In this review, Avtomancar.com will tell you about the new full-size Pickup Dodge Ram 1500 2020 and its modifications.
The exterior of the car successfully passed the tests in the aerodynamic tube. Innoving appeared in it: an updated radiator grille, an inch above the previous one, but with the same width. This corresponds to the improved type of front bumper. It appeared stronger fog lights oriented vertically, and the presence of larger holes near the hooks for towing simplified access to them.

Pedals have adjustable settings.
The new Pickup RAM 1500 has a passive key system - Keyless Enter'n Go System. It also acts as a key chain, but eliminates the need to press buttons. Through the use of a radio signal of the ECU, the driver "sees" the driver is already 100 meters, opens the door when it approximation, as soon as he touches the handle. The system also allows you to automatically turn on the ignition, but only if the keychain is already in the car. The central lock with remote control will help quickly block the doors by pressing one button.
Thanks to the technology of remote engine power, it can be remotely remotely from a distance of 91.44 m (300 feet). Remote control of doors, engine and light is standard in the list of Dodge functions of 1500 2020.
This list is complemented by glass wipers equipped with rain sensors, headlights with smart beam technology and Rambox triggers in the rear wings of auto, folding mirrors, sliding rear glass with a defrost. Optional access is a sleeping bag, the length of which is 1.93 meters.
The use of new developments and functions made it possible to use new materials in the interior design of the Dodge RAM 2020, as well as more carefully customized elements and achieve their more advanced finish. In addition, a new multimedia system and a new handle for switching gear was introduced.
Exclusively for the new car Dodge Rama 1500 designers applied special, unique color shades, resembling the grains of walnut and wood, which farmers usually use for fences. On such wood, a special vortex pattern is obtained that does not occur anywhere else. Door panels also found new shades and new finishes.
The central console was updated: now it has become more space, where the UConnect system screen with a diagonal of 8.4 inches is located. Also in her decoration there were new materials that fit into the overall interior.

Characteristics and equipment
The technical characteristics of the DODGE RAM 1500 2020 imply a new modification of the frame and the improved characteristics of rigidity torsion, has a higher stability and at the same time produces less noise and vibration (reducing the level up to 30%, which depends on the speed and motion features).
Most frame elements are manufactured using hydroforming technology, which makes it possible to achieve greater dimensions and reduce the presence of welds, which reduces the internal voltage. The material from which the frame is made is high strength steel, which ensures durability and rigidity.
The strength of the updated frame increases by 30%, thanks to the use of the best alloys. It also made it possible to reduce its weight by 15 kg.
Engine Pentastar V6.
The list of power plants for the new Dodge Ram 2020, includes the Pentastar V6 motor of 3.6 liters, which two years in a row enters the top 10 of the best engines.
