In most cases, you wouldn’t expect too many changes for the second production year. However, things are a little bit different in this case, so the 2020 Ram 1500 is about to come with a lot of interesting novelties. Of course, the first thing that comes to mind is a Regular Cab model, which is about to hit the market by the end of the year.
Also, we count on a diesel engine, which still waits for initiation. Other than that, we could see some smaller tweaks in terms of standard equipment. The rest of the truck will remain pretty much the same.
2020 Ram 1500 Regular Cab
When it comes to 2020 Ram 1500 changes, there is no doubt that the arrival of Regular Cab version is the most important novelty for the next year. Currently, Ram offers a previous-generation version. The reason lays in the fact that FCA currently has no capacity to produce all three cab designs in the same factory.
Therefore, this version will be coming out from tracks in Mexico, along with Heavy Duty models. The new model will feature all the novelties that already came in Quad and Crew Cab models, though keep in mind that this body style will be available in lower trim levels only, as this is primarily a work machine.
When will 2020 Ram 1500 Diesel Arrive?
Big novelties won’t come only in terms of 2020 Ram 1500 body styles. We count on big things under the hood as well. Currently, there are two familiar gasoline engines in the offer. Both come with the new eTorque hybrid systems, which ensures a slight power boost and helps start/stop system work smoother. Base models feature 3.6-liter unit, which is good for about 305 horsepower, while a large 5.7-liter V8 with 395 horsepower is available.
For the next year, we expect that the company will introduce 2020 Ram 1500 diesel version. Of course, we count on a familiar 3.0-liter inline-six, which comes from VM Motori. For this occasion, it will probably get a slight power boost, as well as more torque. There is no doubt that this will remain the most economical engine option in the offer.
Interior and Features
On the inside, we definitely won’t see any important changes. Simply, the recent redesign has brought such amazing improvement in terms of the interior quality that the new truck can easily compare with many luxury crossovers. All materials are soft to the touch, while the amount of tech features is impressive. Therefore, we don’t expect any notable change for the next year.
The trim level organization is also about to remain the same. The base Tradesman already comes with a nice amount of tech features, including a 5-inch touchscreen, push-button start, Bluetooth, three USB ports, a rearview camera etc.
The 2020 Ram 1500 Big Horn will remain one of the most popular choices, thanks to a great balance between value and price. A power-adjustable driver’s seat, interior styling upgrades and available 8.4-inch touchscreen are some of the most important upgrades.
The following trim levels like Laramie and Laramie Longhorn are mostly about upgrades in terms of standard equipment. The Limited is a range-topping trim level.
Also, there is an off-road-oriented version called Rebel, which comes with Bilstein shocks and several more upgrades. However, we have to say to rival off-road versions like Ford Raptor and Toyota Tundra are far more capable, so you should probably check these two models, as well as the upcoming HD off-roader – the Power Wagon.
When will 2020 Ram 1500 be available?
We expect to see this model by the end of the year. When it comes to the price, the new 2020 Ram 1500 Regular price will probably go around 28.000 dollars.
