The State Fair of Texas is underway, and with it comes a wave of pickup truck news to whet the appetites of enthusiasts looking for the latest and greatest coming from automakers. We can always expect a special edition or two (or three), and one of them is the new 2020 Ram 1500 Limited Black Edition.
Offered on its most premium trim level, the 2020 Ram 1500 Limited Black Edition distinguishes itself with a Texas-sized portion of unique standard equipment and visual design cues that separate this stealth wealth pickup truck from the pack. The Ram logo, badges, tow hooks, exhaust tips, grille surround, bumpers, door handles and side view mirrors all match the color of an empty void, and are matched by 22-inch wheels, tonneau cover and sport performance hood. The wheels definitely make this big black bruiser more suited as a street truck, as does its base 4×2 configuration. However, the 2020 Ram 1500 Limited Black Edition is highly configurable, and can be ordered in 4×4 flavor, and under the hood is the choice of a 3.6L V6 with eTorque, a 5.7L Hemi V8 and the 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 engine. In its most basic form, this special edition Ram truck has a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $53,690, but expect that number to climb much higher when selecting a few major options such as the Hemi V8.
Other options for the 2020 Ram 1500 include lighted and lockable RamBox cargo management system with adjustable tie-down cleats and bed divider, and the barn-door-style Multifunction Tailgate. Ram 1500 features a link-coil suspension for the segment’s best ride and handling, and is also available with an exclusive four-corner air suspension system with five different ride heights.
The 2020 Ram 1500 Limited Black Edition trucks will begin arriving in dealerships starting the late third quarter of this year. Which is actually right now, if you think about it.
