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.

    Ram's desperation is showing with all these special editions/trim packages. The new truck isn't doing that well as they now have extended the old truck for a 3rd year and they still haven't done anything significant with their 3/4 and 1 ton trucks.

    As someone who is a chrome hater, I like the look, but not the price. It should be available across all the trim levels.

  • El scotto Wranglers are like good work boots, you can't make them any better. Rugged four wheel drive vehicles which ironically make great urban vehicles. Wagoneers were like handbags desired by affluent women. They've gone out of vogue. I can a Belgian company selling Jeep and Ram Trucks to a Chinese company.
  • El scotto So now would be a good time to buy an EV as a commuter car?
  • ToolGuy $1 billion / 333.3 million = $3 per U.S. person ¶ And what do I get for my 3 bucks -- cleaner air and lower fuel prices? I might be ok with this 🙂🙂
  • VoGhost Matt, I'm curious why you write that inventory levels are low at 74 days. Typically, 60 days is the benchmark for normal inventory.
