It seems like the 2017 Ram 1500 Lone Star Silver Edition was a great hit at the State Fair of Texas. People who came stole the badge off of these trucks.
The badge is located in a lower corner of the truck’s chrome mesh grille. It allows everyone know that this isn’t like the other Ram models. The other giveaways are Texas-sized contents of polished metal and chrome. Sadly for Ram exponents at the fair, those badges strolled away as milled aluminum bling. Possibly bound for a hat, vest or belt.
Nick Cappa, declared the badges “pilfered” on Friday
Nick Cappa, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles’ Ram product representative, declared the badges “pilfered” on Friday.
“So apparently folks really like the new badge on the grille of our new Ram 1500 Lone Star Silver,” Cappa wrote on Facebook.
It’s too late to accomplish stop-and-frisk at the fair’s exits with FCA left with no choice. But to grasp into the patriotic parts bucket to make the two trucks whole again.
Ram 1500 Lone Stars are the state’s best-selling truck, so the stealing isn’t something surprising. The new Silver Edition, which accumulates on the outside chrome, also adds 20-inch wheels, front tow hooks, and interior lining to the up-level model. The $900 package bumps the 2017 Ram 1500 Lone Star’s price to $41,215, including a delivery charge.
The 2017 Limited and Laramie Longhorn models will also be changed, with enchansed content and, like the Lone Star Silver Edition, a grille with more glitter. A blacked-out Night package also bends for 2017.
The State Fair of Texas is the go-to event for truck producers with offering new products hien under their stetsons. Ram will bring some extra badges to feed the fairgoers’ acquisitive desires, maybe 2017.
