2020 Ram Heavy-Duty Wins Truck Of The Year… Again

2020 Ram Heavy-Duty Wins Truck Of The Year… Again

Once again, Ram trucks prove why they are Calgary's longest-lasting heavy-duty truck. The 2020 Ram Heavy Duty truck was just crowned Motortrend's Truck of the Year for the second consecutive year. With superior performance, capability and versatility, Ram Heavy Duty delivers a vehicle that perfectly blends power and luxury. Engineers and designers enhanced the 2020 Heavy-Duty with updates in their Cummins turbo-diesels, high-strength steel platform, transmission, ride and handling, as well as cabin upgrades to enhance luxuriousness and usability.

 

Heavy-Duty Engines And Transmissions

 

With the 2020 Ram Heavy Duty truck, you'll have three engine options from which to choose. These include:

• 6.4-liter Hemi V-8 that delivers 410 hp and 429 lb-ft of torque. This V-8 runs longer in V-4 mode longer for higher fuel efficiency due to the latest cylinder deactivation technology and frame shakers. It is also paired with a quick-shifting eight-speed automatic transmission.
• Two revamped Cummins turbo-diesels that boast new blocks, pistons, heads and camshafts. The 6.7-liter I-6 is smoother, lighter and more efficient while delivering a robust 370 hp and 850 lb-ft of torque. It is also paired with an updated house-built six-speed automatic transmission.

2020 Ram Trim Options

Ram Heavy Duty is available in regular, crew and mega cabs with a choice of a 6-ft. 4-in. or 8-ft. bed and either single or dual rear wheels. The 2020 three-quarter (2500) or one-ton (3500) comes in six available trim levels.

 

These include:
• Tradesman
• Big Horn
• Power Wagon
• Laramie
• Laramie Longhorn
• Limited

 

 

Enhanced Ride, Handling And Efficiency

 

Upgraded Frequency Response Damping shocks on the 2020 Ram Heavy Duty, along with the 2500's rear five-link coil springs and the 3500's traditional leaf springs, provide a better ride, as well as handling, whether it is loaded or empty. Choosing the optional rear helper air springs further enhances the ride quality, along with keeping the truck level when loaded and aiding in picking up and dropping off trailers.

 

The redesigned, larger grille and hood, in conjunction with active grille shutters, enhance the Ram Heavy Duty's overall aerodynamics. Combined with the new eight-speed transmission on gas models, the 2020 Ram Heavy Duty should deliver an 8 to 10-percent improvement in its fuel efficiency.

 

Heavy-Duty Safety

Equipped with advance technologies and multiple camera views, the 2020 Ram Heavy-Duty provides a safer driving, hauling and towing experience. Safety features include:

 

• Available automatic emergency braking, compatible with the trailer brake controller

• Radar cruise control
• Tire pressure monitoring system (up to 6 truck tires and 12 trailer tires)

• Up to four color scheme options
• Acoustic glass and active noise cancelling interior
