The Tungsten Edition will be a choice in the third quarter of this year on Ram 1500, 2500, and 3500 crew-cab and megacab designs. Regrettably, the 2018 Ram Limited Tungsten Edition is simply the name of a trim level that will sit atop the currently upper-crusty Limited however provides none of that uncommon, denser-than-lead product that boasts the greatest melting point of all metals. Ram Tungsten designs are more like Fords that are labeled Platinum– it’s just a method to inform the world the owner dropped over a few of additional nickels on the purchase.
The Tungsten is identified from the more plebeian Ram Limited by a segment-first suede headliner, special white-and-indigo leather not unlike that in the Jeep Grand Cherokee Top, real wood trim, and body-color exterior elements. Basic functions on the Limited such as air suspension, a heated steering wheel, heated and ventilated front seats, as well as Uconnect infotainment having an 8.4-inch touchscreen, including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, remain for the show at the upper level. The Tungsten’s chrome grille and badging will differentiate owners from those who couldn’t pay for the upgrade.
Ram provides the 1500 Tungsten Edition for $56,515, which is a simple $2245 over the 2017 cost for the Limited model. Marking off atomic number 74 on the option sheet can be anticipated to pump up the rate of a fully filled Ram 3500 to around $85,000 range. If Fiat Chrysler has the ability to effectively ward off dealer markups, that would be under $500 of a wheelie-popping 840-hp, nine-second Demon.
