What is the Off-Road package on the 2017 Ram HD truck all about? It’s a way to get many off-road goodies in a Ram heavy duty truck as one package no mater which trim level or engine option you choose.
This package does not instantly turn your Ram HD into a Power Wagon, but the off-road capabilities are improved with a limited slip differential, under-body skid plates, tow hooks, hill descent control, and Bilstein monotube shocks. A truck with this package rides on Firestone Transforce AT tires. This is an on-road/off-road tire that offers a combination of compliant on-road ride and off-road performance, according to Ram. We have not driven this truck yet, so we cannot comment on the ride comfort or off-road capability at this time.
The Off-Road package will be available for sale in the fall of 2016, and we will thoroughly test this truck as we get closer to the fall. Pricing will be available closer to launch.
