2017 Ram 1500 Night Package

The automobile industry never ceases to amaze me. While some
buyers are looking for the most exclusive hyper cars, others
opt to pay top dollar to get customized models all in a bid to
look unique and different from the crowd. Well, you will be
surprised to learn that the huge urge for customization is also
creeping to the truck segment and it is not about getting
different cabin sizes or cargo beds as you might think; 
but rather it is all about getting  exclusive packages,
“Black themed Packages” to be specific.

Not to be left out, Ram has also joined the bandwagon and has
released a Night Package for its Ram 1500 truck available on
the Sport trim only. As the name suggests, the 2017 Ram 1500
Night Package features a range of dark trim pieces and
accenting which make the model look as if it has gone through
an aftermarket design house. Read along to find out what sets
Ram 1500 models with the Night package apart from regular ones:


Why the package

As mentioned above, many buyers are currently looking for
factory-custom vehicles. Many are looking to set themselves
apart in a bid to define their personality and tastes. The
package sets the model apart from regular ones.

What the 2017 Ram 1500 Night Package offers

The package is based on the Sport trim which is powered by a
3.6 L, Pentastar V-6 mill or the 5.7 L, Hemi V-8 which are
offered in either 2WD or 4WD. The truck is also offered in all
cab and bed options. In addition, the trim features a
monochromatic paint theme which augurs well with the black
features and accenting of the package.


The black theme begins at the front where the grille and its
halo surround feature a flat black color. The grille inserts
dubbed “Hex Perf” by the automaker also feature a black color.
The flat black theme continues on the gigantic RAM logo on the
model’s tailgate at the rear.

On the sides, the badges on the doors continue the black theme
while the package brings on board 20-inch aluminum wheels which
feature a glossy black color. The wheels are wrapped in 5-spoke
275/60R-series all-season tires. If a buyer opts for the Hemi
engine and 4WD, the badges are also colored in black. The
models with the Package are offered in five color choices, they
are Bright White, Bright Silver Metallic, Flame Red, Brilliant
Black and Granite Crystal Metallic.


Much about the exterior, on the inside the Package offers
high-back bucket front seats. There is also a full center
console. The front seats and the steering wheel are heated.
Other features and options of the Ram 1500 remain. In addition,
if you want to further set you Ram 1500 apart, you can opt for
dealer-supplied add-ons such as a sport performance hood, a
dual-purpose bed divider and extender as well as black running
boards. Further, you can get a cold-air intake and cat-black
exhaust system from Mopar.
