The new generation of the HD trucks is here and while some reviewers don’t like the fact that the new model looks like the refreshed version of the previous model in some aspects, others love all those new technologies that came with the new model. Once again, FCA’s truck company sets new standards in the industry, when it comes to a perfect combination between capabilities and conveniences. Of course, the 2020 Ram 3500 Mega Cab is an absolute leader in this aspect, as it offers an enormous amount of interior space, along with a decent-sized cargo bed.
Also, there is a long list of standard features, as well as two familiar engine options. Everyone can pick the right Ram 3500 for him, but this particular version is the real deal. The next year won’t bring more significant changes, considering that we are talking about a pretty fresh vehicle.
2020 Ram 3500 Mega Cab Review
In terms of base design characteristics, the new 2020 Ram 3500 Mega Cab adopts a lot of solutions from the new 1500 models. This particularly refers to the exterior design. When it comes to the styling, you can easily notice the brand’s new front face, a new design language that has finally abandoned the old crosshair grille design, which has been around for ages.
The new model looks much more attractive and this Mega Cab version is at the top of the offer. It features an even bigger cabin than a crew cab model. Still, it rides on the same wheelbase, so a short bed is actually the only option you can pick. However, even this short bed isn’t that short, as it measures 6 feet and four inches, which will satisfy the needs of most truckers.
When it comes to the interior design, the 2020 Ram 3500 Mega Cab really shines. Not only it is extremely spacious, but it also delivers a quite impressive dose of luxury. This particularly refers to higher trim levels. There you can count on all kinds of leather upholsteries and full loads of tech features. The trim level organization is practically the same as in the rest of the lineup. Still, this cab design isn’t available in the most basic Tradesman trim level.
Therefore, the offer starts with the Big Horn (Lone Star for shoppers in Texas) version. This model comes standard with things like chrome exterior trim, 18-inch alloy wheels (chrome on the Lone Star), an integrated trailer brake controller, remote locking and unlocking, a power-sliding rear window, remote ignition, cloth upholstery.
The Laramie is probably the most popular version of this truck. Simply, it offers an amazing amount of features for the price. Compared to the Big Horn model, it comes with upgrades like a power-adjustable driver’s seat, leather upholstery, driver-seat memory functions, a power-adjustable front passenger seat, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, a 10-speaker surround-sound audio system, HD and satellite radio, and an 8.4-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Also, there are things like dual-zone climate control, parking sensors, LED lighting and many more things
If you want even more features, pick the Laramie Longhorn trim level. This one adds things like upgraded leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, wood interior and steering wheel trim, driver memory settings, navigation and more. Also, this model stands out with a different, more attractive grille pattern.
Finally, there is the range-topping trim level called Limited. It adds exclusive features like 20-inch wheels, additional chrome exterior trim, black leather upholstery etc.
Also, keep in mind that there is a whole bunch of standalone options, which are available in most versions.
2020 Ram 3500 Mega Cab Engines
When it comes to the powertrain, things are pretty simple here. You can pick either gasoline or diesel engine. Base models are equipped with a familiar 6.4-liter Hemi V8 gasoline engine, which is good for about 410 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque and comes in pair with 8-speed automatic transmission.
Still, diesel models are the real deal if you are looking for a capable 2020 Ram 3500 Mega Cab. Of course, there is a well-known 6.7-liter turbo inline-six, which in base version delivers around 370 horsepower and 850 pound-feet of torque. A more powerful version of the engine is also available. It features a max output of 400 hp and an impressive max torque that goes up to a full 1000 pound-feet. Diesel models come in pair with a 6-speed automatic transmission.
