Ram’s 1500 Black Express is a simple but stylish pick-up truck ready to be zoomed on the roads and haul weights here and there. It can tow up to 10,650 pounds and haul 1,900 pounds. While it might not be as tough-looking as its contemporaries, Black Express has what it takes for substance and style.
Exterior and Interior
All you can ever see in this babe is pure black. From its badges to its 20-inch wheels, Ram refrained to do the highlights for toning. If you deem it necessary, the ebony-coloredtonneau cover is available for a smooth rear-end finish. Officially, when you want a Black Beauty, opt for Ram 1500 Black Express—it comes highly recommended, really!
It comes with a 5.0-inch Uconnect infotainment system that is quite competent with the standard 8-inch display setup. Navigating and controlling the system is a breeze and that’s a big thanks to the intuitive technology of the controls.
Engine, Transmission and Price
For a big truck like this, price tag is initially yet naturally inspected. But for a big 5.7L Hemi V8 at the price of $32,000 as tested, Black Express is quite a bargain. Another big point for this black beauty is its knob-operated transmission, but for some the classic column found in Express captures the excitement as the D figure is drawn invisibly.
