2022 Ram 2500 Diesel Specs
If you need a large, strong truck with durability and power, this Ram Diesel truck is tough to beat. Big power is found in a big truck, when that truck is the Ram 2500 HD Crew Cab, powered by a Cummins Diesel Engine.
This Ram truck uses the 6.7-liter Cummins diesel turbocharged straight-6 paired with the Cummins 6-speed automatic transmission.

Both engines are backed up with six-speed automatics, while diesel competitors in the Ram 2500 and 3500 are both equipped with more up-to-date 10-speeds. There is the standard 6.4-liter gas-powered V8 that has 429 pound-feet of torque and 410 horsepower. The engine also produces 429 lb-ft of torque, allowing the Ram 2500 to tow up to 17,540 pounds.

Most Ram HD family buyers are willing to pay the premium for a diesel, but the standard 6.4-liter gasoline engine is more than competent, even in 3500 form.
