AUBURN HILLS, Michigan — The new 2016 Ram 1500 Stinger Yellow Sport limited-edition pickup truck will arrive at Ram dealerships this May with a starting price of $44,340, including a $1,195 destination charge.

Bright yellow paint gives the special Ram 1500 a custom look and is patterned after the 2016 Ram 1500 Yellow Rose of Texas edition, which is only available in Texas.

The Stinger Yellow Sport model has a limited production of 2,250 trucks, Fiat-Chrysler said on Monday.

“The Ram 1500 Sport offers unique features for customers who enjoy aggressive styling and great performance,” said Mike Manley, head of Ram Truck brand, in a statement.

Standard features on the Stinger Yellow Sport include a 395-horsepower Hemi V8 engine, eight-speed TorqueFlite transmission, dual chrome-tipped exhaust, vented sport hood and 22-inch wheels on 4×2 models and 20-inch wheels on 4×4 models.

The truck is available in Crew Cab 4×2 and 4×4 configurations.

Key Ram 1500 competitors include the Chevrolet Silverado, Ford F-150, Nissan Titan and Toyota Tundra.

Edmunds says: Truck buyers are demanding a custom look, and this latest offering from Ram should check the right box for those shoppers.
