As one of the best selling trim levels in the lineup, the 2020 Ram 1500 Limited package is the top-level model that has everything you need. This fully-loaded trim is brimming with great comfort, convenience, tech, and safety features. If you want to take one out for a spin, go to a Ram dealership near you for a test drive, and you’ll be ready to take this beast home as soon as you slip behind the wheel.
Power and Performance
Rumbling under the hood is a standard 3.6L V6 engine coupled with an 8-speed automatic transmission that produces 305 hp. Equipped with RWD, this powertrain can pull up to 6,730 pounds with an estimated fuel economy set at 22 mpg combined (20 city/25 highway).
At the Limited trim level, you have more powertrain options than with the base model. To get the best-in-class towing capacity of 12,560 pounds, you should opt for the 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 engine. This powertrain pushes out 260 hp. The third engine option is the popular 5.7L HEMI V8 engine that generates 395 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque. This popular HEMI motor can be paired with the innovative eTorque mild hybrid system that uses a 48-volt battery-powered generator to replace the traditional alternator. This system is meant to improve the powertrain’s overall fuel economy and performance.
Other performance features on the 2020 Ram 1500 Limited include an active air dam that extends down 2.5-inches when the vehicle reaches speeds over 30 mph. This helps to reduce drag and improve fuel efficiency. Also, aerodynamic features that will enhance the overall performance of this model include a sculpted roof, an elevated hood, and a rear spoiler.
Size, Space, and Functionality
The new 2020 Ram 1500 Limited is only available in the crew cab body style with the option to have the 5-foot-7-inch bed or the 6-foot-4-inch bed. The truck can manage a payload weighing between 1,212 and 2,302 pounds with no problem. This crew cab cabin style can seat five to six people comfortably, which is ideal for families. The cab style not only provides enough room for the people in your family, but there is plenty of space throughout the cab and the bed to travel with luggage, camping gear or anything that you and your family need to lug around with you.
Whether you opt for the short or long bed length, the box comes with the Multifunction Tailgate. This groundbreaking invention has redesigned the tailgate to open a multitude of ways. It features double swing-out doors that can open up to 88-degrees. This allows you to load heavy items into the back of the pickup with ease. It also helps when you’re loading extremely heavy cargo via a forklift. This tailgate can also open downwards like a traditional tailgate if you need it. It can withstand up to 2,000 pounds of pressure, which is much higher than other tailgates out there.
Taking the functionality of the bed to a new level, the class-exclusive Rambox cargo management system is also included with the Limited package. This adds drainable, lockable, weather-proof storage compartments along both sides of the bed. These compartments are lit so that you can see what you’re looking for at night.
Exterior Features and Paint Options
The Ram 1500 Limited is available in eight beautiful shades, including Diamond Black Crystal, Maximum Steel Metallic, Granite Crystal Metallic, Billet Silver Metallic, Bright White, Ivory White, Delmonico Red, and Patriot Blue. These monotone exterior paint colors come in either pearl- or clear-coat for maximum shine.
Other distinguishing exterior features include the corrugated mesh grille with the Ram logo and sleek chrome accents for that aggressive Ram style that everyone loves. Power-retractable running boards allow for easy entry and exit for kids and elderly passengers. These running boards deploy automatically when the truck is in park, stopped, or the doors are opened. Metal-inlaid Limited badging also decorates the sides, tailgate, and grille so that everyone knows this is a top-of-the-line model.
LED headlights provide enhanced visibility at night and during inclement weather. The Limited model also rides on 20-inch premium-painted partial-clad aluminum wheels. There aren’t any other wheel options for this top-tier model.
This particular trim level has numerous safety features, including blindspot monitoring, front/rear parking sensors, a rearview camera, traction control, and electronic stability control. The Ram 1500 Limited also provides 360 degree cameras to give drivers a complete view of their surroundings. These features all work in unison to help prevent accidents on the road and while navigating the treacherous parking lots. With all of these features, it is clear that your and your family’s safety is at the top of Ram’s mind.
Slipping behind the wheel is an experience all on its own. The 2020 Ram 1500 Limited includes a premium 19-speaker Harman Kardon stereo system that delivers high-quality sound. The information interface is displayed on an 8.4-inch touchscreen that operates with Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free calling and texting. This system is also compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for a seamless app and audio integration. Essentially, the system turns your vehicle’s infotainment interface into your smartphone. A voice-activated navigation system has also recently been added. You can pre-set your most frequented locations or say where you want to go. This system will give you the fastest route to your desired destination, so you won’t have to worry about getting lost or stuck in traffic again.
Premium leather upholstery covers the heated and ventilated seats. The issue many people have with leather seating is that it can be scalding in the summer and freezing in the winter. With the Limited, you don’t have to worry about that anymore. With remote start technology and driver memory settings, you can program the truck to warm up the seats during the winter or cool them off during the summer months. Unique Limited badging can also be seen on the leather seats.
Interior storage compartments include a lockable glovebox, spacious door bins, and a large overhead mini console. You can store important documents, maps, spare change, charging cables, mini flashlights, sunglasses, and anything else you want.
Optional features for the Limited trim include a larger 7-inch driver information display screen with dynamic 3D graphics. You can customize the way this monitor looks for your convenience. Four USB ports can be added for everyone to charge their mobile devices. A giant 10-square-foot panoramic dual-panel sunroof is an optional add-on as well. You can open this up during the spring, summer, or fall to enjoy a gentle breeze from the outside.
