Thinking of getting a brand new truck

So, I'm considering signing on the dotted line and getting a brand new (2019) 2500 Tradesman, 4wd, 8' bed, crew cab. I really dont need all the fancy frilly stuff. I kind of like the "work truck" feel of the tradesman while still having the basic amenities. I'm kind of excited to see that they put the 8 speed tranny in those and that 6.4 hemi power plant.

With all that being said, what kind of typical problems are we having with these new trucks? Any tranny issues? MDS? Internal Engine?...etc. Also, other than obviously basic maintenance, is there anything I can or need to do in order to deter any of those issues?

So far I have had nothing more than suspension things with any of the new trucks
