Well, not exactly. The American carmaker didn’t present the regular cab models at the Detroit Auto Show this year. The rumors about Ram axing Regular Cab started immediately after the show. However, the fifth-gen Ram 1500 will offer this cab style.
The truth is that the Sterling Heights Assembly Plant doesn’t have the necessary production capacity at the moment. That means the 2020 Ram 1500 Regular Cab won’t be available at the beginning of sales. The smallest Ram’s truck will arrive but in the first quarter of 2020.

2020 Ram 1500 Powertrain
The approaching 2020 Ram 1500 Regular Cab offers two powertrain choices, at least for now. The speculated diesel engine is yet to be announced. The standard 3.6-liter V6 remains and it can produce up to 305 horses and 269 lb-ft of torque. The optional 5.7-liter Hemi V8 is capable of generating 395 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque.
Both engines are proven and reliable. Whatsoever, both engines are present for years now. While we wait for the diesel variant, at least hybrid version is certain to happen. Ram will look to mate standard 3.6-liter V6 and a single electric motor.
This output will provide slightly more power in terms of horses and twists. However, fuel economy is the category where the pickup will benefit the most. Electric motor should add an additional 90 lb-ft of torque. The speculated diesel engine is the 3.0-liter V6 that returns 260 hp and 440 lb-ft of torque.
