Smart Towing Technology

Peace of mind is essential, especially while towing. That's why we continue to innovate with advanced and helpful available towing features like the new Trailer Tire Pressure Monitoring, Trailer Light Check, and the Trailer-Tow Power-Fold Mirrors with an available 360° Surround View Camera.

Ultimate Visibility Towing

The available Power-Fold Tow Mirrors, now offered with the available 360° Surround View Camera, use five cameras to provide a complete picture of the truck's surroundings, especially helpful when aligning your truck with a trailer. The available Trailer Camera Wiring allows for up to two auxiliary cameras to be positioned on or within your trailer with a direct feed to the Uconnect® touchscreen.


LED Headlamps

A sculpted hood, sleek headlamps, and an elaborate grille exemplify impressive design, including an active grille shutter and full LED Headlamps.

Tailgate Assist

The available nitrogen- and oil-charged dampened tailgate ensures an even, consistent assist in even the coldest or warmest climates. The available power-release tailgate with key fob control makes opening the tailgate easier than ever.


Uconnect 12-Inch Touchscreen

Featuring an advanced 12-inch touchscreen, the available Uconnect® 12.0 with Navigation boasts a customizable home screen with split-screen capability, pinch-and-zoom technology, and physical controls for key features. With this at your fingertips, you can easily access what matters.

Connect Your Smartphone

The advanced Uconnect® system allows both iPhone® and Android™ users to stay in touch on the go. Plus, with Apple CarPlay® support-pictured here-you can listen to music, send and receive calls, get Navigation guidance, and access select iPhone apps, all through the 12-inch touchscreen. Android Auto integration provides access to apps, the ability to make calls, pull up playlists, and more.


Stopping Power

The 2021 Ram 1500 is equipped with 14.9-inch standard brakes, the Largest in its Class, that were designed to help you-and whatever you're hauling-come to a stop safely and securely.

Advanced Airbag Protection

Help protect passengers with the six standard truck airbags located throughout the 2021 Ram 1500. Front airbags are specifically designed to mitigate potential passenger injuries with adaptive venting technology, helping protect passengers by reacting to both the occupant size and severity of the crash.


Easy Loading and Unloading

For ease of access, swing open the 60/40 split swing-away doors of the available multifunction tailgate to load items directly onto the bed without reaching or sliding over a traditional tailgate. New for 2021, the available center bed step helps makes bed access easy to manage.

Access The Bed While Trailering

Towing a trailer shouldn't restrict access to the bed. That's why the 60/40 split swing-away doors are designed to be unobstructed by most trailers, to ensure easy access to cargo no matter the task at hand.
