The range-topping Ram Heavy Duty Limited grade gets even more style from the newly unveiled Black Edition. As the name suggests this version gains a whole lot of shadowy trim. Prices for this darker truck start at $62,745, and sales begin in the third quarter of the year.
The package adds black accents to the grille, headlight and taillight bezels, door handles, mirror caps, and tow hooks. The badges have a matte-black finish. Single-rear-wheel trucks have 20-inch black wheels, and dual-rear-wheel rigs have 17-inch wheels in the dark color.
