EXTERIOR

The Ram 1500 Classic exterior is a handsome combination of iconic and stylish design touches. Highlights include signature crosshair grilles with eye‑catching flourishes like the blacked‑out grille on the Express Blackout. As well, new "Classic" badging is featured on the fenders of all models.
The 2020 Classic lineup offers an impressive choice of models as well as available colour and wheel looks.

Air Management

The Classic's aerodynamic design helps ensure a quieter cabin and greater fuel efficiency. This is achieved through a combination of standard and available features including refined windshield shapes, aero-shaped mirrors, a parabolic front end, aerodynamic wheel-to-wheel side steps and the Active Air™ grille shutters.

Light the Bed

Available LED box lighting takes the guesswork out of loading and unloading at night. Augmenting the centre high mount stop lamp, the LED lights illuminate the cargo bed, which is especially helpful when using a tonneau cover. One press of the handy switch in the bed will keep the lighting on for up to 10 minutes.



INTERIOR

And power windows and locks offer comfort and security with just the push of a button.

The armrest also opens up, providing a handy place to keep items like a small notebook, loose change or keys for work.

Stow It, Store It, Lock It

It's more than just a toolbox on wheels. The available Class-Exclusive RamBox® Cargo Management is a lit, secure, weatherproof storage solution built into the side rails of the Ram 1500 Classic truck bed. Ideal for power tools and other valuable work items, sure, but also perfect for camping gear, sporting equipment and other items.

3.6L Pentastar VVT V6

The 3.6L Pentastar VVT V6 is Canada's Best-Selling Engine. In the Ram 1500 Classic, it delivers 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque for dependable performance and proven reliability. Taking advantage of advanced technology like Variable Valve Timing (VVT), efficiency is maximized to give you impressive fuel economy as efficient as 9.6 L/100 km (29 mpg) highway.

5.7L HEMI VVT V8

The iconic 5.7L HEMI V8 is Canada's Best-Selling V8 engine based on the past 6 years of registration. In the Ram 1500 Classic, it produces a powerful 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque, and is no slouch when it comes to fuel saving. Its FuelSaver Multi-Displacement System (MDS) technology deactivates 4 cylinders while cruising and idling - instantly reverting back to 8 cylinders when needed. Variable Valve Timing (VVT) allows for optimal engine breathing throughout a wide rpm range - for example, increasing torque for towing and hauling when required.



TECHNOLOGY

Inside and out, the Ram 1500 Classic features standard and available systems that are technologically advanced and designed to enhance your safety, convenience, comfort and entertainment.
You can park easier, take advantage of hands-free communication and voice commands, and customize your vehicle-data display, all with simple and intuitive technology features for truly innovative control.

The Uconnect 4C multimedia centre with 8.4‑inch touchscreen features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto™, providing safe, hands‑free access to your smartphone and many of its features. Listen to music, make calls, send and receive messages, or use your favourite apps, all while keeping your focus on the road.

TOWING AND PAYLOAD

When it comes to exceptional towing and hauling, the Ram 1500 Classic is ready to deliver.  In fact, it can tow up to 10,710 lb (4,858 kg) and haul a payload of up to 1,920 lb (871 kg).

This impressive capability is supported by the standard 4‑ and 7‑pin wiring harness and available integrated Class IV hitch receiver and Trailer Brake Control System.

Class-Leading Suspension System

Leave the competition's leaf spring technology where it belongs: in the rearview mirror. Standard on all Ram 1500 Classic models is the Class‑Exclusive multilink coil spring rear suspension, which delivers lateral stiffness and vehicle control others just can't match. In fact, the ride quality is so strong, durable and comfortable, it's the preferred spring configuration for rail cars.

Four-Wheel-Drive Technology

The Ram 1500 Classic lineup offers 2 shift‑on‑the‑fly, part‑time four‑wheel‑drive settings.  Both are engineered to get you where you want to go.
  • The 4‑HI setting locks both drive shafts for extra grip and pulling power on slippery, wet and loose terrain.
  • The 4‑LO setting has a 2.64:1 gear reduction ratio for increased grip and power to climb over difficult obstacles.
Both systems also  disengage the front drive axle when the 4x4 system is not in use, helping to improve fuel efficiency.



SAFETY

Advanced technologies designed to protect you are focused on operating ease and occupant comfort. Ram 1500 Classic keeps you and yours safe and secure while delivering the highest degree of performance, convenience and capability.

ANTILOCK BRAKE SYSTEM (ABS)

This four-channel system monitors each wheel's speed and allows backup braking should one of the two braking circuits be compromised.

TRACTION CONTROL

Integrated with the ABS, Traction Control regulates wheelspin at all speeds. Impending wheel-slip during acceleration results in throttle modifications to reduce torque; in extreme situations it will selectively apply brakes to maintain control. It can be turned off with a console-mounted button.

READY ALERT BRAKING

The system senses when the driver's foot is lifted from the accelerator, and then instantly applies a slight brake force to ensure brake pads and discs are correctly lined up should a sudden stop be necessary.

TRAILER SWAY CONTROL

This system detects trailer sway and will automatically compensate for it by applying selective brake pressure on the tow vehicle's opposite side to counteract and reduce the sway.

ELECTRONIC ROLL MITIGATION (ERM)

Operational only during a severe or an evasive driving manoeuvre, this system anticipates wheel lift and applies the appropriate brake (or reduces engine power) to reduce lift.

ELECTRONIC BRAKE-FORCE DISTRIBUTION

This system regulates braking pressure from front to rear to minimize stopping distances for ideal control.

RAIN BRAKE SUPPORT

When the windshield wipers are activated, this standard system pulses the brake pads closer to the spinning rotors, helping to keep the rotors and pads dry to help enable the shortest stopping distance.

HILL START ASSIST

On hills or inclines, the vehicle is held stationary for two seconds after the brakes have been released to help prevent rollback.
