2022 Ram HD
Luxury meets capability within the 2022 Ram HD 2500 and Ram HD 3500, with refreshed and refined touches. An updated Uconnect infotainment system adorns the dashboard, the Lone Star and Big Horn trims receiving new grille designs, and the new Silver Edition (available on the Lone Star and Big Horn trims), are just a few of the updates that drivers can look forward to when it comes to purchasing the 2022 Ram HD.
Avail. Engine Type
The 2022 Ram HD has three different engines available to choose from, giving buyers the opportunity to experience the power and thrill that suits their own unique and individual preferences. Standard on all trims of the 2500 is the 6.7L Hemi V8 engine (that provides best-in-class 410-horsepower and 429 lb-ft of torque with 17,450 lbs of towing capability for impressive power). The Cummins® Turbo Diesel I6 engine offers 370-horsepower and 850 lb-ft of torque on the 2500 and the 3500; which is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission for a responsive and powerful kick. The available 6.7L High-Output Cummins Turbo Diesel I6 engine is available for the 3500 and offers best-in-class torque and diesel towing capabilities with 1,075 lb-ft of torque, 37,090 lbs of towing capability, and the powerful 420-horsepower to back it.
Driving and Handling
Buyers can expect their vehicle to power through every terrain and adventure, as the 2022 Ram HD is an absolute workhorse, even with the standard trim and engine. It’s a smooth and comfortable truck that offers generous power even when it’s not towing something behind it. Added comfort can be found with the optional air suspension. If buyers have the opportunity to drive the Ram HD with the Cummins Turbo-Diesel engine, they can expect even more of this smooth and powerful capability. The torque feels infinite, even when towing something as massive as a camper behind it and it will never break a sweat while doing so. Opting for the off-road designed Power Wagon trim allows drivers to experience a brilliant off-road suspension system that includes disconnecting sway bars, a Warn winch, a 360-degree camera, and one of the more intimidating appearance packages Ram has to offer!
The 2022 Ram HD was made to steal the spotlight with its impressive face card. The new 2022 lineup allows for buyers to cater to their own unique preferences with six different grille options to choose from to add to the already muscular appearance it boasts. The colossal grille is nostalgically reminiscent of an 18-wheeler, with gorgeous curves throughout its exterior that give it the feel of a muscle car on a much larger scale. The Tradesman, Bighorn, and Laramie trims all feature a set of eight monotone colors to choose from; while the Power Wagon and the Limited Longhorn can come in eight monotone shades as well as eight two-tone shades (for the Power Wagon) and four two-tone options for the Limited trim.
The interior of this monster vehicle is just as big as one would expect and even more functional than ever. The 2022 Ram HD allows buyers to find the available seating that suits their specific and unique needs. There are three different seating configurations to provide ample space for cargo and passengers for every occasion: the Three-Across Rear Seating, Left Single Rear Seat Folded, and the All Rear Seat Folded. Drivers and passengers can enjoy the myriad of storage options, the sliding cup holder tray, and a new air filter system that comes standard in every Ram truck and filters 95 percent of air particulates. Available leather upholstery, leather-wrapped steering wheel options, automatic climate control, and even heated front and rear seats are all options buyers have to add to the already luxurious feel of their vehicle.
An updated and refreshed 5-inch touchscreen infotainment system (Uconnect) includes Bluetooth connectivity and a built-in backup camera for every journey. Within each 2022 Ram HD is a six-speaker audio system that brings everyone inside to their very own personalized concert and select trims have the availability to upgrade to the seventeen-speaker Harman Kardon Premium audio system that will leave buyers feeling like they put the concert on themselves. The upgraded 8.4-inch Uconnect system includes navigation, and the monster 12-inch touchscreen offers complete personalization with up to five user-profiles and simultaneous dual-phone connectivity for the convenience of the passenger. Safety features like the ParkSense Front and Rear Park Assist and the LaneSense Lane Departure Warning allow buyers to proceed with caution whenever they hit the road safely.
Safety Features and Warranty
The 2022 Ram HD 2500 and 3500 have trim options that include the Big Horn, the Laramie, the Limited Longhorn, and the Limited; while the Ram 2500 introduces the additional Power Wagon trim. Each trim comes with unique customizations like colorway options, technology, engine options, and towing capabilities; however, it is recommended to consider the Laramie as it has a unique mix of capability, space and luxury or the Power Wagon as it has unique features like the exclusive four-wheel drive, two-tone colorway options, and off-roading capabilities.
