The competition in the full-size pickup truck market is as hot as Phoenix in July, but the 2021 Ram 1500 stands out as a top choice for several compelling reasons. In addition to excellent performance, a luxurious ride, and unbeatable off-road capabilities, the Ram offers a fine selection of stylish and innovative trims. This year's model offers a few changes and upgrades, including an available snowplow preparation kit, standard forward collision warning, and the exciting new TRX model. The addition of the TRX with its supercharged V8 engine is undoubtedly worthy of headline news. The Ram 1500 is off to a swift start, and it is already gaining points over the Ford F-150, which is of no surprise as the Ram is nearly flawless in every category. The Ram is a competent truck with plenty of power, performance, and a high-quality interior.
The Ram is offered with several engine choices, but all are paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Rear-wheel drive is standard across the board, and four-wheel drive is available as an option. The standard engine in the Ram 1500 is a 3.6-liter V6, which is supported by Ram's eTorque mild hybrid system for added off-the-line power. The standard engine offers 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque, and you can expect to get an estimated 20 MPG in the city and 25 MPG on the highway; those numbers are slightly lower on the four-wheel-drive models.
There is also an available 3.0-liter turbodiesel V6 that boasts 260 horsepower and 480 lb-ft of torque. The estimated fuel economy for this engine is 22 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway. Again, these numbers are slightly lower should you choose the four-wheel-drive model.
You can also choose the 5.7-liter V8, which is available with or without the eTorque hybrid assist. Whether you choose the hybrid option or not, the 5.7-liter V8 cranks out 395 horsepower with 410 lb-ft of torque. While the horsepower remains the same with or without the hybrid assistance, fuel efficiency and low-end power are better with the option. Should you opt for the eTorque system, you can expect to get an estimated 17 MPG in the city and 23 MPG on the highway. You will get an estimated fuel economy of 15 MPG in the city and 22 MPG on the highway without the hybrid option. The max tow rating also increases from 11,650 pounds to 12,750 pounds.
We will include the 6.2-liter Hellcat V8 offered in the TRX because it is such an impressive engine. If you are looking for raw performance and power that is off the charts, the Hellcat is the way to go. This bad boy kicks out a whopping 702 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. It will take your TRX from 0 to 60 mph in an impressive 4.1 seconds, making it the fastest production truck you will ever drive.
To say that the interior of the Ram 1500 is comfortable and spacious would be an understatement. The interior of the Ram 1500 is big, and you can expect outstanding luxury with all of the room you need to enjoy the ride. There is also a vast amount of storage space for all of the knick-knacks and electronics you bring along on your road adventures. Passengers are sure to appreciate the best-in-class legroom - all 45.2 inches of it.
The Uconnect infotainment system in the Ram is one of the best in the industry. A 5-inch touchscreen is standard, but you can also opt for the 8.4-inch touchscreen or the massive 12-inch HD display. The larger display screens come with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to enhance your driving experience in a safe manner. The 12-inch touchscreen boasts split-screen technology as well as a pinch and zoom feature.
The higher trim levels offer interiors with upscale features like ventilated seats, premium leather surfaces, and genuine wood accents. The interior is so lovely that you will quickly forget that you are driving a truck. Ram boasts one of the most luxurious interiors in its class, and it is easy to see why they would make such a statement. With the available head-up display, you can keep your eyes on the road while viewing stats such as your speed, navigation, and incoming calls. The digital rearview mirror even features an LCD monitor that provides real-time video captured by a rear-facing camera.
The 2021 Ram 1500 enjoys a five-star crash-test rating from the National Highway Safety Administration. Additionally, the 2021 model offers a few new safety features that will help make your commute safer. The arrival of pedestrian detection will be greatly appreciated, especially if you spend a lot of time driving in a crowded city. Blind-spot monitoring ensures safe lane changes and is most helpful while pulling a trailer. A guided parking feature takes the guesswork and anxiety out of parallel parking. And the available 360-degree Surround View Camera makes hooking up a trailer a cinch, even for drivers new to towing.
There is a lot of interest in the Ram 1500 trim levels, mainly because they offer a wide range of features. The entry-level Tradesman is available as a quad or crew-cab, and you can either choose the short bed or long bed. The Ram Big Horn is a step above the Tradesman and enjoys an available 12-inch touchscreen, a power driver seat, and in-floor storage bins. This trim level is a nice mix of technology and comfort.
The Laramie is a nice jump up and features 18-inch alloy wheels, a 7-inch cluster display, and heated front seats with a heated steering wheel. The Night Edition package adds a lot of style to the Ram and features an all-black grille, exhaust tips, and black wheels. Next up, the Limited Longhorn features bold chrome accents, front row tow hooks, and interior leather and Barnwood accents. In addition, the Limited Longhorn also includes rear seats that recline and a fold-down center console.
For those who seek adventure and off-road challenges in their Ram 1500, the Rebel trim will suit you nicely. The factory lift and all-terrain tires help you through the most demanding territory, and the locking rear axle helps make off-road adventures an experience like no other. The interior is a stylish black and red color combo with a standard 8.4-inch touchscreen and digital cluster display.
The Limited trim has everything you could ever want in a truck. Yes, it comes with a monster-sized 12-inch screen with navigation, chrome wheels, and a 19-speaker premium audio system by Harman Kardon. It is truly luxurious inside and out but practical as well. The Active Level Four Corner Air Suspension also goes a long way in making your ride comfortable.
This is what many of you came to read; the details of the Ram 1500 TRX. Rumor has it that the TRX is the most powerful street-legal pickup to date. There isn't anyone who would disagree that the TRX doles out exceptional power and performance. But the truck is much more than a powerhouse, to be sure.
The TRX is just as stylish as it is intimidating. The body is eight inches wider than the regular Ram 1500 and features a scooped hood and bulging fenders. Sure it looks aggressive, that was the idea, but there is a subtle beauty buried within. The massive all-terrain tires stand out for sure, especially since they are mounted on 18-inch wheels that increase ground clearance.
The interior of the TRX is refined and luxurious. And while the standard upholstery is cloth, there are upgrades that include leather and microsuede options as well as carbon fiber accents. You can also opt for other luxury features, including a heads-up display and heated seats. Face it, anyone choosing options for the TRX is going to have a lot of fun.
