What’s New for the 2022 Ram 1500?
The Ram 1500 has lots of exciting new updates for 2022, some of which will come standard on all trim levels, and some of which are entirely new models in and of themselves! One of the new features you’ll find across the board is a new standard air filtration system that will remove up to 95% of all particles such as dust, pollen, and bacteria. That means the air inside your cabin will always be crisp and clean, even while kicking up dust on the job site! Another new standard feature is the addition of tailgate lighting, so that you can clearly see your trailer hitch, day or night. If you’re looking for something entirely new, you’re in luck! The Ram 1500 lineup is welcoming new specialty editions of all your favorite trim levels, like the new Big Horn BackCountry Edition, which features off-road equipment like all-terrain tires and heavy-duty shocks, or the Limited 10th Anniversary Edition which has the same luxurious interior of the Limited, but with a new Blue Shade color option, custom graphics, and specialty badges inside and out.
How Powerful is the 2022 Ram 1500?
Not only does the Ram 1500 have a wealth of trim level options, but it also has a range of engines so that you can get the most out of whichever model you choose! First up, there’s a 3.6-liter V6 engine that incorporates a 48-volt eTorque mild-hybrid system for enhanced fuel efficiency. This powertrain is rated at 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque. There’s also a diesel option that amps up the torque to a whopping 480 lb-ft. This engine is the 3.0-liter Cummins turbodiesel V6, which is an available option. Under the hood of the Limited trim, you’ll find a potent 5.7-liter V8 engine, which is rated t 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque, and is available both with and without the eTorque mild-hybrid system, depending on your preferences. Last but certainly not least, the TRX trim is known for its robust 6.2-liter supercharged V8, the same engine that powers performance vehicles like the Dodge Challenger Hellcat. This engine creates an outstanding 702 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque! You can also rest assured that the 1500 has the muscle to get the job done, with a maximum payload capacity of 2,300 pounds, and a 12,750-pound maximum towing capacity when properly equipped.
High Tech Features of the 2022 Ram 1500
Part of what makes the Ram 1500 one of the most luxurious trucks in its class is the fact that it comes equipped with all the latest technology in terms of both safety, and entertainment. For the 2022 lineup, every trim level will feature the new Uconnect 5 system, with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. The system also allows for two devices to be connected simultaneously, and even offers up to five user profiles, so everyone can save their own preferences and have them at the ready. The standard screen size for the Uconnect 5 starts out at 8.4 inches, with an available 12-inch screen for a stunning, full-color view. Other tech features include an on-board Wi-Fi hotspot, a wireless charging pad, a fully digital rearview mirror, and even a color head-up display. When it comes to safety, you can find features such as a rear back-up camera, forward-collision warning, trailer-specific blind-spot monitoring, and a 360-degree surround-view camera.
