2021 Ram 1500 Classic - Now in Medicine Hat
If you're looking for a powerful truck that doesn't waste your hard-earned money on gizmos and gimmicks, then the Ram 1500 Classic is the pickup you need. The latest 2021 release is now available at our Medicine Hat dealership, and here are the highlights of this unique half-ton truck.
What's New for 2021
For most of the 1500 Classic range, there are no changes to the winning formula of the 2020 model. However, there's a new optional All-Terrain package which upgrades the Warlock trim's off-road abilities with heavy-duty rear shocks, better approach and departure angles, and a 1" suspension lift.
As the name suggests, this Ram is a classic of the pickup design format, with a rugged profile and a domineering front grille. The overall effect is a tough-looking, no-nonsense truck that means business.
There's a choice of two cab configurations. The entry-level trim offers a two-door Regular Cab with a single bench seat for three people. Other trims provide a comfortable and convenient Quad Cab, with four doors, two rows, and seating space for up to six.
The Ram 1500 Classic comes with two main powertrain choices. As standard, a 3.6L V6 engine supplies 305 horsepower and 269lb-ft of torque, paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission to power either rear-wheel or all-wheel drive. Move up to the 5.7L V8 engine and the output rises to 395hp and 410lb-ft. These powerful engines make the Classic capable workhorse, with both versions boasting a payload capacity of 857kg. However, the towing capability is even more impressive. The smaller engine can haul up to 2,164kg behind the truck, while the more powerful option boosts this to an impressive 7,246kg.
One of the main selling points of the Classic is its straightforward approach, and in the lower trims there's very little in the way of infotainment features. However, trade up to a higher model and there's a generous 8.4" touchscreen powered by Uconnect software, offering full smartphone integration and in-built navigation.
The Classic offers a rugged selection of safety features, with highlights including electronic stability control, a rear camera, trailer brake control, and a rear parking assist system.
