Buying competitive car insurance for a Dodge Ram in Arizona is pretty easy to do, but it depends on a complex formula that considers things such as how safe your vehicle is, your credit history, and blemishes on your driving record. Drivers pay around $1,070 per year to insure their Ram, but that price is a valuation using a 50-year-old married male driver with both comprehensive and collision coverage and $100 deductibles.
But there is a good chance that you're not a 50-year-old male, single instead of married, or maybe you're a renter instead of a homeowner. There is no perfect policy for every driver, so the best method for finding the cheapest insurance price for your Dodge is to compare as many rates as you can. Price quotes are quick and you will receive price comparisons from top-rated car insurance companies in Arizona.
The specific model of Ram has an effect on the cost of insurance, so the price you will be charged to insure a Ram Quad Cab ST 2WD will be $264 less than the cost to insure the higher-end Ram Quad Cab Laramie 4WD trim level, as shown in the table below.

Why you should be shopping around

Simply having a birthday, adding a teenager to your policy, or getting caught speeding may prompt premium changes that can cause some rates to be more affordable than the competition. Not only may your risk profile change, but insurance companies amend premium rates every year to reflect underwriting profits or losses. Larger than normal claims may cause rate hikes, while a better loss history may result in cheaper Ram insurance rates.
