What's New for the 2022 Ram 1500 Truck

One of the best things about a new year is all the new vehicle models. Ram 1500 lovers will find new tech, new trim and more fun in 2022!

Because of the extended semiconductor chip issues and other parts and labor shortages, most automakers very recently switched over to 2022 models. In many past years, the model years switched after plant upgrades or changeover occurred in late summer. Ram 1500 aficionados will find there is plenty to be excited about for the 2022 Ram 1500.

New Technology in the 2022 Ram 1500

Nearly every person with a pickup truck tows something at some point while they own their truck. The 2022 Ram 1500 has a new Trailer Hitch Light. The new light is included in Trailer Tow Group. The Trailer Hitch Light has four LED lights that provide light from directly above the trailer hitch. The new light should help make it easier to hook up after a long day of boating, or in the early morning hours when you are leaving a campground! The light should also make life easier for construction crews, landscape crews and everyone who has to pull a trailer frequently.

The new Uconnect 5 system is standard on Ram 1500 Big Horn models and above. The new infotainment system is four times faster. The system comes with a 12-inch touchscreen and is designed to be easily personalized, putting all of your important information at the touch of a finger.

Ram has also upgraded its air filtration system to provide cleaner air in the cabin. The Ram Clean Air System is standard on all 2022 Ram 1500 models. The new cabin filters eliminate 95% of air particulates like pollen and other allergens.
