It is that time of year again folks. As spring draws near, automakers are starting to release more information on their 2022 model year products. And while we’ve already heard some information of this sort from the folks over at Stellantis, the team over at TFLTruck have reported on something that should interest Ram truck buyers. More specifically, they have details related to the automaker’s NTEA Work Truck presentation, including some new info about the 2022 Ram 1500. Here’s what you need to know.
The 2022 Ram 1500 lineup won’t look all that different from the 2021 offerings, but we already knew that this was going to be the case. That said, Ram did share a few interesting tidbits during the NTEA show. The most notable of these changes coming to the 2022 Ram 1500 has to do with a new Trailer 360 View camera setup. Not unlike the setup available on Ford’s lineup of trucks, this system utilizes additional cameras that customers will mount up to their trailers. The Ram kit consists of four cameras, camera mounts, cable mounts, additional wiring, and a control module. The system is said to be able to accommodate trailers up to 53 feet in length, which is mighty impressive in its own right. This package will also be available for the HD lineup of Ram Trucks, which are more likely to be pulling trailers of that size.
Perhaps spurred on by the current global pandemic, Stellantis has also confirmed that the 2022 Ram 1500 will now come as standard with a new air filtration system. This upgraded cabin air system will now feature N95 bio filters, which is clearly a massive improvement. For those looking to get into a budget-friendly truck, the Ram Classic has also been confirmed to live on through the 2022 model year. It might be an aging machine, but customers aren’t quite ready to let it go yet it seems.
The automaker wasn’t ready to share any information about the powertrain lineup for the 2022 Ram 1500, though we don’t expect major changes over 2021. Rumors have suggested that 2022 will bring an updated exterior to the truck, by way of a mild mid-cycle refresh. As we continue to trudge our way through 2021, expect to hear more updates about the upcoming 2022 Ram Truck lineup. What sort of things would you like to see Stellantis change about the truck? Let us know down below.
