Which should you buy, 2019 or 2020? 2020 if you want the diesel or a blacked-out truck; otherwise, a 2019 will do in most cases (if you can find one)
The 2020 Ram 1500 doesn’t get a redesign or a refresh for this model year, but that doesn’t mean that the half-ton pickup truck has been resting on its laurels. Not only did it snag our Luxury Car of the Year award for 2020, it also sees changes aplenty. The biggest one is found under the hood: a new diesel powertrain that excitingly will be available across all of the truck’s trim levels.
