2019 RAM: Two Modern Classics

The 2019 RAM 1500 is an impressive pickup, and we'll take a look at why. But what's even more impressive is that with the 2019 RAM Classic, RAM has managed to have two world-class pickups in the same class.

The 2019 RAM 1500, Motor Trend's Truck of the Year, brings new technologies, the most luxurious cabin in its class, and even more power and capability. Meanwhile, the RAM Classic still brings RAM's signature technologies like its coil spring suspension, which makes for a supremely comfortable ride. It's also available in exclusive colors, which Iowa buyers will only find this year on the RAM Classic. Once they're gone, they're gone for good.

One major change for the all-new-2019 RAM 1500 is that its frame has been lightened and strengthened, increasing towing capacity and improving stability. But let's not forget that the just last year, the RAM Classic was one of the leading pickup trucks in terms of not only power, but more importantly owner satisfaction.

However, the RAM Classic isn't exactly the same as the 2018 RAM 1500. One big difference is the level of choice that Iowa buyers will have. The RAM Classic has been released with limited trim and engine options, compared to the 2019 RAM 1500 which comes in a wide range of trims and upwards of 5 engine options. While the RAM Classic's trim levels have proven to be popular, and you can still equip it with a HEMI V8, those looking for ultimate power or to excel off-road will look to the 2019 model. It's also available with a great deal more luxury features than the RAM Classic, which could convince some Iowa buyers to jump for the new model.

The Classic Meets the Future

There's no doubt that the RAM Classic is an attractive package. With unique paintjobs, desirable features, reasonable options, and a great price tag, the RAM Classic is likely to satisfy many Iowa buyers in search of a reliable pickup truck. However, for Iowa residents seeking the absolute latest in technology, the limits of power in the class, and a pickup designed for the future, the 2019 RAM 1500 is an ideal choice. The fact that both full-size pickups have so much to offer is a testament to RAM's commitment to innovation and quality, and provides a unique opportunity to Iowa shoppers.
