Refreshed 2023 Ram 3500 Dually Spotted With New Hood And Mirrors

It appears the Ram division is focused on keeping its core lineup fresh, as the full size van and pickup segments continue to rake in profits for every brand and manufacturer that offers commercial vehicles. As Ford Authority recently outlined, the 2023 Ram ProMaster van model range is slated to receive a host of updates later this year. And now, ahead of an official reveal, it appears the Ram 3500 will get some new additions too, as our photographers spotted a sparsely camouflaged example running around with what appear to be a new hood and some new side mirrors.

The 2023 Ram 3500 dually spotted by our photographers clearly boasts a new or revised hood, judging by the special wrap, in addition to a new set of mirrors, which are covered with black cloth. Additionally, this particular truck appears to be a Night Edition model. Included with that package are items like black exterior badging, black headlamp bezels, a black grille, tow hooks, black wheel center hubs, and special trailer-tow mirrors, among other equipment.

This potential 2023 Ram refresh arrives after the 2022 received some substantial updates itself, including the all-new Uconnect 5 infotainment system and a new Trailer 360 View mode that gives owners a bird’s eye and 360 degree view of a connected trailer. Since this Ram dually featured the 6.7L Cummins turbo diesel, it boasted at least 370 horsepower and 850 pound-feet of torque if it was a standard output model or 420 horsepower and 1,075 pound-feet of torque if it had the high output configuration.

An updated 2023 Ram truck arriving soon after the 2022 enhancements is easier to understand when looking at sales numbers from the first quarter of this year. While the Ford F-Series is the clear segment leader, the Ram lineup is facing stiff competition from the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra, as both trucks outsold it by a decent margin through the first three months of 2022. Additionally, this fiercely contested segment will play host to the 2023 Ford Super Duty lineup soon, as the completely redesigned pickup range is expected to debut later this year. As Ford Authority recently reported, Super Duty prototypes continue to be spotted testing.
