Ram Shows Love For Tractors with Harvest Edition Trucks

Ram Shows Love For Tractors with Harvest Edition Trucks

Built for farm life and painted to match the tractor

Ram recently debuted a new line of special edition trucks at the Farm Progress Show in Decatur, Illinois called the Harvest Edition. The package is available on the Ram 1500, 2500, and 3500 in Quad, Crew, and Mega Cab configurations with all powertrains but the base V-6. Headlining the Harvest Edition are two paint colors: Case IH Red and New Holland Blue. Other upgrades include a one-inch increase in ride height on 1500 models, on/off-road tires, and other farm-ready accessories.

So, what’s the deal with Case and New Holland? Well, both tractor brands are owned by CNH Global – a holding company that also includes Fiat Industrial S.p.A. Ever notice how all the equipment seen in Ram media photos are Case? There’s your answer. (Too bad John Deere isn’t in the mix – that awesome shade of green would look great on a Ram.) Aside from the corporate affiliations and cross-marketing, the Harvest Edition Rams provide a real-life benefit for customers. Not only are the 1500s lifted one inch and come with meaty tires, all models have a specific list of options that cater to daily operations on a farm.

A new range-topping trim denoted by another metal

Ram is jumping aboard the metal trim train with Ford and Nissan. But rather than platinum, Ram is going tungsten with the Limited Tungsten Edition.

Ram boss, Mike Manley, says, “The new Tungsten Edition is an example of how Ram directly responds to customer input by offering the industry’s most luxurious pickup. Premium truck buyers will recognize the attention to detail, surrounded by quality materials.” And Ram sure knows how to sell premium pickups.

The Limited Tungsten Edition is available on the Ram 1500 Crew Cab and both Crew Cab and Mega Cab on HD trucks. The HDs are also offered with short- and long-beds, 2WD and 4WD, single- and dual-rear wheels, and gas and turbodiesel engines, making the Tungsten Edition widely applicable to various needs. Pricing for the 2018 Ram 1500 Limited Tungsten Edition starts at $55,120, which is roughly $2,200 more than the standard Limited trim.

“This is just the beginning,” continued Hegbloom, who will lead Ram’s North American and international arms. “We’ll continue to unfold the Ram Truck brand plan on a regional basis.”

Hegbloom went on to say Ram is using the IAA show to gather customer and media feedback while spreading the word on the truck brand’s global expansion.

2016 Mopar '16 Ram Rebel

2016 Mopar ’16 Ram Rebel

The Rebel gets personal with FCA’s ’16 Mopar package

The Ram Rebel is built for folks who aren’t satisfied with an average pickup. They’re looking for something with extra style, substance, and performance. The Ram Rebel provides that, all while covered under a factory warranty. You’d be hard-pressed to find a more “customized” truck on the dealer showroom. That sounds great and all, but Chrysler’s parts department, more commonly known as Mopar, has taken things further.

It’s called the Mopar ’16 Ram Rebel and it comes with several add-on accessories that further set it apart from other Ram Rebel pickups. In fact, Mopar is only building 500 examples in keeping with the “unique” nature of the truck. Now this isn’t the first time Mopar has done something of this nature. Starting back in 2010, the parts division created the Mopar ’10 Dodge Challenger. There’s also the Mopar ’11 Charger, Mopar ’12 Chrysler 300, Mopar ’13 Dart, Mopar ’14 Challenger, and Mopar ’15 Charger R/T.

“The new Ram Rebel has been a solid addition to the Ram lineup, providing customers with a truck that can deliver the added capability that their active lifestyles demand,” said Mike Manley, Head of Ram Brand, FCA – Global. “The Mopar ’16 content illustrates how customers can easily personalize a Ram truck with factory backed accessories."

Manley hits the nail on the head with that last statement. Ram and Mopar are trying to market the Mopar ’16 Ram Rebel as something to make customers interested in buying a Ram truck – and then modifying it – with Mopar parts. The aftermarket industry makes big money selling parts and accessories for vehicles, so this is FCA’s attempt at keeping that money in-house.

While the additions to the truck add character and style, the changes are all cosmetic. Customers can, however, purchase parts like cold-air intake and exhaust kits through Mopar.

So without further ramblings, let’s have a look at the Mopar ’16 Ram Rebel.
