The new heavy-duty truck 2023 Ram 2500 has been confirmed, and its release is set for the following year. Also, many rumors indicate that this generation should be more attractive, offering a very comfy and technology-filled cabin.
If you didn’t know, this three-quarter-ton truck is top-rated on the market, especially in the U.S. market. However, some departments will come unchanged, and with that, we primarily mean about the engine. Like before, the Ram 2500 will continue to use the same two engines. The base model that is still concurrent consists of a 6.4-liter V8 that generates 410 horsepower. Besides this gasoline engine, the manufacturer also offers optional Cummins 6.7-liter inline-6 turbodiesel.
2023 Ram 2500 Redesign
The forthcoming new 2023 Ram 2500 will look refreshed compared to its predecessor. It will receive more modern lines from the news, hosting a massive grille flanked by a new pair of LED headlights. We also can expect more chrome around the grille and on some parts of the body. However, the most favorite option among trucks is still the Power Wagon model.
This model looks more aggressive, thanks to a few extra styling cues. In addition, it comes with a Taller spring and chunky 33-inch-tall Goodyear tires that are also available with the Wrangler SUV. Thanks to them, the Ram 2500 gains around two inches of additional ground clearance, and it can dive through 30.0 inches of water.
The new 2023 Ram 2500 from the latest report will gain the same treatment as the lighter Ram 1500. Considering that, you can expect more quality materials and much more technology inside. The Ram 1500 is the rarest truck that comes standard with a massive center console that hosts a new 12-inch touch screen. So, expect the same with the Ram 2500. In general, the screen is not user-friendly as the 8.4-inch version of the previous generation.
Wireless charging comes standard as well, as five USB ports, including one Type-C port. The Luxury trim is our recommendation because it features open-pore wood accents and a fantastic 17-speaker/750-watt Harman Kardon audio system. As for the safety equipment, we should expect at least a 360-degree camera system, cargo-view camera, blind-spot monitoring, and forward-collision mitigation.
2023 Ram 2500 Powertrain Specs
The new 2023 Ram 2500/3500 will start with the same gasoline-powered 6.4-liter V8 as the outgoing model. This unit delivers excellent performance and is capable of producing 410 horsepower. Unlike many of its rivals, it also features a cylinder deactivation system to help save a bit of fuel during cruising. On the other hand, it comes standard with an 8-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive as standard. All-wheel drive is still optional on entry-level models but is standard choosing the Power Wagon.
Ram, besides the gasoline engine, also offers optional Cummins 6.7-liter inline-6 turbodiesel. This unit can produce 370 horses and 850 lb-ft of torque, translating a maximum towing of 19,370 pounds and a payload of 4,520 pounds.
Release Date and Price
The upcoming 2023 Ram 2500 should hit the markets sometime next year, probably in the first quartal. As we mentioned, Ram will make some upgrades and changes compared to the current model. We can expect a much attractive outside look and an even more stylish cabin. As for the price, it will vary depending on the cab and trim choice.
The 2500 Tradesman (Regular Cab) starts at $35,790, while Crew Cab cost extra $3,555. The mega cab is also available, and it cost an additional $12,780. The Power Wagon (2500, Crew Cab) is the most expensive model that costs $55,230.
