Since I trade every 36 months I will keep that in mind when I start shopping for my new truck.
I just ran nada on used 1 ton, diesel, dual wheel, 4wd 2015s (i used all the same options and 5200 miles on all) and ford platinum, king ranch, chevy high country, gmc denali and gmc slt, and they all were worth about $5-8k more than a similarly equipped (again all the same options and mileage) ram longhorn.
Interesting, I'd never ran the numbers before on all of them, just had seen in the past that ram didn't hold its price as well as the others, but if initial price is so low, i guess it wont. But i know some people probably pay just as much or more for them. I'd say run the used numbers on them and compare to your purchase prices of all of them and see what your value difference would be.
