The 2018 Ram Chassis Cab Harvest Edition is an agricultural market-specific truck and is visually distinguished by two limited-availability colors: Case IH Red and New Holland Blue (Brilliant Black and Bright White also available). “
Addressing a direct request from farmers, Ram is the only manufacturer to offer Chassis Cab commercial trucks in colors that match two of the most popular lines of farm equipment in the nation,” said Jim Morrison, Head of Ram Brand – FCA North America.
In August 2017, Ram launched 1500, 2500 and 3500 pickup versions of the Harvest Edition. Case IH and New Holland farm tractors and other agricultural equipment are manufactured by subsidiaries of CNH Industrial. CNH Industrial N.V. shares a common ancestry with Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N.V.
The Harvest Edition will be available across the Ram 3500 (SRW and DRW), 4500 and 5500 (DRW, 60-in. and 80-in. cab-to-axle lengths) Chassis Cab lineup, in all four-door Crew Cab and two-door Regular Cab configurations. Optional powertrains include 4x4 versions of the 6.4-liter HEMI V-8 or 6.7-liter Cummins Turbo Diesel.
Harvest Edition Chassis Cab trucks include functional features that are designed to work, including large front tow hooks, a transfer-case skid plate, side steps, fog lamps and a rear back-up camera. The Harvest Edition comes standard with an optional 8.4-inch Uconnect 4C touchscreen radio with navigation, 4G Wi-Fi capability, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which gives buyers seamless connectivity, fingertip access to smartphone map mirroring, and Sirius Weather with up-to-the minute weather maps and forecasts customizable to any location in the nation.
A 7-in. reconfigurable cluster allows operators to monitor selected systems, such as filter life, engine hours and operating temperatures. The interior also includes an auto-dimming rearview mirror, leather-wrapped steering wheel, steering-wheel audio controls and power-sliding rear window (Crew Cab).
The Harvest Edition features a premium exterior appearance packed with chrome highlights, including the grille, side-steps, door handles and mirrors. Polished aluminum wheels enhance all four corners (18-in. on 3500 models, 19.5-in. on 4500 and 5500 models). The Harvest package also includes body-color (or Bright Silver) wheel flares and upper fascia (3500). In addition to Case Red and New Holland Blue, Harvest Edition Ram trucks are also available in Bright White or Brilliant Black.
