Ram is celebrating its agricultural bonds with a new edition designed specifically for America’s farm families: The 2018 Ram Chassis Cab Harvest Edition.

An agricultural market-specific truck, it is visually distinguished by two limited-availability colors: Case IH Red and New Holland Blue (Brilliant Black and Bright White also available). 

In August 2017, Ram launched 1500, 2500, and 3500 pickup versions of the Harvest Edition. The Harvest Edition will be available across the Ram 3500 (SRW and DRW), 4500, and 5500 (DRW, 60-inch and 80-inch cab-to-axle lengths) Chassis Cab lineup, in all four-door Crew Cab and two-door Regular Cab configurations.

Optional powertrains include 4x4 versions of the 6.4L HEMI V-8 or 6.7L Cummins Turbo Diesel. Harvest Edition Chassis Cab trucks are loaded with functional features that are designed to work, including large front tow hooks, a transfer-case skid plate, side steps, fog lamps and a rear back-up camera. 

The Harvest Edition comes  with technology including an optional 8.4-inch Uconnect 4C touchscreen radio with navigation, 4G Wi-Fi capability, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. A large 7-inch reconfigurable cluster allows operators to monitor selected systems, such as filter life, engine hours and operating temperatures.

The interior also includes an auto-dimming rearview mirror, leather-wrapped steering wheel, steering-wheel audio controls, and power-sliding rear window (Crew Cab). The Harvest Edition features a premium exterior appearance packed with chrome highlights, including the grille, side-steps, door handles and mirrors. Polished aluminum wheels enhance all four corners (18-inch on 3500 models, 19.5-inch on 4500 and 5500 models). 

The Harvest package also includes body-color (or Bright Silver) wheel flares and upper fascia (3500). In addition to Case Red and New Holland Blue, Harvest Edition Ram trucks are also available in Bright White or Brilliant Black. 

Ram Harvest Edition Chassis Cab pricing (not including the $1,695 destination charge):

  • Ram 3500 MSRP starts at $43,990
  • Ram 4500 MSRP starts at $48,140
  • Ram 5500 MSRP starts at $49,240

Ram Harvest Edition trucks were unveiled today at Husker Harvest Days in Grand Island, Nebraska, and go on sale in the third quarter of 2018.
