2020 RAM 1500 Towing Capacity & New Diesel Engine


Our Dayton customers have been asking us about the 2020 RAM 1500's increased towing capacity, as well as its all-new diesel engine. This is the first diesel RAM 1500 in a couple years, and it is exciting to see RAM's EcoDiesel back in the lineup. We will look at how it performs, both in towing and fuel economy.

The RAM 1500 was completely redesigned in 2019, offering revised engines, interior, styling, and construction. The result was Motor Trend's Truck of the Year. For 2020, the RAM 1500 returns with its all-new engine and other tweaks, making the best pickup truck in Beavercreek even better.

At Evans Arena, we're happy to have the 2020 RAM 1500 in stock, and to continue offering our Dayton, OH customers the lowest prices in town. You can view our inventory of RAM trucks below, as well as apply for easy financing, no matter your credit score. When it comes to the prices on our vehicles, nobody beats Evans Arena. Nobody.

2020 RAM 1500 - EcoDiesel & Max Towing

The 2020 RAM 1500 brings along its advanced eTorque engines from last year, and also adds its 3.0l turbodiesel to the lineup. This engine not only results in increased fuel efficiency, its boost in torque also makes for a very high towing capacity. We're going to look at which engine provides the highest towing capacity, as well as efficiency.

We'll start off by looking at the all-new 3.0l EcoDiesel. When it was first redesigned, the RAM 1500 did not have a diesel option. But with the 2020 RAM 1500, there is a new turbodiesel engine available, which promises great towing combined with impressive fuel efficiency.


With its towing capacity of 12,560 lbs, the RAM 1500's EcoDiesel engine should be able to handle even the toughest towing assignments. But perhaps even more impressive, is that it does so very efficiently. A 2020 RAM 1500 with the diesel engine and RWD is rated at 26 mpg combined and 32 highway. Choosing 4WD results in 24 combined and 29 highway, which are better numbers than many small SUVs can manage. If you'll be driving long distances in Ohio, or even out of state, the EcoDiesel is the perfect engine for your RAM 1500. Many contractors and small business owners also benefit from the savings on fuel as their work takes them all over Dayton.

The other popular engine for towing on the RAM 1500 is its 5.7l HEMI V8 with eTorque. RAM's advanced eTorque system is a mild hybrid that controls cylinder shutoff and can also add to the vehicle's initial torque, making this V8 more efficient than the previous generation's engine of the same size.

When it comes to towing capacity, the RAM 1500 with the V8 is still king in its class at 12,750 lbs. This just beats the EcoDiesel, and keeps RAM the V8 towing leader for its class. Fuel economy of the V8-equipped RAM 1500 with 4WD is 19 mpg combined, and 22 highway. Like the EcoDiesel, these numbers beat those of many smaller, less capable vehicles. Both the 3.0l turbodiesel and the 5.7l HEMI provide impressive power and efficiency, giving Dayton buyers their choice of high-performance engine based on their needs.
