Ironically, the Limited Night Edition is not that limited

Since most of the focus this year has been on the Ram 1500 TRX, the other trucks had taken a backseat in terms of updates and upgrades. However, Ram decided to throw in a little something for the 2021 model year. So it introduced a new ‘Limited Night Edition’ for the 1500 and the Heavy Duty trucks. These are pretty much just cosmetic upgrades, but well, something is better than nothing!

What Sets The ‘Limited Night Edition’ Apart From The Standard Models?

Before we get started, let me make it clear that this is different from the “Heavy Duty Limited Black Edition” that Ram introduced on the 2500 and 3500 pickup trucks in July. Unlike that one, the Limited Night Edition will be available on the 1500 as well. On the outside, this monochromatic package includes:

  • Black RAM grille and badging
  • Black surrounds
  • Black aluminum wheels
  • Black exhaust tips
  • Dark bezels in headlamps and taillamps
  • Black caps on wing mirrors
  • Body-colored bumpers

The 1500 comes with either 20- or 22-inch wheels. In the case of the 2500 and 3500, the single-rear-wheel trucks ride on 20-inch wheels, whereas the dual-rear-wheel trucks are outfitted with 17-inch black wheels with machined pockets. Of course, they are offered in the black shade. The 1500 models further benefit from tow hooks, a sport-performance hood, a tri-fold Tonneau cover, and a 19-speaker Harman-Kardon premium sound system.

How Much Does It Cost?

Ram has mentioned that the 2021 Ram 1500 Limited Night Edition will feature a starting sticker price of $60,045, excluding the $1,695 destination, whereas the HD Limited Night Edition will start at $62,930.

Final Thoughts

The Limited Night Edition will be available on the two-wheel-drive as well as the four-wheel-drive models. It can be had on Crew Cab and Mega Cab body style with all powertrain options. The automaker mentioned that the Limited Night Edition trucks will reach the dealerships in the “late third quarter of 2020”, which means you can expect them by the end of this month.

This is eerily similar to the Limited Black Edition that Ram introduced on the HD models. Probably, Ram could’ve just introduced the package on the 1500 models as well. Anyway, this is the latest package from Ram and it will please folks who detest chrome on their vehicles. What are your thoughts about the Ram Limited Black Edition trucks?

For the 2021 model year, Ram Truck is introducing new Limited Night Editions for the Ram 1500 and Ram 2500/3500 Heavy Duty models. These new models enhance the well-appointed Limited trim, offering truck buyers an even wider selection of exterior appointments and content for even greater personalization.

“Buyers demand a good-looking truck with easy-to-use features. They tell us that their Ram trucks are an extension of their personality, and they want to stand out from the crowd,” said Mike Koval Jr., Head of Ram Brand. “The stylish Limited Night edition offers another way for customers to do just that with the most capable light- and heavy-duty trucks with features and durability that continue to win over more and more buyers.”

The newest extension of Ram’s opulent offerings builds upon the luxurious Limited trim with even more comfort, technology and refinement. Ram 1500 and Heavy Duty Limited Night Editions include a monochromatic design enhanced by a black R-A-M grille, grille surround, badging, black aluminum wheels (20- or 22-inch on 1500 models) and exhaust tips. The headlamps and taillights feature dark bezels, while premium power mirrors with black caps and body-color bumpers are standard. A 19-speaker Harman Kardon premium sound system, sport performance hood (on 1500 models), tow hooks and a tri-fold tonneau cover adds even greater appeal to a well-rounded lineup that offers something for nearly every truck buyer.

The Ram Heavy Duty Limited Night Edition benefits from all of the aforementioned features (20-inch black wheels on single-rear-wheel trucks) while dual-rear-wheel trucks are equipped with 17-inch black wheels with machined pockets.

The Ram 1500 and Heavy Duty Limited Night Edition models are available on 4x2 and 4x4, Crew Cabs and Mega Cabs (on Heavy Duty models) with all powertrain options.

Ram 1500 and Heavy Duty Limited Night Edition trucks begin reaching dealerships late third quarter of 2020. Ram Heavy Duty Limited Night Editions are on sale now.

The 2021 Ram 1500 Limited Night has a starting MSRP of $60,045 (plus $1,695 destination) while Ram Heavy Duty Limited Night starts at $62,930.
