Ram continues to target America’s farmers with the Harvest Edition of its Chassis Cab trucks, which go on sale in the third quarter of 2018.
Coming hot on the heels of last year’s models, the 2019MY versions will be available across the 3500, 4500 and 5500 Chassis Cab lineup, in Crew Cab and Regular Cab configurations, priced from $43,990, $48,140 and $49,240, respectively, without the $1,695 destination charge.
Optionally, clients can have them with the 6.4-liter HEMI V8 or the 6.7-liter Cummings turbodiesel engine, with four-wheel drive.
Said to be “loaded with functional features that are designed to work”, the special edition trucks feature chrome highlights in the grille, door handles, mirrors and side steps, polished aluminum wheels, a transfer-case skid plate, front tow hooks, side steps, fog lamps and a reversing camera. They’re finished in either Case Red or New Holland Blue, to match other farm vehicles found in the shed, although they can be had in Bright White or Brilliant Black as well.
While they may be designed to be operated in harsh conditions, the 2019 Ram Chassis Cab Harvest Edition trucks don’t miss out on the latest technologies inside. An 8.4-inch Uconnect 4C touchscreen infotainment with radio, navigation, 4G Wi-Fi capability, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto assists users, alongside smartphone map mirroring, Sirius Weather and others.
The 7-inch reconfigurable cluster is also part of the offering and allows drivers to monitor various systems, including engine hours, filter life and operating temperatures. Other gear includes the multi-function steering wheel that’s wrapped in leather, auto-dimming rearview mirror and power-sliding rear window in the Crew Cab versions.
