2021 Ram 1500 Ranks First Among Light-Duty Pickups in New APEAL Study

Friday, September 24th, 2021
Ram 1500 TRX

Ram has earned yet another accolade for its Ram 1500 pickup. According to the J.D. Power 2021 Automotive Performance Execution and Layout (APEAL) study, the 2021 Ram 1500 ranked first among light-duty pickups. This APEAL study uses consumer sentiment and feedback to gauge which vehicle is more favorable. Overall, the Dodge brand managed to rank first, the second year in a row. For Ram, the automaker took second place, also for the second year in a row. 2021 has been a great year for both automakers. Ram has seen much success with its Ram 1500 with several package options and trims being released like the 2022 Ram 1500 Backcountry. With consumer satisfaction at its highest, the automaker looks to continue to enjoy its success. 

Ram 1500 Ranks First Among Pickups

According to the 2021 APEAL study, the 2021 Ram 1500 ranked first among light-duty pickups. The high-performing pickup has dominated markets for a while now. In 2020 the pickup earned the same first-place ranking, thus solidifying it as an optimal pickup truck. The APEAL study gauges consumer satisfaction by looking at feedback during the first three months of ownership. Vehicle attributes like seating comfort, throttle response, and other key characteristics make up a score based on a 1,000 point scale. About their market success, the Stellantis Head of Customer Experience North America Mark Champine said,

“I said last year that we would keep the throttle wide open, and these various results demonstrate our continuing resolve to do so,” said Mark Champine. “We remain on a mission to do better for our customers, and we know we have more work to do.”

Mark Champine, Stellantis Head of Customer Experience North America

The APEAL study aggregates all the characteristics of each nominated vehicle and gives each a score out of 1,000. For the 2021 Ram 1500, the APEAL score totaled 881. This score was 10 points higher than the 2020 APEAL study which means Ram has managed to raise and solidify the Ram 1500’s status as a great pickup to own. Along with the APEAL score, Ram as a brand managed to place second within the automotive industry. This was a step up from last year as the automaker had placed third among mass markets brands.

The 2021 Ram 1500 has earned Ram a spot among the best automotive companies. The tough pickup managed to raise the automaker to the highest echelons with its high performance, tough durability, and iconic look. The Ram 1500 will continue to play a dominating role within the pickup truck sphere. As automakers move toward electric vehicles, we’ll have to see how consumer satisfaction and sentiment react to changes. It seems automakers have been split between moving toward new innovations like with Tesla’s Cybertruck and keeping to traditional aspects like with Ford’s F-150 Lightning. Either way, the consumers will have the power to choose. We will be looking forward to the 2022 APEAL study and its findings.

2022 Ram ProMaster Van Looks to be a Strong Competitor as a Transit Vehicle

Thursday, September 16th, 2021
Ram ProMaster

Ram has updated its ProMaster Van for the 2022 model year. The transit van has served as a utility vehicle carrying supplies, parts, and pieces for several years now. Ram has also utilized the ProMaster van as a traveling vehicle for bands. The transit vehicle offers a lot of versatility and function and now, Ram is making it even better. For the 2022 model year, Ram will be updating the transmission, interior cabin, and infotainment system of the transit van. Ram is hoping the 2022 ProMaster van will trump other transit vehicles like the Ford Transit. From the updates and new interior, it’s looking like the ProMaster will exceed expectations. 

2022 Ram ProMaster Receives Updates

Ram will be updating its ProMaster van for the 2022 model year. Although the transit van has proved to be a reliable and comfortable ride for drivers and passengers, Ram is making sure the riding experience sees several new improvements. For this, Ram is updating the 2022 Ram ProMaster van with a new nine-speed automatic transmission, a new interior look, the Uconnect 5 infotainment system, and some new safety features.

The 2022 Ram ProMaster van will use the same 3.6L V6 engine as the 2021 Ram ProMaster. Currently, the engine is capable of an impressive 280 horsepower and 352lb-ft of torque. With the addition of a new nine-speed automatic transmission, however, it will be much more efficient. Ram will be replacing the previous transmission with a TorqueFlite transmission which will deliver a better final-drive ratio. This will increase performance and pack a little more punch. Along with the new transmission is the addition of a push to start engine function. This comes alongside a push-button electric parking brake. One more helpful feature being added to the transit van is an electric rack and pinion power steering. This will improve fuel economy and aid steering assistance.

The 2022 Ram ProMaster van will also be getting a new interior look. The transit vehicle has a modern and stylish look that’s enhanced by sleek panels and digitized buttons. Leather-trimmed material and black two-tone color also add to the stylish look. For space, Ram will be offering a two-row crew van package that lets three people sit up front. This sets the ProMaster apart from other cargo vans as this additional space provides a lot more comfort for drivers and passengers. For entertainment, Ram ProMaster drivers can utilize the new Uconnect 5 system. A 10-inch touchscreen provides access to smartphone connectivity, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and driver-assist features.

The last bit of updates to the 2022 Ram ProMaster van are new driver-assist and safety features. These consist of cornering function, traffic sign recognition, adaptive cruise control, front parking sensors, lane-keep assist, and a rear camera. These features provide drivers with the assurance that they are safe and secure on the road. Another advanced driver-assist feature is active driving assist which includes level 2 automated driving capability. This uses adaptive cruise control and can even manage the throttle and brakes. Drivers will also have access to a 360-degree side view camera that will help with blind spots. A release date for the 2022 Ram ProMaster van has not yet been confirmed, but the newly updated ProMaster van looks to be a very viable and comfortable transit vehicle, so much so that it seems other transit vehicles may have to look toward the ProMaster van for inspiration.

Ram to Update 2022 Lineup with Uconnect 5

Thursday, September 9th, 2021

Ram is bringing the award-winning Uconnect 5 infotainment system to its lineup. The automaker will be updating its 2022 lineup of pickup trucks and commercial vehicles with the new technology. The Uconnect 5 system will help deliver faster operating speeds, provide owners with new content, and give owners access to new convenient features like voice recognition. Ram is upgrading its latest vehicle models like the 2022 Ram 1500 with new technology that will aid consumers. This will also help future vehicles like the all-electric Ram pickup. As the automaker moves toward the future, it looks as though it will continue to provide its consumers with the toughest of vehicles and the latest features and technology.

Benefits of the Uconnect 5 System

Ram will be updating its 2022 pickups and commercial vehicles with the new Uconnect 5 system. This system will offer new convenience and connectivity services that will help keep Ram owners better engaged and informed while driving. Stellantis head of software business and product development Mamatha Charmarthi speaks further on the new capabilities of the Uconnect 5 system.

“A competitive advantage of our Uconnect 5 system lies in its ability to align with customer needs using personalization and unique content for each brand,” said Mamatha Chamarthi. “The features and user experience are tailor-made for Ram trucks and Ram commercial vehicles, and will continue to expand with the digitalization of mobility.”

Mamatha Charmarthi, Stellantis Head of Software Business and Product Development

The new Uconnect 5 system will offer more customization options for Ram pickup and commercial vehicle owners. Ram owners will be able to personalize their Uconnect home screen with their favorite apps and features. They will also be able to customize their cluster screen and head-up display to help provide information directly to them. If a Ram driver is towing a heavy load up a steep grade, for instance, they will be able to view and monitor the truck’s powertrain temperatures on their cluster screen. Additional customization options include the ability to create personal profiles. This will help commercial vehicle drivers who may share or switch positions with other drivers. Each driver will be able to customize their profile to match their preferred seat position, mirror placement, and music selection. 

Additional benefits of the new Uconnect 5 system include the ability to receive over-the-air updates, use voice recognition, and use the mobile Uconnect app. Over-the-air updates are part of a new feature that automakers have been installing in their new vehicles. Ram will be using the Uconnect 5 system to provide its drivers with Maps over the air and last-mile navigation. These two features will provide drivers with relevant map updates and provide walking directions to their vehicle. It will also enable vehicles to receive updates and notifications about new software updates and services. 

Voice recognition and use of the mobile Uconnect app will be enabled by the Uconnect 5 system. Ram owners will be able to communicate with their advanced voice recognition system to help with convenience. Finding nearby stores or rest stops will become much easier. Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Alexa will be able to be used with the voice recognition system as well. The Uconnect mobile app will allow drivers to use their smartphones to start the engine, lock and unlock doors, and receive notifications. It will also allow drivers to use an assistance feature that will sense if a crash has taken place. Drivers will also have access to vehicle location and family driver alerts. Concerned parents will be able to monitor their child’s location and speed. With the new Uconnect 5 system, Ram owners will be able to have more control over their vehicle. This new feature makes it clear that Ram is prioritizing convenience and aiming to provide the best available for their consumers.

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.

Ram BandVan Returns with Back to Live Tour

Thursday, August 26th, 2021
Ram Band Van

Ram is getting ready to relaunch its Ram BandVan program. Due to the global pandemic, most things have had to be canceled or postponed. Ram first initiated its BandVan program back in 2018 as a way to help emerging bands by providing them with a ProMaster BandVan. At the time, Ram partnered with SiriusXM and Pandora to give fans an opportunity to hear their favorite bands live. Ram had become the first automaker to offer SiriusXM with 360L and it was also the first to feature personalized stations powered by Pandora. Now all three companies are working together again to promote new and upcoming artists as well as iconic bands like the Foo Fighters. This fall, look out for the Ram BandVan as it crosses state lines bringing music everywhere it goes.

Ram is Hitting the Road

Ram is launching its Ram BandVan once again. The first group to be featured in the Back to Live Tour will be the Foo Fighters. They will be joined by Radkey. In addition to the Foo Fighters and Radkey, Ram will be supporting at least five other emerging artists. New content will be viewable at RamBandVan.com and on social media sites like YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram. The punk band Radkey will be the first act of the year. Speaking about the tour Radkey said,

“This has been a year like no other, and now to finally be back on the road rocking with fans in real life, is an incredible feeling,” said Radkey. “We are so thankful to Ram Truck, SiriusXM, and Pandora for our Ram BandVan, enabling us and fellow musicians alike to hit the road running and tour once again.”

Radkey

Ram will be providing the touring artists with the ProMaster Ram BandVan. It will be equipped with SiriusXM so that the artists themselves can also enjoy a variety of ad-free music. Along with music, artists will be able to enjoy sports, talk, comedy, and other radio genres. The Back to Live Tour will use Ram’s recent ad campaign “Spotlight” with Dave Grohl as well as a feature-film documentary called “What Drives Us,” to start the musical journey off. Ram is excited to offer fans a return to normalcy. The automaker is also excited to help artists get on their feet and reconnect with their fans. As the vice president of Stellantis Marissa Hunter said,

“Our Ram BandVan program first launched in 2018 and we are thrilled to activate the next phase of the initiative to help support musicians doing what they love and bringing their fans the performances that they have missed,” said North America Stellantis Vice President Marissa Hunter. “As the brand that is ‘Built to Serve,’ we share mutual values of hard work and dedication with these talented artists, and it is our pleasure to provide them reliable, comfortable, and spacious ProMaster vans, supporting their careers and helping them to reconnect with friends and fans across the country.”

A Breakdown of the 2021 Ram 1500’s Towing Capacities

Thursday, August 12th, 2021

Ram has been steadily increasing its presence in the pickup sector with new trim upgrades like the 2022 Ram 1500 Laramie and Rebel G/T and talk of its first all-electric pickup. As the auto industry moves toward electric vehicles, Ram is making sure it remains ahead of the competition both with its powerful pickups and its new innovations. Focusing on Ram’s pickups, we can look at the 2021 Ram 1500 to see what sets it apart from its competitors. One area where the 2021 Ram 1500 shines is with its towing capabilities. Depending on the engine and cab choice, 2021 Ram 1500 owners can reach a towing range between 6,290 pounds and 13,330 pounds. 

Minimum Towing Capacity of the 2021 Ram 1500

The 2021 Ram 1500 offers consumers a powerful pickup capable of almost any towing and hauling project. Choices in engine and cab can determine the towing capacity of the pickup. Optional package upgrades can also affect the amount of weight towed. Using base features and selections, the 2021 Ram 1500 can reach a minimum towing capacity of 6,290 pounds.

It should be noted that Ram recommends using a weight-distribution hitch when towing anything greater than 5,000 pounds. With that said, let’s take a look at the powerful 2021 Ram 1500 and how it can manage to tow such impressive amounts of weight.

The 2021 Ram 1500 comes available in several trims: the Tradesman, Big Horn/Lone Star, and the Laramie Longhorn/Limited. Each trim comes with a crew-cab configuration with a 3.21 axle ratio. Additionally, the pickup comes with a 6-ft 4-inch bed, four-wheel drive, and a 3.6L V6 engine. These configurations can be modified and interchanged to increase the towing capacity. Prices for the Tradesman trim starts at $41,000 MSRP (plus destination fee) and $58,000 MSRP (plus destination fee) for the Laramie Longhorn trim. 

Maximum Towing Capacity of the 2021 Ram 1500

The maximum towing capacity of the 2021 Ram 1500 is an impressive 13,300 pounds. This feat of towing strength can be reached with a configuration of four-wheel drive with an eTorque V8 engine alongside a quad cab and 6-ft-4 bed configuration. To reach such feats, the Tradesman and Big Horn/Lone Star trims are recommended. They offer the most powerful range for those looking to haul the heaviest of materials.

The second highest towing capacity for the 2021 Ram 1500 is 12,750 pounds and this can be reached with the Tradesman trim. A quad cab configuration with a 6-ft 4-inch bed, two-wheel drive, and a 5.7L Hemi V8 with eTorque. A max tow package can be included which provides 18-by-8-inch wheels, a 3.92:1 axle ratio, and a trailer-tow group. This trailer-tow group includes a class IV receiver hitch, trailer tow mirrors, and a trailer brake controller. Owners can opt for these packages for a more secure and higher-end tow capacity.

Towing capacity depends on the engine of which Ram offers five. Two transmission options are also available. Alongside the engine, the type of drive affects towing range. Four-wheel drive is the most optimal for those looking for higher-end tow ranges. The 2021 Ram 1500 offers consumers a powerful and versatile pickup. For those looking for a pickup that can haul and tow during just about any job, the 2021 Ram 1500 is the right choice.

Ram to release 2022 Ram 1500 BackCountry Edition

Friday, July 30th, 2021

Ram has been rolling out new trims for the 2022 Ram 1500 one after another. With its recent performance, it’s no wonder Ram is working to improve upon the iconic pickup. Having released the 2022 Ram 1500 Limited 10th Anniversary Edition in celebration of a decade of success, Ram is now focusing on another trim. This new trim is to be off-road-focused. It makes sense as Ram recently announced a GT upgrade package for the Ram 1500 Laramie and Rebel. Focusing more on off-road capabilities and performance, Ram is releasing the 2022 Ram 1500 BackCountry edition later in 2021.

 2022 Ram 1500 BackCountry Edition 

The all-new 2022 Ram 1500 BackCountry edition trim is to be based on the Ram 1500 Big Horn. The new Ram trim will combine Ram’s most popular packages to create a unique off-road pickup. Equipped with a four-wheel drive, the BackCountry trim will add the 4×4 Off-Road Group Package. This will include tow hooks, skid plates, off-road-tuned shocks, hill descent control, all-terrain tires, and a rear electronic locking differential. Ready to tackle any off-road obstacle, the 2022 Ram 1500 BackCountry is a tougher pickup than ever before.

Along with the Off-Road Group package, the off-road pickup will include Ram’s Bed Utility Group package. This will include upper adjustable tie-downs, a deployable bed step, a bed extender, in-bed LED lighting, and a spray-in bed liner.  

The 2022 Ram 1500 BackCountry will come available with either the standard 5.7L Hemi V-8 engine or the 5.7L Hemi V-8 engine with Ram’s eTorque mild hybrid system. 

Interior & Exterior of the 2022 Ram 1500 BackCountry

What makes the 2022 Ram 1500 BackCountry special is the interior and exterior. Inside the off-road pickup is a black interior with bucket seats. A 7-inch infotainment screen is situated in the center console (though an upgradeable 8.4-inch Uconncet screen may be available), and a BackCountry badge is displayed on the instrument panel. The off-road pickup also comes with Mopar all-weather slush mats. 

As for the exterior, this is where the 2022 Ram 1500 BackCountry pickup really shines. A combination of the Sport Appearance package and Night Edition gives the BackCountry trim a body-colored grille. Along with this are 18-inch black-painted wheels, black badges, black headlight bezels, black mirror caps, and black exhaust tips. The off-road pickup also gets running boards and a tonneau cover.

The 2022 Ram 1500 BackCountry edition will start at $41,780 MSRP (plus destination fee). The new off-road pickup will increase the versatility of the Ram 1500 series, furthering its success. It will be available in the fall of 2021.

Looking inside, consumers will notice an emphasis on comfort with G/T specific designs such as bucket seats with high bolsters. A unique G/T logo can also be found on the stitching. Additional features include a metal pedal kit, steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters, and a console-mounted performance shift. Another special treat offered inside these new pickups is the addition of performance pages. Ram is connecting these performance pages to the G/T’s Uconnect system. This will allow drivers to view information such as engine performance, 0-60 times, and G-forces.

The luxury look is completed inside the 2022 Ram 1500 Laramie G/T and Rebel G/T with all-weather floor mats from Mopar. As far as technology and infotainment go, the Laramie G/T and Rebel G/T will most likely offer the latest additions and improvements available to Ram. Also available is the addition of a Crew Cab configuration. This means up to 5 people can comfortably sit inside these luxury pickups.

The 2022 Ram 1500 Laramie G/T will come with a starting price of $55,480 MSRP (plus destination fee). The Rebel G/T will start at $55,375 MSRP (plus destination fee). These new pickups will offer the best in performance and luxury.
