2020 RAM 2500 Release Date, Redesign, Configuration & More | Pickup trucks are meant to be tough and capable. They are meant to handle various light and heavy-duty tasks.
Currently, there are many pickup trucks lineups from various manufacturers on the market. This provides buyers with a lot of pickup trucks to choose from. Of course, not all pickup trucks are equal. Some are better than others.
One of the best lineups is the RAM 2500. RAM 2500 has been in the segment for decades now. If anything, this speaks of its quality. And soon, we are going to see its latest iteration: the 2020 RAM 2500. We will tell you about its possible redesign, performance, features, release date, and price. Let’s start.
2020 RAM 2500 Redesign
There are many rumors that suggest the 2020 RAM 2500 will get some sort of redesign. While we don’t think a total redesign that will change the overall appearance of the pickup truck isn’t likely to happen, we do believe it will get some redesigns that will make it better than before. How will the exterior and interior look like?
So far no one knows exactly how the exterior of the upcoming RAM 2500 will look like. Although that is true, there are many leaked pictures of the testing mule.
At the very least the leaked pictures of the testing mole show us that the prototype of the upcoming RAM 2500 is bigger than the Previous RAM 2500.
Interestingly enough, while the pictures show us that the new RAM 2500 will be bigger than its predecessor, there are rumors that suggest it will be lighter due to its use of lightweight materials.
Unlike the exterior, no one has any clue about the interior. We can expect the interior to look mostly the same as the interior of the Previous RAM 2500. There should be improvements in the materials of the interior.
The upcoming RAM 2500 should get new upholstery and better quality materials. It is, after all, a pickup truck meant for 2020. We also expect it to have new infotainment or at least, an up-to-date one.
It is important to note that, despite being a heavy-duty pickup truck, the RAM 2500 lineup doesn’t neglect the comfort aspect. In fact, up until the 2018 model, the lineup has been able to provide not only a comfortable but also roomy interior. We can expect the upcoming RAM 2500 to continue this trend.
2020 RAM 2500 Specs & Transmission
Performance is perhaps the most important aspect of a pickup truck. So far, the RAM 2500 lineup has shown its prowess in this department. Previous RAM 2500 has got engine options that are more than capable of handling tasks regardless of whether the tasks are light-duty or heavy-duty.
What about the performance of the upcoming RAM 2500? As far as we know, the 2020 RAM 2500 will get at least two engine options. One engine is powered by gasoline while the other is powered by diesel. Both of these engines are very powerful.
The gasoline engine isn’t going to be the 5.7L, V8 engine with an output of up to 383 horsepower, and up to 400 lb-ft of torque. Instead, the upcoming RAM 2500 will get a 6.4L, V8 engine capable of generating up to 410 horsepower with up to 429 lb-ft of torque. For a pickup truck, this engine is certainly powerful enough to do just about any task.
If the gasoline engine isn’t powerful enough for you, you may want to look at the diesel engine. The diesel engine will be a 6.7L, turbocharged inline-six Cummins engine. This diesel engine is even more powerful. It has up to 930 lb-ft of torque. With this much power, it will have over 30,000 pounds hauling capacity. This is a quite impressive number for a pickup truck.
The current RAM 2500 model offers various features. As usual, the features offered depend on the trim. More features are offered on the higher trims. Some examples of features offered in Previous RAM 2500 are a touchscreen display with an infotainment system that is integrated with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, AM/FM radio, Bluetooth, a USB port, keyless entry, heated seats, and so on. We can expect the upcoming RAM 2500 to get these features with minor changes.
2020 RAM 2500 Release Date and Price
Unfortunately, so far there is no exact date for the release of the 2020 RAM 2500. That being said, we can expect it to enter the market somewhere in 2019. There are two reasons for this.
The first is the release of the 2019 RAM 1500 this year. Due to the release of RAM 1500, we aren’t likely to see 2500 this year. The second reason is the upcoming 2500 is meant to be a 2020 model. As such, it will either be released in 2019 or early 2020 at the latest.
As for the price, we can safely predict that the price of the upcoming RAM 2500 will not differ too much with the price of the 2018 model. Most likely, it will be slightly more expensive.
The general trend is that a new model’s price is just a bit more expensive than the previous model. For this reason, we expect the base price of the upcoming RAM 2500 to be in the $37,000 range.
These are what we know so far about the 2020 RAM 2500. It seems the upcoming pickup truck will have redesigns here and there, powerful engine options, as well as many safety features. The RAM 2500 lineup has always been producing reliable pickup trucks. We can expect the upcoming RAM 2500 to offer at least the same level of reliability as its predecessors but hopefully, it will offer more. What do you think?
we would like to mention that the 2020 RAM 2500 will be released a year or less. With this time gap, there may be changes that may happen to the model. What we present here is the information we know so far regarding the upcoming RAM 2500. We also use the previous model, the Previous RAM 2500, as the base of our expectations. The images we used are mere illustrations as there is no image of the model yet.
