Starting MSRP, Features, and Seating

The baseline sticker price is always an important consideration for Hamden area truck buyers, and here you’ll find that the 1500 starts at $1,250 less than the 2500:

  • 2019 RAM 1500 – Starting MSRP $33,190
  • 2019 RAM 2500 – Starting MSRP $33,395

While the 2019 RAM 1500 can’t quite match the power or capability of the RAM 2500, it does offer roomier 6 passenger seating in the base trim model. The 2019 RAM 2500 base model can only seat up to 3 in its entry-level single-cab configuration.

Both trucks come with a parking assist feature and a 6-speaker sound system, while RAM 1500 is available with the optional RamBox® Cargo Management System. The RAM 1500 comes standard with Bluetooth connectivity, which has to be purchased on the RAM 2500 base model.
