HEAD-TURNING BY DESIGN

KEEP ‘EM IN SIGHT

The power fold trailer tow mirrors, now available with the available 360° Surround View Camera, flip out to give you exceptional visibility around whatever you might be towing and fold in when you need to maneuver in tight spaces.

MULTIFUNCTION TAILGATE

The available multifunction tailgate has been engineered with two doors that swing open 88°, offering easy access to your bed while maintaining the robustness you need on the job and in the field.

POWER FOR THE LONG HAUL

SMART TOWING TECHNOLOGY

Peace of mind is essential, especially while towing. That’s why we continue to innovate with advanced and helpful available towing features like the new Trailer Tire Pressure Monitoring, Trailer Light Check and the Trailer-Tow Power-Fold Mirrors with an available 360° Surround View Camera.

TOW WITH CONFIDENCE

The available 5.7L HEMI® V8 engine with Class-Exclusive eTorque Mild Hybrid Technology offers a gas towing capacity of up to 12,750 pounds, so you have the ability to tow what you need where you need it.

ENGINEERED FOR PEACE OF MIND

INNOVATIVE TRAILERING FEATURES

The 2021 Ram 1500 features Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Path and Trailer Detection that scans blind spot zones beside and behind your vehicle, Electronic Stability Control to help retain control of brakes and engine power, Electronic Roll Mitigation to help keep your truck centered as you move and Hill Start Assist to retain braking pressure if you need to start up when stopped in gear on a steep grade.

SMART BRAKING TECHNOLOGY

Command your truck with serious stopping power. Available Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking (FCW+) helps mitigate potential collisions while giving drivers more time to react. FCW+ can bring the vehicle to a full stop, if necessary. Available Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go (ACC+) detects vehicles ahead. If increased braking is needed in slower traffic, ACC+ will automatically apply the brakes to a set distance.

Can you tell me about the Ram 1500’s features?

Ram delivers seven 1500 trim levels in the 2021 model year. The base Tradesman model is outfitted with tons of great features like an adjustable steering wheel, air conditioning, a 5-inch touchscreen, 18-inch steel wheels, trailer sway damping, and  6-speaker sound system. The higher up trim levels build on that with features like fog lights, smartphone integration, LED exterior lighting, larger touchscreen options, heated/ventilated front seats, leather upholstery, a power rear window, navigation, power-deployable running boards, a wireless charging pad, and more. Ram outfits the TRX trim level for optimal performance when off-roading.

Could you talk about the engine options?

In the 2021 model year, there are four engine options available to choose from when powering the Ram 1500. The standard engine is a Pentastar 3.6L V6 that produces up to 269 lb-ft of torque and 305 hp. This engine is boosted with Ram’s eTorque mild-hybrid technology. Up next is the available 5.7L V8 (offered with or without the eTorque system) that generates 410 lb-ft of torque and 395 hp. The third engine option is a EcoDiesel 3.0L V6 that creates 480 lb-ft of torque and 260 hp. The last engine is housed exclusively in the TRX trim. This supercharged 6.2L V8 pumps out 650 lb-ft of torque and 702 hp. Both RWD and 4WD configurations are available for all engine options.

What about the Ram 1500’s safety features?

No matter where the Ram 1500 is headed, it offers safety features that will take care of the driver and passengers inside the cabin. Stand out safety features in the 2021 model year include the reverse steering control which controls the truck’s steering wheel in a certain direction, guiding the trailer to its destination with a dashboard mounted knob and adaptive cruise control that can adjust the truck’s speed to maintain a set distance from the vehicle ahead. Other driver aids offered for the Ram 1500 lineup include lane keeping assist, a head-up display to keep you eyes on the road and hands on wheel, and a surround-view 360-degree parking system.
