The 2022 Ram 2500 is going to be one of the most interesting pickups in the market. Series 2 heavy-duty machine is perfect for experienced truckers. You can drive it and you can tow. Big, bold, and capable, that is the Ram 2500 HD. Plus, options allow you to upgrade the ride with a diesel engine, or the Power Wagon package. Unfortunately, the Series 2 is not supporting dually setup. You can get it by purchasing Ram 3500 and maximize the towing capacity. Still, if you don’t need something to haul 35,000 lbs, the Ram 2500 is still a great choice.
The market for this kind of pickup is not as large as the one for half-tone models. Understandable – people don’t like such big units. On the other hand, it is a serious upgrade over the Ram 1500.
Under the hood of the 2022 Ram 2500 is the huge petrol displacement. However, the usage of a 6.4-liter V8 Hemi unit is a kind of a disappointment. We see this engine powering smaller Ram 1500 or some SUVs. Ford and GM use unique drivetrains for the HD segment. Still, the abovementioned engine is a pretty good performer. It delivers 410 hp and 430 lb-ft of torque. In some other vehicles, it makes even 475 horsepower. An eight-speed automatic gearbox is a power distributor. Rear-wheel drive is standard.
2022 Ram 2500 Diesel
A more popular choice remains an oil burner. Why? Because it delivers 370 horsepower and 850 lb-ft of torque. If you want to get the maximum of this unit, you’ll have to purchase Ram 3500 with 400 ho and 1,000 pound-feet. A 6.7-liter inline-six turbodiesel is paired with the AISIN transmission. Its biggest rival is about to take over another HD truck if the company doesn’t deliver significant upgrades. Allison made the exclamation point with the new 10-speed transfer box.
2022 Ram 2500 Power Wagon, Mega Cab
There are a lot of upgrade options and engines are just the starting point. Buyers will have to pick between the Crew Cab and Mega Cab. Personal preferences and needs will make the decision easier. When you finish that, all you need is to pick a suitable trim level. The 2022 Ram 2500 Power Wagon is the exclusive model available for Series 2 truck. It is an off-road tuned bundle, with 4×4 drive, transfer case, and the special suspension setup that will boost the drive. Skid plates are protecting the underbody, while unique Mojave paintjob and Power Wagon decals are making the pickup more appealing.
The Tradesman is the entry-level trim. The mid-range offer includes Big Horn and Laramie. There, you can obtain features such as 18-inch wheels, heated front buckets, or a larger Uconnect touchscreen display. The company is developing the new infotainment system. Above the Power Wagon, you will find Laramie Longhorn and Limited trims. Both are using premium features, such as leather interior, navigation, Bose audio, or 12-inch display.
Well, the price is going to jump from $34,000 for the Tradesman to $62,000 for the Limited edition. Mega Cab upgrade will cost you about $9,000 and 4×4 drive is $3,000.
