There might some minor updates on the front fascia and also put on standard equipment for the interior. For the 2021 model, this car will be more aggressive on the overall look with small exterior modifications. Thus, the 2022 Ram 2500 would also get the same treatment.

Ram 2500 will lose some weight on its main body. It will have an intelligent design. The Ram would look boxier rather than bulky.  

A modern look also will appear more this time. It is rumored that the new model will look closer to the Ram 1500 pickup. Also, you may expect more shiny trims on this Ram 2500. There are also will be some minor modifications upfront.

The modification will be on the highlights and grille that will get a new touch. Further, the improvements will also be in the styling because Ram will refresh by trimming into minor details. There will also be some new color options that will give you more choices.

At this moment, there is not much information about the detail of the exterior itself. Ram refused to deliver more specific information. Spy shots will show up in the coming months for sure. But many already speculate this model will satisfy the buyer.

2022 RAM 2500 HD Interior

The interior will come with some update, but the comfort terms is still a priority. As for the changes, Ram will introduce new high-tech features, and it will return a couple of exciting features and packages in the offer.

The large cabin design will not get any change and probably the same as the previous model for sure. It will offer spacious space for its passengers. The interior layout and seating configurations will also be similar.

The 2022 Ram will indeed offer more technology features. The high-tech amenity is confirmed will be more provided. Several modern features will be included.

This pickup truck will get more standard equipment, such as new driver-assistance aids and brand new infotainment systems. Therefore, the manufacturer will find it be more straightforward by separating the luxury levels for each trim level.

There is also a big touch screen display that comes built-in. An 8.4-inch touchscreen is a standard touchscreen display. However, the buyer can buy a 12-inch unit, which is also an option.

Ram will also provide all of the critical updates for the entertainment system. Therefore, you can get a new system that will be much quicker and responsive.  All of this will make the experience of the passengers even better.

The Trailer Tire Pressure Monitoring and the auxiliary camera system will be included in the tech amenities list. Not only that, but Ram will also offer the Blind-Spot Monitoring system on the trim level.

Compared to the eleven versions that Ram offered before, the current generation only has seven trim levels. But in the heavy-duty truck class, we can’t find any other car that provides the same luxury that Ram’s upper trim levels offered. Not to mention, you wouldn’t find any complaint about Ram’s safety rating.

Engine Specifications & Capabilities

You can pick three different engine options for this soon-to-be-released car.  One single diesel and two gasoline powertrains would be an option that customers could choose.  However, optional diesel is the most popular choice on the workhorse such as Tradesman.

The upcoming 2022 RAM 2500 HD will keep the 5.7-liter V8 as the engine’s standard powertrain choice. This engine can produce 385 horsepower with 400 lb-ft of torque. But there also will be another option.

Upgrading the engine to a 6.4-liter Hemi V8 one is highly recommended for those who want better performance. Although this engine is optional, it can generate 410 horsepower with 430 lb-ft of torque. You can say that this impressive diesel engine is the best part of this truck.

Not stopping there, there’s also 6.7-liter Cummins that provides 370 horsepower. Sure, the number is the least compared to the previously mentioned two options. But in the current Ram 2500 has been rated at 930 lb-ft of torque.

The new 2022 model should release small improvements in terms of hauling ability and towing capacity. The current RAM 2500 capable tow up to 19,680 lbs when equipped with 6.7L Cummins Turbo Diesel Engine for the record. Customers can still choose between manual or automatic transmission – which both 6-speed.
