Ram has been dominating lately with its Ram 1500. The rough and tough pickup was recently ranked first among light-duty pickup trucks in a 2021 APPEAL Study. Given its capability, durability, and overall toughness as a pickup, the Ram 1500 has continued to be an iconic truck. Ram offers the Ram 1500 with a range of combinations and features. Consumers wanting a truck oriented toward hauling can opt for Towing packages while those looking for an everyday truck can opt for more luxurious trims like the Laramie or Rebel trim. Better still, Ram offers specialty Ram trucks like the TRX RexRunner for those wanting more excitement out of their pickup. All these are great choices but one Ram pickup that holds up and is relatively affordable is the Ram 1500 Classic. We’ll take a look at this light-duty pickup and check out its versatility.
Checking Out The Ram 1500 Classic
The Ram 1500 Classic is one of the most affordable yet capable pickups available. The pickup starts at an MSRP of $29,490 (plus destination fee) and comes standard with a 3.6L V6 engine capable of 305 horsepower. Consumers can opt for higher outputs like a 5.7L Hemi V8, but the V6 can certainly get the job done. The Ram 1500 Classic uses an automatic transmission and it can tow up to 8240 pounds when equipped with the right features. Given the capabilities, this pickup is well worth the price.
Where the Ram 1500 Classic shines is with its powertrain and affordable price. While the interior and exterior may not be anything to brag about, it’s likely that those consumers wanting an affordable pickup may not be too concerned with luxury and design. The exterior of the Ram Classic, for example, is a throwback to previous Ram trucks so there isn’t too much in terms of detail. This is also a way to save costs. Still, there are three trim levels for the pickup including the Tradesmen, the Express, and the Warlock. The Tradesmens trim features a black neutral front design and simple wheels. The Express trim comes with a painted front end and upgraded wheels. The Warlock trim is the higher-end of the three and it features a new front fascia and aggressive paint schemes. It also comes with black wheels.
Though the Ram 1500 Classic looks pretty barebones both inside and out, it features different body style options. Consumers can opt for either a two-door style or, with an extended cab option, a four-door style. The Ram’s bed comes standard at 6 foot 4 inches but an 8-foot option can be chosen as well. For those wanting more durability, a 4×4 option is available. Overall, the Ram 1500 Classic is the ultimate pickup in terms of affordability. It’s got toughness and is capable of getting the job done no matter what that may be.
