The current generation of one of the most capable heavy-duty pickups on the market has been around for just a couple of years, so there is no doubt that the 2021 Ram 3500 Dually will come with no bigger changes. At this point, we are still waiting to hear something from the officials, which are pretty quiet at the moment. Still, we are pretty sure that there is nothing exciting to come, considering that a mid-cycle update is still a couple of years away.
This means you may count on a highly capable pickup truck, which doesn’t just do a great job in terms of working capabilities, but also makes the work highly convenient. It offers excellent comfort and comes with a hi-quality cabin, full of tech goodies. We expect to see 2021 Ram 3500 Dually sometime in the last quarter of the year.
2021 Ram 3500 Dually Design
In terms of base design characteristics, we don’t expect any particular change for the next year. The 2021 Ram 3500 Dually is about to carry on in the same way, with a familiar design in all aspects. In terms of mechanics, this model comes with pretty much the same characteristics as the standard single wheel version. Obviously, that’s the major visual difference too. Other than that, the truck looks largely the same, though we have to mention that the front face largely depends on the trim level you choose.
The trim level choice also has a big impact on the cabin look, though we have to say that all models look very good. Even the most basic variants feature pretty impressive quality, with loads of quality materials, while higher trims look pretty luxurious. The 3500 Dually will continue with three cab designs in the offer, Single, Crew and Mega Cab layouts.
The next-year model will carry on with the same trim levels in the offer. Still, each version could come with a couple of minor tweaks, though most of the things are about to remain the same.
Therefore, the offer will start with the work truck version called Tradesman, which comes with goodies like vinyl bench seats, 5-inch infotainment touchscreen, air conditioning, 17-inch steel wheels, keyless ignition etc.
The Big Horn is next in the line and it comes with upgrades like chrome bumpers, cloth seats, trailer brake controller, keyless entry, 18-inch chrome wheels. Laramie trim brings upgrades like a unique chrome grille, leather seating surfaces, 8.4-inch infotainment touchscreen, soft-opening tailgate with remote release, power-folding chrome tow mirrors, while the Longhorn adds self-leveling load suspension, unique wheels, special wood trims etc.
Finally, you can get the flagship 2021 Ram 3500 Dually Limited, which comes with exclusive features like a 12-inch infotainment touchscreen, blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic detection, power-folding running boards, a unique grille, 20-inch wheels etc.
2021 Ram 3500 Dually Engines
Under the hood, things will definitely remain the same. Base models will carry on with a familiar 6.4-liter V8 gasoline engine, which puts out around 410 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque. The well-known 6.7-liter Cummins turbodiesel comes in two versions. The base one is good for 370 horses and 850 lb-ft. On the other side, the upgraded version puts out 400 horsepower and 1.000 pound-feet of torque. With this engine, the 2021 Ram 3500 Dually towing capacity will go over 35.000 pounds, which is some of the highest ratings in the class.
The gasoline engine comes with 8-speed automatic transmission, while the turbodiesel uses a 6-speed gearbox.
2021 Ram 3500 Dually Release Date and Price
Since there are no bigger changes to come for the next year, we presume the release date will be scheduled for the last quarter of the year. When it comes to the 2021 Ram 3500 Dually price, base models should go around 38.000 dollars. A diesel version will cost you additional 9.000 dollars at least, or even more if you pick a high-output version.
