A Look at the Unique New Ford 2022 RAM 1500 Trucks

Class-Exclusive Reclining Rear Seat

The reclining rear seat is a significant new feature for 2022 RAM 1500 trucks 2022, and it is a giant leap forward for the truck’s versatility and convenience. The seat can be adjusted to three positions: down flat, tilted back at a 45-degree angle, or fully upright. While the first two positions are significant for loading cargo or stretching out while on the road, the upright position is perfect for the times you want to sit up and enjoy a view while you travel. When you are not using it, the seat can be folded down either flat or at a 20-degree angle to provide additional space to store luggage or other items that would easily get lost in all that legroom.

Multifunction Tailgate

The 2022 Ram 1500 Trucks have multifunction tailgates that will open to varying heights depending on the task at hand. They can extend to an 8-inch height for more effortless loading and unloading of smaller items and a 12-inch height for more versatile storage options.

The tailgate will automatically rise for the driver when the proximity sensor activates, allowing for a hands-free approach to the truck’s bed. The system also allows for the tailgate to be opened even when there are cargo hooks connected to it, giving you a convenient means of closing the tailgate while still having your cargo hooks in place. This helps protect your load from any unexpected movement while you are driving.

New eTorque Mild Hybrid System

The new system uses an electric motor, which is connected to the transmission, to provide additional torque when you need it. It is called eTorque because it allows for torque at low speeds and moves your car forward. The system uses an electric motor instead of an alternator or generator, so there is no belt noise as you drive. And since it is near the rear axle, it can provide extra torque to help with acceleration and passing maneuvers without adding weight or powertrain complexity. The eTorque system also helps fuel economy by using regenerative braking when you let off the accelerator pedal or come to a complete stop.

So when you are driving on the highway and need more power to pass someone, press the button on your steering wheel, and all of a sudden, you will get more torque available for acceleration. You do not have to downshift or anything—you get more power instantly. The same thing happens when you take your foot off the gas pedal coming down a steep hill—the system uses regenerative braking to keep from losing speed as quickly as usual because it is not wasting energy by spinning your wheels.

Night Eye LED Headlamps and Tail Lamps

The new 2022 RAM 1500 trucks have an updated headlight system. The new LED Headlamps are designed to give you better visibility at night or during bad weather conditions. They feature a brighter light output, which means they will be easier to see in the dark. The tail lamp also has a new design, making it more radiant. It also has built-in LED lights that help with visibility even further when driving in bad weather conditions or at night. This feature is beneficial for drivers traveling on unlit roads or through rural areas not equipped with streetlights.

New Active-Filtration System

The 2022 RAM 1500 Trucks have a new active-filtration system. The air filtration system focuses on improving the air quality in the cabin with a new style of filtration that will clean the air while you drive. This filtration system uses a unique system to trap 95% of dust, pollen, and other harmful pollutants before reaching the interior of the vehicle, ensuring that only clean air is vented into the cabin to provide a healthier, more comfortable environment for you and your passengers.

The new filtration system could be especially beneficial for those who suffer from allergies or asthma and those who are just sensitive to poor air quality.

Uconnect® 5C Infotainment System

The new Uconnect 5C is a hands-free touch screen that makes driving safer and more convenient. With a simple screen swipe, you can access your music library, control your phone calls and text messages, and use vehicle sensors to help you stay aware of your surroundings. It can even sync your phone, so you can use voice commands instead of touching buttons on the screen. And with an optional 4G LTE connection lets you use in-car apps such as Pandora, iHeartRadio, Twitter, and Facebook with an available connection that keeps you connected while on the road.
