2020 RAM 2500 review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2020 Ram Heavy Duty?

The Ram 2500 and 3500 Heavy Duty is a full-size pickup truck aimed at people with serious towing and hauling needs as opposed to those who make the occasional weekend run to the home improvement store. It seats up to six and competes with the Ford Super Duty and Chevrolet Silverado HD. A 410-horsepower, 6.4-liter V-8 engine is standard, while a Cummins turbo-diesel 6.7-liter inline-six that makes as much as 1,000 pounds-feet of torque in the 3500 model is available. 

What’s New on the 2020 Ram Heavy Duty?

A Night Edition for Big Horn and Laramie trim levels includes monochromatic styling, black 20-inch wheels, black badges and a black interior. Lane-keeping assist, blind spot warning with trailer coverage and trailer tire pressure monitoring are available. Long-bed crew-cab trucks can have an optional 50-gallon fuel tank. 

What Features in the 2020 Ram Heavy Duty Are Most Important?

The standard 6.4-liter gas V-8 serves up more than enough capability for most towing and hauling challenges. With 410 hp and 429 pounds-feet of torque, this is the only engine offered for the Power Wagon, the Heavy Duty’s dedicated off-road model. If you choose the high-end Laramie Longhorn or Limited trim, be prepared for a truck interior like you’ve never seen; the materials quality and finishes put many luxury cars to shame.

Should I Buy the 2020 Ram Heavy Duty?

The Ram Heavy Duty should definitely be on your test-drive list if you need a full-size pickup truck for serious work. What sets it apart from the competition is its driving refinement — especially when equipped with the optional rear air suspension — and the quality and design of the Laramie Longhorn’s and Limited’s interiors has raised the bar for all full-size trucks.

Love my truck

I love my truck. If you're in the market for any vehicle, go see Darrick Jones at Corwin Ford In Spokane, WA. Great company, service and you won't be disappointed!

2.1

not worth the money

The seats are hard as a rock the air suspension rides hard, it bucks really bad you can not keep a receiver hitch in because the back up sensors will auto break for you the mirrors are ugly adaptive cruise works great

2.4

Very unhappy since I’ve switched to a ram 2500!

Way too many issues for only having 50,000 miles. Very uncomfortable and Ram does nothing to fix the issues with the truck!!! Customer care is very bad!!!!
