The 2023 Ram 2500 and 3500 Heavy-Duty models are expected to gain new high-tech towing mirrors. The updated mirrors have already been spotted on two prototype models. They incorporate tons of features into a smaller package. 

Both manual- and power-extending options are in the works. They may include power-adjustable heated glass, spotter glass, integrated turn signals, LED puddle lights, blind-spot indicators, forward and rear-facing spotlights, 360-degree cameras, and new tow cameras.
