For as long as they’ve been in production, pickup models have been lauded for their hard-working demeanor and gritty, durable performance capabilities both on the job and the open pavement. This is evident throughout every pickup in production today, but especially when looking at the new RAM 1500. As the flagship truck breed in the Stellanis model family, the RAM 1500 is quite the stunner, both in terms of its power and its tech capacity.
The RAM 1500 is currently available with awesome specials to boot, right here on our Palmen of Racine dealership lot. We invite you to join our team below as we show you what makes the RAM 1500 so iconic in so many ways.
“Best-In-Class” is a designation that has become commonplace with the RAM 1500, as its 5.7L HEMI® V8 engine with eTorque can produce 395 horsepower, 410 pound-feet of torque, and help you tow a maximum of 12,750 pounds (or haul a payload of 2,300 pounds). Its powertrain is also tops in the pickup market when it comes to 4x4 fuel economy, as you can achieve up to 22 highway miles per gallon!
The first thing you’ll probably notice about the RAM 1500 upon stepping inside is its 12-inch center touchscreen which, you guessed it, is also largest in its class. That’s not all, however - you’ll also be treated to a 7-inch Digital Cluster Display, Active Noise Cancellation technology, and lightning-fast USB charging ports for all your devices. Music and calls played through said devices will also come through clearly thanks to a 900-watt Harman Kardon® Premium Audio System. Said system offers 19 available speakers which, again, is best in class. We’re sensing a theme here.
The 2021 RAM 1500 is capable of providing a luxurious and serene interior experience that approximately zero other pickups today can offer. Five passengers can sit tight on premium seating, with best-in-class (see what we mean?) rear legroom and a maximum storage capacity of 151.1 liters. Class-Exclusive in-floor storage is also available, as is a panoramic dual-pane sunroof. Don’t forget the 60/40 split swing-away multi-function tailgate, either!
In an effort to completely refute the unsafe stigma that many pickups unfortunately carry, the 2021 RAM 1500 offers over 100 active and passive safety features, all of which work together to give you a ride aided by much-needed peace of mind. It features the following innovations:
With all that we’ve listed above, it should come as no surprise that the RAM 1500 has been named Motor Trend’s Pickup of the Year for 2020. If you want to experience all its best features for yourself, feel free to give Palmen RAM Trucks in Racine a call today - we’re happy to help you schedule a test drive or work out a financing deal that best fits your budget!
