Configuring Your Truck
One way that you may be able to pick between the Ram 1500 vs. Ram 1500 Classic is by figuring out how you want to build your cabin in terms of cabin and bed size.
The 2019 Ram 1500 has a few ways in which you can configure the truck. You can choose between a Quad Cab or Crew Cab, which provide two different bed sizes. With the Quad Cab, the Ram 1500 will come with a 6-foot, 4-inch box; the Crew Cab either comes with that same bed or a 5-foot, 7-inch box.
The 2019 Ram 1500 Classic can also be shaped with both of those cabins and box sizes. However, it also has an additional cabin available—the Regular Cab. This can be matched with the 6-foot, 4-inch bed or a larger 8-foot bed. This configuration is ideal if you’re using your truck for commercial use, since you would benefit from more cargo space in the bed rather than passenger space in the cab.
Powerful Capabilities with Both Models
With both trucks, you’ll get the strength needed to tow and haul whatever you need to bring along for the ride. They both come standard with a 3.6L Pentastar® V6 engine that delivers 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque.

The Ram 1500 Classic will let you carry all the equipment and supplies you need for a hard day’s work with a payload capacity of 1,920 pounds and a maximum towing capacity of 10,710 pounds.
