Starting this month, Ram Truck will be offering a new Ram 1500 Crew Cab 4x4 Special Service package. The newest Ram model features a selection of severe-duty-adapted equipment available on the 2012 Ram 1500 and several unique features to put the bad guy in his place. And you too may be able to get your hands on a cop truck, without stealing it!
New Ram 1500 Crew Cab 4x4 Special Service package offers special equipment to support police and other emergency services
Additional door support allows for installation of ballistic material inside front doors
Added Power Distribution Center (PDC) and 220-amp alternator supports high-amp drawing systems and accessories
Package includes 5.7-liter HEMI® V-8 with 390 horsepower/407 lb.-ft. torque, 3.92 axle ratio and four-wheel-drive
5 year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty
It also includes a unique instrument panel that houses a certified speedometer with engine hour and idle hour meter and a 110-volt inverter. The truck is available with a full-face steering wheel, four key fobs and ten-way power front seats which quickly accommodate multiple drivers.
A special headliner with auxiliary dome lamp sits over stain-repellent cloth bucket seats in the first row and a vinyl bench in the second row. The center console is removed to add space for extra equipment and the shifter is located on the steering column.
For now the special package is reserved for fleet sales. But if you plan to purchase 10 or more trucks you can get the special cop outfitting. And we suspect if you a have a buddy in the Ram fleet department you may be able to land just one...if you're sneaky.
