Dodge Ram is providing numerous refreshments to its heavy-duty lineup. The 2020 Ram 3500 HD will be no different. It is already one of the most reliable trucks in the segment. It looks modern and attractive. Also, it offers one of the most upscale interiors in the heavy-duty category. Performance is quite astonishing.
The 2020 model will be even better. Latest spy shots are showing us the latest refreshments from the outside. New 3500 HD model is clearly based on the light-duty pickup truck. It looks upscale and it will offer even more aggressive design. From the inside, this truck will get slight updates only.
2020 Ram 3500 HD Updates
The 2020 Ram 3500 HD was caught on camera. The testing vehicle is spotted with the heavy camouflage but the latest changes are still visible. This model comes with astonishing styling and very modern design. However, the new model will look even closer to the Ram 1500 pickup truck. The heavy-duty model borrows plenty of cues from its sibling.
That includes new headlights and restyled front grille. Camouflage still hides the front end so we don’t know if the “RAM” lettering will sit on the grill. Also, the company’s badge is still an option. Whatsoever, side profile will stay intact and rear part will get refreshed taillights.
Cabin Is Available With a12-inch display On The Higher Trims
Ram will look to replicate the interior of the 1500 model and apply it inside the 3500 HD. This is a good thing as the Ram 1500 comes with an SUV-like cabin. That means the interior is very upscale, even with the base model. The 2020 Ram 3500 HD will get minor upgrades, but it will look more stylish than its predecessor.
The cabin is more modern and it comes with the 8.4-inch infotainment touchscreen. Moreover, the 12-inch display is available on higher trim levels. One of the most interesting things is the steering column-mounted shift leveler. That means the rotary shift dial is not in the offer. Spy shots didn’t provide enough interior details but we can expect slightly more updates. On the other hand, the dashboard will largely remain. We can also expect more driver-assistance features as standard.
The all-new 2020 Ram 3500 HD will offer the same engine lineup as the current model. That means a 6.4-liter Hemi V8 engine is standard once again. Powerful V8 produces up to 410 HP and 430 lb-ft of torque. Optionally, a 6.7-liter Cummins is available. This turbodiesel engine delivers 385 horsepower and 930 lb-ft of torque. A 5.7-liter V8 is not available anymore as you probably know. Whatsoever, if you want to use Ram 3500 HD for some heavy work, the diesel variant is more than recommendable.
A 6.7-liter engine can tow 30,000 pounds. Some rumors are even suggesting a hybrid drivetrain, but that won’t happen, at least not in 2020. On the other hand, Ford and Chevrolet are already working on the heavy-duty hybrids. For that reason, Dodge Ram will definitely introduce a hybrid model at some point.
2020 Ram 3500 HD Price and Release Date
The price of the 2020 Ram 3500 HD won’t change. That means the price will start at $33,000. However, this truck is available in numerous trim levels and special versions. The 3500 HD model will go on sale in the second half of 2019. Most likely, the heavy-duty model will become available this fall.
