2020 Ram 5500 Engine Specs
When you’re building your 2020 Ram 5500, you’ll have two powerful engines to pick from:
- 6.4L HEMI® V8
- 6.7L Cummins® turbo diesel
Whether you choose the gas- or diesel-powered engine, you’ll have some impressive capability to bring to the worksite. The 6.4L HEMI® V8, for example, produces 410 horsepower and 429 lb-ft of torque. The 6.7L Cummins® turbo diesel engine, on the other hand, generates 360 horsepower and an impressive 800 lb-ft of torque.
Both powertrains balance their impressive output with the AISIN® 6-speed automatic transmission that optimizes shift points for improved performance and utility.
You’ll also get your pick between a 4×2 (rear-wheel drive) or a 4×4 (4-wheel drive) drivetrain. The 4×2 drivetrain tends to increase towing capacity while the 4×4 system can maximize your handling capabilities when traveling along snowy highways or even when taking it off-road.
The part-time 4×4 drivetrain includes a manual or electronic shift-on-the-fly transfer case that lets you switch between 4×2 and 4×4 based on your needs.
Ram Chassis Cab High-Tech Interior Features
Now that we’ve looked under the hood, let’s climb inside the cabin of the Ram 5500. The 2020 model of this heavy-duty chassis cab comes equipped with all the features you need to stay comfortable and connected during the long haul.
An available 5-inch or 8.4-inch touchscreen display in the center stack acts as your command center. It includes standard Bluetooth® wireless connectivity with integrated voice command. This feature allows you to wirelessly connect your smartphone or other device with your truck’s speakers.
Then, drivers can stay in touch with coworkers, service centers, fueling stations, and anyone else they may need to contact while out on the road without ever taking their hands off the wheel. You can also stream your favorite tunes from your device.
Optional heated seats add an extra layer of comfort when you get an early start on the day on a cold winter morning.
Versatile Styles for the Ram 5500
Not only is the interior comfortable and high-tech, it’s also configurable. Your cabin comes in two styles:
- Regular Cab
- Crew Cab
The Regular Cab seats up to three passengers along the bench seat in the front. Meanwhile, the Crew Cab is a 2-row cabin that can bring along up to six passengers, including the driver.
The second-row seat in the Crew Cab provides versatile storage options. You can fold the seat up to reveal under-seat storage bins. With the rear seat up, fold out the versatile cargo flooring to create a flat load floor that’ll hold additional building materials and other items.
Now, looking at the exterior, the Ram 5500 chassis cab gives you up 31 different paint colors. This allows you to dress your truck to match your business’s branding. Color options include: Bright White, Light Green, National Safety Yellow, and Midnight Blue Pearl.
