There are so many factors to consider when choosing your next truck. After deciding on the 2021 Ram 1500 to take you around the Edgewood, Bel Air, and Aberdeen, MD, areas, you have one final decision to make: Which trim level is right for you?

If you want a commanding presence on the open road, the Rebel and Big Horn have probably caught your eye. Allow the team at Thompson Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram of Harford County to show you what makes each trim unique.

Choose the Capability You Need

Before choosing the right trim for you, you first need to figure out the type of capability your worksite calls for. If you're looking to haul around a light-loaded utility trailer or small hard-sided RV, then the 2021 Ram 1500 Big Horn is a great match.

Thanks to a 3.6-liter Pentastar® V6 engine delivering 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque, this motor helps the Big Horn take on hauls up to 6,740 pounds with ease when properly equipped. While the Rebel has the same powertrain under the hood, it increases your capability to 7,440 pounds when properly equipped to help you out with heftier equipment.

The Rebel also offers a class-exclusive towing feature, a Four Corner Air Suspension. This system lowers the height of your truck as needed, which is especially handy when trying to hitch up your trailer.

A Relaxing Ride

Whether it's an early morning ride to your construction site or a thrilling venture out of town, it's important you stay cozy in your 2021 Ram 1500.

In the Rebel and Big Horn, you'll be treated to an 8-way power driver's seat with 4-way power lumbar adjustment that allows you to select the best seating position to melt into. Front seat heating is also a comfort found on these trim levels to make winter rides more enjoyable.

If you want to give your passengers the 5-star treatment as well, opt for the Ram 1500 Rebel trim. It adds on an 8-way power passenger's seat and heated rear seats.

Rebel vs Big Horn: Color Options

Your vehicle is a reflection of your own unique style. Either one of these 2021 Ram 1500 trim levels is sure to turn heads-but there are some key styling differences. To start, the Big Horn is available with 13 monotone exterior colors such as Olive Green Pearl and Hydro-Blue Pearl.

The Rebel, on the other hand, only has one monotone exterior color. However, there are six 2-tone color selections-like Flame Red and Diamond Black Crystal-that will make a unique statement.

Inside, you'll find different interior color choices as well:
