After the recent redesign, which has brought tons of novelties, the Ram 1500 is highly competitive once again. However, that doesn’t mean that engineers from Chrysler are done with novelties. The third production year will also bring novelties. We are about to see a new hi-performance version, but that probably won’t be the only novelty for the 2021 Dodge Ram.
Additionally, we could see novelties in terms of standard equipment, as well as minor styling enhancements, in terms of new colors and similar things. Still, we don’t expect to see the new model on the market much earlier than usual.
- Luxurious cabin
- Excellent towing and hauling ratings
- Powerful engines
- Smooth ride
- V8 engines are pretty thirsty
- Rivals are traditionally more reliable
In terms of the exterior design, the 2021 Dodge Ram probably won’t change too much. Simply, the recent redesign has brought some pretty significant changes, including completely new styling changes. For the first time in decades, you can’t see the famous crosshair grille.
The new design is different, though the new model didn’t lose too much of Ram’s recognizable flavor. Also, the recent redesign has brought a completely new platform, which is characterized by more intense use of lightweight materials, which ensures better performances, overall efficiency, etc. All in all, there is no too much things to expect from the 2021 Dodge Ram in terms of novelties.
The same thing goes for interior design. The recent redesign has brought a lot of novelties, so the new model features arguably the nicest cabin in the class. The overall interior quality is impressive.
There are soft and fine surfaces all around the cabin, while the dashboard looks very opulent, thanks to a full load of advanced technologies. The 2021 Dodge Ram could get a couple of additions in terms of standard equipment but all in all, we don’t expect to see many more things that a couple of new standard features.
This is the aspect where we expect to see big novelties. According to the latest reports, the performance-oriented Rebel trim is about to get a new engine. Although essentially an off-roader, this model isn’t as capable as rivals like Ford Raptor and Toyota TRD Pro.
Therefore, FCA figured out another way to stay out. Of course, they will do what they do best, which means adding plenty of horsepowers. Latest reports suggesting that the 2021 Dodge Ram Rebel will come with a famous 6.2-liter Hellcat Supercharged engine, which features a max output of more than 700 horsepower. The rest of the lineup should remain the same, which would mean familiar V6 and Hemi V8 engines, as well as an inline-six turbodiesel.
2021 Dodge Ram Release Date and Price
When it comes to the 2021 Dodge Ram release date, we presume the new Rebel will come a little bit earlier, while the rest of the lineup should come in a typical time of year. Base models will go around $28,000.
