Ram Releases the Harvest Edition for Heavy-Duty Trucks
Back in 2017, the automaker Ram released truck editions especially designed for the farmers of America. Known as the 2018 Ram Harvest Edition, this was the end-all light-duty pickup truck for farmers who need a little extra help when grooming the land. The 2018 Ram Harvest Edition for the Ram 1500, 2500, and 3500 lineups was available in all four-door Quad, Crew, and Mega Cab configurations, all box lengths, and all powertrains. That means farmers could also choose whether they wanted a 5.7-liter Hemi V8, 6.4-liter Hemi V-8, or 6.7-liter Cummins Turbo Diesel engine depending on their payload and towing needs. For 2018 and 2019, Ram returns with the Ram Harvest Edition for the 3500, 4500, and 5500 heavy-duty pickup trucks and Chassis Cabs.
“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.” – Jim Morrison, Head of Ram Brand – FCA North America.
