With the recent news of tariffs and taxing on trade, the government bail out of 6 billion dollars is not the only thing that will help farmers do well. With harvest time right around the corner, the Ram brand helps American farmers with their lineup of Class 3, 4 and 5 medium-duty Chassis Cab trucks. These heavy-duty trucks were designed distinctly for the agriculture industry. The 2018 Ram Harvest Edition combines innovation for increased work capability with the latest technology and modern appeal fitting for every owner and farmer. Introduced at the Husker Harvest Days in Grand Island, Nebraska in September 2018, these magnificent trucks will be available in the fall of 2018. South Florida and Southwest Florida Ram dealers know a farmer’s equipment is as important as the rain. That’s why creating special editions is a bit of a celebration for these hard working folks.

Examining the Ram Harvest Edition

Ram is supporting its agricultural bonds with the edition of a new Ram truck designed specifically for America’s farm families. The Harvest Edition arrives with standard technology that farmers need to make their work simpler. Every 2018 Ram Harvest Edition Chassis Cab commercial truck is loaded with functional features, including large front tow hooks, a transfer-case skid plate, side steps, fog lamps and a rear back-up camera. An optional 8.4-inch Uconnect 4C touchscreen radio with navigation is available. Modern standard features like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which gives drivers seamless connectivity, quick access to smartphone map mirroring and help in monitoring weather with the help of Sirius Weather are a big help for farmers. With the touch of a button, current weather maps and real-time forecasts can be pulled up. A wide 7-inch reconfigurable cluster enables operators to watch selected systems (filter life, engine hours and working temperatures). The interior also includes nice features like an auto-dimming rearview mirror, leather-wrapped steering wheel, steering-wheel audio controls and power-sliding rear window (Crew Cab).

“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. The Ram Harvest Edition Chassis Cab delivers high capability and gives farming families a way to show their agricultural brand loyalty,” said Jim Morrison, Head of Ram Brand – FCA North America.

Introduction of the Latest Harvest Edition Models

The Harvest Edition already existed in the 1500 and 2500 models, but now can be purchased in the Ram 3500 (in both SRW and DRW configurations), and the 4500 and 5500 (DRW configuration with 60-inch and 80-inch cab-to-axle lengths) Chassis Cab lineup. Every four-door Crew Cab and two-door Regular Cab configuration is available. Optional powertrains include 4×4 versions of the 6.4-liter HEMI® V-8 or 6.7-liter Cummins Turbo Diesel. The 2018 Ram Chassis Cab Harvest Edition is an agricultural market-specific truck that holds two limited-availability colors: Case IH Red and New Holland Blue. There’s also two additional paint colors of Brilliant Black and Bright White.

The Harvest Edition includes a superior exterior appearance stocked with chrome highlights, including the grille, side-steps, door handles and mirrors. Shiny aluminum wheels enhance all four corners (18-inch on 3500 models, 19.5-inch 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. The cost of the 2018 Ram Harvest Edition Chassis Cab 3500 begins at $43,990 MSRP (plus destination fee), the Ram 4500 starts at $48,140 MSRP (plus destination fee) and the Ram 5500 is listed at $49,240 MSRP (plus destination fee).
