The 2023 Ram 1500 Classic is now available to test-drive, purchase and lease at Melloy Ram, and we’re offering new specilas to Las Cruces residents and businesses that make it even more affordable. One of the most common questions we get about the Ram 1500 is what is the Classic and how is it different than the standard model. The Ram 1500 Classis is one of the most interesting pickup trucks on the market. For the 2019 model year, Ram introduced an all-new and fifth-generation Ram 1500 platform designed to better compete with the likes of Ford and GM in regard to payload and towing capabilities while still delivering the best-in-class ride comfort the brand is known for. But the previous-generation platform was still quite popular, and the brand had considering a midsize pickup. What it did instead was maintain that older generation as the Ram 1500 Classic, which is a more affordable option in line with many midsize pickups on the market and also gives customers options like a traditional two-door cab.
