There are similarities with 2021 Ram 1500 Diesel with other models from the class as always, but the major change that this model will offer is obviously the engine. Although the manufacturer has been opened for the new options in design, this time the attention was drawn by the new eco-diesel option that should be introduced with the version that comes this year.
According to the manufacturer and experts, the new eco-diesel engine should come firstly in Ram 1500 Classic, while until next year other models could have the same. Whatever it is, the new engine could replace some of the current engines that this model has.
- There are great changes in design that make the model bigger.
- The engine is practical and stronger.
- There is no information about the changes in the cabin.
- The equipment is not known yet.
2021 Ram 1500 Diesel should not be changed in design from the last year to much. The only change could be significantly wider front grille that allows more air to the engine. However, the rear end promises great space for the load, while the higher position of the truck allows off-road driving.
Since the regular cabs have not been sold well in the past decade, manufacturers have withdrawn those models from the market. On the other hand, the four-door model, as well as the double cab, should attract new buyers.
Although the photos have not shown much about the design of the cabin, we can say that they have prepared great equipment for 2021 Ram 1500 Diesel. There is obvious that the center of the dashboard will have a 12-inch touchscreen with important commands and buttons. It is for sure that they will upgrade climate control, too. Other features will be known later.
It is hard to talk about the engines that come in 2021 Ram 1500 Diesel and do not mention famous and surely highly attractive new eco-diesel engine that should be introduced this year in 1500 Ram Classic model. To remind ourselves, the last year model had strong 5.7-liter Hemi petrol engine with 395 horsepower and 410 pound-feet of torque. It was good to many models in the class, like Toyota Tundra.
However, this time the manufacturer has prepared something better. We know that full features truck cannot fulfill without an old and well-known diesel engine. It could be 3.0-liter turbodiesel engine, previously used in Jeep Gladiator, with 260 horsepower and 442 pound-feet of torque. The new engine promises good selling season.
If everything goes well, the same engine could be found in Ram 2500 and 3500. there are clues that the manufacturer has prepared a 48-volt electric motor that could be added to a current petrol engine.
2021 Ram 1500 Release Date and Price
There are few novelties in the versions that could come along with 2021 Ram 1500 Diesel. It is for sure that Classic version could come only as regular cab version, while the second option is four-door that comes in normal Ram 1500. however, nothing is confirmed yet.
The price should not go much up from the last year number, so we expect that for the $35,000 you can become an owner of this truck with standard equipment and eco-diesel engine. The final releasing date should be somewhere in the middle of the next year.
