Ram launches 2nd installment of ‘Built to Serve’ Trucks
Ram Truck has just announced its plans of producing the second installment of the "Built to Serve Edition" Ram 1500 half-ton pickup trucks in its Sterling Heights Assembly Plant in Michigan.
And their inspiration is the United States' five land, sea, and air-based armed forces.
The "Built to Serve Edition" is the second installment of the original "Built to Serve Edition" trucks released in the last quarter of 2019.
The second edition was released this month, and coincided with the U.S.' Flag Day last June 14.
According to FCA, it will release "Built to Serve Edition" models that represent "another one of America's land, air or sea-based military branches, will launch approximately every three months".
The original one (or the first edition) came with two specially selected exterior paint colors that showed the mission and history of the five U.S. military service branches.
Meanwhile, the second edition now adds a a nautical-inspired theme using both Ceramic Gray and Patriot Blue exterior colors alongside a black interior with Light Ambassador Blue accent stitching.
The second installment of the "Built to Serve Edition" Ram trucks are offered in the following colors and numbers:
- Gator (1,000 units) and Diamond Black (1,000)
- Ceramic Gray (1,000) and Patriot Blue (1,000)
- Anvil (1,000) and Billet Silver (1,000)
- Tank (1,000) and Flame Red (1,000)
