Ram trucks is growing the range of options for the tradesman trim work truck today, adding crew cab and quad cab models to the lineup.
The tradesman trim package is made to fit the needs of the contractor or small business owner, offering the most power and towing capability with the least amount of luxury interior appointments to make the truck powerful and affordable.
Previously, the tradesman could only be purchased in regular cab models with the 5.7-liter Hemi V8 as the sole engine option. Now you can extend your Ram work truck by buying either the crew cab or quad cab models, both of which will seat 6 people. The crew cab gives you more backseat room for your passengers, while the quad cab gives you more bed space and less passenger room. Also newly available with the tradesman trim is the smaller 4.7L V8 which makes 310 hp and 330 lb. ft. of torque.
Standard options include Ram box, link-coil rear suspension, class IV hitch receiver, 4 and 7 pin trailer connections, forward opening doors on quad cab models, factory installed bed-liner, six speed automatic transmission and a 6 speaker stereo setup.
The Ram Tradesman quad cab will start at $27,330, the Crew Cab will start at $29,810 and the 1500 regular cab Tradesman will have a base price of $22,370.
