2020 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel
The 2020 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel is a top-up to its prior model. Here are some of the features that make it greater than the Ram 1500 that was before the 2020 model’s entry.
Boosted Tank plus Engine
This truck possesses a 150L tank which travels 1,000 miles between fill-ups thus assisting an average driver keep about $550 in annual savings. Its engine is a new 3.0L EcoDiesel V6; it covers all configurations of the 2020 model and is not limited to only a few.
Often ranked the best full-size truck, this Ram is a Rear-Wheel Drive (RWD) with a 6 passenger seating capacity and a 17mpg consumption rate.
Onboard towing capacity: 2,040lbs; that is how much the 2020 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel carries. But when it has to tow cargo behind it, it carries a little over 6 times its onboard capacity: 12,560lbs is the exact number! And there is blind-spot monitoring to protect what is being towed from a collision. What’s more? An if-you-prefer-you-choose-this air suspension is available to retain/maintain a ride as flat as a pancake when towing.
New Multifunction Tailgate
Tailgates matter in trucks! How quickly that flap at the back of any truck gets out of the way – and stays out of the way – affects the performance and efficiency of loading and unloading cargoes from a truck. The 2020 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel has both downward opening and side-opening options. You choose!
Dashboard and Upholstery
This is the same as the 2019 model but there are noticeable changes in the higher trim levels:
- Reclining rear seats for extra comfort.
- Additional headroom and legroom for rear-seated passengers when you select the Crew Cab body mode at purchase.
- Soft leather coating on seats and dashboards.
- Heated seat activation via a designated screen.
Technology Plus Entertainment
Perpendicular and parallel parking are assisted by technology in this truck; add these to lane departure warning and blind-spot monitoring, forward collision warning and adaptive cruise control.
Entertainment is delivered via the Uconnect software by Chrysler and an optional 12” vertical touchscreen on the dashboard; climate controls, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Wi-Fi hotspot are inclusive as well.
With these improvements, the 2020 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel truck is a must buy which gives you great returns for your money.
