With excellent driving dynamics, generously appointed interiors, and a unique rear suspension for the class, the 2020 Dodge Ram 1500 glides past competitors with a ride quality more commonly associated with cars. Truck duties are not a problem either — the Ram 1500 offers comparable maximum ratings for both towing and payload capacity.
Powering this Laramie trimmed RAM, is a smooth-shifting eight-speed automatic transmission matched to a 5.7-liter V8 (395 hp, 410 lb-ft). Towing is stout as the RAM can pull more than 11,000 pounds.
The interior is a pleasing place to spend time. The doors open wide to make it easy to get in, and all four doors have their own chunky and well-positioned grab handles. For the driver, there are easy-to-reach controls and a commanding view of the road.
Standard features include 20-inch wheels, power mirrors and rear window, fog lights, and leather-trimmed front seats that are heated, ventilated and power-adjustable. Also included are the 8.4-inch Uconnect infotainment system, USB and USB-C ports, plus Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, navigation, and rear view camera.
