2020 RAM 1500: Superior Power for Towing Ease

A Top Performer Across the Board

The 2020 RAM 1500 provides a significant amount of power and punch to handle virtually any towing need. If you are looking for a RAM 1500 for sale that is comfortable, fully-featured, and designed to be easy to handle, the 2020 RAM 1500 has that and much more to offer, as you’ll see when you visit Naples Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM. If you’re after easy hauling for the long haul and you want ample safety and security with it, we’re confident this vehicle will impress you.

The best way to find out is to come in to see your RAM 1500 dealer at Naples Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM for a test-drive.

Big Towing Capacity from a Powerful Engine

The 2020 RAM 1500 offers a full 12,750 pounds of towing capacity. That is enough to tow just about everything including a moderately-sized watercraft, trailer, or another vehicle. This power comes from the vehicle’s 5.7-L HEMI® V8 engine. It also features eTorque technology, which enhances its ability to pull whatever you need it to. This feature replaces the traditional alternator on its HEMI® engine. Instead, it features a 48-volt battery-powered and belt-driven motor generator. This modification from previous RAM 1500s gives it more payload and towing capability from previous models.

Keep in mind the RAM 1500 offers several engine options, including the noted 5.7-HEMI® V8 with eTorque, a 5.7-L HEMI® V8, the 3.6-L PENTASTAR® V6 engine with eTorque, and the 3.0-L EcoDiesel V6 engine.

Smart Tech to Manage Your Tow

While pulling a big load is important for most drivers of the RAM 1500, making the entire process easy to manage is even better. This model of the RAM 1500 comes with a number of tech upgrades that make that possible. Blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-path and automatic trailer detection is at the heart of that process. It alerts you when someone is in your blind spot, minimizing the risk of hitting them. At the same time, this feature automatically senses the length of the trailer so it can account for it when sending alerts to you.

The available LaneSense lane departure warning – plus system is an added benefit as it helps guide your vehicle to avoid drifting. The class-exclusive Active-Level four corner air suspension system enhances performance, too. It includes auto load leveling and ParkView rear back up camera, which makes hooking up your trailer or boat simple.

Next-Gen Transmission

With the 2020 RAM 1500, drivers also benefit from the class-exclusive TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission. This uses the next-generation eTorque mild hybrid system. For those who want better drivability even when towing, the 2020 RAM 1500 offers that through this transmission upgrade. It allows for automatic handling and shift optimization. It’s easier to drive without any drop in performance.

Safety and Security

It’s impossible not to mention the 2020 RAM 1500’s safety and security features. Again, this makes driving the vehicle easy but also improves overall reliability when pulling anything heavy. Adaptive cruise control with stop and go is an available feature. For towing, check out the available electronic stability control, which ensures there’s proper control over the engine power and brakes even when you are moving across rough terrain. Electronic roll mitigation and hill start assist are also available to enhance towing ease.
