Brought to You by Dave Smith Motors

Yet again setting the benchmark for convenience, performance, efficiency, technology, and durability, the Ram 1500 is a full-size pickup truck that can do it all! In the 2021 model year, the Ram 1500 offers so much more with outstanding towing and payload capacities, a mild-hybrid powertrain system that improves fuel efficiency, the latest technology features, and modern safety equipment. To learn more about what Ram is bringing to the 1500 full-size pickup truck in the 2021 model year, keep reading down below!

New Special Edition

Ram is adding a new Special Edition to the 2021 1500 lineup. This Limited Longhorn 10th Anniversary Edition boasts exclusive exterior features like a new graphic upon start-up and badging on the console, instrument panel, floor mats, seats, tailgate, and doors. Inside the Special Edition, the truck comes equipped with unique Berber carpet, speaker grilles, center stack surround, trim bezels, seat insert, and a metal pedal kit. The cabin also comes dipped in a Mountain Brown color that is simply gorgeous.

New Technology

There are a number of new technology features for the 2021 model year. First up, Ram outfits the truck with an all-new Head-up Display (HUD) that is a first for any FCA vehicle! This optional, full-color feature showcases up to five different pieces of information vital to the driver. What is shown can be customized via the Uconnect 4C infotainment system. Information that can be shown include the speed limit, current gear, current speed, navigation, adaptive cruise control, and more! Another new piece of technology found in the cabin is the digital rearview mirror. This 9.2-inch wide LCD monitor displays a real-time video of what is happening behind the rear of the truck. It can be turned off, allowing the mirror to function traditionally.

New Towing Technology

Towing is one of the most important parts of the Ram 1500 and new features make the task easier and safer! Joining the Trailer Package is Trailer Reverse Steering Control that allows the driver to enter some measurements before the camera tracks the trailer position. All drivers have to do is turn the dial to the left or the right, in the direction they want the trailer to go, and the steering wheel will take care of the rest. Other features added to the Trailer Package include Trailer Tire Pressure Monitoring and Trailer Light Check. Another new feature offered for towing are power-fold trailer mirrors!

New Safety Features

Ram also offers more safety features for the 2021 model. They include Full-Speed Collision Warning Plus which comes standard on many trim levels. The truck brand also added Pedestrian Detection to the available Advanced Safety Group which encompasses features like Parallel/Perpendicular Park Assist, 360-degree Surround View camera, automatic high beams, Lane Keep Assist, and Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go.
