The Ram 1500 has been one of the top-performing pickup trucks on the market for years. With the 2021 model's upgrades, you'll enjoy even more power, technology, versatility, and luxury. Drivers in New City, Nanuet, and Pearl River can learn more with this 2021 Ram 1500 review from Rockland CDJR.

Performance and Towing Capacity

The Ram 1500 is available with two powertrains and four engine choices. The base engine is a 305-horsepower 3.6-liter V-6 that pairs with an eight-speed automatic transmission and four-wheel drive. With this engine, you can tow up to 7,710 pounds. Available upgrades include a 5.7-liter V-8 that boasts 395 horsepower and 410 pound-feet of torque, rated to tow up to 12,750 pounds.

Another option is the 3.0-liter turbodiesel with 280 horsepower and 480 pound-feet of torque, which is rated to tow 12,560 pounds. Finally, a 6.2-liter supercharged V-8 with 702 horsepower is an option for the TRX off-road model. A mild-hybrid assist system is optional for the V-8 engine and standard for the V-6.

Interior Space and Comfort

The Ram 1500 is available in extended- and crew-cab models with four doors, as well as a two-door model. A 5-foot-7 or 6-foot-4 bed is available for the crew cab, while the extended cab only offers a 6-foot-4 bed. Optional cargo equipment includes cargo tie-downs, a spray-in bed liner, and a multi-function tailgate.

The purpose-built base model comes with comfortable bench seats and few creature comforts, but the models get more luxurious from there. Most Ram models come with front bucket seats, a wide console, and a cavernous rear seat that fits up to three passengers with ample head- and legroom. Some models also offer reclining rear seats.

Technology and Safety

The Ram 1500 is available with a bevy of safety equipment, especially for towing. You can get features such as automatic braking, which applies the brakes to avoid a crash, and adaptive cruise control, which adjusts your cruise speed to maintain a safe distance from other vehicles. A surround-view camera system is another option that's helpful for towing and gives you a 360-degree view of the area around your truck and hookup.

The Ram's versatility is among its biggest draws. You can choose from a variety of trim levels and optional features that personalize your driving experience, such as an 8.4-inch touch screen with smartphone connection to stream music and media, leather upholstery, heated and ventilated seats, and interior design upgrades. A 12-inch touchscreen infotainment system is also available, which gives you a massive screen for media and surround-view camera images.
