Ram dropped a stylish limited edition Copper Sport for a fortunate 3,000 buyers. The bold $45k pickup sports a copper pearl paint job with body color grill against a black-decaled sport performance hood, black Ram’s head grille badge, black tailgate badge and black body-side badges.
Big 20 inch or 22-inch polished aluminum wheels are available for the 4×2 or 4×4 models.
Interior features in the Copper Sport include Copper-colored accent stitching throughout the cabin, Sport embroidery on the deluxe bucket seats, color-accent Ram’s head embroidery on the headrests and sport mesh on the seat inserts.
Anodized Copper-painted spears and trim rings look really cool against the black headliner and pillars.
