    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.

    Check out the pricing structure table below. There are several option prices that quickly become evident.

    The 4×4 system costs an additional $3,500.

    The long-wheel-base (LWB) or the long bed option is $300 extra.

    The crew cab ranges between $2,700 – $2,800 in additional cost.

    The 5.7L HEMI V8 is an extra $1,195.

    The 5.7L HEMI V8 with eTorque mild hybrid (late availability) is $1,995 over the V6 eTorque.  This also lets us know that the V8 eTorque system is priced at $800.

      1. I think they did a great job with the exterior. I’ve wanted a power wagon for a while but I think I’m going to wait for the HD reveal.

        They kept the distinguishing Ram look while taking the redneck edge off the design.

        And the jump in capability is impressive. In the half ton class I’ve always been a Ford fan, but I think this will change that!

      1. “The 2018 Ford F-150 Super Cab 4×2 XL has a starting MSRP of $31,790. The 2018 Chevy Silverado 1500 4×2 WT starts at $32,400. The new 2019 Ram undercuts both Ford and Chevy on price.”

        1. Don’t forget about the destination fee involved. Ram is $1645. Ford is $1395 and Chevy is also $1395. But in the end all 3 manufacturers keep prices all about equal. It is the discounts that really determine your out the door cost.

          1. It’s a pretty big increase and they’re still undercutting on price. Along with bigger discounts you can see why Ram was gaining market share. They’re still not charging Ford and GM pricrd, but they’ve narrowed the gap

            1. What discounts are they offering on this new model? I didn’t think it even hit the streets yet to even offer discounts.

            2. Iomike, you’re funny. Buy a clue.
              RAM has continued to gain market share since they’ve dropped “Dodge” and went solely by Ram. Reasons why, they have built a better truck with higher end materials, most proven transmission on the market since the 8speed was debuted and best interior and infotainment system since uconnect and 8.4 inch display were introduced. All things Ram couldn’t say when they went by Dodge, consumers are noticing and finally making the switch. SIlverado will loose the #2 sales position.

            3. Willy, at first I was skeptical about your comment on Ram beating Chevy but I looked it up. Ram needed 85K (roughly)more units to beat Chevy. That is quite the accomplishment. It will come down this year to who likes the new truck and of course price point.

            4. “you can see why Ram WAS gaining market share”.

              The article talks about how the trucks went up a bit in price but are still cheaper than Ford and GM. Discounts have been larger as well, so I was pointing out how much cheaper the Ram is than Ford and GM, hence why they’re gaining market share.

              Obviously there are no discounts on the 2019s, which aren’t even for sale yet.

              Willy – continues to be clueless and speak up about things he doesn’t know about while ignoring facts.

            5. Jimmy John’s – don’t forget the GM sells two 1/2 ton trucks.

              Ram hasn’t beat GM until they sell more half tons and do so while selling them at the same price.

              Willy loves throwing out blind “best” titles with no facts to back it up.

    1. Lucky catch! Prices are back down again on Ram’s site.

      Glad to see they have come down to normal levels. Until this week dealers had MSRP of the Limited’s at $77,000 and Laramie’s $66,000 on cars.com.

    2. Did not see anything about the bumper steps desperately needed. Also was hoping they would add some up fitter switches to the new lower switch panel. Maybe PW and Rebel will see these?

    3. “It’s not yet clear how much extra the standard 5.7L HEMI V8 costs over the 3.6L V6 eTorque.”:
      A: $1195 option (down from $1495). Etorque is another 800 (so $1995)

      “We do not yet know how high a fully loaded 2019 Ram 1500 Limited will reach.”:
      A: $59,035 for limited crew

      I’m quite surprised at these prices. You can get a 19 quad Rebel for less than a 18 crew rebel and 19 big horn is considerably less than 18 big horn. I’m assuming dealerships and FCA are going to pull back the incentives.

      1. Jared, you’re much more in the know than I. Have a question about new ram:

        The e-locker on off-road and Rebel. I think allpar says it locks up until 10 mph. Is that correct? Ground speed or wheel speed? If i’m stuck in mud trying to get out, don’t want the elocker disengaging itself until i’m out of whatever sticky situation or pasutre/field i’m in.

        What did they change on the rear axle (other than 6 lug) to go from 3900# to 4100#? Will we be seeing more of the super 60 that’s not limited to 4×2 open diff? (max tow)

        1. Rustydodge, sorry I didn’t see this until now. Unfortunately it is not specified in the materials distributed so far whether the e-locker disengages based on wheel speed or vehicle speed. I agree it would definitely be frustrating having the e-locker disengage while trying to get unstuck. The following excerpts are from the released materials in relation to the e-locker and rear differential changes.

          “The standard 235 mm rear axle incorporates a variety of changes, including optimized material usage in the carrier and axle tubes and elimination of brake adapter plates, to cut more than 10 pounds from the assembly.”

          “New for 2019 is an electronic locking differential, available on 4WD trucks with the 3.21 and 3.55 final drive ratio and lifted suspension, and 2WD and 4WD trucks with the 3.92 ratio and the base or lifted suspension (Rebel and 4×4 Off-road Package). The electronic system gives the driver the capability to lock or unlock the differential on demand while traveling up to 10 mph, providing maximum traction to the vehicle when needed.”

          As for the Super 60 rear end I wouldn’t be surprised to see it in the upcoming TRX although I haven’t heard anything about it being spread around to any other models.

          1. I also forgot to mention that it may not even necessarily disgengage at 10MPH at all, based on the wording in the press materials it looks more like you can engage or disengage it via the push button at speeds of up to 10MPH. This makes a little more sense to me.

            1. Thanks for the reply. Yes, now that I re-read it i believe it can be engaged at up to 10 MPH. And they do not specify when or if ever it may automatically disengage. This is very good news.

              I was surprised the TRX was used the same front axle and same transfer case as a regular 1500, while the rear axle was different. Very interested to see what they end up with for production.

    4. Somebody tell my local dealers.

      They don’t stock anything under 45 grand.

      Sure they’ll come down from that price. But they still want 37 grand for a 1/2 ton, v8, 4×4, tradesman.

      Prices are much cheaper out of town. But during this tax return season I’m afraid they are just setting buyers up for a bait and switch.

    5. @jimmy, you are right about what truck consumers will like more. I’m basing my opinion off of all the comments I’ve read from this forum and others alike. I only post on TFL though, i was going by opinions before I switched to willy. IMO, Ram and Ford have been the most progressive. GM didn’t do enough on the interior and I really question some of their exterior design choices, examples- mirrors and gills. GM has tried to hard with their design and it looks like a transformer vehicle.
