2021 RAM 1500

As one of the most robust and capable vehicles on the road, the 2021 RAM 1500 is a competitive pickup truck in the industry because of its long history of reliability and power. Although this pickup truck boasts expressive styling and sleek accents, it continues to remain competitive among other models in its class because of its powerful engines and towing and hauling capabilities. If you’re in the market for a new truck to drive while getting around Laredo Texas, there are a few main features to review to discover how much accommodation is provided with the vehicle for your personal or business needs.

New Features

Some of the new additions and upgrades to the new RAM 1500 include a TRX model that has joined the lineup for drivers seeking more performance and features. The soft-touch materials in the cabin create a luxurious setting that makes it easy to forget you’re driving in a rugged pickup truck. It includes a user-friendly 5-inch infotainment system with six speakers and a wi-fi hot spot to stay connected to the internet while away from the office. Multiple USB ports, push-button start, and Bluetooth also offer convenience while performing different tasks for personal or business purposes. Those who are seeking extra bells and whistles can upgrade to other features that include satellite radio, HD radio, and a few more USB ports. An 8.4 or 12-inch touchscreen is also available for those who are seeking something larger on the dashboard. The 12-inch screen is currently the largest in its class and has sharp, stunning graphics with vivid details. Wireless device charging is one of the most in-demand features that many people enjoy using and doesn’t require hassling any cords when powering your devices while on the go.


With 12,750 pounds of max towing and 2,300 pounds of maximum payload, the vehicle is capable of tackling even the toughest jobs and still has the smoothest ride in its class. The soft-touch materials in the cabin contribute to the luxurious setting, along with excellent outward visibility in the front and back. Drivers can also take advantage of trailer reverse steering control for improved safety, as well as tailgate assist and a cargo management system. Not only do the LED headlamps add a sleek and modern touch to the outside of the truck, but they also offer increased visibility on the road ahead. Despite its large size and solid frame, the engine still generates 395 horsepower to ensure you can accelerate quickly and keep up with other cars on the highway. One of the most useful features is the Uconnect infotainment system, which is responsive and has an intuitive design. The screen layout can even be customized with different shortcuts created based on how you plan to use the vehicle.

Safety Features

The number of active safety features offered in the 2021 RAM 1500 enhances its value and offers peace of mind to drivers who are prone to making mistakes at times due to the hefty size of the truck. The high-strength steel frame is one of the main reasons the 2021 RAM continues to be one of the safest trucks on the road and has allowed it to earn excellent Insurance Institute for Highway Safety crash test ratings. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration also scored its safety higher than other models in its class. Although the vehicle is large, guided parking offers convenience to avoid minor fender benders. A 360-degrees surround view camera also improves visibility from all angles while eliminating blind spots. Drivers also receive alerts if they’re veering into another lane. Front and rear parking sensors also offer additional assistance with avoiding mishaps with audible alerts. Automatic high-beam headlights, lane keep assist, a head-up display, automatic emergency braking, and forward collision warning are some of the most popular safety features in the industry and work well for improving safety in different types of driving conditions in the 2021 RAM. Parallel and perpendicular park assist is another feature useful for fitting into tight spaces with the guidance provided.

Additional features include:

  • Smart Breaking Technology
  • Advanced Airbag Protection
  • Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Path and Trailer Detection
