Ram 1500 Named 2020 Edmunds Top Rated Truck

At Tom Kelley CDJR, we already know the Ram 1500 is a great truck, but it’s nice to get outside recognition. The Ram 1500 was recently named the 2020 Edmunds Top Rated Truck in the Edmunds Top Rated awards, which recognize the best vehicles in the market today across seven automotive categories.

“The Ram 1500 just keeps getting better and is once again our Top Rated Truck for 2020,” said Edmunds editor-in-chief Alistair Weaver. “We still love its technology, interior build quality, ride comfort and capability, but the new EcoDiesel variant introduced this year delivers even stronger fuel economy, more torque and improved towing capability.”

For 2020, the Ram 1500 is offered with an all-new 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 that produces 480 lb-ft of torque and boasts a towing capability of 12,560 pounds. That’s 14 percent more torque than the previous-generation EcoDiesel V6, and more torque and towing capacity than any other truck in the half-ton pickup segment. And thanks to the EcoDiesel’s efficiency, the truck can go more than 1,000 miles before needing a pit stop (when paired with the available 33-gallon fuel tank).

There’s no doubt the 2020 Ram 1500 is the pickup truck to have for anyone seeking the best performance available today. Explore all of its features and learn more about the amazing EcoDiesel V6 engine at Tom Kelley CDJR.

Ram Could Make a SRT-10 Successor

Pickup trucks are on the rise, and Ram is one of the brands experiencing the most growth. With so many competitors in the industry releasing different models, packages, and trims, it would seem there’s a pickup truck for everything. There is a hole in the market, however. In a place where luxury trucks and off-road trims are commonplace, track-ready performance has been overlooked. Ram might be hoping to fill that void with a Ram SRT-10 successor.

While other brands invest time and money in the off-road pickup truck segment, enthusiasts clamor for the days when more sporty, performance-oriented trucks were around for those who prefer to stay on the pavement. The Ram SRT-10 offered the same V10 engine found in the Dodge Viper and a 0-60 time of only 4.9 seconds. What better way to combine track-ready performance with pickup truck capability than to build its successor?

Right now, Ram is hard at work on the Rebel TRX, a powerful, full-size off-roader, to compete with others on the market. A closer look at the Rebel TRX could give us insight to what a Ram SRT-10 successor could be. The new truck even packs a supercharged Hellcat V8 engine under the hood. Could a street-performance pickup be getting a Hellcat engine, too? While Ram representatives won’t confirm that a new SRT-10 is coming, they won’t deny it either.
