2019 Ram 1500 Classic: A Legacy Half-Ton Truck
Ram completely redesigned the 1500 truck for 2019, but it’s not the end of an era we thought it was. Ram has now given its legacy truck the name “Classic” and there will be two different body styles of the 2019 Ram 1500 sold. The 2019 Ram 1500 Classic will hit the Hebert’s Town & Country Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram showroom towards the end of the year and we’re happy to see this body stay a little while longer.
“As we launch the all-new 2019 Ram 1500, we didn’t want to walk away from a key part of the light-duty truck market,” Head of Ram Brand Mike Manley said in a statement. “Ram will continue to produce the 1500 Classic targeted at entry and commercial buyers.”
The 2019 Ram 1500 Classic will be available in four grades: Tradesman, Express, Big Horn (Lone Star in Texas) and SSV (Special Services Vehicle). The truck will also have three new optional packages too. These are:
• Chrome Plus
This package is offered on the Tradesman grade and includes chrome bumpers, body-color upper front fascia, 17-inch wheels, remote keyless entry and carpet floor covering.
• Tradesman SXT
This package is also offered on the Tradesman and has a 5-inch radio, chrome bumpers and body-color front fascia. It also features fog lamps, 20-inch chrome wheels and dual exhaust on V-8 models, all of which are new to the Tradesman.
• Express Black Accent Package
All Express interior grades can upgrade to this package, which includes black badging, black headlight bezels and black wheels.
In addition to its four grades and three available packages, the 2019 Ram 1500 Classic comes in three cabs and bed lengths. These are:
• Regular Cab with 8-foot bed or 6-foot, 4-inch bed
• Quad Cab with 6-foot, four-inch bed
• Crew Cab with 5-foot, 7-inch bed or 6-foot, 4-inch bed
With a segment-exclusive multi-link rear coil suspension system, you’ll get a best-in-class ride and handling with the 2019 Ram 1500 Classic. Throw in the RamBox bedside storage, hidden bins and a flat-load floor, you’ll have room for every the smallest thing you’re hauling.
Work can definitely be fun with the 2019 Ram 1500 Classic.
