Ram 1500 and Ram HD Models Named to Kelley Blue Book Resale Value Awards List

February 14th, 2020 by

Kelley Blue Book (KBB)  just named the Ram 1500 and Ram Heavy Duty models to its Best Resale Value Awards list. This latest win is the ninth consecutive year where a vehicle from parent company Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) earns a nod on KBB’s prestigious list. Three FCA vehicles made the cut on the 10 Best Resale Value Awards list, tying the most spots of any other automaker. 

“Since the 2019 launch of its new truck, Ram has realized significant increases in retail sales. Consumers’ renewed interest in Ram’s light- and heavy-duty trucks has also been reflected in higher used car values, which results in the inclusion of the Ram 1500 and Ram Heavy Duty variants in Kelley Blue Book’s Top 10 Best Resale Value list,” said Eric Ibara, Director, Residual Values, Kelley Blue Book. 

The coveted awards are based on projections from KBB’s Official Residual Value Guide, and are then decided on by a knowledgeable staff of automotive analysts. The prestigious Best Resale Value Award list is the publication’s way to honor vehicles that are expected to retain the largest proportion of their respective original price after five years of ownership. Not too shabby when it comes to the Ram 1500 and Ram HD models. 

Ram 1500

The 2020 Ram 1500 is a no-compromise pickup often praised for its durability, technology, convenience, and efficiency. Thanks to its 12,750 pounds of towing capacity and 2,300 pounds of payload, the Ram 1500 offers capability figures never-before offered in a pickup. There’s even an eTorque mild hybrid system that improves the pickup’s fuel efficiency, whether it’s powered by a V6 or V8 engine configuration. The 2020 Ram 1500 also offers buyers the Uconnect 4C infotainment system with an available 12-inch touchscreen display complete with split-screen capability, exclusive content from SiriusXM with 360L, and 360-degree camera views for trailer management.

Some of the active safety and security systems available on the 2020 Ram 1500 include adaptive cruise control, Ready Alert Braking, Forward Collision Warning, and Blind-Spot Monitoring. Additionally, the 2020 Ram 1500 also features twice the interior cargo space when compared to the competitive models. Class-leading riding and handling is accomplished via an exclusive link-coil rear suspension system equipped with optional Active-level four-corner air suspension. 

Ram Heavy Duty

The 2020 Ram Heavy Duty shines in its class thanks to its refined comfort features and overall prowess. The biggest option on the Ram Heavy Duty lineup is the segment’s first 1,000 lb-ft of torque engine, the refined Cummins I-6 Turbo Diesel. Just like on the Ram 1500, class-leading riding and handling are offered by the exclusive link-coil rear suspension and optional rear air suspension. Other benchmarks set by the Ram Heavy Duty lineup include the use of luxury materials, innovation, technology — all taking the pickup well above industry standards and transforming them into a fleet of people movers.
