Ram recently decided to split the ever-popular Ram 1500 truck into two entirely new models. By making this decision, Ram will be able to keep up with the constant advancements in the automotive industry while still keep around everything that Ram fans have loved about the Ram 1500 over the years. We have heard customers question the difference between these vehicles and how they can easily tell these trucks apart. Customers have also been wondering which of these trucks would be a better fit for their specific needs. Tom Ahl Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram is ready to help our customers through the whole car-buying journey, particularly the research phase that should be done before you buy your vehicle. This is why we have done our homework on both the 2019 All-New Ram 1500 and the 2019 Ram 1500 Classic in order to assist you in figuring out which truck model you would rather have.

Ram decided to get rid of the iconic crosshair front grille layout that has been around for years when they reimagined the All-New Ram 1500. This legendary grille design was replaced with six unique grille layouts, allowing customers to pick a grille layout based on which trim level they choose. The All-New Ram 1500 is also lighter, longer, and wider than the Classic version. This size advantage t will allow drivers to enjoy more interior space when they are in the cabin of the All-New Ram 1500. When you take a glance at the All-New Ram 1500, you will see that it is outfitted with striking and smooth body lines that work with the forward-leaning grille to improve this truck's overall aerodynamics. The RamBox Cargo Management System was lifted by an inch and a half for the All-New Ram 1500, while the available 33.3 x 43.4-inch panoramic sunroof will give your cabin quite the luxurious feel. The 2019 All-New Ram 1500 also features a number of exclusive technological advancements such as standard remote keyless entry, which does not come standard for the 2019 Ram 1500 Classic.

The trim levels of these trucks have also been reconfigured over the course of this split. The 2019 Ram 1500 Classic is getting rid of many trim levels and will only have three available cab sizes and bed lengths. Take your pick between the Regular Cab, Quad Cab, and Crew Cab, depending on what you need. The available trim levels include the 2019 Ram 1500 Classic Tradesman, the 2019 Ram 1500 Classic Express, and 2019 Ram 1500 Classic Big Horn/Lone Star. The 2019 All-New Ram 1500 is available for you to buy in six unique trim levels: the 2019 All-New Ram 1500 Tradesman, the 2019 All-New Ram 1500 Big Horn/Lone Star, the 2019 All-New Ram 1500 Laramie, the 2019 All-New Ram 1500 Laramie Longhorn, the 2019 All-New Ram 1500 Rebel, and the 2019 All-New Ram 1500 Limited trim levels.  The 2019 Ram 1500 Classic Quad Cab 4-Wheel Drive Tradesman features a Flex Fuel 3.6L V6 engine behind the grille. This engine can get drivers 305 horsepower at 6,400 RPM, 269 lb.-ft. of torque when you get up to 4,175 RPM, and a combined 19 MPG when it comes to fuel economy. Check out the HEMI 5.7L V8 engine that comes behind the grille of the 2019 All-New Ram 1500. This engine is fully capable of getting 395 horsepower at 5,600 RPM, 410 lb.-ft. of torque at 3,950 RPM, and 17 combined MPG.
