Ram’s latest special edition is easy to spot

Special edition pickups are extremely popular these days, with nearly every brand offering some sort of appearance or special equipment package designed to dress up the truck. Well Ram is the latest to do so, introducing the Ram 1500 Stinger Yellow Sport.

The truck is based on the Ram 1500 Crew Cab fitted with the mid-grade Sport trim level. Customers can choose between 2WD or 4WD, but the truck’s main standard equipment includes the venerable 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 and eight-speed automatic transmission. The truck also boasts chrome-tipped dual exhaust pipes, a hood with functional scoops, and large wheels. Specifically, 2WD models come with 22-inch rollers while 4WD models have 20-inch wheels.

The cabin includes a predominately black appearance with black leather seats. Changes brought by the Stinger Yellow package include Light Black Chrome and yellow details. The seats are accented by body-color stitching, a yellow Ram’s head logo on the headrests, and matching yellow sport mesh inserts on the seat backs. Infotainment wise, the 8.4-inch Uconnect system with navigation and rear-view camera comes standard.

Prices for the Ram 1500 Stinger Yellow Sport start at $43,145 before the $1,195 destination charge. Expect to see the Stinger Yellow Sport in dealerships beginning in early May 2016.

What makes the Ram 1500 Stinger Yellow Sport special

The Ram 1500 has been around in its current configuration for a few years now, so its no wonder FCA brass is adding life to the pickup with a special edition. The Stinger Yellow package also competes with General Motors’ long list of special editions for the Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra pickups.

The Ram makes a solid case for itself thanks to its sporty nature, competitive asking price, and Hemi V-8. The engine is perhaps the most attractive aspect of the Ram – at least in terms of making it feel like a muscle truck. It generates 395 horsepower and 410 pound-feet of torque and makes all the right noises thanks to dual exhaust system that comes standard on the Ram 1500 Sport.
