According to the first information, 2021 RAM 1500 will not significantly change the design or appearance. The main change that inevitably affects the usage of the truck should be under the hood. The manufacturer has announced a new eco-diesel engine that should beat up the competition. As we know, it is not easy, since both Toyota and Ford have upgraded their models from this class.
- The model is large and impressively attractive.
- There are high engines in offer, along with the new eco-diesel engine.
- The model has designed a cabin.
- There is no impressive technology in the cabin.
Besides the small changes in design that follow upgrading of the model, 2021 RAM 1500 comes as a slightly stable version for the future. It inevitably recalls on Ford F-150, being its more considerable competition, and still not much different from the models in the class.
The front end could be slightly more comprehensive and more aggressive, but the truck is soft and gentle, with short front end and sharp edges. There are new front lights and changes in taillights, too.
When it comes to design, the cabin in 2021 RAM 1500 has undergone significant changes. It is more luxury now, with optional leather on the seats and vital details in chrome.
The manufacturer has upgraded technology, adding a massive 12-inch touchscreen and better entertainment program. On the other hand, the eco-diesel version offers the same features as the petrol one, in spite of high expectations from fans.
Like the old model, 2021 RAM 1500 retains the same petrol engine known among the models in this class, like Toyota Tacoma. It is 3.6-liter V6 with 305 horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque.
On the other hand, there is a new 5.7-liter V8 with an incredible 395 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. We are sure, although the manufacturer has not confirmed that the last year’s 90-horsepower hybrid engine will be offered again.
The most attractive, though, is a new V6 EcoDiesel engine with 260 horsepower and 480 pound-feet of torque. It looks like the old eco-diesel model, but this time slightly stronger and has more torque than before. Also, it could tow more pounds than before.
2021 RAM 1500 Release Date and Price
2021 RAM 1500 comes at the beginning of the next year, and as we know, the market will not be pleasant to it. The intense competition that increases the expectations surely does not help. On the other hand, a lot of things are on the sides of the RAM so far.
It should have a price of $28,000 without additions and equipment and $31,000 if the buyer chooses an eco-diesel model. On the other hand, there are rumors that the manufacturer has made an extreme version of it, called Rebel TRX, with impressive features. It could cost around $60,000 or even more.
