Unfortunately, the coming year will not bring many changes. But we are confident that the 2023 Ram 1500 will remain one of the segment’s best trucks. The Ram 1500 will still compete with the Ford F-150 and Chevy Silverado 1500. Ford and Chevrolet aim to produce all-electric versions of their best-selling models. Ram hasn’t said anything about the upcoming Ram 1500 EV.
The new Ram 1500 will keep the same exterior style and interior quality. Moreover, the iconic pickup truck’s engine options remain unchanged. The sales will start in the summer of 2022 and here’s everything we know about this model so far.
Changes and Upgrades
The new 2023 Ram 1500 does not distinguish out in terms of exterior design. Regardless of engine, trim level, or cab configuration, the truck has the same design language. The same goes for interior design. The cabin is one of the best in the market. The overall quality is great, as are the materials.
As before, higher trim levels offer more luxury. The new Ram 1500 will also come with mid-cycle updates. As a result, we expect a minor exterior redesign. The interior will include more standard features and the latest technologies. Still, we are waiting for the first spy photos. Who knows, maybe Ram plans to provide a surprise or two.
Ram 1500 Trim Levels
The upcoming 2023 Ram 1500 will come in the following trim levels: Tradesman, Big Horn, Rebel, Laramie, Long Horn, and Limited. The regular Tradesman trim has steel wheels and very basic features. It has a 5-inch touchscreen, a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, and a push-button start. The Big Horn is better. Aluminum wheels, fog lights, and an 8.4-inch touchscreen are all on offer.
The Laramie is a mid-level option with leather upholstery and heated/ventilated seats. The Longhorn adds premium leather, bucket seats, wood accents, and more. Finally, the Limited trim adds real luxury and more standard features. The Rebel is the way to go for sportiness and performance. Ram won’t provide any sort of changes in the lineup, but new optional packages could become available.
Under the Hood
The forthcoming 2023 Ram 1500 comes with gas, diesel, and hybrid engines. No changes to the engine lineup this time. The 2023MY gets the same 3.6-liter V6 gasoline engine. This engine has 305 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque. A 5.7-liter Hemi V8 is optional. It has 395 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque.
A 3.0-liter EcoDiesel makes 260 horsepower and 480 lb-ft of torque. If you prefer a hybrid, it has a 3.6-liter V6 engine and an electric motor. Of course, the hybrid variant provides improved fuel efficiency. Finally, there is a strong Ram Rebel TRX with a Hellcat engine. This version has over 700 hp and it provides a lot of sportiness.
2023 Ram 1500 Price and Availability
Pricing for the 2023 Ram 1500 pickup truck is not available right now. This iconic model is available for around $30,000 at the moment. The price won’t change significantly, which is great to hear. The Ram 1500 will continue to compete with the Ford F-150 and GMC Sierra 1500. This popular pickup truck will hit the dealerships next summer.
I’ve owned the 2019, 2020, 2021 Ram Limited, electrical problems with all.. Ram needs something like OnStar, something that works and has someone to speak with. You pay just as much, the system Is not much better than having nothing. It’s bad enough to send me back to the GM Denali Ultimate.
Customer Service at the dealership and Ram, sub par; they could care less. I have a problem and they say they’re researching it, no calls, they could care less. My opinion.
