2017 Black Ram 1500 Express

In case you opt for a mean-looking pickup truck with a powerful engine and rear-wheel drive, the 2017 Black Ram 1500 Express may be a perfect choice. The completely blacked-out version of the Ram 1500 Express will once again be available among numerous trim levels offered by this popular pickup. As its name hints, expect the Black Express to come with a monochrome exterior covered in glossy black paint and all-black cast aluminum 20-inch wheels. In addition to this head-turning styling, it will be motivated by a mighty Hemi V8 engine that adds to its menacing appeal. Compared to the previous models, the 2017 is due to arrive with only minor enhancements.
