2020 RAM 1500: Multifunction Tailgate and Towing Technology


Multifunction Tailgate and Towing Features

The days of the old, chain-attached tailgate are long gone. Today’s truck owner demands the flexibility of an SUV, with the ruggedness of pick-up, and comfort of a luxury sedan. For 2020, RAM has introduced a re-engineered and revolutionary 60/40-split, multifunction tailgate. It offers multiple ways of accessing the RAM 1500 bed – with the toughness to handle loads up to 2,000-pounds.

The 2020 RAM 1500 is packed with tailgate configurations and added towing technology. Let’s take a closer look at the RAM 1500 Multifunction Tailgate and towing features that Fresno, CA truck shoppers can explore in person at Gill Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM.

The 60/40-Split Tailgate

The Multifunction Tailgate is a 60/40-split design, that provides RAM 1500 owners the flexibility to access the cargo bed. The tailgate swing-away doors open to angles approaching 88-degrees and can likewise drop down like the traditional tailgate.

This unique configuration allows you to gain access to the bed while loading bulky or larger items. Additionally, you’ve got the added flexibility to load items into the bed without sliding over the tailgate or reaching over.

The available RAMBox® Cargo Management System offers versatile, weatherproof, lockable, illuminated and drainable storage bins on each side of the bed.

Keep the Trailer Hitched

The RAM 1500 Multifunction Tailgate makes towing with a trailer simple. The new 60/40-split configuration permits truck owners to keep their trailers hitched and still access the cargo inside the bed. Also, with a cargo capacity of 2,000-pounds, 2020 RAM 1500 owners can load with confidence and convenience.
