The 1500, 2500, and 3500 pickup versions of the Harvest Edition come equipped with large front tow hooks, a transfer-case skid plate, side steps, fog lamps, and a rear back-up camera.
The Harvest Edition comes in two limited-availability colors: Case IH Red and New Holland Blue (Brilliant Black and Bright White also available). The truck is also available across the Ram 3500 (SRW and DRW), 4500 and 5500 (DRW, 60-inch and 80-inch cab-to-axle lengths) Chassis Cab lineup, in all four-door Crew Cab and two-door Regular Cab configurations.
Optional powertrains include 4x4 versions of the 6.4-liter HEMI® V-8 or 6.7-liter Cummins Turbo Diesel.
"Addressing a direct request from farmers, Ram is the only manufacturer to offer Chassis Cab commercial trucks in colors that match two of the most popular lines of farm equipment in the nation," says Jim Morrison, head of Ram brand – FCA North America. "The Ram Harvest Edition Chassis Cab delivers high capability and gives farming families a way to show their agricultural brand loyalty."
Case IH and New Holland farm tractors and other agricultural equipment are manufactured by subsidiaries of CNH Industrial. CNH Industrial N.V. shares a common ancestry with Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N.V.

A large 7-inch reconfigurable cluster allows operators to monitor selected systems, such as filter life, engine hours, and operating temperatures. The interior also includes an auto-dimming rearview mirror, leather-wrapped steering wheel, steering-wheel audio controls and power-sliding rear window (Crew Cab).
The Harvest Edition features a premium exterior appearance packed with chrome highlights, including the grille, side steps, door handles, and mirrors. Polished aluminum wheels enhance all four corners (18-inch on 3500 models, 19.5-inch on 4500 and 5500 models).
