absolutely | AUTO REVIEW  | By Steve Kursar –

2023 Ram Heavy-Duty.

The 2023 Ram lineup of both light-duty and heavy-duty trucks continue to impress with their capability and interiors. The Ram 1500 recently won the coveted Truck of Texas trophy as voted on by members of the Texas Auto Writers Association. Even the new 2023 Ram Heavy-Duty Rebel took home an award in the heavy-duty category.  These are notable accomplishments for trucks that battle for sales in a very competitive segment. It’s a win-win for every truck buyer.

2023 Ram 1500 TRX.

The Ram brand was born in 2010 when the trucks were spun off from Dodge.  Previously known for its lineup of sturdy, no frills trucks, the designers and engineers at Ram steadily created a series of pickups that continue to be highly capable but now also boast of interiors that rival those found in luxury vehicles. Making these trucks equally comfortable for date night as they are on any construction site.

The 2023 Ram 1500 debuts with a base MSRP of $37,090 and is powered by a 305 hp, 3.6 liter V6 engine. But, the real stars of the showroom are the high-end trims that garner all the attention.  The Limited trim is that near-luxury model which features a soft interior with all the tech that new truck buyers demand.  But, it’s the TRX trim that has everyone talking.  Engineered to be the quickest, fastest and most powerful mass-produced half-ton pickup truck in the world, the TRX has been rigorously tested to handle the most punishing conditions with extreme capability and durability.  Powered by a 702 hp, 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI V-8 engine, the TRX MSRP starts at $83,890.  It’s a truck that can handle anything you throw at it.

The Ram Heavy-Duty trucks are no longer just for working in the oil fields of West Texas. A base Ram 2500 carries an MSRP of $44,205 along with a 410 hp, 6.4 liter HEMI V8 engine.  New for 2023, Ram introduced the 2500 Heavy-Duty Rebel that offers truck owners a combination of off-road performance without sacrificing towing and payload capabilities. For buyers looking to use their Rebel to do a fair amount of towing, there’s also the option of getting the 370 hp, 6.7 liter Cummins turbo diesel I-6 engine that delivers 850 ft-lbs of torque.

The light-duty and heavy-duty Ram truck lineup for 2023 delivers all the capability, design and technology that you’ll want going into the New Year.
