Ram Debuts Three New Trucks Including Incredible 2022 Ram 1500 TRX Ignition Edition
Texas loves its pickup trucks. In fact, the Lonestar state typically tops the list for most pickups sold each year. That is why Ram is debuting three new Ram 1500 trucks at the State Fair of Texas. One of the trucks will probably sell out quite quickly, but all will be popular. The 2022 Ram TRX Ignition Edition will be limited to only 875 vehicles. Ram also unveiled the 2022 Longhorn SouthFork and the Ram 1500 (RAM)RED that is designed to raise money for Bono’s RED charity.
“Buyers demand a good-looking truck with easy-to-use features. They tell us their Ram trucks are an extension of their personality, and they want to stand out from the crowd,” said Mike Koval Jr., Ram Brand Chief Executive Officer – Stellantis. “Ram customers demand even more and our new models deliver that with a selection of exterior and interior appointments and content for even greater personalization.”
