Pickup truck enthusiasts love their special editions and cosmetic packages, and the new 2017 Ram 1500 plans to satisfy that itch with the new Night Package. Ram unveiled the special-edition package early September, showing off a model based on the 1500 Sport trim level but with blacked-out exterior details like the wheels, badging, and grille. The Night Package will be available as an option when the 2017 Ram 1500 goes on sale sometime late 2016 during the fourth sales quarter.
The Ram 1500 equipped with the Night Package will offer drivers their choice of five different paint colors, Bright Silver Metallic, Bright White, Brilliant Black, Flame Red, and Granite Crystal Metallic. The idea for the package came from the 2013 model’s Black Express Package. Ram officials say offering options such as the Night Package allows drivers to further customize their driving experience and makes the buying process feel more personal.
The Ram 1500 Sport trim comes standard with a 305-HP V6, cloth bucket seats, and climate control. Other features added on by the new Night Package include black bezel LED headlamps, 20-inch gloss black wheels, and black sidewall all-season tires. Many other available features and accessories can also be added to the 2017 Ram 1500 on top of the Night Package, as well.
