Check Out How the 2020 Ram 1500 Compares the 2019 Model


Ram hasn't earned its place as a mainstay of the modern market by being lazy. It's gotten to where it is by going the extra mile. With every new model, it strives to make its trucks better.

The Ram 1500 is a perfect example. In 2019, the Ram 1500 underwent a major revision. It implemented a brand new chassis and offered an enhanced suite of feature and performance options designed to help it stand out from the competition.

It would have been easy for Ram's engineers just to shrug and call it a day with the 2020 truck. Instead, they implemented even more improvements, packing in fresh options that built off the upgrades from the year before.

What's New About the 2020 Ram 1500 in Traverse City?


Let's take a look at both the 2019 and 2020 Ram 1500 and see what's changed in the space of a year.

In the market for half-ton trucks, the Ram 1500 holds a place as a pillar. With high-performance options suited to work, play and everything in-between, it should serve as no surprise that it's become the truck of choice for many Charlevoix and Kalkaska drivers.

  • The 2019 model raised the Ram 1500's high-performance standards to new heights. With a lighter-weight chassis, it drove smoother on the road while also squeezing more performance out of its ample powertrain options.
  • The 2020 model expands on the performance options offered by the 2019 model. In 2019 you had a choice of two powertrains: a 305 horsepower V6 and a 395 horsepower V8. The 2020 Ram 1500 adds access to a powerful 3.0-liter turbodiesel V6. This impressive engine can produce up to 260 horsepower with an impressive 480 pounds-feet of torque.
  • The 2019 and 2020 Ram 1500 trucks can both come equipped with powerful 4x4 systems for extra traction.

Equipment and Features

One way that recent-year Ram 1500 models have stood out is their commitment to delivering more than great performance on its own. Both the 2019 Ram 1500 and the 2020 Ram 1500 have an array of impressive features available.

  • The 2019 and 2020 Ram 1500 trucks both come equipped with impressive media controls. They utilize the Uconnect infotainment system, which offers compatibility with the popular Apple CarPlay and Android Auto apps. You'll also have a choice of touchscreens, with the largest one measuring a full 12 inches.
  • If comfort's your concern, both the 2019 and 2020 Ram 1500 will send you home happy. They can both come with spacious, passenger-friendly interiors. These interiors, in turn, can come decked with welcome amenities like leather upholstery and heated/ventilated seating.


If safety on the road is your priority, the Ram 1500 is built to serve. The newest models offer a rich selection of active safety gear that can help you avoid accidents before they happen.

  • The 2019 Ram 1500's safety suite includes options ranging from blind-spot warnings and automatic emergency braking to adaptive cruise control and lane-keeping assistance.
  • The 2020 Ram 1500's safety options mirror many of its predecessor's. There are some areas where it improves, however, on what's available in the 2019 truck. Its blind-spot warnings can come with trailer towing integration. You can also enjoy a new smart headlight feature, which automatically turns off your high beams if another car's in your path.
