We know the new 2019 Ram 1500 will make its debut at the 2018 North American International Auto Show, but Ram isn’t finished with the current truck just yet. On Thursday, the brand revealed the 2018 Ram 1500 Sport Hydro Blue edition. What’s so special about it? It’s in the name: it sports a unique blue color.
The Hydro Blue Sport edition follows the Sublime Green and Copper Sport editions, which debuted earlier this year. Ram said the Hydro Blue edition is the final special edition of the Sport model this year. In terms of extra features, there isn’t anything new, so to speak, but the Hydro Sport edition adds a Sport performance hood with black decals, Sport grille with black billet inserts, and black “RAM” letter badge on the front grille. What sets the Hydro Blue apart most significantly are the body-colored front fascia, rear bumper, side mirrors, and door handles. Each component wears the bright Hydro Blue exterior color. Buyers can also equip optional 22-inch wheel on 4×2 models, while the big wheels are standard on 4×4 trucks; 20-inch wheels are standard on 4×2 trucks.
Inside—you guessed it—Ram included more Hydro Blue components. Color contrast stitching, blue embroidered headrests, and various blue anodized surfaces compliment the standard black interior.
Ram will build 2,000 Hydro Blue editions and buyers will find the trucks at dealership lots this month. Pricing starts a $47,455, including destination.
