Ram Truck released details of the Moparized Ram 1500 Express pickup truck, previously known as the Adventurer, offering an sportier alternative for younger buyers.
For its niche market the Ram 1500 Express has lots of customization and personalization potential. Mopar has announced that it will have hundreds of accessories available for buyers who are looking to personalize their Ram 1500 Express. Some of the factory-installed options include chrome tubular side steps, Mopar chrome steel bed rails, folding and heated trailer-tow power mirrors with supplemental signals and courtesy lamps, spray-in bedliner and under-rail bedliner.
Same story applies for the interior where you get loads of stuff for personalization. Buyers can choose a cloth 40/20/40 split-bench seat, Uconnect voice command with Bluetooth, rear-view auto-dim mirror, remote USB port, sliding rear window, cruise control, instrument cluster with vehicle information center display screen, tire pressure monitoring display, power one-touch windows, remote keyless entry, Sirius Satellite Radio and either carpet or rubber floor mats.
That is in addition to the standard features of the car which itself is a long list. This Ram really offers astonishing value for money, specially as it comes with a 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine with 390 horsepower and 407 lb.-ft. of torque, which does 20 mpg.
The new Ram model will also get fog lamps and 20-inch aluminum wheels with locking lug nuts. There’s also a locking tailgate, cargo lamp, rear-bumper step pad, 6″ x 9″ side-view mirrors and rear wheel-well liners. What’s more it is available in eight exterior colors including Bright Silver Metallic, Bright White, Brilliant Black Crystal Pearl, Deep Cherry Red Crystal Pearl; Deep Water Blue Pearl; Flame Red, Hunter Green Pearl and Mineral Gray Metallic.
