It looks properly menacing
The Ram 3500 is a seriously capable truck, and even though the Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD and Ford F-350 Super Duty are similarly impressive, the Ram holds its own against them. Still, Ram likes bringing out special editions to bolster sales, and one of the most hotly anticipated is the 2021 TRX. In the meantime, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has released the Heavy Duty Limited Black Edition. If that name sounds familiar, it's because something similar was done in the past. As the name suggests, the special addition to the lineup comes with a smattering of black accents that add a truly evil appearance to the truck.
Among these changes are black exterior highlights on the grille's lettering, the door handles, the tow mirrors and hooks, and the headlight and taillight bezels. Also included are matte black badges and black aluminum wheels. The upgrade is only available on the Limited trim - the most luxurious in the range. That makes sense, since you shouldn't really care about appearance packages on work vehicles.
Single rear-wheel models feature 20-inch alloys while dual rear-wheel variants will boast 17-inch wheels with machined holes. The Black edition is available for 4x2 and 4x4 variants and you have a choice of two engines as well: the 6.4-liter HEMI V8 and two 6.7-liter Cummins turbodiesel options.
As attractive as the Limited Black Edition may be, it's not exactly cheap. Pricing starts at $62,745, but you'll be pleased to know that this is a saving of $255 over the regular Limited trim. Considering how impressive the 3500 already is, that sounds like a good deal for a truck that can tow up to 35,100 pounds and haul 7,680 pounds. Still, for those who are eagerly awaiting Ram's answer to the F-150 Raptor, this special edition of a bigger and more capable truck will likely be overlooked. In any case, this new offering highlights that black makes every kind of vehicle look absolutely badass.
