2023 Ram Trim Levels

The new 2023 Ram 1500 comes in seven different trims, each with its own special set of features and benefits. To help you choose the right one, here's a breakdown of each trim.

2023 Ram 1500 Tradesman/ Tradesman HFE

The Tradesman is the base model of the Ram 1500 and offers an impressive set of features for an entry-level price point.

Available with either a 260-hp 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 or a 5.7-liter eTorque Hemi V8, which produces a chunky 395 hp, the Tradesman comes with standard 18-inch steel wheel, a 5.0-inch Uconnect infotainment system, and rearview camera, heated power side mirrors, and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto capabilities

Designed with workmen in mind, the Tradesman also comes with a few additional features that make it a great choice for tougher jobs, such as a vaulted cargo bed, rear under-seat storage compartment, tow hooks, and a trailer sway control system.

If you're looking for something a little more slimmed down, the Tradesman HFE only has the option for a 3.0-liter EcoDiesel engine, but comes with all the features of the base model, plus 20-inch chrome wheels, cloth high-back bucket seats, and full carpeting.

Standout Features:

Standout Features:

  • Fully customizable - The Big Horn and Lone Star models offer a wide range of customization options, from interior detailing to different engines and drive trains.

2023 Ram 1500 Specs
