Ram Shares More About Upcoming Ram EV

As of late, Ram has been busy teasing the upcoming all-electric Ram EV. The automaker has teased the name Ram Revolution, but besides the fitting name, there has not been much information about the automaker’s first EV. We do know that the electric Ram pickup is slated for a 2024 release date. We also know that Stellantis CEO Carlos Tavares has stated that the Ram EV will feature powerful capabilities and an impressive battery range. Given the long road ahead, Ram can really focus on the essentials of what constitutes a Ram EV. Stellantis has also been investing in software development, so it’s likely this will make its way into the pickup. Tavares recently spoke recently about his visions for the electric pickup, so we’ll go over them and what that means for those looking forward to the 2024 Ram EV.

Stellantis CEO Speaks on Ram EV Vision

In the midst of a zero-carbon emission revolution, many automakers have been considering how they can best present their own version of an electric vehicle. Although best known for their gas-powered Ram 1500, faced with the goal of reducing global emissions, Ram has decided to take all that they know about pickup trucks, and create the perfect EV pickup. Thus is born the Ram EV, or Ram Revolution (we like the latter).

Stellantis CEO Carlos Tavares recently spoke about the Ram EV in Amsterdam. Tavares showcased the outline of the Ram EV and presented the vision his team was working toward. Sketches of the upcoming EV pickup showed the Ram EV with modern and sleek aerodynamic lines. On the tailgate, the words Ram could be seen in the center with red lights sprawling along the sides and across the top. Tavares said that although the Ram EV will be arriving late to the market, its performance packages along with its time to charge and battery range would make up for the tardiness.

Not much is currently known about the 2024 Ram EV, but from what we’ve heard it promises to be strong and competitive. Based on the sketches, it seems like the electric pickup will resemble the Silverado EV with a futuristic design rather than the conventional truck design seen with the F-150 Lightning. Ram has also promised to equip the Ram EV with a range extender, so we’ll have to stay tuned to learn all about the all-electric pickup.

Ram 1500 EV to Feature a Range Extender

Ram has been in the news for its upcoming all-electric 2024 Ram 1500 EV. Like many automakers, Ram has been working on its own electric vehicles. Ram has touted its Ram 1500 EV as the next level of EV pickups. Although competitors like Ford and Tesla have revealed their own electric pickups, Ram has the advantage of making adjustments based on consumer sentiment and feedback. The latest news regarding the electric pickup is that the Ram 1500 EV will feature a range extender. The electric pickup is set to debut in 2024, but for now, we’ll discuss the impact that such a feature could have on the overall pickup sector. 

Ram EV May Feature a Range Extender

The Ram 1500 EV is set to debut in 2024. Ram CEO Mike Koval Jr. has been speaking on the upcoming capabilities and specifications of the electric pickup. One of these is the addition of a range extender. Since 2024 is a few years away, Ram has the luxury of committing to higher performance standards and more driver-assist features than other competitors. If Ram can figure out a way to implement its range extender, it will greatly boost the automaker’s credibility as a top automaker. 

The addition of a range extender, especially a combustion engine which is par the course for the feature, will make the Ram EV a plug-in hybrid. Automakers like Mazda have been experimenting with this PHEV system like with their electric MX-30. The electric SUV has a paltry amount of battery range (100 miles), so a range extender is almost a necessity. With the Ram EV however, Ram has stated its electric pickup will feature an impressive 400 miles of battery range. As a reminder, Ram has the luxury of boasting the best of the best in terms of capabilities due to its extended time frame. Despite this luxury, if Ram can make good on its promises, competitors like Ford and Tesla will have to follow suit.

Koval Jr. did not speak more on the range extender, but the addition would allow the Ram EV to boast more versatility and capability than its competitors. One of the largest concerns about EVs is the range. The average battery range is around 230 miles, so incorporating a range extender would bring in more consumers who see the current range estimates as obstacles. We’ll have to stay tuned for more information, but here’s hoping the Ram EV measures up to its expected 400 miles of battery range.

Ram to Release ‘Built to Serve’ Trucks, Inspired by First Responders

Ram will be launching the second phase of its ‘Built to Serve’ pickup truck lineup. Inspired by first responders, these trucks will honor those who put their lives on the line to save and rescue others. First responders like police officers, firefighters, and emergency medical personnel will be honored with this new lineup of pickups. They will come custom-made with exterior cues, interior upholstery, and profession-aiding features that all honor first responders. The Ram 1500 has served as a powerful and fully capable pickup capable of getting almost any job done. Now Ram will use its powerful pickup to help out those who give so much. We’ll dive in and see what first responders can expect from these pickups, but this is great recognition on Ram’s part. 

Ram ‘Built to Serve’ Lineup Announced 

Ram will be rolling out its all-new ‘Built to Serve’ lineup inspired by first responders. The pickup trucks will consist of materials and features that aid first responders like police officers, firefighters, and emergency medical personnel. Ram has decided to honor those individuals who are always giving to others. These trucks will recognize their hard work and sacrifice to keep the general public safe and protected. About the new ‘Built to Serve’ lineup, Ram brand CEO Mike Koval Jr. said, 

“After honoring each branch of the U.S. Armed Forces with our initial Built to Serve models, we felt it would be equally important to also extend our gratitude to all first responders who serve or have served our communities,” said Mike Koval Jr. “Whether a first responder or civilian, Ram truck owners are very familiar with this adage as it’s something we strive to build into every truck and van we produce.”

Each truck in the ‘Built to Serve’ lineup will consist of a specialized trim geared toward the corresponding first responder department. They will come equipped with unique low-volume exterior paint colors that represent the MO and history of the pertaining department. The firefighter-inspired Ram 1500 Built to Serve edition will come available in Redline and Diamond Black exterior colors with a black interior and orange accent stitching. 

‘Built to Serve’ Interior 

Ram’s Built to Serve lineup will consist of unique exterior and interior features that represent each individual first responder department. The Ram 1500 Built to Serve trucks will feature a United States flag and a Built to Serve decal on each of the rear quarter panels. The truck’s exterior will also consist of an all-black grille with black bumpers, black-bezel premium lightning, and 20-inch aluminum wheels with a unique Technical Gray finish.  

Inside the Built to Serve trucks, first responders will note unique color stitching that matches the pertaining emergency service. The first installment will feature orange accent stitching but the following will match the particular department. The trucks will also feature Built to Serve-embroidered velcro panels on the front seats. There’s also velcro on the front seat inboard shoulder panel. This is for patches, tapes, and any special memorabilia special to the corresponding first responders. The front seat-back panels will also be covered with Pouch Attachment Laddy System/Modular Lightweight Load-bearing Equipment webbing to allow for special equipment. 

Ram’s ‘Built to Serve’ lineup will start at an MSRP of $46,625 (plus destination fee). The first installment will be the firefighter-inspired Ram 1500. These Built to Serve trucks will honor the three main emergency services for all their work. They will recognize and honor police officers, firefighters, and emergency medical service providers.

Ram To Announce Ram Revolution Insider Program

Ram recently announced an exclusive insider program for Ram fans. Ram will be calling this new program Ram Revolution after its all-new Ram EV. The program will allow fans to travel alongside the automaker on its journey with the all-electric pickup. The Ram Revolution was recently announced as a powerful all-electric pickup that would transform the pickup market. Ram has been intent on crafting a pickup that can defy all odds while still being environmentally friendly. To do this, the automaker will be listening for feedback from consumers using its insider program. We’ll take a look at what consumers invited to the exclusive program can hope to expect.

Ram to Invite Consumers to Speak About Ram EV 

Ram will be opening up a dialogue with its devout fans. The automaker will be creating the Ram Revolution program which is an exclusive insider program. Ram fans will be able to join the automaker as it crafts and improves the Ram EV. Along with this insider program, Ram will be opening up a new site called RamRevolution.com. It will provide consumers with a first-hand look at Ram’s philosophy and direction for its first EV. The site will also provide meaningful updates along with visuals and content. About its new program and site, Ram CEO Mike Koval Jr. said,

“Launched as a stand-alone truck brand in 2009, Ram revolutionized the pickup truck segment once, and is laser-focused on doing so again with the best electric trucks on the market,” said Mike Koval Jr. “Our new Ram Revolution campaign will allow us to engage with consumers in a close and personal way, so we can gather meaningful feedback, understand their wants and needs and address their concerns – ultimately allowing us to deliver the best electric pickup truck on the market with the Ram 1500 BEV.”

Mike Koval Jr. Ram CEO Branch of Stellantis

Ram will use the power of public opinion to strengthen its Ram Revolution EV. The automaker will open up conversations to hear consumer feedback on what an EV pickup should consist of. The automaker’s Ram Real Talk Tour will continue these conversations to better understand what’s expected from an electric pickup. Ram has boasted that its electric pickup will carry an impressive amount of battery range and that it will also be just as powerful, if not more, than its current gasoline lineup. These insider programs and conversations will ensure this. The Ram Revolution EV is set to release in 2024.

All-New Ram EV Sees Potential Name, ‘Ram Revolution’

Stellantis recently filed a trademark application for the name Ram Revolution. This comes as huge news for the automaker as it has been turning its attention toward EVs. Just recently Stellantis stated that it was investing as much as $34 billion into its development and software. Now, as computer-generated images make their way across the internet, many are hoping the news revolves around the all-new all-electric Ram EV. Based on the trademark application, many are assuming that this will be the name for the next-generation electric Ram pickup. It makes sense given Stellantis’ recent statement about starting work on an EV pickup. The automaker was able to disclose a launch date of 2024 for the EV pickup but for now, just the name is enough to satisfy consumers. We’ll be looking at additional information about the Ram EV, but Ram fans will certainly want to stay tuned as Stellantis has stated that it will be offering a more powerful alternative to the Ford F-150 Lightning and Tesla Cybertruck.

Will the Ram EV be called the Ram Revolution?

Ram’s parent company Stellantis recently filed a trademark application with the United States Patent Trademark Office. The application was filed in January of 2022 and it was for the name Ram Revolution. According to the online publication Autoblog, this trademark request applied specifically to passenger truck names. Given Stellantis’ approach to EVs and all the teaser images of the Ram EV pickup, it’s very likely that this will be the name used for the Ram EV.

The all-new all-electric Ram pickup first made an appearance at Stellantis’ EV Day in 2021. The electric pickup was only a computer-generated image, but it still evoked a sense of hope for the future of pickups. Stellantis knows that it will have to compete with Ford and Tesla. Although these competitors have got a headstart on the EV pickup sector, it offers Stellantis a chance to fine-tune their own EV pickup. About the upcoming Ram EV, Ram’s senior brand marketing manager Carl Lally said,

“What we’ve heard from our consumers is that they’re not looking for a compromised truck solution, so really, some of the core attributes that we communicate to our customers about our trucks, the capability and the durability, those aren’t going to change, I think, as you look forward to an EV-oriented truck product.”

Stellantis is making sure to take advantage of the time it has. The Ram EV is set to debut in 2024, so the automaker still has time to enhance and improve its pickup. Stellantis has already started hyping up its pickup stating that the Ram EV will offer 500 miles of battery range. This range is currently unheard of, but as time progresses, automakers may figure out a feasible way to make it happen. We hope to see more of the Ram EV but for now, the Ram Revolution has a nice ring to it.

Ram EV Sees Adjustments Ahead of 2024 Debut

Ram has made strides with its iconic pickups. The Ram 1500 has earned its fair share of awards and accolades like the best light-duty pickup of 2021. The Ram 1500 TRX has also earned accolades like being the Texas Truck of the Year. With many automakers turning toward EVs and hybrids, Ram is considering jumping into the EV sector as well. The automaker had previously announced plans for its own EV pickup. Now it seems that vision will become a reality. Stellantis CEO Carlos Tavares recently spoke about the company’s plans for the Ram EV. According to Tavares, the electric pickup will continue to be modified and improved as the company sees fit. With a 2024 launch date, the automaker still has time to improve its EV pickup. One downside to this extra time, however, is that consumers may remain loyal to another EV pickup and they may not consider the Ram EV. Only time will tell. For now, let’s dive into the upcoming Ram EV.

Ram EV On the Way?

Ram has been sitting cozy lately. The automaker’s pickup trucks have been recognized as some of the best available given their performance and capability. Unfortunately, there comes a time when things switch up and those who were on top must conform, or risk losing their spot. This seems to be the case with the new generation of vehicles as many automakers have been turning toward EVs and hybrids. This shift in the auto industry is primarily due to the ongoing global climate crisis. Governments around the globe have acknowledged this persistent threat and, as such, many have started enacting policies and legislation to help reduce carbon emissions. This brings us to Ram and their EV pickup which they teased over a year ago.

The Ram EV is slated for a 2024 release. Stellantis’ CEO Carlos Tavares recently spoke with the financial group Morgan Stanley about the potential features and specs of the all-new all-electric pickup. Tavares stated that his company is gauging consumer interest based on their competitors’ EVs to determine the proper course of their own EV. This is a smart move. Stellantis and Ram can prepare the ultimate EV pickup based on what they feel is most important to consumers. About the company’s decisions, Taveres said,

“We are preparing the EV pickup trucks for 2024, and we are doing it by adjusting the specs and adjusting the performance in function of what we see coming up from our competitors,” said Stellantis CEO Carlos Tavares. “It’s a fact that we are coming slightly after them. But it’s also a fact that we have the opportunity to adjust the competitiveness and the appeal of our own trucks to what they are doing, which is a competitive game, which is a fantastic situation for the consumer because the real winner of this competition is the consumer.”

When they last spoke about the Ram EV, Ram had said that the mile range would be around 500 miles. This is a huge leap as Ford’s F-150 Lightning currently gets 300 miles of battery range, and Chevy just announced that their Silverado EV will get 400 miles of battery range. If Ram has the capability, and we’re sure they do, consumers will receive the ultimate Ram EV pickup. They just have to wait patiently until 2024.

The Ram 1500 Classic is the Ideal Pickup for Enthusiasts

Ram has been dominating lately with its Ram 1500. The rough and tough pickup was recently ranked first among light-duty pickup trucks in a 2021 APPEAL Study. Given its capability, durability, and overall toughness as a pickup, the Ram 1500 has continued to be an iconic truck. Ram offers the Ram 1500 with a range of combinations and features. Consumers wanting a truck oriented toward hauling can opt for Towing packages while those looking for an everyday truck can opt for more luxurious trims like the Laramie or Rebel trim. Better still, Ram offers specialty Ram trucks like the TRX RexRunner for those wanting more excitement out of their pickup. All these are great choices but one Ram pickup that holds up and is relatively affordable is the Ram 1500 Classic. We’ll take a look at this light-duty pickup and check out its versatility.

Checking Out The Ram 1500 Classic

The Ram 1500 Classic is one of the most affordable yet capable pickups available. The pickup starts at an MSRP of $29,490 (plus destination fee) and comes standard with a 3.6L V6 engine capable of 305 horsepower. Consumers can opt for higher outputs like a 5.7L Hemi V8, but the V6 can certainly get the job done. The Ram 1500 Classic uses an automatic transmission and it can tow up to 8240 pounds when equipped with the right features. Given the capabilities, this pickup is well worth the price.

Where the Ram 1500 Classic shines is with its powertrain and affordable price. While the interior and exterior may not be anything to brag about, it’s likely that those consumers wanting an affordable pickup may not be too concerned with luxury and design. The exterior of the Ram Classic, for example, is a throwback to previous Ram trucks so there isn’t too much in terms of detail. This is also a way to save costs. Still, there are three trim levels for the pickup including the Tradesmen, the Express, and the Warlock. The Tradesmens trim features a black neutral front design and simple wheels. The Express trim comes with a painted front end and upgraded wheels. The Warlock trim is the higher-end of the three and it features a new front fascia and aggressive paint schemes. It also comes with black wheels.

Though the Ram 1500 Classic looks pretty barebones both inside and out, it features different body style options. Consumers can opt for either a two-door style or, with an extended cab option, a four-door style. The Ram’s bed comes standard at 6 foot 4 inches but an 8-foot option can be chosen as well. For those wanting more durability, a 4×4 option is available. Overall, the Ram 1500 Classic is the ultimate pickup in terms of affordability. It’s got toughness and is capable of getting the job done no matter what that may be.

Mopar Teases Ram 1500 TRX RexRunner and Outdoorsman Concepts

Ram is getting two new concept vehicles courtesy of Mopar. The Stellantis parts, service, and customer care division prepared several vehicles for the 2021 Speciality Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show. Hosted in Las Vegas, Nevada, the 2021 SEMA Show brings manufacturers and buyers from different segments of the automotive industry together to share new parts, accessories, and concept vehicles. The Ram 1500 has done exceptionally well in recent years. The pickup has been highly rated by the Texas Motor Press Association as the Texas Truck of the Year and it has also been awarded the Light-Duty Pickup of the Year in a recent 2021 APEAL study. Now the iconic Ram pickup will be getting two new concepts, the Ram 1500 TRX RexRunner and the Ram 1500 Outdoorsman. We’ll dive into the concept trucks and see what Mopar has to offer for fans of the rough and tough pickup.

Ram 1500 TRX RexRunner

Mopar presented the Ram 1500 TRX RexRunner as one of its concept vehicles at the 2021 SEMA Show. The RexRunner is based on the 2021 Ram 1500 TRX but this pickup gets even more capability and durability. The RexRunner pickup comes equipped with a standard 6.2L Hemi V8 that’s capable of 702 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. The truck features 18×9-inch Black Rhino Chamber wheels wrapped in 37-inch Goodyear tires. These give off a race-inspired look which is further complemented by Ash Gray paint and Mopar Blue accents. 

The Ram RexRunner also features a RamBar and a pair of 14-inch TYRI rectangular LED lights. A Mopar bed extender that flips inward helps secure tools and a bed liner protects cargo. Enhancing the rough and rugged look of the pickup are custom skid plates with Mopar lettering that protect the truck’s underside. These increase the approach angle up to 32.5 degrees while Mopar rock rails protect the side sills. The pickup also gets a custom black flip-top fuel-filler door that accentuates the truck’s toughness. Final additions to the RexRunner concept include 5-inch Mopar exhausts in the rear as well as a Mopar bed step with an articulating arm for easy access to the truck bed. 

Ram 1500 Outdoorsman

For the Ram 1500 Outdoorsman concept pickup, Mopar used the Ram 1500 Big Horn Crew Cab 4×4 as a base model. The idea around the Outdoorsman concept was that it was to be made for those hard-working consumers that also want an everyday truck. The Ram 1500 Outdoorsman comes with a painted black gloss and custom Mopar blue graphics. Designed for hard work and harder play, the truck comes with a two-height position aluminum Mopar bed rack system that goes the full width of the truck bed. This rack system can hold ladders, plywood, whatever the owner needs. Mounted on the floor of the bed are modified Expertec bed-slides capable of holding 2,000 pounds. These make unloading tools, gear, and equipment much easier. Bed rails are also attached to the inside of the walls of the bed. These come with adjustable cleats that slide to secure loads of all sizes.

The Ram 1500 Outdoorsman comes equipped with all a handyman needs. The pickup features a custom Mopar RamGate workbench on the inside panel of the tailgate. It features conversion charts, an angle finder, and a T-track mounting system that adds additional room for cutting wood, tuning bikes, or sharpening tools. The pickup rides on a 2-inch lift kit with Fox shocks and split six-spoke 20×9-inch Black Rhino wheels wrapped in 35-inch Continental tires. Inside the pickup, owners will note a custom deployable work surface that slides out from the center armrest. It provides 12×14 inches of extra workspace. 

Ram fans are getting two new concept pickups. The RexRunner is a sportier version of the iconic pickup while the Outdoorsman takes outdoor work to another level. These two pickups are still concepts but from what we’ve seen so far, they’re two trucks that Ram owners are sure to love.

2021 Ram 1500 TRX Receives Top Honor as Texas Truck of the Year

The Ram 1500 is once again in the spotlight as it takes yet another award. The 2021 Ram 1500 TRX was recently awarded the top honor of Texas Truck of the Year. The pickup was also awarded High-Performance Truck of the Year. These accolades all come soon after the Ram 1500 won first place in the 2021 APEAL study. Here the pickup was designated as the best light-duty pickup based on consumer sentiment and feedback. Truly the Ram 1500 is leagues ahead of the competition. The newest accolades for the pickup come from the Texas Motor Press Association Off-Road Invitational which focuses on bringing automotive industry professionals together to highlight different aspects of the industry. The audience is primarily Texas-based but the membership is made up of automotive journalists who cover a range of vehicles from cars, trucks, and SUVs to ATVs and UTVs. They are all knowledgeable and share key insights into the leading vehicles of the automotive industry. In 2021 they recognized the Ram 1500 for its versatility, capability, and overall high performance as a pickup that can get the job done.

Ram 1500 TRX Recognized as Texas Truck of the Year

The 2021 Ram 1500 TRX was recently recognized as the Texas Truck of the Year and the High-Performance Truck of the Year. These accolades come from the 2021 Texas Motor Press Association event that recognizes the best vehicles in the industry. Ram has done a superb job with their Ram 1500. The pickup has served consumers as a powerful and durable vehicle that can handle any job. Towing, hauling, and getting to the destination is what a pickup is about. The Ram does all that and more with the latest technology and safety features. About the Ram 1500, the president of the Texas Motor Press Association Bryan Grant said,

“The challenging off-road trails were no problem for Ram 1500 TRX as it easily trekked over the roads with massive horsepower, multiple drive modes and lofty ground clearance. It was so much fun to experience the truck conquer the trails. We all took notice of the wild animal roar exhaust note off in the distance,” said Bryan Grant, the president of Texas Motor Press Association.

Bryan Grant, President of Texas Motor Press Association

Given the Ram 1500’s capabilities, many recognize it as an industry-standard pickup truck. The Ram truck brand was first started in 2009. It began as a stand-alone division focused on meeting the needs and demands of truck buyers. The brand has grown exponentially over the years as it has expanded its lineup with vehicles like the Ram 1500, Ram 2500/3500 Heavy Duty, and 3500/4500/5500 series Chassis Cabs. The brand also offers its ProMaster vans which allow groups to travel together with their equipment. Overall Ram has stayed true to its mission of building trucks that get hard work done and take families where they need to go.

Ram will continue to build on its lineup as it offers higher performance, greater convenience, and lasting durability. The automaker has racked up award after award each year. As the years go by, people will continue to depend on a strong pickup. With their new Know and Go mobile app, Ram is aiming to increase customer satisfaction and deliver more immersive experiences. We’ll have to see where the automaker goes from here, but right now it looks like its lead is stronger than ever.

A Comprehensive Look at the 2022 Ram 1500 Crew Cab

The Ram 1500 was recently ranked first among light-duty pickups in a 2021 APEAL study. As one of Ram’s most iconic vehicles, the Ram 1500 deserves all its praise. The light-duty pickup offers consumers a powerful, durable, and capable vehicle that seems to have unmatched versatility. With so many different trims each offering consumers specific traits, the Ram 1500 has solidified itself as a go-to option for dedicated pickup owners. For the 2022 model year, Ram has updated the Ram 1500 with new features and technology. Offered with either a crew cab or quad cab configuration, the 2022 Ram 1500 offers a level of versatility not seen in other pickups. We’ll dive into the interior of the 2022 Ram 1500 crew cab and see just what’s offered for the new year model pickup.

Looking at the 2022 Ram 1500’s Interior

The 2022 Ram 1500 Crew Cab has a host of new features and technologies. The light-duty pickup is very versatile in that it has many options for configurations like engine choice for example. The 2022 Ram 1500 can come equipped with a 3.6L V6, a 5.7L Hemi V8, a 3.0L turbodiesel, or a supercharged 6.2L V8. It depends on necessity and the owner’s desired performance. The availability of choice provides owners with a multitude of specifications so they can get the best out of their pickup. All standard V6 engines feature an eTorque mild-hybrid system while the V8 can be ordered with or without it. This hybrid system uses an electric motor to improve fuel economy, acceleration, and smoothness.

The 2022 Ram 1500 comes in either a quad cab or crew cab configuration. Consumers can purchase either a short (5-foot-7) or a long (6-foot-4) box. With close to ten different trims, owners can choose their preferred interior aesthetic. The 10th Anniversary Limited Edition Ram, for example, includes more luxurious features and upscale upholstery. This Ram trim features quilted leather seats and door inserts along with a suede headline that extends to the overhead visors. It also features a premium 19-speaker sound system. As for space and storage, the Ram 1500 features a spacious interior. An under-armrest storage bin in the first row is large enough to fit a 15-inch laptop and cubby holes can also be found on the doors. The rear seats can fold forward for even more storage space. In total, the Ram 1500 Crew Cab offers 132.4 cubic feet of passenger space. 

Looking at the 2022 Ram 1500’s Features and Technology

The 2022 Ram 1500 Crew Cab comes with a multitude of features and driver-assist technologies. Despite each trim offering specific features, the overall controls inside the pickup are easily accessible and easy to use. A 12-inch infotainment screen provides access to car diagnostics and entertainment like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. A head-up display allows drivers to stay informed about their speed, gears, and directions while keeping their eyes on the road. A digital rearview mirror also helps provide a clearer view of what’s behind the vehicle in real-time.

As mentioned, the 2022 Ram 1500 comes available with many different trims. Some of these include the Laramie trim, Big Horn, TRX, and Tradesman. Each offers owners specific features like heated leather seats, a bigger infotainment screen, or specifications to help with towing and hauling. The base 2022 Ram 1500 starts at an MSRP of $32,795 (plus destination fee). This price scales up with higher-end trims but the cost is well worth the additional features. The Ram 1500 offers versatility unseen with other pickups. We’ll have to see what else Ram has in store for its iconic pickup, but for now, it’s a clear winner among its class.
