AUBURN HILLS, Mich., Jan. 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- After a brief, one-year hiatus, the Ram 1500 Mossy Oak® Edition is returning to the truck brand's model lineup.
Updated for 2014, the Mossy Oak Edition will now be available for the first time with the RamBox Cargo management System, in both 6-ft.-4-in. and 5-ft.-7-in. bed lengths.
Originally introduced to the Ram Truck family in 2011, the Mossy Oak Edition is designed for enthusiasts who are passionate about the great outdoors.
The 2014 Ram 1500 Mossy Oak® Edition will further extend the multi-tiered relationship between the Ram Truck brand and America's top camouflage brand.
"Ram Truck is focused on the needs and wants of truck buyers," said Reid Bigland, President and CEO, Ram Truck Brand – Chrysler Group LLC. "Our Ram Truck owners are passionate about hunting and fishing. The Ram Mossy Oak Edition gives hunting enthusiasts a way to proudly proclaim their love for the outdoors."

"The Ram Truck brand has been a great partner to Mossy Oak," said Ronnie "Cuz" Strickland, EVP of Mossy Oak. "The people there love trucks, but they're also into hunting and fishing and understand that their customers are, too. To have Ram take that relationship to the next level by offering a special Mossy Oak Edition speaks volumes about their commitment to hunters and Outdoorsmen and women, and we are extremely proud to partner with them."
