Ram Cultivates Farmer-Friendly Truck with 2018 Harvest Edition
Designed to serve farmers in America, Ram has launched the 2018 Harvest Edition, a first-ever truck specifically designed to handle the challenging demands of the agricultural industry. The new truck also boasts new and industry-significant color options—New Holland Blue and Case IH Red.
“The Ram Harvest Edition marks the first time that Ram dealers will be able to stock trucks that exactly match the colors of two of the most popular lines of farm equipment in the nation,” said Mike Manley, Head of Jeep & Ram Brands – FCA Global. “Farmers have been asking for these colors, and Ram is proud to be the first in the industry to be able to offer them. The Ram Harvest Edition truck will allow farm families to get their work done while proudly showing their agricultural brand loyalty.”

“Because Ram knows farmers are tech savvy, the Harvest Edition comes standard with an 8.4-inch Uconnect 4C touchscreen radio with navigation, 4G Wi-Fi, Apple Car Play and Android Auto, which gives buyers seamless connectivity, fingertip access to smartphone map mirroring, and up-to-the minute weather maps and forecasts customizable to any location in the nation,” according to FCA of North America.
Plus, the 2018 Harvest Edition truck looks sharp with chrome mirrors, chrome door handles and chrome “Wave Mesh” luxury cross-hair grille.
