Ram unveiled a new 1500 Limited Black Edition and Heavy Duty Big Horn and Laramie Night Editions which offer a wider selection of exterior appointments and content for greater personalization.
Ram 1500, the reigning Texas Auto Writers Association’s Truck of Texas, has been designed to offer more comfort, technology and refinement in the 1500 Limited Black Edition.
“Along with increasing capability, technology and efficiency, Ram is always looking for ways to create more comfort and refinement for our customers. The new Limited Black Edition is another example of how we deliver the most luxurious pickups in the industry,” said Reid Bigland, Head of Ram Brand. “Additionally, the new Heavy Duty Big Horn and Laramie Night Editions now offer an even wider selection of personalized content.”
The 2020 Ram 1500 Limited Black Edition stands out, courtesy of the following black accents: grille with R-A-M letters, badging, tow hooks, exhaust, premium LED headlamps, grille surround, bumpers, door handles and side-view mirrors.
Other standard features on the Limited Black Edition include 22-inch black wheels, tonneau cover and sport performance hood. The Ram 1500 Limited Black is available in both 4×2 and 4×4 configurations and with the 3.0-liter V6 EcoDiesel, 5.7-liter HEMI V8 and 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine with eTorque. The Ram 1500 Limited Black Edition has a manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) of $53,690.
The Ram Heavy Duty Night Editions, available on Big Horn and Laramie models, also join the lineup for 2020 and include a monochromatic design enhanced by a black grille with body-colored surround, black badging and black 20-inch wheels.
For the first time, Ram Heavy Duty trucks equipped with dual rear wheels now get 17-inch black wheels with machined pockets. The headlamps and taillights feature dark bezels. The Ram Heavy Duty Night Edition is available on Ram 2500 and 3500 4×2 and 4×4 Crew Cabs and Mega Cabs with a choice of 6.4-liter HEMI V8 or 6.7-liter Cummins I-6 featuring Ram’s highest available torque at 1,000 lb.-ft.

A long list of options and upgrades are available on Ram trucks, including the lighted and lockable RamBox cargo management system with adjustable tie-down cleats and bed divider, and the innovative Multifunction Tailgate.
Ram 1500 features a link-coil suspension designed for improved ride and handling, and is also available with an exclusive four-corner air suspension system with five different ride heights (off-road 1, off-road 2, normal, aero and entry/exit).
The Ram 2500 link-coil suspension can be enhanced with the addition of an optional rear air suspension system with two driver-selectable ride heights and load-leveling feature. Ram 3500 also offers the industry’s only supplemental rear air bag system with Hotchkiss leaf springs.
