Just like with any other vehicle, if you are interested in a pickup, it is important to choose the right truck that has everything you need. If you want more power than you are likely to find in a standard full-size model, without going quite as far as the most powerful ones available, then the 2020 Ram 2500 is a fantastic choice. This is a heavy-duty pickup that is the perfect middle road for a full-size model, giving you more power than a standard 1500, without delivering quite as much as something like the Ram 3500.
Because power and performance are the name of the game with a hard working, heavy-duty truck, you would expect the Ram 2500 to have plenty to offer, and it does. You have two different engines to choose from, both of which are incredibly powerful, so you can pick between a standard gas engine and a turbo diesel. When properly configured, you can get more than 4,000 lbs of payload capacity with this truck or more than 19,000 lbs of maximum towing capacity. There are also three different cab configurations available: a regular cab, crew cab, and mega cab to meet your needs.
Inside the 2020 Ram 2500, you will find one of the most sophisticated and luxurious interiors of any pickup on the road. The available 12-inch infotainment display is absolutely stunning and provides you with information about audio, navigation, and much more. And with active noise cancellation and an available Harman Kardon premium audio system, driving the Ram 2500 is a true joy.

You have two different engines to choose from with the 2020 Ram 2500. This gives you the perfect blend of flexibility without offering so many options that you can feel like you are missing out by not picking a particular engine. You have either a gas or a diesel engine to choose from, so it really comes down to what you are looking for.
The gas option for the Ram 2500 is a powerful 6.4L HEMI V8 engine that provides you with up to 410 hp and 429 lb-ft of torque. This engine is truly a beast and comes paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission for a smooth and responsive driving experience. Of the two engines offered, this one has the greatest payload capacity available, so keep that in mind as you consider your options.
There is also a 6.7L Cummins Turbo Diesel I-6 engine available, which delivers up to 370 hp and 850 lb-ft of torque. This engine comes paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission that is optimized for the best driving experience possible. The maximum payload available with this engine is a bit lower than with the standard gas option, but it has a significantly higher maximum towing capacity when properly configured.
There are a lot of different factors that will impact the maximum payload and towing capacity you get with your 2020 Ram 2500. In general, you will need to determine how much towing and payload you need, and then choose the right model that will meet those needs. This typically requires focusing on either the highest payload or the greatest towing possible, as there are going to be limits on one or the other.
The engine you choose has a major impact on the maximum towing and payload you get, so keep that in mind as you consider all of your options. For maximum towing, you are going to want to choose the available 6.7L Cummins Turbo Diesel engine, which has a maximum towing capacity of up to 19,680 lbs, when paired with a regular cab and 4x2 drivetrain. The lowest available towing with this engine is 15,690 lbs if you get it with a mega cab. Even with the 6.4L HEMI V8 engine, you can still get up to 17,540 lbs of towing capacity with the proper configuration.
In terms of payload, on the other hand, the HEMI V8 engine actually outshines the incredible Turbo Diesel option. When properly configured with a regular cab and 4x2 drivetrain, you can get up to 4,010 lbs of maximum payload capacity with the HEMI V8. With the Turbo Diesel engine, and the proper configuration, the greatest payload capacity you can get with the Ram 2500 is 3,160 lbs. So, as you can see, the difference can be fairly significant, which is why it is so important to determine what matters most to you, and then choose the right options to meet your needs.
Ram trucks are known not only for their tremendous power and performance, but also for the rich and luxurious interiors they provide. In the past, choosing a heavy-duty truck meant you were stuck with a fairly barebones experience in terms of interior comfort and technology. That is far from true today, as the 2020 Ram 2500 not only delivers incredible power but also surrounds you with sophistication and amazing technology.
As you would expect, a number of features are standard or available depending on the trim level you choose. The starting trim, the Tradesman, includes standard air conditioning, a 3-inch driver information display, and a urethane steering wheel. It has a 5-inch infotainment display, a standard 4-speaker sound system, and includes a compass and temperature display in the radio system. The Tradesman has standard vinyl seating with manual adjust and keyless, push-button start functionality, perfect for a no-frills work truck.
If you look at the highest trim, however, which is the Limited, then things are quite different. The Limited features dual-zone automatic temperature control, along with a 7-inch driver information display. You get power-adjustable pedals with a memory feature, as well as a leather-wrapped steering wheel with wood details and mounted audio and cruise controls. The Limited also features a stunning 12-inch infotainment display with a wireless charging pad, and an available 17-speaker premium Harman Kardon surround sound system. You get premium leather bucket front seats and Limited-specific premium leather and wood details throughout the interior, as well as premium slush mats with removable carpet inserts.
Even if you are primarily interested in a truck that can work hard and keep you going throughout the week, you still want to make sure it can help protect you too. The standard and available safety features on the 2020 Ram 2500 are excellent and help make it one of the safest, hardest working trucks on the road. Some of these will depend on the trim level and packages you choose, of course, so keep that in mind when picking the right model for you.
Available safety features on the Ram 2500 include blind spot monitoring with rear cross-path detection, which helps keep you safe when backing up or if someone approaches you and likes to hide in your blind spot. There is also an available full-speed forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, which alerts you when a collision seems imminent and can apply the brakes to minimize damage or even avoid a collision. Adaptive cruise control is available so you can use it even in high-traffic situations where it will maintain a safe distance with other vehicles for you.
There is a hill descent control feature available, included with the off-road package, and an available back-up alarm that can warn others when you are in reverse. Other available safety features include front and rear park assist, which alert you when you are close to an object while parking, and a lane departure warning system that notifies you if you begin to wander from your lane. All of these features and more come together to make the Ram 2500 incredibly safe on the road and help protect you and your loved ones.
