planted are newly-tuned dampers at all corners that are calibrated for better ride and handling off of the pavement.

The 4×4 Off-Road Group is standard and that adds tow hooks and an electronic locking rear axle as well as skid plates for the front suspension, transfer case, and fuel tank. It also comes with bed lighting and if you pick the RamBox option, a bed divider.

There are some more cosmetic changes to the outside like two-tone exterior paint, black badges and other black trim, and a body-colour grille surround. The cabin gets black buckets and a 7.0-inch touch screen, with Mopar all-weather mats standard.

The 2022 Ram 1500 BackCountry will be offered only as a 4×4, and will come in Quad and Crew Cabs, all with the 5.7L Hemi V8. Pricing in Canada starts from $63,330, while U.S. buyers can get the 5.7L Hemi with or without eTorque, starting from $40.085.
