The redesigned 2022 Ram HD pickup trucks are coming. If you didn’t know, Ram heavy-duty trucks line consists of the 2500 and 3500 models. Both trucks are top-rated, and they can tow up to 37,100 pounds. On top of that, these trucks’ design is robust, and they are classified as hard workers.
Generally, Ram HD models are above the other rivals in the heavy-duty segment thanks to its excellent ride quality and plenty of luxury options. Neither the Ford nor the Chevy Silverado or GMC Sierra trucks can deliver such incredible power as the Ram models. With the optional Cummins diesel engine, Ram 3500 HD generates a mighty 1,000 lb-ft of torque and 400 hp output.
2022 Ram HD Refreshments
The new 2022 Ram HD will receive some refreshments that are noticeable mostly on the front of the truck. Still, this model offers the same crisp, modern lines similar that we saw on the lighter 1500 Ram model. The front is defined by the directional LED headlights and an attractive split grille.
However, depending on the trim levels, the grille design will vary. For example, the most powered Power Wagon will add several dedicated styling cues as the black grille and more chrome elements. Generally, no matter which model you choose, all models are looking unmistakably muscular.
Same Cabin, More Luxury
The interior of 2022 Ram HD will not differ at all from its predecessor. Basically, like before, each of trim levels has its own particular styling. Moreover, they all shares the same quality built and spacious cabins. Although heavy-duty trucks from Ford, Chevy, and GMC also offer great interiors, Ram provides more comfort, better design, and premium materials.
Every HD model come standard with an 8.0-inch touchscreen, while the giant 12.0-inch touchscreen is offered as optional. Besides, Ram HD also features navigation, Wi-Fi hotspot, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto.
2022 Ram HD Engine Specs
The new 2022 Ram HD is available with three engine options. The standard engine of the Ram 2500/3500 is a gasoline-powered 6.4-litre V8 that generates 410 horsepower. This version comes with a cylinder deactivation feature to help save a bit of fuel. It also sends power through an 8-speed automatic transmission with rear-wheel drive as the default arrangement. Like on many models, all-wheel drive is optional. Also, the next two powertrains are popular Cummins consisting of a 6.7-litre inline-6 turbodiesel.

Release Date and Price
Both 2022 Ram HD models 2500/3500 will introduce some mild changes. Ram officials revealed that we should expect redesigned models in the last quarter of the year. However, pricing will probably remain the same due to the small upgrades.
The current 2500 Tradesman Regular Cab starts at $34,095, while Crew Cab cost an extra $12,780. A 3500 Regular Cab begins at $37,420 and can go up to $55,230 for the Power Wagon model. As you can see, base prices are in line with those of the Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD and Ford F-250 trucks.
