Every truck driver dreams of picking up a vehicle that can deliver expert handling, adequate storage, and last a lifetime. The 2020 Ram 1500 pickup fits that bill exactly.
Let’s take a closer look.
A COMPETITIVE PICKUP
In 2010, the brand separated from Dodge and formed its own line of pickups and trucks. Ever since, they have been making a name for themselves with their Jeeps and Rams, continuing to improve on their products.
Compared to competitors, the 2020 Ram has a lot to offer…
Hard workers need tough trucks to complete tough jobs. Ram recognizes that hard workers need options that work for them. That’s why the 2020 Ram 1500 comes in 6 top-notch trims:
- Laramie Longhorn
- Big Horn
One of the most notable aspects of this heavy-duty pickup line is its updated appearance…
A NEW LOOK
The company promises that the new 2020 Ram pickup line will get a modern facelift for the new decade. The new design, of course, draws inspiration from the 2019 fifth-generation half-ton Ram 1500 while expanding on this design for improved use and appearance. For starters, the trademark cross-hair grille design gets renewed.
Other bold designs improve not just the exterior’s appearance, but the truck’s overall usability, too…
A BOLD AND USEFUL DESIGN
This boldly designed vehicle sports standard and available features like
- the RamBox Cargo Management System for even more cargo space that’s easily covered,
- a multifunctional tailgate with two 88°-swinging doors for ultimate truck bed access,
- an easy-to-use power-release tailgate assist, and
- powered side running boards for easily entering and exiting the vehicle.
However, it’s not just the exterior that gets a new and improved look…
Stepping inside the interior reveals a host of upgrades. The most noticeable one? A much more spacious cabin, perfect for extra storage or bringing along the family for an off-road adventure. The new design also includes an impressive touchscreen display, with a standard size of 8.4″ and optional 12″ upgrade.
These upgrades are only the tip of the iceberg, though…
Standard and available cabin features also include:
- a digital cluster display with colorful 3D graphics,
- noise-cancellation technology for a quieter ride,
- a Harmon Kardon 900-watt, 19-speaker audio system,
- an activity center that makes connecting with others a breeze, and
- a dual-panoramic sunroof.
Of course, everything is powered by an incredibly strong engine…
Truck lovers will appreciate the upgrade in engine power. The new 2020 starts with the base Ram 1500’s new 3.6L V6 engine with an eTorque mild-hybrid system. It produces 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque. This system offers a big jump in power from the 2019 model, which only generated about 240 horsepower in comparison.
Those eager for an even bigger jump in performance have that option, too…
UPGRADE AS YOU SEE FIT
For a little extra, customers can upgrade to a gas burner and receive an extra 48-volt motor/generator that gets 395 horsepower and 410 pound-feet of torque instead. For Earth-friendlier upgrades, there’s even an eco-diesel option that completely redesigns the 3.0L turbo-diesel V6. This upgrade gives customers 260 horsepower and 480 lb-ft of torque. Overall, the truck should be able to tow 12,000 pounds, making it one of the toughest options currently available.
It only gets better from here, though…
The 2020 Ram is here to deliver with hauling capabilities that outshine previous Ram models. Now, some Rams will hold a 6.4L Hemi V8 capable of producing 410 horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque. This will all be paired with the new TorqueFlite 8-speed auto.
While this output is impressive, those in need of ultimate towing and hauling performance have even more options…
Maximized performance is delivered with a 6.7L Cummins turbo-diesel straight-six upgrade, which cranks out 370 horsepower and 850 lb-ft of torque in its base form. Not enough power? Not a problem. This option’s high output form puts out a colossal 400 horsepower and 1,000 pound-feet of torque.
While this truck is an absolute beast, it’s suprisingly easy to handle…
Reviews across the board are overwhelmingly surprised by how well the new Ram line drives, even with the upgrade in size and stowing power. In fact, many swear it drives as well as any four-door car.
No matter what’s being towed, the suspension will make everything seem like smooth sailing on any road; it’s all thanks to high-powered riding coil springs. Drivers can also upgrade to have extra air springs on all four corners of the truck for extra suspension capabilities.
Of course, this beast of a truck has to be a gas-guzzler, right?…
A BEAST THAT DOESN’T GUZZLE GAS?
Wrong. The 2020 Ram 1500 is rated up to 20 mpg in the city and 26 on the highway, a great fuel economy for a vehicle in this class.
Of course, drivers won’t just be saving money thanks to the fuel economy, either…
FIVE-STAR QUALITY AT A CUT-RATE PRICE
This beast won’t drain the wallet. In fact, MSRP for the 2020 Ram 1500 starts at just $32,145.
Overall, thanks to Ram’s consideration of every need of a truck driver, owners can customize this affordable vehicle with whatever equipment and riding capabilities they need…
EVERYTHING YOU NEED IN A PICKUP?
Ram has taken extra measures to make sure that their loyal customer base can customize their trucks however they see fit. After all, tough workers need tough trucks to keep up with their workloads. The fact that these pickups are also easy to clean and maintain is just a bonus.
Whether customers need to complete tough jobs or enjoy off-road adventures, the Ram’s 2020 upgrades provide it all in one truck. So, fans shouldn’t be fooled by the 2020’s stylish new looks; this line is made for tackling the toughest jobs out there.
