2023 Ram 2500 – Engine, Transmission, and Performance in Kimberley

March 24,2023

There are three available engines. All variants come standard with a 410-horsepower, 6.4-liter V-8 engine that generates 429 pound-feet torque. It has a superb eight-speed automatic transmission. This is the sole transmission and engine available for the strictly four-wheel-drive Power Wagon. But, every other model is also available with either rear- or four-wheel drive, along with a Cummins inline-six 6.7-liter diesel engine.
There are two diesel variants available. The first engine produces 850 lb-ft of torque and 370 horsepower, and is available in 2500 and 3500 versions. The 400-horsepower high-output variant, exclusive to the 3500, produces an astounding 1075 pound-feet torque. Both engines are supported by an automatic, six-speed transmission, although its diesel rivals all feature more advanced 10-speed transmissions.
The Cummins engine, which weighs 1060 pounds, is 490 pounds heavier than the V-8 engine, so diesel vehicles are not as maneuverable or speedy in town, but they can carry and pull substantially more weight. Ram has conducted an outstanding job improving the Cummins engine. Despite making slightly more noise than its V-8 counterpart, it is no longer the savage beast it used to be.
