RAM lays it on thick for exy Tungsten edition


RAM is taking truck opulence to a new level with the introduction of the new 2018 RAM Limited Tungsten Edition.

Tungsten builds on the popular Limited trim with an even higher level of sophistication and attention to detail.

A truck segment-first are Light Greystone suede headliner and ultra-premium “Natura Plus” Frost and Indigo-coloured premium leather throughout the cabin, including the seats, instrument panel, steering wheel, centre arm rest and doors.

Tungsten models also feature Indigo-colored carpet with rubber floormats and snap-out Frost and Indigo carpeted inserts.

Real wood interior components and unique badges complete the first-tier trim.

Leading the exterior on RAM’s halo trim is a Tungsten Chrome grille with large R-A-M lettering, a design modelled after the Limited.

The Tungsten Edition adds a sport hood (1500 only) to the body-colour matched bumpers, mirrors, door handles and running boards. Headlamps feature a Black surround borrowed from the Sport model, clearly distinguishing the new model.

Across the back, body-colour “R-A-M” letters cover the tailgate.

Tungsten Chrome accents and badging with unique Satin-painted Limited wheels complete the highest-level trim available from RAM.

RAM Tungsten is also equipped with air suspension (1500), navigational radio, remote start, backup camera, power adjustable pedals with memory, heated steering wheel, front ventilated and heated seats, heated rear seats and RamBox (Heavy Duty, 6-foot, 4-inch bed only).

The standard 8.4-inch Uconnect radio includes Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and SiriusXM Guardian.

Available soon Tungsten trim will be offered on the RAM 1500, Ram 2500 and Ram 3500 single- and dual-rear-wheel; Crew Cab and Mega Cab (Heavy Duty); four-wheel drive and two-wheel drive; and short- and long-wheelbase models.

“The Limited Tungsten Edition is the highest trim level RAM has made available,” RAM’s Mike Manley said.

“The new Tungsten Edition is an example of how Ram directly responds to customer input by offering the industry’s most luxurious pickup.

“Premium truck buyers will recognise the attention to detail, surrounded by quality materials.”
