The pickup trucks are supposed to be practical work vehicles, but the upcoming 2017 Ram 1500 Copper Sport pickup is something different. Just like you can see in the name of this model, the Ram will offer a new special edition version of this massive pickup. This model will be introduced at the approaching 2017 Chicago Auto Show.

It will combine already available Ram 1500 Sport package with the new copper exterior color – more precisely Copper Pearl.
