2023 Ram 1500
The Ram 1500 is the most awarded full-size truck ever. This year also marks the third year that the Ram brand was recognized as the ‘Best Truck Brand’ by the US News and World Report.
We’ve checked out what the 2023 Ram 1500 will offer and expect this great half-ton will keep its crown as the king. The latest model has all the great features we’ve come to expect. However, there are some additional upgrades, as we found out.
Trims and PricingThe Ram will be available in eight trim levels in 2023: Tradesman, Tradesman HFE, Big Horn (Lone Star), Rebel, Limited Longhorn, Limited, and the TRX.
The starting retail price hasn’t been released yet. We anticipate that the 2023 model will have a slightly higher starting price than the current 2022 model ($44,945). You can contact Varsity Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram for more information on exact pricing.
Engines and PerformanceThe Ram 1500 is available in four engine configurations, each designed to satisfy any driver’s need for speed or the power to get the job done. You’ll be able to purchase the 1500 in a 3.6L Pentastar V6 (269 pound-feet of torque and 305 horsepower). If you have a need for a more powerful engine, you can upgrade to the 3.0L V6 EcoDiesel (480 pound-feet of torque and 260 horsepower) or the 5.7L V8 HEMI eTorque engine (410 pound-feet of torque and 395 horsepower).
If you’re driving on a budget, the 5.7L V8 may be the best choice as this engine configuration has variable valve timing (VVT), significantly improving fuel efficiency. The TRX (rated as the fastest full-size truck globally) will supercharge your need for excitement. This 6.2L V8 HEMI engine outperforms all competitors with 650 pound-feet of torque and 702 horsepower. You’ll also be able to carry 2,300lbs and tow a maximum load of 12,750lbs easily.
DimensionsThe truck will be available in three cab and bed configurations. You’ll have a choice between the Quad Cab (1.95m bed), Crew Cab (1.73m bed), or the Crew Cab (1.95).
InteriorThe Ram has one of the most spacious and upscale interiors that provides ample space for your passengers and to store cargo. The rear offers your passengers eight degrees reclinable heated and cooled seating. With the addition of RamBins with tie-down rings, you’ll get more storage under the seats.
In 2023, you’ll be spoiled with technology upgrades, including an Unconnect5 system configured on a 30.48cm infotainment touchscreen, an Alexa Assistant, Bluetooth connectivity for two mobile devices, navigation, and more.
