Limited edition RAM 2500 Code Black gets class-leading rubber and a paintjob, but no under-bonnet treatment.

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, separating the 2500 Code Black from the likes of the FX4 is that 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.

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.

The RAM 2500 Code Black has a RRP of $149,500 plus statutory charges, delivery and dealer costs.
