In honor of its history with U.S. farmers — after all, this is the truckmaker with the "Farmer" commercial — Ram just revealed a new trim called the Harvest Edition. We saw it in concept form (photo below) at the 2013 Specialty Equipment Market Association Show in Las Vegas.
The 2018 Harvest Edition will be offered across Ram's 1500/2500/3500 lineup of four-door pickups with the 5.7-liter and 6.4-liter Hemi gas engines and 6.7-liter Cummins diesel. The new trim will provide several popular, value-packed features in four colors: Case IH Red, New Holland Blue, Bright White and Brilliant Black. The red and blue choices pay tribute to parent company Fiat Chrysler Automobiles' historical ties to agricultural equipment manufacturers Case IH and New Holland. Monotone and two-tone color schemes with silver fender flares are also available.
Harvest Edition Rams will sport wavy cross-hair chrome grilles, chrome bumpers, chrome wheels (17 inch on 1500s and 18 inch on 2500/3500 models), chrome mirrors, door handles and exhaust tips (V-8 1500s only). Harvest Edition models also will have black tube steps, a spray-in bedliner, all-terrain tires, rubber floormats and heated seats; 4×4 models get extra skid plates and heavy-duty models get a cargo-view bed camera.
The 2018 Harvest Edition Rams will go on sale later this fall, with half-ton models starting at $41,305 (prices include destination) and the least expensive Ram HD model starting at $47,630.
