Yesterday, we showed you that the Build & Price configurator for the 2019 Ram 1500 Classic is up and running. Today, we are happy to tell you that the 2019 Ram 1500 Classic models are starting to appear in dealerships right now.
Those who have been up in air about the all-new 2019 Ram 1500’s styling, should be happy about the last generation Ram 1500 being available for another model year. A lot of people who were up in the air about the death of the crosshair grille, will be happy to hear that the crosshair grille will be alive on at least one Ram product for the 2019 model year and that is the Classic (especially since the 2019 ProMaster and ProMaster City have ditched the crosshairs).
Those looking for a luxury version of the 2019 Ram 1500 Classic though, are out of luck. The Ram 1500 Classic is only available in four trim levels, Tradesman, Express, Big Horn/Lone Star and SSV (Special Services Vehicle), the Ram 1500 Classic benefits from content specifically designed to match its capability and style. The Ram 1500 Classic also benefits from three new packages:
- Chrome Plus is offered on the Tradesman trim that offers bundled value content, which includes chrome bumpers, body-color upper front fascia, 17-inch wheels, remote keyless entry and carpet floor covering
- Tradesman SXT is offered on the Tradesman trim that includes chrome bumpers, body-color front fascia, 5-inch radio, fog lamps (new to Tradesman), dual exhaust on V-8 models (new to Tradesman) and 20-inch chrome wheels (new to Tradesman)
- Express Black Accent Package is offered on all Express trim exterior colors, which includes Black wheels, Black headlight bezels and Black badging
This is the first time that Americans will get a SXT package on the Ram 1500 Tradesman. However, Canadians have been able to get the package for the past several years.
The 2019 Ram 1500 Classic is available in three cabs and three bed lengths: Regular Cab with 8-ft. bed or 6-ft., 4-in. bed, Quad Cab with 6-ft., 4-in. bed, Crew Cab short bed (5-ft., 7-in.) or Crew Cab with optional 6-ft., 4-in. bed. So for those looking for a 2019 regular cab Ram 1500 model, you will have to go to a Classic model for at least now.
Available in 4×2 or 4×4, other powertrain offerings include 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 or the optional 5.7-liter HEMI® V-8. The optional 3.0-liter V-6 EcoDiesel will be available at a later date.
2019 Ram 1500 Classic models are currently available on lots in both the U.S. and Canada.
