When shopping for a Ram pickup, you have several options available to you, even though the full-size, light-duty Ram 1500 is more than enough for most people. If you need even greater power and capability in your truck, however, then you should consider a heavy-duty model such as the 2022 Ram 2500 and 2022 Ram 3500 pickups. Both of these trucks deliver incredible amounts of power with engines that leave most other trucks well behind, plus payload and towing capabilities that can handle anything you throw at them.
In terms of power, both of these trucks have at least two different engines for you to choose from, including a 6.4L HEMI V8 and a 6.7L Cummins Turbo Diesel engine. If you go with the Ram 3500, however, then there is a third engine available: a high-output version of the Turbo Diesel with even greater horsepower and torque, so you can get the kind of power you need to get your job done. As you might expect, all of that muscle translates into very impressive payload and towing capacities that put most other trucks to shame. The Ram 2500 can handle up to 20,000 lbs of maximum towing, while the Ram 3500 tips the scales at more than 37,000 lbs of maximum towing.
You might not initially think that impressive interior features are all that important in your truck, but comfort and great tech can really make a difference. There is nothing better than a hardworking, heavy-duty pickup that can act as your mobile office with impressive connectivity and an available 12-inch infotainment display to let you take advantage of everything it has to offer. Other great features like an available digital rear view display and even a 17-speaker surround-sound system take things further; who says work has to be uncomfortable? With the Ram 2500 or 3500, you will be able to tackle any job surrounded by luxury.
When you look at any kind of vehicle, the engine is always important since so much about your driving experience depends on the engine you get. With a truck, however, the engine is even more important; and when you look at a heavy-duty pickup, then it becomes more vital still. Both the 2022 Ram 2500 and the 2022 Ram 3500 are very powerful, with great engines for you to choose from, though the Ram 3500 does have one extra option.
The standard engine on both of these trucks is fantastic, so even if you do not change a thing, you will get a powerful pickup. They both start with a 6.4L HEMI V8 engine that delivers 410 hp and 429 lb-ft of torque for powerful and impressive performance. This engine comes paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission that is quick and responsive, so it delivers on a level of refinement that you do not find in a lot of heavy-duty trucks.
If you are interested in a diesel engine, or you simply want more power, then there is an available 6.7L Cummins Turbo Diesel I-6 that provides 370 hp and 850 lb-ft of torque. While this is a bit less horsepower than the standard engine, the massive boost in torque – nearly double – more than makes up for it and ensures fantastic power on the road. This is the most powerful engine for the Ram 2500 and provides it with the highest towing capacity possible.
There is a third option if you are looking for even more power, though it is only offered on the 2022 Ram 3500, not the 2500. This is a high-output version of the Cummins Turbo Diesel engine, which is tuned to deliver 420 hp and 1,075 lb-ft of torque. We might not have to point out just how much greater torque this is, but we will anyways: it is more than two-and-a-half times more powerful than the standard engine in these trucks. If you want the absolute highest towing capacity possible with the Ram 3500, then this is the engine for you. Both versions of the diesel engine come with a 6-speed automatic transmission that is perfectly tuned for diesel performance.
Raw power in your engines is always a great thing with a truck since it ensures a more responsive driving experience when you are in a large and heavy pickup. With heavy-duty models like the 2022 Ram 2500 and Ram 3500 pickups, that power means more than simply a number on a page or quick acceleration. The engines in these trucks, along with their design, allow them to handle a huge amount of weight so you can get your job done.
In terms of payload, both of these trucks are quite impressive. The engine you choose will have a big impact on how much weight you can load onto them since the weight of the engine can take away from your payload capacity. Let us take a quick look at the maximum payloads for both of these trucks, based on the engine you might choose:
As you probably expect, the Ram 3500 has greater payload capacity due to its design. In particular, these numbers are for a dual-rear-wheel model, which is not available with the Ram 2500. So if you want the greatest payload possible, then be sure to keep that in mind.
In terms of towing capacity, the numbers are somewhat similar when you compare them, with the Ram 3500 coming out on top again. Let us take a look at what each truck can do:
As you would expect, the 2022 Ram 3500 once again comes out on top due to its available High-Output version of the diesel engine and its dual-rear-wheel configuration, neither of which is available on the Ram 2500. These two factors really come together to deliver superior capability, particularly if you are looking at doing some gooseneck or fifth-wheel towing with one of these trucks. The important thing to keep in mind, however, is that the Ram 3500 is not necessarily better than the Ram 2500 – it just offers greater towing and payload. If your towing and payload needs are met by the Ram 2500, then it could definitely be the right truck for you, so consider that while shopping for your next pickup.
When you are looking at a heavy-duty truck, the first thing that comes to mind might not be impressive luxury and technology features. For a long time, robust and powerful performance meant you had to accept a barebones interior, but not anymore. Both the 2022 Ram 2500 and Ram 3500 models have excellent standard and available features inside when it comes to luxury, comfort, and technology for you to take advantage of.
Luxurious interior materials like 100% leather seating might not be the most important thing to you in your heavy-duty truck, but it is worth considering. If you are going to spend countless hours driving your truck to and from job sites, hauling trailers full of building materials and other supplies behind you, then you should be comfortable while you do it. Options like the available digital rearview display let you easily see behind your vehicle, even while towing a large trailer or camper. Think of your heavy-duty pickup as a mobile office where you can get lots of work done even while you are on the road or waiting at a jobsite.
The available center console with a charging station makes this easy, letting you get the most from a laptop or tablet while on the road. You can use the available RamBox cargo management system to stay equipped with everything you need, and it includes a 115-volt outlet that you can connect to whatever device you need to charge. The available 12-inch infotainment display not only looks great but is perfect for keeping track of directions on the navigation system. This screen is also ideal for viewing advanced towing software like an available Trailer 360-Degree Surround View camera system that gives you a virtual bird’s eye view around your trailer.
