2020 should be the year of the pickup truck. It seems like this year, the power, performance, capability, and technology of pickups have been turned up a notch. One truck that looks to excel this year, in particular, is the 2020 Ram 1500. It has some of the most in-demand technology on the market while competing with the best of them in regards to power and performance. Let’s take a look under the hood of this award-winning truck and see what makes it such a great buy.
The Ram 1500 Gives You Lots of Options
If there’s one thing people will agree on, it’s that the 2020 Ram 1500 is full of choices for you to make. First off, there are six different trim levels to choose from. Each comes with its own visual style and slew of incredible features. Available trims include the Tradesman, Bighorn, Laramie, Rebel, Laramie Longhorn, and Limited. Each Ram trim level features a distinctly unique grille design.
In addition to the choice of trim level, you’ll also have your choice of engine configuration in many cases. There are several different powerful engines to choose from on the 2020 Ram 1500. In total, there are three different engines to choose from. The standard engine is a V-6 with an output of 305 horsepower. Other options include a V-8 offering 395 horsepower and a V-6 diesel option for maximum power. In addition to the broad range of trim and engine selections, you’ll also have your choice of cab style, bed size, and drivetrain.
Unmatched Performance Features
When comparing pickup trucks, it’s hard to look past towing capabilities, as that’s one of the main selling points of a truck. The 2020 Ram 1500, when properly equipped, is an absolute monster in the performance department. It can tow up to 12,750 pounds. In addition to the impressive towing capacity, the max payload of 1,940 pounds is no joke either. Regardless of what the road throws at you, you can count on the Ram 1500 to help deliver a smooth ride with features such as air shocks and an auto-leveling suspension.
More Efficient Design
Another great feature of the 2020 Ram 1500 is the technology and features they added to make the truck more efficient. Once the truck reaches a speed of 30 miles per hour, an air dam drops down automatically to reduce drag and improve fuel efficiency at higher speeds. Extra optional features can add an air suspension system that will lower the ground clearance of the truck when appropriate to further enhance the truck’s aerodynamic properties.
Other features found on the 2020 Ram 1500 are for added convenience and lifestyle efficiency. The tailgate, for example, has a 60/40 split to allow for modular use. The split lets you swing the tailgate away instead of dropping it down, allowing you to load the bed via forklift when needed. Of course, you can still drop the tailgate in the traditional way without sacrificing payload capabilities.
It’s no wonder everyone is rushing in to get their hands behind the wheel of this incredible truck. Schedule your test drive today or check out our online inventory.
