Dodge introduced Ram Black Express
Ram Black Express goes Darth Vader
[Dodge had a '13 Black Express but this new all inclusive package is more extreme.]

"For those who believe black is beautiful, Chrysler's Ram division has your pickup truck.
It's the new Ram Black Express -- and it's black-on-black-on black. To Ram, that means it is "baddest-looking factory-built truck on the market.""

How black is it? There is a black paint job, black 20-inch black aluminum wheels, a black front fascia with fog lamps, black grille surround with black hex-link inserts, black rear bumper and black Ram's head badges on the grille and tailgate. The body-side badging was removed. Maybe it wasn't black enough.
"Ram Trucks are known for their bold, in-your-face presence," said Reid Bigland, CEO of the Ram truck brand, in a statement. "The new Black Express takes Ram's aggressive good looks to an all new sinister level by 'blackening out' the entire truck while maintaining a great price."

From article:
July 11, 2013
Ram introduced the Ram Black Express on Thursday. The locomotive-sounding name denotes the black on black styling, Hemi engine and a low starting price of $28,050.
The Black Express gets an all-black exterior, including the hexagon grille, fascias, bumpers and wheels. All the badging on the side of the body has been removed while the front and rear badges are redone in black. It also gets bi-functional halogen projector lamps with black bezels, amber LEDs for parking and turning, fog lights and black-finished taillights.
The 5.7-liter Hemi powers either two or four wheels. Output is rated at 395 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque. Chrysler says the Ram 1500 Express is “squarely aimed at first-time buyers and owners who are seeking performance with style.” We know that sounds like PR speak, but we actually agree: This is a good-looking truck. A six-speed automatic is standard with 8 speed automatic optional.
Inside, split-bench seats are in black and diesel gray with either carpeting or vinyl floor covering. Other features include a 5-inch touchscreen, MP3 adapter and air conditioning.
The Ram Black Express hits dealerships this month.

Hunter: Yes, I didn't catch that. Very clean looking.
Many moons ago, we would call this truck "Super Sano" Translation: super 'sanitized'.

Maybe it is for the promo photos, but those front side windows look very dark. Around me, the cops drive around with a light gun to measure tint on the spot. The ticket is almost $100 so the town loves to enforce the law. I got nailed back in 2006.

really like the idea, wonder if you can get an upgraded interior in black as well??? Don't like the idea of a bench seat and small screen radio.

Oh man me likey. If only it wasn't an express. I love mine but I would really like to get some extra options on my next one.

if the 6 speed has the regular shift Handle, it would be nice
if it doesn't, i would upgrade to the 8 speed

the radio with the 5" screen is the RA2
with a hi-res 5.0-inch touchscreen, MP3 player, mobile device integration and integrated Uconnect® Voice Command with Bluetooth®.
Available Parkview® Rear Back Up Camera+

saw one of these at a local dealer the other day, caught my eye for sure. however i dont like those wheels, and it needs to be available on the sport model as well so you can get all the upgrades on the inside

Saw a couple a local Dodge dealer today- really nice wheels up close- definitely eye catching- interior very basic looking- was surprised at the $38,500 sticker price.... OUCH!
