If you are looking for a truck with impressive towing and hauling abilities, the new 2022 Ram 3500 is the right choice. This truck does the job effectively and quickly. Ram will focus more on its heavy-duty lineup and will most likely provide further improvements. If you want the best possible performance, a combination of dual-rear wheels and diesel powertrain is the best choice.
Of course, the gasoline unit will be in the offer, as always before. Unlike Series 2, the new Ram 3500 won’t offer the Power Wagon variant. Still, we can’t wait to see a new truck on the roads with the latest mid-cycle refreshments. The sales will begin in the second half of next year, and the price should remain intact.
2022 Ram 3500 Specs
The base variant comes with a standard 6.4-liter Hemi V8 engine. The 2022 Ram 3500 with this gasoline engine will produce 410 horsepower and 430 lb-ft of torque. This is more than enough power for the entry-level Ram 3500.
The same unit is available in the brand’s SUVs, and it provides 475 hp. However, FCA won’t deliver so much power to its Ram 3500. Moreover, speculations about the famous Hellcat engine inside the heavy-duty trucks are false.
As we said already, the best possible choice is a 6.7-liter turbodiesel engine. The forthcoming 2022 Ram 3500 with the Cummins engine provides up to 400 horsepower. More importantly, it will generate 1000 lb-ft of torque. Interestingly, the same engine inside the 2500 variant provides 370 hp. The power will go through a 6-speed automatic transmission.
Rear-wheel-drive remains standard, while the all-wheel-drive system will be optional once again. If you wonder, Ram 3500 can tow up to 35,000 pounds. It is the same towing capacity that Ford offers on its F-350 HD truck. Still, Ram 3500 will need a dual-rear wheel setup to achieve those figures.
Trim Levels and Optional Equipment
You can get a new 2022 Ram 3500 in a regular, crew cab and mega cab body styles. Moreover, you’ll have to choose between short and long-bed options. Trim levels are different in terms of standard and optional features. The base Tradesman trim is good, but still a few steps behind trim levels such as Laramie. The Laramie variant is not available in a Regular Cab, but it adds more equipment. As before, Ram 3500 Limited remains the range-topping trim level. The base trim level offers an outdated 5-inch touchscreen and 17-inch rims.
Big Horn provides larger wheels and more upright materials on the inside. Laramie will arrive with heated seats and a larger touchscreen. The Longhorn will offer leather upholstery and a premium audio system. The top-of-the-range Limited trim looks premium, especially on the inside. This variant will get a 12-inch display, additional driver-assistance aids, 20-inch alloy wheels, and more unique styling cues.
