2020 RAM 1500 Chambersburg PA
2020 RAM 1500 at Shively Motors of Chambersburg
The RAM 1500 continues to be the best pickup truck on the open market! While the truck went through a complete redesign last year, it continues to be an industry leader when it comes to outstanding driving dynamics, plush interiors, and a unique rear suspension in its class. Taking all of this into account, the RAM 1500 easily takes down the competition with a ride quality that is typically associated with luxury sedans. Engine choices range from the familiar, but still powerful, 3.6-liter V6 and 5.7-liter V8. These engines are certainly tried-and-true, and there are a few tricks up its sleeve. Last year, RAM came out with a mild-hybrid system to improve fuel efficiency and engine smoothness. The equipment is standard on the V6 and optional on the V8. New this year to the RAM engine lineup is a diesel-powered 3.0-liter V6, which is known as the EcoDiesel. Inside the cabin, the RAM ups the ante with comfortable seats, high-quality materials, and an easy to use infotainment system. As you move through the trim levels, the more luxury features will be provided. There is so much to go over with the 2020 RAM 1500, let’s get started!

What engines are there to choose from?
Most models of the RAM 1500 that you come across will have the option of a quad cab with a long bed or a crew cab with a long or short bed. Under the hood, most trims come standard with a 3.6-liter V6 engine that pumps out 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque. The V6 comes standard with the eTorque system that increases fuel economy, and you can also opt for a 5.7-liter V8 that makes 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque, which is available with or without the eTorque. The V8 engine comes standard on the Laramie, Long Horn, and Limited trims. All-new this year for the RAM is a 3.0-liter V6 diesel-powered engine that comes with 260 horsepower and an astounding 480 lb-ft of torque, which is available on any trim level. Rear-wheel drive comes standard with all of these engines as does an eight-speed automatic transmission. The RAM can tow up to 12,560 pounds when fully equipped.
