It’s big, impetuous and clearly old school. The base of the current truck the Ram Heavy Duty goes back almost ten years. We were therefore waiting for the updated version, especially given the quality of the new 2020 Dodge Ram 2500.
Up to this point, the 2020 Dodge Ram 2500 seemed a little more 1500 Buff. However, this will no longer be the case. According to the spy photos, it seems that the truck can share many more design elements with its predecessor than with the new 1500. The profile, as well as the huge wheel arches and the relatively large body, are identical to those of his predecessor. On top of that, the truck also seems to have a grid design similar to the previous model, which is certainly unusual. Unlike the 1500, the 2020 Dodge Ram 2500 does not seem to be equipped with the grill without the cross. Still, we expect Ram to make both trucks moderately similar.
As before, the cabin of the 2020 Dodge Ram 2500 will be for those looking for a work truck. This means that all controls will be installed as part of the controller and some of them will be quite large. Despite this, we hope the truck will have better materials, a slightly more up to date center console with fewer buttons than before, and a new group of digital instruments. The truck is also expected to get the steering wheel, and probably some of its other controls, from the Pacifica, to make the cabin as welcoming as possible.
The current model is equipped with three different engines. It seems that things will not change much with the 2020 version of the truck. However, the naturally aspirated 5.7 liter V8 could be gone. Instead, we can see a new turbocharged or turbocharged V6 engine, possibly with a flexible hybrid system in place, which would develop approximately the same power as the V8. The big improvement would be the fuel consumption that would allow the 2020 Dodge Ram 2500 to become one of the largest trucks on the market. It is likely that the 6.7 liter Cummins will also receive an increase of about 400 horsepower and more than 950 lb-ft of torque, while the 6.4 liter V8 will remain unchanged.
Given the past, it is reasonable to assume that the next 2020 Dodge Ram 2500 will be on the market by the end of 2019. This is about a year after the launch of the 1500 that was the case before. It is likely that the new truck will cost approximately the same as before. The big difference may be at the upper end, but more on this a little later.
