Fiat-Chrysler Automobile Group, owner of Ram brand, is preparing the new generation of heavyweights. The spy photos are there to show a glimpse of what 2020 Ram HD will look like. Of course, we can’t see everything. A normal pickup truck and a single rear wheel pickup had a minimum camouflage when it last appeared. The lights and the grille undergo cosmetic changes.
We still don’t know what’s going on under the hood. But there is no doubt that Ram Cummins diesel unit adopts a position identical to that of the previous edition. Ram 3500 dually is one of the most powerful trucks in the United States. The race for best pickup continues in the new season, however, as Ford Super Duty and Chevy Silverado HD models are planned for 2020. Of course, the three largest companies in Detroit will present their latest product in their hometown at the 2019.
SPIED-What will 2020 Ram look like?
There are hints on the new 2020 Ram HD. The company does not disclose the details. They will not do so until the official release date. During this time, the CAF is testing 2020 Ram HD series. According to the photos of espionage, the size will remain the same. Apart from the test mule, you can see the new grille hiding under panels covering the vehicle. In addition, the headlights of the new Dodge Ram HD 2020 trucks will be different. The front bumper will join the changes made to the recast. At the rear, new taillights refresh the next generation HD truck. In addition, we believe that the company will present various options for the tailgate. With that, access to the bed will be easier.
2020 Ram HD Interior, Cabin Feature
Although there are photos of espionage of the cabin of Ram HD 2020, we do not see much. Mule Test is not yet equipped with everything that buyers will find in the production model. In addition, the new 2500/3500 Ram microphones will be available in a few versions. High-end, Laramie Longhorn and Limited still offer high-end options, such as leather seats and multizone air conditioning.
2020 Ram HD, Ram 2500 vs RAM 3500
Two models are in the range 2020 Ram HD. As we already know, this is Ram 2500 and Ram 3500. Although they are almost identical, there are some differences. The main is the towing capacity and the exits of the engine. Both offer two petrol units and one Cummins diesel unit. For the 3500 HD 2020 Ram, this one can create more torque and power. When we convert 15 additional CV’s and a 100 lb-ft of torque bonus, the 3500 truck gets a towing capacity of more than 31 000 lbs. It is also possible with a double rear wheel configuration. The new Ram 3500 2020 dually will fight the Silverado 3500 HD and the Ford F-350 to get the best torque.
Specifications of 2020 Ram HD engine
Under the hood of 2020 Ram HD, there is a 6.7-litre Cummins turbodiesel V8. Depending on the configuration, the engine can create powers of 350, 370 or 385 hp. For the next generation Dodge Ram heavyweight segment, Cummins could reach 400 horsepower. More importantly, a high-performance version of the same plant can provide more than 900 lb-ft of torque. In 2020, the Ram 3500 dually will offer 930 lb-ft of torsion. A standard configuration is capable of creating 660 lb-ft or 800 lb-ft.
The towing capacity of RAM 2020 will reach more than 32 000 pounds if Ram Cummins engine reaches 400 hp and 930 lb-ft. Currently, the maximum transport capacity is 31 820 pounds. Dodge Ram 2500 HD 2020 will offer 18 000 pounds with superior performance.
Heavy trucks of the next generation could drop a 5.7-litre unit. This Hemi engine is already used by some SUVs and the mule in working order requires a more powerful transmission. Yields of 385 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque and a towing capacity of 14 000 pounds are simply not attractive to serious buyers. Those who prefer diesel fuel will instead choose a 6.4-litre V8. With it, the 2500 and 3500 Ram of 2020 can draw 16 300 pounds. The engine develops 410 horsepower and 430 lb-ft of torsion.
New transmission 2020 Dodge Ram HD
So far, a six-speed transmission with manual/electronic mode on the fly was the only gearbox for the heavy-duty truck segment of the Ram trucks. Now the new generation makes changes in this section. A new eight-speed automatic transfer box will increase efficiency and fuel economy.
It’s always a secret that’s going to deliver it. But there are only two companies capable of satisfying the requirements of such an order. An eight-speed gearbox comes from ZF or Aisin. ZF already provides some CAF models with such a transmission, while the other company is the current manufacturer of HD Ram transfer boxes.
2020 Ram 2500 Trucks Power Wagon
The two trucks in 2020 Ram HD range will offer many levels of finish. However, we stand out. Ram 2500 Power Wagon 2020 is an all-terrain truck with special upgrades for better towing under difficult conditions. It only uses gasoline engines. The unique pieces that we do not find on other Ram HD trucks are locking differentials and an electronically controlled front stabilizer bar or a warning winch. Special wheels with all terrain tires are installed on this pickup. Bilstein provides new shock absorbers, while the truck rises almost two inches. The gas mapping is not the same as for the other versions, as the Ram 2500 Power Wagon 2020 needs low values for better performance on mud, sand and other terrain.
2020 Ram HD Release Date, Prices
It is hard to believe that we will not find everything on 2020 Ram HD 2020 in Detroit in January. The biggest scene in the automotive world is the perfect place for such a model. Large companies are taking the best advantage of the heavy vehicle segment. These trucks are therefore given special treatment. In addition, the 2020 series Dodge Ram HD is entering the new generation. There is therefore no better solution than to be included in the 2019. In any case, the first buyers will have to wait a few months before the date of exit of the fairs.
The prices are still unknown. The three big companies are preparing new models and none of them want to be the first to reveal their prices. In this battle, the real winners are the buyers. It is possible that the price changes are minimal. Thus, 2500 Ram base could again play from $34 000 dollars.
