The introduction of the 2019 RAM 1500 was a huge step forward for the full-size pickup truck, representing the most technologically-advanced and luxurious truck ever released. However, many of our Greenville, SC customers are just as excited about the RAM 1500 Classic. The RAM 1500 Classic is a special edition of the previous generation RAM, giving Greer buyers the chance to own a comfortable, powerful pickup truck for less. Many of our Greenville customers have asked us to compare the RAM 1500 Classic vs the new RAM 1500, so they can understand the differences.

And at Benson CDJ, we also have a very large selection of the limited-edition RAM 1500 Classic. Designed specifically for those who want an excellent truck without having to buy the more expensive redesigned model, we offer a wide range of RAM 1500 Classic models outfitted with the features that working Greer residents want most from their pickup truck, whether it be for work or daily driving. And, of course, we'll also be taking a look at the revolutionary new RAM 1500, which has won multiple awards and set a new standard for its class.

RAM 1500 - Two Trucks, Same Legacy

The all-new RAM 1500 is a truly impressive pickup, winning Motor Trend's Truck of the Year back to back. It brings new technologies, the most luxurious cabin in its class, and even more power and capability. It also has best-in-class V8 towing, and an all-new EcoDiesel engine for 2020. Meanwhile, the RAM Classic still has the signature technologies that laid the foundation for RAM's current success, like its coil spring rear suspension, HEMI V8, and intelligent cargo management. It's also available in exclusive colors, which South Carolina buyers will only find on the 2019 RAM Classic. Once they're gone, they're gone for good, so make sure to take note of our current inventory above.

Comparing the RAM 1500 Classic vs all-new RAM 1500, there are some significant changes. However, it's also clear that they share the same DNA. One major change for the all-new RAM 1500 is that its frame has been lightened and strengthened, increasing towing capacity and improving stability. It has also improved the comfort of the RAM 1500's ride. That's an impressive feat, as the previous-generation RAM was already the most comfortable ride and highest in owner satisfaction.

And although the RAM 1500 Classic is based on the previous model, it isn't an exact copy. One big difference is the level of choice that Greer, SC buyers will have. The RAM 1500 Classic has limited trim level and engine options compared to the new RAM 1500, which comes in a wide range of trims and offers more engine options. The RAM Classic's trim choices have long been popular choices, and give Greenville buyers access to RAM's legendary comfort and HEMI V8. However, if you want the latest in technology and off-road capability, the all-new RAM 1500's greater trim selection will be a winner. It's also available with a great deal more luxury features than the RAM 1500 Classic, which could convince some South Carolina buyers to choose the all-new RAM.
