Ah, the 2019 Ram 1500. It’s had a lot of good news as of late, named in WardsAuto Best Interiors List, talked up by U.S. News in their “Most High-Tech Features for the Money” list, and was even named a family vehicle during the GAAMA Family Car Challenge. With the Ram 1500 Classic coming out next to the 2019 Ram 1500, let’s not also forget the special editions that came out for the 2018 and 2019 model year.

America’s farmers work hard, and Ram decided to show a little love by making a pickup truck just for them. The Ram Harvest Edition is designed with farm-life essentials, such as black tubular side steps, a durable spray-in bedliner, fold-out bumper step, mud flaps, and rubber floor mats. With nine inches of ground clearance and standard on/off-road tires on all Ram 1500 Harvest Edition models, these capabilities are only matched by the tech, complete with Uconnect 4C comes with navigation, 4G WiFi, Apple CarPlay, and Google Android Auto, along with available up-to-the minute weather maps and forecasts customizable to any location. The Harvest Edition was made available across the Ram 1500, 2500, and 3500 lineups, in all four-door Quad, Crew, and Mega Cab configurations, all box lengths, and all powertrains, including the 5.7-liter Hemi V8, 6.4-liter Hemi V8, and 6.7-liter Cummins Turbo Diesel.

A limited edition spotted at the 2017 Chicago Auto Show is the 2018 Ram 1500 Copper Sport. Built around the Ram 1500 Sport model, this edition features a new copper body paint job, along with some new graphics; the Ram’s head grille badge, tailgate badge, and side badges are all blacked-out. The interior is also all black, with copper-colored stitching, and features an upgraded Alpine nine-speaker sound system.
Starting MSRP of $46,950 (plus destination fee).
The last release for the 2018 model year was more like an appearance package for the Ram 1500 alone. Also based on the sport trim of the Ram 1500, being a special edition, the Hydro Blue Sport comes with a mix of low-tier and high-tier features. A monochrome exterior features a blue-painted grille and front and rear bumpers, and for some nice contrast, the hood, grille inserts, and badging are black, along with dark-tinted headlight bezels and taillights to complete the package. This color scheme continues throughout the cabin with blue stitched accents on the seats, door panels, steering wheel, and instrument panel. Able to be configured with a crew-cab, short-box truck with rear- or four-wheel drive, and powered by a 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine, there’s just one question about the Hydro Blue Sport. Would you like 20-inch wheels on a 4×4 drivetrain, or 22-inch wheels on a 4×2?
Starting MSRP of $46,060 (plus destination fee).
2019 Ram 1500 Kentucky Derby Edition
Set for the 2019 model year, the Ram 1500 Kentucky Derby Edition came out to commemorate the 144th running of the Kentucky Derby and nine years of Ram trucks being the “Official Truck” of Churchill Downs and the Kentucky Derby and exclusive automotive partner.
