What’s Under the Hood of the 2022 Ram 1500?
The Ram 1500 has always been known for its powerful engine options, and all of your favorite engines return in 2022. Standard on most trims is a 3.6-liter V6 that pumps out an efficient 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque. If you want something a little more powerful, the Ram 1500 gives you the option of a 5.7-liter V8 that pumps out a massive 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque. Standard on the V6 and optional of the V8 is an eTorque system that helps with the fuel economy and improves the engine stop and start system. The eTorque uses a 48-volt battery to make all of this possible. If you’re wondering if the Ram 1500 has a diesel engine, wonder no more! Drivers have the option of a 3.0-liter turbodiesel V6 which pumps out 260 horsepower and 480 lb-ft of torque. The last engine is available for the unique TRX trim, and it’s a powerful supercharged 6.2-liter V8 that produces a pavement-pounding 702 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. These fantastic engines pair with an eight-speed automatic transmission, and if you are looking for some supreme towing power, the Ram 1500 can haul up to 12,750 pounds with a payload capacity of 2,300 pounds.
Outstanding Tech Features for the Ram 1500
With the Ram 1500, you expect a certain amount of tech, and the 2022 version certainly doesn’t disappoint. Starting with the Big Horn, the Ram 1500 comes with the latest version of a Uconnect system which is four times as fast and can hold three times as much memory. In addition, this fancy system includes a Wi-Fi hotspot and tow-specific navigation. All of this is amazing on the 12-inch touchscreen, which has easy-to-use buttons and intuitive controls that allow drivers to control things such as dual-zone climate control easily. If you go with one of the higher trims, you also have access to the Trailer Tow Group that comes with some advanced features such as LED lights that illuminate directly above the cabin and allows you to tow easier in the middle of the night and comes with an electronic trailer reverse steering control system that can control all of the Ram 1500 steering inputs.
Spectacular Features for the 2022 Ram 1500
The 2022 Ram 1500 comes with six available trim levels, and there is a myriad of features available on each. Starting things off is the Tradesman, which comes standard with 18-inch wheels, a 23-gallon gas tank, active grille shutters, coil-spring suspension, and trailer-sway control. Also coming standard are heated seats and power-adjustable side mirrors. This year, the Ram 1500 comes with a ton of special editions. The one we are most excited about is the Limited tenth-anniversary edition. It has 22-inch alloy wheels, quilted leather upholstery, suede headliner, jeweled shifter knob, and a 19-speaker audio system. One of the best things about the 2022 Ram 1500 is the Clean Air System that comes standard on every trim level. It cleans out the cabin of 95% of its harmful particles, making for one of the cleanest cabins ever assembled.
