Proud winner of the 2021 Autocar Car of the Year – Utility award.

“While sales of utility vehicles again reached new highs last year, new releases in the segment were few. Navara was made over, and Chevrolet entered the fray with its Silverado pick-up, but it was the entry of the new generation Ram 1500 here that took the award. The new rig rolls in at $159,990, which we noted was quite a ticket for a pick-up but then it’s quite some truck. The new model is longer, slightly wider, and rides on a lengthened wheelbase, making room for an even more expansive cabin.

This Ram is part truck, part luxury cruiser as you’ll find a big 12-inch, portrait-orientated touchscreen on the dash and a cabin swathed in leather, the seats clad in soft, full grain hide and there are miles of double stitched seams. This is a fully capable work horse too with the ability to haul up to 4500kg while the inclusion of the Rambox tray, which incorporates storage cubbies in the wellside, adds to its work/lifestyle balance.

The Limited model even rides on air springs for more compliant progress and these are height adjustable so you can lower it for easier loading or raise it right up for off roading. Along with a switchable 4×4 system, the Ram features an on-demand type AWD mode. The powerplant is a mammoth V8, but the 5.7-litre Hemi also features mild hybrid attributes with idle/stop operation and improved cylinder deactivation. “
