A Closer Look at the 2022 Ram 1500

October 8th, 2021 by

The 2022 Ram 1500 Crew cab is considered to be one of the most advanced and well-appointed pickup trucks on the market today. Models such as the Ford F150, Chevy Silverado, and GMC Sierra wage a battle against the Ram 1500, but when it comes to interiors none of those models can hold a candle to Ram’s masterpiece. That said, the Ram 1500 is available in either a Quad Cab or larger Crew Cab configuration. Buyers can choose between a 5-foot-7 or 6-foot-4 box, along with a variety of engines and powertrain configurations. Additionally, Ram Trucks offers over ten different trim packages, so the possibilities are endless. 

2022 Ram 1500 Engine Choices

Prospective buyers can choose from a standard 3.6-liter V6 engine, a 5.7-liter HEMI V8, a 3.0-liter turbodiesel, or the boisterous supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI V8 that powers the Ram 1500 TRX trim. While the standard V6 engine is paired with the eTorque mild-hybrid system, the V8 engines can be had with or without the feature. eTorque uses an electric motor to supplement the gas engine and improve overall fuel economy, smoothness and acceleration. 

2022 Ram 1500 Interior

On the inside, the 2022 Ram 1500 Crew Cab features quite a spacious interior. With four more inches than the Quad Cab configuration, this Ram 1500 provides plenty of room for the family and tons of flair. Ram ups the luxury with every trim, and the 10th Anniversary Limited Longhorn trim is an upscale Western vibe that features tan leather and wood grain accents throughout the cabin. The Limited trim offers buyers contrasting trim and subtle luxury leather features as well. No trim takes it as far as the TRX, with its sense of high-line performance accents, heated and ventilated seating, the largest Uconnect infotainment touchscreen (12”), and more. Regardless of trim, the controls on the Ram 1500 are well placed and easy to use. Rear seat passengers can ride in comfort thanks to the available reclining seats and additional rear legroom, while optional under-seat storage helps keep items throughout the cabin organized and secure. 

Ram 1500 Features & Tech

Loaded with technology from beginning to end, the Ram 1500 is what pickup trucks should aspire to be. To begin with, drivers can enjoy the available head-up display that allows them to keep their eyes on the road all while monitoring speed, gear, incoming calls, and even GPS directions are projected onto the windshield. Ram also offers a digital rearview mirror that goes the distance when there’s a full house of passengers. Instead of rear passengers being in view, the camera located on the tailgate will show a wide view of what’s behind the pickup in real time. The rearview cam mirror returns to function as a regular mirror with the simple flick of a switch. 

The latest Uconnect infotainment system is responsive and user-friendly, making it one of the most award-winning infotainment systems out there. The optional 12-inch display (that’s standard on the Ram 1500 TRX) features a customizable home screen, pinch and zoom technology, numerous profiles, and more. Apple CarPlay and Google Android Auto capabilities are standard. Ram also offers an optional 4G Wi-Fi hotspot for drivers who need to stay connected.
