Trim Levels of the RAM 1500

Trim Levels of the RAM 1500

By Newark Chrysler Jeep Dodge

RAM completely redesigned its signature 1500 last year, and in 2020 it continues to be the most dominating pickup on the planet.  RAM dominates the competition thanks to its fantastic mix of engines, gorgeous interiors, and technologically advanced features. The excellent engine lineup includes the 3.6-liter V6 and 5.7-liter V8, but this year brings a new diesel engine. The diesel is a turbocharged 3.0-liter V6, which is known as the EcoDiesel. This impeccable engine gives the RAM and edge when it comes to towing numbers. Inside the cabin is another clear victory for RAM as the seats are comfortable, and the touchscreen is easy to use while adding all the latest applications. Seven trim levels are available for the RAM 1500, and each comes with an array of impressive features. Continue reading as we go over all of them.


Kicking things off is the base Tradesman, which comes standard with a 3.6-liter V6 engine that makes 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque. The Tradesman gives you the option of either a 5.7-liter V8 with 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque or the all-new diesel engine, which is a 3.0-liter V6 that comes with 260 horsepower and an astounding 480 lb-ft of torque. The V6 comes standard with an eTorque system that improves fuel economy, which is optional on the V8. All engines pair with an eight-speed automatic transmission, which provides a smooth ride. In terms of features, the Tradesman comes with 18-inch steel wheels, a 5-inch touchscreen, a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, and a push-button start. You also get trailer sway damping and a six-speaker stereo.
