2022 RAM 1500 review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2022 Ram 1500?

The Ram 1500 is a full-size pickup truck with room for up to six and a wide lineup of trim levels. It’s targeted at rivals like the Ford F-150, Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and Toyota Tundra. The Ram separates itself from the competition with an interior in higher trims that wouldn’t look out of place in a luxury vehicle. 

A mild-hybrid V-6 drivetrain is standard, but a turbo-diesel V-6 and a selection of V-8 engines, including a 702-hp, supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 in the TRX trim, are also offered. All engines come with an eight-speed automatic transmission, and rear- and four-wheel-drive models are available. 

What’s New on the 2022 Ram 1500?

New Ram 1500 variants include a Limited 10th Anniversary Edition as well as Longhorn SouthFork, Laramie G/T, Rebel G/T and BackCountry models. A new cabin air filtration system is standard, and Big Horn and higher trims get the Uconnect 5 multimedia system. 

What Features in the 2022 Ram 1500 Are Most Important?

Standard features include:

  • Remote keyless entry
  • Air conditioning
  • Cruise control
  • 5-inch touchscreen multimedia system
  • Bluetooth connectivity

Available features include:

  • Four-corner air suspension
  • Dual-panel moonroof
  • 8.4- or 12-inch touchscreen multimedia system
  • Wireless device charging
  • 360-degree camera system
  • Forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking
  • Blind spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert
  • Lane departure warning
  • Adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go capability
  • Automatic high-beam headlights

Should I Buy the 2022 Ram 1500?

The Ram 1500 proves that a modern full-size pickup can be anything from a no-frills workhorse to a luxury-laden palace — and even a performance beast in the form of the 702-hp TRX. The truck’s high-end trim levels are pricey, though the same is true of this truck’s key rivals. Less expensive trims still deliver a great blend of utility, power, convenience features and user-friendly controls.

Buyer Beware

The truck itself is a great one and I do enjoy it. But buyer beware. Ram re4movea piece of software on some Ram pickups that eliminate the use of the phone button on the steering wheel and the two usb ports lose a lot of functions. You can't show Google maps from your phone on the screen. You cannot make the truck a hotspot due the feature being removed. check the window sticker for a credit at the end of the list of features.


Ram / poor transmission

Purchased a new 2022 Ram 1500. Truck has died while driving three times and has less than 3000 miles and two months old Very scary and dangerous.


2022 Ram Rebel Is Top Notch

I’ve driven Ford, Toyota, and Chevrolet, but this Ram is the best of them all. I went with the Rebel and got one of the last non-eTorque V8 Hemi’s. No dumb stop/start technology with this combination. Interior comfort is better than many cars. Exterior styling is great too. Plenty of power from the 5.7 although it is a little on the thirsty side. Even with an off-road emphasis and 33” all-terrain tires, the ride is very quiet and comfortable. Ram trucks are a little on the pricey side, but Ram still offers some pretty decent incentives at times. You do get what you pay for. Very satisfied with my purchase.
