As you might expect, this one is loaded with Mopar accessories.
The Ram 1500 is a great pickup. It's officially the safest pickup truck in America, and with there being a new, more fuel-efficient offering available, it's a very attractive proposition. But something that Stellantis has noticed is that people are big fans of special editions. The 'Built To Serve' range has proven popular, but now that the final installment of these has been released, it's time for Ram to release a new version. Meet the Mopar '21 Ram 1500 Special Edition. No, that's not a catchy name, but don't worry - what it lacks in nomenclature is overcompensated for in equipment.
Available exclusively for the 2021 Ram 1500 Big Horn and Lone Star Crew Cab 4x4 variants, the Mopar Special Edition comes loaded with Mopar accessories and will be limited to 250 examples. The majority are for the US market, with 40 allocated for Canada. Four colors are available: Billet Silver, Bright White, Flame Red, and Hydro Blue. 20-inch wheels finished in black are wrapped in 275/55 all-season rubber, while black grille badges and mirrors offset the body-color door handles, bumpers, and fender flares. You also get a Mopar bed step, black decals, black exhaust tips, a special plaque with the build-sequence number, and a Mopar '21 owner kit with a custom box, a personalized metal certificate of authenticity, and a special digital rendering of the truck.
As for those aforementioned accessories, you get a Mopar black off-road style set of running boards, a spray-in bedliner, adjustable tie-downs, tow hooks, dual-trailer camera prep, and all-weather floor mats on the inside. A body-color one-piece tonneau cover is thrown in too, but performance remains unchanged. You still get a 5.7-liter HEMI V8 generating 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque. The eight-speed TorqueFlite automatic transmission is also retained. So what does all this cost? Not too much, thankfully. The package only adds $8,500 to the base cost of those Big Horn/Lone Star models, but is it really worth it for what is basically just an appearance package?
