How Is Ram Upgrading the Tech in Their 2023 Heavy-Duty Truck Lineup?

The 2023 versions of the Ram heavy-duty trucks might not be brand new, but they are playing a much sweeter song than before. These trucks receive some tech upgrades to bring us more of the features we want in a world where everything has become digitized. Could these upgrades make it to the new Ram HD you drive? Maybe.

The entire line of Ram HD trucks now receives a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster. This feature is optional across the range and standard on higher trims. It’s listed as part of the Laramie Level 2 Equipment Group. If you opt for this group, you’ll also receive:

  • Wireless device charging
  • Heated second-row seats
  • 17-speaker Harman Kardon audio system

See everything with the new mirrors of your Ram truck

Digital rearview mirrors aren’t anything new and can be extremely useful when you’ve got a load of materials blocking your view. The new 2023 Ram heavy-duty trucks receive a digital rearview mirror with side camera integration. This allows you to simultaneously see both sides and behind your truck, giving you a clear picture of where your views might otherwise be obstructed.

Ram moves Trailer Reverse Steering Control to the HD trucks

The Trailer Reverse Steering Control feature first showed up in the 2021 Ram 1500, but now it’s going upward. The 2023 Ram heavy-duty truck lineup receives this feature to make parking a trailer much easier in these big trucks. This addition makes perfect sense since heavy-duty pickups are used more often for trailering.

New telescoping mirrors add to the confidence you’ll have while towing

The Ram HD trucks for 2023 are equipped with the latest trailer tow mirrors that offer telescoping capabilities. This makes it much easier to see around the trailer or identify potential obstacles that you’ll want to avoid while pulling a boat or putting it in the water.

What else does the new 2023 Ram heavy-duty truck lineup receive?

The Ram HD Laramie and Limited trims receive the option of a new Mopar sport performance hood which looks incredible on these trucks. The lineup of Ram HD trucks also enjoyed an upgraded camper system, a new Trailer Tow app, multiple view modes, a behind-trailer view, and blind-spot views. These upgrades allow you to pull a trailer like it’s your job, mostly because it probably is.

Have the trims changed for the 2023 Ram HD trucks?

No, the trim lineup is the same as it was for 2022. This means you’ll find the following Ram trims when shopping for a big and strong truck:

  • Tradesman
  • Big Horn/Lone Star
  • Power Wagon
  • Laramie
  • Laramie Longhorn
  • Limited

Do the new tech upgrades really improve the Ram HD lineup?

Yes, these improvements add easier views for you while towing a trailer. Pulling a heavy load in a trailer is one of the most challenging activities we can encounter while driving big trucks. With the additional features in the 2023 Ram heavy-duty truck lineup, you’ll see everything you need to and have more control when pulling, parking, or moving a trailer.
