Ram expands its lineup of special-edition trucks
The Chicago auto show is known for showcasing new trucks, or at least special-edition versions of existing trucks. In that spirit, Ram is bringing a few uniquely designed trucks to this year’s show: the 2017 Ram 1500 Copper Sport and the Ram HD Night.
Based on the Sport trim, the special-edition 1500 gets a new Copper Pearl paint tone, as well as 22-inch aluminum wheels on the two-wheel-drive model. It also features a body-color grille, a Sport performance hood with black decals, black Ram’s head grille badge, black tailgate badge, and black body-side badges. Inside, look for Copper-colored accents and stitching throughout the cabin, sport mesh seat inserts, and special badging. Buyers also receive an Alpine sound system with nine speakers including a subwoofer.
All Copper Sport models come in Crew Cab orientation with a V-8 engine. Ram is producing only 3,000 units, and prices will start at $46,950 USD when it goes on sale later this month.
Building off the 2017 Ram 1500 Night, the HD Night comes with a number of subtle blacked-out features. Although the exterior paint is available in a wide range of colors including white, silver, and red, the model features a blacked-out grille surround and black badging. It also gets black-bezel headlamps, body-color-painted steel front and rear bumpers, and 20×8-inch black painted wheels. Heated black cloth vinyl bucket seats, power adjustable pedals, and dual-zone climate control are some of the interior goodies inside the Night edition.
Production began this month on the 2017 HD Night models. Buyers can get the Night package on Ram 2500 and 3500 Crew Cabs with 4×2 or 4×4 and any available powertrain, including the diesel. Prices start at $46,840 USD.
