Default Last Ram thread? What is this special edition Ram!

I was talking about Rams with a knowledgeable friend. He goes, "I know you love orange and yellow cars. Ram made some special edition in 2017 (Ram Sport) in a bright orange/tangerine color. Have you looked at them?!"

I thought he was high. I never knew Ram made a tangerine special edition called the Ram Sport in 2017. I am in love with it. It's the best looking truck I've ever seen. Trying to learn more about it. Anybody know the HP/Torque figures on these? It seems they only made 1,500 of them. MSRP was $44k. I'm seeing high mileage ones (like 50k miles) for $30k. F that. I did find one seemingly good deal locally.

Heres my question...is this a good deal?! Tough to tell considering how few there are. More expensive than a new Tradesman, but this seems to be fully loaded. I love it, but not sure if this is a decent deal. More than I was set on spending, but since I love how this looks and they don't make them anymore, I may kick in extra $$$.

BTW...does this Ram Sport have the "full" backseat vs the Rams I was looking at which where cheaper (quad vs crew cab)?


So this backseat is bigger than a 2018 Ram with the "smaller" backseat, right?

That one is a crew cab. There doesn't appear to be anything special done to the 5.7L engine, from the factory, that is.

BTW, I just made an offer of $28,500. I'll let you know how it goes...

I know, but when you look at it, visually, it looks like a quad cab. It looks way bigger than a crew cab. Could be an optical illusion, but it just doesn't look nearly as small as a crew cab.

Yeah, but it has heated steering wheel, heated seats, etc. Looks like HID lights (which I don't think the base 2018 Ram Tradesman has). Looks like it's a minimally optioned "Big Horn equivalent".

And FYI...I hate leather. The cloth works for me. I would have gotten cloth in the C5 if I could.


Back to this truck...why isnt it a good deal at $36k? Or let's say I can get it for $33,500? It was $44k new and only been driven 8k miles...seems like a good deal?

What Hemi is in it? 395 hp? Trouble finding accurate information on this. I did find that the Sport edition had upgraded gears (3.90? from 3.21?). Gas mileage looks pretty bad, though. But don't the 2018s come with 3.90 gears?

It is priced like that because they are banking on someone like you falling in love with it. There is literally nothing special about it besides color and orange cloth seats. And no, those are not HID's. They are just projector halogens.

Calm down, bro. I'm not a troll. Not an idiot. I'm asking questions about a truck I don't know enough about before I strongly consider buying it.

I got a pre approval for a loan that could go further than this, but trying to get the best Ram at the best price.

I love this one because the Inferno Orange does look pretty amazing. Its Hemi and 4x4. That color combo is just sex. I hate getting ripped off for an "appearance package", but G damn, that's the best looking modern truck I've ever seen.

F. Didn't know that. Do the 2018 Rams have HIDs standard? If not, how much ish is "fair price" to upgrade to HIDs? Or do you need one of those BS $8k packages like Chevy does (upgrade from 2LT to LTZ at say $8k to get one option at $500 you want).

I hate these BS option packages they do now. Like 20 years, you wanted fog lights, you added them for $200. Now you need some fing ridiculous $7k package for the "right" to add an additional $200 fog light upgrade.

Post a pic of your preapproval? Black out the personal information.
