Revised posting! Apex EMS recently placed a new ambulance in service and sporting new graphics. The truck is a 2015 Chevrolet 4500 diesel with a custom body built by American Emergency Vehicles (AEV). The body was designed with extensive planning for safety and function. The paramedic in the patient compartment can reach most controls as well as patient while remaining seated and belted. Here are some pictures they've shared, click to enlarge:
 

 
The new graphics are derived from a new patch design created by Director and Chief Randall Heath. He created the patch in 2013 with the red, while, and blue color scheme. The final design for the ambulance resulted after about twenty-five edits. It combines visibility and a fresh look and also aligns with the new logo.
 

 
The new ambulance is unit 40-401 and is presently assigned as EMS 41. It joins a fleet that consists of:

The new design replaces the traditional orange over white colors used by Apex EMS. Here's one of the Chevy/Wheeled Coach ambulances on scene at a structure fire in town last month:
 





The orange and white ambulance pictured (#4) is actually a former Six Forks EMS ambulance box that was purchased used and later remounted. I think that this one was the only one that was actually lettered for ‘Apex Fire-EMS’. After the FD and EMS separated, the word ‘fire’ was removed. There was also a patch decal on each door that included the Star of Life as a part of the design.
