The 2022 Ram 1500 is One of the Best Diesel Trucks Available

As one of the most iconic pickup trucks, the 2022 Ram 1500 continues to sit atop the automotive throne. The light-duty pickup has received numerous accolades and awards highlighting both its performance and efficiency. These awards like Texas Truck of the Year provide consumers with clear information about the best pickup trucks available. Aside from its tough combustion engine trucks, Ram has also been focusing on its all-new 2024 Ram 1500 EV. The automaker has teased several concept sketches as well as specs, but no definitive information has been released yet. While we wait for more info, we’ll take a closer look at the 2022 Ram 1500. The pickup truck comes available with a range of engines, but we thought we’d focus on the diesel engine. Many trucks offer diesel engines, but we’ll see what makes the Ram 1500 one of the best diesel trucks on the market.

The 2022 Ram 1500 is A Top Diesel Truck

The 2022 Ram 1500 has continued to be a top pickup truck in the sector given its performance and capability. As one of Ram’s most popular trucks, the Ram 1500 offers consumers a lot of versatility while remaining affordable. There are higher-level trims that improve luxury and capability, but even with the base Ram 1500 owners will have no trouble having their needs met. The base 2022 Ram 1500 starts at an MSRP of  $35,900 (plus destination fee). It comes equipped with a variety of engine options like a 6.2L V8, a 5.7L V8, and a 3.6L V6 to name a few. These are all impressive and provide high performance, but we’ll focus on the diesel engine.

The 2022 Ram 1500 offers owners a 3.0L eco-diesel V6 engine that delivers 260 horsepower and 480lb-ft of torque. This engine is one of the best in class and as such, it provides owners with a towing capacity of up to 12,560 pounds. The payload is also 2,320 pounds. Ram made sure that its eco-diesel would be highly efficient so the V6 offers 22 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway. Ram has also provided several driver-assist features to ensure towing is made easy. These include a trailer 360-degree surround view camera and trailer reverse steering control.

One of the best features of the Ram 1500 is its interior. Spacious and comfortable, the light-duty pickup truck offers one of the most luxurious interiors in its sector. This is further enhanced by trims like the Limited, Laramie, and Big Horn. These trims equip the truck with premium leather and genuine wood accents. They also provide heated and ventilated seats as well as a panoramic sunroof. Another element that separates the 2022 Ram 1500 from other pickup trucks is its safety features. With features like a digital rearview mirror, blind-spot monitoring, electronic stability control, and electronic roll mitigation, owners can rest assured that they remain safe whether they’re towing and hauling or just doing everyday driving.
