2020 RAM 3500 Review

from the expert editorial team

Ram announced new Black and Night special editions of its 2020 half-ton 1500 and heavy-duty 2500 and 3500 pickup trucks at the 2019 State Fair of Texas. Check out our video to find out the details.

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.

If Chuck Norris was a tuck he would be a 3500 dually limited night edition. I feel like Chuck Norris driving it! I can't even feel my 42ft toy hauler on it. Almost forgot is was back there! Read full review

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
