2023 Ram 1500 vs. 2023 Ram 1500 Classic

2023 Ram 1500 vs. 2023 Ram 1500 Classic in Scarborough, ON

While exploring our new inventory at Roadsport Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, you will find the 2023 Ram 1500 and 2023 Ram 1500 Classic, two excellent Ram pickup trucks from the light-duty segment. These models offer incredible performance and loads of features, so visit our showroom to explore both in more depth. We are confident that we can match you with the perfect Ram pickup truck that will meet your requirements and budget.


Interior Features Comparison

Depending on your needs, you can configure the interior of the 2023 Ram 1500 to suit your specific application. This Ram pickup truck comes with standard heavy-duty vinyl upholstery to withstand wear and tear, while higher trims benefit from having cloth or premium leather upholstery to enhance comfort. Also, higher trims can have an array of luxurious offerings and the latest technology, providing you with the best driving experience inside a light-duty Ram pickup truck.

In comparison, most Ram 1500 Classic trims only feature heavy-duty vinyl upholstery and basic features that are sufficient for most needs. However, higher trims only get the option for cloth upholstery but not leather, and you won't find the same luxury as the Ram 1500.

Towing Capacity Comparison 

The Ram 1500 with the standard 3.6-litre Pentastar V6 engine can tow upwards of 7,710 pounds, sufficient for various light-duty towing tasks and applications. However, upgrading to the 5.7-litre HEMI V8 engine allows the Ram 1500 to achieve its maximum towing potential of 12,750 pounds. With the optional 3.0-litre EcoDiesel V6 engine, this Ram tows a maximum of 12,560 pounds.

Towing with the Ram 1500 Classic is adequate but not as capable as the Ram 1500. With the optional 5.7-litre HEMI V8 engine properly equipped, the 2023 Ram 1500 Classic can tow a maximum of 10,660 pounds. Although it's less than the maximum towing capacity of the Ram 1500, the Ram 1500 Classic comes at a budget-friendly price tag, making it great value for its capability.
