2020 Ram HD In Dixon IL

U.S. News & World Report recently launched a list of “Future Trucks 2020: The Best New Pickup Trucks Arriving Next Year.” The redesigned 2020 Ram HD made the publication’s list of heavy-duty pickup trucks for drivers to check out if they’re looking for something cutting-edge. The Ram HD has always been known for its incredible towing and hauling capabilities and Ram’s team of engineers and designers took its power to the next level with this new redesign.

The 2020 Ram HD’s available 6.7-liter inline-six with an automatic transmission cranks out 400 HP and a whopping best-in-class torque of up to 1,000 lb-ft. Other engine options include a turbo-diesel option as well as a Hemi® V8. The V8, matched to an eight-speed automatic, is the Ram HD’s standard engine.

Standard safety features also made the cut, including automatic emergency braking and selectable tire pressures. A standard 360-degree camera system surpasses competitors, who typically only offer rear backup cameras standard but provide comparable systems as additional options.

U.S. News also cited the 2020 Ram HD’s high-strength steel frame in an age where competitors experiment with other, lighter materials gives it an extra layer of reliability and durability. The redesigned 2020 Ram HD has already entered production and is slated to go on sale soon.

2020 Jeep® Gladiator Is the Jeep® Pickup We Always Wanted

2020 Jeep® Gladiator | Dixon IL

In decades past, the Jeep® brand has offered a variety of pickup models including the most recent Comanche and the Scrambler from the 1980s. Now, however, we are getting an all-new Jeep® pickup in the form of the 2020 Jeep® Gladiator. It is available now at Ken Nelson Chrysler Dodge Jeep® Ram.

Styling

The Gladiator has almost identical styling to the Wrangler. It just has a truck bed added to the back. However, it has a longer wheelbase to compensate for the added length of the bed. Just like the Wrangler, you can take off the doors and roof for an open-air driving experience.

Powertrain

All Gladiator models are powered by a 3.6-liter V6 engine rated at 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. This engine gives the Gladiator plenty of power. When properly equipped, the Gladiator can tow up to a class-leading 7,650 pounds.

Off-Road Capabilities

Just because the Gladiator has a truck bed, that will not slow it down when it comes to tackling tough terrain. In fact, it is the first-ever Trail Rated® pickup truck on the market. Every Gladiator comes standard with a variety of off-road equipment including heavy-duty Dana® 44 front and rear solid axles and front and rear tow hooks.

Test-drive the 2020 Jeep Gladiator for yourself when you stop by Ken Nelson Chrysler Dodge Jeep® Ram.
