2021 Ram 1500 Tradesman Specs

Ram 1500

The Tradesman is the obvious workhorse in the range. You get hard-wearing vinyl upholstery as standard, but cloth is available at no extra cost. The main safety feature is a rearview camera. Creature comforts include manual air conditioning and a five-inch infotainment system with Bluetooth connectivity. While the specification is rather basic, Ram does give you more than other pickup truck manufacturers. The cosseting ride is standard on all models, and it’s currently in the lead when it comes to safety. This makes it the obvious choice if you care about your fleet drivers. As a side note, Ram also offers some nice warranty options if you buy in bulk.
