Ram trucks unveils the latest snow plow preparation package for the 2021 Ram 1500 trucks. The Ram HD trucks have had a factory-approved snow plow package for many years. Now, the latest Ram 1500 half-ton truck is getting ready to kick winter’s behind.

The latest snow plow package includes a high-capacity 220-amp alternator, special wiring, removed active air dam, and a power-sliding rear window. The package will retail for $195 when it becomes available later this year.
This package will be available in Tradesman (work truck), Big Horn, or Laramie trim. It’s an optional add-on when you choose a 4×4 truck. The snow plow prep package can be had with the following engine options: 5.7L HEMI V8, HEMI V8 with eTorque, or a 3.0L EcoDiesel V6.
Ram does not specify whether the front (or rear) suspension is modified to handle higher weight of the snow plow. Ram has not yet specified the payload or Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) that are specific to this package.
This package is being introduced at the 2020 Work Truck Show in Indianapolis. Please stay tuned to our site and Youtube channels for all the latest news from the show.
