2022 2500 Exterior

A bold Ram logo is centered in the grille face and the headlights borrowed from its little brother, the 1500, flare out on each side, giving the front end a bullish appearance. Still, there are definite SUV influences in the exterior design, making this a much better-looking vehicle than the likes of the GMC Sierra or Ford's F-250. The exterior of each trim level also has its own unique look, with entry-level models heavily plastered with steel and black plastic, while top-end models get the chrome treatment. Entry-spec models ride on 17-inch steel wheels, while mid-range versions get 18-inch units. An upgrade to 20-inch alloy wheels can be had on high-end trims, too. Two bed lengths - 8' or 6'4" - can be paired to the Crew Cab, while Regular Cabs come with the eight-foot box, and Mega Cabs with the smaller bed. A single-pane sunroof is optional to all four-door trims but the base model.

Exterior Colors

The palette for 2022 comprises a wide array of colors; however, color choices are trim specific, with some shades not available, or alternatively, exclusive to, various trim levels. To further complicate things, there are twenty additional limited-availability colors to choose from, too. Some highlights from the standard palette include Flame Red and Bright White (at no cost), while Patriot Blue Pearl, Olive Green, and Granite Crystal Metallic can be had at additional cost (ranging in price from $100 to $200). Harvest Sunrise has been newly added this year. There are also several options for a two-tone exterior, including Flame Red/Billet Silver Metallic, Diamond Black Crystal Pearl/Billet Silver Metallic, and Bright White/Billet Silver Metallic. The low volume exterior color choices require a $450 outlay, but will give you access to the likes of Utility Orange, New Holland Blue, or Detonator Yellow.
