This is a sponsored post partnered with Barkau Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram of Freeport. All opinions are honest and are my own.
In the last of my vehicle feature series, I’m focusing on the 2020 Dodge Ram 1500. I was never much of a truck person until my husband and I started doing more and more woodworking projects. The appeal of being able to haul large loads became apparent to me, and now that my husband has a small truck I have gained an appreciation for trucks even more.
The 2020 Ram 1500 Crew Cab model with optional front crash prevention and available Adaptive LED headlights built after May 2019 has been named a 2019 Top Safety Pick, and focuses on providing a smarter way to tow. All 2020 Ram 1500 models now have the following features available: Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Path and Trailer Detection, which scans the blind spot zones beside and behind the vehicle to help ensure trailer safety; amazingly enough this detection system automatically senses and accounts for the length of the trailer.
One concern many people might have when it comes to trucks is worrying about having comfort, and having enough space to fit passengers. The Ram 1500 has rear legroom of 45.1 inches, available reclining rear seat, available rear seat fold-down center console, and available under-seat storage. You can seat 5 people comfortably and still have room for gear that those people might bring with them. Getting in and out of the truck is easy, too, with power side running boards.
The tailgate on the Ram 1500 has a 60/40 split, and offers more ways to access the bed while still being able to handle demanding loads. The split, swing-away doors accommodate easy loading, making it easier to step up, load bulky items, unload and wash out the bed. There’s great storage on the exterior, too, with the RamBox Cargo Management System.
