The new 2023 Ram 3500 HD is one of the most robust trucks in the segment. This model is known for its impressive towing, payload, and efficiency. Also, it uses a powerful 6.7-liter CumminsTurbo Diesel engine, producing 400 horses and 1,000 lb-ft of torque. A specially developed 6-speed automatic transmission is available, providing smooth shifting. Thanks to that, the Ram 3500 has never met a job it couldn’t handle.
Like the previous generation, this truck will be available with either a spacious Crew Cab or an even bigger Mega Cab with more rear legroom and reclining seats.
2023 Ram 3500 HD Redesign
Outside, the new 2023 Ram 3500 HD will not differ too much from its predecessor. It still looks robust, especially if you choose Mega Cab over the Crew Cab model. Crisp, modern lines are present on the front end, with narrow directional LED headlights that flank a split grille.
Depending on trim level, both 2500 HD and 3500 HD models have their own versions of the grille. For example, if you go for the Power Wagon, you’ll get several more styling cues. Either way, the Ram 2500 is still available with a single-rear-wheel layout, while Ram 3500 comes with both single rear wheels or dual rear wheels (dually) choices.
Cabin Comes With Massive Center Console
The new 2023 Ram 3500 HD has more updates inside than expected. The cabin is modern and is very quiet, thanks to active noise cancellation and acoustic glass. The materials used inside are of good quality, and you can find natural wood and metal. The massive center console offers a 12-inch touch screen that looks great, but it isn’t as user-friendly as the 8.4-inch version with real knobs and buttons.
Wireless charging is also available as standard, along with up to five USB ports, including a newer Type-C port. There’s also black vinyl flooring, a rearview camera with dynamic gridlines, and an audio system with four speakers. Upper trim like Luxury is heightened by full leather interiors and a 17-speaker/750-watt Harman Kardon audio system.
