New 2023 Dodge RAM 1500 Redesign
New 2023 Dodge RAM 1500 Redesign – Ram has some of the best-selling trucks on the market, but we can’t deny that the options are a bit limited. Truck enthusiasts looking for medium-sized trucks should look elsewhere. A few years ago, GM was the only automaker with a mid-ground pickup offering. But other companies like Ford and Ram have taken steps.
This year, the light-duty Ram 1500 Classic was released, a full-size Ram 1500 variant. It is currently available in three trim options and has a standard engine of 305 hp. Under the right conditions, it can reach 8,230 pounds, which is feasible for light trucks.

The 1500 Classic is available in three model classes: Tradesman, Express, and Warlock. Until now, Ram’s official position has been that there is nothing to say about potential 2021 model year trucks.
There will be 14 weeks of downtime, Bigland noted, adding that the Ram 1500 Classic will continue to be made there. He did not specify how long or when exactly Warren Truck would be brought back online. Further, how the abrupt closure of production at FCA factories across America will affect Ram Classic’s manufacturing strategy is unclear.
Unofficial sales reports claim that ram’s best-selling model, the newer 1500, has gone gangbusters until the last few days. New to the 2019 model year and nine inches longer than the 1500 Classic, it retains steel construction, especially even though the frame is a new design. FCA US says that 98 percent of these chassis is built from high-strength steel.
2023 Dodge RAM 1500 Powertrain
In a change to the powertrain, the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 and 5.7-liter Hemi V8 evolved into a 48V lightweight hybrid to improve fuel economy.
Added torque during takeoff and regenerative braking is part of the FCA term ‘torque’ and there is a belt-powered motor generator powered by lithium-ion nickel manganese cobalt-graphite batteries. The 12V lead-acid battery draws its power through the converter.
Production of V8 trucks began in January 2018 and vehicles are on U.S. dealers starting in March 2018. V6 was added in August 2018.
Compared to the DS Ram 1500 series, the average weight dropped by 102 kg. Some of these are due to the aluminum used for tailgates, engine mounts, front axle centers, front suspension, transmission cross members, and electric power-steering system gears.
The new 3.0-liter V6 EcoDiesel for the 2020 model year, rated at 260hp (264PS) and 480 lb-ft (650Nm). The machine is supplied by the Ferrara FCA power plant in Italy.
2023 Dodge RAM 1500 Engine
1500 could be one of the vehicles to be powered by the GME-T6. Fiat Chrysler’s ‘Global Medium Engine Turbo-6’ is said to be getting closer to production. The name Pentastar is likely to be used again and rumors claim that even the most powerful variants of these six straight will have a capacity below 3,000cc.
DT series trucks should get a small refresh for the 2021 model year in an effort to limit the impact of the new Ford F-150. As per the Rebel TRX concept from 2016, Ram’s high-performance trucks must pack a supercharged 6.2-liter Hellcat V8 as well as lifted suspension and chunky off-road tires.
Even if the horsepower 707 engine of the Dodge Challenger decays, this truck should make the F-150 Raptor look a little less in the muscle department.
There may be a second facelift for the 2023 model year, with PHEV and EV rumored to also appear at the same time. His successor must be announced in cy2025 or 2026, where DT will be the Ram 1500 Classic.
The brand’s latest models, or rather models, are the HD 2500 and HD 3500 trucks, which are made in Mexico at Saltillo Truck, respectively. This full-size pick-up alone is expected to generate a significant percentage of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles’ global profits.
Fresh for the 2019 North American model year, heavy duties’ world debut took place at the Detroit car show last year. For the 2020 model year, the HD 2500 and HD 3500 have some minor changes.
One difference in the powertrain between the two is the engine that produces more than 1,000 pound-feet of torque (1356Nm). That’s the output of the 6.7-liter ‘High Output Turbo Diesel’ 400 engine uniquely provided as an option for the HD 3500. Torque exceeds Cummins’ previous diesel by 70 lb-ft.
Unlike the previous form, this one has blocks made of graphite iron compacted rather than cast iron. There are also versions with lower output: 370 horsepower @ 2800 rpm and 850 lb.-ft. Torque.
Heavy Duty trucks will most likely get equipment and other tweaks for the 2022 model year so they are ready for the new equivalent of Ford. Facelifts should come for MY2023 and then a new generation in CY2026.
