Ram 1500 Classic

When Ram Truck released the new generation of the Ram 1500 light duty pickup truck as an adventure and lifestyle vehicle, pickup truck owners rejoiced and lamented all at once. There were the consumers excited to take their new Ram 1500 off-road and on their next road trip. Other consumers didn’t want to drive around a 2500 or 3500 HD pickup truck to get difficult jobs done. So, Ram Truck did the only logical thing and kept a version of the old generation still around as the Ram 1500 Classic to offer the same ol’ work truck the Ram 1500 name was known for. Still alive, check out the specs for the 2024 Ram 1500 Classic.
