2020 Ram 2500 and Ram 3500 Heavy Duty are more luxurious, bigger and more capable than ever, and set a new bar for the HD pickup class. The truck family has an overall rating of 6.5 out of 10 for its combination of massive capabilities, premium features and quiet comfort, even though safety and fuel consumption are not officially measured. There is a Ram Heavy Duty for all buyers, available in six finishes, three body styles, two chassis setups, single or dual rear axles, two bed lengths, three engines, and two power-trains. equipped ships.
For 2020, the Ram HD gets a Night Edition that features darkened style elements such as 20-inch wheels. Active track control is now available at all finishes as well as blind spot monitors, and a new tire pressure monitoring system for trailers is included. There are also two new paint colors, and a 50-liter fuel tank is now standard on models of the longer-legged 8-foot cabin.
2020 Ram 2500 Design
The 2020 Ram 2500 and 3500 Heavy Duty smooth its big-rig look with better results than the smaller 1500. It’s the right balance of muscle and sophistication in the right trim. Almost every finish of the Ram Heavy Duty looks like a completely different track, from the plastic-and-steel-finished Dealer to the chrome-heavy Limited model. The venerable Power Wagon takes style art from the less capable Rebel 1500, with its large plastic grille, upholstery and two-tone paint.
Inside, the big Ram HD is almost indistinguishable from the smaller 1500, which is a wonderful thing. It’s our favorite truck interior and offers an expensive view at the top of the range, including semi-aniline leather and real wood and metal accents. There are plenty of buttons and buttons for different functions, no matter which touch screen you choose, but technophobes want the massive 12.0-inch screen that works with gloves.
2020 Ram 2500 Interior
In the cabin, the active noise cancellation and sound-proofing material creates a quieter atmosphere, even at full acceleration and with great trailer views. Even in basic craftsmanship, the Ram impresses in terms of fit and finish, and the leading Laramie Longhorn and Limited models feature fine materials such as semi-aniline leather, real wood and real metal accents that do not look in a luxury car.
In terms of bed access, Ram offers a deployable staircase mounted behind the truck, which swings out, but it’s not nearly as useful or innovative as competing model solutions. LED lighting, a spray lining and the branded Rambox suspension system make the bed more usable if you at least have access to it.
2020 Ram 2500 Engine
By default, the Ram HD gets a 6.4-liter Hemi V-8 with 410 horsepower and 429 pounds of torque. With the cylinder deactivated, this large power plant can shut down four cylinders under light loads to save fuel. Rear-wheel drive is standard, all-wheel drive is optional, and all gas-powered Ram HDs come with a smooth 8-speed automatic transmission. Buyers have the option of choosing two different Cummins 6.7-liter turbo diesel inline 6 engines, the less powerful being the 370 hp and 850 pounds of torque. It’s a serious grunt, but an upgraded engine pushes the numbers up to 400hp and a full 1,000 pounds. Both liters of diesel use 6-speed automatic transmissions, the more powerful engine gets a butter gearbox.
2020 Ram 2500 Safety
The Ram Heavy Duty range in 2020 is not judged for crash tests, but does offer some active safety features as options. With six airbags, stability control, fixed-grip control, anti-lock brakes and a rear-view camera as standard, the Ram HD series doesn’t push the envelope in terms of safety technology. Desirable passive and active safety features such as a load and surrounding camera system, blind spot monitors, forward collision warnings with automatic emergency braking, parking sensors and active lane control are all available throughout the range or top cutout exclusively.
