2022 Ram 1500 (DT) vs 2022 Ram 1500 (DS)

At Renfrew Chrysler, we're proud to offer a wide inventory of Ram trucks to our customers in Renfrew, Ontario. Among our collection of Ram pickups are two of the most popular light-duty full-size trucks, the Ram 1500 DT and the Ram 1500 DS. You may also know them as the Ram 1500 and the Ram 1500 Classic. In 2019, Ram introduced the Ram DT as the new Ram 1500 with a new body style. Rather than discontinuing the old Ram, the Ram DS is now called the Ram Classic, and it has the iconic old body style. But the differences between these two capable pickups are more than just aesthetics and exterior body styles.
