Exterior Design

Aerodynamic Design

While people have grown attached to the Dodge Ram trucks of yesteryear (and our modern version can still be found with the Ram 1500 Classic), this new era of the Ram 1500 presents an incredibly modern yet still rugged and refined pickup exterior that houses all of the performance you desire. That all helps for hard work, but it’s incredibly aerodynamic as well, newly designed to reduce drag and improve efficiency, for a more seamless drive and less trips to the pumps. As well, its Active-Level Four Corner Air Suspension provides a smooth ride in any environment, and with trailering.

Strong Steel Frame

This next-gen Ram is lighter, safer and stronger, made from high-strength steel that greatly improves its durability across the frame. You’ll need all of that build reliability to tow as you desire and push the Ram to its max horsepower potential. The front suspension maintains this same strong yet lightweight design, allowing you to take on heavy loads and move them with less stress.

Multifunction Tailgate

Perfect for hopping in and out of, and loading on the jobsite, this first-ever 60/40 split tailgate allows for the ultimate in versatility when accessing the bed. Opening traditionally, or even like a barn door if needed.

Ram 1500 Sport, a Canadian Exclusive

There’s few pickups quite like the Ram 1500 Sport, and that’s why we’re so honoured that it’s a Canadian exclusive trim. Representing Canada, through and through, it’s a hard-working truck with matching door handles, grille surround, mirrors and front fascia, allowing the bold grille to really stand out. Sat on 20-inch black aluminum wheels, and bright LED headlights, it makes its mark by displaying an incredibly sharp contrast that can’t be missed on the road.

Interior Features

Leather & Wood Quality Elements

Real leather and wood accents are available, a treat to the eyes, while a treat for the rear passengers exists in the reclining rear seats that provide best-in-class legroom. The cabin is incredibly spacious to give both driver and passengers their own comfortable range of movement within all of that luxury. It really should come as no surprise why Ram consistently sets the bar for luxurious qualities in a light-duty pickup.

Dual-Pane Power Sunroof

As gorgeous as the Ram 1500 is on the inside, sometimes you want to experience the world around you, and the dual-pane sunroof is a perfect access point to the wonders your latest adventure takes you across Alberta. Available on the Crew Cab, just open and close with the push of a button, or utilize the forward pane for air ventilation.

Reconfigurable Centre Console

Sure, pickups are all about their cargo space in the bed, and all you can tow behind it, but don’t forget about the sumptuous interior amenities that allow you to safely store your important goods inside. The reconfigurable centre console stows whatever you desire, large enough to comfortably house a 15-inch laptop. For all of your connectivity needs, you can get up to 5 smartphones charging through the available Type-C USB ports.

Towing Capacity for Your Ram

If you’re driving a Ram we know you’re going to want to tow, and the Ram 1500 knows it with its incredible towing capability. This tough truck has a standard trailering capacity of 12,750 lbs (5,783 kg), complete with a max payload capacity of 2,300 lbs (1,043 kg) for exceptional capability out of this tough worker.

eTorque System

Don’t think all that power will drain your Ram, not with the eTorque mild hybrid system that only uses power when it needs it, working alongside its Start/Stop functionality. With its 48-volt battery, this system helps to increase low speed acceleration, the perfect addition for towing trailers.

Fuel Economy

Incredible fuel efficiency is just another one of the many advantages in the entire Ram truck package, led ahead by the 3.6L Pentastar V6 with features like its variable valve timing (with dual-independent cam phishing), plus an updated thermal management system. Along with its aerodynamic build, the Ram 1500 retains terrific fuel economy for a pickup.

TRX: MotorTrend Truck of the Year

It’s the trim level that brought Ram home the MotorTrend Truck of the Year award for the third year in a row, the 2021 Ram 1500 TRX! This revolutionary new pickup maintains all you love about Ram trucks and vaults it into the future as the most powerful half-ton pickup on the market. How does a Supercharged 6.2L HEMI V8, creating a blistering 702 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque, sounds? What about going from 0-60 mph in only 4.5 seconds flat? That’s the power of the new benchmark of trucks that Ram has just set with the all-new TRX.

Uconnect Multimedia

Stay connected to your vehicle, friends, family and the world outside thanks to the Uconnect multimedia system, with available 8.4-inch and 12-inch touchscreen options. Integrate your smartphone through Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to access your favourite apps and stay linked to those who matter most.

Harman Kardon Sound System

Music in your Ram is shepherded through the Harman Kardon 900-watt surround system, featuring 19 speakers and a 10-inch subwoofer that’ll satisfy even the pickiest audiophile. To focus on your music, the 2021 Ram 1500 stays incredibly quiet thanks to its noise dampening technology.

Automatic Power Side Steps

For those who need a little extra help getting up into the pickup, or for those who just want a more convenient entry and exit, the automatic power side steps deploy as soon as you unlock the truck, open the door or put it in park. When not needed, they seamlessly retract into the Ram’s body for a slim profile.

2021 New Technology Group

New for 2021 is the 2021 Technology Group, combining three must-have features available to you. It combines functionality for the most old-school truck lover while simultaneously satisfies any new-age tech lover.

  • Auto-dim digital rearview mirror
  • Advanced heads-up display
  • LED centre high mount stop light


Drive knowing you’re in the capable hands of over 100 standard and available safety features in your Ram pickup, all working together toward one goal in keeping you, your passengers, and the pedestrians around you safe.

Blind-Spot Detection System

Helping you get a look at everything around you is the Blind-Spot Monitoring system, alerting you of vehicles in your blind spot. An audible and visual alert lets you know who may be impeding your view and positioning, so you can make a lane change only when it’s safe.

360° Surround View System

The 360-degree Surround View camera, which gives you a full-scale look around your tuck, is perfect for hooking up a trailer, reversing, and settling into a tight parking space. It’s available with Trailer Tow Mirrors on the Sport, Rebel Laramie, Limited Longhorn and Limited trims.

Forward Collision Warning

Out on the open road, the Forward Collision Warning system alerts you, and acts when needed, in the face of accidents. Any potential collision it detects that may be about to occur, it’ll let you know of it through audible and visual alerts, so you can respond in kind.

Adaptive Cruise Control

Adaptive Cruise Control lets you set a distance from the vehicle in front, allowing you to conveniently enjoy your drive at a consistent pace from behind. You’ll be driving at a pre-select distance that adjusts with the flow of the vehicle, and while the system can slow your vehicle, it will not make a panic stop at top speeds.

2020 Ram 1500 Model Changes

What a way for the 2021 Ram 1500 to debut as an upgrade over its 2020 edition than with a brand-new trim that’s already won MotorTrend’s Truck of the Year honour. Yes, the TRX trim is all-new on this 2021 Ram, complete with its supercharged V8 engine and 702 horsepower. That’s not the only thing new, though, as heads-up display has been added, along with more advanced trailer tech like the Trailer Reverse Steering Control. In style, performance, safety and tech, the Ram 1500 is still only getting better year-after-year.
