Technology Features Comparison

The Ram 1500 delivers great entertainment, connectivity, and practicality thanks to its advanced technology offerings. This Ram pickup truck comes standard with a 5-inch touchscreen, 3.5-inch in-cluster display, a six-speaker audio system, and hands-free communication. However, the higher trims upgrade the technology offerings to include an 8.4-inch or 12-inch touchscreen, 7-inch customizable in-cluster display, premium audio systems, SiriusXM radio, and much more.

Compared to the Ram 1500, the Ram 1500 Classic continues to include the same standard technology options, but it gets hands-free communication a trim up from the base. Opting for the top Warlock trim level is the only way to get the 7-inch customizable in-cluster display, which provides access to vital vehicle information.
