What to Know About the All-New 2022 Ram 1500

Friday, October 8th, 2021

Ram has updated the 2022 Ram 1500 to be more reliable, more comfortable, and depending on the trim, much more adaptable. The 2022 Ram 1500 is a full-sized pickup capable of getting the job done. If towing or hauling is required, the Ram 1500 is a great choice. For off-roading, the Ram 1500’s BackCountry trim makes for an excellent selection. If performance is preferred, the Ram 1500 features a G/T package that guarantees powerful performance. Truly the Ram 1500 offers versatility unlike any other pickup. Ram has made sure to update its iconic pickup for the 2022 model year with features, upgrades, and interior aesthetics that make it an optimal choice for pickup fans. Ram owners will enjoy comfort and luxury blended into a powerful beast of a pickup. We’ll dive in deeper to see just what Ram owners can expect for the 2022 Ram 1500.

The 2022 Ram 1500 is Versatile

The standard 2022 Ram 1500 comes equipped with a 3.6L V6 engine capable of 305 horsepower. Ram did not update the engine to be more powerful for 2022, but this is where the versatility of the Ram 1500 comes into play. Ram offers several trims and package upgrades that allow Ram owners to customize their pickup how they want. For more power and performance, the Ram G/T sport package for the Laramie and Rebel trims does more than enough. This package includes a unique exhaust system, paddle shifters, and cold-air intake. It features a larger V8 engine, air suspension, and front and rear camera sensors. With this sports package, Ram 1500 owners can push their pickup to peak performance.

Another trim that expands the Ram 1500’s versatility is the BackCountry edition. This trim reinforces off-road capabilities as it makes use of a 4×4 Off-Road Group Package. This package includes tow hooks, skid plates, off-road-tuned shocks, hill descent control, all-terrain tires, and a rear electronic locking differential. The BackCountry Ram 1500 also comes equipped with either a 5.7L Hemi V-8 engine or a 5.7L Hemi V-8 engine with Ram’s eTorque mild hybrid system. Another trim for the Ram 1500 is the Limited 10th Anniversary edition which focuses heavily on luxury. This trim adds comfort and luxury both outside and inside the Ram 1500. There’s truly something for everyone.

Inside the 2022 Ram 1500

The 2022 Ram 1500 features a more comfortable interior. The Limited 10th Anniversary edition bumps interior comfort and luxury up a couple of levels, but the base pickup has its own level as well. Features inside the Ram 1500 include heated leather seats, a panoramic sunroof, and a ton of cabin space. Higher trims include more driver-assist features and conveniences like a 12-inch touchscreen. Of course, these end up costing more but the value of the features makes it well worth it. 

The 2022 Ram 1500 comes with safety features like front and rear parking sensors, a 360° surround-view camera, and automatic emergency braking. The starting price for the 2022 Ram 1500 is $33,975 (plus destination fee), but this price gets more expensive with higher-end trims. The G/T Package, for example, on the Rebel and Laramie trims can go for $47,850 (plus destination fee) and the BackCountry edition goes for $38,700 (plus destination fee). The price points can be discouraging but for the number of features, they can be well worth it. Really it comes down to what Ram owners want out of their 2022 Ram 1500. The pickup offers just about everything a pickup owner could want which makes it so versatile and capable.

2022 Ram ProMaster Van Receives New Transmission and Technology

Thursday, September 2nd, 2021

Ram is bringing music to fans around the country with the return of the Ram BandVan. Ram first launched its BandVan program back in 2018 as a way to help up-and-coming artists and bands by supplying them with a ProMaster van. The automaker partnered with SiriusXM and Pandora to give fans an opportunity to hear their favorite bands live as they toured in the full-sized van. The Back to Live Tour will be launching with the Foo Fighters heading the first act. They will be traveling inside the 2022 Ram ProMaster Van which Ram has recently updated. The van features a new transmission and updated technology and safety features. Artists will be able to enjoy the comfortable and tuned-up BandVan as they travel the country touring.

New Technology Inside the ProMaster Van

The 2022 Ram ProMaster Van has gotten a new interior upgrade. Ram has updated the transmission, infotainment system, and safety features. Each van is powered by a transverse-mounted 3.6L V6 engine capable of 280 horsepower and 260lb-ft of torque. The addition of a new nine-speed automatic transmission has allowed the front wheels to be utilized more. Ram has stated that this new automatic transmission will help improve fuel efficiency and deliver smoother gear changes. 

Aside from the transmission, Ram has upgraded the interior cabin of the 2022 ProMaster Van. The van’s center stack has been redesigned with a new 7.0-inch touchscreen. An optional 10-inch touchscreen is also available. The touchscreen systems feature Uconnect5 software which enables over-the-air updates. It also enables wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well as Amazon Alexa voice assist. Additional upgrades include more charging ports, two USB and USB Type-C ports, and a 115-volt outlet. The 2022 Ram ProMaster Van also includes a revised center stack that features HVAC controls that replace older rotary knobs. A new panel of switches replaces hazard lights, traction control, and more. The steering wheel comes with more controls and the driver has a more modern instrument panel.

The last change to the 2022 ProMaster Van is a multitude of driver and safety assist technologies. The previous year’s model introduced new active safety features like automated emergency braking and blind-spot monitoring. Now, the full-sized van has a 360-degree camera, automatic high-beam headlights, adaptive cruise control, front parking sensors, and lane-keeping assist. Bands and artists can rest easy knowing they’re safe on the road in the Ram BandVan. Ram hasn’t announced pricing for the 2022 ProMaster Van yet, but prices aren’t likely to be too much higher from previous years. The full-sized commercial van will go on sale in the fourth quarter of 2021.

What makes the upcoming Ram ProMaster lineup special is how innovative their lineup is over other brands. Each year, these vehicles become stronger, lighter and better vehicles to own. Perfect for business owners, the Ram ProMaster is a great choice to help grow your business and handle the work you need done. With more space added and increased options, let’s go over why the newest Ram ProMaster commercial vehicles are better and stronger than ever. The new Ram ProMaster trucks are also looking as sleek as can be. Let’s go over why!

Sleeker and Stronger For a Reason

These new Ram ProMaster vans are lighter and more aerodynamic with an available eTorque small electric assistive motor that is available addition to the 3.6-Liter Pentastar V6 and 5.7-Liter HEMI V8 engine options. This torque provides up to 90 lb-ft of torque over last year’s model for the V6 and up to 130 lb-ft of torque in short-term torque, boosting fuel efficiency for the gasoline engines.

More Maximum Payload Means More Results

Have a lot of work to do? Good. The Ram ProMaster is here to help. With a payload increase that allows for more cargo hauling and strength, the jobs will get done fast in the new Ram. 2019 Ram ProMaster 1500 allows up to 4,000 pounds for a maximum payload. The ProMaster 2500 moved up to 4,230 pounds and the newest ProMaster 3500 is up 240 pounds to 4,680 pounds of maximum payload. The Ram ProMaster boasts Best-in-class maximum-payload, way more than the Ford Transit and Mercedes-Benz Sprinter.

With a greater maximum towing capacity, up to 6,800 pounds for the 1500, the 2019 ProMaster is definitely stronger the previous model year and only costs $30,195 (plus destination fee) for the 2019 base model. The 2019 Ram ProMaster also costs significantly less than rivals Mercedes-Benz Sprinter and Ford Transit. When it comes to adding a new commercial van to your fleet, just know the latest Ram ProMaster now performs with greater strength and payload capacity at a friendly cost for owners.

More Ram, Please

Ram fans can show off their Ram ProMaster like never before with the addition of the RAM script on the front of the grille for certain trims. Already boasting the Best-in-class cargo height, width and lowest floor height, the Ram ProMaster has introduced the 126-inch wheelbase that includes a low roof for the 2500 trim.

WardsAuto Names 2019 Ram 1500 on 10 Best Interiors List

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2018

Miami Lakes Automall 2019 Ram 1500 WardsAuto

Wow, the 2019 Ram 1500 has really been dominating the auto industry recently. So much is going for this truck since its debut at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show. First, there were updates on trims such as the Ram 1500 BigHorn (also known as the Lone Star by Texans), Laramie Longhorn, and Tradesman, and then we found out the 2019 Ram 1500 light duty pickup truck would still be as still as affordable as ever, with an MSRP starting at $31,695 (plus destination fee). There was also the presentation at the 2018 Chicago Auto Show; Ram and Mopar presented a new catalog of performance parts to personalize the new Ram truck. What’s more, consumers don’t even need to go for aftermarket accessories to enjoy the 2019 Ram 1500. WardsAuto just named it on their “10 Best Interiors” list, making the new 2019 Ram 1500 pickup truck a winner inside and out.

Is it really any surprise though? When the 2019 Ram 1500 light duty pickup truck debuted, the body and the cabin were completely redesigned in comparison with past alterations. The automaker’s attention to detail is always superb, and this year consumer convenience and comfortability stood out in the interior more than ever. For the 2019 model year, the Ram 1500 integrates acoustic glass and active noise cancellation technologies to create an quiet interior cabin free of traffic noises and the loud music of our neighbors on the road. And it’s pretty clear when talking about technology, there’s one bit of the center console that really catches the eye.

The 2019 Ram 1500 Pricing Announced

Thursday, March 15th, 2018
Miami Lakes Automall 2019 Ram 1500 Pricing Announced

Miami Lakes Automall 2019 Ram 1500 Pricing Announced

The 2019 Ram 1500 truck debuted back in January at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show, and since then it’s quickly taken over the spotlight for light duty pickup trucks. More news about the truck and its capabilities have come out, and we’ve seen some new high-end and luxury trims, Mopar and Ram teamed up for the 2018 Chicago Auto Show, and most recently we got the starting MSRP. Yes, the pricing for the 2019 Ram 1500 has been announced, but before we talk about the affordable price range, let’s remember what Ram is bringing to the table.

Power and Capability

The second vehicle to sport it, the 2019 Ram 1500 comes with the option to add the new eTorque system from FCA into its powertrain (standard on the V6 engine). With two engines currently available to the pickup truck, a 305 horsepower 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine and a 395 horsepower 5.7-liter V8 HEMI engine, both are able to generate torque at a standstill thanks to the new eTorque system. When revving up, the V6 can deliver 269 lb-ft of torque with an additional 90 lb-ft with the eTorque system. The V8 HEMI on the other hand can generate up to 410 lb-ft of torque, and if opting in for the eTorque system option, the V8 HEMI receives an addition of 120 lb-ft of torque to its threshold.

For the 2019 model year, the Ram 1500 light duty pickup truck has been given a new 4×4 off-road package. Already designed to act as an off-road vehicle thanks to Ram’s four-corner air suspension system and a front and rear stabilizer bar, the 2019 Ram 1500 lineup has even more options. Available on most trims, drivers can now go off-road by opting in for the off-road package that adds a one-inch suspension lift, with or without the available four-corner air suspension, an electronic-locking rear differential, robust skid plate protection (transfer case, steering, engine and gas tank), tow hooks, hill-descent control for added off-road capability, and 32-inch on/off-road tires on (standard) 18- or (available) 20-inch wheels to provide additional grip.

Mopar and Ram Presentation at 2018 Chicago Auto Show

Friday, February 9th, 2018
Miami Lakes Automall 2018 Chicago Auto Show Ram Mopar Webcast Feature

Miami Lakes Automall 2018 Chicago Auto Show Ram Mopar Webcast Feature

During the 2018 Chicago Auto Show, Ram and Mopar teamed up for an all-new product presentation. Many thought Mopar was going to announce a Mopar ‘18 Ram 1500, but as it turns out, they’ve done something completely different. Instead of creating a whole new Mopar-ized Ram 1500, Mopar has actually gone a pure accessory route, opening a whole new catalog like the ones they have for Jeep and Dodge.

Wrap up

Let’s take a quick look at Mopar over the years. Having hit its 80 Years Anniversary in 2017, a lot of celebrations took place throughout the year. What started out as an automotive products and accessory store, Mopar was simply a combination of “MOtor” and “PARts”. As time went on and technology opened all sorts of new possibilities, Mopar grew and expanded into other industries. Soon enough, Mopar went from a parts and accessories store to a shop that specializes in customizing and modifying automobiles.

Mopar was the first to…

– Develop vehicle-information apps for smartphones that let drivers know about the condition of their vehicle remotely

– Design a new interactive vehicle tracking device that could monitor a vehicle’s speed and location, much like the many copycat products out there today

– Put Wi-fi wireless hotspots in vehicles

– Go paperless with owner’s manuals, introducing a new age of digital forms that one can view on their smartphone

– Create the wiADVISOR, a tablet-based service lane tool for faster automotive service for FCA vehicles via dealership service departments

With all that under their belt, Mopar decided to take one of its most loved car brands and modify it as much as they could for their 80th anniversary. In 2017, Mopar designed and produced two Dodge Challengers with custom two-tone paint jobs done by hand, added on a Mopar 392 logo, 20-inch aluminum wheels, Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat black exhaust tips, put a 6.4-liter 392 HEMI under the hood, boosted performance with a cold air intake system, modified strut tower braces and caps for increased rigidity and handling, four-piston Brembo brakes to provide exceptional stopping power, trimmed seats in tungsten leather, and more. Only 80 units were made and all 80 were sold out before the year’s end.

Following this, Mopar opened three new parts distribution centers, two of which were built in the U.S., to provide better service and availability to their many customers. In conjunction with this, Mopar opened their 1300th Mopar Express Lane to provide quick service for consumers of FCA vehicles. Mopar also developed a protection plan, known as the Mopar 360 Protection Plan, and have sold 3.5 million plans in total since its conception.

Over the past 80 years, Mopar has customized over 300,000 vehicles in Mopar Custom Auto Shops. They do this because they know how much it means for people to be able to customize their vehicles. Not only does it add support and add value to automotive brands, but it creates an emotional connection between car and driver. So when their 80th Anniversary rolled around, they went with the most customized vehicle in the Mopar portfolio – a Dodge Challenger. On average, customers have been known to spend over $1k in mods or accessories when customizing their Dodge Challenger muscle car.

On a global scale, the most customized vehicle is the Jeep Wrangler, named the hottest 4×4 SUV at SEMA for the past 8 years. 98% of Jeep Wranglers are customized with at least one Mopar accessory, and recently, Mopar launched a new portfolio with 200 accessories for the Jeep Wrangler. Many of those accessories showed up on the Wrangler at the Chicago Auto Show (seen below).

What’s Ram Have to Do with It?

By the end of 2017, Ram had its best year ever, in sales and market share. When the 2019 came out, Ram had changed how truck buyers look at strength, performance, efficiency, technology, and luxury. The 2019 Ram 1500:

– Has the strongest frame of any Ram truck before, made with 98% high-strength steel for maximum durability

– Implemented the eTorque system in the V6 and HEMI V8 engines, able to add another 130 lb-ft of torque to the already 410 lb-ft of torque generated by the HEMI V8

– Developed and installed new technology – (1) a 360 surround view camera, and (2) a blind spot system with trailer coverage, able to detect how long and wide one’s trailer is while on the road and around turns

– Installed the 12-inch touchscreen, a first for trucks everywhere, coupled with Sirius 360L on-demand technology that learns what people listen to and makes Sirius available virtually anywhere

– Uses new luxury materials in the interior, specifically for the 2019 Ram 1500 Laramie Longhorn and Limited trims, made with an extensive use of authentic wood, leather, and metal materials. The interior was said to be the “Best in the Detroit Auto Show”, but no awards showed up for that one

– Has extra wheel base space with 4” added to the cab and more space in the rear. The increased interior cabin space not only improves ride quality, but Ram also added a reclining rear seat in the cab for more leg room

– Is capable of hauling a 2300 lbs payload and/or towing 12,750 lbs when powered by the HEMI V8

– Has a total of six trims in the new 2019 lineup, all of which vary in personality and (optional) looks

Mopar and Ram

Following its debut, Mopar opened a new catalog featuring 200 plus accessories produced specifically for the Ram 1500. Between the catalog for the Wrangler and the Ram 1500, 200,000 hours were invested into the design, testing, and validation of those 200 new parts. 80,000 hours of the 200,000 was dedicated to the Ram 1500. Going forward, consumers will have over 200 pieces for customizing the new 2019 Ram 1500 to make them unique for different wants, needs, and lifestyles.

To showcase this, Mopar made a 2019 Ram 1500 with an active outdoorsy lifestyle. The new features and capabilities start in the back with an all-new Ram-rack, a fully adjustable system that attaches to rails in the truck bed and can carry oversized cargo that can’t fit with the length of the bed. Mopar also added:

– A Mopar 2” Lift kit

– Beadlock capable wheels

– BFG KO2 35”tires for additional grip

– New truck bed rails

– All new Off-road running boards tucked up close to the body for maximum ground clearance, covered with spray-on bedliner material for extra grip

– Mopar’s Ram airflow cold air intake system under the hood of the 2019 Ram 1500

– A Katback exhaust system with black chrome tips

– Katzkin leather for the upholstery

– Stainless steel door sill guards

– and Bucket style floor mats

That’s all we learned from the webcast this morning, but we’re sure more information will be released as the Chicago Auto Show continues and 2018 keeps chugging along. What do you think of all the new goodness Mopar offers? Let us know on Miami Lakes Automall social media. Interested in getting a new Ram 1500? They’ll be going into production and showing up in our inventory soon enough.

Ram and Mopar at the 2018 Chicago Auto Show

Thursday, February 8th, 2018
Miami Lakes Automall Ram Mopar 2018 Chicago Auto Show

Miami Lakes Automall Ram Mopar 2018 Chicago Auto Show

Word is, Ram and Mopar will be putting on a product presentation at the 2018 Chicago Auto Show on Friday, February 9th, 2018. Given Mopar’s history, we think we already know what it is. But first, why is this news? Unless getting into the Chicago Auto Show, then does it really matter? Well that’s why this year, Ram and Mopar will be hosting a webcast live from the Chicago Auto Show at 11 am Eastern/10 am Central.

About the Mopar Brand

Mopar first started out as a custom auto parts business but soon became the one-stop shop for all things performance. Known for their performance parts catalog, Mopar can exchange the exhaust for the cat-back exhaust for a more aggressive sound and less tension, install a cold air intake system for more horsepower, or even trim the interior upholstery with Katzkin leather interior seating for amazing comfort. They’re also known for several vehicle firsts.

For the first time-ever, automobiles came with vehicle-information apps, apps for smartphones that can let drivers know about the condition of their vehicle, even from afar thanks to Mopar’s innovation. Mopar was also the first to market a new interactive vehicle tracking device that sends owner a text when the vehicle is driven too fast or too far based on pre-set parameters; several products and Chevrolet’s Teen Driver surely got the idea from here. Wi-fi was first made possible to consumers with a wireless hotspot by Mopar, and Mopar also started the paperless owner’s manual trend, introducing them as digital forms that one can view on their smartphone. If owning an FCA vehicle and in need of service, Mopar also developed the wiADVISOR, a tablet-based service lane tool for faster service via dealership service departments.
