With the 2022 model year upon us, we are now getting our first look at two new special editions for the 2022 Ram 1500. The two new special editions will join a new less complex Ram 1500 lineup, which will include the new Limited 10th Anniversary Edition, sporty G/T Package for Rebel and Laramie trims, and the off-road-oriented Big Horn BackCountry package. The two new special editions are centered around the TRX performance off-roader and the ultra-premium Limited models.
The all-new 2022 Ram 1500 TRX Ignition Edition (dealer code TRX), follows in the footsteps of last year’s TRX Launch Edition. Showcased in an Ignition Orange exterior color, the TRX stands out from the rest of the TRX lineup and is sure to be a head-turner. Based on the premium TR Level 2 Equipment Group, the Ignition Edition features new 18-inch machine face black wheels, special exterior graphics, cargo tie-downs, spray-in bed liner, and Mopar bed step.
Inside, the Ignition Edition features Copperhead Orange stitching and embroidered TRX logos on the seatbacks. An orange center console badge, a Copper carbon-fiber accent package, along with special orange tweeters highlight the interior color scheme. The 12-inch infotainment touchscreen now supports the much faster Uconnect 5 software. A Heads-Up Display (HUD), panoramic sunroof, and Mopar all-weather slush mats which feature orange Ram’s head logos instead of the traditional red are included in the package. The optional Pedestrian Emergency Braking feature is standard on the Ignition Orange package.
Ram has yet to officially announce pricing as of the writing of this article. The Ignition Orange package will be available in both the United States and Canada. Ignition Orange was previously featured on limited runs of the 2017 Ram 1500 Sport and 2019 Ram 1500 Classic Express.
The second new limited edition package is the 2022 Ram 1500 Limited (RED) Edition. The (RED) Organization is a non-profit that raises money to fight AIDS and now, COVID-19. To help support those important causes Ram has created this Limited-based special edition.
Based on the Limited Crew Cab with the 5-foot, 7-inch box configuration, the (RED) Edition comes with the customer’s choice of 5.7-liter HEMI V8 in both non-hybrid and eTorque mild-hybrid configurations. Both HEMI engines deliver 395 horsepower and 410 lb.-ft. of torque. Or if you prefer diesel power, the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 will also be available with 260 horsepower and 480 lb.-ft. of torque and a 22 city / 32 highway / 26 combined MPG rating.
The (RED) Edition features a red R-A-M text on the grille, unique (R-A-M) RED door badging, and a (RED) badge on the center console lid.
Again, pricing has yet to be announced for the Limited (RED) Edition. The (RED) Edition will be available in both the United States and Canada.
