Ram Reveals Limited-Edition 2016 1500 Stinger Yellow Sport

Stinger Yellow Ram II
A new variant of the 2016 Ram 1500 is now available, and it's called the Stinger Yellow Sport. If it reminds you of the Ram Rumble Bee concept from a few years ago, it's supposed to.

This is Ram's second yellow-themed special-edition version of the 1500. The truckmaker introduced the 1500 Yellow Rose of Texas in March. Clearly, Ram has a thing for the color yellow. The Yellow Rose also comes in the same Stinger Yellow paint seen here, but we like that the Sport adds more aggressive styling. There are two wide, black racing stripes; prominent hood vents like those on the 1500 Rebel; and 22-inch wheels (20 inches on 4x4 models).

The Stinger Yellow Sport will be offered in crew-cab 4x2 and 4x4 configurations. Under the hood will be a 395-horsepower, 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 mated to an eight-speed TorqueFlite transmission. Inside, most of the upholstery will be black with accent details in Light Black Chrome and yellow. The uplevel UConnect multimedia system with navigation and the 8.4-inch screen is standard.

Keep an eye out for the Ram 1500 Stinger Yellow Sport when it lands in dealerships in this month. Ram says that only 2,250 of the special-edition trucks will be produced, with a starting price of $44,340 including destination.

LOWEST PAYLOAD IN CLASS.

POWER STEERING FAILURES.

POOR CRASH RATINGS.

BEND OVER.

RAM !

Wheels, stripes, yellow... that it?

Fiats been taking window licking "special" edition lessons from GM. The only difference is Fiat likes yellow and GM likes black.

Ford likes white, GM black and Fiat has most colors to choose from. Is choice a bad thing ? I don't think so.

Kind of disappointed. All that visual impact but no increased HP? FCA should have put the 6.4 in this truck. After all, it's already available in the 2500, so how much extra engineering would it have taken to put it in the 1500?

@mrob
6.4 would be disappointing, but Hellcat. ...Hmmm. I would need to have it.

Old news, heard this the other day. This isn't one of THOSE cars that are acceptable in yellow! MEH

Im surprised the article about the new silverado avalanche looking truck is not here yet.

Oh boy, ram had a bunch of yeller paint left over so they had to use it before the born on date ran out. What a waste of yeller paint.

Looks good!

Great, now that we have all the TRV!!s in one post, can you all please stay here.

Your's truly, PUTC Reader.

Ram must have sold a few " Yellow rose of Texas " editions, why not a yellow stinger edition. It will certainly look better than the FORD "yellow belly" editions with lame 4.6 or 5.4 from mid 2000's.

@GMSrgreat, or like Chevys.......oh wait chevy has not made a copy of the ram or Ford yet, but will several years down the road as always.

When are the myopic Ram designers going to learn that there is room in this product offering for a sporty manual transmission?
It is listed as a “Sport” vehicle after all. This is not rocket science….

=========================.

Anyone else think Nitro is a special needs person? Some of the things he says makes me wonder. I feel bad for picking on him if he really is mentally handicapped, but if he is really that plain stupid then I don't feel bad at all.

NMGOM must agreed, bring back the manual transmissions!

See this is how dumb you are Frankie kiddo.

"More specifically, we recycle a lot of old stuff – plastics, "post-industrial yarns" (which are not tales of the after-manufacturing apocalypse, apparently) – and bioproducts into things like seats and doors. While it's a good green message to get out, Ford also happens to save, by its own calculations, approximately $4.5 million by recycling materials. Add in the 25 to 30 million pounds of plastic diverted from the landfill, and it's a pretty convincing deal."


What are tard you are

@dildoe,

You really hit the nail on the head with you utter idiocy, that's actually a good thing for Ford to use recyclable items to build cars. I'm glad Ford takes the Environment into consideration, unlike other MFGer's that make poor products and make no profit.

Thanks for the link, you're a TOOL.

What are tard you are

You're calling me names when you can't even get yourself together.

Your rock is waiting for you to crawl under.

I'm not sure sometimes what you are referring to with your comments, but I know your a good guy. Hey I just followed a new black mustang through town and I though, Ford stole the rear quarter panels right off of your Camaro. Why can't they make their own design.

Wow I made a typo kid, my point was just bout everything is made from garbage stupid.

And now for some real news....Ford Motor Company is recalling 75,364 model year 2014-2015 Ford Exploders manufactured January 17, 2014 to May 31, 2014.

The recalled vehicles may have improperly welded rear suspension toe links that may fracture.

A fracture of the rear suspension toe link may result in a loss of steering control, increasing the risk of a crash.

Another job well done by Ford....lol

Yawn

Looks good at the Ram service department.

Hey Nitro : What are your thoughts on the new Camaro ? Is it enough for you to trade that awesome looking Camaro you currently drive ?

It doesn't matter what color ram your in when you crash because your lower body is going to be left in the truck.

Some people shouldn't be allowed to post on here. I have to read through mostly crap to find an actual comment that isn't trash talk. I guess some of these guys never had many friends growing up?

a lot of Ram haters in here

I have browsed this web site for some time now and the one thing most of you don't get is ..........Be HAPPY THERE ARE OTHER TYPES OF TRUCKS. Everyone here has there own taste....So be glad we live in an age where we have enough variety to choose what we want to drive..Hell we all here work hard for our money so we should have a selection on what we want to drive when it comes to trucks

There is a 10 year old Ram Super Bee truck I see occasionally when I am driving. It is a similar yellow but it is a single cab. Nice truck and well maintained. It is interesting to see some diversity and it would be dull if everyone drove the same truck.

Hahahahah LMAO!!!!!! Instead, "Natethegrape" is working on fixing his upper l-shaft that Ford riveted improperly on the F150, which can cause it to separate. If that happens, drivers lose steering control without warning.

After he fixes that he'll work on the Ford transmission that slips out of gear....lol

More good work from Ford!
