Honestly, I have ALWAYS seen Ram's drop 50% of their value or more in the first 3 years.
In late 1999, my father bought a brand new 2000 Ram 1500 SLT-Plus 4x4(leather interior, woodgrain etc, basically the equivalent of the Laramie at the time)...He paid a little undr $40,000, which was ALOT for a Half-ton truck then.
In early 2003 when he went to trade it in (after 3 trannies and 4 rear ends under warranty, in less than 40,000 miles), He was offered...wait for it...
The truck was mint, never wrecked, hauled around a 12' slide-in bed camper and a 24' Bayliner Ciera for those 2 summers, but other than that it was babied its whole life. Why they said it was only worth 16,000 dollars at 3 years old is beyond me. He ended up selling it privately for $23,000 and buying a Ford. After all the problems he had with his Dodge, he swore them off.
At that time, my mother had an 02 Chrysler Concorde Limited they bought brand new as well. Same story, 3 transmissions in 40k miles, and that car was babied too. Mom traded in on a Camry in 03 she was offered $12,000. It too was a $40,000 dollar car, but she wanted to be rid of it. She then traded up for a Lexus LS in 2008 when the LS600HL came out.
My father has seen, and even driven my ram. Its a nice truck to be sure. But he said he will never own another mopar product. The shitty dealer service and unreliable POS's he got twice in 2 years have shaken his confidence. I told him its not the same company since Fiat took over in 2009 and started redoing things, but he doesnt care.
Moral of the story, if you are gonna buy an american made vehicle, and you are worried about resale...wait till the next model year comes out if you are gonna buy it new and buy a leftover, and wait 2 model years if you want to buy used...that way someone else can absorb the depreciation.
