2021 Dodge Ram 2500 Preview: Specs and Features

The current generation of the capable pickup truck has been around for a while and we are pretty sure that the next-year model won’t bring any particular change. Most likely, we are about to see the same layout, which stands out in several ways, starting from excellent performances, upscale interior and many other things. On the other side, some reports suggest the new model might hit the Australian market. That wouldn’t be a surprise, considering that some of the Ram’s models are already available in this part of the world. In any case, the 2021 Dodge Ram 2500 shouldn’t receive any particular change, even if it comes to this part of the world.

On the other side, the North American model will certainly carry on in the same way. This means you may count on a design that ensures excellent overall capabilities, especially in terms of towing capacities, where this truck is definitely among class leaders. We expect to see the new year model sometime in the last quarter of 2020.

2021 Dodge Ram 2500 Design

As we’ve just mentioned, the current model has been around for less than a few years and it seems very fresh in every aspect. That’s why we don’t expect to see any particular change in the next year. The current generation heavily relies on the standard light-duty model and features pretty much the same design language. Therefore, you may count on the styling that includes a new grille design, among other novelties. Of course, this model comes in a variety of configurations, with different cab layouts and bed sizes. When it comes to the possible 2021 Dodge Ram 2500 Australia model, we don’t expect any particular difference in terms of the base design, though there is always enough room for a couple of distinctive details.

Interior and Trim Levels

The 2021 Dodge Ram 2500 interior definitely won’t change and the reason is quite simple. The current generation features largely the same interior as the standard 1500 model, which stands out for exceptional quality. First-grade materials and loads of tech features is what you can expect from this truck, while higher trim levels look very luxurious.

The basic trim level organization is typical for Ram models. It includes the following trim levels: Tradesman, Big Horn/Lone Star, Laramie, Longhorn, Limited and Power Wagon. This organization won’t change for the next year, though each version should come with a couple of additions to the list of standard equipment. Still, don’t expect too much, as most of the things are about to remain the same. Therefore, models like Tradesman will be pretty much barebones, while mid-range trim levels like Limited will come with a pretty long list of standard equipment, which includes things like LED lighting, a 115-volt power outlet, power-folding auto-dimming mirrors, parking sensors, dual-zone automatic climate control, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, leather upholstery. Higher trim levels will gradually add more and more standard features.

When it comes to the Power Wagon, it will continue as an off-road version of the truck, which comes with a variety of exclusive upgrades. Some of the highlights are things like all-terrain tires, off-road shock absorbers, tow hooks, skid plates, a manual transfer case, electronically locking differentials with a 4.10 axle ratio, hill descent control, an integrated front winch. Of course, it also comes with several exclusive styling details, which accentuate the model’s off-road character.

2021 Dodge Ram 2500 Engines

Under the hood, things definitely won’t change and that means you may count on two familiar engine options. Of course, base models will feature a well-known 6.4-liter V8 gasoline engine, which for this occasion delivers around 410 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque. This engine comes in pair with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Also, there is a well-known 6.7-liter Cummins turbodiesel, which puts out around 370 horsepower and 850 pound-feet of torque. This engine comes paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission.

When it comes to max towing capacity, the base model with a gasoline engine can tow up to around 17.500 pounds, while max payload capacity goes over 4.000 pounds. Of course, the 2021 Dodge Ram 2500 Diesel will be a better choice if towing is your priority, as such models can tow up to 19.680 pounds. However, these models feature significantly lower payload capacity. Also, keep in mind that exact ratings depend on several more things, starting from the drivetrain, cab style, level of equipment and more.

2021 Dodge Ram 2500 Release Date and Price

This aspect shouldn’t bring surprises either. So, expect to see the next-year model sometime in the last quarter of the year. When it comes to the price, base models should go 34.000 dollars. Of course, key competitors are Ford F-250 and Chevy Silverado 2500HD.
