  • 2013 Ram 1500 Black Express


Pickup trucks are back in a big way this year, and that’s good for fans, especially when they’re this bad.

As its name so aptly implies, the 2013 Ram Black Express is a blacked-out version of the 1500 Express; complete with all-black exterior trim, black 20-inch wheels, black bezels on the projector beam headlights and badge delete on the sides.

Nigel Tufnel would say it's none more black.

The Black Express comes standard with a 395 hp 5.7-liter HEMI V8 under the hood and rear-wheel-drive for $28,250. Regular, quad and crew cab versions are available, and a 4x4 drivetrain is an option.

Properly outfitted, the Black Express has a maximum to rating of 10,350 pounds, but good luck finding something appropriately menacing enough to pull with it.

May we suggest Stonehenge?
