2020 RAM 3500 Changes Exterior & Interior
We will see 2020 RAM 3500 redesign for both the exterior and interior. Let’s start with the outer part first. What kind of redesign will it get? Well, to start, the front grille is redesigned. It will have nostril-like openings. These openings are complemented with RAM lettering in its center. The upcoming RAM is going to get a new, slotted front bumper as well. The powertrain now is better protected, thanks to new skidplates.
Moreover, new HD cameras will be installed. Another camera is installed on its tailgate handle, with a second Center High Mounted Stop Lamp camera designed to give the driver the view of the bed. The Tungsten Edition will be offered, which features unique wheels, running boards with body-color additional chrome details as well as RAM logo on its tailgate.
Now, let’s talk about the interior. As we see from the 2020 RAM 3500 concept, the interior is going to look a bit outdated. Don’t be discouraged yet, though. While it does look a bit outdated, the RAM 3500 will come with lots of very competitive tech features in its class. The base model will get a small driver infotainment display, AM/FM radio, vinyl flooring and other standard features. The upholstery and luxury will depend on the trim level. The higher the trim level is, the better the upholstery and luxury.
