The Ram 1500 Classic SLT Brings a Unique Rotary Shifter to St. Paul, AB

May 23,2022

The  2021 Ram 1500 Classic  SLT proves a perfect addition to any adventure. This platform pairs an 8-speed automatic transmission with a 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine to assure smooth performance on the highway (a 5.7L HEMI V8 is also available for those craving more power); and,  to further optimize each errand, the truck also has an electronic "E-shifter" that is unique to the market.  

The 2021 1500 Classic SLT uses a rotary dial for moving between Park, Neutral, Reverse, and Drive. The knob sits on the dashboard, so it takes up much less room than a standard lever-style option. The buttons for the Shift-on-the-Fly 4x4 system are located underneath this gear selector, affording quick operator access. 

By saving space, the 2021 Ram 1500 Classic SLT opens up the centre console for three cup-holders, a storage compartment, and a place to hold a smartphone while charging it via the 12-volt or USB outlets. This helps to maximize convenience on each trip, allowing passengers to easily accommodate everyday cargo.

To see these features - alongside additional storage options, such as in-floor compartments and an overhead console - contact our St. Paul, AB dealership today and schedule a test drive. We will gladly connect you to the perfect Ram platform.
