For some people, the impressive performance and terrific features of the Ram 1500 are all the truck they need to get their job done. If you are looking for something more, however, with greater towing and payload capacities while still giving you the fantastic interior features and options of a Ram truck, then the 2022 Ram 2500 is the perfect choice. This heavy-duty truck delivers a tremendous amount of capability thanks to a bold design and two different engine options. If you find this still does not meet your needs for towing, particularly for a fifth-wheel or gooseneck setup, then you should take a look at the Ram 3500 pickup.
You have two remarkable engines to choose from with the Ram 2500, starting with a 6.4L HEMI V8 gas engine that delivers 410 hp and comes paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission. If you are looking for even greater capability, then there is an available 6.7L Cummins turbo diesel that offers 850 lb-ft of torque and comes with a 6-speed automatic. No matter which engine you choose, you are going to get a truck with a ton of power in it and the ability to tackle anything you throw at it. The standard gas engine can handle up to 17,540 lbs of towing when properly equipped, while the diesel engine pushes that up to 20,000 lbs of max towing.
Any truck can be designed to pull a bunch of weight behind it; what really sets the 2022 Ram 2500 apart, however, is the fantastic technology that it comes with. For example, an available Trailer 360-degree Surround View system lets you see a virtual representation around your truck, including whatever you are towing, while an available digital rearview mirror includes a tow mode to give you a live view from a trailer camera, so you have incredible rear visibility. The available 12-inch infotainment display with Ram’s latest Uconnect 5 software might seem like pure luxury, but it will help you get your job done while staying connected.
The heart of any great truck is always going to be its engine, so you need to make sure you choose a pickup that has the kind of power you deserve. This is not just about big numbers or bragging rights; a powerful engine in a truck directly translates to being able to get your job done. The 2022 Ram 2500 has two different engines for you to choose from, so you can decide on the right amount of power for what you are looking for and the kind of capability you need for the toughest jobs.
For the Ram 2500, the standard engine is a 6.4L HEMI V8 that delivers 410 hp and 429 lb-ft of torque, which comes paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission. If you want greater towing capacity, or you prefer a diesel engine, then there is also an available 6.7L Cummins Turbo Diesel I-6 that delivers 370 hp and a massive 850 lb-ft of torque. This diesel engine comes paired with a 6-speed automatic, and both options give you an impressive amount of power to get work done.
No matter which engine you choose, it comes with two-wheel drive standard and has four-wheel drive available – though the Power Wagon trim comes with 4x4 standard instead, since it has a powerful, off-road design. The Power Wagon also only has the standard HEMI engine available, but all other trims let you choose between both engines. While the Ram 2500’s standard suspension is excellent, if you want to take your ride to the next level, then there is an available auto-level rear air suspension that provides a smooth driving experience. It even includes a bed lowering mode that brings the rear suspension down to make it easier to hitch up a trailer.
A powerful engine and impressive drivetrain are great, but you can find that in a wide range of vehicles; a modern sports car might have more horsepower than even the most impressive truck out there. What really matters with a pickup is how that power is translated into real-world performance, which means you need to look at the towing and payload capacity on any truck you are interested in. Fortunately, the 2022 Ram 2500 is built to get any job done, so you can configure it with towing and payload to meet your needs. Remember that towing refers to the weight you can pull behind the truck, while payload indicates the weight you can load onto the truck.
Maximum towing capacity on the Ram 2500 depends on a number of factors regarding the overall configuration and available options you choose. The biggest indicator of the kind of towing capacity you get is the engine, so your choice of engine is one of the first things to consider as you are putting together the right truck with everything you need. For example, if you choose the standard HEMI engine, then the Ram 2500 can handle up to 17,540 lbs of maximum towing when properly equipped. With the available Cummins diesel engine, on the other hand, you can get up to 20,000 lbs of maximum towing on the Ram 2500, which can make a difference when towing the biggest trailers.
In terms of payload, even more factors can impact the maximum amount of weight that you can load onto the 2022 Ram 2500, since every bit of weight you add onto the truck will detract from what you can pile onto it later. The engine still plays a big part in maximum payload, however, especially because the powerful turbo diesel weighs quite a lot more than the standard HEMI engine. With the Cummins diesel, the Ram 2500 can handle up to 3,160 lbs of maximum payload when properly equipped, while the standard HEMI engine lets you load up to 4,010 lbs of weight onto the Ram 2500.
When you are looking at a powerful work truck like the 2022 Ram 2500, then you might not think you should focus on technology and interior options. These are often seen as luxury features that do not add much to a powerful work truck. In reality, however, a lot of these things can make doing your job a lot easier; impressive navigation software can help you find a jobsite, plus other connectivity features let you stay in touch with coworkers or get the most from your laptop while on the job.
Some of the most impressive technology on the Ram 2500 is specifically there to help you get your job done, especially when towing a large trailer. For example, while a lot of trucks offer some kind of available 360-view technology to give you a virtual look at the area around your pickup, the Ram 2500 enhances this with a Trailer 360-degree Surround View camera that includes your trailer for easier maneuvering. The available digital rearview mirror offers a tow mode that lets you view a live feed from a trailer camera, giving you an unobstructed view of the area behind both your truck and trailer. Even the tire pressure monitoring system includes support for the tires on your trailer for safer towing.
Inside the Ram 2500, you will find a lot of impressive technology to help you get your job done, starting with an available 12-inch infotainment display that now comes with Ram’s latest Uconnect 5 software, which is faster and features more memory than previous years. This large screen makes it easy to keep track of navigation information, which updates quickly and helps you get to where you are going. There is even an available 17-speaker Harman Kardon sound system with active noise cancellation because not everything has to be about getting your job done; we all need to take a moment, sometimes, to enjoy a little music before getting back to work.
