A Darker Shade of Night: Ram Once Again Expands Trim Choice
If Fiat Chrysler handed a dime to auto scribes every time it introduced a new trim or special edition Ram, there’d be quite a few additional millionaires roaming the streets.
Today they’d be 10 cents richer.
Yes, there’s more choice to be had in the Ram lineup for 2021, both in the light- and heavy-duty camps. Because Night editions already exist in the Ram lineup, the truck maker was forced to think long and hard for this one.
Introducing the Limited Night:
Yes, this appearance treatment applies only to top-flight Ram Limiteds in 1500, 2500, and 3500 guise. Any exterior trim that can carry a black finish does; the list includes the grille, grille surround, wheels, exhaust tips, and mirror caps, with headlamps and taillamps featuring shaded bezels. The bumpers are body-colored, which can of course be black.
Standard on the 1500 Limited Night is 20-inch wheels, a sport hood, three-piece folding tonneau cover, and 19-speaker Harman/Kardon audio system. Twenty-two-inch hoops are optional, but not recommended for people living in areas of poor road infrastructure. Otherwise, watch those loose fillings. On heavy duty models, blacked-out rims are 20-inchers on single-rear-wheel models and 17-inchers on dual-rear-wheel rigs.
Available on rear- or four-wheel drive Crew and Mega Cabs with the pricey powertrain boxes checked, the 1500 Limited Night carries a sticker of $61,740 after destination, with HD variants starting at $64,625. Boosting margins by diversifying high-end offerings continues to be a popular pastime at America’s truck makers.
The Ram Limited Nights show up late this month.
