If you purchase a new Ram 1500, there are many features and packages a buyer can add depending on their style and entertainment wants and needs. Some popular features and packages available with a new Ram purchase include UConnect upgrades, the Popular Entertainment group, Luxury group, and Black Appearance package. Each on of these packages are only available on select trims.

Black Appearance Package

The Black Appearance group package, which is optional on the 1500 Express trim, includes lots of features that add darker and a more aggressive look to a new Ram truck. The package includes all black accessories.

UConnect Upgrades and Systems

UConnect is the entertainment system available on vehicles made by the various brands owned by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. The Ram 1500 Tradesman, the base 1500 trim, comes standard with an FM/Am radio, however buyers can upgrade to a 5.0 Uconnect system. The 5.0 Uconnect system includes a 5.0-inch screen with SiriusXM capability, and FM/AM radio. This system comes standard on the 1500 SLT.

There is also an upgraded 8.4 Uconnect system available on other 1500 trims.

The UConnect 8.4 system comes optional on the SLT trim, and is standard on both the Lone Star and Big Horn trims.

Finally, the UConnect Access is the highest level of the system. Think of this system as the UConnect fully loaded.
