January 7th, 2022 by

Automakers have been under siege due to semiconductor issues, as well as labor shortages, but the start of 2022 marks a new model year. Given that most automakers recently switched to 2022 models, Ram 1500 enthusiasts will be happy to learn that the 2022 Ram 1500 brings forth lots of exciting new features. 

New Ram 1500 Technology

Pickups were meant for towing and the 2022 Ram 1500 doesn’t disappoint with its new Trailer Hitch Light feature. The all-new lighting feature is part of the Trailer Tow Group. With four LED lights that illuminate the trailer hitch directly, making it easy for owners to easily hook up their trailer after a long day of boating. This feature also makes life easier for landscape and construction crews as they have to frequently pull a trailer as well. 

Uconnect 5 is also standard on the 2022 Ram 1500 Big Horn and above, giving the pickup an infotainment system that’s four times faster and comes with a 12-inch touchscreen display. Uconnect 5 is easy to personalize, allowing owners to put all of the important information at their fingertips. Ram also upgraded its air filtration system, dubbing it the Ram Clean Air System. Standard on all 2022 Ram 1500 pickups, the Ram Clean Air System eliminates up to 95 percent of air particulates, such as pollen and other allergens. 

Ram 1500 Limited 10th Anniversary Edition

This special edition Ram 1500 speaks for itself as it joined the lineup in a mesmerizing Blue shade. Luxury is the name of the game and the Ram 1500 Limited 10th Anniversary Edition doesn’t disappoint with its striking interior in Indigo Blue and Sea Salt quilted leather upholstery. This 2022 Ram 1500 Limited 10th Anniversary Edition comes with special badging and other interior trim fixings. 

2022 Ram 1500 Longhorn SouthFork

While the above-mentioned Ram 1500 Limited 10th Anniversary Edition applies to the 2021 model year, the Ram 1500 Longhorn SouthFork replaces it as a package. Buyers can enjoy a bed step, all-terrain tires, a spray-in bedliner, cargo tie-down hooks, LED box lights, and a cargo divider. Additionally, the SouthFork trim comes with a special Mountain Brown interior with bucket seats, special leather trim, and suede door boosters. Ram also added a multifunction tailgate.

Ram Truck is back with two GT trims that are all about performance. Both the GT Laramie and GT Rebel trims feature a performance hood and GT decals. Special cold air intakes boost the engine’s power, while the rest of the GT package is rounded out with aluminum paddle shifters, metal pedals, and flat-bottom steering wheels. Ram also added performance floor shifters to these two trims as well.

2022 Ram 1500 BackCountry

The 2022 Ram 1500 BackCountry is more of a package than a trim. Available on the Ram 1500 Big Horn and Lone Star trims with 5.7-liter V8 engines, this new package features everything a driver may need to get into the backcountry. The BackCountry package from Ram includes black two-tone exterior paint, Bed Utility Group, Off Road Group, black badging, headlights, exhaust, running boards and mirrors, a body-color grille surround, and a tonneau cover.
