The main difference between 2019 Ram 1500 Quad Cab and Crew Cab is that the first one comes only with 6’4’’ bed. Owners of Crew Cab can get a short bed. Well, this will change many things, including maximum towing capacity, and of course, the price. For example, Quad Cab of the entry-level 2019 Ram 1500 Tradesman costs $32,000. If you pick Crew Cab configuration, 6’4’’ box will cost you just under $35,000. A short, 5’7’’ bed reduces the price to about $300 in the base configuration.
