Check out the Ram 1500 Built to Serve Edition

The Ram 1500 Built to Serve Edition is a regular special model that has been with us since 2019. Every edition of this Ram truck honours one aspect of American society, army, navy, air force and so on. This latest version honours the firefighters.

 

“After honoring each branch of the U.S. Armed Forces with our initial ‘Built to Serve’ models, we felt it would be equally important to also extend our gratitude to all first responders who serve or have served our communities,” said Mike Koval Jr., Ram brand chief executive officer, Stellantis.

 

We don’t track every single edition, as that would quickly become tiresome, but this new model has such a cool exterior colour that we couldn’t help ourselves.

 

The colour you see in the image is one of two, Redline and Diamond Black. We have yet to see the black, but Redline is superb.

 

It’s reminiscent if a Mazda colour, rich, deep and with lots of character. Combined with the black trim and distinct lack of chrome, this is a superb looking truck!

 

The interior looks just as good, with black materials and contrasting stitching in orange.

 

Badges and trim elements mentioning Built to Serve are everywhere, but thankfully, removable in the interior.

 

The special edition is built on the Big Horn trim and will be available to order in the spring.

 

2022 Ram 1500

 

The Ram 1500 Built to Serve Edition is built on a standard Ram 1500 Big Horn. It’s a great looking truck that delivers the rugged dependability we look for along with the softer edges we like to see.

 

This guise does away with most of the chrome except a little inside. That’s a good thing as far as I’m concerned.

 

I think the lack of chrome makes the truck look modern and complements the red colour. Black on black in the Diamond Black colourway will probably look just as good!

 

Under the skin

 

The Ram 1500 Big Horn is available as a regular, crew and quad cab body styles with two load bed sizes.

 

Engines can include a 3.6-litre V6 mild hybrid with 305 hp, a 3.0-litre diesel V6 with 260 hp and a 5.7-litre Hemi V8 with 395 hp or the mild hybrid version with the same output.

 

All use an 8 speed automatic transmission to drive the rear or all wheels.

 

The Ram 1500 Built to Serve Edition comes with the 4×4 Off-Road Group too.

 

That means 20 inch all-terrain tires, locking rear axle, hill descent control, uprate shocks and skid plates underneath to protect essential components.

 

Of all the Built to Serve editions we have seen so far, I like this one the most. Sure, we could do with being able to remove some of the many Stars and Stripes, but otherwise, the colour, the black trim and those wheels combine to deliver a great looking truck!
