To finance your Ram truck, you’ll need to seek out one of two options: a financing plan directly through the Ram dealership or a traditional auto loan with a bank or credit union. While convenience is the advantage of a dealership, you’ll more than likely find a better deal at a bank or credit union.
The Ram truck is known for its ability to get things done. While you may be eager to hit the worksite or drive down a dirt road, it’s important to have the right financing strategy first.
Car insurance broker and loan expert Jerry is here to help you crunch the numbers. Continue reading to find out everything you need to know about car loans for Ram vehicles.

How to get a Ram car loan

Before you can start hauling stuff around in your new or used Ram truck, you’re going to need a car loan with a solid financing strategy. You’ll want to initiate this process by checking your credit, comparing lenders, and getting preapproved.

Check your credit

Your credit score is a fundamental representation of your ability to pay back a given loan. Regardless of the vehicle, having a credit score greater than 660 is typically required to take out a car loan.
If your credit score is lower than 660, you likely won’t be able to reach a deal with a bank or credit union—but, there’s still hope. You may still qualify for a loan directly with the Ram dealership. The Ram financial services department can review other qualifications for a loan like personal references, proof of income, or a co-applicant.
Take a look at the table below to see the average APR and monthly payment for different Ram vehicles based on your credit score:

Compare lenders

With a better credit score, you’re going to have more lenders to choose from. Once you’ve figured out your qualifying options, consider following these guidelines when evaluating your loan offers:
  • Short loan term: 60 months or less
  • Low APR: 4.93 percent or lower
  • Affordable monthly payment: No more than 10 to 15% of your monthly income
  • **At least three quotes from different lenders
It’s easy to get overexcited about driving your new Ram truck and take the first offer you have. But make sure you take time to earnestly evaluate the best offer for you, your financial situation, and your lifestyle. Lenders with great customer service will be happy to discuss this with you.

Get preapproved

Getting preapproved for a car loan is a great strategy to get ahead of the negotiation process. A lender will often be more flexible on the terms of the loan if they are aware of your qualifications upfront.
To get preapproved, you’ll need to provide your lender with the following information:
  • Social Security number
  • Employment documents
  • Driver’s license or other photo ID
  • Proof of income (paystubs, etc.)
Key Takeaway To get a car loan for your Ram, you’ll want to check your credit score, compare lenders, and when possible, get preapproved.

Average loan term for a Ram car loan

Understanding and negotiating the terms of your loan are key to making it work with your personal financial situation. Here are some tips.
The average car loan in the United States is paid over a duration of 72 months (six years). But, you’ll want to try to negotiate with your lender for 60 months or less if possible.
With a short-term loan, you will pay less total interest over the tenure of the loan. Not to mention, you’ll pay off your debt more quickly.
Many Ram dealerships will offer loan terms as low as 24 months. If you can afford to pay off a loan earlier, it will always save you money in the long term. Regardless of the terms, dealerships often won’t enforce a prepayment penalty if you pay off your loan early. But make sure you ask.
For an idea of what your monthly payment and interest rate might look like depending on your loan term, see the table below.

Ram car loans: new vs. used

Car loans are not exclusively for new vehicles, you can finance a used Ram vehicle as well.
For newer Ram models, you’re likely to get a better deal on your car loan with the Ram dealership. For older Rams, you may want to consider a bank or credit union as your lender due to the higher APR on used vehicles.
But enough with the generalizations, let’s talk specifics. Here’s how your monthly payment and APR could break down based on your Ram’s model year.
