About the Ram 1500

The Ram 1500 pickup range carries more expensive pricing into 2023, with some minor specification tweaks across the range rolled out late in 2022.

Pricing for the Ram 1500 is up by between $2000 and $20,000 depending on the variant. The range starts at $98,950 before on-road costs for the Express Crew Cab, and extends to $219,950 before on-roads for the fire-breathing TRX.

The former entry-level Express Quad Cab has been discontinued, though Ram Trucks Australia says there’s still a handful left in dealer stock.

The 1500 Laramie is currently unavailable with the optional Safety Pack due to semiconductor shortages.

This means safety features including blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, lane departure warning, lane-keep assist, semi-autonomous park assist, surround-view camera, and adaptive cruise control are only available on the 1500 Limited and TRX.

Electric side steps are also now standard on the 1500 Laramie.

The flagship TRX has a panoramic sunroof as standard. It was previously an option.
