2020 Ram 1500 Overview

The 2020 Ram 1500 has 6 different trims to pick from: Tradesman, Big Horn, Laramie, Rebel, Laramie Longhorn, and Limited. The MSRPs for these options range from around $34,800 to $53,600.

To help you determine which one's right for you, we'll go into each trim choice in detail below.

Tradesman

At the most basic level, you have the Tradesman trim. It has an MSRP of $34,845. At such a low price, this is the perfect way for truck newbies to test out whether or not it's the right type of car for them.

Although it's the most basic trim, the Tradesman still comes with quite a few features. For example, it has a 5-inch touchscreen, voice command, remote keyless entry, ParkView rear backup camera, and Bluetooth streaming audio. That's certainly a lot of features for the price you're paying!

In addition, the Tradesman comes standard with black accents, as well as a black mesh grille. It also has construction yellow gauge needles.

Big Horn

The next tier in trims is the Big Horn. It has an MSRP of $39,190, which isn't much more than the Tradesman's.

Like with the most basic trim, the Big Horn has quite a few features, so you get the most bang for the buck. With this trim, you get cloth and vinyl bucket seats, in-floor storage, power drive seat, and a Uconnect 8.4-inch touchscreen.

On the outside, you have chrome front and rear bumpers, grille, and door handles, as well as 20-inch chrome or painted wheels. This truck is sure to be a looker.

Laramie

In the middle of the trim options is the Laramie. For a couple of thousand dollars more, (an MSRP of $42,990), you can go a step up from the Big Horn trim.

This vehicle also has Uconnect, but the touchscreen is 12 inches instead. In fact, it's the largest-in-class touchscreen.

Other features you'll enjoy include a 10-speaker Alpine audio system, 12-way power driver and front passenger seats, and full-screen navigation. On the Laramie, you'll get 20-inch aluminum wheels.

If you'd like, you can also get the Sport Appearance Package. This costs around $2,500 and you'll get black interior accents, a sport performance hood, Ramcharger wireless charging pad, black interior accents, leather-trimmed bucket seats, full-length upgraded floor console, and Laramie body-colored grille.

Rebel

The Rebel is also a trim that doesn't cost much more than the previous trim on the tier list. It has an MSRP of $44,490, which is just $1,500 more than the Laramie.

Some of its special features include Elocker electronic locking rear differential, a fully dampened tailgate, LED lights (headlamps, taillamps, and fog lamps), and an 8.4-inch center console touchscreen.

On this vehicle, you'll also enjoy 33-inch Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac all-terrain tires. You'll have an easy time driving on any surface.

Laramie Longhorn

The Laramie Longhorn is just one step away from the top-most trim. Because of this, the MSRP jumps a little bit to $50,990.

While pickup trucks are usually associated with more rugged features, the Laramie Longhorn oozes luxury. It has premium leather and real barn wood accents, a leather-wrapped dashboard, full-leather seats, and heated rear seats.

On the outside, the Laramie Longhorn has chrome accents and two-tone color options, in addition to front tow hooks and power running boards.

Limited

At the top of the list is the Limited trim. It's the definition of comfort and comes in at an MSRP of $53,690.

You'll get the ultimate trucking experience with the Limited trim, as it comes with heated rear seats, a 19-speaker sound system, 900-watt Harman Kardon premium audio system, and active-level four-corner air suspension.

For the exterior of the truck, it has real wood accents, which gives it a nice touch.

Engine Choices

For the Dodge Ram 1500, you have 3 different engine choices. The first is a 3.6 L V6 in either 2 or 4-wheel drive. This engine is capable of 305 HP.

The other choice is a 5.7 L V8 engine, also in either 2 or 4-wheel drive. This engine's capability is 395 HP.

For all 4 engine choices, they all come standard with an 8-speed automatic transmission. This makes the truck capable of towing a maximum of 12,750 pounds.

Fuel Efficiency

For most trucks, because they're so powerful, their fuel economy usually isn't so great. But for the Ram 1500, it actually does adequately.

In the city, it gets 20 MPG, and on the highway, it gets 26 MPG. Combined, this truck gets around 23 MPG.

Considering how power its engine choices are, the Ram 1500's fuel efficiency is very impressive.
