What is new for the 2021 model year?
Working closely with Cummins, the Ram Heavy Duty received a number of diesel engine improvements in the 2021 model year. They include flow rate increases in the fuel delivery system and higher limits for boost from a variable geometry turbocharger. This makes it possible for the engine 6.7-liter inline-6 engine to pump out an additional 75 pound-feet of torque. This makes the Cummins engine more powerful than the competition with a total of 1,075 pound-feet of torque. Also new for the 2021 model year is a digital rearview mirror that shows video in real time from a camera that is rear facing. This camera can be switched off and reverted back into a traditional rearview mirror depending on what the driver prefers in the moment.
How has towing been enhanced?
The rear part of the Heavy-Duty’s frame now includes an upgraded rear-axle structural crossmember and full boxed rails that have built in provisions for a gooseneck or fifth wheel hitch to accommodate the immense towing capacity. The hardware for the gooseneck and fifth wheel hitch are fully integrated into the production box floor. The hardware includes gooseneck center castings, gooseneck bolt plates, and fifth wheel pucks. Also integrated in the rear of the bed are an additional 7-pin connector and a 4/7-pin trailer connector.
