Our Ram 1500 Depreciation Analysis and Recommendations

If you check out our "comparisons" tab, you can select the Ram 1500, Ford F-150, and Silverado 1500, and see that the Ram doesn't fare that well when it comes to value retention in the _ ton pick-up market. While the heavier duty Ram 2500 and 3500 do better, the 1500 just doesn't stack up well against either Ford or Chevy. In fact, the Ram 1500 doesn't even meet an industry average, which is unusual for a pick-up, as these vehicles have held their value quite well over the years.

The 2019, 2018 & 2016 Ram 1500 model years are currently the best values.

On average, expect to pay only 70% of the original cost with 92% of the vehicle's lifetime remaining for a 2019 1500. That gives it a Net Used Value score of 21.84 which factors in annual maintenance costs, price decline, reliable years left and available inventory.

Also consider the 2018 & 2016 1500 model years. Those currently have a generally low risk of any significant depreciation over the next several years.

While we would advise holding onto this vehicle for a few years, that's not always the plan. Dealers have access to similar figures so they know that your vehicle has a low risk of depreciation.
