About the 
1500 Classic

4. While the 1500 Classic has a spacious and comfy interior and makes for great ride on the highway, limited engine availability is one of the cons of this model. The only engines offered are the standard 3.6-liter V6 and the 5.7-liter V8 engine.

Frequently Asked Questions

4. What type of gas does the Ram 1500 Classic use?

Midgrade gasoline.

5. Will there be a 2020 version of the Ram Classic?

The starting price for the 2019 Ram 1500 Classic is $29,340. This is in comparison to the regular 1500 which has a starting price of $35,135. The Classic is already significantly behind the new 1500 in most respects, so, if Should Ram does indeed decide to refresh the 1500 Classic for 2020, it's not expected to last much longer than that model year; it's barely hanging on as it is right now.

7. How does the 2019 Ram 1500 Classic compare to its newer counterpart?

While the Classic reliably and consistently gets the job done, the redesigned Ram 1500 levels up the 1500 line by taking all the best features from the Classic and adding more safety tech, a more modern design, longer feature lineups, as well as greater towing and hauling capabilities.

8. How does the Ram 1500 differ from the Ram 1500 Classic?

With proper equipment, the new RAM 1500 is capable of towing up to 12,750 pounds. It also has a maximum payload capacity of 2,300 pounds and has more luxurious trimmings than the Classic. In terms of mileage, the RAM 1500 Classic gets about 17/25/20 mpg (city/highway/combined) at best.

Very low prices compared to everywhere else! Came from out of state. Was able to get everything straightened out with Nick and Keith over the phone before making the trip to the dealership. Only thing that needed to be done was decide financing options when arriving. Everyone was very up front and kind, which made the entire process super smooth! Highly recommend dealing with the salesmen Keith and Nick! Thanks for the great experience!
