While a Ram 1500 can handle light-duty towing and payloads, its heavy-duty stablemates provide more capacity. The first step into the Ram heavy-duty lineup is the Ram 2500, traditionally referred to as a ¾-ton pickup truck, although its payload capacity is considerably more than 1,500 pounds. If you need more capacity than the Ram 1500 provides, you’ll be interested in how much a 2024 Ram 2500 costs, both at the entry-level Tradesman and top-trimmed Limited levels.

2024 Ram 2500 Tradesman specs and pricing

Ram Trucks lists the starting MSRP for the Ram 2500 at $46,740. That price gets you into a 2024 Ram 2500 Tradesman equipped with a regular cab and an 8-foot-long truck bed, or box as Ram calls it. 

While the regular cab’s seating for three adults suits some buyers, most people opt for the crew cab version with seating for six. The Tradesman crew cab model comes with a choice between the 8-foot box for $50,755 or the shorter 6-foot 4-inch box for $50,555. 

The base Tradesman includes a 410-horsepower 6.4-liter V8, an eight-speed automatic transmission, and two-wheel drive. Option highlights for the Tradesmen include:

  • 6.7-liter Cummins turbo-diesel engine with a six-speed automatic transmission – $9,795
  • Four-wheel drive – $2,930
  • Chrome Appearance Group – $1,650
  • Safety Group – $2,690
  • Towing Technology Group – $2,396
  • Tradesman Level 2 Equipment Group – $2,580
  • Rear Wheelhouse liners – $195

These options, plus the $1,995 Destination Charge, brought the net MSRP of a regular cab, long box, 2024 Ram 2500 Tradesmen to $74,595.
