Trucks / 10 Comments

More luxury, more trims, and more capability on the 1500, 2500, and 3500.

  • Available 12-inch frameless digital gauge cluster (all models)
  • Trailer Reverse Steering Control to automate towing in reverse (2500/3500)
  • Rearview mirror screen with rear and side camera available on 2500/3500
  • New Ram 1500 Limited Elite Edition

The Ram lineup of trucks might lag behind Ford and Chevy for overall sales, but they do offer many best-in-class features, performance, and capabilities. Ram has outlined what will be available for the 2023 model year, enhancing both light- and heavy-duty trucks across the lineup with new tech inside the cabin, towing aids, and styling tweaks to freshen up the front end.

The Ram truck lineup is extremely vast. Starting with the popular Ram 1500 and all of its various trims up to the outrageous TRX, up to the 2500 and 3500 Heavy Duty. The 2023 Ram lineup may not have earthshaking changes like the Dodge V8 models, but the highlights are meaningful in a segment where buyers are hungry for value.

Starting from the bottom, the 1500 received several changes. The trim lineup is bolstered by a new special edition Limited Elite Edition boasting a locking multifunction tailgate, deployable bed step, adjustable cargo tie-down hooks, a bed extender, and cargo divider. The interior gets premium leather upholstery, unique instrumentation, a jeweled rotary shifter, heated and ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, and a suede headliner.

This is joined by the continuation of the 1500 (RAM) RED Edition, which supports global health emergencies and features a UV-C bacteria-killing glovebox.

For the new year, a 12-inch frameless digital gauge cluster is optional, with five reconfigurable tiles to tailor the display to your needs. This system gives you the choice of analog or digital instrumentation and various user profiles can be saved for multiple drivers.

On the infotainment front, models with the 12-inch Uconnect 5 touchscreen get an Emergency Vehicle Alert System to warn of approaching first responders ahead of time.

All 1500s have a rear-seat reminder and an LED lamp in the tailgate handle.

The Rebel boasts Selec-Speed Control as standard, which is available as an option on Big Horn, Lone Star, Laramie, Limited Longhorn, and Limited trucks, while the latter three variants can also spec 22-inch all-terrain tires.

Pricing has not yet been confirmed for any of the trucks, but a previous leak suggests that the increases should be minimal. The Ram 1500 TRX will see a $565 increase and start at $79,355 for the new model year. The remainder of the trims include the Tradesman, Tradesman HFE, Big Horn/Lone Star (the latter only found in Texas), Laramie, Rebel, Limited Longhorn, and Limited.

In the heavy-duty classification, 2500 and 3500 models get fewer upgrades. The same 12-inch configurable gauge cluster from the 1500 is available here, but the larger trucks also get a new digital rearview mirror, which can showcase video from rear and side cameras within the display or be turned off to act as a traditional mirror.

With a focus on hard work and heavy towing - necessary when the 3500 boasts a best-in-class towing capacity of up to 37,090 lbs (20,000 lbs on the 2500) - Trailer Reverse Steering Control joins the options list for a semi-autonomous trailer reversing experience requiring no steering inputs. New trailer tow mirrors with telescoping functionality are available on all trims, and the camera systems have been enhanced with more views and a new Trailer Tow pages app.

Lastly, the Laramie and Limited trims can spec a Mopar sport performance hood.

The 2500 and 3500 retain four bed/cab configurations, and both can be had with the popular 6.7-liter Cummins turbo-diesel engine generating 850 lb-ft of torque on the 2500 and 1,075 lb-ft on the 3500.

The 2500 and 3500 are available in the following trims: Tradesman, Big Horn/Lone Star, Power Wagon, Laramie, Limited Longhorn, and Limited.
