Ram Dealership – Ennis, TX
When shopping for a truck, you don’t want just any manufacturer. You want a vehicle that’s built to serve. You want a vehicle that’s as hard-working as you and can handle whatever you throw at it. Not all brands out there can do that. From work pickups to transit vans, Ram is the hardest working lineup of heavy-duty vehicles on the planet. There is a reason why Ram is Built to Serve. Here at Frank Kent CDJR, we specialize in Ram because, much like the automotive company, we’re built to serve you. So whatever your needs are, if you’re looking for a dependable, long-lasting vehicle for yourself or your place of business, there’s no better combination than a Ram dealership and our team at Frank Kent CDJR.
The Ram Brand
The Ram brand is truly built to serve. Every vehicle in its lineup is rugged and constructed to handle all of your business and consumer needs. From the Ram 1500 classic to the heavy-duty Ram 2500 and 3500, there is a truck that will help you get the job done.
But maybe you’re not looking for a truck. While the Ram brand is best known for its world-class lineup of pickups, the company also specializes in vans. This includes the Promaster and Promaster City. These vans are built using many of the same design elements as the Ram 1500, including the use of powerful engines and towing capacity. These vans are perfect for when you need a vehicle, and you can customize for your unique needs. If you’re delivering goods in Dallas and you need a van with large interior space, or you’re looking to outfit a sleeper van for your travel needs, there’s nothing else like a Ram brand van.
The Ram Promise of Power and Performance
Kicking things off with the 2020 Ram 1500, there are several powertrains to choose from. First is the standard 3.6L V6 coupled with an 8-speed automatic transmission. This powertrain generates up to 305 hp and can tow up to 7,730 pounds. If you’re thinking that the gas mileage must be atrocious, think again. This powertrain gets an estimated 23 MPG combined (20 city/26 highway).
If you need something that’s twice as powerful, you can opt for the 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 motor. Pushing out 260 hp, it has a towing capacity of 12,560 pounds. For folks who want nothing but a V8, the beastly 5.7L HEMI V8 engine will be more than satisfactory. This engine produces up to 395 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque, and it can be paired with an eTorque mild hybrid system for optimized performance. Essentially, the eTorque system replaces the traditional alternator with a belt-driven generator that uses a 48-volt battery as a power source.
The 2020 Ram Classic is available with the same V6 and V8 engine options. But it does not yet come with a diesel engine. All of the stats for the engines on this model are the same as with the Ram 1500. The V8 is also still able to be fitted with the eTorque mild hybrid system for better performance.
As for the massive Ram 2500, this beast has two engine options. First is a standard 6.4L Hemi V8 that generates 410 hp and 429 lb-ft of torque. This powertrain is mated with an 8-speed automatic transmission, and it can tow up to 17,540 pounds without breaking a sweat. The next option is a turbocharged diesel 6.7L V6 paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission. This monster has a maximum towing capacity set at 19,680 pounds.
Trim Levels and Highlights
If we go too in-depth on the details of each and every trim, we would be writing a book; there is just so much that these trucks offer. So, let’s look at each model’s trim selections and the main highlights on each.
The 2020 Ram 1500 Trims
The 2020 Ram 1500 is available in six trim levels starting with the Tradesman. The base model starts at $32,145 and includes keyless entry, vinyl upholstery, a 6-speaker stereo, and three 12-volt power outlets. The infotainment interface is displayed on a 5-inch touchscreen and operates with Bluetooth and a 4G LTE Wifi hotspot.
Next, the Bighorn trim gives you the option of an 8.5-inch or 12-inch touchscreen for the infotainment system. It also comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. When it comes to the Ram 1500, the most popular model is the Laramie, and for a good reason. The Laramie comes with heated leather seats and a 9-speaker stereo system. If you are looking for even more features, stepping up to the Rebel trim will add rear parking sensors for added safety.
If you want something more luxurious, the Longhorn is a great choice. This model comes with heated/ventilated leather seats for comfort all year long. Finally, the top-tier Limited adds voice-activated navigation, a 19-speaker Harman Kardon stereo system, blind spot monitoring, and front/back parking sensors.
2020 Ram 1500 Special Editions
Out of the three trucks, the 2020 Ram 1500 is the only model that is available in special editions. Many of these special edition versions build off of specific trims.
First, we have the 2020 Ram 1500 Bighorn Built to Serve Edition. This model was inspired by the American Armed Forces and comes in Gator Green or Black Diamond. Next is the Laramie Southwest Edition that features chrome accents and a dual-panel sunroof. Please note that this special edition model is only available in Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma, and Texas. Then, there is the Night Edition, which is built on either the Longhorn or the Laramie. It adds all-black exterior accents with your choice of body color.
Available on the Rebel and Limited version is the Black Appearance Package. If you want a completely blacked-out truck, this is the one for you. It covers the truck from head to toe with Diamond Black Crystal Pearl paint. Finally, the Ram 1500 Rebel gets its own unique spin with Rebel graphics located on the hood and sides of the vehicle.
The 2020 Ram 1500 Classic Trims
As for the 2020 Ram Classic, it is only available in three trims. The first is known as the Tradesman, and it starts at $28,200. It comes with easy-to-clean vinyl seating and the handy Rambox cargo management system. Next is the mid-level Express. Featuring a monochromatic look and 20-inch black-painted aluminum wheels, this model is perfect for people who love a darkened aesthetic.
Last but not least, the Warlock is the top-of-the-line trim for the Ram 1500 Classic. It includes black tow hooks, powder black bumpers, and a 1-inch suspension lift on 4×4 models. Displayed on an 8.4-inch touchscreen is the Uconnect 4C NAV infotainment interface. It works with HD radio, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth, and a 4G LTE Wifi hotspot.
The 2020 Ram 2500 Trims
Meanwhile, the Ram 2500 is offered in 6 unique trim levels. Starting at $33,745 is the Tradesman. This model includes work-grade vinyl seats, keyless entry, power locks/windows, and a 5-inch touchscreen for the infotainment interface. Bluetooth connectivity and a USB port are also included.
Moving up to the Bighorn trim will get you a choice of four interior color combos. It also comes with an upgraded 12-inch UConnect touchscreen interface, a 9-speaker Alpine stereo system, lane-departure warning, lane-keeping assist, and a rearview camera for assistance with hooking up a trailer.
Next up is the Laramie trim. With its distinctive chrome grille, LED lights, and 18-inch aluminum wheels, this beast is quite impressive. The cabin features leather-trimmed seats with suede insert, ambient lighting to set the mood, and soft-touch surfaces. Jumping up to the Power Wagon changes the game quite a bit. The cabin is done in black and liquid graphite for a rugged appearance. Bilstein gas-charged monotube shocks make for a smoother ride, and the WARN ZEON-12 Winch makes towing much easier.
For the cowboy or cowgirl at heart, the Laramie Longhorn is a solid pick. Styled with southwestern charm, you get a billet chrome grille, two-tone paint colors, polished wheels with accent pockets, and a wheel-to-wheel sidestep. The cabin boasts leather seating with alligator embossed accents and real wood on the dashboard. This model is quite a looker!
Finally, the Limited trim is the embodiment of luxury. It features an exclusive design on the grille, a power side step, LED exterior lighting, and 20-inch aluminum wheels. Inside is full leather seating, wood/aluminum accents, and it has a 17-speaker premium Harman Kardon stereo system. It also comes with the best infotainment interface in the fleet, which is the Uconnect 4C NAV system. Displayed on an 8.4-inch touchscreen, it operates with HD radio, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth, and a 4G LTE Wifi hotspot.
