2019 RAM 1500 Classic Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

What Is the 2019 Ram 1500 Classic?

The 2019 Ram 1500 Classic is a continuation of the brand's previous-generation light-duty pickup truck. (The redesigned 2019 Ram 1500 is covered separately in the Cars.com Research section.) Available in regular-cab, Quad Cab and crew-cab form, the 1500 Classic also offers three bed lengths. Power comes from a standard 305-horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6 or an optional 395-hp, 5.7-liter V-8. Both engines work with an eight-speed automatic transmission, and rear- and four-wheel-drive versions are offered. Competitors include the Chevrolet Silverado 1500, Ford F-150 and Toyota Tundra.   

What's New on the 2019 Ram 1500 Classic?

Three trim levels — Tradesman, Express and Big Horn/Lone Star — are offered, and the 1500 Classic also has three new appearance packages.

What Features in the 2019 Ram 1500 Classic Are Most Important?

The Ram's use of a coil-spring rear suspension gives the 1500 Classic better ride quality than the average full-size pickup truck, and the RamBox storage bins are a useful feature.

Should I Buy the 2019 Ram 1500 Classic?

The redesigned Ram 1500 offers a wider range of trim levels, some of which are luxurious, but if value is key, the 1500 Classic might be a better choice.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
