Dodge Ram 2021

This car will start production between September and October this year, so its presence is very close, even this summer. Now it is difficult to know when and where it will be, taking into account the great delay that each of the marketing departments of the different automobile brands has.

This is due to the health crisis we are going through, along with the cancellation of all kinds of events related to this since the beginning of the year.

So, if before we had a large number of possibilities to make the presentation, in these months we found the opposite, the absence of these events were to present the new models of the brand. Initially, the expected date of presentation was in June 2020, coinciding with the Detroit Auto Show, which due to the urgent facilities of a field hospital, could not be held.

Of course, the debut is expected to be around the same time, that is, between May and June. Production should start in late summer, that is, between September and October.

Considering the previous model, RAM Rebel TRX Concept some differences must be highlighted. We are talking about the raised suspension system, fairly wide axles and pneumatics large enough to accommodate oversized wheels. On the bottom, they have protections with a metallic material, a new more aggressive front with a different bumper and grille. A fairly bulky hood with the entrance to the is at the top.

But the most important variant that we have to point out is the adaptation of both the features and the design of the most current generation of the car.

Initially, two versions were going to be released, but the first one was eventually canceled. This is because the motor is less powerful than the second case. In this second case, the configuration will resemble the Jeep Grand Cherokee, or what is the same, 717 horsepower with 875 Nm of torque at most, which is associated with a ZF original torque automatic transmission.

Inside the car, we are going to see a dashboard somewhat changed from the previous model, it has a table with specific instruments and a selector for driving modes also with all kinds of specific programs, as has become clear in leaks that have been coming out of it.

Chevrolet Trucks 2021

It’s that time again. That time when gearheads everywhere begin to look ahead to what the upcoming model year has in store for us. And what better way to kickstart this annual ritual than by checking out the class of Chevrolet trucks 2021.

2021 Silverado 1500

One thing is for sure, Chevy hasn’t held back in bulking up the 1500’s safety features. The 2021 model will feature forward collision alert, automatic emergency braking, and front pedestrian braking. All as standard.

Elsewhere, however, the updates are much less headline-grabbing. The 2021 model will boast a power-operated tailgate. And there’s talk that a new offroad model may be introduced. But against that, mooted improvements to the interior have been delayed until 2022.

2021 Silverado Heavy Duty

On the face of things, it’s business as usual for the Silverado HD. Any aesthetic changes to the exterior are frankly nominal. Okay so Chevy has fiddled about a bit with the tailgate on the LT version and there are 2 new colors – Cherry Red Tintcoat and Mosaic Black Metallic – to choose from. But other than that it’s largely a case of steady as she goes.

When it comes to the HD’s interior, however, there’s a bit more to talk about. The front seat layout has been slightly reconfigured to make space for additional storage. On top of that, an auto-dimming rearview mirror with a partial video display now also comes as standard.

On the tech front, the Work Truck and Custom trim levels now come with 2 USB ports. While the LTZ and High Country models offer Apple CarPlay and Android Auto alongside the next-gen SiriusXM 360L infotainment system, as standard.

All in all, however, by far the biggest shake-up of the Heavy Duty range is the introduction of a slew of new special edition models.

2021 Silverado Medium Duty

When it comes to updates for 2021, Chevrolet certainly went all out with their Medium Duty fleet. On the technical side of things, the 4500HD, 5500HD, and the 6500HD, will now be rigged up with an all-new locking rear axle. This nifty piece of engineering greatly bolsters traction as it automatically locks when slippage occurs.

As if that wasn’t enough, Chevy’s engineers have also worked out a way to somehow increase hauling capacity by a whopping 23%. In real-world terms, this means that the Medium Duty range is now capable of hauling a maximum gross weight of 37,000 pounds. A standout achievement which could well become the calling card of Chevrolet trucks 2021.

Into the bargain, Chevy has also developed a brand-new auxiliary switch bank, which provides additional upfitter switches. And to cap it all off, the side view mirrors have been extended to improve visibility.

Introducing the 2021 Honda Pilot

The all-singing, all-dancing 2021 Honda Pilot brings a glut of new updates to the table. As standard, the latest Pilot off the assembly line offers an eye-catching array of upgrades including 9-speed automatic transmission, dual-zone climate control, and paddle shifters. On top of that, you’ll be pleased to know that a slew of other improvements has been introduced across the breadth of the Pilot’s trim line. For example, the Touring now provides onboard WiFi, the Elite now comes with rain-sensing wipers, and the Black Edition now offers red interior lighting. And that’s just for starters.

It doesn’t stop there either. Honda has gone above and beyond and even introduced a whole new trim level. Befitting its title, the Special Edition model delivers a hatful of goodies including 20-inch black wheels and a hands-free tailgate.

Engine and Fuel Economy

The latest Pilot boasts a tweaked V6 engine which is capable of producing a highway-gobbling 280 horsepower as well as an impressive 262 lb-ft of torque.

In terms of fuel economy, the 4 wheel drive version will achieve 20mpg under city-driving conditions and 27mpg out on the highway. Meanwhile, the all-wheel-drive edition fairs only marginally worse, achieving figures of 19mpg and 26mpg respectively.

All Wheel Drive

One major advance is that the 2021 Honda Pilot now offers the option of all-wheel drive. And not any old all-wheel drive at that. Oh no. You see, what the 2021 Pilot actually offers is Honda’s painstakingly engineered all-wheel-drive system, which distributes engine torque between the vehicle’s axles using a hydraulically-actuated rear differential.

Okay, enough with the science, how does all that translate to the road? Well, Honda claims that their all-wheel-drive system improves handling in all conditions. On top of that, the all-wheel-drive system also has the benefit of boosting the Pilot’s maximum tow rating from a more than respectable 3,500 pounds to a whopping 5,000.

Tech Features

One of the drawbacks of a 3-row SUV is that accessing the back row can all too often degenerate into something of an unedifying clamber. Not so with the new Pilot, however. You see, Honda has come up with a bespoke solution which allows the 2nd-row seats to shift electronically. What’s more, operating the helpful mechanism is no more taxing than pushing a button.
