Performance

There are V-6 and V-8 powertrains available among its different trims and both engines are assisted by a 48-volt hybrid system, but you can have V-8 without the electric support. The 2020 Ram 1500 lineup also includes an optional diesel 3.0-liter V-6 EcoDiesel engine that develops 480 lb-ft of torque, which is more than similar diesel engines on half-ton pickups from Chevy and Ford. Every Ram 1500 has an impressive ride thanks to a rear suspension that uses standard coil springs or optional air springs. Models equipped with the air suspension even have adjustable ride heights that aid fuel efficiency and off-road ability. The rugged Rebel model provides beefier looks and legitimate off-road capability.
