    If you need a truck for work or your personal uses, then most trucks can handle your routine tasks. These large and midsize pickups can haul most trailers and carry your average payloads. However, if you need something that is more powerful, you’re going to need a heavy-duty truck like the 2022 Ram 3500. Heavy-duty trucks are designed for towing the biggest trailers and carrying the heaviest payloads, giving you the performance you need in a powerful model.

    The 2022 Ram 3500 represents the most technologically advanced heavy-duty truck in the Ram lineup, utilizing technology to make the truck safer and perform better. Ram offers this truck with a choice of three different engines, two different cargo boxes, three different cab configurations, two different drivetrains, and five different trim levels. This gives you the ability to design a 2022 Ram 3500 that serves all your purposes while meeting all your needs. The trims range from the base model Tradesman to the rugged Big Horn, the stylish Laramie, the rough and ready Limited Longhorn, and the top-of-the-line Limited.

    By offering the 2022 Ram 3500 in three different cab designs, Ram gives drivers like you the ability to choose a style that fits your needs. If you are looking to maximize the payload and towing abilities on your Ram 3500 and only need room for one or two passengers, then you can choose a model with a Regular Cab, which has one row of seats. If you need more room, a four-door, two-row Crew Cab may be your best bet, with room for up to 6 passengers. Now, if you want to give your rear row passengers more room, you can choose a Ram 3500 with a Mega Cab, with over 43 inches of legroom in the back. Giving drivers like you choices is what the 2022 Ram 3500 is all about and also what sets it apart from all those other heavy-duty trucks on the road today.

    Your Options: Engines

    A large truck like the 2022 Ram 3500 needs a big engine to power it, and Ram doesn’t disappoint, giving you a choice of three truly powerful powertrains. The standard engine on the 2022 Ram 3500 is a 6.4-liter HEMI “Apache” V-8. This gas engine features a deep-skirt cast-iron engine block with aluminum cylinder heads. It utilizes variable valve timing to maximize engine efficiency. This uses cylinder deactivation as part of its Fuel Saver Technology. The V-8 engine also features sequential multiport electronic fuel injection to produce 410 horsepower and 429 lb-ft of torque. That is more horsepower than any other gas engine in the Ram 3500’s vehicle class.

    Ram also offers two diesel engine options on the 2022 Ram 3500. The first is a 6.7-liter Cummins Turbo Diesel I-6. This is a compacted graphite iron engine block with a cast-iron head, with a dual overhead camshaft design (DOHC) providing 24 valves for its 6 cylinders. The fuel is delivered to this turbo-diesel through an electronic high-pressure common rail system, making this engine capable of producing 370 horsepower and 850 lb-ft of torque.

    For those who want even more power, you can opt for a 6.7-liter Cummins Turbo Diesel I-6. This is like the other turbo diesel, except on steroids. It also has a compacted graphite iron engine block and cast-iron head and a DOHC design. Just like the other turbo-diesel, it uses electronic high-pressure common-rail fuel injection. However, this engine is capable of producing 420 horsepower and an insane 1,075 lb-ft of torque. That is some serious power for the 2022 Ram 3500 and represents the most torque for any truck in its vehicle class.

    Your Options: Transmissions

    Ram has decided to pair each of its three engines on the 2022 Ram 3500 with a specific transmission. The 6.4-liter HEMI “Apache” V-8 comes equipped with an 8-speed automatic transmission. This features an adaptive electronic control that lets you switch between automatic and Electronic Range Select manual, giving you greater control over your Ram 3500 truck. There is also a torque converter lock with turbine torsional damper for low lock-up speeds in all eight gears. The Ram 3500 with the two Cummins Turbo Diesel engines feature a 6-speed automatic transmission. This has full electronic control with an electronically controlled converter clutch to boost engine torque.

    Your Options: Drivetrains

    The 2022 Ram 3500 comes with your choice of 4x2 or 4x4 systems. Opting for a 4x2 drivetrain will give you exceptional towing capability, while the 4x4 system improves the traction on the Ram 3500. 4x4 models have a transfer case that allows you to shift between four-wheel drive and two-wheel drive, so you can get improved road performance on the highway. Also, 4x4 models of the Ram 3500 have a slightly higher ground clearance with sharper approach, ramp breakover, and departure angles.

    For a truck of its size and power, the 2022 Ram 3500 handles surprisingly well. This is due in part to hydraulic assist steering. As a result, the turning diameter on this truck is 45.4 feet, giving it solid cornering for a heavy-duty pickup. The ride is smooth on the Ram 3500 due to the use of a three-link front suspension with track bar, coil springs, solid axle, a stabilizer bar, and a two-stage longitudinal leaf rear suspension with a solid axle. While you’ll know you’re in a truck with the 2022 Ram 3500, you and your passengers will feel like you’re on a really pleasant ride.

  • Capability

    One of the biggest reasons why people choose to drive a heavy-duty truck is the ability to tow heavy trailers and carry massive payloads. In this regard, the 2022 Ram 3500 does not disappoint. No matter which of the three engines you choose, you will be able to carry plenty of cargo while towing those big trailers, such as a mobile home, a passenger boat, or heavy machinery.

    The Best Towing

    Among the three different powertrain options among the 2022 Ram 3500, the true towing master is the one with the 6.7-liter Cummins High Output Turbo Diesel I-6. This engine, with its amazing 1,075 lb-ft of torque, gives your truck the strength to tow up to 37,090 pounds. This is truly massive power.

    The other two powertrains also provide solid towing capability. The Ram 3500 with the standard 6.4-liter HEMI “Apache” V-8 gives you the power to tow up to 18,210 pounds. This is exceeded by the model with the 6.7-liter Cummins Turbo Diesel I-6, which gives you the ability to tow up to 22,670 pounds.

    No matter which engine you choose, you should keep in mind that the towing capacity is dependent upon your choice of drivetrain and cab design on your Ram 3500. For example, choosing to go with a 4x2 drivetrain will reduce gross vehicle weight, improving your towing capability. In addition, adding available gear like a fifth wheel or a gooseneck trailer hitch will also improve the trailering rating on your 2022 Ram 3500.

    The Best Payload

    The 2022 Ram 3500 is built to handle your heaviest loads. You can choose between two easily accessible payload boxes. The standard box measures 6’4” and provides you with 57.5 cubic feet of cargo volume. If you need more room for your things, you can choose the 8’ long box with 74.7 cubic feet of cargo space. The 2022 Ram 3500 can carry up to 7,680 pounds of cargo when equipped with the standard 6.4-liter HEMI V-8 gas engine. Choosing either of the optional turbo-diesel engines will reduce this capacity by a slight amount.

  • Technology

    Today’s pickup trucks feature technological equipment that makes them safer and more fun to drive than ever. Ram has seen to it to make the 2022 Ram 3500 one of the most technologically advanced heavy-duty trucks available today.

    Your Infotainment System

    Every 2022 Ram 3500 features the Uconnect 5 system. This will make it easier for you and your passengers to stay connected no matter where your truck takes you. This provides you with an 8.4-inch color touchscreen that features Bluetooth connectivity, Wi-Fi capability, a 6-speaker audio system, and SiriusXM radio. Ram also offers an available Uconnect 5C NAV system on the 2022 Ram 3500 that adds a built-in navigation system and a 10-speaker premium audio system. For the ultimate infotainment experience, Ram offers an available Uconnect 5 with a 12-inch touchscreen that is an industry leader. This comes with a 750-watt, 17-speaker Harmon Kardon sound system that must be heard to be believed. You will be cruising in style if you opt for this on your 2022 Ram 3500.

    Trailer Assistance

    Once upon a time, you were fortunate if your heavy-duty truck had a simple rearview camera. Fortunately, for those who put a premium on safe trailering, those days are long gone. Today, every 2022 Ram 3500 features a ParkView rear backup camera that has dynamic guidelines and a zoom feature, which can be easily accessed on your Uconnect 5 touchscreen.

    Ram has come out with some exceptional technology that surpasses the standard rear camera. There is an available Trailer 360 view camera that consists of four cameras giving you a full view of the space around your trailer, making it safer and easier than ever to change lanes while towing. The Cargo View camera will help you keep an eye on your payload so you can be sure everything has been tied down nicely. There is also an available Surround View camera that will operate with or without your trailer, so you can get a full view around your Ram 3500 even if the cargo is stacked high in your payload bed.

    Safety Features

    The 2022 Ram 3500 provides many available active driver assistance features that will improve your driving experience while helping keep your passengers safe. The forward collision mitigation system features automatic emergency braking. If the system detects an imminent frontal collision, it will engage the emergency brakes while warning you of an impending crash. This will help you avoid or mitigate the damage from a collision. The blind-spot monitoring system will help you change lanes by alerting you if there is another vehicle in your blind spot. This will even work if you are towing a trailer, letting you know if you have clearance before making a lane change. Finally, lane keep assist will prevent you from drifting out of your lane. If the system detects you are crossing a line unintentionally, it will sound an alert and use slight steering adjustments to get you and your Ram 3500 back on the straight and narrow.
