2021 Ram 1500 Review
What makes a truck like the 2021 Ram 1500 so special? Could it be the cutting-edge tech features? Could it be the towing prowess? Maybe it’s the control you get over your attached trailer when you drive through Clinton, Adrian, and Tecumseh, Michigan. Whatever the magical combination, LaFontaine Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram (CDJR) of Clinton has equally alluring Ram inventory to match your needs.
Ram 1500 Performance
Consider what you’re looking for in capability and select the engine that mirrors that. If you choose the standard 3.6L Pentastar® V6 engine, it uses eTorque and produces 305 horsepower paired with 269 lb-ft of torque. All engine selections come with a TorqueFlite® 8-speed automatic transmission.
For drivers looking for a little more heft, think about the available 3.0L V6 EcoDiesel engine, which produces 260 horsepower. This pairs up with none other than 480 lb-ft of torque. You can also choose between two separate 5.7L HEMI® V8 engines. One uses eTorque Mild Hybrid Technology that improves fuel economy, yet they both produce 395 horsepower paired with 410 lb-ft of torque.
Ram 1500 Towing Capacity
Each engine in the Ram 1500 draws in drivers for diverse towing purposes. With the standard 3.6L engine, you can tow up to 7,730 pounds when properly equipped.
If you need to haul larger loads, look into any of the other engines. Their towing totals include 11,610 pounds when properly equipped with the one 5.7L engine, and tops out with the 5.7L engine that contains eTorque technology. It tows up to 12,750 pounds when properly equipped, which is large enough to manage big trailers filled with materials.
If you’re curious about payload, the 1500 can transport 2,300 pounds of maximum payload.
Hold your trailer steady with Trailer Sway Control and a Trailer Brake Controller, which helps keep it on an even course. You can add the available Trailer Reverse Steering Control to expertly steer your trailer in the same direction as your truck plans to go.
Ram 1500 Technology
Technology in the Ram 1500 serves more than one purpose. It can ensure that you know where you’re going with the available Uconnect® 12.0 with Navigation system and help you see what’s surrounding your truck with the 360° Surround View Camera that displays multiple angles.
When you’re trying to safely get into another lane with your truck and trailer intact, the Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Path and Trailer Detection lets you know if anything may be hiding in these areas.
When you’re trying to stay focused, but really need to know how much gas is left before you need to stop, the available Head-Up Display projects that information on the windshield. You’ll be informed and prepared without your eyes having to leave the road.
