The all-new 2021 Ram 1500 Laramie is a mid-range trim level that represents one of the most popular choices among the buyers. For a small jump in price, you will get more tech and convenience features. In our opinion, the price is affordable and Ram could also improve its offer for 2021. A new model has spied a couple of weeks ago. The prototype has been spotted with a Quad Cab configuration.
The spy photos are showing various improvements and some of them are interesting and surprising. That includes both interior and exterior updates. As for the performance, things should largely remain under the bonnet. The sales will start in the coming months, most likely by the end of 2020.
Ram 1500 Laramie Changes
According to the latest spy images, the new 2021 Ram 1500 Laramie will gain a couple of improvements. The mid-range trim level will look better than the base trim level and it will offer more standard features. For a start, that includes a 20-inch aluminum wheel. Moreover, the newest Night Edition is available on the Laramie trim level. Thanks to that, you can get more stylish and larger 22-inch rims. The spied prototype was wearing a Quad Cab body style.
It is a 4×4 prototype with heavy camouflage, so some parts are still not visible. From what we saw, this model will gain new towing mirrors and cameras. The same features can be found on the Ram 3500 HD model. Moreover, towing mirrors are the same units that Ram 1500 Rebel has to offer. Another novelty is the bed-view camera but we don’t know if this feature will be offered as standard.
The 2021 Ram 1500 Laramie is a well-equipped light-duty pickup truck. Unlike the base trim level, Laramie offers full-screen navigation and a digital cluster display. Moreover, a 7-inch touchscreen and 9-speaker premium sound system are available too. Laramie also adds a 12-way power front seats and a 12-inch Uconnect infotainment display.
Ram reportedly plans to introduce new upholstery and a new ventilating system. Moreover, the manufacturer will add the latest driver-assistance systems. That includes aids such as forward-collision warning and lane-keeping assist. However, further interior changes are yet to be announced.
Under the hood, the new 2021 Ram 1500 Laramie comes with a 3.6-liter V6. This engine is capable of producing 305 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque. As before, a 5.7-liter V8 is an optional powertrain that delivers 395 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque. The diesel engine is the second optional powertrain.
It is a 3.0-liter V6 EcoDiesel that cranks out 260 horses and 440 lb-ft of twisting power. All three engines are mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and the rear-wheel-drive system is standard once again. We are still waiting for Ram to release full hybrid specs.
2021 Ram 1500 Laramie Price and Release Date
The price of the 2021 Ram 1500 Laramie starts at around $43,000. If you want a more premium pickup, this is the right answer. The base trim level is available for $35,000, so adding a couple of grand more would be a smart choice. On the other hand, the range-topping trim level costs almost $55,000. Ram will launch its new Ram 1500 pickup by the end of 2020.
