Ram Drums Up More Buzz for 1500 with Two New Sport Models
Ignition Orange Sport and Black Sport Limited Editions Feature Standard Hemi
Ram Truck announced today that it would be adding two new 1500 buzz models (their words, not ours) for the Sport trim level. Available in either black or scorching Ignition Orange, both trucks start as Ram 1500 Sport crew cabs before receiving a few extra goodies.
As with all Ram 1500 Sports, the special editions come standard with the 5.7L Hemi V-8. The Ignition and Black are equipped with a 3.92:1 rear axle ratio and eight-speed TorqueFlite automatic transmission, a combo that should provide brisk acceleration. Both are available in 4x2 and 4x4 drivetrains.
The Ignition Orange buzz model comes in the eponymous shade, with a vented hood with matte-black accents. Seat embroidery and accents in the exterior color provide some zest to the otherwise black interior. The Black buzz model, predictably, comes murdered out, with black paint, black wheels, black headlight bezels, and a black leather interior with Light Black chrome accents. The hood from the Ram 1500 Black Express shows up on the Sport Black.
Standard navigation, dual exhausts, 20-inch wheels, and an 8.4-inch Uconnect infotainment system come with both packages, which cost $1,595 over the price of a Ram 1500 Sport crew cab. That strikes us as a reasonable bargain for people who want a distinctive and well-equipped sporty pickup.
