2019 Ram 1500 vs 2019 Ram 1500 Classic | Springfield MO

For the 2019 model year, RAM has released two versions of its popular Ram 1500 pickup truck. Drivers now have the option of choosing the 2019 RAM 1500 or the 2019 RAM 1500 Classic. However, someone interested in purchasing a RAM 1500 truck may not know the differences between the two models, so here's a quick overview on the differences between them.

All-New Features vs. Classic Value

The biggest and most notable difference between the trucks is the fact that the RAM 1500 is all-new for the 2019 model year, while the 2019 RAM 1500 Classic is a refreshed version of the previous generation. The Classic model offers RAM's signature capability and features at a lower price point, allowing drivers who need a practical truck to get one for great value. Those who want an upgraded truck with all the newest features can opt for the all-new 2019 RAM 1500 instead.


Both the RAM 1500 and the RAM 1500 Classic deliver the same amount of performance on the base engine: 305 horsepower. The all-new RAM 1500 comes with a new eTorque version of the 3.6-liter V6 under the Classic's hood which gets better fuel economy. The 2019 RAM 1500 is rated at 20 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway, while the RAM 1500 Classic drops to 17 mpg in the city with the same highway mileage*. The Classic will also offer an available EcoDiesel engine later this model year.


Both models of the RAM 1500 deliver comfortable and roomy cabins. The all-new RAM 1500's interior comes standard with a six-person cabin in comparison to the Classic's 3-person cabin, and a 12-inch infotainment system touchscreen offers more high-tech goodies for drivers to enjoy. The RAM 1500 Classic doesn't offer as much in the way of cutting-edge tech, but comfort and ergonomics lie at the center of its classic style.
