2020 Ram 2500 Interior: Spied

I-Wbxj7Pk copy II

We can't say this is much of a surprise, but after seeing some of what our spy shooters have sent us, it looks like the all the best aspects of the 2019 Ram 1500 interior will be carrying over into the all-new Ram heavy-duty lineup we should be seeing at some point in the near future. Not only did our photographers find one well-dressed Laramie rolling down the road, but they were able to run up and get a few close-up shots of the dash and center console. Here's what they sent.

"Today we bring you a closer look at the "unofficial debut" of what we think is the 2020 Ram HD. Our latest shots reveal an undisguised Laramie interior.

"The current Ram HDs are getting long in the tooth, having been on sale since 2010 and only receiving a minor facelift in 2014 (lights, grille, updated interior). The new HD trucks fall in line with the recently debuted 2019 Ram 1500, and in the process, ditch the crosshair grille, a hallmark of the truck since the mid-1980s.

"Other exterior styling cues run in parallel to the half ton, but in a more muscular fashion. Inside, HDs will mimic the 1500 with thoughtful design and premium materials. Tech should come from the Uconnect 4 system, with or without navigation, with an 8.4-inch screen and the optional Uconnect 4C navigation and infotainment system with the massive 12-inch touchscreen center console display (not shown here, though we're predicting).

"Current power is derived from three engines: a 383-horsepower, 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 with a compressed natural gas option; a 410-hp, 6.4-liter Hemi V-8; and a 6.7-liter inline-six-cylinder turbo-diesel available in three power tunes: 350 hp with 660 pounds-feet of torque, 370 hp with 800 pounds-feet, and 385 hp with 930 pounds-feet. The 5.7-liter and 6.4-liter Hemis are paired to a six-speed automatic transmission, while the three versions of Cummins turbo-diesels can be paired to either a six-speed manual or an Allison six-speed automatic. We expect the diesel to get an additional power bump in hopes of upstaging the Ford F-350 and Chevrolet Silverado 3500, which currently feature more horsepower and similar torque numbers."

i love their interiors

Allison trans??

Would love to see the column shifter offered on the 1500 too.

I can't make my needs fit my wants, but this truck is almost enough to do just that.

Typo, Ram uses an Aisin 6 Speed Auto, not an Allison.

I just don't see what the fascination is with the interior. Guess I'm old school... Function over form.

Had to laugh at the guy who asked if it has an Allison trans He has learned to be wary of his GM products when it has a GM transmission. And rightfully so. He likely has learned the hard way, as did I. GM was smart to turn to other manufacturers to build the pieces they can't seem to build well themselves. Maybe they should look to Toyota to provide their trucks, but rebadge them, of course, as they have done with so many cars in the past.

@ uh huh

Im with you. Im alittle old school. I love GMs 18 interior and their new 19 interior bc its practical and simple. This HD interior looks like its incorporating that. It doesnt have the huge tablet screen that makes u navigate through to get to things. It takes eyes of road among other things.

I like functionality and actual knobs to turn. Easy to use. Plus, those big tablets will go out and I wouldnt want to replace them. Just wait it will be a nightmare

As for exterior it looks like Ram is keeping it conservative and making all their trucks look very similar.

Not sure why Ram is sticking with the old 4th gen Cab. Kind of weird the new interior will go right into the old cab. I'm guessing it was not a complete redesign. And then they have a new front clip and new tail lights. I guess this means the new tail lights might fit in the 4th gen 1/2 tons as well.

looks dinky compared to new HD Silverado,
just a 2019 with a new interior, and snout

Fiat has figured out full size truck interiors and grills. 2 things chevy hasn't.

Chevy dropping from 2nd to 3rd gets more and more likely.

Looks great! GM and Ram will have Ford and it's hard plastics in 3 place in no time!

@the fake TNTGMC

Ford execs are in the process of spending 11 billion dollars so they can "right-size" the company. Care to take a wild guess? I bet they're going to make the company smaller, not bigger.

Last time I checked 11 billion is still a lot of dough

At least the 11 billion Ford will spend is its own.

IS it just me or is that the exact same cab and box?

What an idiot.

The 11 billion is SHAREHOLDER money you bleeping moron. Nurse's pensions, teacher pensions, cop pensions makes up more than half of Ford's total equity. Fool!

Looks like a parts bin mutt. Old Cab, new lights, old bed, new interior.

Ram has some of the nicest interiors of any truck. I think they have a real winner. I can see Ram getting more sales from Ford and GM owners.

The overall styling is a carefully though out one and doesn't need to be Over-The -Top, some design cues between the cab and the bed look to be carried over from the Current Generation, overall it's going to be a winner in the market!!!

All but the front clip and interior is the same as previous model. Why did Ram go with the soft look on their HD trucks. GM HD trucks are now more burly looking than the Ram HD now. The new Ram HD looks more like the 1/2 ton did in 2018, I think they used the old 1/2 ton hood for sure. Anyway, interior is nice but with the troubles Ram is already having with the 2919 1/2 ton electronics, the niceness will wear off fast when stuff starts failing.

With Chevy likely making the same mistakes on the HD interior as they did on the 1500 and it being too late to change, Ram will definitely be the #2 truck brand by 2020. Possibly posing a real threat to the Ford brand after 41 or whatever years. I only post facts.

Us Chevy guys will always be able to say our 6.2 and Duramax are fast. Even if the rest of the truck looks like it was designed and engineered by Fisher Price.

GM finally got their interiors on par with Ford after 20 years of plastic mess. Now you want to say Ford is the most plastic. Go to bed son.

Did you wash your hands after you posted that? No, well at least use some hand sanitizer

The new Silverado and Sierra HDs might LOOK more burly, but they aren’t. They are the same, tired, rough riding, torsion bar IFS garbage, introduced in 88 and updated in 12. They lack serious suspension refinement and have in a great year 1/4 of the HD pickup market.
But they LOOK burly.
Same guys who had Choppers, then sand rails, and now tricked out RZRs to LOOK cool.

In the 70s and early 80s almost no one had a Dodge truck.
GM went ladyboy and Dodge went tough. Ford upped the game with the Super Duty and the rest is history. GM, with superior engines, transmissions, and overal design quality, is getting destroyed in the HD market. I mean, Ford captured 50% of the market with the Triton, the garbage V10, and 6.0/6.4 power jokes, and they STILL dominate. Dodge/Ram/whatever still doesn’t have great quality, but they outsell GM in HD pickups.

GM will never get back their past dominance with their disasterous paradigm.
Marketing sells products. Good products sell themselves. Great products have people ASKING to sell FOR them.

Lots of opinions about the interior but I think the BIG surprise will be under the hood with the all new Cummins I6 with some stunning power close to 1000 lb/ft och torque and 450 hp with a new block in CGI from Tupy Saltillo. In less than four weeks the truck will be in full production.

I'm more than a little disappointed in Fiat for keeping this truck on the old platform. Ram's new 1/2 ton cab is outstanding and should've been shared with the HDs.

FCA put their resources where they needed it most, building a new 1500 and a new Jeep pickup.

Talk to people who own/drive RAM heavy duty pickups and you're talking to satisfied customers. People LOVE their 2500s

I think RAM will make a huge bite in the HD market by keeping the old school cab in the HD's and upgrading the interior to match the 19' 1500 standards.

Meanwhile, Ford is very busy designing doghouses.

My nephew loves his Cummins 3500. It is the 2nd one he has owned.

Another useless papjim post. Did you think this was funny weirdo? Try putting down the Pabst Blue Ribbon and staying on topic.

That may or may not be true, but my original opinion still works for me.

It's still on the the 4th gen cab because they need to produce it in the same factory as the current HD while they refurbish Warren where the actual 5th gen HD will be produced. Right now Warren is outputting the 1500 "classic" model.

Love my ford but after 2010 had to go to ram just to get manual transmission

@Brandon

Manual shift? that would sure ice the beer for me as well! The first, (next?) of the big 3 automakers to deliver a half ton V8 pickup with a decent manual shift offering gets my enduring loyalty.

During the last 30 years I've had two Ford trucks with the stick shift; both of my Chevy's were autos, good trouble free autos, but there is no comparison for anyone who's ever become familiar with driving a manual.

I loved my 2013 Ram Longhorn and decided to purchase a 2018 Ford F-250 Limited. That was a mistake but not as much of a mistake as Chevy in the new 2019 Hd Silverado. That is ugly along with a cheap looking interior. I predict Ram will have the best interior in 2020 however, I wonder when Tesla or the electric manufacturers will produce an HD pickup? My wife’s Tesla is a game changer and can’t help to think all the posts going back and fourth between manufacturers will just be a waste of time. The more I read these the more I laugh.

Chevy and GM is in major trouble. Ford needs to get their quality together and Ram needs to figure out how to separate themselves from the Ford vs Chevy childish owner responses. I hope an electric HD truck comes along and wakes all the manufacturers up. Sorry, but just my 2 cents after readings these ridiculous responses between who’s the best LOL...

GUTS

GLORY

SMASHING FORD

DESTROYING GM

CLASS LEADING 2020 RAM HD

What everyone missed: The NEW 6.7l will have a CGI block.
It will use steel Mahler pistons instead of aluminum ones. HP
goes from 370 to 410 and torque from 800 to 930 for the 2500.
And the piece de resistance will be a all new 8 speed auto tranny
from ZF designed for the Ram. No more 68RFE-it can't handle
the big bump up in power. The 3500 6.7 will continue getting
the Aisin's. The hp/torque will inch closer to the magic
numbers of 500hp/1,000 lbs ft torque....that's insane power for
a factory pickup.
Say good night to GM and Ford.....
