Ram 1500 Night with Mopar accessories.

Accurate numbers haven’t rolled in yet, but we believe that this is the one millionth Ram 1500 variant offered in the past five years.

Okay, that’s far from the truth, but it seems like the folks at Fiat Chrysler Automobiles announce new pickup packages each time the tide goes out. The latest, announced today, is the Night package, available on 2017 Ram 1500 models.  

Like other recent packages, this package is inspired by another package — the 2013 Ram 1500 Black Express package. (It also borrows from the existing Sport package.)

There’s no cheap matte wrap here, but neither are there any shiny bits. Ram blacks out almost all chrome with this package — grille, bumpers, wheels, badges, lettering — but leaves the tailpipes gleaming for practical reasons. Rear side windows receive a strong tint, but it’s up to the owner to test local laws with the front glass.

Anything not blacked out is body colored, with five paint choices to choose from (black being an obvious choice here). There’s no matte option. The wheels are 20-inch gloss black aluminum jobs, and don’t expect white-letter tires.

Optional accessories include blacked out running boards and sport hood, a Mopar cat-back exhaust and cold-air intake, and the RamBox cargo system. Adjustable air suspension is also offered, because you want that thing low when you’re rolling around town.

Ram will offer the package on all body styles and bed lengths, two- or four-wheel-drive, with either the 3.6-liter V6 or 5.7-liter V8. Pricing hasn’t been announced, but the Ram 1500 Night goes into production in the early fourth quarter.
