If you are in the market for a Ram truck, then you can grab a bargain at a New Mexico truck auction. Truck auctions have proven to be an extremely effective way to get great deals on reliable, quality used trucks, and the Ram is no exception. Technically, as of 2011 the Dodge Ram was discontinued, however it is the centerpiece of the Chrysler’s new Ram brand. The key to having a bargain at a New Mexico Ram truck auction is knowing the market value of each vehicle. More specifically, you need to be able to identify certain years in which the market value decreases significantly.
The Dodge Ram 1500 has several years over the last decade which are ideal in terms of market value. The first is the 2007 Dodge Ram 1500 because it is nearly $2000 less than the 2008 version. There is also a sharp decline in the price of a 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 which is also nearly $2000 less than the 2005 version. When looking at the history of the truck, it is surprising that these two years offer the best value because they are both part of the third-generation of Dodge Ram 1500’s. Additionally, the 2007 model year featured an increase in power to 310 hp through its 4.7 V8 engine.
If a Dodge Ram 2500 is what you’re looking for then the years which offer the best value is 2008, 2007, and 2004. All of these years are at least $2000 cheaper than the next year. To be fair, the Dodge ram 2500 tends to decrease between $1000 and $1500 on a yearly basis anyways. Again, these are all part of the third-generation Ram 2500. If you are trying to grab a bargain at a New Mexico Ram truck auction, then you’ll need to pay close attention to the Ram 2500’s. There tend to be less of them available, which means the competition for each will be a little more intense than the 1500’s.
When tracking down a Dodge Ram 3500 the best deal will likely be the 2008 or 2005. The 2008 Dodge Ram 3500 has an average market value that is nearly $6000 less than the 2009 and the 2005 version is almost $3000 less than the 2006. Keep in mind that there are some fairly large differences between the 2005 and 2006 Dodge ram 3500. Namely the introduction of the Mega Cab in 2006 with a restyled interior and additional higher-end features and styling.
One problem that you may run into when trying to take advantage of a New Mexico Ram truck auction is that sometimes truck auctions don’t have very many Dodge trucks. This can make tracking down auctions and monitoring upcoming listings very time-consuming and difficult to manage. In order to streamline the research process, it’s much easier to use a database which aggregates all of the listings in the entire state. Currently, these can be found at online truck auction websites. The best part is you can sort through these listings automatically so that you will only be shown the available Dodge Rams and what auctions they are available at.
