2020 Ram 2500 Regular-Cab Work Truck: Spied

2020 Ram 2500_4

Testing for the next generation of the Ram 2500 and 3500 heavy-duty pickup trucks continues at a blistering pace. Our spy photographers are beginning to see more and different variations of the new HDs running around Michigan. No doubt Ram will be improving the new 2020 HD with many of the technologies and design strategies found on the redesigned 2019 Ram 1500, but there also will be some significant differences, especially in how the new platforms are rolled out to the public. More on that later. Here's what our shooters have just sent us:

"We got our first look at the work-focused, regular-cab variant for the next-generation Ram 2500 pickup as it took a lunchbreak at a Culver's.

"As our earlier shots revealed, the 2020 Ram HD pickups will share quite a bit with the all-new 2019 Ram 1500 trucks, going in a modernized route for the new trucks' styling. The Ram 1500 has not been seen in a regular-cab configuration because the truckmaker isn't building those yet, so the appearance of an HD prototype in its updated small-cab design is interesting. The 2500 prototype gets auxiliary lights on the roof and a more rugged stance than the light-duty truck. The eight-lug wheels get the new Ram's head logo on the center caps and new, wider mirrors.

"As we saw on earlier Ram HD prototypes, it appears that this work-spec 2500 prototype will use the same grille inserts we've seen on the 2019 Ram 1500, increasing the likelihood that the crosshair grille is on the way out. The headlights on this truck appear to be simpler than the LED headlights we saw on the previous HD prototypes, suggesting that the 2020s will adopt something close to the lighting on the Ram 1500 Tradesman trim level -- although there appears to be an additional light strip beneath the main headlight cluster. This may point to a partially revised front-end design on the 2020 Ram HDs to separate them visually from the light-duty models."

You first 4 commenters are really good at yanking on each other.....

I mean, heck Ford slipping and still spanking GM.

Correct papjim, once our GMs catch up to Ford, we should be good to go.

Gm will never catch Ford!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Look at the pace car wreck from this weekend, GM execs do not even know how to drive a sports car, and they are the ones giving us this trash?

The big news is that the Cummins 6,7 litre mill is upgraded and will be the marketleader with "the strongest diesel in the marketplace" With new block in CGI.

Post proof. Heck you all know I’m not a Ford fan.

But looking at the numbers

F Series is up over 11% for May 2018 and 6% for the year.

That must mean F150, F350, F350 are making huge gains.

hello

Bull crap Ford is doing great better tha GARBAGE MOTORS AND FIAT TRUCKS.

Oops. I meant “ That must mean F150, F350, ‘F450’ are making huge gains “

FYI Ram is down almost 10% YTD

I seriously think we can rule out a fiat JTD diesel.

TNT brought up a good point, when will PUTC post the numbers? I know papa is way off with his claims for sure (no surprise here), and I looked it up and agree with TNT's assessment. Ford sales are up for sure for May.

all you need to know is watch this "Frame-Flex Video"

many idiotic (fake) papajim comments today. A shame.

It probably means their mother had some dietary problem when they were in the womb.

you should know mamajim

They would put the 8 speed in them if they want to sell more

I have a friend that has a 2016 crew 4x4 6.4 2500. It has been good.
An 8 speed would make it better, and that darn tow haul dropping a gear when we didn't want it.

That is almost half of all TFL talks about, gradeshift....

Like hey, the truck doesn't know what the driver is doing. We can still hit that button to downshift when we want.

I believe Ford uses a CGI block for the PowerStroke and 2.7 EB.

Yea I found that really annoying too. The Ram 2500 and Chevy 2500 gassers both had transmissions with selectshift, so they could have easily locked out a gear they if they didn't want it to upshift. So where anybody that would own one of these trucks would just lock out 6th or 5th gear, TFL docked the trucks points and slowed down their runs because they took a hands off approach that isn't really real world.

many moronic comments by the FAKE TNTGMC....seriously get a life u clown


BTW....I thought CT was supposed to have picked up his truck last month???/ something is fishy here.

I LOVE ME SOME CAMO CLADDING SPY SHOTS

Notice that most if not all the fake comments are aimed at the GM guys, and there's one Ford girl that hasn't been posting...heck, I wonder who it could be??

Actually papajim started it.

The Ram Heavy Duty is the favorite truck for the oil fields here in Pennsylvania.

GMC is never the favorite truck for the oil fields. That much I can tell you.

Preach it papa. Furd fans can't handle your truth. Hahaha.

TNTGMC- if you must know all the details, I was originally going to get a truck I wanted through the dealer network-meaning-they did not have one on their lot, but had one miles away. That fell through, and I am now ordering. Geez dude, relax.

wrong.

The REAL papajim never posts under anyone else's ID. Never.

Relax??

@ CT

Im perfectly fine and wad asking a legitmate question. U had stated picking truck up and then u change your story that nownu dont have one? Its weird u have a truck then u don't??

Talk about other people telling lies or changing their stories.....u fit the bill perfectly

@ papajim

GM guys don't post under others user names. We have note class than that!! Its rather cowardly if u ask me!!

@ CT

BTW... You told GMSRGREAT that your Dodge was getting a certain gas mileage a few posts back, if I remember correctly? What's up with that?? So u were lying about that?

TNT-if its actually you. What are you talking about? That may have been one of you guys using my name again. Sheesh, no wonder I do not come on here much. So many forums are great for discussion, this one is terrible. The only thing PUTC has going is the articles.

-CT

@CT yes, tnt/gms/poopa all use different names and try to mess this place up, tnt was probly the one that used your name.....

Haha! Crutchtime and Nitro is clearly the same person. I suspected this for some time. I remember pressing crutchtime awhile back and then suddenly crutchtime is gone and Harvey shows up. HAHA!

@GMSRBAD you have clearly shown your multiple names on here for quite some time. You,papa,and tntgmc,sierra ruin the forums, whcih is why PUTC never took off like the others, so sad.....

.....Sadly, I have seen some good conversations come from you, but once the real TNT shows up it becomes apparent that logic and reasoning goes out the window.

Nitro-uh-er-um, would you please stop posting in my name? I will pull a TNT and call you an idiot.

Who can forget this epic failure by crutchtime and Nitro on the " Silverado 1500 delivers plenty of powertrains " . Hilarious!

Here are the May 2018 Pickup Sales Numbers

@ ecoboost

Why does that matter? Oh ya your a Ford guy..

@ CT and Nitro

Us GM guys don't use others user names. Get your stories straight!!

If someone posted under your name... Maybe u should call them out so we don't suspect its you!! Bc they had a convo going about how "your" Hemi gets over 20 mpgs? So it just made me ask question if u had your truck or not? I think u need to chill, deep breathes, and if u still have your reliable Chevy! Take it for a late afternoon road trip. Be good stress reliever for you, I'm guessing...

BTW.....I have and will never stoop that low and use someone else's user name....its childish!

you may not use other names but you sure are good at calling others names, you even went so far to call your in-laws stupid for driving Fords, as soon as someone calls you out on something you don't agree with you start freakin out and saying guys can't comprehend what you're trying to say when the only one having comprehension problems is you, you fan boys are all the same on this site not one of you can hold a decent conversation with insulting each other, I have been coming to this site for close to 12 years and is one of the better ones for news but you fan boys sure do ruin it, why do all of yall need others approval for the truck you drive

@ Try

Comprehend? I don't struggle with that. U obviously don't read my posts. Its the Fords guys who don't comprehend. And yes I have called out my in laws bc they are the biggest fanboys of all. If u would "comprehend" what I have posted...they have stated they would rather walk home than drive anything else. And trust me they have walked home.
As for freaking out??? Lol...OK, since u can't see my face how do u know I'm freaking out? When someone has to repeat themselves over time and time again its "frustrating" not freaking out! Big difference.
BTW...do u not see what your brother Frank posts? Hmmm...probably not since your a casual observer! Good day to u!!

@ Try

Comprehend? I don't struggle with that. U obviously don't read my posts. Its the Fords guys who don't comprehend.Right away you have to be biased a Ford guy can say the same thing about a GM or a Ram guy, your comment holds no water

And yes I have called out my in laws bc they are the biggest fanboys of all. If u would "comprehend" what I have posted...they have stated they would rather walk home than drive anything else. And trust me they have walked home. so, that's freedom of choice, you're not a liberal you can comprehend how Freedom of choice works right? i have heard that same comment over and over again from all fanboys and all have walked one time or another,

As for freaking out??? Lol...OK, since u can't see my face how do u know I'm freaking out? When someone has to repeat themselves over time and time again its "frustrating" not freaking out! Big difference.
BTW...do u not see what your brother Frank posts? you guys sure do feed off of each other

Hmmm...probably not since your a casual observer! Good day to u!!

reread my post i called out all fanboys, you can comprehend that correct?

@Try to be civil to your fellow blog readers

Instead of lecturing the rest of us, how about just sharing your reaction to the Ram 2500 Regular Cab

Hint: it's the subject of the article

With Fiat's 1500 front end styling undeniably a hit with most the same cosmetic treatment to the 25 and 3500 would be an easy and wise move.

It will surely heat up the contest for 2nd place between Fiat and Chevy.

CGiron

Ford has had CGI ever since building the new 6.7 powerstroke
DODGE late to the game as always
