You know you're doing well when a vehicle name becomes so popular it turns into a brand unto itself and that's exactly what has happened with Ram.
Prior to 2010, Ram was the moniker for a range of trucks under the Dodge brand. Dodge certainly has a rich history. It brand began as a machine shop and parts supplier run by Horace Elgin Dodge and John Francis Dodge in 1900, and later it became a direct competitor to the likes of Ford when the company blossomed into crafting their own complete automobiles in Hamtramck, Michigan in 1914.
Traditionally, a range of vehicles would want to maintain a direct connection with such a grand legacyâ€”but Ram trucks have become so big, figuratively speaking (and literally!), and now command such great renown that they stand on their own.
Oh, and the 2021 lineup of Ram trucks? Well, Chilliwack residents, be prepared for dynamic off-road and highway experiences alike.
The 1500 is the popular, everyman truck of the Ram lineup, and let us assure you: No matter which engine you spring for, you're in for thrilling power and performance that will make every drive and every job a more enjoyable experience.
The first engine option on tap is the 3.6L Pentastar V6, paired with the eTorque mild hybrid system and a smooth-shifting eight-speed automatic transmission. This mighty motor produces 305 horses and 269 lb-ft of torque, coming standard on the Big Horn and Tradesman models.
If you're looking for a bit more â€œpep in your step," the 5.7L HEMI V8 delivers in a huge way. The transmission remains the same but there is a boost to 395 HP and 410 lb-ft of torque. You'll find this fitted as standard to the Sport, Rebel, Limited Longhorn, and Limited trims.
If tons of torque is totally what you're into, the 3.0L Ecodiesel V6 does things differently, producing 480 lb-ft (as well as 260 horses). It is an option on the Rebel, Laramie, Limited Longhorn, and Limited trims.
If power is truly your pleasure, get ready to be blown away by the final engine offering for the 2021 Ram 1500 (and exclusive to the TRX model): the 6.2L HEMI V8. It boasts jaw-dropping, best-in-class numbers of 702 horses and 650 lb-ft of torque. That means you'll fly from 0 to 60 MPH in only 4.5 seconds!
More imposing than even the 1500, the 2021 Ram 2500 caters to whatever you find yourself getting into in Chilliwack - both on and off the job site. With 4- and 7-pin trailer tow wiring connections and diesel towing of up to 20,000 lb (9,072 kg), there's nothing you won't be ready for. Plus, support for hauling up to 4,010 pounds is achieved when combining the 50,000 PSI steel frame with the truck's class-exclusive Multilink Coil Rear Suspension.
