Ram Truck showed off its new Snow Plow Prep Package at the National Truck Equipment Association’s “Work Truck Show®” in Indianapolis recently. The Snow Plow Prep Package will be available later this year for the 2021 Ram 1500 Tradesman, Big Horn and Laramie 4×4 models with the 5.7-liter HEMI® V-8, 5.7-liter HEMI eTorque V-8, or the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V-6 engine setup.
This Snow Plow Prep Package price is tough to beat at just $195. With it, you get an upgraded 220-amp alternator, truck-side plow wiring harness and a power-sliding rear window with defroster. Ram removes the active air dam when this option is selected to make way for plow mounts.
The Ram 1500 truck is known for its durability, efficiency, convenience, and technology with features never offered before in a pickup truck. It features a towing capacity of 12,750 pounds and 2,300 pounds of payload. Drivers get incredible fuel efficiency in both the V-6 and V-8 models thanks to the eTorque mild hybrid system. Ram says this truck is America’s most powerful half-ton diesel pickup with 480 lb.-ft. of torque and most capable light-duty diesel. Now you can add a low-cost Snow Plow Prep Package to its list of features as well!

Ram has taken a larger presence in the commercial vehicle market and this offering is the latest expansion of our hardworking trucks.”Reid Bigland, Head of Ram Brand
