2011 Ram Tradesman - 2011 Chicago Auto Show

A Hemi-powered, high-value homage to the hard-working set, the 2011 Ram Tradesman made its debut in Chicago loaded with can-do attitude. Based on a Ram 1500 ST regular cab pickup and offering short/long bed configurations and rear-drive/four-wheel-drive, the Tradesman option package includes an impressive feature set that focuses on the requirements of small businesses and commercial fleets with pricing that will start at just $22,780 when it goes on sale during the second quarter.

Power for the 2011 Ram Tradesman comes from a 5.7-liter Hemi V8 that makes 390 horses and 407 lb-ft of torque. Paired with the five-speed automatic transmission, it will return an impressive 20 mpg on the highway in rear-drive models. The Tradesman package also nets heavy-duty engine/transmission coolers, a Class IV trailer hitch that allows properly equipped variants to tow up to 10,450 pounds and exclusive 17-inch painted steel wheels.
