020 RAM 1500 trims and their defining features
Built on a stunning legacy, RAM’s trucks are a major hit among Americans. The 2019 RAM 1500 was especially popular, winning multiple awards including the 2019 Editors’ Choice Award from Edmunds. It outperformed most of its competitors, prompting the brand to work even harder to make the 2020 RAM 1500 a worthy successor.
The result exemplifies the company’s standing in the segment, with the 2020 RAM 1500 being a class above the 2019 version. Available in six trims, the pickup truck is loaded with performance, style, and comfort, already breaking sales and on course to set new standards in the segment. The six versions come with their own set of specifications and features, which underlines their price accordingly.
2020 RAM 1500 Tradesman
The base model, whose price starts at around $32,145, has everything you need from a basic to a somewhat advanced level. The standard is the 3.6-liter EcoDiesel V6 engine, producing 260 horsepower and 480 lb-ft of torque. Coming to its features, the Tradesman comes with keyless entry, ParkView® Rare Backup Camera, a five-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth®, and six speakers. Additionally, there’s electronic stability control, a full set of airbags, and traction control to improve stability.
2020 RAM 1500 Big Horn
