|Driver Risk Profile||Annual Rate||Monthly Rate|
|High Risk Driver Age 30||$4,372||$364|
|Safe Driver Age 20||$3,830||$319|
|At-fault Accidents Age 40||$2,722||$227|
|Low Deductibles Age 40||$2,494||$208|
|Safe Driver Age 30||$2,030||$169|
|Safe Driver Age 40||$1,928||$161|

What can you glean from the chart above? Well, for starters, high-risk insurance is expensive. If you’re unfortunate enough to have multiple serious driving offenses like reckless driving or a DUI (or two), you’re going to be paying more. A lot more, actually. For a 30-year-old driver, having to buy a high-risk insurance policy more than doubles the cost of Ram pickup insurance.
If you’re looking to save money on car insurance, increasing deductibles from $500 to $1,000 could save around $292 per year when insuring a Ram 1500.
One of the quickest ways to lower your insurance rates is to increase your deductibles, providing you maintain adequate savings to pay the higher deductible in the event of a claim.
It should also be pretty apparent that as driver age increases, insurance rates decrease. It’s just human nature to become more conservative (less aggressive) as we age, and that translates into fewer accidents and claims. The reward is cheaper insurance for your favorite Ram truck!
The discount rate data point in the chart is a scenario where you are essentially the perfect risk for a car insurance company. You’re middle-aged, married, own your home, have multiple vehicles on the same policy, insure your home and auto with the same company, have a clean driving record and no claims and have great credit.
The more discounts you can check off, the lower your insurance rate will be.
What is the cheapest Ram 1500 insurance?
The cheapest Ram 1500 insurance is on the Tradesman Quad Cab 4WD trim level costing $1,712 per year. The next cheapest trim is the Tradesman Crew Cab 4WD at $1,754, and the third cheapest trim level is the Big Horn Quad Cab 4WD at $1,786 per year.
On the opposite end of the cost spectrum, the three most expensive Ram pickup trim levels to insure are the Ram 1500 TRX Level 2 Crew Cab 4WD, the Limited Longhorn Crew Cab 2WD, and the Limited Crew Cab 2WD trim levels at an estimated $2,076, $2,084, and $2,110 per year, respectively.
As a general rule, the lower the MSRP of a vehicle, the cheaper it will be to insure. This is primarily due to the higher cost that would be incurred by your car insurance company if the vehicle is totaled out from an accident or weather-related event. In the case of the Ram truck lineup, it stands to reason that a lower-cost work truck model like the Tradesman would have cheaper insurance rates than the high-end Laramie, Longhorn, Limited, and TRX models.

If you’re insuring a model like the Big Horn Quad Cab 4WD, the average rate is around $1,786 a year. Compare that to the cost to insure a GMC Sierra Denali Ultimate Crew Cab 4WD at around $2,140 a year and the cost of your Ram insurance isn’t so bad after all.
How much does Ram TRX insurance cost?
