Design

While there’s nothing wrong with the old look of the Ram 1500—in fact, the Ram 1500 Classic is still a robust and viable option—the modern version of this incredibly capable pickup offers a look that’s simultaneously rugged and futuristic. The 2020 1500 is part of the next generation of Ram trucks, made from a mix of aluminum and high-strength steel to be stronger and more durable. From the lightweight design of the heavy-duty front suspension, to the more aerodynamically-styled front fascia, the 2020 Ram 1500 offers serious performance along with a sleek look. Class-leading utility is found in the form of power side steps, a unique 60/40 split tailgate, and the impressive storage capabilities of the RamBox system.
Inside, the new Ram 1500 is as luxurious as any other truck on the market, with available leather seating and wood trims—while reclining rear seats provide best-in-class rear legroom. There’s plenty of space up front, too, with a variety of cleverly-designed storage options scattered throughout the cabin, while opening up the dual-panel power sunroof makes it feel that much bigger. The 2020 Ram 1500 is also quieter, to the tune of only 56.7 dBA, so you can enjoy a quietly contemplative ride without worrying about what’s going on outside.

Performance

A choice of three engines gives the 2020 Ram 1500 some serious get-up and go, starting with the base 3.6-litre Pentastar V6 featuring eTorque technology. Producing 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque, utilize eTorque for an extra 90 lb-ft of torque from standstill for a total of 359 lb-ft. Next up is a 5.7L HEMI VVT V8, offering a hearty 395 horsepower for serious passing power on the highway, even with heavy loads in tow. This V8 provides 410 lb-ft of torque, however when equipped with eTorque, it rockets forward with a truly wild 540 lb-ft of torque—more than enough to pull you deep into the 1500’s comfortable seats, or handle all your towing needs. Despite all that power, the 2020 Ram 1500 is able to offer serious fuel efficiency thanks to the smooth-shifting 8-speed automatic transmission found across the lineup.
