The pricing has been announced for the 2020 Ram 1500. And the price is significantly less than the cheapest Chevy Silverado 1500 and Ford F-150 diesels, which go for $45,200 and $46,225.

The 1500 is powered by the new 3.0-liter V-6 EcoDiesel engine with an MSRP starting at $­­­­­­36,890 for the Tradesman Quad Cab 2WD, plus $1,695 destination. The EcoDiesel is a $4,995 option, or $3,000 premium over the 5.7-liter HEMI® V-8 eTorque ($3,300 on Tradesman, Big Horn/Lone Star, Rebel and Laramie base models).

The 2020 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel is available across all models and configurations, including a first-time offering in the Ram Rebel.

The Ram 1500’s all-new 3.0-liter V-6 EcoDiesel leads the half-ton pickup truck segment in torque with 480 lb.-ft. and diesel towing capability of 12,560 pounds.

The 2019 Ram 1500 Classic is also offered with the second-generation 3.0-liter EcoDiesel. Pricing for the Ram 1500 Classic EcoDiesel (Crew Cab 4×2) starts at $39,140, plus destination.

There is no information on fuel economy but it’s reported those numbers will be announced closer to when trucks go on sale later this year.
