Ram introduced a new BackCountry Edition for the popular Ram 1500 Big Horn and Lone Star models, and will be on display this week at the Chicago Auto Show.

The Ram 1500 BackCountry joins the light-duty lineup, and combines convenience, comfort, and off-road capability in one package with a name that resonates among truck buyers, Stellantis said. 

The Ram BackCountry features robust off-road features straight from the factory, while staying true to the hardworking nature of its nameplate.
