Most people are well aware that a commercial truck will cost more than a regular passenger vehicle. But that does not mean you have a clear idea of how much you need to budget for one. Since there are so many models, configurations, and upfits available, there is a huge range in the cost of commercial trucks. Even so, you can get a good idea of the general price range for a commercial truck as well as the factors that will affect its cost.
To give you an idea of how much you can expect to pay for a commercial truck, the price of our current inventory at Paul Sherry Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM ranges from $22,788 to $79,995. Those figures are for new commercial trucks. If you include used commercial trucks as well, our current inventory starts at as low as $13,975. Even focusing on the new trucks, this is still a very large range, so it may or may not answer your pricing questions.
For more clarification, consider price rankings for various commercial truck types. The most affordable commercial trucks tend to be cargo vans like the RAM ProMaster City, which is among the smaller commercial vehicle options but enough for many businesses. Chassis cabs based on the RAM ProMaster are also likely to be on the lower end of the spectrum. Upfitted and converted versions of the RAM ProMaster, like box trucks, tend to be in the higher end of the RAM ProMaster’s relatively affordable price range.
The more changes there are from the base version of the RAM ProMaster body, the more expensive it will be. As you approach the middle and higher parts of the price range for our new commercial trucks, you will start finding heavier-duty vehicles. These include variations of the RAM 3500, 4500, or 5500 chassis cab, with or without conversions, service bodies, and other upfits.
Custom Commercial Trucks Varying Based on Upfit
Keep in mind that our current inventory only gives you an idea of what you can find in a commercial truck and what it will cost. There is also the option of creating your own custom truck. This provides you the flexibility you need to get the type of upfit that works best for your needs, without having to pay for features or upfits you do not necessarily want or need.
When it comes to buying a custom commercial truck, the cost will vary based on your chosen upfit. You can get some idea of pricing variations based on our current inventory. However, the best way to get an estimate of the cost of a custom commercial truck is to consult with a member of our team. This is easiest in person, but we can also assist you over the phone or via live chat.
