Ram Brand announced today (April 3), that they will be immediately offering a ‘Black Package’ trim for their line of Ram Heavy Duty (2500 and 3500) trucks.
For 2014, Ram already offers a ‘Black Express Package’ trim for their Ram 1500 light duty pickup trucks. Due to a very strong customer response to that package and the increasing interest in the all-new Ram Heavy Duty truck line – including requests for this custom appearance package – Ram revealed the new Ram Heavy Duty Black Package at the Atlanta International Auto Show today.
The 2014 Ram Heavy Duty Black Package, takes an already imposing looking Ram 2500 or 3500 truck and creates an all-black exterior look that includes 20-inch black aluminum wheels, fog lamps, black grille surround with black horizontal inserts that designate the two trim levels.
Body-color front and rear bumpers and head badges on the grille and tailgate complete the dark - almost menacing - look.
The only exception to the all-black look, without even any badging, is the Cummins Diesel badging - if the customer orders their Black Package Ram Heavy Duty with the Cummins engine.
Underneath, the 2014 Ram Heavy Duty truck is the complete package of performance and capability that is the hallmark of the all-new Ram Heavy Duty line. These include things such as best-in-class power in both gas and diesel and a long list of features unique to this segment such as: Cargo-view Camera, RamBox, manual transmission for diesel and a first-in-class link coil rear suspension (2500) with a new front suspension and an air suspension option (both 2500 and 3500).
The 2014 Ram Heavy Duty Black package also features premium bi-functional halogen projector headlamps with black bezels, 15 amber LEDs for park/turn/position lamp and three amber LEDs for the side markers. Taillamps include black finishes and are comprised of 15 red LEDs with three red LEDs for the side markers.
The Black Package also adds the Ram Parview and Parksense features along with their Uconnect infotainment system and the availability of a factory installed 5th wheel/gooseneck trailer prep package.
A full range of power plants are available on the Black Package Heavy Duty trucks. They include the all-new 6.4-liter HEMI V-8 with best-in-class (gas engine) 410 horsepower and 429 lb.-ft. of torque; the 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 and the renowned 6.7-liter Cummins Turbo Diesel I-6 which delivers 385 horsepower and a best-in-class (diesel engine) 850 lb.-ft. of torque with tow capacity of 30,000 pounds.
The 2014 Ram Heavy Duty Black package is available in Ram 2500 and 3500 SRW (Single Rear Wheel), Crew Cab and Mega Cab, Big Horn/Lone Star and Laramie models with the choice of two- or four-wheel-drive.
Orders can be placed now with Ram dealers for the Ram Heavy Duty Black Package. Pricing starts at $42,140, plus $1,195 destination charge.
