What engines are available for the RAM 1500?
Power is the name of the game when it comes to the RAM, and there are four engine options to choose from. Standard for most trims is a 3.6-liter V6 that pumps out 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque. The engine comes with an eTorque system that helps improve the fuel economy. Optional is a 5.7-liter V8 that rips out 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque, which is available with or without the eTorque. If you are looking for a diesel-powered engine, the RAM has one, and it’s a diesel-powered turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 that comes with 260 horsepower and 480 lb-ft of torque. The all-new TRX trim has its own powerful engine, and it’s a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 that rips out 702 horses and a whopping 650 lb-ft of torque. Each engine pairs nicely with an eight-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel-drive, with the option for four-wheel-drive if you choose.
What are some of the features?
Seven trim levels are available for the 2021 RAM 1500, and each comes with a ton of available features. Starting things out is the Tradesman, which comes with 18-inch steel wheels, air conditioning, trailer sway damping, and a 5-inch touchscreen with a six-speaker stereo. The Big Horn takes things up a notch with an 8.4-inch or 12-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Are you looking for a RAM with incredible off-road prowess? Then the Rebel is your best bet as it comes with hill descent control, four underbody skid plates, an electronic locking rear axle, upgraded shocks, and all-terrain tires. The most luxurious items on the RAM are the Laramie and Longhorn, as they come with power mirrors, leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, side steps, reclining heated rear seats with under storage, and a spray-in bedliner with in-bed lighting. The Limited adds to this with a standard 12-inch touchscreen and 5.7-liter V8, four-corner air suspension, wireless charging pad, and premium leather bucket seats. Last but not least is the TRX, which is new this year and comes with a head-up display, reverse steering control, and RamBox cargo storage.
What can you tell me about the safety features?
RAM is dedicated to keeping you safe both on and off the road, which is why the massive pickup comes with all the latest safety systems. Available is a Lane Keeping Assist system that helps you steer the RAM back into its lane if it happened to drift outside the painted lines. Also available is a Surround-View Camera system, which gives the driver views from the top of the truck and its surroundings so you can get in and out of tight parking situations. The last system we will talk about is the Adaptive Cruise Control System, which allows the driver to maintain a pre-set distance between the RAM and the traffic ahead of it.
