2021 Ram 1500 Classic Review

Why Choose the 2021 Ram 1500 Classic?

The Ram 1500 is rightly famous for delivering a huge amount of trucks at an affordable price. But the 1500 Classic takes this even further by stripping away unneeded extras to concentrate on the core of what makes the 1500 great: excellent specs, high performance, and a wallet-friendly price. You'll still get all the power and capability of its more expensive siblings, but on a budget that's unmatched in the light-duty market.

Common Features

The Classic slims down the 1500's range of engines to two powerful options. The base 3.6L V6 makes a sturdy 305 horsepower and 269lb-ft of torque perfectly pitched for everyday workhorse tasks. But if you're looking for a little more, there's a mighty 5.7L V8 pushing out 395hp and 410lb-ft, taking the Ram 1500 into a different league altogether.

The V6 pairs with an eight-speed automatic transmission and a choice of rear-wheel or all-wheel drive, while the V8 boasts an optimized six-speed transmission and is all-wheel drive only.


The Classic follows the tried and tested Ram truck design, softening a few angles compared to other trucks but still giving a strong and imposing appearance. For 2021, the entry-level trims feature a Regular Cab with two doors and a single bench seat for three. Higher trims upgrade to a four-door Quad Cab format with two rows seating up to six.


In everyday work, the Classic is a truck you can rely on. The standard payload capacity is a healthy 857kg, but it's in towing that the pickup shines. The base V6 model can handle up to 2,164kg in trailer weight, while the V8 pushes capacity up to a mammoth of 7,246kg.


The Classic isn't a truck for people who want all the latest gadgets and gizmos. Nonetheless, there's an infotainment option on higher trims which provides an 8.4" touchscreen, smartphone integration, and inbuilt navigation.


As standard, the 2021 Ram 1500 Classic specs include a generous number of safety features, including trailer brake control, rear camera and rear parking assist, and electronic stability control.
