2022 Ram 1500 Now in Trenton
The Ram 1500 is fast becoming the half-ton truck of choice in the Canadian market, thanks to its blend of high-end power, unmatched interior comfort, and class-leading levels of technology. The latest 2022 refresh of the range is now available for sale in Trenton, and here are the main talking points to look out for.
Powerful Options Under the Hood
There's no shortage of power available under the 2022 Ram 1500's hood, with a choice of four engine configurations available, most paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission and either rear-wheel or all-wheel drive.
First in line is the standard 3.6L V6 gas engine making 305 horsepower and 269lb-ft of torque, an excellent foundation to build on. An available 3.0L turbodiesel pushes the torque rating up to 480lb-ft, while a 5.7L V8 balances 395 horsepower with 410lb-ft.
But at the peak of the 1500's power ratings is a 6.2L V8 Hellcat engine available only in the TRX trim, delivering an incredible 702 horsepower and 650lb-ft to take pickup truck performance to an entirely new level.
Towing and Payload Capacity
For a truck in the half-ton class, the 2022 Ram 1500 boasts some impressive capability figures. The maximum payload capacity of 1,052kg is impressive enough, but the maximum tow rating hits a best-in-segment figure of 5,783kg.
As well as offering an impressive raw towing weight ability, the Ram 1500 makes hauling loads easier with advanced features including trailer brake control and electronic sway control. You can also add in an optional trailer view camera system which provides complete visibility around and behind the load, with images transmitted wirelessly to a panel on the interior console.
Interior and Technology
The 2022 Ram 1500 range includes comfort levels to suit every preference. At the entry-level, the Tradesman trim offers a straightforward interior with no unwanted frills to push the price up. But if you're looking for a more upscale experience there are plenty of options available. Highlights include infotainment touchscreens reaching up to 12" in size, smartphone integration through Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a Wi-Fi hotspot facility, and in-built navigation.
But the cabin isn't only blessed with advanced tech. Options including heated and ventilated seats, leather upholstery, and a panoramic sunroof take the Ram to upscale levels more often associated with a high-end SUV than a half-ton pickup.
Advanced Active Safety
Lastly, Ram has also built a deserved reputation for including an excellent range of active safety and driver assist systems into all their trucks, and the 2022 Ram 1500 doesn't disappoint. Key standard and available highlights include:
- Adaptive cruise control.
- Forward collision warnings with automatic emergency braking.
- Blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alerts.
- Lane departure warnings and switchable lane keep assist.
