The diesel option is interesting when comes to used market. If you get just 10% off the price of your new truck. That means that the 8500 for the diesel option less 10% you paid 7650.00 for the diesel option on a new truck. But looking at the 2012 Ford F350 with diesel used retail price on NADA adds 8200 for the diesel option over gas. Not many other options worth more used than you paid for them new.

Yea, I thing the Ram guy is just a "LITTLE" high on his pricing LOL

All the current trucks interiors should be able to make it 10years without a problem. I firmly believe that the RAM is a great truck for the most part. Super innovative and has really set the bar from a tech and interior perspective. But there are still some serious gaps in overall quality and reliability (mainly from an electronic, structural, and hardware perspective.). Until they address those issues, I won't consider them.

Ford is Number 1

If you buy at the right time, ram quite often offers free diesel.


If buddy is looking between ford and ram, I can almost bet ram will be cheaper.

That wasn't the case a month ago when I looked, but???? A month or so back I bought my F250 that had an MSRP of $56,xxx for $43,xxx. I got it for $13250 off MSRP. The similar Ram- a 2500 Longhorn- was going to be around $46K. The same money would get a Tradesman which was really cheap feeling and the seats were horrid. Wasn't a contest at all for me after looking at them. However, he says that a local dealer has an ad for a 3500 Crew 4x4 Cummins Tradesman that is at $43,xxx. This dealer is known for running an ad for a specific stock number that is never available- the old bait and switch routine. I told him I thought that would be a great deal IF he could get it- also told him not to expect much of an interior and plan for some pretty uncomfortable seats. But he's needing a work truck, so it would probably work fine for his needs.

My last two Rams, both had free CUMMINS.

My 2500 list was 72, paid low 50.
My 3500 list was 74, paid low 50.

The 3500 longhorn Laramie dually I originally looked at was 91, they were offering it to me at 74.

All Canadian pricing.

Here's a little FYI tidbit.

The Canadian dollar is really in the crapper right now.
Americans might be wise to check out some Canadian dealers for pricing.

On my sabre, I paid 55 for it. Canadian.
I found quite a few in the states, that were selling for 55usd.

If you convert the 55 cdn I paid into usd. You would pay only 41k.

Just something to think about.

I don't know that I've ever seen a free Cummins upgrade in my area- but I think incentives change by region. I have seen free Hemi upgrades on 1/2 tons at times.

A deal like that would seal the deal for me!

This is the only free diesel offer I can find and then its only 5.5 gals

Another reason to hate Ram. They make them in Mexico and then sell them cheaper to Canadians!!!!

I wish they would offer that in the states, I would still need to order one though. I have looked for a Ram 3500 single rear wheel diesel crew cab short bed with 3.73 gears and can not find one within 500 miles. All the ones that I find have the 3.42 gears. I can't understand why the dealers change the standard 3.73 gears to the 3.42 on a 3500. If you are buying a 3500 you will most likely be pulling something and fuel mileage should not be that high on the must have list.
