Today in North America, Stellantis announced a new, limited-production vehicle built with a package of unique performance parts and accessories from Mopar’s Factory Upfit Shop – the new Mopar ’21 Ram 1500 Special Edition.
Available exclusively on the 2021 Ram 1500 Big Horn Crew Cab 4x4, the new Mopar ’21 Ram 1500 adds a variety of Mopar accessories to set it apart and reinforce the no-compromise, benchmark styling of the most awarded light-duty truck in America.

The new 2021 Ram 1500 Big Horn Crew Cab 4x4 is well equipped from the factory with 20-inch black wheels riding on 275/55R20 all-season tires; black grille badges; body-colour bumper, door handles and fender flares; black-painted mirrors; a Mopar bed step, and much more.

As with previous limited-production, special-edition Mopar vehicles, the new Mopar ’21 Ram 1500 includes an exclusive owner kit packaged in a custom box. The kit features a custom-made, personalized metal certificate of authenticity with serialized vehicle-build number and a special rendering of the truck by the Mopar Design team.
Powered by the legendary 5.7-litre HEMI® V-8 paired with a TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission, the Mopar ’21 Ram 1500 will be available at select Ram dealerships in both the United States and Canada this summer. The Canadian manufacturer’s suggested retail price for the exclusive Mopar ’21 Special Edition Package is $9,995.
The 2021 Ram 1500 is the no-compromise benchmark for durability, technology, efficiency, performance and convenience with features never before offered in a pickup. The Ram 1500 features up to 5,783 kilograms (12,750 pounds) of towing capability and 1,043 kg (2,300 lb.) of payload. The eTorque mild hybrid system delivers improved fuel efficiency in both V-6 (standard) and V-8 configurations. The Ram 1500 is North America’s most powerful half-ton diesel pickup with 480 lb.-ft. of torque, and is rated at an unsurpassed 33 mpg highway, delivering up to 1,000 miles of range on a single tank of fuel.
The 2021 Ram 1500 TRX has been rigorously tested to handle the most punishing conditions with extreme capability and durability on its way to being the quickest, fastest and most powerful mass-produced half-ton pickup truck in the world.
As a segment disrupter, the Uconnect 4C with a massive 12-inch touchscreen leads the segment in technology, featuring split-screen capability, 360-degree camera views, and exclusive content from SiriusXM with 360L and Personalized Stations Powered by Pandora. The 2021 Ram 1500 TRX is the first vehicle in the light-duty lineup to include the new Know & Go mobile app featuring an immersive experience for customers who want to learn more about their vehicles. Active safety and security systems include adaptive cruise control, Forward Collision Warning, Blind-spot Monitoring and Ready Alert Braking. Class-leading ride and handling are accomplished via a segment-exclusive link-coil rear suspension system with optional Active-level four-corner air suspension.
