New Ram 2021 Ram 1500 vs 2020 Ram 1500 – San Antonio TX for Sale in San Antonio, TX
2021 Ram 1500 vs 2020 Ram 1500 | San Antonio TX
The Ram 1500 is a premier light duty pickup truck that has fans all around the United States. It’s especially popular in truck-happy Texas. However, the 2021 Ram 1500 is going to bring joy like no other truck before it. Why? Well, we all have the 1500 TRX to look forward to. This 702 horsepower beast of a truck is unlike any other off-road machine in the world today, including those that normally take the cake in that category. Ancira Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram assures you that although the 2020 Ram 1500 is good, the 2021 1500 is convincingly better, and it’s not just because the 2020 Ram 1500 has no TRX trim. There are many other ways that the 2021 model is serving San Antonio New Braunfels Boerne Texas with a stylish, powerhouse of a truck that improves on its predecessors.

The 2020 Ram 1500 was a beautiful truck, and it still is. It took a lot of work by Ram to upgrade the 2021 design, but they managed to get the job done. The new TRX trim is not available in the 2020 model, so that alone makes the 2021 model worth a look. However, they’ve also upgraded the multifunction tailgate this year to an 88-degree swing that is thicker in nature and more durable. Also improved this year is the Rambox cargo management system and power running boards that are more responsive to your commands. LED headlamps blaze bright on the 2021 model, all in a way that makes for a more unique and impressive exterior design. Huge wheel designs like the 22-inch painted black aluminum wheels of the Limited Night Edition and the 22-inch Premium Painted/Polished aluminum wheels on the Laramie’s Sport Appearance package give you more glitz and glamour for your 1500 in 2021.
The heart and comfort of any pickup truck is its cabin, and the 2021 cabin is more comfortable and hard-working than the 2020 model. For example, it grabs a huge Head-up display that gives you pertinent information right on your windshield so that you don’t have to take your eyes off the road to get that next step in your directions (or monitor your speed). It’s like having a computer in front of you at all times, dictating your most important specs. The 1500 became the first truck in America that wasn’t afraid to call itself a luxury vehicle. From its 12-inch touchscreen UConnect infotainment system, to its standard Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, all the way to its bouncing Harman Kardon premium audio system, this is a truck that knows when to comfort and knows when to entertain. A 10 square foot panoramic sunroof is available this year, too, making it one of the first pickup trucks to open up the outdoors to your family and crew. Throw in more Natura Plus leather this year, in gorgeous colors like Indigo and Frost Beige, and you’ve got a 2021 model that gives you a little more than the 2020 model. It’s just prettier.
Ram 1500 Mechanical specs
The TRX’s 6.2L supercharged engine nets you 702 horsepower, so that’s going to be the truck you go for if you want off-roading or premium power. However, the rest of the trim lineup is by no means more than a step or two behind. The truck boasts a 12,750 pound maximum towing capacity and five bold engine choices. Your 5.7L HEMI V8 gas engine offers up 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque and comes with eTorque mild hybrid technology for better gas mileage. This same engine is available without eTorque as well, and it still gets you 11,610 pounds of towing power. Clocking in at 305 horsepower is the 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine (also with eTorque). And what’s a 1500 without a strong diesel engine? It features a 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 engine that’s rated at 260 horsepower and 480 lb-ft of torque that confidently delivers 12,560 pounds of maximum towing capacity. We’d also say here at Ancira Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram that the 2021 model is by far more responsive than the 2020 1500.
