Canada-only Ram Sport to start at $52,595 when new truck range goes on sale this spring
The all-new 2019 Ram 1500 will start at $42,095 in Quad Cab trim when it goes on sale in Canada this spring, FCA Canada announced March 8.
Production of Regular Cab will not begin until later in the year, and the pricing for those models will be announced closer to their on-sale date.
For now, $42,095 will get you the base model Tradesman Quad Cab 4×2, though the range will top out with Limited Crew Cab 4×4 V-8, available at $74,195 in Canada (all prices listed are before a $1,895 destination fee).
Turning the 3.6-litre Pentastar V-6 mild hybrid in the Tradesman and Big Horn models into a 5.7-litre HEMI V-8 with eight-speed automatic will tack on an additional $1,900 to that price. The eTorque mild hybrid system will similarly cost a $500 premium on the other trims standard with the HEMI.
The Canada-exclusive Ram Sport also got a sticker figure today: $52,595 for a Quad Cab 4×2, or a premium of about $10,000 versus any similar configuration Tradesman model. The Sport, unveiled at last month’s Toronto auto show, gets a monochromatic exterior with special badging and unique hood and appearance pieces.
