What is the 2019 Ram 1500 Classic?

February 25th, 2019 by

All New 2019 Ram 1500
Simply put, the 2019 Ram 1500 Classic is a carryover of the 2018 model. This still makes it a supremely capable pickup truck, but it’s very different from the All-New 2019 Ram 1500. Both will serve you well around Midwest City and Del City, but it’s worth over the differences so you know what you’re getting.

All-New Ram 1500 vs. Classic: Price

The price tag is perhaps the most obvious difference: the 2019 Ram 1500 Classic starts at $27,395, while the All-New 2019 Ram 1500 starts at $31,795. The difference isn’t just for show, though, since the All-New Ram 1500 is completely redesigned and boasts new exterior styling. It also sports such new features as eTorque mild-hybrid engine assist technology, an infotainment system with a 12-inch touchscreen, and an available Harman Kardon audio system. It’s also 225 pounds lighter than the Ram 1500 Classic.

Engine Options

While both models offer plenty of power to handle tough jobs around Chandler, the engine options do differ between the two pickup trucks.

Towing and Payload

  • All-New 2019 Ram 1500: Tows up to 12,750 pounds and handles a payload of up to 2,300 pounds.
