2021 Ram 1500 And Heavy Duty Limited Get Night Edition Variants
The 2021 Ram 1500 Limited is one of the most luxurious trucks – perhaps even one of the most luxurious vehicles, period – on the market. But its chrome appearance isn’t to everyone’s liking, so the truck maker will now offer a limited night edition on the 1500 and Heavy Duty. It joins the Night edition available on other versions, bringing both style and substance to the pickup.
The 2021 Ram 1500 Limited Night Edition starts at $ 60,045 plus destination, an increase of $ 3,795 over the regular 2021 Limited. The Heavy Duty Night Edition will retail for $ 62,930, compared to $ 61,650 for a 2500 Limited from the previous model year (2021 prices for the 2500 and 3500 are not yet known). The Ram 1500’s price premium is actually a bit of a savings compared to the 2020 model’s black-look package, which costs $ 3,995.
That extra piece gets the iconic grille from the hardened black trim level, along with dark bezels in the headlights and taillights, black mirror caps, and body-color bumpers. The 1500’s 20- or 22-inch wheels are painted black; ditto the 20 inches of Heavy Duty (17 for Ram 3500 with two rear wheels).
In addition to cosmetic upgrades, the Night Edition also gets a standard Harman Kardon premium audio system, tri-fold tonneau cover, and tow hooks. The 1500 Night has a unique hood, like the one found on the Ram 1500 Sport.
The Night Edition will be available on the two- or four-wheel-drive 1500, available only on the crew cab (like the Limited). The Heavy Duty Night Edition will be available with the Crew Cab or the spacious Mega Cab, with or without dual rear wheels on the 3500 Heavy Duty. The dark trim package is available in the respective powertrains of each model line, including the efficient Ram 1500 EcoDiesel or the mighty 2500/3500 Cummins.
The Night Edition is in addition to other special factory custom packages like Chevrolet’s Midnight and Toyota’s Nightshade. The Ram 1500 Limited Night Edition and Heavy Duty Limited Night Edition will be available at the end of the month.
