    Ram has always been a leader in the world of powerful pickup trucks. Visit any busy work site or travel the freeway of a heavily agricultural area, and you can be sure to see some Rams. Their impressive capabilities make them terrific work trucks, and their durable materials make them ready for nearly anything. Of course, Ram has moved into the sphere of more luxury trucks in recent eras, adding modern features like smartphone connectivity and soft interior materials. So in 2019, when they made the Ram 1500 Classic, one can only assume they wanted to reconnect with their roots and remind the world that they always have and always will make impressive workhorses of vehicles. The 2022 Ram 1500 Classic certainly continues that legacy.

    With a sophisticated suspension, show-stopping capabilities, and powerful engine options, the 2022 Ram 1500 Classic is certainly worth a look if you’re in need of a serious pickup. But don’t worry—it didn’t skip on the more luxury features Ram now includes in its high-end trucks. Those who need Internet on the road or want to speak to their home’s Amazon Alexa can still do so, even when towing a massive trailer behind this truck. And its cabin is comfortable enough for passengers to enjoy long rides in, making it very versatile. Here’s a look at all this beast has to offer.

  • Capacity & Performance

    The 2022 Ram 1500 Classic is ready for nearly all your towing and hauling needs with a 1,810-lb max payload and a max towing capacity of 10,620 lbs. So whether you need to haul massive equipment for a work site, have a moving company, or do bulky item delivery, it’s got you covered. And if you want to tow the family boat or camper out to the lake for some weekend fun, this truck can easily do it.

    Engine Options

    The 2022 Ram 1500 Classic has two engine options: the 5.7L HEMI V8 and the 3.6L Pentastar V6. When equipped with the 5.7L HEMI V8, it enjoys an impressive 395 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque, along with a fuel economy of 15 MPG in the city and 21 MPG on the highway. When equipped with the 3.6L Pentastar V6, it gets a nice 305 hp, 269 lb-ft of torque, and a fuel economy of 17 MPG in the city and 25 MPG on the highway.

    Performance

    Overall, it’s rich with features that improve its efficiency and performance, like the active shutter grills made for extreme airflow situations. When the air conditioning operates at high levels, these grills redirect air away from the interior and around the vehicle to boost aerodynamics. The truck is also known for its lightweight frame, which is made possible by the fact that Ram chose to use lightweight down-gauged steel where heavyweight steel wasn’t needed. This lighter frame means easier handling and a more fuel-efficient vehicle. Finally, its special suspension facilitates a smooth ride, even when pushing the truck’s towing and hauling limits. The 2022 Ram 1500 Classic was carefully designed to allow for impressive towing and hauling capabilities without the downsides often associated with heavy-performance trucks.

  • Infotainment & Technology

    While the 2022 Ram 1500 Classic is ready to be put to work, its interior reveals a sophisticated and technologically-advanced suite of features that practically make its cabin a mobile office and entertainment center. Staying connected with the office or home is easy in this truck.

    Connectivity

    First, it’s got an available full-color 7-inch driver information digital cluster display. This lets you see information about your vehicle and review important levels. You can also customize the cluster to show exactly what you want, helping you monitor the wellness of your vehicle at all times.

    The truck’s available Uconnect 4C NAV system with an 8.4-inch touchscreen is loaded with entertainment and information features that are easy to use and control. It is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, so you can sync up your smartphone and see all your favorite apps populate on the screen. It also has an available 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, essentially turning your truck’s cabin into a workspace where you can check emails and fill out virtual forms on the go. Plus, it has built-in Alexa, so you can do things like manage shopping lists and control smart home devices right from your vehicle.

    Hands-Free Features

    You’ll also find on the Uconnect screen the climate controls, as well as SiriusXM radio and the backup camera view. Its turn-by-turn navigation system ensures you always know where you’re going, and its hands-free calling features let you connect with friends, family, and colleagues without taking your hands off the steering wheel. When you don’t want to take any calls or be distracted, you can activate the system’s convenient do not disturb feature, which will silence notifications. Most of these features can be turned on and controlled using the voice command feature in the car, so you don’t need to touch a button. With today’s busy pace of life, having a fully-connected vehicle is essential, and the makers of the 2022 Ram 1500 Classic clearly took that into consideration when designing this truck.

  • Safety

    Top-of-the-line safety features are important in any vehicle but become increasingly critical in performance vehicles that are towing and hauling—especially in off-road environments. Fortunately, the 2022 Ram 1500 Classic does not disappoint in the driver assist department.

    Stability Control Features

    This truck features hill start assist, which prevents the vehicle from rolling downhill when you switch from the brake to gas while on an incline. It’s also equipped with electronic stability control, which detects and reduces traction loss, improving the vehicle’s stability on a variety of surfaces and road conditions. One feature that’s particularly useful for a pickup with these capabilities is the trailer sway control, which minimizes the swaying of anything you are towing to improve safety.

    Vehicle Monitoring/Driver Assistance Technology

    As for more common features for everyday life, the truck has the available ParkSense rear park assist system, which helps you get into tight parking spots. It also has available blind spot monitoring that notifies you when someone is in your blind spot and is especially useful during lane changes, along with rear cross-traffic alert, which notifies you of objects and people behind you when you’re backing up.

    The available automatic high-beam headlights are a great asset to anyone who regularly drives outside the city where roads are not well-lit. These headlights automatically turn on in low-light settings, and when they sense oncoming vehicles, they shut off. The available adaptive cruise control will help you keep a safe distance from other cars, and the automatic emergency braking will activate the brakes to prevent a collision. All in all, this vehicle is loaded with safety features that can give a driver peace of mind under most conditions. If you plan on pushing the 2022 Ram 1500 Classic to its limits, you’ll be glad that these features have your back.
