Dubuque Area 2021 RAM 1500
The Ram 1500 is one of the top-selling pickup trucks in America, and an important component of that success is that the 1500 does everything well rather than just chase claims of best in class in certain areas. Highlights include broad standard equipment, ample technologies, a roomy cabin with upscale materials, unparalleled ride comfort and serious towing and payload capabilities. Dubuque area drivers considering a Ram truck now have the option of the 2021 Ram 1500. Updates for the 2021 model year include expanded driver assistance technologies, enhanced towing technologies, a new fully digital rearview mirror, a new head-up display and an all-new Hellcat-powered 1500 called the TRX.

Another important consideration when choosing between the quad and crew cab is access to the second-row seats. Both body styles have four doors, but the quad has smaller rear doors that open toward the tailgate and require their respective front doors to be open. The crew cab, on the other hand, has four full-size doors that function independently of each other. A second consideration is bed length, and Ram offers two box sizes: a standard box that measures 6 feet 4 inches and a short box that measures 5 feet 7 inches. The quad cab only comes with the standard box. The crew cab gives you the choice of either box with the exception of the TRX, which comes with the short box only.
The 2021 Ram 1500 available in the Dubuque area can be had with either a quad cab or a crew cab. Both give you the option of either five- or passenger-seating, but available seating configurations depend on the trim level. Both cabs provide nearly 41 inches of front headroom and nearly 41 of front legroom. The difference is in the rear seat. The crew affords more than 45 inches of rear legroom whereas the quad affords more than 35 inches. While 35 inches is certainly enough to accommodate adults, the crew cab will prove to be more comfortable for longer trips and worksite-to-worksite travelling.
