2020 Ram 1500

The 2020 Ram 1500 is the right full-size truck for drivers who want to maximize both rugged capabilities and plush interior comfort.

What’s new for the 2020 Ram 1500?

This year, the Ram 1500 is rolling out the big guns with the return of a more-powerful 3.0-liter EcoDiesel engine. With an increased output of 260 horsepower and 480 pound-feet torque, this diesel engine option rivals the Ram’s V8 for towing prowess. This new diesel gives you access more torque at lower rpm, which especially comes in handy as you tow heavy loads. This year, the diesel engine is also available for the Ram’s off-road-ready Rebel model.

Why choose the 2020 Ram 1500?

This full-size truck is the total package. It’s strong, with plenty of engine options to suit your unique needs. The Ram 1500 can tow up to 12,750 pounds and haul up to 2,300 pounds, making it an excellent option for anyone in need of truck-style muscle. But the Ram 1500 puts an emphasis on refinement, with an exclusive coil-spring rear suspension that delivers best-in-class ride comfort. And the cabin is home to high-end materials, making you feel like you’re towing heavy loads from a luxury vehicle.

What are the 2020 Ram 1500 engine options?

Each of these full-size trucks comes standard with the 3.6-liter V6, an engine that makes 305 horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque. All but the HFE trim can be upgraded with the 5.7-liter V8 engine, a beast that generates 395 horses and 410 pound-feet of torque to help you move max loads. And you can also add the aforementioned 3.0-liter EcoDiesel engine to balance hefty performance with modern fuel economy. It’s available for every trim model.

Which 2020 Ram 1500 trim model is right for me?

With seven trim models out there – the Tradesman, HFE, Big Horn, Rebel, Laramie, Longhorn, and Limited – there’s a Ram 1500 for every kind of driver. The Tradesman is a sturdy work truck with a wallet-friendly price tag. The HFE is similarly equipped, but it gives you greater fuel economy from the base V6 engine. Upgrade to the Big Horn for extra utility features, including towing mirrors, a spray-in bedliner, and trailer brake control. The off-road-ready Rebel has everything you need for a rugged ride, from all-terrain tires to fortified shocks and suspension gear.

The Laramie and up are truly luxurious. The Laramie’s leather upholstery and heated-and-ventilated front seats make for an upscale cruise. With the Longhorn, there’s even more style, with 20-inch wheels, chrome side steps, and upgraded leather upholstery. The top-of-the-line Limited is somehow even more impressive, giving you premium-leather front bucket seats, chrome exterior trim, and power-retracting side steps.
