Blue is the new hue of power and performance. The custom, high-impact color of the new special-edition 2018 Ram 1500 Hydro Blue builds on the durability and power of the Ram 1500 with an alternative appearance and attitude that stands out everywhere. The 2018 Ram 1500 Hydro Blue is this year’s final special-edition Sport model, and includes a Hydro Blue monochromatic appearance package with details designed to complement the new, cutting-edge paint color.
Attitude by Design
In addition to the Hydro Blue paint color, this special-edition truck includes a black-decaled Sport Performance Hood, new-for-2018 body-colored Sport grille with black billet inserts and black R-A-M letter badge, as well as flat black exterior body-side and tailgate badging. These details combine for a menacing, athletic appearance that looks as good on the highway as it does parked at a tailgate.
All in the Details
And when it comes to details, the special-edition 2018 Ram 1500 Hydro Blue doesn’t miss a single mark. The black bezel projector headlamps and LED taillamps complement the black body-side badging, and the monochromatic exterior theme is tied together with a body-colored front fascia, rear bumper, side mirrors and door handles. Standard on 4×2 models are forged, polished 22-inch aluminum wheels; 4×4 models feature standard polished 20-inch wheels.
It’s What’s on the Inside
Inside, the special-edition Ram 1500 Hydro Blue Sport takes comfort and style up a notch with features like blue color-matched highlight stitching on the instrument panel, heated steering wheel and door trim. Blue Sport embroidery accents the deluxe high-back black bucket heated front seats with mesh inserts, while blue Ram’s-head logos flank the headrests. Blue anodized surfaces cover the instrument panel bezels, center console trim, door spears as well as a new instrument panel badge. A black headliner rounds out the interior package, and leather-trimmed seating is optional.
Other optional features include 22-inch (4×2 only) and 20-inch (4×4) gloss black aluminum wheels, black tubular side steps, chrome wheel-to-wheel side steps, Active-Level™ Four-Corner Air Suspension and the RamBox® Cargo Management System.
