Like the smaller pickup truck Ram 1500, the new 2500 heavy-duty features the same 12.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system. Every Ram HD also includes standard acoustic glass and active noise cancellation, resulting in a quiet ride. The standard package of the Ram 2500 also includes navigation, digital rear camera mirror, trailer reverse steering control, Wi-Fi hotspot, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
2022 Ram 2500 Powertrain Options
Under the hood, the Ram offers three engines to the HD fleet. The first powertrain is available on both 2500 and 3500 Ram models. This 6.4-liter V8 can generate 410 horsepower, and it has a cylinder deactivation feature to help save a bit of fuel during light use. On top of that, it’s connected to an 8-speed automatic transmission with a rear-wheel-drive as the default arrangement. Like on many of today’s trucks, all-wheel drive is optional.
However, the next one is also available on both models, and it consists of a Cummins 6.7-liter inline-6 turbodiesel that delivers 370 horsepower and 850 lb-ft of torque. The last engine powers only Ram 3500. This version drains power from the 6.7-liter turbocharged diesel inline-6 producing 400 horsepower and fantastic torque of 1,000 lb-ft. A specially developed 6-speed automatic transmission is used with these engines.
