Ram builds lots of special editions and limited-run option packages for its trucks. Recently, the company showed off the Ram 1500 Limited 10th Anniversary Edition with a more luxurious interior. There was also the Mopar Special Edition that got parts from Stellantis' aftermarket division. The brand offered a wide variety of Built to Serve editions with special colors in honor of the branches of the US military.
Ram truck sales are currently very strong. In the second quarter, the company delivered 164,232 of its pickups (the brand doesn't break out the 1500 from other models). This was 39.8 percent more than the 117,448 units in that period in 2020. For the year so far, the brand has delivered 313,068 trucks, versus 246,253 at this time in 2020, which was a 27 percent increase.
