Serving Austin, TX

The Dodge RAM 1500 is one of the most popular pickup trucks in the auto industry for its robust exterior and impressive performance. The model is updated and evolves each year to ensure it continues to accommodate drivers. If you’re trying to decide which generation to purchase, there are a few differences between the 2020 Dodge RAM 1500 and the 2019 Dodge RAM 1500.

Performance

As a heavy-duty truck, the 2020 RAM 1500 is versatile and competitive with its performance. V6 and V8 powertrains are available with both engines assisted by a 48-volt hybrid system. The off-road capability allows the car to tackle various driving challenges with ease. The ride is smooth due to the rear suspension system, which is built with standard coil springs or optional air springs compared to the leaf-spring setup used on other trucks in its class. The light steering and solid brakes offer an enjoyable driving experience when sitting behind the wheel.

The 2019 RAM 1500 has a rare blend of civility and capability to make it ideal to use for commuting or tackling off-road trails. It can reach 60 mph in 6.2 seconds and also stop from 70 mph in 186 feet. Despite its size, it has minimal body roll around corners and delivers sharp steering to allow the driver to feel in complete control of the car. It also absorbs bumps and potholes to guarantee a smooth ride in the cabin.

Appearance

The new RAM is slightly larger than its predecessor and stands out for its protruding and oversized grille. The front looks futuristic and sleek with boxy, horizontal headlamps. The black bumper looks edgy and has an upscale touch with chrome accents. Fog lights are present on the front and increase visibility. The Rebel model looks beefier and is ideal for those who are more adventurous. It’s redesigned and has sleek bodywork to make it resemble a luxury vehicle.

The traditional design of the 2019 RAM 1500 continues to look appealing with oversized windows and a large chrome grille. The grille is broad and blends in seamlessly with the headlamps, creating a modern touch that is still masculine. Chrome side mirrors on each side of the car add extra contrast.

Features

User-friendly features are included in the 2020 RAM like a panoramic sunroof, heated and ventilated seats, premium leather surfaces, and genuine wood accents. A responsive 8.4-inch touchscreen is included on the dash, but consumers can still choose to upgrade to an optional 12.0-inch touchscreen.

Features included in the 2019 RAM 1500 include a 12.0-inch Uconnect infotainment touchscreen, leather accents in the cabin, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a leather steering wheel. The interior proves to be luxe and accommodating, feeling similar to an upscale vehicle.
