The 2020 Ram 1500 Brings a Surprising Level of Luxury to St. Paul, Alberta
Trucks rarely earn praise for their high-end attributes. However, in 2020, Cars.com named the Ram 1500 â€œLuxury Car of the Year.â€ Though the respected publication mentioned the usual contenders, such as BMW, its highest honours went to the mid-size pickup because of its premium features – especially on the Laramie Longhorn and Limited trims.
A Closer Look at What Alberta Drivers Can Expect from the 2020 Ram 1500
St. Paul truck owners will get a seamless ride in the 1500, thanks to heavy-duty shocks and a smooth suspension. They may be more surprised by the premium seating features, high-end upholstery, state-of-the-art infotainment systems, and the virtually limitless customisation and organisation options.
Here are five reasons why the 2020 Ram 1500 deserves to be the Luxury Car of the Year.
Passenger comfort is one of the areas where the 2020 Ram 1500 separates itself from other mid-size pickups in St. Paul. Natura Plus leather covers the high-back bucket seats, and heated chairs are standard. Such characteristics are not unheard of for front passengers, but Laramie Longhorn and Limited models have a luxury-sedan-like trait: a warmed rear row. This is very rare in the truck market.
A Quiet and Smooth Ride
The 2020 Ram 1500 offers a quiet and smooth ride. An aerodynamic hood limits vibration, while a state-of-the-art acoustic windshield repels traffic sounds. The noise in a car at highway speeds is typically 70 dBa, but the sound tops out at only 56.7 dBa in the cabin. Meanwhile, heavy-duty shocks and coil-link suspension ensure a comfortable journey, even on rough surfaces.
The 2020 Ram 1500 also has practical traits. It is simple to declutter the cabin, regardless of what you use your truck for. In-floor and under-seat storage compartments make it possible to stow tools and luggage without taking space away from passengers. A dual glove box, door pockets, and an overhead console offer additional options for keeping smaller items close at hand.
The 2020 Ram 1500 offers 3,738 L of total interior volume, allowing passengers to enjoy class-leading headroom (up to 1039mm front/996mm rear) and legroom (up to 1039mm/904mm). That is enough space for a comfortable ride on even the longest journey, and it lets both rows experience reclining chairs. Such a feature is virtually unheard of for a pickup truck.
