Changes Coming: 2020 Ram 1500 and 2020 Ram Heavy Duty Trucks
Ram trucks underwent some major changes in 2019. The new 2019 Ram 2500 and Ram 3500 trucks gained a totally new body style, a redesigned 6.7L Cummins Engine, and more technology than I can list in one sentence. It looks like Ram isn’t stopping there though. More changes are coming to the 2020 Ram pickup truck lineup.
The EcoDiesel is Back for the 2020 Ram 1500
Much to our delight, the Ram 1500 will be equipped with a revamped and more powerful V6 EcoDiesel engine. Ram 1500 trucks equipped with the EcoDiesel will have 260 horsepower and 480 lb/ft of torque. They will lead the diesel 1/2 ton class in tow capacity with a max tow rating of 12,560 lbs. You can find out more about the new 2020 EcoDiesel by clicking here.

A new Night Edition will be available on Big Horn and Laramie models. Night Edition trucks will feature new black wheels. The wheels have a 20-inch diameter for Big Horn trims, and 22-inch diameter for Laramie trucks. Exhaust tips, grilles, badging, and other exterior trim pieces are also black. Headlights and taillights will feature black bezels.
Ram Rebel Black Appearance Group Returns
The 2020 Ram Rebel will return with the black appearance group as an option. Black appearance group models will feature a Diamond Black Crystal Pearl Coat, black 18-inch wheels, skid plate, badging, tow hooks, and exhaust. These models will also contain an all-black interior or they can be purchased with a black and ruby red interior.
Rebel Trucks Gain Safety Upgrades, Comfort Package & New Graphics
Like Ram’s other pickup trucks, the Rebel will feature adaptive cruise control, forward collision mitigation, lane departure assist, and automatic high-beam headlamps. All 2020 Rebel trucks will include power tailgate release, wireless charging, rear heated seats, and 12-way power driver’s seat with memory settings.
New Exterior Colors Available on 2020 Ram 1500
Ram 1500s will be available with a couple of new colors including Hydro Blue, RV Match Walnut Brown, and Olive Green.
2020 Ram Heavy Duty Pickup Truck Changes
2020 Ram HD trucks are getting even more technology! Lane keep assist and adaptive steering will be available on all trims. For the first time ever, Ram HD trucks will be available with Blind Spot Monitoring. Trailer tire pressure monitoring is also available on all trim models. What is the most exciting new feature of the 2020 Ram HD though? A new 50-gallon fuel tank will be standard on 2020 Ram HD trucks featuring a crew cab and 8 foot long bed. This is huge for people who haul frequently! Getting an extra capacity fuel tank like a titan tank or one of S&Bs new fuel tanks can cost more than $1,000 before installation. Finally, Ram will also gain two additional color options, the Hydro Blue, and the Olive Green.
