Ram 1500 Classic Will Return For Another Model Year

2024, Marks The 16th Year In Production For The Fourth-Gen Half-Ton...

The Ram 1500 Classic (DS), a longstanding fixture in the Ram full-size pickup domain, is gearing up for its 16th year in production. Sources from Motor1.com and multiple automotive pricing platforms hint at the arrival of the 2024 model, promising a continuation of its enduring legacy with minimal anticipated changes.

Set to potentially remain the sole avenue into a HEMI®-powered half-ton pickup within the Ram lineup, the 2024 Ram 1500 Classic gains significance in light of the 2025 Ram 1500’s shift toward a modern twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter Hurricane I6 engine.

In recent times, the Ram 1500 Classic underwent a streamlining process, bidding farewell to certain configurations, such as the Regular Cab 6-foot, 4-inch box. The outlook for 2024 suggests a further trimming down, possibly signaling the discontinuation of Regular Cab models altogether. This leaves the four-door Quad Cab and Crew Cab models, potentially marking the end of the 8-foot box in the lineup, with Quad Cab models featuring a 6-foot, 4-inch box and Crew Cab models sporting a 5-foot, 7-inch box.

Performance-wise, the 2023 Ram 1500 Classic showcased the standard 3.6-liter Pentastar V6, boasting an impressive 305 horsepower and 269 lb.-ft. of torque. An optional 5.7-liter HEMI V8 offered 395 horsepower and 410 lb.-ft. of torque, featuring Variable Valve Timing (VVT) and a Multi-Displacement System (MDS) for enhanced fuel efficiency. Both engines were paired with the smooth-shifting 8-speed TorqueFlite automatic transmission.

Anticipated trims for 2024 include the expected return of the entry-level Tradesman and the sporty Warlock. The Tradesman, prioritizing functionality, is set to offer practical features such as 17-inch wheels, a ParkView® Rear Back-Up Camera, and easy-to-maintain vinyl seating. Common options might encompass the HEMI V8 and the Electronics Group, featuring technological upgrades like Dual-Zone Automatic Temperature Control and an 8.4-inch Uconnect 5 touchscreen.

For buyers seeking a well-rounded package, the Warlock emerges as an enticing choice. Available with either the standard Pentastar V6 or the optional HEMI V8, this trim embodies a blend of style and substance. Inside, the Warlock emphasizes crew comfort with a front cloth bench seat, while its exterior boasts Black powder-coated bumpers, bifunctional halogen projector headlamps, rear heavy-duty shock absorbers, and available 20-inch Semi-Gloss Black-painted aluminum wheels.

Stay tuned for forthcoming updates as we delve deeper into the upcoming Ram 1500 Classic’s offerings.

I love my 1500 Classic with the Hemi. Can't beat the combination of power and sound and simplistic design. I would totally order another one if I could.

On the wishful thinking end, any chance the Classic was extended 1 year is because the midsize Ram Rampage is coming early, and will be ready when the Classic ends?

Indeed, the backlog of needed product for all North American brands is staggering. Sad when the old stuff is better than the new or expected stuff. Just saying!
