RAM Releases Another Color Special Edition: 2018 Hydro Blue Sport Special Edition 

RAM

RAM has taken to the San Antonio Auto Show to reveal 2017’s last special edition RAM 1500 truck. Dubbed the RAM Hydro Blue Sport Edition, the package joins the Sublime, Copper, and Ignition Orange packages already on offer for the 1500 series of trucks.

Changes to the special edition are limited purely to aesthetics. The exterior is given a lick of Hydro Blue color and receives a new body-color Sport grille with black inserts, black badging, and a new Sport performance hood.

The package is available on 1500 models, either in two-wheel drive or four-wheel drive. 4×4 models receive gloss black 20″ wheels, while two-wheel drive versions receive larger 22″ examples of the same wheels.

Pricing will begin at $47,455 and will begin arriving at dealerships this month. Production will be limited to 2000 units, but don’t worry if you miss this one: RAM will make more special ‘color’ editions.

The Grand Tour Loses ‘The American’ Test Driver aka NASCAR Driver Mike Skinner

The American

Mike Skinner, the NASCAR driver known as “The American” who acted as The Grand Tour’s on-hand expert driver, announced today via Twitter he will not be returning for season two.

It is unclear whether the decision was Amazon’s or Skinner’s, as he merely said “my character wasn’t developed as I was told.” Judging from the fans lukewarm reaction to his character, it is believable that either he would choose to not return or Amazon would ‘kill’ his character off.

The Grand Tour Season Two premieres on Amazon Prime December 8th, and you can watch the trailer right here:
