The Truck Comes With Three Different Engine Choices

Ram 1500 Limited Black Edition

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.

Muscle Cars & Trucks was founded by Manoli Katakis - an automotive media veteran that has been covering the latest car news since 2009. His journalism has uncovered dozens of major product changes, updates, plans, and cancellations long before automakers were ready to make things official.

Some highlights over the years of his reporting include the uncovering of the Zora trademark before anybody else reported on the coming of a mid-engine Corvette, as well as the dead-accurate reporting of the coming of the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2, two years before it hit the market, and even before the debut of the concept vehicle. This type of reporting has immediately continued here, with reports of the original seventh-generation Camaro plans being shelved, as well as what's in store for the Chevrolet Silverado.

Some of his work can be found on massive automotive media outlets, such as Motor1. He also has been a guest on the 910AM Radio Station with Detroit News auto critic Henry Payne, as well as the enthusiast-oriented Camaro Show podcast.

Over the years, Manoli has interviewed various automotive industry titans, leaders, and people that make things happen otherwise. These include figureheads such as GM CEO Mary Barra, GM President Mark Reuss, automotive aftermarket icon Ken Lingenfelter, Dodge firebrand Tim Kuniskis, along with various chief engineers of vehicles such as the Ford F-150 & Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro & Corvette, and many more.

At MC&T, Manoli is taking his journalism expertise, deeply planted sources, driving abilities, and automotive industry knowledge to new levels, covering more vehicles and brands than ever before. This is the place where you will continue to read groundbreaking stories about American performance vehicles, pickup trucks, and sport utility vehicles.

Besides a go-kart, the smallest vehicle he’s driven has been a Hyundai i10. He’s also spent time in the cockpit of various American performance vehicle icons, including the fifth-generation Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, Dodge Challenger Demon, and Ford Mustang GT350R.
