2021 Ram 1500

Year by year the Ram 1500 raises the bar for quality and power in the half-ton truck market. The latest 2021 version of this popular pickup is now available for sale at our Richmond dealership, and here are the main highlights you can expect to enjoy.

Main Changes for 2021

The major powertrain and feature levels remain unchanged from 2020, but there are a few new tech options to choose from, including an advanced head-up display, trailer steering assist, and a fully digital rear-view mirror.

Huge Choice of Powertrains

No matter which power level you're looking for, there's a pickup in the Ram 1500 range to supply it. The base configuration is a 3.6L V6 with an new 48V mild hybrid system, working together to give a total output of 305 horsepower and 269lb-ft of torque. Like all the other options, this engine is paired with a smooth eight-speed transmission and all-wheel drive. An available 5.7L HEMI V8 engine provides 395hp and 410lb-ft, and can also have the mild hybrid option fitted to reduce fuel consumption without impacting the power. A 3.0L turbo diesel provides excellent torque at 460lb-ft, while the TRX trim boasts an incredible 6.2L Hellcat V8 pumping out 702 horsepower and 650lb-ft of torque, making what's undoubtedly the most powerful half-ton pickup ever generally available.

Payload Capacity and Towing

But a good pickup is about more than raw power under the hood. With the Ram 1500, the horsepower and torque translate into some excellent capability figures. The payload capacity is 1,520kg across the range, along with a stunning towing capacity of up to 5,873kg. As a workhorse, there's nothing to touch this 2021 Ram in the sector.

Interior Technology

Ram is famed for adding SUV-like levels of comfort and technology to the passenger cabin, and the 2021 version of the 1500 ups the ante once again. Touchscreens of up to 12" in size handle infotainment duties with ease, offering straightforward and intuitive access to Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and optional in-built navigation. Extra connectivity is provided by a range of USB-A and USB-C charging and data ports in both the front and second rows.
