If you want a good looking truck, but you think all that chrome can get a bit gaudy, then you need look no further than the 2020 Ram Heavy Duty Black Edition. Yes, you can get the Ram Heavy Duty with all the chrome and bling, but the Black Edition is exactly what the name suggests—a completely blacked out version of the award-winning truck.
The Black Edition is available in either the Ram 2500 or 3500 Limited models. The Black Edition uses the limited grille with RAM lettering done completely in black. The 20-inch aluminium wheels on the 2500 are black, with the 3500 Limited models receiving 17-inch wheels that are painted black and have matching machined eyelets with a dual wheel option being made available. All the exterior accents are completely blacked out as well, including the Ram logo, which is done in matte black on the tailgate. Even the tow hooks are black. And that treatment continues inside as well. The interior is done completely in black to match the exterior perfectly. You’ll also no doubt notice the 12-inch touchscreen that takes care of the infotainment for the truck.
Under the hood, you have a couple of options. You can go for the 6.4L HEMI V8 or the 6.7L Cummins Turbo Diesel, which offers 1,000 lb-ft of torque. For the 2020 version, the Heavy Duty offers a whopping tow capacity of 35,100 pounds and a payload capacity of 7,680 pounds.
If you’re tempted by this black beauty, but you’re worried about the price, there’s no need for concern. The Black Edition is priced at just USD$1,095 above the starting price of the Limited. You can pick up the Black Edition for USD$64,440. That’s an extra well worth every cent when you’re looking for an eye-catching truck that will be the envy of the neighbourhood.
