There’s nothing quite like a Ram truck. There is certainly no shortage of trucks on the market, and each has a unique selling point. Still, only Ram combines the prowess and capability that the working world looks for with the refinement and sophistication that caters to style and aesthetics. The Ram 1500, the brand’s flagship product, comes in various trims that can be utilized for multiple applications. Here at Dan Cummins Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram of Paris, we think the Big Horn trim is ideally suited for the people of Louisville.

Available in two different cab configurations and with either 2WD or 4WD, the Big Horn can serve you in various ways, both in the working world and for a night on the town. If you’re looking for the correct type of truck that does it all, look no further than the Big Horn. Getting behind the wheel is as easy as visiting us at Dan Cummins CDJR of Paris, your local Ram dealer near Louisville, to unlock the full potential of what the Big Horn offers.

Power and Performance

Louisville residents might have different needs regarding the performance level of their pickup trucks. That being said, there’s no denying that anyone looking to take advantage of the Big Horn will be curious about what lies underneath the hood, where we’ll begin our examination.

The Big Horn has three different cab configurations and two available powertrains. Opting for a crew cab with a five-foot bed gives you access to a 3.6L V6 that pairs with an eight-speed automatic transmission. 305 hp is more than enough in the performance sector to offer prowess and assist with occupation obligations, especially with its 2,000 lbs payload capacity. Louisville drivers who want to make use of the Big Horn as their daily commuter will be pleased to know that despite the amount of power it delivers, it’s also reasonably efficient when it comes to fuel economy, with the RWD version achieving 20 MPG in the city and 25 MPG on the highway. This powertrain is also assigned to the quad cab with a 6.4-foot bed.

Earlier, we mentioned the Kentucky Derby, as it’s often associated with Louisville, and many drivers who reside in this area require a workhorse of a different kind to facilitate the challenging jobs. Choosing the crew cab with a 6.4-foot bed unlocks one of the most potent engines in its class, the 5.7L HEMI V8. The HEMI pushes out an incredible 395 hp, generating an equally impressive 410 lb-ft of torque. A towing capacity of 12,750 lbs can make any job relatively easy, and when equipped with optional 4WD, no terrain is too rugged to tame.

Interior and Tech

One of the aspects that makes Ram such an attractive brand to many is its continuing ability to ideally match style and substance and combine them on an equal footing with one another. Many have expectations of performance regarding the pickup truck, but only Ram can match this with sophistication and comfort. Depending on how advanced and immersive you want your tech-savviness to be, plenty of available upgrades can be added on.

Technology is accessed through a standard 8.4-inch infotainment screen compatible with Apple and Android. It is also equipped with Uconnect 5, a comprehensive software suite with most vehicles manufactured by the Stellanis corporation. Drivers can upgrade to a larger 12-inch screen that permits access to items like in-dash navigation. The Big Horn includes noise cancellation, ensuring that your favorite music stays inside the cabin and road noise stays outside where it belongs. Three different stereo systems can be picked, with a six-speaker setup being the standard offering., along with the option to upgrade to a nine-speaker configuration.

While the Big Horn’s cloth interior is standard, notable upgrades can be installed to ensure a comfortable trip, no matter where your particular travels may take you. Items like heated and ventilated seats and dual-zone climate control can make any drive around Kentucky enjoyable, even when the weather isn’t the most favorable. If you plan on utilizing the Big Horn on the job site, some options include front and rear power outlets and a spray-in bedliner for additional protection.

Safety and Driving Assistance

The technological innovations in the automotive industry regarding safety and driving assistance features are remarkable. One thing that Louisville residents, whether out for a night on the town or at the job site, all agree on is that safety is imperative. Depending on how much protection and oversight you want, the Big Horn can be outfitted with various features demonstrating Ram’s continuing commitment to its drivers.

Ram trucks have continually received favorable ratings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in collision testing. If you want to take protection to the next level, we recommend opting for the Level One Safety Group Package. This comprehensive package includes many features essential for maintaining safe travels on the road ahead, which include:

Advance Brake-Assist

A comprehensive design involving both the Forward Collision Warning and Adaptive Cruise Control, Advance Brake Assist utilizes radar and camera technology to provide additional assistance in situations where a collision might occur.

Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning Plus

Another essential for preserving reaction time is additional pressure, which is applied to the brakes in the event of a potential collision. An audible warning alerts the driver if a collision is imminent, and it is another exceptional use of radar and camera technology by the industry to promote safety.

Lane Keep Assist

Used with LaneSense Lane Departure Warning, this tool monitors your vehicle’s position in relation to the lane boundaries. When it senses you drifting out of your lane, it will first alert you, followed by corrective steering to move your vehicle back into the middle of your lane.

Pedestrian Emergency Braking

Safety applies not only to you when you’re behind the wheel but also to the various pedestrians and other drivers with whom we share the road. By detecting the presence of a pedestrian, an automated warning is sounded, and additional braking is applied.
