RAM Depreciation

The Ram brand does OK, relative to other popular vehicle brands, in retaining its value. However, if you account for the fact that they only have pick-ups, Ram is disappointing, in that the Ram 1500 has one of the worst resale values for half-ton and smaller pick-ups. Interestingly, it is the heavier-duty pick-ups (2500 and 3500) which seem to retain their value more so than the 1500. If heavy duty pick-ups were their own segment, Ram would fare quite well among its peers.

The 2018 is our top pick for the best model year value for the RAM vehicles. With the 2018, you would only pay, on average, 69% of the price as new, with 75% of the vehicle's useful life remaining. The 2019 and 2016 model years are also attractive years for the RAM models, and provide a relatively good value. Our rankings consider multiple factors, including original new prices, current prices, maintenance costs and remaining years of overall predictabe expenses. Our top ranked model year represents the most car for the money with a RAM model.
