Full-Size Pickup Powertrain Comparison 

Drivers shopping from the 2020 Ram 1500 lineup choose from the standard V6 or an available V8 engine. A turbodiesel V6 is also available for those that prefer a diesel fix.

  • 3.6L V6 (305 hp, 269 lb-ft)
  • 5.7L V8 (395 hp, 410 lb-ft)
  • 3.0L turbodiesel V6 (260 hp, 480 lb-ft)

The 2020 Nissan TITAN sticks to one gas V8 engine across the entire lineup:
