If design plays just as an important role as durability when choosing your pickup-truck than the new 2017 Ram 1500 Copper Sport is the perfect vehicle for you. This the latest special copper coated edition truck from RAM that just debuted at the 2017 Chicago Auto Show. This new model proves that even if pickup trucks were built to be modern work horses and practical utility vehicles, no one says you cannot ride in style.
The 2017 Ram 1500 Copper Sport is basically the Ram 1500 Sport package with a brand-new, although ultra-luxurious paintjob color named Copper Pearl. Design-wise, the new 1500 incorporates some appealing new features. Standout exterior features include anew copper-colored grille, a sport hood with twin hood scoops and black decals, as well as some black Ram badges on the sides. Furthermore, there is a new tailgate and a set of 22-inch polished aluminum wheels for the rear wheel drive models, while the all-wheel drive models come with 20-inchers.
Inside, the Copper Sport’s cabin continues the copper theme with some copper-plated accents on the dash, door, and center stack. Even the stitching on the seats is copper colored. Speaking of the seats, the deluxe bucket seats are included in this model and they feature the Sport trim embroidery, as well as the sport mesh inserts and a ram’s head on the headrest. The interior is filled with all the latest high-tech features, and the nine-speaker Alpine sound system with a subwoofer might be one of the standouts that is included in this package.
