The 2019 Ram 1500 pricing has been announced and the new truck will start at $31,695 for a Tradesman quad-cab 4×2. Additionally, there is no pricing for a regular cab nor confirmation of one coming.
First, the pricing represents an $800 increase over the 2018 model and is really only $400 more after factoring in inflation. With a new design, technology and more safety technology, the pricing is quite good for the new truck.
Second, the lack of a regular cab for the 2019 has drawn some attention from truck fans. Currently, Ram is still building regular cab pickups for the 2018 models and will continue until that production ends.
We spoke with Ram who confirmed the 2018 regular cab, but didn’t confirm a 2019 regular cab model was on the way.
With truck sales being dominated by crew cabs, luxury pickups and ongoing uncertainty over new EPA fuel economy guidelines (see: CAFE could kill regular cab pickups story host Tim Esterdahl wrote years ago) and the lack of a regular cab confirmation isn’t all that surprising.
