Tuscany has taken the Ram 1500 to the next level.
Ram builds some of the most capable, luxurious, and absurdly powerful pickups on the planet. But if you're still not satisfied with what the current Ram 1500 range has to offer, aftermarket tuners can take the full-size pickup to the next level. If you want more performance, Hennessey is building a 1,000-hp version of the 1500 TRX. Now, Tuscany Motors is introducing the Ram 1500 Badlander. With its aggressive styling and a slew of off-road-focused components, this rugged Ram 1500 certainly stands out from the crowd.
To give the full-size truck even more presence, the Ram 1500 Badlander is fitted with a custom front bumper with an integrated 20-inch LED light bar, flared fenders, a sport hood with Badlander accents, an imposing black mesh grille, and custom 20-inch wheels wrapped in 37-inch BF Goodrich Mud-Terrain KM3 tires.
Tuned for on-road comfort and improved off-road capability, the suspension raises the ride height by six inches and features Fox 2.5 Performance Elite Remote Reservoir Shocks that can be "adjusted for optimal ride and performance on any terrain."
"The fully equipped Ram 1500 Badlander is available exclusively at select Ram dealers and is ready for rugged adventures in a luxurious environment," said Drew Kerley, Director of Marketing, Fox Factory Performance Vehicle Development. "All Tuscany Motor Co. trucks provide a superior ownership experience that sets you apart whether you're on the road or on an off-road adventure."
Inside, the interior includes carbon fiber interior trim, leather and suede seats, leather door inserts, Badlander dashboard badging, and a and custom stainless steel gauge cluster. Under the hood, the Ram 1500 Badlander is powered by a 5.7-liter Hemi V8 rated at 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque. Like the regular Ram 1500, the Badlander can tow up to 12,750 pounds and has a payload capacity of 2,300 pounds. No pricing details have been released, but the extensive modifications mean the Ram 1500 Badlander won't be cheap.
