If you're considering buying a heavy-duty pickup, you're undoubtedly motivated by the need to tow or haul a heavy load, and the 2020 Ram Heavy Duty is more than capable of handling the needs of the average heavy-duty truck buyer. While its powertrains are on par with the offerings of Ford and GM, Ram has carved out a niche for itself by offering upscale designs inside and out, with a variety of attractive exterior bits and interiors deserving of the luxury truck designation, especially in the upper trim levels. Whether or not you're loyal to a specific brand, as most full-size truck buyers are, the new Ram is worth a look. Find a Ram 2500 for sale or Find a Ram 3500 for sale

2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD -- While the Silverado 1500 was redesigned for 2019, the Silverado HD is all-new for 2020.

Engine options are a 6.6-liter gas V8 putting out 401 hp and 464 lb-ft of torque or a 6.6-liter turbodiesel V8 that makes 445 hp and 910 lb-ft of torque.
