Ram has decided to add a personalized package called 2018 Ram 1500 Hydro Blue Sport Special Edition to its Ram 1500 pickup series. The hydro blue special edition stands out from a crowd of black, silver, white, and red pickups. The automaker recently divulged that this version is going to be limited to only 2,000 copies in the United States.
Apparently, Ram built the 2018 Ram 1500 Hydro Blue Sports in response to customer reactions over Copper, Sublime Green, and Ignition Sports versions that premiered in the 2017 model year. The head of FCA’s Ram and Jeep, one Mike Manley, was quoted as saying:” we’ve crafted this model to respond to buyer demands in the marketplace. As you can see, it boasts a custom look and high-impact exterior colors that stand out in driveways”.
2018 Ram 1500 Hydro Blue Sport – Attractive Blue Color
The 2018 Ram 1500 Hydro Blue Sport is a unique Ram 1500 variant with a vivid monochromatic blue. This edition also highlights blue body-colored sports grille with black insets alongside a sports performance hood with black markers. The overall badging for the truck is black.
The machine’s new Hydro Blue grille proves handy in amplifying its exterior appearance. We also find the black Ram 1500’s head logo alongside 4×4 badges that offer a dramatic contrast with its Hydro Blue tailgate. A sports hood decal with black strips gives the Hydro Blue Sport a commanding presence from all points of view.
The LED taillamps and black bezel projector headlights personalize the exterior treatment of the large Hydro Blue package. The front façade, door handles, side doors and rear bumper carry the blue paint scheme. The 4×2 Hydro Blue Sports prototypes ride on refined 22-inch aluminum wheels, whereas their 4×4 equivalents convey standard 20-inch wheels.
Comfort and Durability of the Interior
The 2018 Ram 1500 Hydro Blue Sport has a top-notch interior which complements an eye-catching exterior. Ram has built the truck’s cabin for absolute comfort and durability. The blue stitching is also visible on the heated steering wheel, instrument cluster, and door trim.
Other color-matched details comprise such things as blue anodized façades on the instrument panel and console, as well as blue embroidery accents on the seats. We can also spot Blue Sports embroidery on heated bucket seats with mesh supplements. Blue Ram logos are evident on the headrests.
Options Available On Order
For those who prefer a black-and-blue theme, this 2018 Ram 1500 Hydro Blue Sport is available for order with the optional gloss black aluminum wheels. That means that 4×2 models ride exclusively on 22-inch wheels while both 4×4 and 4×2 models can have 20-inch wheels. The other options available may include the RamBox storage system, chrome wheel-to-wheel side steps, black tubular side steps, ParkSense and also a Active Level air suspension.
