The Ram 2500 HD: 2020 – MotorTrend Truck Of The Year®
This award-winning rig can handle everything from dirty jobs to family trips. What’s more, it offers the best interior in the segment with luxury-car details and an impressive list of tech features. These trucks are not only the quietest, most comfortable, and most refined heavy-duty pickups Ram has ever made, they’re also the most powerful. The brand’s legendary Cummins turbo-diesel engine packs 1000 lb-ft of torque—more than its heavy-duty competitors from Chevy and GMC.
Heavy-duty trucks have transformed in the past decade. No longer are these massive haulers merely appliances – most, if not all, modern HD trucks offer lavish leather-appointed cabins, lots of technology, and highly advanced powertrains. And the 2020 Ram 2500 is certainly no exception.
The Ram 2500’s interior isn’t any less eye-catching. Again, like the smaller 1500, the 2500 gets the available 12.0-inch Uconnect central touchscreen (versus the standard 5.0-inch screen or the optional 8.4-incher) housed in a high-quality, gold-colored surround. The Ram Laramie wears the subtle yet stylish black leather upholstery on the seats, dash, and center console, and there’s even a nice embroidered Ram logo atop the center armrest.
The Ram 2500’s cabin rivals that of many luxury cars we’ve driven. The leather has the same high-quality feel and finish as something more upscale, and both of those buckets offer heating and ventilation. There’s a ton of cargo space; the huge center console can hold up to a 15-inch laptop. And with 40.9 inches of headroom and legroom, there’s plenty of passenger space, too.
Like many trucks in the segments, the rear bench isn’t any less roomy. With 40.3 inches of headroom and 43.1 inches of legroom, it rivals alternatives like the Ford Super Duty and GMC Sierra HD (and puts most full-size ultra-luxury sedans to shame). Plus, the Ram 2500 offers the only reclining rear bench in the entire class.
Ram touts active noise cancelling, and for the most part, this truck is very quiet on-road – quieter than most rivals.
Few setups are as good as the 12.0-inch touchscreen in this Ram. The massive screen runs the latest version of FCA’s intuitive Uconnect. The setup offers crystal clear graphics, iPhone-like touch responsiveness, and both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. Plus, it’s one of the few screens in any car that has split functionality, meaning you can run CarPlay on the top portion of the screen and any of the baked-in functions on the lower half.
Additional equipment includes a 7.0-inch digital display within the instrument cluster, a wireless charger, located just in front of the center console, and three 115-volt outlets. Meanwhile, the Laramie Level 2 Equipment Group adds two USB ports up front and a 17-speaker Harman Kardon sound system.
VERDICT: THE KING HAS BEEN CROWNED – THE 2020 RAM 2500
LARAMIE® – Heavy-duty attitude, with the welcome comfort and convenience that define sophistication. A luxury pickup with the towing and hauling capability of a big rig.
