(Posted on May 21, 2021 at 06:30PM by Josh Lew)
<a href="[New%2CRAM%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C]"><img src="/images/upload/May_2021/2021_ram_1500_classic_economy.jpg"alt="RAM 1500 Classic holding two motorcycles in its bed"/></a>If you buy a truck, you will likely seek out a vehicle with the capabilities to handle anything you throw at it. At the same time, you don’t want this muscle to come with excessively high fuel costs. How do two of Alberta’s most popular light-duty pickups, the 2021 RAM 1500 Classic SLT and GMC Sierra Elevation, compare when it comes to gas use?

RAM 1500 Classic SLT

: 3.6L Pentastar V6
Transmission: 8-speed automatic
City Economy: 13.9 L/100 km
Highway Economy: 9.6 L/100 km

GMC Sierra Elevation

: 2.7L V6
Transmission: 8-speed automatic
City Economy: 13 L/100 km
Highway Economy: 11.4 L/100 km

Despite shaving off nearly two litres in fuel consumption for every 100 km compared to the Sierra Elevation, the Classic SLT does not sacrifice anything in terms of performance. With 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque, this truck can tow up to 2,240 kg. 

The RAM 1500 Classic offers the option to upgrade to a 5.7L HEMI V8. This powertrain gives you 395 hp and 410 lb.-ft of torque and a combined highway/city fuel economy of 14 L/100 km. 

Contact our St. Paul, AB dealership to learn more about the 2021 RAM 1500 Classic SLT’s capabilities and schedule a test drive.

However, if you compare the pulling and hauling capabilities, one of the pair stands out - making the shopping choice for Canadians consumers considerably easier. 

2021 Ram 1500 Classic: Towing Abilities

: 3.6L Pentastar V6
Towing Capacity: 3298 kg
Payload Capacity: 866 kg
Max Cargo Bed Length: 1930 mm

2021 Honda Ridgeline: Towing Abilities

: 3.5L SOHC V6
Towing Capacity: 2267 kg
Payload Capacity: 694 kg
Max Cargo Bed Length: 1625mm

No matter how you measure, the 2021 Ram 1500 Classic is a more able hauler, leaving its Honda competitor in the dust with every standard metric (the truck also has an available 5.7 HEMI V8 engine, however, that's capable of towing up to 4,813 kg. This further propels it past the Ridgeline). Regardless of your powertrain choice, you get a four and seven-pin wiring harness, trailer sway control, and a locking tailgate..

Contact our St. Paul, AB dealership to learn more about the 2021 Ram 1500 Classic’s cargo-hauling capabilities - and don't forget to schedule a test-drive with our team. We will happily provide you with access to exceptional towing prowess.
