Ram 1500 Big Horn Lone Star Trim

The Ram 1500 Big Horn/Lone Star trim levels are like two peas in a pod. They’re equipped with similar features, can be had in similar configurations, and most importantly, both strike a powerful middle-ground between high-class luxury and high-effort work capabilities. Discover the differences and similarities between the Ram 1500 Big Horn trim and Lone Star trim below, and visit us at Frisco Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram to experience this popular truck in action.

How Are the Ram 1500 Big Horn/Lone Star Trim Levels Different?

These two models are positioned equally in the lineup of Ram 1500 trim levels. They’re both loaded with near-identical standard features, have a similar price, and are equipped with indistinguishable powertrains.

So, what’s the difference here? Essentially, the Ram 1500 Lone Star trim is only available at Ram truck dealers in Texas like ours, adding special touches that inspire Lone-Star-State pride. The Ram 1500 Big Horn is available country-wide.

Ram 1500 Big Horn/Lone Star Trim Standard Features

As we mentioned, choosing a new Ram 1500 for sale in either the Lone Star or Big Horn trim level will yield near-identical features. However, let’s start with what isn’t identical — the exterior flair.

First up, a Ram 1500 Big Horn displays a prominent rectangular “Big Horn” badge on its tailgate. A Ram 1500 Lone Star does much the same, but instead of having a purely rectangular shape, a map of Texas stands proud in the middle of the “Lone Star” badge. Fortunately for those living out of state, you can typically equip the Ram 1500 Big Horn trim with this Texas-inspired badge as an optional extra.

Both trim levels continue on with chrome-trimmed exteriors and 18-inch aluminum wheels. Moving inside, both the 2022 Ram 1500 Big Horn/Lone Star trim levels will offer standard benefits like a Uconnect 3 infotainment system, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a six-speaker sound system, and more.

The list of standard features is equally generous on both trucks. Still, as a final point of differentiation, Big Horn and Lone Star trims proudly display their respective trim names on the passenger-side dashboard storage compartment.
