Customized 2017 Ram 1500 Night Package Unveiled
Ram, the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) truck brand, this week took the wraps off a new special-edition Night package for the 2017 Ram 1500 large pickup truck. The new Ram Night is based on the 1500 Sport trim that features blacked-out exterior details, including black grille surround, badging, and wheels. The new special-edition factory-customized Ram pickup will be available when FCA begins production of the 2017 model early in the fourth quarter in Warren, MI. Pricing will be revealed closer to sale-date.
The new Ram 1500 Night, which is available in four exterior paint colors—Bright Silver Metallic, Bright White, Brilliant Black, Flame Red, and Granite Crystal Metallic—gives consumers another chance to customize and personalize their truck, according to a Ram official, who said the black badging was first used with the 2013 Ram Black Express package.
The new 1500 Ram Night includes a body-color fascia and rear bumper, folding mirrors, and door handles in addition to chrome exhaust tips. Black bezel headlamps with LED marker lights are also featured. Adjustable heated cloth bucket seats, adjustable pedals, and climate control also are standard on the Sport.
The 2017 Ram 1500 Night is powered by a standard 3.6-liter V-6 engine that delivers 305 horsepower and 269 lb.-ft. of torque. The powertrain combination averages 18 mpg city and 25 mpg highway. More powerful engines are optional.
Special effects for the Ram 1500 Night include the black grille surround, Ram stamped tailgate and blacked-out lettering, and black Ram’s-head badging for the grille, doors, and tailgate. The Ram 1500 Night rides on 20-in. gloss black aluminum wheels and features special black sidewall all-season tires. The special-edition Ram 1500 Night package is offered on Regular Cab, Quad Cab, and Crew Cab 1500 Sport trucks, in 2-wheel or 4-wheel drive (2WD or 4WD), with long and short bed lengths. Many options and upgrades can be added to this new Ram 1500 Night truck.
