Ram Truck introduced a new Snow Plow prep package for the 2021 Ram 1500 at the Work Truck Show 2020. The new package is available on 2021 Ram 1500 Tradesman, Big Horn, and Laramie 4x4 models that are equipped with the 5.7L HEMI V-8, 5.7L HEMI eTorque V-8, or 3.0L EcoDiesel V-6 engine.
“As part of Ram’s commitment to continuous improvement within the segment, we now offer a Snow Plow Prep package for Ram 1500 customers,” said Reid Bigland, Head of Ram Brand. “Ram has taken a larger presence in the commercial vehicle market, and this offering is the latest expansion of our hard-working trucks.”
The new Ram 1500 Snow Plow Prep option is available for $195 and includes a 220-amp alternator, truck-side plow wiring harness and a rear power sliding window with defroster. The active air dam is removed when this option is selected to make way for plow mounts.
The plow, mounts, and controller are all sold separately and are available through several manufacturers. The Ram 1500 Snow Plow Prep package will be available later this year.
The Ram 1500 features up to 12,750 pounds of towing capability and 2,300 pounds of payload. The eTorque mild hybrid system delivers improved fuel efficiency in both V-6 (standard) and V-8 configurations. The 1/2-ton diesel pickup offers 480 lb.-ft. of torque and towing capability up to 12,560 pounds.
