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.

AMAZING truck!

This is my 3rd Ram and my 5th Chrysler product. I never thought I would own a Chrysler product. I have had 2 Ram 3500's (13 and 19) and instead of purchasing a 3rd Jeep product, we purchased a 1500 instead. What a badass truck! Incredibly quiet, smooth, and powerful. The E-Torque needs a firmware update but adds a lot to the overall off the line performance. The mileage at 1500 miles is 22MPG at 75 MPH on hilly roads in NM. I was impressed. The mileage was better than our Jeep GC would have gotten with the 3.6 L in it. We opted for the Limited and do not regret it. The sound system is much better than my 3500 with the "same" system in it. The split tailgate is amazing. I thought it was a novelty but it is amazing. The rear seat has more legroom than any SUV we were looking at and is really comfortable. It was expensive but no more than any other fully loaded truck.

2022 Lonestar 1500 etorque 3.6 not efficient

I have the 2022 ram lonestar 1500 etorque 3.6 the truck is averaging 21.7 roundtrip 42 miles HWY. each day what a disappointment for me it uses very high rpm's how does this equal better mileage or performance like the 2013 3.6 motor better mileage and lower rpm's, etorque has NO POWER. And finally it has a very firm ride kind of bouncy firm, no bueno. Will keep it until I can trade it off and get an F150 XLT LOL...
