With the first initial batch of the 2022 Ram 1500 reaching dealers over the past couple of weeks, RAM has now opened its popular Build & Price configurator on RamTrucks.com.
In its fourth model year, the fifth-generation Ram 1500 comes into 2022 with several changes. Despite keeping the same overall handsome looks inside and out for 2022, there are several new package changes, the addition of the latest Uconnect 5 infotainment software, and even more towing technology.
Kicking off with the 2022 Ram 1500 Big Horn (Lone Star in Texas) BackCountry offers a choice of two different 5.7-liter HEMI V8 options with or without the eTorque mild-hybrid system, a body-color grille surround, black two-tone exterior paint, black-accents (badging, exhausts, headlamps, running boards, and mirror caps), tonneau cover, the popular Bed Utility Group (spray-in bed liner, center-mounted deployable bed step, and cargo divider) and Off-Road Group (electronic locking rear axle, heavy-duty shock absorbers, skid plates for the front suspension, steering gear and transfer case, hill-descent control, Off-Road pages, tow hooks, and all-terrain or on/off-road tires).
Adding even more sportiness to the 2022 Ram 1500 lineup, the new G/T Package for Rebel and Laramie models gives Crew Cab models with the 5-foot, 7-inch bed configurations a sport performance hood, black grille, G/T decals, a Mopar cold-air intake, and cat-back exhaust. Inside, bucket seats with high bolsters, a new flat-bottom steering wheel with enhanced handgrips and aluminum paddle shifters, performance-oriented floor shifter, performance screens, all-weather floor mats, and a metal pedal kit.
Replacing the Limited Longhorn 10th Anniversary Edition from last year, the 2022 Ram 1500 Limited Longhorn SouthFork includes a multi-function tailgate, deployable bed step, spray-in bed liner, metal pedal kit, and Falken Wildpeak All-Terrain tires. The Bed Utility Group (adjustable cargo tie-down hooks, LED box lighting, and cargo divider) is also included. Longhorn SouthFork features an exclusive Mountain Brown interior color, standard bucket seats, and suede door bolsters with leather insert and laser filigree speaker detail.
There is also the addition of the new 2022 Ram 1500 Limited 10th Anniversary Edition. It features an exclusive Blue Shade exterior color, multi-function tailgate, cold air intake, cold end exhaust, unique badging, and 22-inch polished wheels. Inside, the 1500 Limited 10th Anniversary Edition features unique Indigo and Sea Salt quilted leather seats, instrument panel, console and door inserts, suede headliner, visors and A-pillar, a 10th Anniversary console badge, and cluster splash screen, aluminum Litho bezels, jeweled shifter knob, metal pedal kit, and a 19-speaker Harman Kardon audio system.
The all-new 2022 Ram 1500 TRX Ignition Edition, 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.
One of the biggest changes for 2022, is the introduction of the Uconnect 5 system as standard equipment on Ram 1500 Big Horn (Lone Star) models and above. The Uconnect 5 software is four times faster with three times more memory, features Wi-Fi capability and tow-specific navigation, and brings flexibility that allows the system to continuously evolve to offer new content, features, and services.
A new Trailer Hitch Light is now included in Trailer Tow Group and includes four LED lights that provide clear, crisp light from directly above the trailer hitch. Ram 1500 also gets a new Clean Air System on all 2022 Ram 1500 models that filters 95-percent of air particulates. It makes the Ram 1500 the cleanest cabin air in a RAM ever separates out pollen, allergens, and bacteria.
In addition to the Limited 10th Anniversary Edition and TRX Ignition Edition exclusive colors, there is a new color called Harvest Sunrise (available on Tradesman, Big Horn (Lone Star), Rebel, Laramie, and Limited Longhorn). Delmonico Red is now available on the Rebel.
