Ram 1500 gets $33,000 sticker for 2019 models


Ram Truck on Tuesday said its 2019 Ram 1500 pickup will have a starting Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price of $31,695 plus a $1,645 destination fee.

The all-new 2019 Ram 1500 is available in a wide range of offerings, from the well-equipped Tradesman Quad Cab 4×2’s $31,695 MSRP to the technology-leading Limited Crew Cab 4×4 V-8 with standard 12-inch Uconnect touchscreen at $57,390 plus destination.

Tradesman, Big Horn and Rebel pricing reflects the standard 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 eTorque mild hybrid powertrain. An optional 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 with 8-speed automatic transmission will add $1,195, while the eTorque-equipped HEMI is $1,995 extra.

Laramie, Laramie Longhorn and Limited pricing reflects the standard 5.7-liter HEMI V-8, while eTorque-equipped HEMI is an additional $800.

The 2019 Ram 1500 made its worldwide debut at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit earlier this year and dropped 225 pounds for the 2019 model year – 100 pounds of which was cut from the frame through the use of advanced materials and a patent-pending design change. Composed of 98 percent high-strength steel, Ram’s new backbone offers increased stiffness and durability for 12,700 pounds of towing capability and 2,300 pounds of payload.

One of the most noticeable high-tech changes in the 2019 Ram 1500 is the new Uconnect 4C with a big 12-inch touchscreen featuring split-screen capability, 360-degree camera views and exclusive content from SiriusXM with 360L. Active safety and security systems join the technology onslaught with adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, Blind-spot Monitoring and ready alert braking.
