The 2025 Ram 2500/3500 Heavy Duty is undergoing a modest update to stay relevant in the competitive pickup truck market. Spy shots reveal minor design changes, including a new grille design, front headlamps, updated front bumper, and taillights, in line with the 2025 Ram 1500 updates. However, the Heavy Duty cabs retain their fourth-generation design, disappointing those hoping for a fifth-generation update.

Significant changes are expected beneath the surface. Sources suggest that the new Heavy Duty diesel trucks will feature a standard ZF-sourced 8-speed PowerLine® transmission. This upgrade promises improved fuel economy, smoother shifting, and enhanced towing capabilities, addressing concerns about the current 68RFE transmission. Additionally, for those preferring gasoline engines, the 6.4-liter HEMI® V8 will return with minor updates to meet emissions requirements, paired with a ZF-sourced 8-speed automatic transmission.

Production of the updated 2025 Ram Heavy Duty lineup, including the 2500 Rebel Crew Cab 4×4, is slated to begin later this year at the Saltillo Truck Assembly Plant in Mexico. While design changes may not be groundbreaking, the focus on improved performance and efficiency underscores Ram’s commitment to meeting the evolving needs of truck enthusiasts.
