Ram engineers have always been true masters when it comes to building HD trucks and the current generation is no exception. It has been around for less than two years, so we presume that the next year won’t bring any particular change. We are about to see a familiar layout, characterized by many great thins. The 2021 Dodge Ram 3500 will continue to be one of the most capable models in the class.
Speaking of strong points, Ram trucks have always been famous for impressive capabilities. The current model is no exception, but it stands out in many other ways too. For example, it features the nicest cabin in the class, while the ride quality is also pretty impressive. Finally, there are two pretty capable engines in the offer.
All in all, the next year shouldn’t bring any particular change. The current generation is still very fresh for bigger updates, though a couple of small novelties are definitely possible. Some of the things that come to mind are new color options, interior features etc. We expect that the 2021 Dodge Ram 3500 release date will be scheduled for the last quarter of the year.
2021 Dodge Ram 3500 Design
In terms of base design characteristics, we definitely don’t expect to see any particular change for the next year. The 2021 Dodge Ram 3500 will carry on with the same design, which has been introduced a couple of years ago. The first thing you will notice is that there is a new styling, which utilizes Ram’s latest design language, which has ended with the famous crosshair grille after decades of use. Still, the new layout looks equally attractive. It is heavily based on the light-duty 1500 model, though it comes with a more massive and bolder appearance.
Along with excellent performances, this is one of the strongest points of this pickup truck. The 2021 Dodge Ram 3500 will continue in the same way, which means we may count on the nicest cabin among HD trucks. The overall cabin layout isn’t much different compared to the smaller, light-duty sibling. You may count on impressive materials’ quality, as well as on very attractive aesthetics. Furthermore, the dashboard looks very opulent, thanks to a full load of tech goodies.
Also, this truck is pretty spacious and comfortable. No matter the cab style you choose, you may count on a generous amount of legroom and overall interior space, so adults can enjoy a comfortable ride in all rows.
The trim level organization will definitely remain the same, so you may count on familiar versions in the offer. Of course, the lineup will start with the Tradesman, which is a pretty basic trim that includes features like steel wheels, a small 5-inch touchscreen, vinyl upholstery, and keyless ignition.
Big Horn is the next in the line and it is a bit of an upgrade. You may count on things like trailer brake controller, cloth upholstery, chrome wheels and bumpers, keyless entry etc.
A mid-range Laramie adds several goodies, starting from an 8.4-inch touchscreen, leather seats, unique grille design, power-folding mirrors etc.
The Longhorn is step up to luxury and you may count on some pretty amazing features, such as adjustable rear air suspension. This model also comes with goodies like unique wheels, two-tone paint, wood interior trim and more.
Finally, there is the Limited, which is the most luxurious trim level in the offer. This model comes a large 12-inch touchscreen, 20-wheels, unique grille design, blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic detection, power-folding running board and many more things.
2021 Dodge Ram 3500 Engines
You may count on two familiar engine options in the offer for 2021 Dodge Ram 3500. Of course, base models will come with a 6.4-liter V8 gasoline engine, which puts out 410 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque. It is a pretty capable engine but most truckers would probably choose a well-known 6.7-liter inline-six turbodiesel. This Cummins engine delivers around 370 horsepower and 850 pound-feet of torque in the base version. An upgraded version is also available, with full 400 horsepower and full 1.000 pound-feet of torque. With such power, you may count on a max towing capacity that goes up to 35.100 pounds.
2021 Dodge Ram 3500 Release Date and Price
We expect to see this truck on the market in the last quarter of the year, with the starting price around 35.500 dollars. When it comes to the 2021 Dodge Ram 3500 Diesel price, the starting price should go around 46.000 dollars.
