2025 Ram 1500: New Prices and Surprises

Ram is gearing up for the debut of its 2025 Ram 1500 pickup, and the pricing details are starting to roll in. Set to hit dealerships in the first quarter of the year, let’s dive into what the numbers look like and what surprises Ram has in store for us.

Price Hikes Across the Board

The base model, Tradesman, kicks things off at $42,270, showing an increase of $855 compared to the 2024 model. But here’s where it gets interesting – the Longhorn trim sees a substantial $14,255 price jump, bringing it to $77,645. Meanwhile, the new luxury Tungsten trim makes a grand entrance with a hefty $89,150 price tag.

Under the Hood Changes

Ram is shaking things up under the hood. The Tradesman, Tradesman HFE, and Big Horn models will stick with the reliable 3.6-liter Pentastar V6. However, for an additional $2,695, you can opt for the standard-output Hurricane inline-six, a better deal than the current optional 5.7-liter Hemi V8.

The Laramie and Rebel trims will now come standard with the Hurricane, replacing the 5.7-liter as the only option for Crew Cab and 6-foot-4-inch bed configurations. The Limited and Longhorn, in rear-wheel-drive, will start with the 3.6-liter Pentastar and offer the 420-hp Hurricane. If you go for the four-wheel-drive versions, you’ll get the high-output Hurricane I6, boasting 540 hp and 521 lb-ft.

Meet the Tungsten: Luxury on Wheels

The new Tungsten trim, priced at $89,150, is not just about the digits. This four-wheel-drive beauty, equipped with the H.O. Hurricane, comes with a luxurious feature set. A leaked build sheet spilled the beans on a jeweled rotary shift knob, suede headliner, under-seat lighting, front passenger display, hands-free driving assistance, tri-fold tonneau, a power rear sliding window, a 33-gallon fuel tank, power tailgate, and massive 22-inch wheels. Ram also sweetens the deal with 24-way power seats, a 23-speaker Klipsch Reference Premiere audio system, dual wireless phone chargers, a metal pedal kit, and an interior decked out in Indigo and Sea Salt hues.

As we step back to the 2024 model year, the TRX production’s final hurrah reveals that the leaked pricing from August was right on target at $98,335. The new RHO trim, set to replace the TRX, will be rolling out with the HO Hurricane, promising an exciting evolution in the Ram lineup.
