The race in the heavy-duty pickup truck category continues in 2020. Ford is offering the next-gen F-250 and F-350 model and Chevrolet comes with the impressive Silverado HD lineup. Now, the 2020 Ram HD is getting ready for its launch. Whatsoever, FCA will be the first one that will release the 2020 model. That includes both 2500 and 3500 models and both of them will be based on the Ram 1500 light-duty pickup truck.

The all-new model 2020 Ram HD will arrive in the coming months. The new model will be slightly bigger than the current one. For that reason, it will look beefier too. The interior will be based on the 1500 model and under the hood Ram is offering both gasoline and diesel powertrain choices.

2020 Ram HD Exterior is More Muscles

The 2020 Ram HD Pickup Trucks will look bigger than the current HD lineup. Whatsoever, the exterior with more muscles is clearly visible.

The newest spy shots are showing new character lines and more pronounced muscles. Some of the features such as headlights and taillights are taken from the Ram 1500 model. Some variants are offering a traditional crosshair grille while some others are adopting dual nostrils and Ram badge in the middle of the grille. Now, the 2020 Ram HD will ditch the crosshair grille in favor of the centered Ram’s badge.

2020 Ram HD Interior Spied

Good thing is that the spy shots are showing the interior of the new 2020 Ram HD. The bad thing is the Laramie trim is tested so we can’t see the interior of the base model. However, we can see an 8.4-inch touchscreen and the latest FCA’s Uconnect infotainment system.

We expect the 12-inch touchscreen to be optional while the SiriusXM radio will be standard. Laramie trim is also offering heated and ventilated seats, along with the heated steering wheel. Innovative storage solutions are visible too and the interior will offer more legroom and headroom than before.

2020 Ram HD Powertrain

When it comes to engine options, the 2020 Ram HD Pickup Trucks will continue to offer three engines. A standard gasoline 5.7-liter V8 unit is producing 383 horses and the larger 6.4-liter V8 up to 410 horses. A 6.7-liter Cummins turbodiesel engine is coming in three different power levels.

The six-cylinder engine is offering 930 lb-ft of torque which is more than the rivals from the Ford and Chevrolet. In order to claim class-leading horsepower figures, FCA is willing to bump up additional power in the diesel engine. This should also improve the off-roading experience. However, heavy-duty pickups are too heavy for these types of adventures. Luckily, FCA is offering a Ram Power Wagon model that is a perfect off-road candidate.
