Everyone at Southside Dodge believes that three consecutive Truck of the Year awards for the Ram 1500 lineup speaks for itself. However, the story of the Ram 1500 goes beyond performance specs and awards. There is a parallel product lineup, the Ram 1500 Classic – a rare situation in the automotive industry.

What is the Ram 1500 Classic?


The current version of the Ram 1500 debuted its new production model in 2019. Ram chose to keep the previous generation in production, dubbing it the Classic version. Also, people have come to truly love the way the Classic model looks.  The chief difference between the Ram Classic and the regular production model includes feature availability, the Classic version’s iconic crosshair grille, and a few behind-the-scenes elements affecting power output, towing, and connectivity.


If someone is buying the Ram 1500 Classic for commercial purposes, they will be getting a very capable work truck platform that has a more consumer-friendly starting price. The inherent price break that comes with the Ram 1500 Classic could allow business owners (or any buyer) to choose a few more available options while still staying within their budget.



Ram Classic Performance Specs


Ram has made the current Classic version of the pickup available with two engine options. Southside Dodge customers can choose between a naturally aspirated 3.6-litre, V-6 engine or a 5.7-litre, V-8. The power plants will produce 305 and 395 horsepower, respectively. An eight-speed automatic transmission is employed by both engines.


Does the Ram 1500 Classic Support Smartphones?


There is almost nothing that can’t be accomplished using a smartphone these days. Ram recognizes these devices as an important tool and has equipped the Ram 1500 Classic with a smartphone-compatible infotainment system. Owners of the Ram 1500 Classic will be able to access:


  • Android Auto & Apple CarPlay
  • SiriusXM
  • 3D Navigation
  • 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot.


More Ram 1500 Classic Features


Certainly, the Ram 1500 Classic is built to work hard. However, the manufacturer has also made the full-size pickup truck as comfortable to use as possible. Some of the standard creature comforts that come with every Ram 1500 Classic include air conditioning and power windows. Some trim grades offer Dual-Zone Automatic Temperature Control. Additionally, if you’ll be using a laptop, tablet or other digital devices throughout the day, there is a 12-volt power outlet and plenty of charging-only USB ports to keep those devices powered all day.
