How the 2021 Ram 1500 Changed the Full-Size Pickup Truck Class
The full-size pickup truck class is filled with models that have been carefully crafted over many years. There are many trucks that perfectly blend capability, convenience, and comfort. However, none of them do it as well as the 2021 Ram 1500.
The 2021 Ram 1500 offers a level of quality and craftsmanship to drivers in Manotick and across Canada that they cannot get anywhere else. Ram has spent a lot of time listening to what pickup truck drivers want and need, feeding those things into the well-rounded and well-equipped Ram 1500.
The most significant new development for the Ram 1500 in 2021 was the introduction of the Hellcat-powered Ram 1500 TRX. However, on the half-ton lineup, Ram also added some new and unique options.
A head-up display, fully digital rearview mirror, and a feature that controls the truck's steering when backing up to a trailer are all new features for 2021.
Built with 98% high-strength steel, the exterior of the 2021 Ram 1500 is as powerful as it is stylish. The Ram's exterior is designed to turn heads, with a unique grille, elevated hood, and chrome accents that set it apart from the competition.The interior is as aesthetically pleasing as the exterior. Drivers will feel like they are riding in a luxury vehicle with Ram's attention to detail in this functional, ergonomic layout with plenty of passenger and storage space.
The 2021 Ram 1500 offers five engine options of which the 3.6-litre Pentastar V6 engine with eTorque comes standard on Tradesman and Big Horn models, the 5.7-litre HEMI V8 comes standard on Sport, Rebel, Laramie, Limited Longhorn, and Limited models, and the 6.2-litre Supercharged HEMI V8 comes standard on the TRX. Two additional options are the 5.7-litre HEMI V8 with eTorque and 3.0-litre Ecodiesel V6. All pair with a smooth-shifting eight-speed automatic transmission, and all models offer light steering and strong brakes for relaxed cruising and confident stops.
A responsive 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system comes standard on the 2021 Ram 1500, along with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a mobile hotspot, in addition to numerous charging outlets.
The 2021 Ram 1500 offers over 100 standard and available safety and security features, such as blind-spot detection, a forward-collision warning system, and a 360-degree surround view system to keep drivers, passengers, pedestrians, and other vehicles safe.
