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.

Terrible Espirience.

Purchased a new 2022 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel, engine cracked at 6k mile, take me 7 months to have replaced engine, but the in time to I'm waiting for new engine truck has 29k mile and has died, start push button do nothing, I pay for towing truck to bring this truck to Diler ship, this is my first Ram and VERY possibly LAST. From 14 months that I have this truck, almost 4 months truck stay in dealership and CRYSLER don't provide any loaner vehicle and don't want to compensate this, really terrible experience . My wife drive at JEEP Grand Cheroke Limited , I leased same cars for last couple years, now big chance that I switched this car to other brand, lease end at Feb 24, 2024.


Trouble the first day

First day of owning the 12 inch screen went dark and I useable. Became intermittent. Took just over a year for the dealership to fix with multiple trips. 11000 miles now and appears ok. Now I love the truck. .


UConnect message to return to dealership for servi

the only issue with this truck is the UConnect it's been back to the dealership 4 times .. still not fixed... dealer has been great trying to help.
