2021 Ram 1500
The Ram 1500 isn't a truck that's much appreciated by rival manufacturers. It consistently provides greater power and more features at a lower price, leaving other half-ton trucks struggling to keep pace. There's a new 2021 version for sale at our Prince Rupert dealership, and here's why the 1500 pickup makes a better buy than ever.
Changes for 2021
The basic powertrain options are unchanged for 2021, but exciting new features like a head-up display, trailer steering assist system, and an all-digital rear view mirror means the Ram 1500 ups the pickup ante once again.
There's a huge range of engine options available to power the Ram 1500. The standard engine is a 3.6L V6 supplemented by a 48-volt mild-hybrid system, generating a hefty 305 horsepower and 269lb-ft of torque. A 5.7L V8 pushes the horses up to 395hp with 410lb-ft, and is also available with the mild-hybrid to improve the fuel economy without any effect on performance. There's also a 3.0L turbodiesel V6 which drops the horsepower to 260hp but pushes the torque up to 480lb-ft. And lastly, for real power fiends, there's a 6.2L Hellcat V8 with astonishing figures of 702hp and 650lb-ft, although this mill is only available on the high-end, off-road TRX model. All in all, however much oomph you need under the hood, there's a Ram 1500 that'll deliver.
Depending on the trim level, the supplied infotainment touchscreen will either be an entry-level 5" design, an 8" version, or a luxurious 12" display. The two larger screens both offer Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard, with navigation an option on the 8" or standard on the 12". Audio systems can have six, ten, or 19 speakers, and there are USB-A and USB-C ports on both rows giving convenient connectivity to the whole crew.
The advanced tech continues into the active safety systems, with standard and available highlights including: • Forward collision warnings with automatic emergency braking. • Trailer sway control. • Lane keeping assist. • Adaptive cruise control • Blind spot monitoring. On the higher-end trims, there's also a semi-autonomous parking system and a 360-degree camera to round out the safety package.
