What kind of features are offered for the 2021 Ram 1500 trim lineup?
There are seven Ram 1500 trim levels to choose from in the 2021 model year. The Tradesman starts the lineup off with a tilt/telescoping steering wheel, 18-inch steel wheels, air conditioning, a six-speaker sound system, a 5-inch touchscreen, and trailer sway damping. The upper trims add fog lights, a larger 8.4-inch or 12-inch touchscreen, Android and Apple smartphone integration, LED exterior lights, an electronic locking rear axle, more aggressive styling, a power rear window, front and rear parking sensors, a spray-in bedliner, side steps, navigation, power-deployable running boards, and a four-corner air suspension.
Could you tell me about the engine options?
Four engines make up the Ram 1500’s powertrain lineup. The standard engine is a 305 horsepower 3.6-liter V6 that generates 269 pound-feet of torque and comes with Ram’s mild-hybrid eTorque system. Drivers can also power their 1500 with the available 5.7-liter V8 that pumps out 395 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque, offered with or without the mild-hybrid system or a 3.0-liter turbodiesel that produces 260 hp and 480 lb-ft of torque. The fourth engine is only found under the hood of the new TRX trim level. This 6.2-liter supercharged V8 delivers 702 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque. All four engines are paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive is standard while four-wheel drive is available.
Could you talk about the TRX a little more?
Sitting at the top of the Ram 1500 lineup is the all-new TRX trim level. This beast was made for the toughest off-roading, outfitted with features like Launch Control, real-time performance data, five underbody skid plates, an electronic locking differential, Dana 60 solid rear axle, upgraded brakes, 35-inch all-terrain tires, a 2-inch suspension lift, and Bilstein adaptive dampers with remote reservoirs.
