Drivers here in David Corry Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram know a good truck when they see one. That's why the 2020 RAM 1500 is so popular around here. At David Corry Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, we would like to talk about your options when it comes to power and performance in this truck.

The big news in 2020 is that the optional EcoDiesel six-cylinder has gotten even better. It gives you 260 horsepower and a hearty 480 pound-feet of torque. The extra oomph is due to the more efficient turbocharger and other tweaks made for this year. This very impressive engine has a maximum towing capacity of 12,560 pounds.

Not a fan of diesel? Standard on most models is a 3.6-liter six-cylinder with eTorque that will generate 305 horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque. This setup can tow up to 7,730 pounds, which is more often than not enough for drivers in the Erie and Warren areas.

For those that do need more power, there is also a 5.8-liter eight-cylinder available. You can have this engine with or without the eTorque system. Either setup will give you 395 horsepower and 410 pound-feet of torque. The difference is in towing capacity. Without the eTorque, max towing is a very respectable 11,610 pounds. Adding eTorque means a max capacity of 12,750 pounds.

All four engine options find themselves paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. This transmission utilizes a mild hybrid system to ensure smooth, efficient shifts every time. It also helps boost the fuel economy of the truck.

On top of the engine, the 2020 RAM 1500 has several other features aimed at giving you superior performance. The active air dam, for example, helps to reduce drag. It does so by automatically lowering down 2.5 inches once the truck reaches 30 miles per hour. All models are equipped with this feature if they do not have the Active-Level Four Corner Air Suspension. This highly-advanced suspension actually lowers the vehicle at highway speeds. The result? Less drag and great fuel efficiency for you RAM 1500.
