RAM 1500 Tradesman Heavy Duty Discontinued

RAM 1500 Tradesman Heavy Duty Discontinued

Noticeably missing from the 2013 RAM 1500 lineup is the Tradesman HD model, and chances are it won’t be returning anytime soon, if ever. 

The 1500 Tradesman HD looked like a 1500 but sported the suspension and chassis parts from a RAM 2500 HD. The goal was to offer half-ton buyers a stronger option, and RAM was one of the first major truck makers to do so with the 1500 Tradesman HD. But with the new half-ton models going into production next year, and the RAM HD models getting a redesign for their next-generation, building the 1500 Tradesman HD is probably not very high priority.

The 1500 Tradesman HD featured a 5.7-liter HEMI V8 under the hood with 383-hp and sported an eight-foot box. Its towing capacity was almost 4,000 lbs more than the non-HD model.
