Dodge RAM 2021: First Look, Photos, Price

According to a specialized forum, the new Dodge RAM 2021 will start production in September or October this year, which means that its presence should be imminent and more than likely take place this summer. Although for now, it is difficult to determine when and where it will take place, due to the enormous delay accumulated by the marketing departments of all brands.

We knew that the Dodge RAM 2021 was going to be presented this year, however, the health crisis we are experiencing has led to huge delays for the release schedules of most manufacturers. Not to mention the cancellation or delay of all major events this first half of the year.

So if before there were several possibilities for the presentation of the new Dodge RAM 2021, now we find the opposite case, a total absence of events in which the US firm would have preferred to unveil this new explosive variant of the RAM 1500 range. In a recent report, the scheduled date for this presentation was June, during the Detroit Auto Show 2020, which, as we already know, will not be celebrated, since its facilities have had to be used to create a field hospital.

So it is expected that the debut of this new variant will continue to take place at the same time, between May and July. Since the production of the model, according to the same report, should start in late summer or early autumn, between September and October.

The recreation that we can see on these lines shows us a very clear example of what we should expect from this explosive new variant of the full-size RAM pick-up. Following in the footsteps of theDodge RAM 2021 Concept introduced a few years ago, we are going to find a new raised suspension scheme, with wider axles and huge Goodyear off-road tires under the oversized wheel arches. Metal underbody protections, new more aggressive front with modified bumpers and grille, and a more bulky hood with a huge upper air intake.

It should be noted that while the model will be strongly inspired by the RAM Rebel TRX concept, that prototype was presented in Texas in 2016 and therefore corresponds to the previous generation of the model. The definitive production variant of the Ram Rebel TRX will be the adaptation of those features and accessories to the design of the current generation of the pick-up, the fifth generation, or RAM DT.

Although in principle it was expected that two versions would be released, the RAM Rebel TRX and Dodge RAM 2021, it seems that the first has been canceled. This was to mount the new atmospheric 7.0-liter HEMI engine with more power than the FCA 6.4-liter HEMI V8, although slightly less than the 6.2-liter V8 Hellcat that we are going to find under the front hood of the Rebel TRX. This block will have the same configuration as the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, that is, with 717 hp and 875 Nm of maximum torque, associated with a ZF original torque converter automatic transmission.

Inside we will find a slightly modified dashboard with a specific dashboard and a new driving mode selector with specific programs for this version of the pick-up, as confirmed by previous leaks.
