Ram is bringing new, special-edition Night packages for Ram 2500 and 3500 HD pickups to the 2017 Chicago Auto Show.
 
The new Night editions further expand the Ram factory-custom truck family from the 1/2-ton Ram 1500 announced in September 2016 to the brand’s ¾-quarter and 1-ton models.
 
Based on the monochromatic Sport appearance package, Night adds blacked-out features, including wheels, grille surround, and badging.
 
Production of the 2017 Ram HD Night models began early February 2017. Ram Heavy Duty Night pricing starts at $45,520, plus $1,320 destination.

2017 Ram 2500 and 3500 Heavy Duty Night Package

Ram 2500 and 3500 Heavy Duty Night packages start with monochromatic Sport appearance package components and features, adding body-color wheel flares. 
 
Black 2500/3500 and powertrain-specific badging, black lighting bezels and black grill surround define the Night look. Also included are black-bezel headlamps, body-color-painted steel front and rear bumpers, 20 x 8-inch black-painted aluminum wheels and LT285/60R20E outlined-white letter on/off road tires. Black rectangular running boards also are available.
 
The Night package includes high-back heated cloth vinyl bucket seats with 10-way power adjustment, power-adjustable pedals and automatic temperature control with dual-zone climate control (six-passenger bench or five-passenger buckets with center console).
 
The new Ram Heavy Duty Night package also adds:

  • Black grille surround with black billet inserts.
  • Bold “RAM” tailgate with blacked-out lettering from Ram Power Wagon.
  • Black Ram’s head grille badge.
  • Flat black Ram 2500 or 3500 Heavy Duty door badge.
  • Flat black 4x4 tailgate badge (if applicable).
  • Flat black powertrain door badging.

The Night package is available on Ram 2500 and 3500 (single rear-wheel models only) in Crew Cab configurations, 4x2 or 4x4, and any available powertrain combination (5.7L HEMI V-8, 6.4L HEMI V-8, or 6.7L Cummins I-6).
 
Ram 2500 and 3500 HD Night models are available in Bright Silver Metallic, Bright White, Brilliant Black Crystal, Delmonico Red Pearl, and Granite Crystal Metallic.

Ram 2500/3500 Heavy Duty

Ram Heavy Duty pickups are designed to work hard and deliver an amazing 31,210 pounds of towing capability. The 6.7L Cummins High-Output Turbo Diesel produces 385 hp and 900 lb.-ft. of torque. The Ram 2500 holds the ¾-ton gas-powered towing title with 16,320 pounds of capacity.
 
Ram Heavy Duty pickups also offer the segment’s highest snow plow ratings, most interior space (Mega Cab) and the highest level of off-road capability (Power Wagon).

Ram also features the largest displacement V-8 in the segment. The 6.4L HEMI opens the door to additional customers who are looking for a large gasoline powertrain at a great value. The 6.4L HEMI V-8 delivers 410 hp and 429 lb.-ft. of torque, and features VVT with Fuel Saver cylinder deactivation.  

Ram Heavy Duty pickups are loaded with innovations that deliver the segment’s best ride and handling, including rear link-coil rear suspension for Ram 2500, exclusive auto-level rear air suspension for Ram 2500, and exclusive factory-supplemental air suspension system for Ram 3500.
