2020 RAM 1500 Pickup Truck 

Take a Ram 1500 Test Drive Down the Miracle Mile

The launch of the 2020 Ram 1500 pickup truck is one of the most celebrated of all the vehicles in its class: it's one of Motor Trend's top picks for "Best Truck to Buy in 2020" (also earning recognition was the 2020 Ram Heavy Duty!); it was named the Best Truck Brand of 2020 by U.S. News & World Report; and Consumer Guide labeled it a best buy in 2020-for the twelfth year in a row. And did we mention Green Car Journal chose it as the 2020 Green Truck of the Year?

If you aren't impressed yet, get to the nearest Dodge dealership and take a Ram 1500 test drive on the streets of Kansas City. We bet you'll change your tune. These powerful trucks come in six trimlines, ready for adventure, working, hauling, daily driving, or however you want to use it.

Still need more convincing? That's fine! Landmark Dodge Chrysler Jeep is here to tell you five reasons that the 2020 Ram 1500 Pickup Truck is right for you. Yes, you.

#1 - Ram 1500 is Made to Last

The 2020 Ram 1500 offers more than 100 standard and available safety and security features. Standard ones include:

Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Path and Trailer Detection. This standard safety feature scans the blind spots beside and behind your 2020 Ram 1500 to help ensure trailer safety. It automatically senses and accounts for the length of whatever trailer you're pulling.

Largest-in-Class Standard Brakes. These 14.9-inch brakes on every 2020 Ram 1500 brings your beast of a truck, and whatever you're hauling, to a safe stop.

High-Strength Steel. This Ram is a seriously tough truck. 98% of the steel used in the frame is high-strength. That's exceptionally strong.

Advanced Airbag Technology. Each truck is equipped with six standard airbags to protect your passengers. The front airbags feature adaptive venting technology that adapts the airbag fill to the occupant size and severity of a head-on crash.

On top of these impressive features, every new Ram pickup truck comes with at least three warranties from the manufacturer:

  • 5-year, 100,000-mile Diesel Powertrain Limited Warranty (for diesel trucks only)
  • 5-year, 100,000-mile Roadside Assistance
  • 5-Year, 100,000-mile Rust-Through Limited Warranty
  • 5-year, 60,000-mile Gas Powertrain Limited Warranty (for gas-powered trucks only)

#2 - Ram 1500 Hauls Heavy Loads

With the 2020 Ram 1500, you can tow up to 12,750 pounds (if you choose the available 5.7L HEMI V8 with eTorque Hybrid Technology).

How much is 12,750 pounds? In your new Ram pickup truck, theoretically, you can tow:

  • A fully-grown elephant
  • 12.75 telephone poles
  • 3.64 standard-sized cars
  • 2.5 large meteors
  • 21.25 vending machines
  • 9.8 speedboats
  • 63.75 manhole covers
  • Almost half of a fighter jet

Obviously, that means you can tow construction materials, farm equipment, livestock, and a trailer loaded with all your household goods with ease.

#3 - The Multifunctional Tailgate and Rambox. Enough Said.

Yes, you can still put your tailgate down in the same way you've done with your pickup truck since pickup trucks became a thing. But the new multifunctional tailgate on the 2020 Ram 1500 also lets you split the doors open and swing them away for easier access to the bed of your truck.

In 2020, you don't have to slide items over a traditional tailgate. Plus, the swing-away doors let you keep your trailer hitched to your bumper if you need to access the truck bed. Worried this newfangled tailgate isn't as tough as the rest of the truck? Don't be. The Ram 1500 tailgate still holds up to 2,000 pounds.

Don't miss the new Rambox Cargo Management System. It's versatile, weatherproof, lockable, LED-illuminated, and drainable storage on each side of your truck bed. You can even charge up your power tools on-the-go with a 115-volt outlet built right in.

#4 - Interior Luxuries Everyone Will Love.

How often do you talk about how luxurious your truck interior is? Not very, we'd imagine, especially if you're using it to get serious work done. But the 2020 Ram 1500 is the most luxurious truck in its class.

Designed to be the most technologically advanced, the Ram's fourth-generation UConnect system and device connectivity turns the cab of your truck into a cockpit. What else does it have?

Active Noise Cancellation. Ram says, "Frame-mounted active tuned mass nodules work in harmony with the available interior active noise cancellation system that helps reduce ambient sound." That's science. And it means you get a quieter driving experience.

Harman Kardon Premium Audio. Your cockpit has a jukebox, if jukeboxes came with a 900-watt premium audio system with 19 speakers and available stainless steel speaker grilles. Let the music move you.

45.1-inch Rear Legroom and Reclining Rear Seats. Your kids or work crew will think they're royalty with this much space to stretch out. And you won't find it in any other truck of its class-or anyone tall enough to feel cramped into the back seat.

#5 - Stow Your Stuff Absolutely Everywhere.

The 2020 Ram 1500 lets you stow your stuff and charge up to five phones in a reconfigurable center console, which also includes an area for hanging file folders and holding a 15-inch laptop-for the truck-driving businessperson.

There also are the door pockets with LED lights, so you'll never lose anything again, and spacious Ram Bins for in-floor storage large enough for a four-inch drop hitch and armed with integrated tie downs for security.

Keep your valuables in a locking glove compartment for extra security, and your less-than-valuables in a larger upper compartment for easy access.
