The new 2024 Ram 1500 is expected to arrive next year with some revised trim levels and packaging differences. As you probably know, this truck is one of the best in its class, especially if you choose an off-road version like the TRX. Unfortunately, the new truck will only get mid-cycle refreshments. However, the RAM EV version is also on the way, and we are expecting it to debut in the following year.
In case you missed it, the RAM 1500 is a truck that’s available in 14 trim levels. Basically, you can choose from Tradesman, HFE (High Fuel Economy), Lone Star, Big Horn, Rebel, Laramie, Longhorn, Longhorn SouthFork, Limited 1500 (RED), Limited 10th Anniversary Edition, Limited, Back Country, TRX, and TRX Ignition.
2024 Ram 1500 Design
In terms of styling, the 2024 Ram 1500 will not depart too much from its predecessor, at least not the base model. However, thanks to its unique design language, you’ll never mistake this pickup for any other one. Next year, the changes will be visible on the Ram 1500 GT Laramie and Rebel models, which both get a performance hood, a black grille, and some GT decals.
The Ram 1500 Back Country with Big Horn and Lone Star models will also include some changes like a body-color grille surround and 2-tone black paint. Anyway, the Back Country adds skidplates, tow hooks, and all-terrain tires. Lastly, the Ram 1500 Limited 10th Anniversary Edition, which is available with exclusive Blue Shade paint, offers some special badging, and 22-inch polished wheels.
The interior of the 2024 Ram 1500 pickup is one of the best in class. It is modern, spacious, and offers enough room for up to five passengers. While all cab styles are spacious, the Crew Cab is the best option, providing substantially more rear legroom. We recommend stepping up to at least the Big Horn model or above, to get an impressive 12-inch Uconnect 5 touchscreen.
However, if you’re looking for a more unique cabin, the TRX is a model worth considering. This model is embroidered with TRX logos and copperhead orange stitching.
2024 Ram 1500 Engine Specs
Under the hood, the 2024 Ram 1500 will come with no major mechanical changes. The current pickup is using a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 using a 48-volt eTorque electric-assist system. This engine produces 305 horsepower, which is good. You can also get an optional 395-horsepower 5.7-liter V8, which comes without eTorque. The next option is a 3.0-liter turbodiesel V6 that pumps out 260 horsepower and 480 lb-ft of torque.
Moreover, just like before, the TRX off-road model continues to use a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 cranking out 702 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. This one is the quickest, hitting 60 mph in only 4.5 seconds. Anyway, no matter which engine you choose, the maximum payload is 2,300 pounds, while the maximum trailer weight is a substantial 12,750 pounds. We’re also expecting an electric version to show up in the next year.
2024 Ram 1500 Price, Release Date
The 2024 Ram 1500 in basic form starts at $35,900, while HFE is at ($37,537), the Big Horn/Lone Star ($40,955), and the Rebel at ($50,395). Choosing the standard V8 engine means you must step up to a Laramie or a Limited Longhorn, which are priced at $49,250 and $56,980, respectively.
The new Ram 1500 SouthFork replaced the popular Longhorn 10th Anniversary, and it cost $61,620. The priciest is the TRX model, starting at $77,880, while the Ignition Edition is $99,070. As you may notice, the pricing of the common models is in line with rivals such as the Chevy Silverado, Ford F-150, and GMC Sierra. According to many reports, the new truck will make its debut at some point next year.
