What’s New on the 2020 Ram 1500 Pickup Truck
There’s an all-new Ram 1500 EcoDiesel in town – and it’s packing 480 lb.-ft., along with a towing capacity of up to 12,560 lbs. The 2020 Ram 1500 now offers the highest available half-ton towing capacity of any vehicle on the market.
But that’s not the only trick the rugged pickup truck has up its sleeve. For the 2020 model year, there are several changes you’ll want to know about.
What has changed on the 2020 Ram 1500?
The Ram 1500 receives several noteworthy upgrades for 2020. Here’s what has changed.
New EcoDiesel Engine
Of course, the biggest news for 2020 is the addition of an all-new EcoDiesel 3.0L V6 engine. The powerplant features upgrades, such as an updated variable geometry turbocharger (VGT), redesigned cylinder heads and a redesigned EGR system. Lightweight aluminum pistons and a 16.5:1 compression ratio further enhance performance.
Thanks to its advanced design elements, the engine is able to churn out 260 hp and 480 lb.-ft. As was mentioned, all that grunt allows the Ram 1500 to tow up to 12,750 lbs. when properly equipped. The EcoDiesel engine also features mild-hybrid eTorque assist for greater efficiency.
“The new Ram 1500 EcoDiesel is America’s most powerful half-ton diesel pickup, following up on Ram’s Heavy Duty torque leadership and achieving what no other manufacturer has, with up to 480 lb.-ft. of torque in a 3.0-liter engine,” said Reid Bigland, Head of Ram Brand. “The all-new EcoDiesel engine and our eTorque mild-hybrid powertrain technologies deliver the highest available fuel efficiency for our Ram 1500 customers.”
Limited Production Night Edition
A new limited-edition trim level, called the Night Edition, is also available on select 2020 Ram 1500 models. The package boasts exclusive features, including a blacked-out grille, special badging, black lighting bezels and special exhaust tips. A unique set of large-diameter wheels is included, as well.
“Buyers demand a good-looking truck with easy-to-use features. They often tell us that their Ram trucks are an extension of their personality and want to stand out from the crowd,” said Reid Bigland, Head of Ram Brand. “Whether it’s the off-road-enthusiast appeal of the Ram 1500 Rebel, the stylish Night editions or greater usability for the most powerful, most capable heavy-duty trucks, Ram trucks deliver features and durability that are winning over more and more buyers.”
Return of the Rebel Black Appearance Group
The Rebel Black Appearance Group also returns for 2020. The package includes a Diamond Black Crystal Pearl Coat paint job, black 18-inch wheels, a front spoiler, a skid plate, exclusive badging, tow hooks and a unique exhaust. There are also LED headlamps with black bezels and a standard all-black interior.
New Rebel Safety Group
Finally, there’s the addition of the new Rebel Safety Group. The optional bundle includes:
• Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop, Go and Hold
• Forward Collision Mitigation
• Lane Departure Warning-Plus
• Automatic high-beam headlamps
