Ram and Chris Stapleton team up for one-of-a-kind “Traveller” truck

Based on the 1979 Dodge Ram Palomino


Ram Trucks and Grammy-winning artist Chris Stapleton have teamed up for a one-of-a-kind Ram “Traveller” truck. Stapleton’s Ram is built on a 2500 Heavy Duty platform and features numerous custom touches that pay homage to one of his favorite trucks, the 1979 Dodge Ram Palomino.

“Our relationship with Chris Stapleton is special because he is not just a partner, we consider him to be a friend. He represents our shared values of hard-work, determination, and perseverance,” says Ram brand CEO, Mike Koval Jr. “Our journey with Chris throughout his career is something we are extremely proud of and to see this Ram Truck collaboration come to fruition is an endeavor we will cherish for a long time.”

The Traveller’s exterior is finished in a Palomino-inspired motif of Linen Cream, Radar Red, Bison Brown and Cashmere. The colors were updated to complement modern finishes, and the Palomino’s striped graphics are revised for the 2500 Heavy Duty’s body. Traveller badging has been modified to blend the past and the present. A multi-faceted, three-dimensional Ram hood ornament was added to maintain the vintage style. It rides on retro-style Turbo Fin 18-inch wheels with bright chrome center caps.

The Ram Traveller’s interior has a custom, monochromatic Bison Brown theme throughout, with buffalo plaid flannel material integrated into the headrests as a tribute to the jacket Stapleton wore on the cover of his debut album. It features Walnut Burl wood trim throughout the cabin, with speaker grilles and cloth-wrapped seats inspired by guitar amps. Wrapping up the custom interior is a Chris Stapleton signature inserted into the wood of the instrument panel.
