Ram re­vises range for 2017 model year

New Zealand LCV - - NEWS | USA – 2017 RAMS -

RAM ROLLED OUT UP­DATES TO THE 1500 Rebel and Ram Limited pick-up trucks in April.

The off-road ori­ented 1500 adds a sev­enth colour op­tion, Del­monico Red, a deep red that’s avail­able in mono­tone or two-tone with black lower pan­els.

Buy­ers can also or­der it with the Rebel Black (black wheels and front skid plate) ap­pear­ance pack­age.

Del­monico Red Rebels have black and gray in­te­ri­ors with black an­odised bezels on the doors, cen­tre con­sole, in­stru­ment panel and gauge clus­ter trim rings.

The all-black heated seats have black Rebel em­broi­dery high­lighted by light slate grey ac­cent stitch­ing.

Ram 1500 Rebels have raised ride heights, 33-inch all-ter­rain tyres, Bil­stein shock ab­sorbers, skid plates, tow hooks and other off-road-ready fea­tures.

The trucks are avail­able in three short­wheel­base Crew Cab con­fig­u­ra­tions with a stan­dard 4x4 trans­mis­sion, a 228kw/365nm 3.6-litre Pen­tas­tar V6 engine and a Torque­flite 8 gear­box combo.

Op­tional is a 5.7-litre Hemi V8 with vari­able valve tim­ing, fuel-saver tech­nol­ogy and 295kw and 556Nm of torque. It’s mated to a Torque­flite eight-speed trans­mis­sion and is avail­able in rear-wheel drive and 4x4 ver­sions.

On top-of-the-line Ram Limit­eds, body­colour R-A-M tail­gate let­ters and side steps re­place chrome equiv­a­lents for 2017.

Ram 1500, 2500 and 3500 Limited trim pick­ups can now be or­dered with monochro­matic R-A-M tail­gate let­ters as an al­ter­na­tive to the stan­dard bright chrome let­ters in­tro­duced last year. The body-colour tail­gate let­ters and newly-in­tro­duced body-colour cab-length run­ning boards are added-cost op­tions.

Ram Limit­eds have all-black, full-leather seat­ing, real wood in­te­rior com­po­nents and unique badges.

The Limited’s bil­let port grille breaks from Ram’s crosshair styling with bold RAM let­ter­ing, and it has a bolder tail­gate de­sign and all-new 20-inch forged multi-sur­face alu­minium wheels.

In­side the cab, the deep con­sole bin houses a cell­phone and tablet holder, which can be con­cealed with a tam­bour slid­ing door made from Black Ar­gento wood.

The Ram 1500 Limited has an ac­tive air sus­pen­sion sys­tem with five set­tings: en­try/ exit, aero mode, nor­mal ride height, off-road 1 and off-road 2.

For 2017, Ram 2500 and 3500 heavy-duty Laramie, Longhorn and Limited mod­els get a stan­dard 6.4-litre HEMI petrol V8.

Heavy-duty Longhorn and Limited 4x4s also get stan­dard Bil­stein mono­tube shock ab­sorbers.
