Ram Unveils Special Edition Trucks at Chicago Auto Show
Ram’s medium and heavy duty trucks get some exclusive treatment.
The Chicago Auto Show has played host to the debut of several special edition vehicles this year. Here, we see Ram revamping both their 1500 and HD models with unique appearance packages, adding some flair to their work-focused demeanor. These upgrades include exclusive color choices and interior themes, setting them apart from their normal counterparts.
First up is the 2017 Ram 1500 Copper Sport. As the name entails, it gains a Copper Pearl paint scheme that the manufacturer has pulled off well. It comes in both 4WD and 2WD with the latter receiving special 22" wheels, sure to set it off from the rest. Black accents find their way into the Copper Sport package throughout, appearing both inside and outside of the cabin.
The interior doesn't shy away from the theme, either. Copper Pearl accents can be found in the stitching and dash pieces, keeping things in the same spirit. Black mesh seating gives the Ram a sporty feel that's missing from a lot of pickups. Lastly, you can expect bangin' quality from the 9-speaker Alpine system that features a thumping subwoofer to boot.
Production is limited to only 3,000 models. Each edition of the Copper Sport package will be V8 powered and pricing will start at $46,950.
Ram also toyed around with their heavy duty lineup. The HD Night package gives a thundering composure with black accents aplenty. The truck's exterior receives obvious adornment with black wheels and badging, building off of the current 1500 Night edition. Headlight bezels and grille surrounds are painted in the same scheme, rounding out the HD Night's exterior. You can opt to paint the rest of your truck red, white, or silver, setting things off nicely.
The interior is, you guessed it, black. Heated fabric seats offer some luxury to play off its intimidating road presence, making you feel large and in charge when in the commander's spot. Dual zone climate control is also standard.
The HD Night can be had in a variety of configurations. It's available in 4WD and 2WD with any powertrain option offered by the Ram 2500 and 3500. Pricing begins at $46,840.
