Ram has already been talking up its new 2500 heavy duty truck. We know for instance that you can get a giant 6.7L Cummins turbodiesel that makes 400hp and 1,000 lb-ft of torque. The key fact about the heavy duty trucks we were unsure of was the cost.
Ram has now made the pricing of the truck official. The cheapest 2500 HD truck for 2019 is the 2500 Tradesman regular cab 4×2 starting at $35,090. Add 4×4 to the mix, and it costs $2,900 more.
If you want a diesel engine, that option alone adds $9,100 to the base price, and that isn’t even the 1,000 lb-ft engine. To get that 400hp, 1000 lb-ft diesel engine you must opt for the Ram 3500, starting at $36,540, the torque monster diesel adds another $11,795 to the base. Want a 3500 4×4 Mega Cab Limited with the big diesel, you will start at $80,540 before adding any options.
