Fiat Chrysler’s Ram Trucks brand has announced pricing for the all-new, 2019 Ram 1500 pickup truck: $31,695, plus a $1,695 destination fee. That makes it significantly more pricey than the 2018 Ford F-150 at $27,705 before destination, while General Motors still hasn’t announced pricing for its all-new, 2019 Chevrolet Silverado or GMC Sierra; the 2018 Silverado starts at $28,085.
That price tag of $31,695 will get you a 2019 Ram 1500 Tradesman 4×2 Quad Cab with a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 and eTorque mild-hybrid powertrain (late availability). Getting a 5.7-liter Hemi V8 installed under the hood, paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission, will cost another $1,195, while the 5.7L Hemi with eTorque mild-hybrid system will cost $1,995.
But while the 2019 Ram 1500’s base price has increased, the FCA brand says that many popular trims and content packages have come down in price. For instance, the Ram 1500 Bighorn 4×2 Quad Cab will start at just $35,695 before destination; the Ram Rebel 4×4 Quad Cab will start at $44,695; and the versatile Ram Box Cargo Management option can be had for $995.
At the top end of the spectrum, the 2019 Ram 1500 Limited 4×4 Crew Cab, with its premium interior and standard 12-inch Uconnect infotainment system, will start at $56,495.
“In launching the all-new 2019 Ram 1500, we knew it was important to offer class-leading features and technology. But it’s also important to offer our great product at a competitive price,” says FCA’s Head of the Ram Trucks Brand, Mike Manley. “We feel that we’ve delivered the right no-compromise mix that Ram Truck customers will appreciate.”
The all-new, 2019 Ram 1500 is already on its way to dealers across the United States.
