Canada: 2023 Ram 2500 & 3500 Heavy Duty Fact Sheet

Windsor, Ontario September 1, 2022 - The Ram Heavy Duty is the no-compromise benchmark for durability, extreme performance, comfort, luxury materials, innovation and technology extending well past any competitive offerings. The most powerful, most capable pickup in the segment offers a towing capacity of up to 16,824 kilograms (37,090 pounds) and a payload capacity of 3,447 kilograms (7,680 pounds). Ram was the first to achieve the 1,000 lb.-ft. of torque milestone with the Cummins I-6 Turbo Diesel, now rated at a best-in-class 1,075 lb.-ft. of torque. Class-leading ride and handling is accomplished via a class-exclusive link-coil rear (2500) suspension system with optional rear air suspension (2500 and 3500). The Ram Heavy Duty relentlessly gives maximum effort with the segment’s most capability, refinement and operator comfort features.

With a full lineup of trucks, the Ram 1500, 2500/3500 Heavy Duty, 3500/4500/5500 Chassis Cab, ProMaster and ProMaster City, the Ram brand builds trucks that get the hard work done and families where they need to go.

Ram is the number one brand in new vehicle quality and is the only truck-exclusive brand to ever finish first in J.D.
