Remember the time when pickup trucks were only used as a tool? We do. Now, the times have changed, a lot. The 2020 Ram 1500 Limited is perhaps the best possible example. Of course, next to the competitors from Ford and Chevrolet. Nowadays, pickup trucks have become a thing of luxury.
Now, on top of that, you can buy a luxurious version of luxury. Ram 1500 Limited is very premium and it is the range-topping trim level. Everything on this truck, especially from the inside, looks perfect. However, it looks like the only focus is a luxury. This pickup truck has so many pros and cons.
2020 Ram 1500 Limited Changes
New Ram 1500 will look upscale and attractive. However, if you want real luxury, the 2020 Ram 1500 Limited is the answer you are looking for. All trim levels will get some sorts of the same upgrades. For the start, the vehicle is 230 pounds lighter. The front end will host the front air dam for the first time. The styling looks very modern on every trim level. On the other hand, Ram 1500 Limited looks very premium. It comes with unique 20-inch polished silver wheels.
Moreover, body-colored features such as doors and bumpers are available. LED is everywhere. LED headlights, LED taillights and LED Bed Lighting. Power running boards are standard, just like the premium chrome grille. Interestingly, RAM ditched the crosshair grille in favor of six-sided grille.
The upcoming 2020 Ram 1500 Limited pickup offers numerous unique color options. There will be seven different exterior paints. For the start, Granite Crystal Met and Ivory Tri-Coat are available. On top of that, you can opt for the Diamond Black Crystal Pearl option. Delmonico Red Pear, Patriot Blue Pearl-Coat and Billet Silver Metallic Clear-Coat are also in the offer. One of the newest colors in the Ram’s color palette is the Maximum Steel Met Clear-Coat. No matter which exterior paint you opt for, the Limited model will look perfect.
Here comes the interesting part. It seems like the Ram missed the point of a pickup truck. Even the base model looks pretty and upscale. However, the 2020 Ram 1500 Limited is another level of luxury. It comes with so many pros and cons. The manufacturer focused solely on luxury details rather than on practicality of the interior. For the start, new 12.0-inch touchscreen looks amazing. Not only that, this unit is so easy to use. It is a very functional display that looks extremely modern.
It comes with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Also, other important functions and information are visible. Interior of the Limited model is perhaps the best interior you can find in the pickup truck segment. Basically, all of the surfaces are covered in leather and Alcantara materials. Open pore wood, shiny piano-black accents, and chrome details are making Ram 1500 looks like new Mercedes S-Class. On the other hand, new floor mats are laughable. It looks pretty, we must admit. However, the point is to cover the floor. Most parts of the carpet are unprotected, so what is the point of the floor mats. Despite that, new mats are perfectly fitting the interior theme.
Engine Performance and Towing Capacity
The upcoming 2020 Ram 1500 Limited will offer two gasoline engines. A 3.6-liter V6 that produces 305 horses and 270 lb-ft of torque is standard.

Even a 3.0-liter EcoDiesel could be in the offer for the 2020 model.
This unit cranks out 260 hp and 440 lb-ft of twist. Besides that, the hybrid variant will be available as well. The new hybrid system will get around 90 additional lb-ft of torque for the base engine. Optional V8 will get up to 130 lb-ft of torque. No matter which option you choose, an 8-speed automatic gearbox comes as standard. Maximum towing capacity is rated at 11,540 pounds.
2020 Ram 1500 Limited Price and Release Date
