Auburn Hills-based FCA’s Ram has unveiled the 2018 2500/3500 Heavy Duty Longhorn Ram Rodeo Edition. It offers trailer-focused features and an interior that includes wood, leather, and steel trim.
The truck’s interior includes a suede headliner and details in black and tan. Its exterior design upgrades include body-colored bumpers and side-steps, “Longhorn” badging across the width of the tailgate, a Mopar bed step, and skid plate protection group.
The Ram Rodeo also has a fifth wheel/gooseneck trailer prep package and bed-view camera to provide owners with a factory solution for heavy trailers and offer a clear view to align with the hitch point. It also features Ram’s exclusive rear air suspension for comfort and load-leveling when hauling payload or trailer.
The Heavy Duty Longhorn Ram Rodeo Edition is available in Crew Cab and Mega Cab, 4×2 and 4×4 configurations. Standard 6.4-liter HEMI V-8 or optional 6.7-liter Cummins Turbo-diesel I-6 are available.

The Ram Rodeo brings together the advanced technology and towing content in America’s longest-lasting truck.”
