The 2022 Dodge Ram interior is nothing short of luxury. With a capacity of 5-6 passengers, you can enjoy features such as cruise control, remote keyless entry, Bluetooth, and a 5-inch touchscreen multimedia system.
If you choose to add more features, you have the choice of a dual-panel moonroof, 360-degree camera system, lane departure warning, and more. This can all be done at your RAM dealership or online.
Your truck includes top-quality leather, wood accents, high trims, and the option of heated seats.
There are plenty of truck options at your dealership, but you may find that the Ram 1500 Limited 10th Anniversary Edition stands out. It has an updated color scheme of “Indigo and Sea Salt Grey” that comes with aluminum bezels.
Riding and Handling
The 2022 RAM 1500 provides a smooth ride with an optional four-wheel drive. Its base engine is a 3.6 liter V6/electric motor, but you can also choose from a 5.7 liter V8 and a 5.7 V8/electric motor.
With the base engine, the RAM truck has 305 horsepower, but with the other options, it has 395 horsepower. If you’re interested in more, the supercharged 6.2-liter V8 (TRX) gives 702 horsepower.
For any choice you make, you’ll get an 8-speed automatic transmission for any engine you decide on.
If your new truck comes with an eTourque system, you’ll find that you have improved acceleration and fuel economy. It uses a 48-volt motor/generator in place of a 12-volt alternator, which is more traditional.
Dodge Ram trucks provide many options for customizations so you get exactly what you’re looking for.
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) tests many vehicles each year to ensure their safety. It was founded in 1959, which was the same year Volvo introduced its three-point seat belt.
The IIHS tests include six crashworthiness tests, two front crash prevention tests, headlight testing, and more. In order to receive a Top Safety Pick, a vehicle must receive ratings of at least:
- “Good” in all six crashworthiness tests
- “Advanced/Superior” for both front crash collision tests
- “Acceptable/Good” for the headlight testing
The 2021 Ram 1500 met all of these requirements and was the only full-size truck recognized as a Top Safety Pick in 2021. Though these requirements change often, there is slight assurance offered when driving a Top Safety Pick vehicle.
With many truck options on the market, it can be hard to decide on the perfect new vehicle. RAM Trucks are luxurious, safe, and provide a smooth ride for any car lover.
