Ram updates for 2015

by David Zatz on

Ram will finally add the ProMaster City small van to the lineup at the end of this calendar year. So far, we have not heard of any other changes in the entire Ram lineup, including the heavy duty and Ram 1500 pickups, chassis cabs, ProMaster vans, and Ram Cargo Van.

Prices do not include destination charges of $1,195 on heavy duty pickups and chassis cabs, or $995 on ProMaster and Ram C/V. Hawaiians pay $50 extra. 

Ram’s heavy duty lines will start the year with a base price of $30,315 for the rear-drive, regular cab Tradesman Ram 2500; the Ram 3500 version of the same pickup is just about $600 more. Going to the 4×4 adds around $3,000, either way.

The much better equipped SLT model adds around $4,000 to both 2500 and 3500. Going from regular to crew cab adds $4,000 to the Tradesman (the short wheelbase crew cab is slightly cheaper).  The next leap up in space is the Mega Cab; there is no Tradesman version, but Ram 2500 Mega Cab SLT starts at $39,160, with the 3500 version at $40,680.

 

The top Ram 2500 pickup is the Laramie Longhorn 4×4, weighing in  at $54,250; the equivalent Ram 3500 is $55,380.

Chassis cabs start with the 3500 rear wheel drive regular cab ($31,505), and go up to the 5500 4×4 Crew ($43,305). Pricing for models above ST has not yet been released.

Ram ProMaster Cargo Van starts the year at $28,630 for the 1500 version, short wheelbase, and low roof; it tops out at $36,260, for the 159 inch wheelbase, extended high roof version. ProMaster sharply undercuts equivalent size-and-capacity Mercedes Sprinters, and is also sold as a cutaway and chassis cab.

Finally, the Ram C/V Tradesman, a minivan specifically and thoroughly refitted for commercial use, has a single model listing for $22,000.
