One of the most iconic pickup trucks of all time, the RAM 1500 – formerly known as the Dodge Ram, before Chrysler decided to split the Ram nameplate off as its own brand – is one of our most popular vehicles here at Cecil Motors. It’s been around since all the way back in 1981 and entered its fifth generation just a couple of years ago for the 2019 model year. Now, the 2021 RAM 1500 has received a few new upgrades and enhancements, and we’re stoked to be able to provide it to shoppers right here in the Highland Lakes TX area.
The RAM 1500 is available in a host of different models and trim levels, giving you a wide range of options to choose from. Grades include Limited, Limited Longhorn Edition, Rebel, Laramie, Bighorn, Tradesman, TRX and more. No matter which RAM 1500 you decide to go with, you can rest assured you’ll be getting a stylish and capable truck packed full of premium features and technologies that should make every trip or job more enjoyable and convenient.
Across the many different variants of the RAM 1500 are five different powertrain options. They include a 5.7L HEMI V8 with eTorque, the regular 5.7L HEMI V8, a 3.6L Pentastar V6 with eTorque, a 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 and a supercharged 6.2L HEMI V8. The 5.7L HEMI V8 options each deliver 395 horsepower alongside 410 pound-feet of torque, though the eTorque enables an increase in towing capacity from 11,610 pounds to 12,750 lbs.
The 3.6L Pentastar V6 generates 305 hp with 269 lb-ft. of torque and can tow up to 7,730 lbs. The 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 drops horsepower to 260 but increases torque to 480 lb-ft. and can tow up to 12,560 lbs. because of it. Of course, the supercharged HEMI is the most capable of all, generating 702 hp and 650 lb-ft. of torque. Rather than focusing on capabilities, its biggest highlight is a top speed of a lightning-fast 118 miles per hour.
