FCA has launched the Sub Zero Package for the Ram 1500 Classic. A Canada-exclusive, it’s been designed to make winter driving more pleasant and adds a CAD $1,495 (USD $1,124) premium to the pickup truck’s sticker price.
Available for the ST, Tradesman and Express grades, the Sub Zero Package adds a bunch of features such as heated front seats, leather-wrapped heated steering wheel and remote start.
The 10-way, electrically adjustable driver’s seat with two-way power lumbar adjustment, overhead console, 115V power outlet, Uconnect 3 infotainment system with 5-inch touchscreen display, SiriusXM satellite radio with free one-year subscription, hands-free communication and security alarm are also standard.
“The new Sub Zero Package was designed by Canadians for Canadians”, said FCA Canada President and CEO, Reid Bigland. “We created an exclusive package with affordable, all-weather comfort and conveniences to complement the award-winning capability and features of our Ram 1500 Classic, helping our Ram customers better conquer tough Canadian winters from coast to coast.”
Pricing for the 2019 Ram 1500 Classis starts at CAD $26,179 (USD $19,677) for the ST and goes up to CAD $35,975 (USD $27,040) for the Warlock.
