    SLT package is still being produced in US, but no information on websites or promotional material about SLT. Just on media release information.

    Ram 1500 Sport 4X2 is still listed as a RT on window sticker however, the truck does not carry the badge/logo anywhere on the truck. Attached is a pdf of a window sticker for a 2018 model after doing some research.

    Tradesman can also look like a 2009-2012 Sport,20" chrome wheels etc..But without a fancy interior and minus the console...I prefer a truck to have no console !

    Tradesman Black looks great ! You get a great looking truck,same Hemi,8 speed and for people who want awesome looks and who dont need all the fluff,extra stitching ,extra trim etc in the interior...And save $10,000 over a Sport !!

    I think the Tradesman is a package that you should see more of,great looking truck and alot cheaper than a Sport ! Unless you really want all the extra's,basically interior trim ..

    The more money I have the more I want to save it lol..When I had less money I wanted to look like I had more so I bought more expensive vehicles,now I have more money I want to save money lol...

    I do have a Hellcat Challenger and have a Tradesman Black Edition QuadCab Hemi ! Love it !! Black edition has the Sport headlights and taillights makes it a very good looking truck ! Nobody ever said I cheaped out on it !

    Cheers !

    I like the name Tradesman ....Nothing wrong with it...Do you have an accent lol ,maybe thats why you dont like the way it sounds ?

    I own a Tradesman Black Edition..I grew up riding in New Customized Dodge Tradesman Vans from the 70's as a kid..So I like the name Tradesman !

    Still not seeing a crosshair anywhere in the spyshots, any word on the fate of the iconic grille?
    Also on the tailgate, are the letters going to be raised as they are now, or rather pressed into the tailgate like the f150 and the Tundra?
    Headlights are looking pretty slick in this photo though, Laramie/ Sport/ Limited trim I assume.

    I asked this question in another thread because this ram will be my first truck purchase. I had many FCA suvs and cars but never a ram this will be my first but I do have a question. Hopefully someone can answer.

    The new Chevrolet Silverado commercial shows just how the next camo works. Its not just a bra over the front anymore. The put foam cut to make it look like another vehicle. Both FCA US and GM are doing this on their new 2019 pickups to make them look like Fords. Even their cut outs in the bras for the mesh for lighting mocks the F-150.

    A lot of it has to do with overall cost.... diesels are already a premium option adding that electric system to it would raise the truck very high. I see it happening in the future, but as of right now it has to do with overall cost of the unit.

    The reasoning for 48v is because modern vehicles have higher power needs. If they choose to go 48v it will more than likely stretch across the entire lineup.
