How Useful is the New 2023 Ram 2500 Truck Series? 

Sometimes even a regular full-size pickup might not serve all your business purposes. In such a case, you might look for a truck that has better towing and hauling capacities. The 2023 Ram 2500 is one of those trucks that will not leave any scope for a complaint. Competing against models like the standard Ford F-150, GMC Sierra 2500HD, and the Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD, the 2023 Ram 2500 is currently one of the best in the industry of heavy-duty vehicles.

After a brief update done the last year, the 2023 model year edition of the Ram 2500 series has brought a couple of new techs while installing to its exterior a pair of towing mirrors with next-gen features, showcased by the Southwest Michigan Ram dealer.

New Additions for the Year 2023

The year 2023 brought the Ram truck lovers a well-equipped version of the 2500 series with the following features installed in them:

A new Off-road Rebel trim model, a brand new digital rearview mirror as an optional upgrade, a 12.3-inch digital display for the available instrument cluster, a bunch of optional safety gadgets for the trailer like multiple view modes, a reverse steering control for the trailer, a new trailer pages app, and a blind-spot monitor. In addition to this, the 2023 Ram 2500 models can also be ordered with a new Mopar sports performance hood which is made available for both the Limited and Laramie trim versions.

Performance and Capacity

Ram has given its buyers a new option to drive the 2500 trucks both with gas and diesel. However, for the regular gasoline models, Ram has offered in the 2023 model year edition of 2500 trucks a 6.4-liter naturally aspirated V-8 engine that can kick out 410 hp and 429 lb. ft of torque. With an RWD system set as the standard, the 2023 Ram 2500 can also be driven with all four wheels, by opting for the higher configuration. Likewise, the gas models use the V-8 engine in combination with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The said combo proved its mettle in hauling a good number of people while offering a maximum payload capacity of 3,910 pounds.

The diesel power option for the 2023 Ram 2500 series makes use of a 6.7-liter turbodiesel inline-six engine that can run at 370 hp but a taller torque of 850 lb. ft. when paired to a six-speed auto transmission and an RWD as standard and a 4WD system as optional. This diesel powertrain can be your best option if you want a bigger towing capacity of 19,990 pounds.

As a full-size truck, Ram offers in its 2500 models the option to configure it as a single-row, a two-row, or a three-seated regular cab, apart from its excellent crew and cab options that can seat five or six people. When showing us the bed capacity of the 2023 Ram 2500 models, the sales team of the Southwest Michigan Ram dealership explained that the 2023 Ram 2500 can come with both the options of a 6-foot-4-inch bed that occupies 57.5 cubic feet and an 8-footer variant that can fit in 74.7 cubic feet worth of cargo items.
