The Energizer Ram Keeps Going
It is starting to turn heads folks, the 2020 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel is getting some good reports. The original Ram 1500 was also a truck to race to high acclaim (and awards) and this new EcoDiesel seems revving to follow in it's tire tracks. The green nature of this contender is what is getting everyone so excited. One test driver who drove half way across the state a number of times said that when he looked at the fuel gauge it barely registered the miles travelled. That’s my kind of fuel economy! I hesitate to liken it to the energizer bunny, but if the fur fits, wear it! That is exactly why there has been such anticipation around this new green machine and 2020 Ram 1500 fans will be thrilled to be able to pick one up at the Toronto, Mississauga, Oakville, Burlington, Brampton, Barrie and Peel dealerships.
The driver in question likened the 2020 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel to a normal gas HEMI V8s with an efficient diesel engine that makes the whole difference. He remarked on the kind of cab you could design with all the available options and you have as he put it “a truck that can tackle very long roads and carry its peeps in serenity.” Sounds like a winner to me! Yet there is so much more to be exhilarated over. Ram has a kind of overall aesthetic that we have come to recognize and love. It is the Ram’s trade-mark look that is an efficient, sleek semi style. In particular this generation of Ram trucks has an even more aerodynamic body, yet it still delights us with the low front fenders we first saw in 1994. The Laramie Longhorn trim, for example rides you in style with the saddle leather seats, wood on the dash and doors, wood-and-leather steering wheel and touches of bronze. There are some other truck makers that use cheap vinyl coverings on the dash that may look pretty but are not designed for durability. This in combination with the accompanying heated/cooled front seats, heated rear seats, heated steering wheel, and roomie center console make the Ram practical as well as pleasing to the senses.
The 2020 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel is certainly following in its predecessor's footsteps. And I don’t know about you but it's that shiny chrome grille bearing the letters RAM that really gets me, and the LED lights on the corner don’t hurt either. The Ram 1500 is known to have enough payload capacity to haul that crew of yours with ample space for legroom. However it is the 60/40 split tailgate that gives you the option to fold down as usual, or open on side hinges which allows a lot of new utility to clean. The simplified loading gear makes moving things off the ground that much easier as well. Also the lockable “RamBox” to hold your tools, camping gear, firewood or anything else you need to haul around makes it much more efficient.
However there are also the technological attributes to consider that the public has come to appreciate about Ram. They include the following;
Tech Specs of the Ram 1500
- 12-inch tablet-style touchscreen for audio, navigation, and phone.
- Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Bluetooth smartphone adapters
- Adaptive cruise
- Forward collision warning with auto brake
- Lane keep assist

Of course the more Heavy Duty Ram versions use a Cummins engines, but the 2020 Ram 1500 is rocking a more green version of engine power under the hood that seems to do well traversing down town or highways and not break a sweat. The 3.0-liter turbo V6, with an 8-speed automatic transmission, creates 260 horsepower 480 lb.-ft. of torque which can darn well move 12,560 lbs. of a trailer full of what-have-you. All this not only makes the 2020 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel outfitted for the long haul but with the fuel economy ratings of 21/29-MPG city/highway with four-wheel-drive 22/32-MPG rear-drive, it will definitely be ready to fuel the trip.
Yes the Ram has the look and the power from top to bottom and ready for most anything you can lay on it. The Ram 1500 EcoDiesel is being hailed as the best of the best pickup on the road today with the superior air suspension system which can be moved up to accommodate off-road adventures, as well as lower for guiding under hitches. And with aerodynamics that will blow away the other trucks on the highway they best get out of the way. Even when driving on rugged terrain, rough pavement and bridge ramps that other trucks would cringe at The Ram 1500 barely registers. There is a new truck in town and it has upped the anti in standards. It’s like a luxury SUV that can haul ass and have the advantage of a mid-size crossover with its fuel economy. It doesn’t get better than this folks! But I will lay it all out for you, so feast your eyes on these specs and may you be lucky enough to get into the drivers seat for yourself!
