Most sites are calling the 3/4 and 1 ton 2019+ trucks a RAM 4.5 generation truck. Not really a 5th gen like the 1500s as the cab I believe it the same. but the frames are different. And there was a huge towing ratine jump in 2019+ trucks.
My 2013 Ram 2500 Diesel, 68RFE, crew cab, short bed, 4x4 pulled my 12K toyhauler fine, even in the mountains. But this 2020 RAM 3500 HO diesel, Aisin, CC LB 4x4 dually will get me to 80+ while passing very quickly and smoothly. I do not like to dawdle passing the speed limited semi's and will accelerate to do so if traffic allows. This truck is so quiet and powerful and gains speed with little effort.
I bought this truck thinking we will buy a newer (heavier) camper in a few years. But if the prices do not come down, I will rehab my current one and spend $5k-10 on it instead.
