The upcoming 2021 Ram 700 is a brand-new pickup truck that borrows plenty of Fiat Strada cues. First thing first, Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles is already selling the Fiat Strada pickup model in Brazil and Argentina. However, in Mexico and some other Latin American countries, this model will be called Ram 700.
Basically, both models share the same platform and engines. According to a reliable source, the new Ram 700 will be offered in two cab configurations. Also, it will get more refreshments outside, and the interior should feature more luxury. The sales should starts later this year with a slightly increased price compared to Fiat Strada pickup.
2021 Ram 700 Exterior
The latest 2021 Ram 700 will keep the same dimension and shape as its corporate cousin. From the newly released photos, FCA will provide some small improvements. At first glance, the Ram 700 will gain recognized design language that separates it from the rest of the models.
Unlike the Strada model, the forthcoming subcompact pickup will get a new honeycomb grille and sizeable R-A-M lettering in the middle. The same grille we sow on the Rabel models. Moreover, it looks unique, giving more aggressive on the front fascia. The side profile is also stylish thanks to the 17-inch wheels. Basically, new photos reveal that the captured model is probably the base version. So, expect bigger wheels optionally.
As we already mentioned, the newest 2021 Ram 700 will be offered with more upscale materials than the Strada. Generally, the upcoming pickup truck gets a couple of exciting updates.
Firstly, the manufacturer will make seats more comfortable, and it will add a new 7-inch Uconnect touchscreen as standard. This is a significant improvement compared to the Fiat Strada model. On top of that, the infotainment system supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, which is very rare. As you can see, the cabin is much better, and everything is more functional.
2021 Ram 700 Engine Options
The all-new 2021 Ram 700 is the pickup truck that is offered with three trims. The first engine is a 1.4-liter engine that produces not so good output of 85 horsepower. Generally, for such robust construction, this engine is not powerful enough. However, Laramie trim comes with a 1.3-liter turbocharged, providing 13 more horses than the first one or a total of 98 horses.
The new Ram 700 might also offer a 1,9-liter engine that generates 115 hp and 117 lb-ft of torque. Interestingly, Fiat Strada also used the same machine. However, consider that it’s a high probability that a five-speed manual transmission will be offered, with an optional six-speed automatic gearbox.
Price and Release Date
The new 2021 Ram 700 pickup truck looks fresh, and we like the new Rebel-like front grille with large R-A-M lettering in the middle. Believe it or not, the price will slightly increase compared to the Fiat Strada model.
The starting price from many gossips might be around $20,000 for the base model, while range-topping trim could reach $28,000. Expect the new Ram 700 to be available across Latin and South American countries later this year.
