Riding the wave of pickup truck special editions, Ram will introduce another new model at the 2017 Chicago Auto Show. Based off the monochromatic Ram 1500 Sport, which delivers a clean, sporty look with the traditional crosshair grille, the new Copper Sport will be offered on the crew-cab platform with the 5.7-liter V-8 Hemi engine.
This marks the first time Ram has offered standard 22-inch aluminum rims on a special edition (4x2 only) and the first time it's used Copper Pearl as an exterior color (the interior gets a few Copper Pearl accents as well). Four-wheel-drive models will get the same style of aluminum rims, but only in 20-inch-diameter size. The new Copper Sport will go on sale later this month, starting at $46,950 (including a $1,320 destination fee) for two-wheel-drive models.
Ram said it will make only 3,000 Copper Sport half tons; there is no word whether the package will be offered for Ram's heavy-duty lineup. Watch for our video of the new package as part of our 2017 Chicago Auto Show coverage.
