Ram announced new special editions of its 1500 half-ton and 2500 and 3500 heavy-duty pickup trucks at the 2019 State Fair of Texas, which opens to the public Friday and runs through Oct. 20 in Dallas. These new versions will have blacked-out exterior trim bits and wheels. Ram used regular shades of black for these special editions, unlike BMW’s Vantablack X6, which BMW claims is painted the blackest black.
