Ram practices yearly updates, so it’s no wonder that the 2022 model has brought a couple of new versions, packed with a lot of exclusive features. However, the next year’s could come with even more new things. Allegedly, the 2023 Ram 1500 is about to receive a mid-cycle update, which will bring more updates than usual. At this point, the officials are still quiet about this update, so take the following updates with a reserve.
At this point, we can only speculate about the possible changes. We presume that the focus would be on aesthetics, considering that the current model would definitely use a couple of new styling details. On the other hand, the interior design probably won’t change, though there is always enough room for the new standard and available features. When it comes to powertrain, we don’t expect that the 2023 Ram 1500 could come with bigger changes.
2023 Ram 1500 Design
As we’ve just mentioned, there is a chance to see the 2023 Ram 1500 with a load of updates. This would be a mid-cycle refresh and most rumors suggest that the focus would be on aesthetics. The current model looks good but it would definitely use a few new details. This particularly refers to the front end, where we could see updates in terms of new headlights, new grille and similar things. The rest of the truck shouldn’t change too much, though there is always room for typical updates such as new color options, new wheels and similar things.
On the other hand, we don’t expect that the 2023 Ram 1500 could change too much mechanically. Simply, the current model already offers impressive driving characteristics, whether it’s about comfort or capability. Of course, you may count on Ram’s advanced suspension setup, which is adjustable in higher trim levels, which ensures superior ride quality, without sacrificing performance.
We don’t believe that the 2023 Ram 1500 could come with more important changes on the inside. Simply, the current model already features the nicest cabin in the segment, which combines attractive aesthetics with high-quality materials and great overall build quality. Of course, minor updates are possible, in terms of new color schemes and similar things.
On the other hand, we presume that the 2023 Ram 1500 will continue with familiar cab layouts in the offer, such as Regular Cab, Mega Cab, Crew Cab, as well as with familiar bed sizes. This model features one of the most spacious cabins in the segment, characterized by spacious and massive seats that ensure a pretty high level of comfort.
Trim Levels and Features
Ram introduces a new version here and there but the core of the offer remains the same. Therefore, we presume that the base trim level organization will remain the same. The offer will start with the good-old Tradesman, which is pretty much a bare-bones version of the truck, with steel wheels, manual accessories and similar things.
The rest of the lineup should remain the same as well. This means that the Big Horn should be the next in the line. Of course, we count on well-known Laramie and Longhorn. Finally, the offer will end with the Limited model, the most luxurious version of the pickup truck.
Of course, expect updated Rebel and Rebel TRX models, which come with unique styling details and a full load of off-road features.
2023 Ram 1500 Engines
The engine lineup shouldn’t change either. Therefore, the base version should continue with a good-old 3.6-liter V6, which puts out around 305 horsepower. The upgrade comes in the form of the well-known 5.7-liter HEMI V8, which features a max output of 395 horsepower and 410 pound-feet of torque. The diesel version will be offered too, with a familiar 3.0-liter turbodiesel V6, which puts out around 260 horsepower and 480 pound-feet of torque.
Of course, the Rebel TRX will continue with a monstrous 6.2-liter Supercharged V8, which puts out over 700 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque.
All engines come coupled with excellent 8-speed automatic transmission.
2023 Ram 1500 Release Date
It’s still early to speculate about the release date, but we presume that the 2023 Ram 1500 would hit the market sometime in the second half of 2022. More details should come in the future. Of course, Ford F-150 and Chevy Silverado will remain key competitors.
