Last year when Ram introduced the 2019 Ram 1500 the company took a bit of a different approach between trim Levels in the United States and Canada. Whereas in previous years the trim levels matched up between the two countries, for 2019 Ram did away with the Sport trim in the US and created a Sport Appearance Package for Big Horn, and Laramie trims. Canada, on the other hand, did not get a Sport Appearance Package on the Big Horn but the folks up north got a dedicated Sport model as well as the Sport Appearance Package available on the Laramie trim.
To my surprise yesterday while driving past my local dealer right out front they had what appeared to be a Big Horn with the Sport appearance package. I stopped in on my way home, and while they were closed, I was able to take a look and get the VIN to search up the window sticker. While the Sport Appearance Package doesn’t show on the Canadian build and price yet, it is available as this dealer had a few trucks equipped the same way in various colors. The Sport Appearance Package on a Big Horn will set Canadians back $495 and comes with body colored front and rear bumpers, body colored grille, black interior accents and front bucket seats with the reconfigurable center console.
With the Sport Package now being available on the Big Horn, it now allows Canadians to mimic another truck that isn’t available in Canada, and that is the North Edition. Starting with a Big Horn and adding the Sport Appearance Package ($495), Off-Road Group ($875) and all-weather floor mats ($175) will get you a truck that looks and functions the same as a North Edition for $1545 in options over the base MSRP of a Big Horn.
For those in the United States looking for something a little sportier, we have a feeling that the Night Appearance Package will be making its way to the new Ram 1500.
