Ram has been slowly rolling out all of the models of their new 2019 Ram 1500 and the latest to hit the public spotlight is the work-oriented Tradesman. This no-nonsense model is aimed at the largest of pickup ownership categories, vocational use. Ram says its new truck is geared for small businessmen, construction, jobsites, and commercial fleets. And it comes in more colors than just white!
The 2019 Ram 1500 Tradesman will be available with two cab styles and two bed lengths in three configurations: Quad Cab with a 6-foot 4-inch long bed, Crew Cab with a 5-foot 7-inch short bed, or Crew Cab long bed. There’s been no report of an available standard cab and we suspect this will remain the case. Powertrains include a standard 3.6L Pentastar V-6 with the company’s eTorque mild hybrid system, or an optional 5.7L Hemi V-8 (which is available with or without the eTorque system.) Tradesman can be had with two or four-wheel drive.
There’s loads of options to customize your Tradesman, including 3.21 or 3.92 axle ratios; open, anti-spin, or locking rear differential; off-road suspension package with a factory lift and off-road tires; four-corner air suspension; folding trailer tow mirrors; trailer brake controller; side and bumper steps; and a spray-in bed liner, to name just a few.
Pricing for the 2019 Ram 1500 Tradesman starts at just $31,695 for a base, two-wheel drive, V-6 Quad Cab and go up from there. Tradesman is on sale now!
