While the regular RAM 1500 offers a ton of different trim levels and configurations to suit the needs of all kinds of drivers, the 2023 RAM 1500 Classic strips most of that away to offer just what most truck drivers need in the form of a work truck. It is the most affordable truck in its class, focused on delivering dependable features and impressive capability. If you’re looking for this more simplistic version of the full-size, light-duty pickup truck here in Topeka, Kansas, be sure to check out our online inventory.
The RAM 1500 Classic comes standard with a 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine capable of generating 305 horsepower alongside 269 pound-feet of torque while achieving 17/25 miles per gallon through the city and highway respectively. Those hungry for more power can opt for the available 5.7L HEMI V8, which boosts power to 395 hp and 410 lb-ft. of torque. When equipped with the larger engine, the Classic can tow up to 10,620 pounds in addition to hauling 1,810 lbs. of payload.
As we mentioned, the RAM 1500 Classic is much more stripped down than the regular 1500. It is only available in two trim levels: the Tradesman and the Warlock. The Tradesman is available with either a 4x2 or 4x4 drivetrain and in one of these four configurations: Crew Cab with a 5’7” Box, Crew Cab with a 6’4” Box, Quad Cab with a 6’4” Box and Regular Cab with an 8’ Box. The Warlock is also available with either 4x2 or 4x4, but only in the Crew Cab with a 5’7” Box or Quad Cab with a 6’4” Box configurations.
Although it won’t offer the cutting edge technologies that you might find in the regular RAM 1500, the 1500 Classic is still outfitted with plenty of great features and tech. You can opt for things like the 7” Digital Cluster Display, the 8.4” Uconnect 4C NAV infotainment system, Keyless Enter ‘n Go, Hands-Free Calling, SiriusXM Guardian, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning Plus and much more.
