The current generation may look fresh in the eyes of most drivers but FCA wants to cement and even improve the position of one of its most important models. Of course, we are talking about the RAM 1500, which could easily come with some notable novelties for the next year, despite that the current generation has been around for a very short period. At this point, the exact details are still unavailable, but some sources suggest even some styling changes. Furthermore, we might see some revisions in terms of trim levels and standard equipment. On the other side, the engine lineup, as well as the interior, will probably remain untouched. The 2022 RAM 1500 may get a couple of novelties. Still, the overall design will certainly remain the same.
This means you may count on one of the best full-size pickup trucks on the market. It offers exceptional performances and working capabilities, but also superior ride quality and by far the finest cabin among pickups. We expect it will hit the market sometime in the last quarter of 2021.
2022 RAM 1500 Redesign
While some novelties are certainly about to come in the 2022 RAM 1500, the overall layout will certainly remain the same. This is still a quite fresh model. It debuted just a few years ago and which is still superior compared to most rivals. While a typical pickup truck in this segment is capable, this one is also extremely comfortable. That’s what sets apart RAM from the rest of the crowd. Simply, this truck comes with air suspension on the rear end, which is something you won’t get in other pickup trucks.
The styling is also pretty impressive and this pickup truck still looks very fresh. Still, there is a chance to see a couple of aesthetical revisions on the front end, though these changes will probably be minor and barely notable.
While the exterior may come with some changes, the 2022 RAM 1500 interior will most likely remain the same. Simply, the current model already features by far the finest cabin in the class. It is characterized not just by attractive aesthetics, by also by premium-grade materials. In addition, there is a full load of standard and available tech goodies, which makes everything look even more opulent. Furthermore, the sound insulation is pretty amazing and that definitely has a big impact on the ride quality and comfort.
For the 2022 RAM 1500, the best we could see are some new color schemes and maybe some new materials in certain trim levels. Other than that, things will remain pretty much the same. Of course, we will probably see a little bit longer list of standard equipment but we will get on them in a moment.
As we’ve just mentioned, we expect that the 2022 RAM 1500 will come with a little bit longer list of standard features. The trim level organization will probably remain the same, but each version will probably come with a couple of novelties. Still, keep in mind that the current model already comes with a long list of standard and available features. All models come standard with a 5-inch touch screen, Bluetooth, three USB ports, six speakers, a Wi-Fi hot spot, push-button start, and a rearview camera. In higher trims, you can also get goodies like 8.4-inch or 12.0-inch touchscreens, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, navigation, additional USB ports, wireless device charging, satellite radio, HD Radio, a 19-speaker Harman Kardon audio system, two 115-volt household-style power outlets, dual-zone automatic climate control, remote start etc.
When it comes to safety, there are things like forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, automatic high-beam headlights, rain-sensing windshield wipers, a surround-view parking camera system, front and rear parking sensors. However, pretty much all of them are optional.
2022 RAM 1500 Engines
The engine lineup will certainly remain the same. Therefore, base models will carry on with a 3.6-liter V6, which puts out around 305 horsepower. There is also a well-known 5.7-liter HEMI V8 with around 395 horsepower, which is also available with a mild-hybrid eTorque system. A diesel version comes with a 3.0-liter V6 engine and 260 horsepower and 480 pound-feet of torque. Finally, there is the new Rebel TRX model, equipped with a monstrous 6.2-liter V8 that puts out around 702 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque.
All engines come in pair with 8-speed automatic transmission.
2022 RAM 1500 Release Date and Price
Despite the potential novelties, we expect to see 2022 RAM 1500 sometime in the last quarter of 2021. When it comes to the price, base models should go around 34.000 dollars. Of course, key competitors are models like Ford F-150, Chevy Silverado 1500, Toyota Tundra etc.
