It Pays to Own a Ram 1500

April 7th, 2020 by

The costs of buying a vehicle don’t just end with the sticker price, owners also have to factor in insurance costs, registration fees, and most importantly the cost to maintain and repair a vehicle. Thanks to the innovative engineering that went into designing the Ram 1500, the pickup now ranks as one of the cheapest full-size trucks to own and maintain according to automotive experts. 

Nathan O., equal parts auto expert and enthusiast over at, writes: “Its reliability and fuel economy make it an appealing option for car buyers who want the features found in a full-size truck without the costly maintenance and repairs. Its towing power is just as impressive, and its spacious interior and comfortable seats make it one of the best trucks to own in 2020.”

When equipped accordingly, the 2020 Ram 1500 can tow a maximum weight of 12,750 pounds — blowing its competition out of the water. The impressive towing capacity makes the Ram 1500 a perfect pickup on the job and for a weekend getaway. Additionally, the Ram 1500 model can also be equipped with a massive 12-inch touchscreen display, complete with the brand’s exceptional Uconnect infotainment system. The user-friendly Uconnect system allows owners to sync their smartphones and access their favorite apps via Google Android Auto or Apple CarPlay connectivity. 

Noise harshness is at a minimum in the cabin thanks to the Ram 1500’s Active Noise Cancellation technology, including an acoustic windshield and four separate microphones throughout the cabin that detect undesirable noise and emit soundwaves via the speakers to cancel out noise harshness. This feature means that outside road noise does not interfere with what’s going on inside the cabin, nor does it mean that the active noise cancellation features interfere with the pickup’s Harman Kardon audio system.

Additionally, the 2020 Ram 1500 offers buyers cargo space in the bed of the truck that measures 53.7 cubic feet. Those who opt for the available power-release dampened tailgate, complete with the available bed step, can enjoy loading and unloading their gear, equipment, or materials in a much less challenging manner. Convenience and comfort remain keys to the foundation of the 2020 Ram 1500, even when it comes to the truck bed. 

Buyers can also enjoy further customization when it comes to engine options, catered precisely depending on power owners’ needs from their trucks. A 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine is the standard under the hood of the Ram 1500, but there are two more additional options for buyers. There’s an available 5.7-liter HEMI VVT V8 engine that generates 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque. The same HEMI engine can be equipped with the available eTroque mild hybrid system, increasing torque by an additional 130 lb-ft.
