The all-new 2021 Ram 3500 is almost ready for new mid-cycle refreshments. Ram plans to upgrade its complete heavy-duty lineup. As in the past, the manufacturer will continue to deliver updates that are similar to the updates on the Ram 1500 model. It is no brainer, for real. After all, Ford and Chevy are doing precisely the same thing.
For that reason, the race for the best heavy-duty pickup truck continues. All three manufacturers are offering impressive models with high power and upscale design. From the inside, new Ram 3500 will get regular updates in the technology department. A hybrid powertrain is still a rumor and there is no official confirmation yet.
The forthcoming 2021 Ram 3500 is about to get additional visual upgrades. Once again, the design of the new Ram 150 will have a significant impact. On the other hand, the manufacturer won’t deliver such a drastic exterior change. However, fresh Ram 3500 will now look even more aggressive. On top of that, styling is more modern and more upscale.
New spy shots are confirming new exterior features that we speculated about. Headlights are all-new and heavy camouflage on the front fascia suggests further changes. The rear part gets reshaped taillights. That is what we know so far. Hopefully, we will see a couple of more upgrades on the upper trim levels.
Even from the inside, we could expect a couple of minor upgrades. According to the newest reports, new 2021 Ram 3500 will gain only technology updates. On top of that, this truck could get more standard features in its base trim level. There won’t be new optional features, at least not for now. Still, rumors are suggesting a new interface for standard and optional displays.
The infotainment system will surely get all of the essential updates. Safety is already proper and Ram already offers vast driver-assistance aid. As for the design, the interior will largely remain. Mega Cab variant is once again in the offer which is a good thing.
Gasoline, Diesel, Towing Capacity,
The approaching 2021 Ram 3500 will continue to deliver a 6.4-liter V8 as the standard engine. This output produces up to 385 horses and 400 lb-ft of torque. A 6.7-liter V8 diesel is optional. Cummins engine cranks out astonishing 930 lb-ft of torque and 370 hp.
Ram 3500 tows 14,000 pounds with a gasoline option. However, diesel powertrain pulls over 30,000. As for the transmission, a 6-speed automatic gearbox is standard. A hybrid variant is still a speculation. Hybrid is very likely for Ram HD, but that will not happen before 2022.
2021 Ram 3500 Price and Release Date
New 2021 Ram 3500 should cost the same as its predecessor. The updates are minor, so the new heavy-duty pickup truck will start at $32,000. However, Ram 3500 is available in various trim levels and cab configurations. The manufacturer plans to release its heavy-duty lineup at the beginning of 2021.
