The New 2022 RAM 2500

The new 2022 Ram 2500 is here and better than ever! Improving an already stellar truck is no easy task, but Dodge has pulled it off. With new features, upgraded styling, and several trim levels available, there is a 2500 to suit your needs.


A perennial leader of its class, the Ram 2500 always impresses with its interior luxuries, smooth ride and strong powertrain. The 2022 version extends this legacy and was chosen as Car & Driver’s Editor’s Choice in the heavy-duty pickup truck category.


A main attraction of the new 2022 Ram 2500 is the latest version of the Uconnect infotainment software, which responds more quickly and offers new content for 2022, making the ride more enjoyable than ever. On the more utilitarian side, the available Tow mode rearview camera provides an easy way to keep an eye on your trailer and its cargo while on the move.

Drivetrain Specs

Two engine configurations are available for 2022: a 6.4L Hemi V8 and a turbocharged 6.7L Cummins diesel inline six, each capable of hauling weighty cargo. The standard Hemi engine boasts best in class power at 410 HP and 429 pound-feet of torque to the wheels. The Cummins diesel engine offers surprising responsiveness, a low noise profile, and minimal vibration while outputting 370 horsepower and 850 pound-feet of torque.

Trim Levels of 2022 Ram 2500

Several trim levels are available for the 2022 Ram 2500, ranging from the workhorse Tradesman to the luxurious Limited. Finding the right trim for you can be a challenge. This is where Patriot CDJR of McAlester comes in.


In this article we’re going to give you specifics on each trim level and point out the differences among them. Without further ado, let’s dive into the details.


2022 Ram 2500 Tradesman
A workhorse if there ever was one, the Ram 2500 Tradesman is the entry-level trim for 2022. Designed to get the dirty work done, the Tradesman offers the usual Ram 2500 power, towing capacity and reliability.


Although considered a utilitarian model, the Tradesmen still offers plenty of creature comforts so you can focus on getting things done. The combination of standard active noise cancelation inside the cabin and acoustic glass keep things quiet while cruising from one job to another.  The standard front stabilizer bar and heavy-duty suspension absorb bumps, giving you a surprisingly smooth ride.


Standout features

  • Heavy duty vinyl 40/20/40 split bench provides flexibility for carrying passengers and cargo.
  • Standard towing capacity of 15,040 pounds.

2022 Ram 2500 Big Horn/Lone Star
The next 2022 Ram 2500 trim level is the Big Horn/Lone Star model. Besides the basic features of the Tradesman, this trim level also offers additional seating configurations, along with the option for the more spacious Mega Cab.


Other upgrades over the Tradesman include a chrome grill and bumper, plus upgraded wheels. The Lone Star is available exclusively in Texas, but the Big Horn offers the same standard features and available options.


Standout features:

  • Uconnect 5 infotainment system with 8.4 inch touchscreen display.
  • Mega Cab option to comfortably seat six passengers.

2022 Ram 2500 Laramie
Our next 2022 Ram 2500 trim level is the Laramie model, a mainstay of the Ram pickup truck line. Positioned as balance between features and price, the Laramie might be the best value of mid-level heavy-duty pickup trucks on the market.


Also available in the Mega Cab configuration, the Laramie trim level includes exterior upgrades like standard chrome exterior mirrors, LED tail lamps, and LED fog lights. Standard interior amenities are 8-way power adjustable and heated front seats, high back rear seats, and a 60/40 split rear bench. Additional exterior and interior colors and options are also offered.


Standout features:

  • Standard Alpine Speaker system with 9 speakers and subwoofers.
  • Air-conditioner with dual-zone auto temperature control.

2022 Ram 2500 Power Wagon
Considered the most capable off-road production truck on the market, the 2022 Ram 2500 Power Wagon is our next trim level. Available exclusively with the Hemi V8 engine paired with four-wheel drive, the Power Wagon handles less-traveled roads with aplomb.


The Power Wagon’s capabilities are enhanced by standard suspension components like Tru-Lok front and rear axles, front disconnecting stabilizer bar, and the Ram Articulink, enabling navigation of even the most treacherous terrain.


Standout features:

  • Suspension components designed to handle any off-road terrain.
  • Available equipment package upgrades to add creature comforts and/or increase off-road performance.

2022 Ram 2500 Limited
The last new 2022 Ram 2500 trim level is the Limited, the most stylish and luxurious option of this year’s offerings. Ideal for drivers who desire the functionality of a heavy-duty pickup truck while maximizing drivability and comfort, the Limited offers a peerless driving experience.


With standard features such as leather interior, bucket seats, and a 12 inch Uconnect touchscreen, it’s easy to mistake a ride in the Limited for one in a luxury sedan. Standard 20” wheels with chrome inserts, power running boards, and chrome bodyside molding are just a few of the Limited’s exterior upgrades.


Also available is the Longhorn version of the Limited trim level, which exchanges the standard black interior for brown leather with wood and aluminum accents, among other minor aesthetic changes.


Standout features:

  • Standard 12” Uconnect 5 touchscreen infotainment system.
  • 100% leather bucket seats and 60/40 rear folding bench.
