Since its inception, the Ram 2500 has been praised for its remarkable powers and superior build quality.
Road safety has been a major issue in the last decade, as traffic has increased to unprecedented levels. Automobiles must have adequate safety systems to address all safety concerns, given the increasing number of people, distractions, and hazardous road conditions every year. Trucks like the 2021 Ram 2500 have been meticulously engineered with the well-being of the driver and passengers in mind.
So, how does the 2021 Ram 2500 stack up? Continue reading to learn more about this heavy-duty truck's engine and towing capabilities.
5 Impressive Features of the 2021 RAM 2500
1. Massive Towing Capabilities
The RAM 2500 has a maximum towing capacity of 19,680 lbs. This is around a 1,000-pound increase in towing capacity over equivalent pickup trucks. The 2021 RAM 2500 truck can safely tow this much weight. You can expect a massive 1,000 lb-ft of torque and 400 horsepower from this behemoth of a motor. There isn't much this respectable towing capacity can't handle.
A fishing boat with a motor and trailer can only hold 3,704 pounds as a comparison. Cargo and three heavy motorcycles (such as HD Ultra Classic models) will not exceed 4,675 pounds.
2. Durable Bed
It's possible to get a lot of use out of this truck even if you don't need it to tow over 20,000 pounds. You can tow 4,010 pounds with the V8 HEMI engine. This has the best cargo capacity in its class. You can rest easy on uneven roads thanks to the innovative Auto-Level Rear Air Suspension found only in the RAM 2500.
3. Superior Handling
The RAM 2500 has higher traction and is easier to maneuver than comparable vehicles. This lets you effortlessly navigate potholes and other obstacles while driving this truck in sloppy situations. The responsiveness of this vehicle's handling will put you at ease behind the wheel.
4. Off-Road Ready
Off-road enthusiasts will appreciate this truck's natural toughness. Six trim levels have AWD, so you won't get stranded in the mud when you take your reliable vehicle on an off-roading excursion. The vehicle's high ground clearance allows it to be driven across flooded metropolitan streets as well as marshes. Because this car is so tough, it doesn't have any issues driving across rough terrain. Off-road enthusiasts and people who work in rural areas would love it.
5. Outstanding Safety Features
When it comes to driver assistance functions, you'll find them in the RAM 2500 as well. You may check your rearview mirrors for obstacles behind you and be notified of a possible collision up ahead thanks to the forward-collision warning, one of the most fantastic safety technologies ever. In addition to anti-lock brakes and forward-collision emergency braking. Other standard safety features include:
- Brake assist
- Control of the vehicle's traction
- A system for monitoring tire pressure
- Electronic Stabilization System
- Rear-view camera with high resolution
With a bed that can hold over 4,000 pounds without compromising the RAM 2500's unique suspension, it has more towing capacity than you'll ever need. Driving your children to school has never been safer with this car, thanks to its outstanding array of included safety features.
Which 2021 Ram 2500 accessories are essential?
The Ram pickup truck factory offers a wide variety of accessories. On the other hand, which ones are worth the money and which ones are a necessity? To begin, the truck's bed now has a light and a camera thanks to the center stop lamp with a cargo-view camera. Those who need to transport cargo at night may find this item a useful addition.
Wheel-to-wheel side stairs can be added to the Limited variant at no additional cost. Passengers who aren't used to the height of a huge pickup truck may find it challenging to climb aboard—because of this, using side stairs all around the vehicle is a huge advantage. Additionally, you’ll appreciate Mopar’s deployable step, which will make your life a lot easier.
Ram 2500 Accessories 2021
Even though the Ram 2500 is well-equipped to deliver excellent performance, it is simple to enhance its capabilities with the available options. Is there anything more you can do to make your drive more resilient or streamlined?
6.7L Cummins® Turbo Diesel Engine: A clever diesel exhaust brake with two modes and an electronically regulated throttle are included in this 220-amp alternator powertrain. Power and torque outputs are impressive, with the engine capable of producing as much as 370 hp and 850 lb-ft. It comes with a Cummins Turbo Diesel Badge to show you mean business.
6-speed Automatic Transmission: If you don't want to worry about shifting gears, go with a 6-speed automatic transmission. Comfort and aesthetics are enhanced with the leather-wrapped shift knob and Tip Start functionality provided by this add-on.
Ram 2500 Exterior Accessories
The Ram 2500's exterior characteristics do the most to convey your sense of personal style when driving. You may change the look and performance of your vehicle with these optional accessories.
Wheels: For the Ram 2500, several wheel options are not included in any model. These include 18-inch polished aluminum wheels, 20-inch walnut brown pockets, and 20-inch painted wheels with chrome inlays.
Bulb Out Detection Defeat: If your truck has LED external lights, this is a must-have. As a result, when driving a vehicle equipped with the Delete Pickup Box option, you will not be alerted if the rear bulb goes out.
Chrome Cab Length Side Steps: With their chrome accents, these extra-long stairwells make it easier to access and exit the building.
Running Boards: The running boards on the bottom of the doors of a RAM truck are used for two primary reasons:
- Due to the higher ground clearance, they make climbing into the truck much more accessible.
- While driving, they can help keep the side panels and doors of the car free of gravel and other road debris.
Tonneau Cover: Given the amount of snow and rain we receive in the Midwest, we're not sure how any truck drivers manage without a tonneau cover.
This cover protects your truck's bed and the stuff inside of it, making it an entire vehicle. It's an instrumental piece of jewelry that also happens to look fantastic.
In addition to protecting oneself from the elements, it has a more practical purpose. Keep your valuables safe by covering them up when you’re out and about. If you routinely transport goods for work or pleasure, a tonneau cover is an excellent investment (like tools or camping gear.)
Roll-up, retractable, folding and hard tonneau covers are among possibilities for tonneau covers.
Ram 2500 Interior Accessories
Having the amenities you want in your cabin is critical because you'll be spending a lot of time there. You'll be ready for everything the road throws at you with these Ram 2500 interior accessories.
Premium Bench Seat: The Ram 2500's interior will feel even more luxurious with the addition of this luxurious bench seat. It has soft cloth upholstery, a 40/20/40 split-folding capability, and 2-way headrests, among other things.
Rubber Floor Mats: Rubber floor mats for the front and back of your vehicle make cleaning up after the workday a breeze. It's also a bonus that they fit well in the car.
Power Sunroof: There's no better way to enjoy the outdoors than adding the optional power sunroof. Style, ventilation, and natural light are all enhanced by this innovation.
Bedliner: You may have acquired a RAM vehicle because of its large, functional truck bed. Installing a bed liner will help you make the most of the space in your truck's bed.
In addition to protecting your truck bed's interior from damage, bed liners can also help keep your gear in place while you're on the road.
Drivers of a 2021 Ram 2500 pickup can choose from a variety of bed linens:
- Drop-in bed liners
- Spray-on bed liners
- Bed mats
Because they take up less space, our parts department prefers to stock bed mats rather than drop-in bed liners.
Rolls into the bottom of the bed are a strong rubber pad—this aids in preventing the contents of the truck's bed from sliding about.
Additionally, RAM buyers can choose to have a spray-on liner put off site if they so desire throughout the sales process.
However, you deserve the greatest accessories for your 2021 Ram 2500, which is why we selected DECKED to meet your requirements.
DECKED has many great features, but one of them is that it can be customized to fit your needs. DECKED can be used in conjunction with a wide range of fascinating and useful products to optimize the effectiveness of your vehicle's bed or CARGO BAY in addition to the accessories we provide.
Core Trax Tie-downs: It's possible to attach loops at any point along its length in 1" increments, and the track can handle as many attachment points as there are 1" increments, which goes beyond simply providing tie-down hooks for the top of the deck. For a 6'6" system, use 58-inch tracks; for a 5'6" system, use 48-inch tracks.
T Track Tie Downs: The T Tracks can be used to attach Thule or Yakima racks to the DECKED system. It is similar to the Core Trax in that it is anchored to the steel tubes that run beneath the upper deck of the system. For a 6'6" system, use 58-inch tracks; for a 5'6" system, use 48-inch tracks.
Dividers: Drawers with polypropylene dividers that slide into molded slots can be bisected, trisected, or quadrisected. Small cutouts allow for tie-downs, and they come in bundles of 4. Adding a few notches transforms them into a pistol holder.
Locks: Even though a DECKED system's locking tailgate will usually deter a would-be burglar, these cam locks provide an additional measure of security and peace of mind.
Drain Plugs: Your tailgating buddies will be impressed when you fill a drawer with ice and O'Douls and then drain it. On a lengthy system, the cab-side end of the drawer is nearly impossible to access because the truck bed is normally tilted forwards. It's best to park on an incline, like your neighbor's driveway, if you want to use the tailgate end of the drawer.
D-BOX: D-boxes are gasket-sealed toolboxes built to last and designed to make using the DECKED system a breeze. To top it all off, they double as champagne caddies on the water (link). Two can fit in a 5'5" drawer, and three can fit in a 6'6" drawer.
CrossBox: Using an interlocking nested design, the DECKED CrossBox (tool box) reduces the overall size of the D-Box by half while maintaining the same level of durability and waterproofness. It's designed to suit all DECKED drawers: full-size and mid-size and narrow mid-size drawers.
We, or someone else, probably have your DECKED needs covered. Want to do something utterly out-of-the-box with your setup? Give us a call, and we'll do our best to help you figure it out.
Kolpin Gun Racks
Double Rhino Grips can be attached to the DECKED Drawer to keep your firearm or other gear safe and easy to transport (s).
Static grips and rubber straps, both strong and flexible, are used to grasp various tools and equipment firmly. Guns, bows, fishing rods, shovels, and other farm tools can all be transported in this sturdy case. Attaches to virtually any flat surface, including ATV racks, hard boxes, garage walls, truck beds, and many other unconventional spots. From the Koplin website or Amazon, you may buy them
To use the DECKED drawers, you will need a 1 1/4" long with a diameter of 1/4" threaded screw, a 1/4" 20 nut, and a lock washer. Here's where you can get some screws: Low Profile Screws
Weatherguard Ladder racks and the Dee Zee Tool Box
The DECKED system works nicely with a variety of other truck and vehicle modifications as well. Shallower Crossover Tool Boxes (the system is 12" high, so depending on the depth of the bed, often leaves enough area for something) can be used in conjunction with the system, which does not interfere with any side-rail mounted ladder racks or most tonneau covers. In addition to BedSlide and CargoGlide SKUs, any number of other shelving goods can be attached to the steel tubes under the system's deck using the same mounting patterns.
It's possible to mount almost anything on top of a DECKED system; there are two ways to anchor to it: one is by screw, through the top, deck-facing side of the tubes beneath the deck - how our T-tracks and Core Trax are mounted - and the other is with a nut and bolt clear through both sides of the tube. This has "negative implications" for the warranty depending on the type of installation. Anything like a BedSlide or CargoGlide, which has a substantial or cantilevered weight, should choose the second option.
The possibilities for personalizing a DECKED system are virtually limitless. Tool boxes and organizers, such as quick fist rubber clamps and tool boxes, can be used to secure longer or heavier items and can be attached to the drawer sides (we've heard this one works well). Using the DECKED system as a blank canvas, you may install whatever you can think of, from a rifle rack to a super-useful toilet paper holder. Your own imagination only limits the possibilities.
Kaizen Foam Inserts
This is a match made in heaven.
DECKED D-BOXES are waterproof toolboxes with an ultra-durable gasket seal that make it easier to organize and use the DECKED system. Two will fit in a drawer that is just 5'5" deep, while three will fit in a drawer that is 6'6" deep.
Customizing our weatherproof D-Box toolbox is easy with KAIZEN FOAM INSERTS. Hand tools, cordless tool sets, fishing tackle, emergency supplies, your camping kitchen or bug out kit, or whatever else you can think of can be stored in D-Boxes.
