What will the future of the American pickup look like in the upcoming decade? One thing is certain, we will see more EV pickups and pickups that offer better fuel economy, just as we have with brands like Ram. Will a 7.0-Liter engine become a thing of the near future? We’re more likely to see upgrades in areas that are more commonly used. Ram provides more than enough support in terms of horsepower and strength to haul or tow just about anything across its heavy-duty line-up. For those who want all the perks of a truck that come aside from its traditional use as a working truck, the upgrades have naturally gone to making a cozy, modern, spacious ride for the whole family. That’s why pickups have become the choice of most drivers. 

How Ram Has Become So Success

Ram has not only added incredible luxury inside its Ram 1500, a variety of top-notch powertrain options is responsible as well. Ram has reestablished its fuel economy approach with innovation engines found in the choices like the Ram EcoDiesel or the 5.7-Liter HEMI VVT V8 that has a mild hybrid system providing generous fuel economy. As sedans have seen less production across the automotive industry, the pickup reigns supreme and offer three engine choices across the 2020 Ram 1500 line-up. The standard powertrain on the 2020 Ram 1500 is a sturdy 3.6-Liter Pentastar V6 engine. The available 5.7-HEMI VVT V8 engine generates 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque. 540 lb-ft of torque is provided with the available eTorque mild hybrid system on the 5.7-liter HEMI VVT V8.

A 3.0-Liter turbo diesel V6 that is a $4,995 upgrade, worth every penny offering 32 highway mpg city. An available 33-gallon fuel tank is a $445 option that allows owners of the 2020 Ram1500 over 1,000 miles of use before needing to get more diesel fuel. Other innovations have helped grow sales. 

High-End Quality + Innovative Versatility

Ram has produced its pickups to offer premium quality refinement. Within its remarkable line-up of choices, FCA’s latest Generation 3 EcoDiesel powertrain is as quiet as it is efficient. With the radio on, passengers and drivers alike will hardly notice the vehicle running despite offering an incredibly effortless burst if needed without the characteristic rumble of a V8 engine.Owners can add the optional 19-speaker Harman Kardon premium audio system. Available Active Noise Cancellation technology helped to even further reduce outside road noise. This also does not interfere with the Kardon Audio System. 

Other forward-thinking features include Ram’s Multi-Function tailgate solution for owners to have even more cargo storage. This $995 option opens up easily by use of a button on the tailgate or remotely using the vehicle key or a button in the cabin, allowing owners to reach items in the bed without leaning over. This is perfect for taking items that will only be in the truck bed for a short trip.

The RamBox Cargo Management system is another nifty innovation. For just $995, this option includes two storage areas on either side of the tailgate. Owners that want easy access to smaller items that could move around in the main bed have a new spot to add items that will be safe and secure. Both sides include water drains allowing owners to add ice inside, great for tailgating or camping. Wouldn’t owning a new 2020 Ram 1500 seem like a great idea for the whole family?
