The RAM 1500 Classic returns for the 2023 model year as a carryover. This hardworking truck is a throwback to classic RAM styling popular with buyers. It boasts a smaller price tag and fewer tech-forward features than the newer RAM 1500 which is also being sold.
On the inside, the truck has enough modern features and creature comforts to make sense today but is sparse by newer standards. It comes with six speakers, an 8.4-inch touchscreen, AM/FM/ SiriusXM satellite radio, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, one power outlet, and a 4G Wi-Fi hotspot for wireless internet access.
The RAM 1500 Classic is available in several bed and cab combinations, including a regular cab which seats three, a crew cab, and a quad cab which can pair with 5.6, 6.3, and 8-foot bed options.
Under the hood, the 2023 RAM 1500 Classic should come with your choice of engine, a 3.6L V-6 with an output of 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque or a 5.7L V-8 which produces 395hp and 410 lb-ft of torque. Both are paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
Payload and towing capacity should remain the same as the current RAM 1500 Classic on sale. The max payload is 1,810, and the maximum tow weight is 10,620 pounds when properly equipped.
