What Is the 2021 Ram Heavy Duty?
The Ram HD is a full-size pickup truck aimed at people with serious towing and hauling needs, as opposed to those who make the occasional weekend run to the home improvement store. It seats up to six and competes with the Ford Super Duty and Chevrolet Silverado HD. Available in 2500 and 3500 form, a 410-horsepower, 6.4-liter V-8 engine is standard, while a Cummins turbo-diesel 6.7-liter inline-six-cylinder is available. The diesel engine makes as much as 1,000 pounds-feet of torque in the 3500.

Should I Buy the 2021 Ram Heavy Duty?
The Ram HD should definitely be on your test-drive list if you need a full-size pickup truck for serious work. What sets it apart from the competition is its driving refinement — especially when equipped with the optional rear air suspension — as well as the quality and design of the interiors in the Laramie Longhorn and Limited. These trim levels have raised the bar for all full-size trucks.
