Ram has revealed two new special edition pickups on the eve of the 2017 Chicago Auto Show.

For its half-ton, Ram is going to offer the 1500 Copper Sport, adding a fresh color, new graphics and a revised interior. The monochromatic theme starts with the Copper paint job and is offset by a black Ram’s head grille badge, black tailgate badge and black side badges.

Sitting under the truck are 22-inch polished aluminum wheels, though customers who order four-wheel drive have to make due with 20-inch wheels.

Inside, the Copper color continues in the stitching, seat embroidery and the anodized trim pieces found on the dash. An all-black headliner complete the looks. An upgraded Alpine nine-speaker sound system is also part of this truck’s standard equipment list.

Just 3,000 of these special editions will be built for 2017, all of which will be Crew Cab V8-powered models, starting at $46,950 including destination. The 1500 Copper Sport will hit dealerships later this month.
