It offers power-operated running boards so that you never have trouble getting in and out of the vehicle in your Derby Day best. All Kentucky Derby Editions also come standard with a trailer hitch, usually an add-on for most 1500 trim levels.

The Kentucky Derby Edition also has special exterior colors to choose from, Maximum Steel Metallic, Granite Crystal Metallic, Diamond Black Crystal Pearl Coat, Delmonico Red Pearl Coat, Ivory Tri-Coat, or Patriot Blue Pearl Coat. Pair your color of choice with the available 22-inch painted and polished aluminum wheels that bring the vehicle to life even more.

Interior Style

Inside the Kentucky Derby Edition, you’ll really notice a difference. It is available with a crew cabin and a 67-inch bed, which means you’ll have plenty of room to fit five adult passengers, as well as plenty of equipment and luggage for everyone who’s coming along.

It comes standard with premium full-leather heated and ventilated seats in the front and heated back seats as well. Opt for the available reclining and ventilated back seats to give your passengers even more comfort on long drives. You can also opt for genuine wood and metal trim throughout the interior for a unique style.

Technology Add-Ons

The Ram 1500 Kentucky Derby Edition is based on the 1500’s top Limited trim. That means it’s packed with all the luxury technology. It gets an impressive 12-inch vertical touchscreen, which is the largest navigation touch screen in its class. It comes standard with SiriusXM 360L, which offers over 200 channels, a live sports category so you can keep up with every event while you’re on the road, and voice search so you don’t ever have to take your hands off the wheel while you’re driving.

In order to listen to all those radio stations, you’ll need a good sound system. Luckily, Ram has you covered on that front, too. The Kentucky Derby Edition offers you the most powerful audio system in its class: the 900-watt Harman Kardon Premium Audio System. It has a whopping 19 speakers to give you a true surround-sound experience.
