2022 Ram 1500 Interior

Interior & Exterior Features Comparison

The 2022 Ram 1500 gets a modern yet rugged appearance thanks to its stunning exterior design that brings an array of finishes and premium offerings. Although the base trim has black accents, the remaining trims benefit from body colour, black powder coated, and chrome finishes to stand out. You will also find many premium exterior offerings across the lineup, such as LED lighting, auto-dimming power-folding mirrors, trim-specific features, and more. Inside the cabin, you will find heavy-duty vinyl upholstery as standard to withstand the job site's needs, while higher trims benefit from loads of luxurious offerings. Notable luxurious options of the higher trims consist of premium leather-faced upholstery, ventilated and heated front and rear seats, luxury floor mats, and a heated perforated leather-wrapped steering wheel.

The exterior styling of the Ram 1500 Classic maintains the traditional Ram styling that the Ram 1500 had in the previous generation. This year's Ram 1500 Classic also shares similar exterior finishes to the Ram 1500, but it doesn't get many of the premium options of the Ram 1500. Inside the cabin, you will find the same heavy-duty vinyl upholstery as the Ram 1500 as standard, while higher trims only get cloth upholstery since leather isn't an option. Exclusive to the Warlock top trim level, you will find a leather-wrapped steering wheel, rear power sliding window, and premium door trim panels.

Technology Features Comparison

For the 2022 model year, the Ram 1500 gets an array of outstanding technology that puts it ahead of the competition. As standard offerings, the Ram 1500 has technology options like a 5-inch touchscreen, 3.5-inch in-cluster display, ParkView rear backup camera, push-button start, and hands-free communication with wireless streaming audio. With the higher trims, you can expect to find either an 8.4-inch or 12-inch touchscreen, 7-inch customizable in-cluster display, power-adjustable pedals with memory, SiriusXM radio, Ram Connect connected services, and a wireless charging pad.

The Ram 1500 Classic shares the same offerings as the standard technology options of the Ram 1500, except for the hands-free communication, which is a feature that becomes standard a trim up from the base, and push-button start is not available for the Ram 1500 Classic. However, the higher trims can have the 8.4-inch touchscreen, and the top Warlock trim is the only trim to have the 7-inch customizable in-cluster display.

Engine Options & Performance Comparison

With the 2022 Ram 1500, five engine configurations are available, including the standard 3.6-litre Pentastar V6 with eTorque that delivers 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque + 90 lb-ft of launch torque. For more performance, you can opt for the 5.7-litre HEMI V8 engine, which is available with or without the eTorque mild-hybrid system, giving you an increased output of 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque. The eTorque-equipped 5.7-litre HEMI V8 also gets additional launch torque of 130 lb-ft to make accelerating from a stop with a trailer effortless. For diesel enthusiasts, you can get the Ram 1500 with a 3.0-litre EcoDiesel V6, delivering 260 horsepower and an impressive 480 lb-ft of torque. As an exclusive TRX-only engine option, the 6.2-litre supercharged HEMI V8 provides a best-in-class output of 702 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque.

On the other hand, the Ram 1500 Classic gets two engine options for the 2022 model year, including a standard engine across the lineup. The standard engine option for the Ram 1500 Classic is the 3.6-litre Pentastar V6, which delivers the same output as the Ram 1500 of 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque. Similarly, the optional 5.7-litre HEMI V8 engine is available across the lineup, providing the same output of 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque as the regular Ram 1500. However, the Ram 1500 Classic doesn't offer the e-Troque mild-hybrid system on either engine.
