model highlights

The Ram 1500 comes in no less than six different trim levels. Drivetrain choices are much less complicated: all models are available in either 2-wheel drive or 4x4 configuration with an 8-speed automatic as the only transmission choice. The base engine is a 3.6L V6, making 305 horsepower. Ram's eTorque mild hybrid system is standard on this engine, providing start/stop technology and short-term torque assist when needed. The alternative is the return of the 3.0L EcoDiesel engine providing a hefty 480-pound feet of torque and 260 horsepower. For drivers that need a V8, a 5.7L Hemi engine available that makes 395 horsepower. Ram's eTorque system is optional on this engine, and opting for it will add up to 130 lb-feet of torque when needed. The eTorque system adds about $800 to the price of the truck.

The most basic Ram 1500 is the Tradesman trim. Intended mostly as a work truck, the Tradesman does without a fancy grill or exterior chrome accents. Instead, it makes do with power door locks and windows, remote keyless access, a rear-view backup camera and of course, a Uconnect system with a 5-inch touchscreen and Bluetooth streaming audio.

The Big Horn Edition adds about $4,000 to the Tradesman, but makes the truck far more livable for the daily driver than just as a work truck. The Big Horn comes with 18-inch aluminum wheels, a leather wrapped steering wheel with audio controls on it; exterior chrome work in the grill, bumpers and door handles; fog lamps and in-floor storage should buyers opt for the crew cab.

The next step up is the Laramie, which is where things start to take a turn towards the luxurious. The Laramie comes with a nicer Uconnect system featuring an 8.4-inch touchscreen, a 7-inch driver information digital gauge cluster, heated and ventilated front seats with 12-way adjustments and a memory function and an alpine stereo with nine speakers.

The Rebel trim goes for sporty over luxurious and gets a unique, aggressive front grill along with blacked out exterior accents. It looks far meaner than any other trim level. LED headlamps, taillights and fog lamps, an electronically locking rear differential, 33-inch tires, tow hooks, an assisted tailgate, a power sliding rear window and the 12-way adjustable seats from the Laramie are all standard on the Rebel. The model is only available with a short bed when configured with the crew cab.

The Laramie Longhorn is only available with a crew cab, but comes with either a short or a long bed. It comes with much of the Laramie features while adding LED projector headlamps, slick looking 20-inch wheels, leather seats, side steps and a wood-trimmed interior.

Top-of-the-line Limited editions come with a huge 12-inch touchscreen, powered running boards, a blind spot monitoring system, active air suspension, a wireless charging pad and more. It also has an available 19-speaker harman/kardon sound system, which Ram claims is the most powerful stereo in its class.

model news

After an extensive re-design last year, the 2020 Dodge Ram looks to add even more value with the return of its 3.0L EcoDiesel engine boasting a class-leading 480 lb-feet of torque. Also new this year is the return of Night Edition Big Horn and Laramie models while the off-road orientated Rebel trim now includes a power liftgate, heated rear seats and a 12-way adjustable driver's seat. Rebels also can be equipped with the Driver Assistance package offering adaptive cruise control and lane-departure warning.

value writeup

The Ram 1500 starts well below $32,000 and offers an incredibly capable vehicle for that price. However, it can also be optioned up to luxury levels. It's not just options; the new Ram rides well, is quiet inside and when configured as such, feels every bit as luxurious when compared to your average Lexus or BMW. The new Ram is also capable of towing up to 12,750 lbs with a maximum payload weight of 2,300 lbs. Having shed over 200 lbs from the previous generation, and designed to have a drag coefficient of just 0.357, fuel economy lands at an impressive combined figure of 21mpg.

Note Regarding Driver Rating:

Male: Average sized adult male dummy in 35-MPH crash into fixed barrier. Rating is evaluation of injury to head, neck, chest, legs. Female: Small-sized adult female dummy in 35-mph crash into fixed barrier. Rating is evaluation of injury to head, neck, chest, legs.

Rollover Note: Dynamic (moving) test results (Tip or No Tip) and measured rollover-related properties determine vehicle's risk of rollover in single vehicle crash and its rollover rating. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is.
