2018 Ram Limited Tungsten Edition is the most luxurious pickup ever

Article by Christian A., on July 2, 2017

Nowadays, it is rather inevitable that luxury pickups have been quickly making rounds, and they have served as a significant asset for Ram ever since the brand separated itself from Dodge. Ram presently has various luxury trims including the Long Horn, Laramie and Limited produced among the 1500, 2500 and 3500 models and now it looks like they will introduce another vehicle to their line-up. According to the Fiat-Chrysler owned truck manufacturer, these trucks will be given a new range topping trim labelled the Limited Tungsten Edition.

2018 Ram Limited Tungsten Edition will be added to the already stellar line-up of Ram. The ultra swanky truck will be offered on the 1500, 2500 and 3500 in the 3rd quarter of this year and it will fetch around $55,120 for the high-end trim on the 1500. The newest edition offers more awesome luxurious novelties onto the recent range-topping Limited trim. We can recognize these premium units by the outer shell that will don a dark chrome grille with RAM engraving. For the trim and badges, there are metallic accents to match them.

The bumpers, door handles, mirror caps and running boards reflect the body color while its headlights flaunt the black surrounds from the Sport unit. Adding a final touch to the exterior enhancements are the satin-finish variants of the Limited wheels. Buyers can choose to have the Tungsten Edition in Bright White, Bright Silver Metallic, Delmonico Red Pearl, Brilliant Black Crystal, Granite Crystal Metallic, True Blue Pearl or Pearl White. However, the Maximum Steel Metallic will only be offered on the 1500. The Tungsten Edition's interior is where the magic begins.

The American truck automaker built the posh truck's interior with Natura Plus Frost and Indigo leather fitted up to the heated steering wheel and instrument panel. The truck's front seat has heating and ventilation, too. Furthermore, power adjustable pedals with memory are equipped to the truck with a rear heated bench. When passengers look up, their attention will immediately fall on a Light Greyston suede headliner.

There are also Indigo carpet and rubber floormats to protect the floor from mud and snow. The American automaker also fitted authentic wood trim that are seen on the door panels to add a more high-end touch. The truck also comes armed with an awesome 8.4-inch infotainment system with navigation, a backup camera and support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The standard of the Tungsten variant of the 1500 will come with air suspension, and the RamBox storage system will be further equipped with Heavy Duty models with the 6 foot, 4 inch bed.

Tungsten trim is obtainable on a large part of the Ram pickup line-up that includes both the single and dual rear wheel variants of the 3500. The trim will also be offered with either Crew Cab or Heavy Duty Mega Cab units. Customers can also opt for a 4 or 2-wheel drive and short or long-wheelbase pickups.

Press Release

Most Luxurious Ram Pickup Ever Combines Refinement, Efficiency and Class -- Announcing 2018 Ram Limited Tungsten Edition

Ram Truck brand is taking truck opulence to the highest level with the introduction of the new 2018 Ram Limited Tungsten Edition.

The enhanced interior and exterior trim aligns with Ram’s leadership in design and luxury.

“The Limited Tungsten Edition is the highest trim level Ram has made available,” said Mike Manley, Head of Ram Brand, FCA – Global. “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 recognize the attention to detail, surrounded by quality materials.”

Ram Tungsten builds on the popular Limited trim with an even higher level of sophistication and attention to detail. Notable additions are a truck segment-first Light Greystone suede headliner and ultra-premium “Natura Plus” Frost and Indigo-colored premium leather throughout the cabin including the seats, instrument panel, steering wheel, center 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 modeled after the Limited. The Tungsten Edition adds a sport hood (1500 only) to the body-color 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-colored “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.

Other Features

Ram Tungsten also is 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 Car Play, Android Auto and SiriusXM Guardian.

Available in the third quarter of 2017, Ram Limited 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 2018 Ram Limited Tungsten is available in the following colors: Bright Silver Metallic, Bright White, Brilliant Black Crystal, Delmonico Red Pearl, Granite Crystal Metallic, Maximum Steel Metallic (1500 only), Pearl White and True Blue Pearl.

Ram 1500 Limited Tungsten Edition MSRP starts at $55,120.

Luxury Pickup Segment

The luxury truck segment has grown significantly in the past nine years since Ram was launched as a stand-alone truck brand.

Heavy Duty pickup buyers gravitate toward luxury trims. More than 40 percent of the Ram 3500 Heavy Duty sales mix is in one of the brand’s three luxury trims.

Affluent truck buyers know that the new generation of luxury pickup trucks like the Ram Limited Tungsten Edition offer many of the features found in premium-priced cars and SUVs, but also offer hard-working capability that no passenger car can match.

Tungsten is considered a rare metal and known as one of the toughest things found in nature. The dense, heavy metal has the highest melting point of all the elements and is harder than steel. What better material to describe Ram’s highest trim.
