6.4L HEMI V8
The standard engine that you will find on most 2021 Ram 3500 models is the 6.4-litre HEMI V8. Paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission and 4WD, this refined unit generates 410 hp (best in class) and 429 lb-ft of torque. Thanks to Variable Valve Timing (VVT) technology and the Multi-Displacement System (MDS), it is capable of towing up to 8,259 kg (18,210 lbs) with a payload of up to 3,483 kg (7,680 lbs).
6.7L Cummins I-6
If you are looking for an alternative to gasoline, the first option that is presented with the 2021 Ram 3500 is the 6.7-litre Turbo Diesel Inline-6. Made by Cummins, it is partnered with a 6-speed automatic transmission and 4WD to produce 370 hp and a staggering 850 lb-ft of torque. This multi-range mechanism offers unmatched responsiveness and efficiency. It can even haul up to 10,282 kg (22,670 lbs) while simultaneously carrying 3,102 kg (6,840 lbs) in the back of the bed.
6.7L H.O. Cummins I-6
Finally, the top-notch unit for people who want to do some extreme-duty work is the 6.7-litre High-Output Turbo Diesel Inline-6. Mated with a 6-speed automatic transmission from AISIN, it provides durability and a performance of 420 hp and 1,075 lb-ft of torque (best in class). Meanwhile, the pulling limit has skyrocketed to 16,828 kg (37,100 lbs) with the maximum inside the box being capped at 2,980 kg (6,570 lbs).
Active Air Intake System
Since all of these 2021 Ram 3500 models can handle a lot of pressure, each one is also equipped with the Ram Active Air Intake System. This class-exclusive feature monitors the engine controller and immediately responds to rapidly changing temperatures. As the motor works, it gets hotter. This component's job is to adjust the flow of air into the engine bay to prevent overheating. If it is raining, it will pull oxygen from underneath the hood inlet to stop moisture from getting inside the compartment.
Fifth Wheel Prep Group
In order to reach the maximum towing capacity of 16,828 kg (37,100 lbs) with the High-Output Inline-6 motor, the truck requires the installation of the available Fifth Wheel/Gooseneck Prep Group. Built by Mopar, this element adds the mounting hardware to the centre of the bed along with the appropriate wiring connections. This ensures that electricity can flow to the braking and lighting systems of your attachment. It also allows for optimized control and stability.
