Overview

What's New in the 2020 RAM 1500?

The all-new third-generation EcoDiesel V6 engine enters the Ram 1500 engine lineup for 2020. There are also two new appearance packages available: Black Appearance Package, which adds black paint and more black trim to the Rebel and Limited models and Night Edition, which adds black exterior trim and black wheels with your choice of body color to the Big Horn and Laramie models. The Ram Rebel also has new exterior graphics available. See the 2020 Ram 1500 models for sale near you

Which 1500 is the Best?

Most will be best-served by the Big Horn/Lone Star, which is available in the widest range of features and price. The top three "L" trims are the luxury models and their extras are hardly essential apart from perhaps the accident avoidance tech. Find a Ram 1500 for sale

How Much Does a 2020 RAM 1500 Cost?

The Ram 1500 is available in seven trim levels: Tradesman, Big Horn/Lone Star, Rebel, Laramie, Laramie Longhorn and Limited. All but the two top trim levels come standard with a Quad Cab and 6-foot-4-in bed (a Regular Cab will be available eventually). A Crew Cab available with that bed or a shorter 5-foot-7-in bed is available on most trims, but the Rebel and Limited models are only available with a Crew Cab and 5-foot 7-in box.

Standard equipment on the Tradesman ($31,895) includes 18-in steel wheels (alloys optional), rear privacy glass, automatic headlights, heated power mirrors, power locks and windows, a backup camera, air conditioning, cruise control, a 40/20/40-split front bench seat (no driver height adjustment), a full-width rear bench seat, vinyl upholstery (cloth optional), a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, Bluetooth, three USB ports, an auxiliary audio jack and a 5-in touchscreen. Some of this equipment will be optional on the eventual Regular Cab model.

The Big Horn ($36,440), or the Lone Star as it's known in Texas and some surrounding states, adds upgraded exterior and interior trim, 18-in alloy wheels, cloth upholstery, a rear center armrest, manual sliding rear window and a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls. The big difference with the Big Horn is the immensity of available options. The most notable of these is the H1 Equipment package that includes an 8-way power driver seat, power-adjustable pedals, a rear window defroster, power-folding mirrors, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, upgraded gauges, satellite radio, a CD player, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, the 8.4-in touchscreen and a premium audio system. The H2 Equipment package adds front and rear parking sensors, reverse automatic emergency braking, remote ignition, heated front seats and steering wheel, dual-zone automatic climate control, two rear USB ports, two household-style power outlets, a fully damped tailgate, upgraded gauges, and power-sliding rear window. Some of the upper trim levels' added features are also available.

The Rebel ($44,240) is the off-road model with unique suspension and styling, off-road bumpers, LED headlights, and a variety of off-road-oriented items that are mostly available as options on other trim levels (an electronic locking differential, all-terrain tires, skid plates, tow hooks and hill-descent control). Its X1 and X2 Equipment packages are broadly similar to the H1 and H2.

The Laramie ($39,940) is the first of the three luxury-oriented trim levels. It includes over the Big Horn LED headlights, auto-dimming exterior mirrors, unique interior color schemes, proximity entry, driver memory settings, leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats (bench remains standard, but bucket seats are available), an 8-way power passenger seat, a 60/40-split reclining rear bench and interior material upgrades. Most of the H1 and H2 package equipment is also standard.

The Laramie Longhorn ($51,140) features special ranch-inspired styling flourishes, especially in the cabin. It also adds to the Laramie equipment 20-in wheels, upgraded headlights, automatic high beams, side steps, a power tailgate release, heated and ventilated front bucket seats, real wood trim and a CD player. Most of the Longhorn's feature upgrades are available on the Laramie.

The Limited ($53,615) gets its own brand of fancy styling and interior trim, plus the air suspension that's optional on all other trims. Beyond that, it really only adds power-operated running boards and blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert (optional on all but two bottom trims).

There are a number of options available on the top three trims available in various packages. These include the 12-in vertically oriented touchscreen, wireless smartphone charging, integrated navigation, adaptive cruise control, forward-collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, a surround-view parking camera and automatic parking assistance. The Laramie Longhorn and Limited can be upgraded with ventilated rear seats.

Regular or dual-pane sunroofs are stand-alone options on all but the Tradesman. The RamBox bed storage is optional on all.

Competition

2020 RAM 1500 vs the competition

2020 Ford F-150: Recent updates, multiple impressive engines and inherent goodness make the F-150 the Ram's toughest competitor.

2020 Chevrolet Silverado and 2020 GMC Sierra: Also coming off of a 2019 redesign, GM's twins improve upon their predecessors, but don't match the Ram's innovations, ride or interior quality.

Used Ram 1500 or Ram 1500 Classic: Ram continued selling the previous-generation model as the Ram 1500 Classic in 2019. These are basically the same truck, and depending on the deal, considering one is a good idea. The previous Ram was still a great, well-rounded truck.
