This is the third dark-themed truck package to report on from the 2019 State Fair of Texas. To be honest, we think everybody is copying each other’s homework, and it would be nice to see a splash of color on these big-bodied bruisers. At least with the 2020 Ram Heavy Duty Night Edition, it can be had in any factory paint color you want.
The 2020 Ram Heavy Duty Night Edition is available on Big Horn and Laramie models, and comes with a black grille with a body-color surround, black badging, darkened headlight and taillight bezels, and black 20-inch wheels. Even dually pickup trucks with their workhorse 17-inch wheels will enter the dark side for the first time. Be it Laramie or Long Horn, the Night Edition package is available on Ram 2500 and 3500 4×2 and 4×4 Crew Cab and Mega Cab body styles with a choice of either a 6.4-liter HEMI V-8 or 6.7-liter Cummins I6 with an available 1,000 lb-ft of torque. And, while it can be had for much more depending on the vehicle configuration, the 2020 Ram Heavy Duty Night Edition has a starting MSRP of $37,995 and will go on sale in Q4 2019.
The Night Edition is also available on the 2020 Ram 1500.
FCA previously announced a few notable updates for the 2020 Ram Heavy Duty lineup. For instance, Lane Keep Assist is now available on all trim levels, as well as connected services on all levels of radio systems, plus dual auxiliary camera capability. Olive Green and Hydro Blue were also added to the color palette. For those about the long haul, a massive 50-gallon fuel tank is now standard on 2020 Ram HD trucks equipped with an eight-foot bed. As a minor update, all trim levels now have an available tire pressure monitoring system, while the auxiliary camera system can support two different cameras. The 2020 Ram Power Wagon (pictured below) also gains a black wheel option.
