What Are the Features of the New 2021 RAM 2500?
The current gen of the RAM 2500 was introduced in 2019. RAM works hard to listen to their customers and it’s no surprise that the RAM Heavy Duty won the 2020 MotorTrend Truck of the Year award. This heavy-duty RAM is modern, clean, and purposeful with multiple improvements being added every year to keep it up-to-date.
The Powertrain and Suspension
The new 2021 RAM 2500 features the option of a powerful 410-hp 6.4-liter HEMI V-8 engine with 429 lb-ft of torque or the Cummins 6.7 liter turbodiesel engine with up to an insane 370hp and 850 lb-ft of torque. Clearly, if you need your truck for hauling, the RAM 2500 is the one that can handle the job!
The drivetrain of the new RAM 2500 truck’s powerful eight-speed automatic engine powers rear-wheel drive with 4WD available at the touch of a switch. With the Turbo-Diesel engine, you have the same powertrain with an Aisin-sourced six-speed automatic engine.
RAM spent a lot of time beefing up the suspension on the new 2021 RAM 2500. This heavy-duty truck has what they call Frequency Response Damping shocks which provide a better ride than most HDs with the help of the rear five-link coil springs. You can also opt for air springs to keep your truck level when loaded or when hauling a trailer.
The Cab and Bed
The new RAM 2500 offers three different cab options. In the regular cab, you have seating for two or three people. You can choose a crew cab or mega cab which will seat five or six people. All cab options have plushy interiors with noise-damping qualities to minimize exterior sounds.
You can get cloth seats or full leather seats, depending on the trim and your choice along with a heated and ventilated front bench seat or bucket seat. With the regular cab, you get an 8′ truck bed. If you choose the crew cab, you can opt for a 6’4″ bed or the longer 8′ bed. The mega cab is roomier, so you can only get it with the 6’4″ bed.
The tech available in the new 2021 RAM 2500 is outstanding with the largest-in-class 12″ touchscreen display console available (the base model screen is 5″-8.4″). Here you can access hands-free capability with Bluetooth, Android Auto smartphone, or Apple CarPlay compatibility. Some of the trims come with navigation. It has unique Uconnect features allowing you to access SiriusXM Satellite Radio or the optional Harman/Kardon Audio system. This system includes multiple speakers for the best audio experience.
The New 2021 RAM 2500 Capacity
One of the reasons for the high ratings for the new 2021 RAM 2500 is its astonishing power and capacity. Most HD pickups can’t compete with a payload of 4,010lbs thanks to the superior coil rear suspension.
The hauling capacity of the gas-powered 6.4-liter V-8 engine has the best-in-class standard being about to haul up to 17,540lbs. This version has a gross combined weight rating of up to 24,000lbs. With a Cummins 6.7 liter turbodiesel engine version that has 670 hp, the towing capacity increases to 20,000lbs!
Driver Assist and Safety Features
There is no safety rating for this huge pick-up truck since no one has seen it advisable to run it full-tilt into a wall to develop a rating. There are, however, multiple features that make it a very safe ride. Here are a few of them:
• driver and passenger airbags and optional side curtain airbags
• remote keyless Enter’n Go with push-button start
• tire pressure display
• automatic emergency braking
Multiple driver-assist features are standard, though some are optional:
• stableness management
• radar cruise control
• blind-spot monitoring
• lane-keep and steering assist
• parking sensor and 360-degree cameras
For a heavy-duty pick-up truck, the new 2021 RAM 2500 options for safety and driver comfort are indeed truly intuitive, comparable in the higher trims to a luxury vehicle!
