2024 Ram 1500 Classic: A Timeless Journey

June 12,2024

The 2024 Ram 1500 Classic is a testament to enduring value in the pickup world. Initially, it was the sole 1500 offering under the Ram brand until a new generation debuted in 2019. Rather than phasing out the older model, Ram continued its production alongside the newer version, branding it as the “Classic.”

The Classic is powered by a 3.6L V6 or a 5.7L V8 engine. Unlike its newer counterpart, these engines do not feature the eTorque mild hybrid system introduced in 2019. Despite its age, the Classic remains a reliable choice for many.

However, change is on the horizon. With the introduction of another new Ram model for 2025—featuring the “Hurricane” 3.0L turbocharged inline-six—the Classic is nearing the end of its journey. The latest iteration phases out the 5.7L HEMI V8, marking a significant evolution after 15 years.Ram has confirmed that the Classic will continue production for the U.S. and other markets until the end of 2024, under a contract with the United Auto Workers. Manufacturing will persist in Warren, Michigan, through next year, but it’s clear that the Classic’s days are numbered.  Experience the 2024 Ram 1500 Classic before it drives off into history.
