Exterior – 2020 RAM 1500
The exterior of the RAM gets two bold appearance packages that give you blacked out features of the RAM 1500. You couldn’t get these on the 2019 1500. RAM is serving Albuquerque Los Lunas Santa Fe truck owners with the elegant and rugged exterior Black Edition and Night Edition 1500s. The Night Edition gets a black grille and grille surround, 20-22″ wheels, and distinct badging that is nothing short of breathtaking. You’ll also have three new color options: Hydro Blue, Olive Green, and RV Match Walnut Brown.
Interior – 2020 RAM 1500 in Albuquerque NM
The 2019 RAM 1500 was already the most luxurious pickup truck in its class, but RAM realized they could improve even more on the formula by offering just a few extra goodies and a better arrangement of dash features. The most useful feature of the new interior includes the center console storage configuration, featuring 15″ of space, in addition to in-floor storage bins that make it easy to stow it and forget it. Leather trimmed options are available on higher trims like the Laramie Longhorn and Limited (100% leather interior). A huge 12″ touchscreen is also at your disposal. RAM is at the forefront of technology when it comes to pickup trucks. They know that truck owners benefit enormously from the enormous number of camera angles offered up on that touchscreen. It’s like having a second set of eyes with you on the job.
Mechanical – 1500 specs in Albuquerque
The EcoDiesel gets a power boost and greater towing rating in 2020. You’ll find that an optional 5.7L HEMI® V8 engine with eTorque Mild Hybrid System provides 395 horsepower and 410 lbs-ft of torque. That gives you best-in-class gas tow ratings at 12,750 pounds. You get the same horsepower and torque with the 5.7L HEMI V8 engine, minus the eTorque system. Your towing rating on that engine will still be a hefty 11,610 pounds. Standard on all trims is the 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine with eTorque, good for 305 horsepower and 269 lbs-ft of torque, with maximum towing set at 7,730 pounds. Finally, there’s a 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 engine with 260 horsepower and 480 lbs-ft of torque, good for 12,560 pound towing capacity. Engines are paired with a class-exclusive TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission.
