For the 2019 and 2020 model years, the previous-generation Ram 1500 continues to be sold under the name “Ram 1500 Classic” alongside the redesigned Ram 1500.
This is the most comfortable-riding full-sized pickup on the market, yet the Ram 1500 Classic is also plenty capable of grunt work.
Its coil-spring rear suspension helps cushion the ride, and the spacious cab is luxury-car quiet.
Our Big Horn Crew Cab, with its smooth 5.7-liter V8, averaged 15 mpg.
The base 3.6-liter V6 is no weakling, but it tows less.
The torquey 3.0-liter diesel V6 version is expensive but delivers effortless thrust and returns a class-leading 20 mpg overall.
Rear-seat room is generous, and the Uconnect 8.4-inch touch-screen infotainment system is easy to use.
