Iowa Review - 2020 RAM 1500

Vehicle Overview

The all-new RAM 1500 was introduced for the 2019 model year. The new 1500 is modern, sophisticated and tough, and the 2020 model builds on that success with expanded standard equipment, an HFE trim, new styling options and the return of the EcoDiesel. The 2020 RAM 1500 has arrived at Brad Deery Motors.

Having so many choices is another great reason to buy or lease the 2020 RAM 1500. The crew cab features full-size doors whereas the doors are smaller on the quad cab. The crew cab also gives you the option of the standard 6-foot-4-inch box or the shorter 5-foot-7-inch box. The quad, on the other hand, is only available with the standard box. When selecting your RAM 1500, you will have at least 10 exterior colors available as well as multiple wheel designs. Two-tone exteriors are available on the Laramie and up, and options include deployable bed steps, tubular side steps and a tri-fold tonneau cover.

Why should you choose the 2020 RAM 1500? The modern interior, which is among the most spacious and advanced in the class, is a great reason. You have your choice between either a quad cab or crew cab, and in either case, you have 35.6 inches of rear legroom and 39.2 inches of rear headroom. The RAM 1500 is loaded with tech as well. All models feature a Uconnect 3 infotainment system. The base touchscreen is a 5-inch model, but you can upgrade to either 8.4 or 12.0 inches starting with the Big Horn, and the 8.4-inch touchscreen becomes standard starting with the Laramie trim level.

Determining which powertrain is ideal for you is a great reason to request additional information from your local RAM dealer serving Maquoketa Dubuque Davenport Iowa, and Brad Deery Motors can even provide it to you online. The standard engine is a 3.6L V6 with eTorque, and RAM pairs it with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Our 2020 RAM 1500 review would be remiss if it did not mention that even at the base Tradesman level, you can opt for a 5.7L V8 HEMI with or without eTorque, and RAM pairs the HEMI with an upgraded eight-speed. Note that with the Laramie Longhorn and Limited, the non-eTorque option is no longer available. The eTorque system is a hybrid technology that improves fuel performance but without sacrificing horsepower or torque. The RAM 1500 offers best-in-class towing, and with proper equipment and the V8 HEMI, it can tow more than 12,000 pounds.

Safety - 2020 RAM 1500 dealer

Our Iowa review process extends to driver assistance features as well. The days when American pickups only had the bare minimum when it comes to safety equipment are long gone. Even the Tradesman features a Uconnect 3 infotainment system and rearview parking camera. Trailer brake control is an option and later added as standard equipment. At the Laramie trim level, you gain the option of the Advanced Safety Group. Our 2020 RAM 1500 review found this to be among the most robust such packages in the class. It upgrades the base rearview camera to a surround-view camera, and it adds parallel and perpendicular park assist with stop, lane keep assist, full-speed forward collision warning plus, automatic high beam headlamp control, advanced break assist and adaptive cruise control with stop and go. At the Rebel trim level and up, some of this equipment is included standard.
