Also, according to the latest report, the interior of the new model will be also improved and the list of the standard equipment will be longer than before.
2020 Ram 4500 Is Based on the Light-Duty Ram 1500
As we already wrote, the 2020 Ram 4500 has been caught testing on the public roads and its body is heavy camouflage. Furthermore, the spy photos that we got showed us plenty of exterior updates and changes.
This truck is based on the light-duty Ram 1500 model, and it also uses some cues from it. The new heavy-duty pickup truck comes with a unique design and a strong body. Also, its chassis is improved if we compare it with the predecessors. However, some of the parts will remain the same as the crosshair grille and sidelines. The rear end of the new truck will get some changes, and we can expect more tough bumper and a new taillight system.
The all-new 2020 Ram 4500 is the truck that delivers a very comfortable cabin and it comes with the great technical department. This year, the manufacturer adds some upgrades that include many new features. One of the toughest truck on the market will compete against premium models from Ford and Chevrolet.
The new Interior will introduce more quality materials and more modern features that will be part of the standard equipment. Also, more soft-touch surfaces are present this time. The standard features list is huge. The new model includes an attractive 8.4-inch touchscreen with the latest UConnect system available. Also, the more driver-assistance systems and a more luxurious cabin will be part of the updates.
