When you want a powerful, reliable, and affordable full-size pickup, then a Ram truck is the way to go; choosing the right one, however, is not always easy. A little research can make your life a lot easier because the right Ram truck for you will really depend on exactly what you are looking for and need in a pickup. Take the 2020 Ram 1500 Classic for example, which offers you excellent light-duty functionality and performance at a very reasonable price.
With the Ram 1500 Classic, you can choose between two different engines so that you can get exactly the level of power that you need. While the standard Ram 1500 offers more options, if you do not need them, then the Classic is a great way to go. All of this incredible power gives you more than 10,000 lbs of maximum towing potential when properly configured. That means you can get a tremendous amount of work done with this pickup, or configure it for optimal payload and pile as much as you want into the bed of this beauty.
One of the biggest reasons to choose the Ram 1500 Classic is if you want a cab with two doors – the standard 2020 Ram 1500 only has four-door cabs available. With the 2020 Ram 1500 Classic, however, you can choose a quad cab or a crew cab with four doors on it, or pick a model with a regular cab that has two doors. Larger crew cabs are great, but not for everyone – and the freedom to get the configuration that works best for you is hard to beat. Come visit us at Orange Coast CDJRF to see the 2020 Ram 1500 Classic for yourself, and we will help you find the perfect truck with everything you need.
If you look at the current lineup of Ram trucks, you will pretty quickly notice that there is one called the Ram 1500, as well as the 2020 Ram 1500 Classic. Your first reaction to that is to probably wonder what “Classic” means and that is a reasonable response. In this instance, it refers to the generation of the truck.
The fifth generation of the Ram 1500 truck was introduced for the model year 2019. Rather than simply offer an all-new option and nothing else, however, production continued on the previous generation of the Ram 1500, and it was given the name “Classic.” So, if you look at a 2020 Ram 1500, then you are looking at a fifth-generation model, while the 2020 Ram 1500 Classic is a new, fourth-generation model.
There are some significant differences between the standard Ram 1500 and the Ram 1500 Classic, including a number of features in the fifth-generation model not available on the Classic. One thing the 2020 Ram 1500 Classic offers that you cannot get on the newer generation models, however, is the option for a regular cab with two doors. All fifth-generation Ram 1500s have larger cabs with four doors, but if you want something with a smaller cab and a large box to go with it, then the Ram 1500 Classic is the way to go.
Two engines are available for the 2020 Ram 1500 Classic, giving you the perfect choice between two fantastic amounts of power. Some other trucks have a lot of options, which frequently means that you are stuck with a starting engine that is underwhelming and have to pay more for something decent. With this pickup, however, you get great power from the very start and can upgrade if you need even better performance.
The standard engine in the 2020 Ram 1500 Classic is a 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine that delivers up to 305 hp and up to 269 lb-ft of torque. This is a great engine that gets an estimated 17 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway when properly equipped. If you want more power, then there is an available 5.7L HEMI V8 engine that offers up to 395 hp and up to 410 lb-ft of torque for truly incredible performance. This engine gets an estimated 15 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway, which is good, but the standard engine is a better choice if gas mileage is a major concern for you.
With the HEMI engine and the proper configuration, you get up to 10,680 lbs of towing capacity. You can also configure the 2020 Ram 1500 Classic to get up to 1,920 lbs of payload capacity if you are interested in piling as much weight as possible onto this truck. Overall, it is a fantastic pickup that gives you great power and has a lot of muscle for getting work done.
The “Ram” name has become synonymous with sophistication and comfort, and when you look inside the 2020 Ram 1500 Classic, it is easy to see why. Since this is a fourth-generation model, it does not have every luxury that the fifth-generation Ram trucks offer, but it certainly strives to impress. And it is clear to see why Ram’s competitors continue to work, in vain, to catch up with everything offered inside the amazing Ram trucks.
In the 2020 Ram 1500 Classic there is an available 8-inch touchscreen display on the Infotainment center, which looks gorgeous and has support for both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
