Expert Rating

Not Available

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

Buying Tips

What you must know before buying the RAM 1500 Classic

John Diether
Automotive Editor - January 10, 2021
  • 2021 RAM 1500 Classic arriving; 2020s almost gone
  • Lease: Special offers on pause
  • Rebates: Up to $3,750 off 2020s; $3,500 off 2021s
  • Finance: From 0% APR for 48 months + $1,750 bonus

2021s are here:

The carryover 2021 1500 Classic has started flowing into dealers nationwide. The 2020 1500 Classic remains on sale in limited numbers. We expect it to sell out by month's end.

Factory incentives are virtually the same on both model years. You can usually count on some level of dealer discounting as well. The Classic is a continuation of the previous-generation 1500, which plenty of buyers apparently still prefer.

Current factory offers will remain in effect through February 1, 2021. Lease promotions listed here are available on a national basis, while rebates and APR offers can vary by region. The examples shown here are for California.

Lease: Special offers on pause

The 2020 RAM 1500 Classic is often an excellent lease value, but there are no promotional leases this month. We expect offers on the 2021s to start within the next two months. For now, see your dealer for a lease quote.

Rebates: Up to $3,750 off 2020s; $3,500 off 2021s

The 2020 RAM 1500 Classic Regular Cab comes with a $2,000 factory rebate this month. The amount on the Quad and Crew is $3,000. In addition, buyers who finance through RAM at non-promotional rates will receive a $750 finance bonus. These will probably be the final cash offers of the model year.

As for the incoming 2021 1500 Classic, the Quad and Crew come with a $2,750 rebate, and amount on the Regular Cab remains at $2,000. The $750 finance bonus is available as well.

Finance: From 0% APR for 48 months + $1,750 bonus

Instead of the standard rebate, RAM now offers 0% financing for 48 months on both the 2020 and 2021 1500 Classic, plus $1,750 bonus cash on all configurations. Longer loan terms are available at incrementally higher rates.
