2022 Ram 2500 & 3500 Heavy Duty Trucks
The Ram 1500 is one of Canada's most popular half-ton trucks, but sometimes a job needs a little more power than even that model can provide. The 2022 Ram 2500 and 3500 Heavy Duty trucks take the Ram blend of performance, capability, and technology to the next level, and are up to the demands of any task you could set for a pickup. Here are the highlights of these two no-compromise truck models.
Powerful Gas Engine Options
With the Ram Heavy Duty range there's an engine to suit any kind of work. At the entry level, both the 2500 and the 3500 are equipped with a meaty 6.4L Hemi V8 delivering a best-in-class output of 410 horsepower and 429lb-ft of torque. And while this configuration supplies all the grunt you could need for most tasks, it's not at the cost of high gas consumption. Ram's exclusive technology automatically reduces the number of valves in use depending on the engine load, giving fuel economy a boost when full V8 power isn't required.
Next-Level Turbo Diesel
But that's not all. The Heavy Duty range is also available with a high-end 6.7L Cummins turbo diesel mill that offers even more impressive output. The standard configuration produces 370 horsepower and a mighty 850lb-ft of torque, and is available on both the 2500 and the 3500. But for the ultimate in power, a re-tuned version of the same engine cranks out fully 420 horsepower and 1,075lb-ft, and is available only on the larger 3500 model.
Towing and Payload
The true measure of a truck's capability is its payload and towing capacities, and both the 2500 and the 3500 offer some enticing numbers. The lighter Ram 2500 can carry up to 1,823kg in payload, which is impressive enough, but the 3500 model boasts a truly amazing figure of 3,491kg.
The towing capabilities are even more eye-catching. Choosing the diesel engine means the 2500 can pull up to 9,091kg in trailer weight, while the 3500 ups the ante to a market-leading 16,859kg. No matter how heavy the loads you need to haul, the Ram Heavy Duty lineup will step up to the plate.
However, these Ram trucks are about more than sheer power. The level of technology on offer is second to none, with an all-new infotainment system based around touchscreen displays of up to 12" and boasting more memory and speed than ever before.
Regular features include smartphone integration through Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, along with a Wi-Fi hotspot facility. But to make the most of that huge towing capacity, the in-built navigation has a tow-friendly mode that ensures you'll only be directed down routes that are passable when you have a trailer following behind.
