RAM REDBACK 2500 previewed before October launch.

RAM recently previewed its REDBACK 2500 at the 2017 National 4x4 Outdoors Show, Fishing & Boating Expo, prior to its October launch.

The limited edition RAM pick-up receives the ‘standard’ aesthetic updates, with no changes to drivetrain or performance.

The REDBACK is distinguishable from its RAM stablemates thanks to a new black PowerWagon grille that replaces the traditional RAM chrome grille, while the RAM nomenclature is both centralised across the front grille and plastered across the tailgate in bold font (for the first time in Australia).

RAM REDBACK 2500 rearAdditional features include bright red tow hooks, bonnet and side decals, black side steps and REDBACK badging.

The REDBACK is available in flame red (of course), as well as black.

The unchanged 6.7-litre Cummins turbo-diesel engine, familiar to RAM Trucks, gives the REDBACK plenty of bite. It produces 276kW and a massive 1084Nm, which equates to a theoretical towing capacity of 6942kg.

 “Whether its towing a boat, taking a caravan out into the outback loaded with camping gear, packed with all the gear for just about any type of fishing activity, or simply looking great on the road, the RAM 2500 and 3500, along with the new RAM REDBACK 2500 limited edition truck, are ready to get you there,” Alex Stewart, General Manager of RAM in Australia, said.

Pricing and further details will be announced when the REDBACK 2500 goes on sale in October.
