Have the midlevel SE trim. The SE has a sport-tuned suspension for better handling. Don’t concern yourself with a stiff ride, though the SE is still relatively comfortable on the road. The SE is also a great bargain considering all the safety and tech equipment you receive for the money. Finally, the SE can be obtained with a wide selection of options, so you can pick and choose those that are right for your budget.
Crossover SUVs might be all the rage, but there is still something to be said for the tried-and-true midsize sedan. Exhibit A: the 2020 RAM 1500. Coming off a redesign just last year, the 2020 RAM 1500 is just a spacious, fuel-efficient sedan with lots of standard safety equipment and plenty of options to choose from.
As has been the case for a while, you may get the 2020 RAM 1500 with a four-cylinder engine or a more powerful V6, or you can get the miserly 2020 RAM 1500 Hybrid. On the highway, the 2020 RAM 1500 is comfortable and compliant. 2020 RAM 1500 also offers two sporty versions that infuse the 2020 RAM 1500 with a little bit of extra personality. Inside, the 2020 RAM 1500 offers a simple yet feature-packed cabin, especially if you go with one of the upper trim levels. There are many of options to pick from over the way.
The 2020 RAM 1500 is really as competent as they come. It’s well-priced overall, and modern feature content causes it to be supremely an easy task to drive. If you’re trying to find something with a little more class and space than a small sedan, the 2020 RAM 1500 might just be the sedan for you.
The 2020 RAM 1500 is the base trim. It comes with a relatively light load of features that features 16-inch steel wheels, automatic LED headlights, cloth upholstery, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, a rearview camera, keyless entry, a 7-inch touchscreen interface, navigation (GPS Scout Link), Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa connectivity, one USB port, Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a six-speaker sound system.
Standard on every 2020 RAM 1500 Safety Sense, which is a suite of driver assistance features including adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure alert with steering assistance, and automatic high beams.
On another rung up the ladder is the LE.It adds a power-adjustable driver’s seat, 17-inch alloy wheels, a 60/40-split folding back seat and a vehicle alarm. For a sporty dynamic, look at the SE.It adds a sport-tuned suspension, revised steering calibration, 18-inch wheels, simulated-leather upholstery (SofTex) seats and paddle shifters.
You are able to consider the XLE and the XSE trim levels as versions of the LE and the SE, respectively, with a variety of additional comfort and convenience items. Highlights include larger wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, a head-up display, blind-spot monitoring, keyless ignition, a power-adjustable front passenger seat, extra USB ports, a bigger 8-inch touchscreen, and wireless smartphone charging.
Lots of the features on the upper trim levels could be added to the low trim levels as options. Other notable options add a sunroof, a JBL sound system coupled with a built-in navigation system, a head-up display, and a top-down parking camera system.
As sedans go, the 2020 RAM 1500 stuff-hauling credentials are pretty solid. The cargo area is large and opens wide, plus the rear seat is easy to fold down to match longer items. You will find enough cabin storage options to create most people happy. Loading an automobile seat is straightforward, too.
Cabin storage is good but not stellar. The forward center console bin is perfect for concealing items but has a hard, slippery floor, so they slide around noisily. The console bin at your elbow is really a decent size, and you can find modest door pockets in leading and rear that are great for small water bottles only.
The 2020 RAM 1500 includes a large trunk, and the 60/40-split folding back seat with trunk-mounted release handles allow it to be an easy task to expand the space. Loading groceries or luggage is helped out by the wide opening and a low liftover height.
Child safety seat accommodation
It’s super easy to mount a vehicle seat, with obvious and easy to get at lower anchors and package tray-mounted tether point, both under plastic covers. There’s room enough so the front seat need not be scooted completely forward.
