Ram Trucks Launched Heavy Duty Night Models

Ram Trucks revealed both of the Heavy Duty models for the first time at the 2017 Chicago Auto Show. Based on the Sport appearance package, the Night adds blacked-out features, including wheels, grille surround and badging, to deliver an eye-catching twist on the performance-enthusiast package.

If you’re looking for a way to stand out from the crowd – these Heavy Duty Night models will do just that.

The new Ram Heavy Duty Night package adds:

Black grille surround with black billet inserts
Bold “RAM” tailgate with blackened-out lettering from Ram Power Wagon®
Black Ram’s head grille badge
Flat black Ram 2500 or 3500 Heavy Duty door badge
Flat black 4×4 tailgate badge (if applicable)
Flat black powertrain door badging

The Night package is available on Ram 2500 and 3500 (single-rear-wheel models only) in Crew Cab configurations, 4×2 or 4×4, and any available powertrain combination (5.7L HEMI® V8, 6.4L HEMI V8 or 6.7L Cummins® I-6).

Ram 2500 and 3500 HD Night models are available in Bright Silver Metallic, Bright White, Brilliant Black Crystal, Delmonico Red Pearl and Granite Crystal Metallic.

Production of the 2017 Ram HD Night models began early February 2017. Ram Heavy Duty Night pricing starts at $45,520 MSRP, plus $1,320 destination.

Ram’s Black Sport / Black Ram 1500 Express

Ram Man tipped us off to the 2015 Black Ram 1500 Express (in Canada, Ram 1500 Black Sport), a pickup truck with blackened headlights, badging, wheels, mirror cases, and paint. Builds on the Ram 1500 Sport package, which includes a Hemi V8 and eight-speed automatic, it also has a “sport performance” hood, unique 20-inch wheels, dual-zone automatic temperature control (except regular cab), and nine amplified speakers.

The Ram 1500 Black Sport package (26L) is only available in “Brilliant Black Crystal Pearl” but comes in regular, quad, and crew cab formats. The normal price for Ram 1500 Sport is $36,150 (regular cab, short bed, rear wheel drive). Ram Man wrote that the package price was C$1,795 in Canada, which equates to around US$1,415 given an unusually strong U.S. dollar; chances are it will run at least $1,495 in the US to account for short-term currency changes.

The truck is now shown in preproduction form on Ram’s web site, with the slogan, “black on black on black.” The dual exhaust tips are chrome, but little else deviates from the black theme.

Back in Black: Ram Extends Black Package to HD Pickups

Throw the devil horns skyward, because Ram is letting Heavy Duty 2500 and 3500 models get in on the factory-prepped blacked-out look for 2014. Available as the Black Express on Ram 1500 trucks since mid-year 2013, the package proved so successful Ram figured it would extend the treatment in even a more imposing form to its heavy-haulers. Officially called the Ram Black appearance group, it’s making its debut at the Atlanta auto show this week.

The descent into darkness starts with a black truck outfitted with body-color front and rear bumpers, adds a set of 20-inch black aluminum wheels, and a black grille surround with black horizontal inserts specific to the two available trims—Big Horn/Lone Star or Laramie—and body-color badges on the grille and tailgate. All traces of body-side badging have been binned in the name of blackness, with the exception of those ordered with a Cummins diesel. On those trucks the diesel designation on the front fender remains, because diesel brings the bad on it’s own.

Lighting gets a similar treatment, halogen projector headlamps with black bezels, amber LEDs handle turn-signal and side-marker duties. The taillamps also include black finishes, and are comprised of LEDs. Included as part of the Black package are the decidedly un-goth-but-quite-handy backup camera and parking sensors. A pair of integral front bumper-mounted fog lamps illuminate the way when the night turns, well, dark. As sage philosopher/spiritualist/rocker Nigel Tufnel once said, “It’s like, how much more black could this be? And the answer is none. None more black.”

Ram tells us the 2014 Ram Heavy Duty Black package is available on Ram 2500 and 3500 single rear-wheel trucks, in Crew Cab and Mega Cab models, with the choice of two- or four-wheel-drive. Pricing for the Black package HD trucks starts at $43,335, and is available for ordering now.
