It’s always hard to get even higher when you’re already on top of the world. As a class-leader, Ram 2500 had that hard task recently but it managed to deal with it, so the new generation is even better. Of course, the first thing that comes to mind is that impressive diesel version, which now comes even better. The 2020 Dodge Ram 2500 Diesel represents the second production year of the new generation, so it’s obvious that there are no bigger changes to mention.
Still, that doesn’t change the fact that we are talking about probably the best 3/4-ton pickup on the market. It offers impressive towing ratings, but also comes with plenty of tech features and the most luxurious cabin in the class. Add to this a pretty great ride quality and there is practically nothing to complain about, we would say.
2020 Dodge Ram 2500 Diesel Design and Features
The 2020 Dodge Ram 2500 Diesel comes as the second production year of the current generation, so there are no bigger changes on the list of novelties. It continues in the same way, with all those changes that were introduced last year. This particularly refers to the new platform and particularly chassis, which is lighter but also stiffer now. That provides even better performances than before, with even improved fuel efficiency. Of course, there is a new styling as well, which resembles the standard 1500 model.
There is a new grille layout, but the overall shape looks much more muscular, which seems natural, considering that we are talking about a heavy-duty pickup truck. Of course, there are various appearance packages in the offer as well, including the amazing 2020 Dodge Ram 2500 Diesel Black Edition.
Big changes didn’t come on the inside either. Obviously, the recent redesign was generous in terms of the interior redesign as well, so the new model continues in the same way. This means you may count on a spacious and functional cabin, which comes with impressive quality. This especially refers to higher trims, which are equipped with super-fine soft-touch materials, pretty much on par with luxury SUVs you can find on the market. Also, there is an impressive list of tech features, starting from the available 12-inch touchscreen.
As we already mentioned, the 2020 Dodge Ram 2500 Diesel might come with a couple of additions in terms of standard equipment, but the overall trim level organization and organization of equipment groups will definitely remain the same. That means you may count on familiar models in the offer.
The offer starts with the well-known Tradesman, which is a pretty basic version of this truck. It comes with steel wheel, air conditioning, a small 5-inch touchscreen and just a few more pieces on the list of standard equipment.
Things are notably better in the Big Horn, which adds a couple of quite useful features, starting from bigger wheels, power accessories, integrated trail brake controller, power-sliding rear window, remote ignition etc.
The Laramie adds things like power-adjustable front passenger seat, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, an upgraded driver information display, a 10-speaker surround-sound audio system, a bigger touchscreen and more.
When it comes to the 2020 Dodge Ram 2500 Diesel Longhorn, the list of standard equipment includes things like upgraded leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, wood interior and steering wheel trim, heated rear seats, navigation, driver memory settings and much more.
Finally, the Limited brings even more luxury, as you may count on exclusive black leather upholstery, unique styling details, 20-inch wheels and more.
Those who prefer something off-road-capable can pick the Power Wagon, which comes with features like all-terrain tires, off-road shock absorbers, tow hooks, skid plates, a manual transfer case, electronically locking front and rear differentials, hill descent control and many more off-road goodies.
2020 Dodge Ram 2500 Diesel Engine
Under the hood, you may count on pretty familiar things. There is a well-known 6.7-liter inline-six from Cummins, which features a max output of 370 horsepower and 850 pound-feet of torque. It comes in pair with a 6-speed automatic transmission, which sends power to either rear or all wheels.
Although it isn’t the most powerful engine in the class, it provides impressive ratings in terms of towing and overall capability. The 2020 Dodge Ram 2500 Diesel max towing capacity continues to impress, as the best-equipped versions can tow more than 19.000 pounds. The max payload capacity goes over 2.500 pounds. Those are impressive numbers for the class.
