  • 2020 Jeep® Gladiator wins the Mid-Size Pickup category in its debut year
  • Car and Driver evaluates each contender versus its peers using a 100-point scale, basing each score on intended purpose, value, and vehicle operation


November 21, 2019 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - Car and Driver has named the 2020 Jeep® Gladiator and the 2020 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel to its combined “10Best Cars and Trucks” list as the winners in the Mid-Size Pickup category and the Full-Size Pickup truck category, respectively.

Car and Driver evaluates each contender versus its peers using a 100-point scale, basing each score on how well it meets its intended purpose, how good a value it is and how compelling it is to operate.

This is the second year in a row Ram 1500 – the most awarded light-duty truck in America – has been named to Car and Driver’s 10Best.

According to Car and Driver, “The Ram isn’t just the best truck out there; it’s one of the best vehicles. Its supple ride, rich interior and fluid power delivery elevate it to a place we never thought possible for a pickup.”

The all-new 2020 Jeep Gladiator – the most capable midsize truck ever – earned a spot on Car and Driver’s 10Best list in its first attempt.

According to Car and Driver, “Every once in a while, a vehicle comes along that forces us to revisit our priorities and question ourselves. The Jeep Gladiator did that this year. It is the vehicle for having fun outdoors.”

Augmenting the Car and Driver 10Best Cars franchise, which for the past 38 years has recognized the 10 best cars on the market in each January issue, the combined 10Best Cars and Trucks award list in the February issue is organized around 10 segments. The list, based on extensive testing, recognizes one honoree from each category: subcompact SUV, subcompact luxury SUV, compact SUV, compact luxury SUV, mid-size SUV, mid-size luxury SUV, large SUV, mid-size pickup, full-size pickup and van.

Any vehicle with a base price higher than $90,000 is excluded from consideration, based on the editors’ belief that an oversize price should guarantee excellence.

2020 Ram 1500 Laramie Longhorn Review



Dec 06, 2019

The ride back was to be a laborious and deflating one. And had I not been in the new 2020 Dodge Ram 1500 Laramie Longhorn, I think I would have had less time to ponder over the dismal 10 days we had in the bush.


Regardless of your stance on it, there’s no denying that hunting is… difficult. It requires a lot of patience, stamina, and physical strength. And then there’s the suffering of lying in wait for the prey which honestly is what makes the activity so rewarding.

So you can imagine the disappointment at the end of a 10-day trip when you leave the thicket with nothing but a deflated ego and a 12-hour drive home. At least the drive back was in comfort.




FAST FACTS

Engine: 5.7L V8

Output: 395 hp, 540 lb-ft

Transmission: Eight-speed automatic

U.S. Fuel Economy (mpg): 17 city, 22 highway

CAN Fuel Economy (L/100km): 13.8 city, 10.6 highway

US Price: $ 53,385

King-Size Cabin



The interior of this truck is easily one of the most luxurious in the segment. It may seem a bit kitschy if you’re not into the whole western theme, but the quality and attention to detail is undeniable.

The real wood accents are gorgeous with a grain I have not seen before, and the burned-in Laramie Longhorn stamp on the glove compartment and stamped metal inlay on the center armrest are a really nice touch. The leather is soft to the touch, and smells even better.

With eight-way power-adjustable, heated and ventilated front seats, it’s easy to find the perfect driving position, and impossible to be uncomfortable. It made what would otherwise be an excruciatingly long road trip, a breeze.

Heated and Ventilated Rear Seats… PARDON?




Yes, you read that right; the rear seats are not only heated, but ventilated as well. Ventilated seats are the greatest invention of all time—better than heated seats—and to have that in the rear seat now is truly next level.

I did not sit in the back seat myself, but my two rear-seat passengers had no complaints. With one being a Sasquatch of a man at 6’4”, I thought he’d have a tough time back there on the 12-hour trip, but he said leg and headroom were plentiful, and the seats were comfortable.

Oh, and did I mention they’re ventilated?!
Butch Style






Style is subjective, but the Ram was always an imposing machine to behold and I’m glad to report that nothing has changed. I personally prefer its design to the other trucks out there. Despite the liberal usage of chrome, it looks quite appealing—especially thanks to the plethora of stamped logos all around the truck.
The Tech-Savvy Giant




Chrysler’s Uconnect system is one of the better infotainment systems on the market, especially when it comes to trucks. And paired with this 12.0-inch screen it jumps the ranks even higher. When using Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, it splits the screen so you can still the rest of the system. With all of the most important icons laid out at the bottom of the screen, it’s easy to access the controls you need.

Two USB connections in the front and two more in the rear make it ideal for a long road trip. No fighting ensues over who needs to charge their phone the most! It was especially handy to charge our GPS beacons every night, so we didn’t get lost in the bush.

The automatic power running boards are a fantastic feature. There were plenty of situations on the back trails around our hunt camp where permanent running boards would have scraped the ground constantly but with the running boards retracted, it was a non-issue. The speed at which they lower when you open the door is incredible as well. It’s faster than you can step down and get out. I will say though, that one was hanging a bit lower than it’s supposed to, and it makes me wonder about the longevity of them… and it’s just one more thing to break.

The remote tailgate release was fine, but it lacks the power-closing feature that trucks like the Silverado have. Opening it is the easy part… closing is where you want the power.
Suspension




The auto-leveling air suspension is a cool feature, and it impresses your buddies at the hunt camp… but it’s incredibly expensive ($1,795), and I’m not sure it’s worth the money. It’s nice to be able to raise the truck a little when you’re off-roading, but this truck with its low-profile tires and swanky rims isn’t built for off-roading anyway. You can also set it to lower when you park the car so it’s easier to get in and out, and it auto levels on the highway to give you a better fuel economy… but that’s certainly not going to save you enough money to afford this feature.
Storage/RamBox
We only had the 5’7” box, and I was worried at one point we would not be able to fit everything. I personally believe that you might as well skip the RamBox option and go for the extra room on the bed. But if you absolutely have to get one, go for the 6’4” box option as that makes more sense. In this instance, I was happy with the RamBox as it did help us keep our primary hunting equipment dry.

Since only three of us were traveling, we had to make the best use of the 60:40 split rear seats. The Ram also comes with little storage units under the mat for things you want to stow away from prying eyes.
Hemispherical Power




The 5.7-liter V8 Hemi is an incredible engine. It’s smooth and quiet when you want, yet mean and powerful when you need it to be. With 395 horsepower, and 540 lb-ft of torque (which includes 130 lb-ft from the eTorque system), the power is very linear and it has a satisfying growl when you really hammer it.

Another great feature of that eTorque technology is the seamless transition when using the auto start/stop feature. With most systems, there is a noticeable delay between when you take your foot off the brake and when the engine starts up again before you can hit the gas, but this system makes it so seamless, you can’t even tell it’s functioning.

The real-world fuel economy on the highway without a trailer was a little less than advertised at 18 mpg by the end of the 750-mile trip, but we had the truck loaded top to bottom with gear and three people so it’s about what you’d expect. On the way back with the fully loaded trailer it dropped significantly to 9 mpg.




Hunting Moose, Not Gears
The 8-speed transmission is surprisingly smooth and didn’t hunt for gears as much as I was expecting, considering the ridiculous amount of gears it needs to go through. In fact, it’s barely noticeable at all when switching gears. It’s incredibly smooth, but quick. Even when hauling a trailer, it always put itself in the right gear without shuffling to maintain the right RPM.

With the exception of the fuel tank rapidly draining (along with my bank account), while cruising on the highway, you almost forget there’s a trailer filled with 10 days worth of supplies, survival equipment, three ATVs, two generators, and enough fuel to cause a noticeable tear in the ozone layer.

It’s smooth, quiet and lane sway is minimal… until you have to brake. Still, the truck does a great job handling all that weight, and the trailer braking (which is customizable) is fantastic.

There was however absolutely no difference when in tow/haul mode while towing our trailer. I spent about 20 minutes testing the truck with that feature on and off and I could not find any discernible difference. No change in gear shifting speeds, no difference in RPM, no change with the gear the truck chose to be in at any given RPM, and no change in fuel economy. It seemed to be stuck in sixth gear while cruising regardless of which mode I was in. This could have had something to do with the fact that we were close to max towing capacity but still disappointing that tow/haul mode didn’t seem to help with anything. Having said that, the truck had no problem finding the right gear and enough power to haul a trailer up and down the steep hills of northern Ontario.

It has a towing capacity of 12,750 lb, and a payload capacity of 2300 lb; more than enough for any recreational use, and still plenty for most job sights.
A Huge Safety Tech Haul




The truck comes with a full suite of safety features including Adaptive Cruise Control, Automatic Emergency Braking, Blind Spot Monitoring, a 360-degree surround-view camera with great quality—especially so in low light—lane departure warning, and lane-keep assist.

All systems worked flawlessly except the lane-keep assist which, honestly, was quite infuriating. It doesn’t activate till you’re way over the line, it doesn’t steer you back in, and just yells at you and shakes the steering wheel, to wake you up and drive in a straight line. You cannot rely on it as you can with other systems.

I also have a bit of a gripe with the front view camera. The quality is great and very clear, but you can’t really see the front bumper so it’s hard to tell exactly how close you are to objects in front.

The adaptive cruise control is great though. Even while using a trailer, it did a surprisingly good job, and it’s almost a necessity on a 12-hour road trip.



Verdict: 2020 Ram 1500 Laramie Longhorn Review

Although the hunting trip was unsuccessful in its main purpose, it was not a total loss. The camaraderie, the beautiful sunrises and sunsets, the crisp clean air, the active sounds and sights of the forest when the animals don’t know you’re there, and the shockingly eerie silence when the forest is still: it all makes for a great experience even if you leave without meat. And of course, having a wonderfully comfortable truck for the trip doesn’t hurt.

I can only hope that next year, we can get back in this Laramie Longhorn, and if we are again unsuccessful, it will at least soothe the cruel bite of defeat.





LOVE IT
  • Cabin Space
  • Interior quality
  • Smooth ride
  • Towing capacity




LEAVE IT
  • Lane-keeping assist is infuriating
  • View from the front camera could've been better

Twice As Nice: 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 With eTorque Repeats As Wards 10 Best Engines and Propulsion Systems Winner
  • Second consecutive year for 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 with eTorque in the award-winning Ram 1500 being named to exclusive list
  • Innovative eTorque mild hybrid system features belt-driven motor generator and 48-volt battery pack; delivers six modes of operation, including seamless stop-start operation, brake regeneration and torque smoothing for luxury-quality gear changes
  • eTorque restarts the engine in the blink of an eye – less than half the time of most stop-start systems
  • 10th consecutive year and 20th year overall that FCA is represented on Wards 10 Best Engines list


December 19, 2019 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - For the second consecutive year, the fuel-saving 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 with eTorque in the Ram 1500 pickup has been named to the list of Wards 10 Best Engines and Propulsion Systems.

The Pentastar V-6 with eTorque electrification, rated at 305 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque and paired with the TorqueFlite 850RE eight-speed automatic transmission, is the standard powertrain in the popular Ram 1500.


“The Pentastar V-6 with eTorque is a great example of giving consumers electrified powertrain technology that seamlessly works with their daily lives,” said Micky Bly, Head of Global Propulsion Systems. “The standard eTorque system delivers better fuel economy without compromising power or capability.”

The eTorque mild-hybrid system replaces the traditional alternator on the engine with a belt-driven motor generator unit that performs several functions. The motor generator unit works with a 48-volt battery pack to enable improved fuel efficiency, drivability, performance and value. Six different modes of operation include quick, seamless stop-start functions and energy recovery with brake regeneration used to support increases in towing capacity and payload.

eTorque delivers nearly unnoticeable engine restarts by sending up to 90 lb.-ft. of supplemental torque to the engine crankshaft during stop-start maneuvers. Torque to the wheels travels within 400 milliseconds, more than twice as fast as many starter-motor-actuated engine stop-start systems.

“There are lots of drivers who dislike stop-start systems because the engine may turn back on with a shudder, or they might think the engine won’t restart at all. But the Ram 1500’s 48-volt eTorque system is so smooth, quiet and consistently reliable that truck owners will appreciate the technology – and the money they can save at the pump,” said Tom Murphy, WardsAuto managing editor.

The 2020 Ram 1500 with the 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 and eTorque is rated at 20 (city)/25 (highway)/22 (combined) miles per gallon (mpg) in rear-wheel drive and 19 (city)/24 (highway)/21 (combined) mpg in four-wheel-drive models by the U.S. EPA. The city mpg rating is an 18 percent improvement and the combined mpg rating a 10 percent improvement from the previous-generation model.

The 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 with eTorque is also available in the 2020 Jeep® Wrangler Sahara four-door.

With the engine running, eTorque’s motor generator unit feeds 48-volt current to a 430 watt-hour lithium-ion nickel manganese cobalt (NMC)-graphite battery. The battery pack includes a 3-kilowatt DC-to-DC converter to maintain the battery’s state of charge and convert 48 volts to 12 volts to power the Ram 1500’s accessories and charge its conventional 12-volt lead-acid battery.

In addition to spinning the engine for restarts to help launch the vehicle, eTorque also recaptures energy during deceleration and braking to charge the battery pack. eTorque also enhances the driving experience by adding torque to the crankshaft during gear changes to minimize noise, vibration and harshness (NVH).

Wards 10 Best Engines Honors For FCA
In the 26-year history of Wards 10 Best Engines, renamed Wards 10 Best Engines and Propulsion Systems for 2020, nine engines/systems produced by FCA US and its predecessor companies have accounted for 20 winners, including (engine/latest vehicles tested/years listed) in reverse
