The Ram 1500 Backcountry X Concept is the truck for people that are serious about combining work and play. It builds upon the class-exclusive RamBox cargo management system with custom-designed RamPack and RamRack features that significantly increase the secure storage space without compromising the functionality of the pickup bed. The truck and its revolutionary storage system will be on display at the Mopar booth during the 2022 SEMA Show.
Ram 1500 Backcountry X Concept: Details
Designed for sleek and integrated fit on both sides of the truck bed, the conceptual RamPack storage compartments open via a single, carbon-fiber, hatch-type panel above the standard RamBox on each bedside. Valuable storage space is expanded by more than 68% (up to 12.3 cubic feet) with the custom RamPack system. Custom rectangular shelves run the entire length of the vast compartments, and a pair of tie-down loops provide secure mounting locations.
The custom RamRack on the Ram 1500 Backcountry X continues the design investigation of the telescoping storage-rack system first shown on the Ram 1500 Outdoorsman concept at the 2021 SEMA Show. The RamRack also uses Thule cross rails above the bed for mounting gear and accessories. Attached in each corner of the RamRack are 2-inch TYRI LED lights, while a Center High Mount Stop Lights adds a third brake light to the rear crossbar.
On the inside panel of the tailgate, there is a custom Mopar RamGate task-bench insert that features various conversion charts and an angle finder coupled with an array of Rockler woodworking hardware. The Ram 1500 Backcountry X concept rides on a Mopar 2-inch lift kit with FOX shocks, matte-black 20-by-9-inch Fuel Heater wheels, and 37-inch BFGoodrich tires.
The two-tone Matte Iced Silver Titanium and matte-black exterior stand out with contrasting anodized orange bodyside stripes and accents on the hood, tow hook (front and rear), and grille badge. At the front, a Mopar tubular grille guard has four Mopar 5-inch LED off-road lights to enhance forward lighting.
The inside of the Ram 1500 Backcountry X tone-on-tone neutral green front and second-row bucket seats feature contrasting orange accent stitching throughout the cabin on the steering wheel, door panels, and armrests. Contrasting anodized orange air vent controls also add to the custom look and feel. In addition, front bucket seats wear custom embroidered Backcountry X and Mopar logos. Between the front seats, a traditional, deployable work surface with an integrated measuring system slides out from the soft center armrest and provides 12 by 14 inches of additional workspace. Lastly, under the second-row bench seat, a concept RamVac onboard vacuum makes cleaning the cabin area accessible after returning from the trail or the work site.
