Ram Truck will start offering a special Ram 1500 Crew Cab 4×4 Special Service package for law enforcement and other emergency agencies through Chrysler Fleet sales, starting this month. The vehicle is designed with specific heavy-duty features and options for extra durability, reliability and overall value.
The truck will include a heavy-duty 220-amp alternator, capable of providing power for multiple light bars, radar and camera equipment, and high-powered sirens computer gear. The Special Service package also includes a power distribution center with two separate 100-amp main fuse lines, a unique instrument panel, reinforced doors, and 10-way power front seats to accommodate multiple-sized officers.
A special headliner with auxiliary dome lamps sit over stain-repellent cloth bucket seats in the first row, with a vinyl bench seat in back. The center console is removed to add space for extra equipment and the shifter is located on the steering column. The truck is also available with the RamBox option for those agencies that might need the extra bed storage for safety gear or firearms. The truck will have 3.92:1 gears and the 5.7L Hemi.
No pricing or volume projections have been given out at this time but Ram is saying they are quite hopeful this vehicle will fill a niche for many urban and suburban municipalities that have postponed their support vehicle purchases.
