Ram Tries to Add Some Excitement to 1500, Rebel Lineup

1

The Ram 1500 Sublime and Ram Rebel Blue Streak will bow at the 2017 New York Auto Show.

Both are new option packages that aim to strengthen Ram’s factory-custom trend and color palette, with the Ram 1500 Sublime Sport offering a bold new green monochromatic exterior with body-color grille. The 2017 Ram 1500 Sublime Sport also features a Sport performance hood with black wheels, black Ram’s head grille badge, black tailgate badge and black body-side badges. For two-wheel-drive models, large 22-inch black aluminum wheels are available for the first time, while 20-inch wheels are available on the four-wheel-drive models.

On the inside, the pickup boasts Lime Green accent stitching throughout the cabin, accent-color Ram’s head embroidery on the headrests and sport mesh seat inserts. There’s also a Lime Green Sport badge prominently placed on the glove box door. Minor interior details include anodized black-painted spears and trim rings.

The 2017 Ram 1500 Sublime Sport will be limited to 3,000 units and is available on Crew Cab V8 models with a starting MSRP of $47,135 including destination and will start arriving dealerships next month.
