The Ram 1500 is a dependable truck that everyone from families to businesses can rely on for towing or carrying cargo. So, how do you know if it's the right pickup for you? To help drivers in New City, Nanuet, and Pearl River decide, Rockland CDJR looks at what it's capable of in this 2020 Ram 1500 review.

Ram 1500 Specs

The Ram 1500 offers four capable powertrains. Whether you're interested in a traditional gas-powered engine, a diesel powertrain, or the eTorque Mild Hybrid System, your truck will feature a versatile 8-speed automatic transmission.

The base engine is a 3.6L Pentastar® V6 engine with eTorque. It gets up to 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque. The next option is a 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 engine. This efficient powertrain can deliver up to 260 horsepower and an impressive 480 lb-ft of torque.

There are also two 5.7L HEMI® V8 engines to choose from. One engine features the eTorque Mild Hybrid System, while the other engine is designed with Variable Valve Timing (VVT). Both engines can provide up to 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque.

2020 Ram 1500 Towing Capacity

With all that power under the hood, the Ram 1500 can tow up to 12,750 pounds. That gives you the ability to take your camper or boat on your next vacation or haul a heavy trailer to your job site.

There are also some useful features to make towing easier and safer. For starters, the ParkView® Rear Back Up Camera will help you line up your truck with your trailer. Just put the Ram 1500 in reverse, and your dashboard monitor will switch from the infotainment system to a live look at what's behind your pickup.

Once you're on the road, you'll be able to steer and maneuver just as confidently as you would without a trailer. Assisted by Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Path and Trailer Detection, you'll always know when it's safe to change lanes.

Truck Bed & Payload

You'll be able to toss lots of cargo into the truck bed, too. The Ram 1500 features a high-strength steel frame and a durable suspension. This design allows it to handle a payload of up to 2,300 pounds.

The available multifunction tailgate gives you several ways to load and unload your gear. It features 60/40 split swing-away doors that enable you to get closer to the truck bed. These can swing open individually or fold down flat as one solid piece like a traditional tailgate.

The Ram 1500 also offers more cargo room than meets the eye. The available RamBox® Cargo Management System turns the walls of your truck bed into a pair of storage compartments. They're weatherproof and include a built-in drain. Each one is built with its own lock, so you can store valuables in them, too. Plus, there are LED lights inside that can improve visibility when you're working at night.
