Ready To Conquer Back Roads: Find out more on the 2022 Ram 1500 BackCountry

Only a couple of days ago, Ram released details of the New 2022 Ram 1500 Laramie G/T and Rebel G/T models. These trucks, coming from the factory with performance modifications and performance monitoring capabilities, offer buyers a leg-up while driving on-road. Today, Ram is announcing the addition of another model, the 2022 Ram 1500 BackCountry Edition. The BackCountry Edition is an optional variant of the Lone Star and Big Horn models geared towards conquering off-road terrains.

Instead, it offers affordable, off-road capabilities beyond the standard truck. Here’s everything, the 2022 Ram 1500 BackCountry has to offer.
