Ram 1500 Dimensions

 
  
  


Among the most important things to look at when you’re on the hunt for your next pickup truck are its dimensions. Examining the dimensions of a pickup truck will give insight into how the vehicle will feel to drive, if it will fit in your parking spot or garage, how much cargo space you’ll have, and more.

In this Ram 1500 dimensions guide, we at Dallas Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram (DCJR) will give you a detailed overview of the exterior and interior dimensions of this specific model. Shoppers in Dallas, Garland, and Arlington should read on to learn more!


2020 Ram 1500 Interior

2020 Ram 1500 Quad Cab

Spacious Cabin Dimensions

The 2020 Ram 1500 offers two cab options—a Quad Cab and a Crew Cab. Both cab options offer standard seating for five but can seat up to six passengers if you desire.

No matter which one you choose, you and your family members, friends, or worksite partners will have plenty of wiggle room inside the cabin with the following dimensions:

Quad Cab

Crew Cab

Front / Rear Headroom

40.9 inches / 39.2 inches

40.9 inches / 39.8 inches

Front / Rear Hip Room

63.4 inches / 63.4 inches

63.4 inches / 63.4 inches

Front / Rear Legroom

40.9 inches / 35.6 inches

40.9 inches / 45.2 inches

Front / Rear Shoulder room

66.0 inches / 65.7 inches

66.0 inches / 65.7 inches

As you can see, both models offer ample space. However, the Crew Cab, as its name implies, may be better suited for your jobs at the worksite with the crew, thanks to its best-in-class rear-seat legroom.

The Quad Cab, while spacious, is a better fit for adventurous families. The kids will have more than enough room to spread out and enjoy the ride in the rear row of seats in the Quad Cab.


Ram 1500 Cargo Options

Inside the cabin of the Ram 1500, you’ll find an expansive amount of cargo space for stowing all your items. In total, you’ll have more than 151 liters of cargo space inside the cabin, thanks to its many inventive cargo options.

For starters, you can opt for available in-floor storage, which gives you plenty of space for backpacks, overnight bags, lunchboxes, and more. You won’t have to sacrifice any of your legroom or leave anything behind.

Still need more space for cargo inside the cabin? The Ram 1500 gives it to you in the form of reclining rear seats with eight degrees of slide recline and available under-seat storage.

To top it all off, the Ram 1500 offers an available reconfigurable center console. No matter what kind of cargo items you have to stow, you’ll be able to configure your center console to meet your specific needs.

Inside the console, you’ll easily be able to stow a 15-inch laptop computer, up to five smartphones while they charge, and even a bin for hanging file folders. Your Ram 1500 can serve as a mobile office, an adventure-ready machine, or a little of both, with its endless in-cabin storage options.

The rear seat of the Ram 1500 also offers an available fold-down center console. When you don’t need the middle rear seat, fold it down to store drinks and other small items, like cellphones, in the secure cubbies. You’ll also have quite a bit of space in the console between the seats to store larger items like handbags, briefcases, and lunchboxes.

Bed Options & Dimensions

The 2020 Ram 1500 offers two different bed options to choose from, including a 5-foot, 7-inch box and a 6-foot, 4-inch box. With both options, you’re going to have plenty of space inside the bed to fit all kinds of cargo items, including big toys, like 4-wheelers and dirt bikes, as well as huge hauls of home-improvement project supplies.

When you opt for the bigger 6-foot, 4-inch box option, you’ll have 61.5 cubic feet of cargo space in the bed. Even with the available Class-Exclusive RamBox® Cargo Management system, you’ll be able to fit several 4×8 sheets of plywood in the bed.

This ingenious cargo storage system can be permanently affixed to the sides of the bed, providing reliable storage options. Inside these spacious bins, you’ll be able to store tools, so you have them when you need them. If you take the Ram 1500 tailgating, fill up these compartments with ice for drinks and food. Then, they’ll be secured through the tailgate and after you’ve gone into the stadium.

Additionally, there’s no need to unload and reload your items from these storage bins. They can be securely locked, so you’ll never have to wonder if your tools are safe, no matter where you have your Ram pickup parked.

When properly equipped, the Ram 1500 can handle up to 2,300 pounds of payload capacity in the bed of the truck. Combine this payload capacity with the amount of space you have in the bed and your project capabilities become virtually endless.

Load up the family dirt bikes or snowmobiles and set out on a grand weekend adventure. Or, transform the bed into a luxurious movie-watching spot with pillows and blankets for the whole family at the drive-in theater. If you need to get some work done around the house, fill the bed with fresh mulch or gravel and take on a rewarding DIY landscaping project.


Overall Exterior Dimensions

The size and shape of the 2020 Ram 1500 is entirely dependent on the cab and bed options that you choose. However, the difference between the options isn’t drastic, as you’ll see in the exterior dimensions chart below:

Front / Rear Track Width

68.5 inches / 68.1 inches

Overall Body Height

77.5 inches – 77.6 inches

Overall Body Length

228.9 inches – 232.9 inches

Overall Body Width

82.1 inches

Running Ground Clearance

8.4 inches

Wheelbase

140.5 inches – 144.5 inches

As you can see, no matter which bed and cab configuration you go with, you’ll still have a Ram 1500 that’s spacious, sporty, and enjoyable to drive. This model straddles the line between capable and nimble for success on and off the pavement.

The robust exterior design of the Ram 1500 makes it possible to accommodate a powerful engine made for getting the job done. Under the hood of the Ram 1500, you’ll find one of four engines, including an available 5.7L HEMI® V8 engine with eTorque Hybrid Technology.

Thanks to this engine’s Herculean power output and 98% high-strength steel frame, you’ll be able to tow up to 12,750 pounds of trailer weight when this vehicle is properly equipped. That’s more than enough capability for towing excavators from one worksite to another or the family hard-side camper to the lake every other weekend.

Another exterior dimensional spec to consider is that of the fuel tank. This model comes equipped with a 26-gallon fuel tank on Quad Cab models powered by either the 5.7L HEMI® engine or 3.0L EcoDiesel® engine. With an inordinate amount of space for fuel on board, your stops will be few and far between, so you’ll be able to enjoy every journey.


Ram 1500 Wheel Options

Ram 1500 Dimensions

As we saw in the section above, the 2020 Ram 1500 boasts a standard running ground clearance of 8.4 inches. However, that variable is based on the wheels you choose for your pickup truck. Essentially, the larger your wheels are, the higher your ground clearance is.

The Ram 1500 offers 20 different wheel options ranging from 18-inch Steel-painted wheels to monster 22-inch Black-painted aluminum wheels. Depending on what you plan to use your Ram 1500 for, you’ll want to weigh your priorities—larger wheels make off-roading a lot easier, but it can affect fuel economy while you’re on the pavement. Thankfully, you’ll have five different wheel sizes to choose from.

The tires you choose to equip your Ram 1500 can also affect the ground clearance dimensions of this vehicle. For example, the standard P18-inch BSW all-season tires of the Tradesman trim level will provide you with the standard 8.4 inches of ground clearance.

However, if you size up to, say, the available P20-inch OWL all-season tires offered in the Sport Appearance Package of the Laramie trim, you’ll have a bit more ground clearance to work with. There are several other larger tires available as well, including P22-inhc BSW all-season tires and monster on-/off-Road 33-inch tires, which provide you with the most ground clearance possible.


Experience the 2020 Ram 1500

As you can see, the Ram 1500 is an ingeniously designed pickup truck meant to be both fun and functional. Whether you’re looking for a reliable partner for on the worksite, a weekend warrior, or something that falls between the two, the Ram 1500 is an excellent option.
