Here at Jim Cogdill, we are always excited to get drivers behind the wheel of the Ram 1500. It’s been at the top of the pickup truck segment for years now. This year, however, things get even more exciting, and if you’re interested to learn more, you can read on down below about the 2020 Ram 1500 before you get behind the wheel here in Knoxville.
The big change for the 2020 model year is a new 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 engine. Offering an impressive power to efficiency ratio, the engine is capable of pumping out up to 480 lb-ft of torque and allows the 1500 to tow up to 12,560 pounds. Other engine options include a Pentastar® V6, a 5.7-liter HEMI® V8 and a 5.7-liter HEMI® V8 with eTorque.
The Ram 1500 also features a multifunction tailgate. With its unique design, you can open it like your typical tailgate, with it fully folded down, or you can open it with a set of swinging doors. The doors allow one side of the tailgate to remain closed with the other side open so that you can make room for unusually long items while keeping your other items secure. In addition, the RamBox® Cargo Management System gives you access to a hidden cargo area on the side of the truck that is weatherproof, can be lit with LEDs and can be locked for maximum security. It’s a great place to put the tools you need to be the most readily accessible when working on a weekend project or on the job.
We could write thousands of more words on what makes the 2020 Ram 1500 a unique and capable pickup, but we think it’s best if you experience it for yourself. After all, the proof is in the truck, so come see us at Jim Cogdill.
