2013 Ram 1500 Black Express: Take a Walk on the Dark Side


Over the years you’ve probably heard the expression “____ is the new black.” Here at Ram Trucks, we know black is the new black. That’s why we took a journey to the darker side of our personality to bring you the Ram 1500 Black Express, a truck with all the same great features you’ve come to expect from the standard Ram 1500 Express but with a bit of a sinister twist. Just behind the all-black grille and black ram’s head badge hides the confident roar of our 5.7-liter HEMI® V-8 engine producing 395 horsepower and 410 lb.-ft.

A cowl hood gives the truck an aggressive look, and projector headlamps bring light to the darkness, allowing you to see farther down the road. Don’t worry, though—the blackout isn’t over yet. Twenty-inch black wheels extend the all-black theme and feature chrome center caps that help give the wheel a distinctive pop. Body color front and rear bumpers continue the wrapped-in-black feel with only vertical fog lamps and bright-tipped dual exhausts offering points of light in the darkness.

It’s not all about looks, though. Just like a professional athlete in a finely tailored tuxedo, the Ram 1500 Black Express performs as good as it looks, boasting a max towing payload of 10,350 lbs. and max hauling payload of 1,660 lbs. when properly equipped. Add 20 mpg highway fuel economy and you’ve got yourself a truck that will make everyone on your block jealous.

Embrace your dark side with the new 2013 Ram 1500 Black Express.

    Put the Pentastar in the express option! I like mpg!

      The 5.7 HEMI is really good on gas,bet you wouldnt notice a difference in normal daily driving between the 5.7 HEMI and the 3.6 Pentastar.Only thing you would notice is the lack of a nice V-8 rumble,and the lack of excelleration performance with the V-6..If you dont floor it the 5.7 is really an economical engine,plus the get up and go is worth the extra 1 mpg at most (you never know when you need the extra power to make it to safety).
      I laugh at the Ford Eco-Boost F-150’s V-6 engines,they sound worse than a 1988 4cyl Ford Tempo !

    Have the 392 HEMI (6.4) as a option,I love POWER !

  • Ultracon

    Do these have the stupid rotary shifter that Ram stuck in the Sport?

    I can’t wait to put the headlights, taillights, and wheels from the Black Edition on my Blue Streak 2014 Ram 1500 Express…That will be an interesting look.
