Hello everyone! First post here, was wondering where to post a question about Ecodiesel pricing? I have finally decided that I am buying a Ram next year and am having a hard time figuring out a fair price. Specifically what percentage off MSRP is considered a good deal.

Hard to say as the pricing varies so much. Some MSRP in the mid-$30's while others are near twice that amount.


I would start at invoice price plus all available incentives at time of delivery.


You read that right...S T A R T!

Check online at the various dealers in your area. I have seen some dealers give an $8,000 "rebate" off the price similar to the hemi's and then I have seen some that will not budge an inch because of the supply and demand.
I couldn't even get a dealer swap on an ED when I began looking. The ones that have them are holding them at ransom. After owning mine since June, I can see why. I wouldn't part with my ED if someone offered me $10,000 over what I paid. Lord only knows how long I'd have to wait for the next one to come along.

Wilky323 I purchased mine yesterday. It was a Laramie Limited Crew 4x4. It had a sticker price of $57,515.00. I paid $53,000.00 I took advantage of the 72mts 0%. Not a great deal but a fair deal on what appears to be a great truck. I know I could have gotten better price if I had ordered a 15. The 0% no down payment was closer, as I can use their money. If you are willing to wait the supply will catch up with demand, making the dealers deal. It may take a bit as the motor is used in allot of other industrial equipment My problem was the truck was right in front of me, in the color and options I wanted (I fell in love, LOL). Drove it home about 120 miles it averaged 27.7 mpg. out of the box. I had a 05 Chevy Avalanche that I put 220K on and I still loved it. My Chevy had the LT trim package which I thought was nice. The Laramie interior is as nice as a BMW( seriously)! Clearly I am in the honey moon stage. I love the fit & finish. and the Eco is amazing. Its a 1500 ride with the fuel econ of a smaller car . Will post more as time goes on. Love that new car smell !!

I'm not sure we're going to see dealers so willing to incentivize the 2015/2016 EcoDiesels, the success of these trucks is no longer a secret, they're hot, people want them...

No reason you should be going over MSRP. If you can chip a few K away why not...

^ WHat he said. The fact that people want them is more than enough for them to be aggressive with selling them, they know that they can make an easy sale on someone else if it doesn't go well with you or someone else.

Mine listed at 56K and I got it for 42K. I'm happy with my deal but was short on the trade in, so who really knows if it was a good deal or not.

53,150 was sticker on mine. I was able to get to right about 11,000 off. This was on an ordered truck. No trades.....straight up purchase. The 11 grand included rebates and incentives and other negotiations. Also, once done negotiating but prior to a hand shake or signing anything, make sure you throw the "truck will be full of diesel and Def at time of delivery right"? LOL..... Good luck!

Just curious, how much was your trade? When I first read your post it seemed like you got 14 grand off sticker but on second read that included your trade.

If you don't mind I'd like to butt in on this pricing issue. I've always purchased trucks on the lot. Never ordered one. Can you actually order a specifically built truck AND negotiate the price?? I'd be surprised. This may sound silly but I don't even know how to go about sitting down with a sales guy, putting it all together. Then saying ok what's it gonna cost? He says uuuuuhhh all the options you want add up to 58k. Then I say "ok, I'll give you $51k"???????? Is that how that whole transaction goes down? LoL? Seems kinda odd to me

I ordered mine in the beginning of July and took delivery in the beginning of September. Ordered a heavily optioned up (really no air suspension is it ) laramie which stickered at 53 and change. With negotiations and rebates I scored almost 11 grand off the 53 msrp.

Really an ordered truck is the easiest sale a dealer can make in my opinion.
