The beautiful pickup in the image above is the 2018 Ram 1500 Hydro Blue Sport and it is the newest special-edition package offered by the Ram Truck brand. This will also be the last special-edition package offered during the 2017 calendar year, so if you have been holding off on buying a Ram 1500 Sport in a “high impact color”, this is your final chance until sometime next year.
This package comes on the heels of the Sublime Sport and the Copper Sport models earlier this year, as well as the Ignition Orange Sport in 2016.
“The custom look and high-impact colors have been well received in the marketplace and this new Ram 1500 Hydro Blue Sport will surely stand out on dealers’ lots and in customers’ driveways,” said Mike Manley, Head of Jeep & Ram Brands. “Enthusiasts demand that their trucks get noticed and our Ram 1500 Sport lineup delivers a durable, powerful alternative with great visual appeal.”
