In the 2020 model year, there are three engines offered to power the Ram 1500. The standard engine is a 3.6L V6 that produces up to 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque. Ram boosts this engine’s torque and fuel efficiency with technology called the eTorque mild-hybrid system which utilizes a motor-generator and a 48-volt battery.

The third engine is a EcoDiesel 3.0L V6 that creates up to 260 horsepower and 480 lb-ft of torque. Ram mates all three engines with an 8-speed automatic transmission and RWD while 4WD is available.

The upper trim levels add to the Tradesman with smartphone integration, chrome trim, a four-corner air suspension, an 8.4-inch or 12-inch touchscreen, ventilated and heated front seats, and so much more.
