Following the debut of the Ram Rebel Black at the Detroit Auto Show, Ram is expanding the sinister-looking special-edition to its three-quarter and one-ton models at the Chicago Auto Show.

The 2017 Ram 2500 and 3500 Heavy Duty Night models will feature blacked-out exterior elements such as 20-inch wheels, grille surround with black billet inserts, lighting bezels and badges. Front and rear steel bumpers are body color. Black running boards will be available as an option.

For the interior, the Night package gets heated vinyl bucket seats with 10-way power adjustments, power adjustable pedals and dual-zone automatic climate controls.
