The all-new 2022 Ram 1500 is set for another mid-cycle refreshment. The 2019 Ram 1500 came as the new-gen model so we won’t be seeing significant upgrades in the next few years. Still, there is no need for drastic changes at the moment. Ram 1500 is one of the most popular pickup trucks in the world. Moreover, this model delivers it all.
That includes amazing appearance, great performances, hybrid powertrain, and a very modern interior. On top of that, Ram 1500 is very customizable thanks to its trim levels and cab configurations. Thanks to that, you can choose between regular workhorse to a premium pickup truck with SUV-like characteristics.
Ram 1500 Exterior Changes
As we said, the 2022 Ram 1500 shouldn’t get significant upgrades. Whatsoever, there is not that much to be changed at the moment. This pickup truck looks impressive and its current design is relatively fresh. Still, Ram will continue to deliver lighter frames so the new model will be lighter than its predecessor. As you probably know, Ram 1500 is the very first pickup with the front air dam. Crosshair grille was amazing but it is long gone now.
Instead, the new six-sided grille will be available on 2021 and 2022 models. Ram will focus on refreshments such as new exterior paints. There are up to ten different colors at the moment. Most likely, the manufacturer will replace some of the aging colors for new ones. Also, expect more standard equipment and a couple of new optional amenities. As for the design changes, small modifications on the front fascia and small bodywork improvements are in the works.
The interior of the all-new 2022 Ram 1500 will also get small changes and updates. However, the manufacturer will update each trim level, which is great. On the other hand, most of the trim levels will get almost the same improvements. That includes more technology, improved comfort, and a new infotainment system.
An 8-inch display is offered as a standard and a 12-inch unit is optional. The base trim level is solid in every category so if you need more luxury, you’ll have to open your pockets and buy one of the upper trim levels. Of course, expect new driver-assistance aids. Again, these aids will be optional on the base Ram 1500 model.
The upcoming 2022 Ram 1500 will once again offer great performances. This pickup truck is so reliable and it provides superb capabilities. Normally, the difference will be made thanks to a hybrid powertrain or a high-performance version such as TRX. The regular model offers a 3.6-liter V6 gasoline engine. This unit is producing 305 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque.
A 5.7-liter Hemi V8 will be optional one more time. This more potent output delivers 395 hp and 310 lb-ft of twisting power. As for the hybrid version, Ram will deploy its e-Torque system. This system combines standard 3.6-liter with an electric motor and battery pack. Total output is rated at around 400 horses. Normally, Ram 1500 Hybrid will also arrive with astonishing fuel efficiency and solid all-electric driving range.
2022 Ram 1500 Release Date and Price
The new model will get a small jump in price. The approaching 2022 Ram 1500 will cost around $30,000 which isn’t drastic price change at all. Hybrid version will cost around $35,000 and upper trim levels from $40,000 to $70,000. Ram 1500 TRX will also arrive and this performance-oriented version will rival Ford’s Raptor variant. Ram will release more details closer to the arrival date, which is later next year.
