The all-new 2019 Ram 1500 Tradesman Quad cab 4×2 truck has a starting MSRP of $31,695 before the $1,645 destination fee. Ram announces pricing across the entire range of 2019 trucks as the trucks start shipping to dealerships.
How does the new truck price compare against the outgoing 2018 Ram 1500? The starting price for the base Tradesman goes up by exactly $800 (from $30,895 for the 2018 model). The destination fee also goes up by a sizable $300. In the end, the new V6-powered truck will start $1,100 higher.
That is for a base model, but Ram is offering big saving for 2019 Ram 1500 BigHorn and Rebel models. Take a look at the graphic below. The BigHorn starts at $2,150 less, and the Rebel starts at $1,500 less than for 2018 models.
What do you get for this additional cost? The 2019 truck is all new from the redesigned frame to the 12-inch infotainment screen on the high-end Longhorn and Limited models. The 2019 truck with the V6 also comes with a mild-hybrid electric system that boosts initial acceleration with an additional 90 lb-ft of torque. It is said to make the truck more efficient, although final MPG rating are not announced yet. Here is a video that describes the 2019 Ram 1500 in full detail.
