Launched for the light-duty niche in the United States, the 2022 RAM 1500 offers four engines and several other advanced mechanical features. Engineered for the heavy-duty sector, the 2022 RAM 2500 offers two options under the hood. The RAM HD model has significantly higher towing and hauling capacities.
The 2022 RAM 1500 extracts 305 horsepower from the proprietary Pentastar engine block. You can tow slightly over 7,700 pounds with this V-6 powertrain. This light-duty truck taps into an additional 90 hp from the HEMI engine. You could tow 12,750 pounds with this V-8 powerhouse. Delivering instantaneous torque production, the eTorque technology is optional for both engines on this full-size RAM model. Towing nearly 12,600 pounds, the EcoDiesel engine is another mechanical wonder that’s optional for this vehicle. This turbocharged, diesel-consuming powertrain also yields 480 pound-feet of torque. Tuned for off-roading and closed-course racing, the supercharged HEMI engine propels the TRX model. Also based on the HEMI design, this exclusive propulsion system boasts an industry-leading rating of 702 hp. Standard on the 2022 RAM 2500, the 6.4-L engine appropriately runs on the HEMI engine. This eight-cylinder powerplant whips out 410 net hp. You can tow slightly more than 17,500 pounds with this powerful gas engine. Twisting out 850 lb-ft, the Cummins engine is engineered for taking on more demanding tasks. This turbocharged, inline-six, diesel-burning powerhouse boasts a 20,000-lb trailering rating. Additionally, both RAM pickup trucks offer an air suspension system with multiple settings.
Designed for work-oriented productivity, the RamBox is one of the most impressive amenities available for the 2022 RAM 1500 and RAM 2500. Small bags, tools, cables, and other important items could be locked inside the dual storage bins on these pickup trucks. Protected by a tight-sealing cover, a 115-V outlet is accessible in one of the bins. Both RAM models have LED lighting for various points on the bed. You’ll get unprecedented versatility from the RAM 1500’s Multi-Function Tailgate, which swivels in a horizontal path and folds flat as necessary. The patented Tailgate Assist design emphasizes this light-duty pickup truck’s versatile and work-friendly nature. Similarly, the heavy-duty trim offers an updated tailgate with dampers and struts for enhanced support.
Stellantis unveils the Uconnect 5 technology on the 2022 RAM models that wear the 1500 and 2500 badges. This all-new multimedia center is now available with a portrait-type, 12-inch touch screen. SiriusXM Guardian is perhaps one of the most important services in the infotainment system. Both pickup trucks offer trial plans to SiriusXM Satellite Radio. Up to 19 premium speakers from Harman Kardon are available for the light-duty model. Also made by this iconic brand, 17 speakers are optional on the heavy-duty trim.
