2020 Ram 1500 Overview

Full-size light-duty pickups, like the Ram 1500, are among the most competitive group of vehicles on the new-car market. The 2020 Ram 1500 gets several updates.

Engine choices include a powerful base V6 and two potent V8s. The base 3.6-liter V6 makes 305 horsepower, while the available 5.7-liter Hemi V8 makes 395 hp. No matter the engine selected, power is sent through an 8-speed automatic transmission. Power is sent to the rear wheels or available 4-wheel drive (4WD) with low range.

The diesel engine features a new turbocharger, redesigned cylinder heads, new fuel injectors, and new aluminum-alloy pistons. This is all in pursuit of an engine that will be more efficient and more powerful. This diesel V6 puts out 260 hp and an impressive 480 lb-ft. As of this writing, EPA fuel-economy estimates for the Ram 1500 have not been released.

The Ram 1500 is available in a wide variety of trims, from the worksite-ready Tradesman to the luxurious Laramie and Limited trims. The available Rebel trim boasts an aggressive appearance, while the Longhorn includes western-inspired touches.

The Ram 1500 has one of the most comfortable and tech-laden interiors in the full-size truck segment. It comes standard with the Uconnect touchscreen infotainment system, complete with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Buyers can also select an upgraded Uconnect system with a massive 12-inch vertical touchscreen, much like the center console found in a Tesla Model S. Other available features include leather upholstery, heated and cooled seats, wireless-device charging, and a Harman Kardon stereo system. The Ram 1500 provides a ride like no other truck in the segment, thanks to the class-exclusive link-coil rear suspension and available four-corner air suspension. This system delivers a comfortable ride and can extend the ride height for driving off-road, as well as lower on the highway for improved stability and aerodynamics.

The Ram 1500 is available with a host of advanced safety technologies, including forward-collision warning and avoidance, adaptive cruise control, a 360-degree camera, blind-spot monitoring, front and rear parking sensors, and automatic high beams.

The 2020 Ram 1500 will go on sale in the fourth quarter of 2019.
