What Is the 2022 Ram 1500?
The Ram 1500 is a full-size pickup truck with room for up to six and a wide lineup of trim levels. It’s targeted at rivals like the Ford F-150, Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and Toyota Tundra. The Ram separates itself from the competition with an interior in higher trims that wouldn’t look out of place in a luxury vehicle.

A mild-hybrid V-6 drivetrain is standard, but a turbo-diesel V-6 and a selection of V-8 engines, including a 702-hp, supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 in the TRX trim, are also offered. All engines come with an eight-speed automatic transmission, and rear- and four-wheel-drive models are available.

What’s New on the 2022 Ram 1500?
New Ram 1500 variants include a Limited 10th Anniversary Edition as well as Longhorn SouthFork, Laramie G/T, Rebel G/T and BackCountry models. A new cabin air filtration system is standard, and Big Horn and higher trims get the Uconnect 5 multimedia system.

Should I Buy the 2022 Ram 1500?
The Ram 1500 proves that a modern full-size pickup can be anything from a no-frills workhorse to a luxury-laden palace — and even a performance beast in the form of the 702-hp TRX. The truck’s high-end trim levels are pricey, though the same is true of this truck’s key rivals. Less expensive trims still deliver a great blend of utility, power, convenience features and user-friendly controls.
