Isn’t It Sublime? The 2017 Ram 1500 Special Editions Expand Their Color Palette
At a time when so many automakers have trouble thinking beyond 50 shades of gray, Fiat Chrysler seems to follow a “more colors: more better” attitude, particularly with its (many) special editions. We’ve already seen several color-based special versions of the Dodge Challenger and Charger, and now the Ram 1500 pickup is joining in on the fun with a brightly colored limited edition called the Sublime Sport and two new colors for the off-road-oriented Ram Rebel.
“Sublime” resurrects a hue first applied to Mopar muscle cars in 1970. The Ram 1500 Sublime Sport is a limited edition: Only 3000 of these bright-green trucks will be made, all crew-cab models with the 5.7-liter Hemi V-8. Along with the monochromatic exterior look, this special Ram gets black wheels (22-inchers on rear-wheel-drive models and 20-inchers with four-wheel drive), a special hood with black stripes, black Ram badges, and green accents throughout the interior. Its starting price of $47,135 is about $3300 more expensive than a similarly equipped Ram 1500 Sport Crew Cab with the V-8.
The off-road-oriented Ram Rebel, meanwhile, is gaining two new color options: Blue Streak and Delmonico Red. Both the Sublime Sport and these new hues for the Rebel will start arriving in dealerships in May, for buyers who are ready to leave the grayscale behind—way behind.
