Article by Christian A., on March 27, 2015

Light trucks remain hot sellers in the United States, even hotter than the overall light-vehicle market – which is why automakers like Ford, General Motors, Fiat Chrysler and Toyota are putting their best foot forward to capture a chunk of this growth. For instance, FCA’s Ram brand, is launching two new packages -- Ram 1500 Ignition Orange Sport and Ram 1500 Black Sport -- to appeal to more consumers as the spring and early-summer selling season starts.

Customers can place their orders this week with production of the trucks set to begin in April at 1,000 trucks under each package. The Ignition Orange Sport 1500 package boasts of a black-striped vented hood, orange interior stitching, embroidered orange logos and orange mesh on the seat inserts.

On the other hand, the Black Sport 1500 package features black 20-inch wheels, an all-black grille, a vented hood and a black interior with leather and light black chrome accents. The packages are priced at $1,595 and are on top of the standard equipment on the 1500 Sport.

A Ram 1500 Sport Crew Cab 4x2 has a starting price of $42,215, including shipping. Both trucks will feature a 395-hp, Hemi V-8 engine and eight-speed automatic transmission and dual exhaust as well as the Uconnect system with navigation and standard rearview camera system.

Ram already sold 59,916 big pickups in the first two months of 2015. Large pickup sales have surged 12 percent in the first two months of 2015 while the light-truck market have grown 15 percent. The overall car and truck market, meanwhile, gained 9.2 percent in the first two months of 2015.

Regarded as one of the most recognizable pickups on the road, the Ram 1500 is designed to lead its class in terms of fuel economy thanks to a number of innovative, fuel-saving systems and first-in-segment technologies. For instance, the Ram 1500 is equipped with TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission and stop-start system, as well as active aerodynamics (like grille shutters and air suspension). The Ram 1500 also features thermal management system and pulse-width modulation. While it leads its class in terms of fuel efficiency, the Ram 1500 also offers unmatched levels torque and superb towing capability.

With an EcoDiesel engine under its hood, the Ram 1500 was rated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to deliver 29 mpg on the highway – the best rating ever given to a full-size, half-ton pickup.

The Ram Truck Brand has been a stand-alone division since 2009. Since then, the Ram Truck Brand has surged to become an industry leader with a goal to build the best pickup trucks and commercial vehicles.

By building a unique character for Ram Trucks, the brand was able to focus on core customers and features they deem as important. Ram Truck essentially has the truck market covered. For instance, it offers the Ram 1500 for a family, a Ram 3500 Heavy Duty for business owners, or Ram ProMaster commercial van for daily deliveries.

A part of its heavy commitment to capability, efficiency, durability and innovation, Ram Truck makes substantial investments into its products. All of its offerings deliver not just appealing exteriors and refined interiors, they also boast of durable engines as well as exclusive element that help enhance their capabilities.
