It’s that time of year when farmers everywhere are preparing for the autumn “collections” – and Ram is supporting the ones in the United States with the new Harvest Edition pickup trucks.
The automaker’s focus is on the nation’s growers – many farmers in the United States are getting ready to harvest their crops – so it’s a timely introduction for the Harvest Editions of the 1500, 2500, and 3500 pickup trucks in Quad, Crew, and Mega Cab guises. They’re also available in all cab lengths and equipped with all powertrains. The Harvest Edition models aren’t just for work – they also get extensive chrome trim on the outside, for the mesh grille, bumpers, and door handles. A set of black side steps ease access inside, and those relegated to the back get a fold-out step in the bumper for easier access to cargo. A spray-in bedliner keps the metal alive and well for longer, and protection al around is ensured by skid plates, tow hooks, mud flaps, and tires for working on- and off-road.
The 1500 on itself comes with a one-inch suspension lift and 17-inch chrome wheels, the Heavy Duty models get a cargo-view camera and 18-inch chrome wheels. The interior is fitted with the 8.4-inch infotainment system with navigation, 4G Wi-fi, Apple Carplay, and Android Auto, but there’s also more standard equipment: rubber floor mats and heated seats. If you’re crazy about design, then you’re in luck – the trucks can be ordered to match the owner’s farm equipment, with the new Case IH Red and New Holland Blue. The 1500 Harvest Edition kicks off at $41,305 after the $1,395 destination charge, with the cheapest Heavy Duty going for $47,630.
