The 2022 Ram 1500 Pickup Truck Dominates the Competition
With a truck that has done everything right, it can be difficult to determine which model best fits a driver's wants and needs. Such is the conundrum with the 2022 Ram 1500--it is just too good. It offers a significantly nicer interior, supremely comfortable ride, and unmatched performance compared to the competition.
That said, Ram offers a wide variety of trim levels from which buyers can choose. The 2022 Ram 1500 is available in eight trim levels across Canada: Tradesman, Big Horn, Sport, Rebel, Laramie, Limited Longhorn, Limited, and TRX. Here is a look at some of the best models.
2022 Ram 1500 Tradesman - Capable and Budget-Friendly
While it is not the most outfitted Ram 1500 model available, the Tradesman is the most budget-friendly and still provides great capability. Starting at $46,945, drivers who do not need a ton of convenience and comfort features cannot go wrong with the Tradesman, which features a 3.6-litre V6 engine that delivers 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque.
2022 Ram 1500 Sport - The Best Full-Size Pickup Truck in Canada
The Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC) named the 2021 Ram 1500 Sport as the Best Full-Size Pickup Truck in Canada, and since the Sport was built exclusively for the Canadian market, that recognition just makes sense.
Starting at $63,995, the Ram 1500 Sport is a great mid-level trim configuration with plenty of features to keep drivers happy. Inside, the 1500 Sport features a 7.0-inch full-colour customizable in-cluster display centre, heated front seats and steering wheel, and Uconnect 5 multimedia centre with 12.0-inch touchscreen.
A truck built for Canadians also means it was built for Canadian terrain, and the 2022 Ram 1500 Sport features a class-exclusive Multilink Coil Spring Rear Suspension, which provides greater lateral stiffness and superior control. It also upgrades the power to a5.7-litre HEMI V8 that delivers 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque.
2022 Ram 1500 Rebel - The Right Mix of Features
For just $2,000 more than the 1500 Sport, the Rebel model adds on a number of capability features to help drivers tackle the roads less traveled. This includes front/rear Bilstein performance shocks, electric shift-on-the-fly part-time transfer case, electronic-locking differential, hill descent control, skid plates, and tow hooks.
2022 Ram 1500 TRX - A Supercharged, Off-Road Wonder
The 2022 Ram 1500 TRX is a super truck that produces more power, more torque, and more capability than any Ram 1500 before it. Outfitted with a supercharged 6.2-litre HEMI V8 Hellcat engine, the TRX delivers 702 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. In just 3.7 seconds, the TRX can rocket to 97 km/h, making it one of the fastest pickup trucks ever.
The TRX combines the Hellcat engine with 35-inch all-terrain tires, a performance hood with functional air scoop and heat extractors, gigantic 15.0-inch front brakes, and significant underbody plating. Inside, the TRX continues Ram's impeccable quality, delivering luxury and refinement with high-quality materials and a crystal-clear 12.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system.
