Pickup trucks like the Ram 1500 are your friend when it comes to outdoor jobs. The 2020 Ram 1500 is built for towing and tailgating. This efficient pickup will make your life easier. Below, we’ll tell you more about the versatile tailgate features, smart towing technology, and ultra-efficient engine options of the 2020 Ram 1500.
The rear end of the 2020 Ram 1500 features the available multifunction tailgate. This 60/40 split tailgate door swings open horizontally, like a car door, rather than the traditional vertically opening tailgate. This way, you can easily get in and out of your truck bed. Plus, the tailgate can still be dropped vertically if you want, providing you with more ways to load. The bed also offers an available Class-Exclusive RamBox® Cargo Management system, a built-in cargo box above the rear wheel, to hold odds and ends that would normally clutter your truck bed.
The 2020 Ram 1500 can tow up to 12,750 pounds, making it more than capable of handling your next road trip. Towing has never been easier either, with the smart safety features and convenience technology that the 2020 Ram 1500 offers. One such safety feature is Rear Cross Path and Automatic Trailer Detection. This feature uses sensors to keep track of your blind spot, while automatically factoring in your trailer.
Engines are the heart of your vehicles, and the 2020 Ram 1500 runs on the most quality engines. Engine options include a 5.7 L HEMI® V8 Engine with eTorque and a 3.6 L Pentastar® V6 Engine with eTorque. The eTorque Mild Hybrid System replaces the alternator with a battery-powered motor, creating even more power at a more efficient pace. Perhaps that is why this second engine helped earn the 2020 Ram 1500 its best-in-class standard V6 fuel economy. That’s a combined EPA rating of 23 mpg.
