Edmunds has named the 2020 Ram 1500 as its Top-Rated Truck for 2020. The Edmunds Top Rated awards include seven categories and recognize overall excellence in the market today.
Edmunds tests every competitive vehicle on the market and the winner of each category represents the best of that particular segment no matter when the vehicle was launched.
“The Ram 1500 just keeps getting better and is once again our Top-Rated Truck for 2020,” said Alistair Weaver, editor-in-chief, Edmunds. “We still love its technology, interior built quality, ride comfort and capability, but the new EcoDiesel variant introduced this year delivers even stronger fuel economy, more torque and improved towing capability. The Ram 1500 easily remains the most desirable pickup truck on the market.”
The Ram 1500’s all-new 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 leads the half-ton pickup truck segment in torque with 480 lb.-ft. and diesel towing capability of 12,560 pounds. The 2020 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel also leads all trucks in fuel range. Paired with an available 33-gallon fuel tank, Ram’s driving range exceeds 1,000 miles.
New for 2020, the third generation of the turbocharged 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 delivers increased torque and horsepower, along with superb fuel economy and minimal levels of noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) to meet the needs of Ram 1500 owners. In the 2020 Ram 1500, the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 is rated at a best-in-class 480 lb.-ft. of torque at 1,600 RPM, a 14% increase from the previous-generation EcoDiesel V6 that peaks 400 RPM earlier. Horsepower has also increased 8% to 260 horsepower at 3,600 RPM. The 2020 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel is available in all models and configurations, including a first-time offering in the Ram 1500 Rebel.
