Ram Wants You To Forget All About Ford And Chevrolet Puny Pickups

Or is Ram just catching up?

Ford and Chevrolet pickup truck owners are spoiled when it comes to choices, especially off-roading, with the respective FX4 or Z71 packages. These packages aren’t necessarily special, but Ram has just entered the party with an off-roading package of its own. It includes the usual updates that make the pickup truck even more of an animal when the path gets a little rough. Ram introduced a new 4X4 Off-Road Package at the 2016 Chicago Auto Show which will be offered on all Ram 2500 models.

It may be a new package, but Ram’s recipe is the same as Ford’s and Chevrolet’s. Mechanical updates include new Bilstein monotube shocks and a limited-slip differential as standard. The LT tires are from Firestone, which, apparently, are engineered to strike the perfect balance between on-road comfort and off-road capability. The package also includes a host of underbody protection, while a prominent decal on the rear fender lets the world know that the truck can go off-roading. Pricing has not been released, but Ram stated that the 4X4 Off-Road Pack is “a value-priced option.”
