The new 2023 Ram 1500 is on the way, according to many reports. Unfortunately, we must wait at least one year for its debut. If you didn’t know, this famous pickup truck was redesigned last year, featuring a redefined look and plenty of new technology.
However, the new model will not bring anything revolutionary, but it should receive some upgrades here and there. On the other hand, we expect to see many upgrades in terms of technology. From some early reports, the upcoming pickup will keep the same engine as its predecessor, and it might finally introduce some of the new ones. Here’s is everything that we know about this popular pickup truck.
2023 Ram 1500 Redesign
The 2023 Ram 1500 is a pickup truck that looks fresh and modern. Last year’s model receives some upgrades, and the long-familiar crosshair grille is replaced with a narrower grille flanked by slim headlights. Again, there’s a choice of three types of headlights. The manufacturer has on offer halogen, LED, and LED with adaptive front-lighting. The tailgate has a lift assist on the back, and the RamBox bed storage offers a 115-volt outlet, which is pretty handy.
However, sportier styling can be found choosing the Ram 1500 TRX. This variant is eight inches wider than a standard Ram 1500. It also sports a unique front end, aluminum hood, LED lights on the hood scoop, plus 18-inch wheels. The suspension is also better, and the manufacturer used beefy Bilstein shock absorbers.
Cabin Features and Changes
Inside, the new 2023 Ram 2023 will probably gain much more quality materials and better technology. This pickup truck is very comfy, and it can fit five passengers. There are plenty of packages and optional amenities to choose. Generally speaking, each of Ram’s trim levels has a unique interior. The Crew Cab as favorite option is four inches longer than the Quad Cab. In addition, that means it has more rear legroom.
Whatever trim you choose, the cabin will be highlighted by a 12-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, air conditioning, cruise control, electronic parking brake, and manual tilt/telescoping steering wheel.
2023 Ram 1500 Powertrain Specs
At this moment, there is no information about the engine of the upcoming 2023 Ram 1500. Most likely that the new truck will keep the same two engine options. Some were suggesting that we could also see some of the new ones. However, the current entry-level model is using a classic 3.6-liter V6 that makes 305 horsepower. It’s a well-regarded unit that is also available under some of Chrysler/Jeep/Ram models.
The optional engine is more potent, and it consists of a 5.7-liter V8 making a forceful 395 horsepower. Both engines are using a 8-speed automatic transmission, with rear-wheel drive (RWD) as standard and all-wheel drive (AWD) as an option.
Release Date and Price
The rumors about the upcoming 2023 Ram 1500 are not settling down at all. Obviously, it seems that the manufacturer is working hard to bring a more competitive truck.
As you probably know, the Ram 1500 is one of the most selling models in its class, alongside Ford Ranger. Reportedly, we can expect the redesigned variant to debut sometime next year, starting at no less than $30,000.
