The 2020 RAM 2500 – Engines & Towing Capacity

For businesses and individuals shopping for a heavy duty truck, power and capability are of utmost importance. The 2020 RAM 2500 embodies the top characteristics that Ames business owners want from their pickup truck.

RAM has equipped its flagship heavy duty truck with powerful engine options, as well as a rigid construction, to maximize its utility to Ankeny owners. Whether you prefer the class-leading HEMI V8, or the incomparable turbodiesel, your 2020 RAM 2500 will outperform the competition when it matters most.

The 2020 RAM 2500 comes standard with a 6.4l HEMI V8  that produces 410 horsepower and 429 lb-ft of torque. And for Ankeny buyers who want maximum torque, there is a 6.7l turbodiesel rated at 370 horsepower and 850 lb-ft of torque. With a max towing capacity of 19,780 lbs, a diesel-equipped RAM 2500 is a true monster for both work and play. RAM has also incorporated advanced towing and safety technologies to keep drivers safe on the road. From trailer camera hookups, to lane keeping assist and blind spot monitoring, you and your workforce will be in control at all times in the 2020 RAM 2500.

Another big factor that Des Moines buyers will appreciate is the RAM 2500’s comfort. RAM has long been known for offering the most comfortable pickup trucks out there, and the 2020 RAM 2500 takes it a step further. The load-leveling air suspension optimizes your driving experience, whether cruising with an empty bed or loaded up with material. It also has the ability to “kneel”, allowing for easier loading and unloading. The extending step will also help Iowa owners get into the bed, and is a welcome addition to the 2020 RAM 2500.

Other safety technologies on the 2020 RAM 2500 include forward collision warning, 360-degree surround-view parking camera, and fifth-wheel trailer preparation. While the RAM 2500’s towing capacity and power have made big news, its comfort and ease of driving make it all the more attractive to Iowa drivers and businesses.

Interior Features & Best Heavy Duty Warranty

While there’s no doubt the RAM 2500 can handle the toughest jobs, that doesn’t mean it needs to be a barebones machine. Des Moines buyers will be able to choose a wide range of trim levels and options to price the 2020 RAM 2500 that’s just right for them. You can option a base Tradesman for your fleet and work on the jobsite, or a luxury powerhouse with 12-inch touchscreen, full leather interior, and more. Both the HEMI V8 and the Cummins diesel are available on all trim levels, giving Deery of Ames Commercial customers the flexibility to buy the exact heavy duty pickup they want.

A popular option for a personal vehicle is the mid-level Laramie, which has an extensive feature list. Some highlights include LED headlights & taillights, foglights, remote ignition, front & rear parking sensors, dual-zone automatic climate control, power driver’s seat with memory, heated leather seats & steering wheel, 10-speaker surround-sound system, and 8.4-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Combined with its impressive towing and hauling capability, these features make the 2020 RAM 2500 truly one of a kind.

While it’s doubtful a RAM 2500 Laramie will be used as a standard work vehicle, it’s a great option for business owners who want a personal vehicle that can still tow nearly 20,000 lbs. And flexibility in powertrain and other options will help Ankeny buyers dial in their perfect heavy duty vehicle.

Another unique option for Des Moines buyers who want a heavy duty truck for both work and play is the Power Wagon. This is the 2020 RAM 2500’s off-road trim, and comes with all-terrain tires, off-road shock absorbers, tow hooks, skid plates, manual transfer case, electronically locking front & rear differentials with a 4.10 axle ratio, hill descent control, integrated front winch, and an electronic front stabilizer bar.

When it comes to buying a heavy duty truck for Commercial use, power and towing are often front and center. But Iowa shoppers also need reliability and peace of mind from their investment. Not only is the 2020 RAM 2500 a king on the jobsite, it also comes with impressive warranty coverage. All 2020 RAM 2500 models come standard with a 3-year/36,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty, and one of two powertrain warranties. The RAM 2500 with the HEMI V8 comes with a 5-year/60,000-mile warranty, while Cummins turbodiesel models get a 5-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty.

Combined with the dedicated customer service from Deery of Ames Commercial, it’s hard to beat the peace of mind offered by the 2020 RAM 2500.
