Is this a case of "Gotta-have-it Green?"

The Ram 1500 might be long in the tooth, but that’s not stopping Ram from injecting fun into its pickup. Ahead of the 2017 New York Auto Show, Ram has released two special edition models for its 1500 pickup – the Rebel Blue Streak and this, the Sublime Sport. This special edition model comes with can’t-miss-it paint, 22-inch wheels, and black accents.

“The Ram 1500 Sublime Sport and Rebel Blue Streak expand our offerings in factory-custom trucks and give dealers a more extensive color palette to excite customers who are looking for something unique,” said Mike Manley, Head of Ram Brand.

Those familiar with Fiat Chrysler’s lineup shouldn’t be surprised at the bright color. We’ve seen Dodge and Jeep products wearing similarly fluorescent colors. Ram is limiting the Sublime Sport package to roughly 3,000 examples. Only the Ram 1500 Crew Cab with the 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 can be ordered with the package.

Of course, there are more details, so keep reading for the full run-down.

The Sublime Sport package is a mid-year update to the 2017 Ram 1500. And as mentioned earlier, only Ram 1500s with the Crew Cab and 5.7-liter Hemi will be offered with this special edition package. The Sublime Sport is built off the Sport trim, meaning it comes with a body-colored grille, bumpers, and side mirrors. The Sport Hood is also standard, too.

The Sublime Sport is built off the Sport trim, meaning it comes with a body-colored grille, bumpers, and side mirrors. The Sport Hood is also standard, too.

Ram fittingly calls the color Lime Green. The color is accented by matte black stripes on the hood, along with matching black badges on the door, grille, and tailgate. The grille also gets chrome inserts. The truck comes standard in 2WD form and rides on 22-inch, five-spoke, black wheels. Optionally, customers can get 4WD, which uses 20-inch black wheels with thicker sidewall tires.

Inside, the Ram comes with black cloth and leather seating accented by Lime Green contrast stitching. The bright color continues onto the contrast stitching on the dashboard, steering wheel, door panels, and the Sport badge on the glove box. Black anodized aluminum accents on the center console and around the 8.4-inch Uconnect system continues the black-accented theme from outside.
