What can you tell me about the features?
Seven trim levels are available for the 2021 RAM 1500, and each comes with an amazing amount of features. Starting things is the Tradesman, which comes with 18-inch steel wheels, air conditioning, trailer sway damping, and a 5-inch touchscreen with a six-speaker stereo. Moving up to the terrific Big Horn trim brings either an 8.4-inch or 12-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. If you are looking for superior off-road prowess, look no further than the Rebel trim, which comes with hill descent control, four underbody skid plates, an electronic locking rear axle, upgraded shocks, and all-terrain tires. If luxury is more your thing, the Laramie and the Longhorn have you covered with features such as power mirrors, leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, side steps, reclining heated rear seats with under storage, and a spray-in bedliner with in-bed lighting. The Limited builds on this with a standard 12-inch touchscreen and 5.7-liter V8, four-corner air suspension, wireless charging pad, and premium leather bucket seats. Last up is the TRX, which is new this year and, on top of the amazing engine, adds performance-enhancing features such as a head-up display, reverse steering control and RamBox cargo storage.
Does the RAM have terrific safety features?
You bet it does! After all, your safety is essential to RAM, so it only stands to reason that there are several available safety systems to keep you secure on an off the road. Available is an Adaptive Cruise Control System, which allows the driver to keep a preset distance between the RAM and the vehicles ahead. Also available is a Surround-View Camera System that provides you with a top-down view of the RAM and its surroundings so you can backup and park easier. The last safety system we will talk about is the Lane Keeping Assist system, which will help keep the RAM between the painted lines if you happen to drift.
