RAM HAS launched its limited edition 2500 Code Black on to the Australian market.
Much like the Ranger FX4, Hilux TRD and Colorado Z71, the Code Black – RAM’s first Australian limited edition version of the 2500 – has mainly been built to keep up appearances. However, it comes with class-leading rubber in the form of Nitto ‘Terra Grappler” 275/65R20 A/T 126/123R all-terrain tyres. These surround 20-inch black alloy wheels and are protected by heavy-duty wheel arch flares, also black.
The aesthetic upgrades mainly involve – as the name suggests – black paint, which has been splashed over the special edition RAM 2500’s grille, front and rear bumpers, the door-mounted rearview mirrors, and the badging.
Other than this cosmetic treatment, the special edition RAM 2500 is standard. A 6.7-litre Cummins turbo-diesel engine – capable of generating 276kW and a mammoth 1084Nm – is carried over and enables the ute to tow up to a massive 6942kg.
American Special Vehicles engineers all right-hand drive RAM utes for Australia and each vehicle is covered by a three year/100,000km warranty, which includes full parts and service support from a nationwide dealer network.
