Without a doubt, the RAM 1500 is one of the most iconic and recognizable pickup trucks of all time. Tracing its roots back to 1980, it has long been one of the “big three” in American pickups, competing head to head with industry giants since its inception. If you’re in the market for a full-size pickup truck here in Topeka, KS, the updated 2022 RAM 1500 should definitely be near the top of your prospects list.
For the 2022 model year, plenty of updates have been made to enhance the truck’s fifth generation even further, despite the fact that it only just kicked off in 2019. Many of the changes revolve around available trim levels, but perhaps the most notable update comes in the form of the all-new Uconnect 5 system that comes standard on Big Horn models and above.
The new Uconnect 5 system operates faster and provides more memory than previous iterations. Other exciting updates include standardizing the RAM Clean Air System across all models, leading to the cleanest cabin air that has ever been provided within a RAM pickup truck. The Trailer Tow Group now includes a Trailer Hitch Light that consists of four LED lights just above the hitch. Plus, a new exterior color option called Harvest Sunrise is available on certain trims.
Speaking of “certain trims,” we thought it’d be a good idea to go ahead and highlight the different available trim levels for 2022. The 2022 RAM 1500 is available in Limited, Limited Longhorn, Rebel, Laramie, Big Horn and Tradesman. A few packages and configurations are available as well, of course, including Limited 10th Anniversary Edition, BackCountry Edition, G/T Edition, and so forth. Some of these are only available on certain trim levels and configurations.
These figures will naturally be different depending on your trim level, configuration, powertrain, cab style and so on. However, there are maximum numbers for both of these fields, which we think you’ll be pretty interested in. When powered by the 5.7L HEMI V8 engine that features eTorque, the RAM 1500 is able to tow up to a maximum of 12,750 pounds behind its bed. Likewise, the truck offers a maximum payload of up to 2,300 lbs. Needless to say, this pickup truck is capable!
