Ram has a well-deserved reputation for producing durable, reliable and attractive trucks year after year. It’s no surprise, then, that the 2020 Ram 1500 has won numerous awards and accolades. According to Ram’s website, Motor Trend, Consumer Guide and IIHS all gave this truck the highest rating. So let’s see what makes the Ram 1500 so pricey.
Is the 2020 Ram 1500 really such a good truck?
Ram has won Motor Trend’s Truck of the Year award three years in a row, which clearly shows that Ram knows how to design and build a truck that drivers will love.
The Ram 1500 also won Motor Trend’s 2019 Truck of the Year award, and the Ram Heavy Duty also won this award previously. Motor Trend calls the 2020 Ram 1500 TRX a new game changer and says it sets a new precedent for what’s possible on and off the road.
The 2020 1500 chassis has a large towing capacity of more than 8,000 pounds. Many customers buy a truck for its power and towing capacity, and the Ram 1500 clearly meets these criteria.
But this impressive car also steers and drives like a sports car, and the professionals at Motor Trend have nothing but praise for the fun it provides.

Consumer Guide editors were no doubt impressed with the 2020 Ram 1500’s wider but lighter frame than previous models.
The 2020 version is about 4 inches longer than previous trucks, but the use of high-strength steel and aluminum makes this truck lighter but even more powerful than its predecessor.
One notable point for this price is that the 2020 Ram 1500 gets excellent gas mileage, especially considering the power it actually makes.
According to Consumer Reports, the V6 engine achieves 25 MPG in the city and 20 MPG on the highway with two-wheel drive, and slightly less with all-wheel drive.
The V8 engine is slightly less fuel efficient, about 15 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway with AWD, and again, slightly less with AWD. For these and other reasons, the Ram 1500 also received the Green Truck of the Year award from Green Car Journal.
The luxurious interior is also hard to ignore. These include a 12-inch touchscreen, heated front and rear seats, and the ability to use Apple CarPlay or Android Auto.
How safe is the 2020 Ram 1500?
Consumers looking for a complete truck should also consider the standard safety features of the vehicle of their choice.
Fortunately, the 2021 Ram 1500 is equipped with plenty of safety innovations that can help prevent accidents and limit physical damage when they do happen. On the IIHS report card, the 2021 Ram 1500 earns the highest score for crashworthiness, i.e., the vehicle’s ability to protect occupants in the event of a collision.
Some versions of the truck earned a few points for minor safety features, but overall this truck stands out for its ability to protect drivers and their families.

APPROPRIATE: In 2020, only one truck was labeled Best Safe Choice, but there’s a catch.
Ram is a major player in the truck world, making it difficult for other truck manufacturers to keep up or even try to compete. Ram always manages to incorporate incredible innovation, practicality, and fun into all of its trucks, but especially into the Ram 1500.
It will certainly be interesting to see what Ram does to try and compete with the Silverado and F-150.
