Ram 1500 Features
When compared to other competitive models such as Chevrolet Silverado, the GMC Sierra or the Ford F-150, the 2020 Ram 1500 pickup stands tall above all. It has a bold and commanding appearance that has been a favourite among truck enthusiasts. The design is more appealing to customers than the Toyota Tundra or Nissan Titan. The latest 2020 Ram 1500 models come with more features and trim options. 2020 Ram 1500 price by trim may differ, but the latest model has a new 3.0-litre EcoDiesel engine, and the trim levels each offer unique features and capability above the previous.
Another outstanding feature of the Ram is its 12-inch touch screen from Uconnect and an air suspension that is available to give a driving experience that is less truck-like to users. It is possible to outfit the V8 and V6 engines for the Ram with e-Torque mild-hybrid system from FCA that makes fuel economy and acceleration better.
The 2020 Ram 1500 offers multiple engine variants. There is a 5.7-litre V8 rated at 395 horsepower offering 8-speed automatic transmission. Customers looking for power may prefer this option. With eTorque, the system swaps the alternator with a motor/generator that is able to add power for accelerating and passing as well as store energy. For increased fuel economy, the mild-hybrid setup regulates how the engine starts/stops. The eTorque is standard on the 3.6-litre V6 engine from Pentastar. The engine is also the standard engine on 1500 models that are at the entry-level. There is also a brand new 3.0-litre diesel engine that offers 260 horsepower at 480 pound-feet of torque.

It is supported by a quiet cabin, amazingly comfortable seats, and storage areas well positioned in the vehicle. When driving the Ram 1500 with the eTorque system, the transition from electric motor to gasoline engine is very mild, and the 8-speed automatic is smooth and also responsive. The Ram 1500’s driving features are outstanding because of the brand new 2-valve Frequency Response Damping shocks. They offer drivers a very swift attitude in the turn, responsive steering and, consequently, a smooth ride.
