Ram Introduces Updated 1500 Sport And New Black Editions

Ram recently unveiled the 1500 Limited Tungsten Edition and the company is following that up by introducing the updated Ram Sport and the new Big Horn and Lone Star Black editions.

Starting with the Ram Sport, the 2018 model gains a body-color “RAM” grille in response to numerous customer requests. Little else has changed but the truck can be equipped with black wheels and black badges or polished aluminum wheels and chrome badges.

The 2018 Ram 1500 Sport will be priced from $44,395. A Sport Appearance package will also be available on Ram 2500 and 3500 models in Big Horn, Lone Star, and Laramie trims. Ram didn’t say how much the package costs but the cheapest model with the Sport Appearance package starts at $45,335.

Moving on the, Black package for the Ram 1500 Big Horn and Lone Star gives the truck a monotone appearance thanks to a blacked out grille and a black paint job. The truck also has black headlight bezels, black badges, and black wheels.

Both models will be priced from $44,290 which excludes a $1,395 destination fee.

The changes are relatively minor but Ram is focused on developing the next-generation 1500 which could be unveiled at the North American International Auto Show early next year.

    Halogen headlights? Yay FCA! Old school style in 2018. Morons.

      What’s wron with them? Even today most cars use halogen headlights because they’re simply, bulb often easy to change and cheap – now try it with HID with self-leveling or LED when they burnt (yeep dude, they no longer longlife) or get moisture – see the price for the lamp itself…

    They need to stick with the Crosshair grille. The alternate RAM grilles look like over-designed aftermarket messes.

    Some more displays of FCA management excellence. Lets take a once best-seller and run it into the ground by never providing a meaningful update. They’ve done the same with Grand Cherokee, 300, Charger, etc. Seems like FCA’s strategy was, “lets spend as little money as possible, tart up the old models with big engines and some stickers, and the dumb american will buy this old crap and think its new”. Sorry to say, it wont work. And this “new” old looking RAM? Nah. Seriously, why would anyone want this old, outdated, truck compared with a modern F-150, Tundra, etc unless you could secure a ridiculous discount on it?
