New 2022 Ram 3500 will continue to offer great capability and versatility. If you are looking for a towing machine, Ram 3500 is the best choice that Ram has to offer. With the best possible configuration, this truck can tow above 35,000 pounds, which is astonishing. A turbodiesel is available once again and it provides great performances. Improvements are likely, so 2022MY will be the best one yet. You can find a lot of rumors, regarding new transmission.
However, that is very unlikely to happen. This truck already gained some updates, so the new one won’t feature so dramatic changes. Instead, Ram opted for another mid-cycle facelift. Besides diesel, a gasoline engine is also available. We hope to see small improvements in terms of power and fuel efficiency. On top of that, the interior will gain various technology updates. The competition is getting stronger and here’s everything you need to know.
Ram 3500 Specs
As before, Ram 3500 offers a standard 6.4-liter Hemi engine. It is a gasoline V8 output that generates 410 hp and 430 lb-ft of torque. Some reports are suggesting more power for this engine, as this unit also powers some of the brand’s SUVs and it provides stronger performances. You can also find a lot of speculations regarding the Hellcat engine, but that won’t happen as well. A diesel engine is optional and it is a familiar 6.7-liter turbodiesel engine.
It develops 400 horsepower and over 1000 lb-ft of torque. However, we can’t predict how much torque a diesel engine will produce. A six-speed automatic transmission is available, along with the standard rear-wheel-drive system. An all-wheel-drive setup is optional. With the best possible configuration, Ram 3500 will be able to tow over 35,000 pounds. Those are some astonishing figures, but it requires a diesel engine and dual-rear-wheel setup as well.
The all-new 2022 Ram 3500 truck is available in three cabin styles. Everything starts with the regular cab, but you can also opt for a crew cab or mega cab configurations. On top of that, Ram offers both short and long-bed options. Trim levels won’t change, but this heavy-duty truck already offers a lot of trims. Tradesman is the base trim level that offers basic stuff. Laramie is a much better option and its price is not drastically higher. However, Laramie can’t be loaded with the regular cab. On the other hand, it provides more standard features.
Ram 3500 Limited is the range-topping trim level, as before. For example, the base trim level comes with 17-inch wheels and a smaller 5-inch display. Limited offers a large 12-inch unit, larger wheels, and plenty of luxury. If you are looking for the mid-grade trim level, Big Horn is the answer. As for the changes, the new model will gain an updated infotainment system and additional driver-assistance aids. A small 5-inch touchscreen has to be replaced, so we hope to see at least a 7-inch unit in the future.
2022 Ram 3500 Release Date, Price
The price of the 2022 Ram 3500 should start at around $32,500. As before, this truck will continue to rival other heavy-duty models such as Ford F-350 and Chevy Silverado 3500HD. The sales should begin by the end of the year. Hopefully, Ram will reveal more details in the coming months.
