2022 RAM 1500 Classic Express
All things considered, a mid-size truck with a decent towing capacity was missing in the RAM catalogue, and the 2022 RAM 1500 Classic Express fills the space with flying colours. The 1500 Classic Express is considered as one of the best entry-level trucks in its category.
For all we can see, there are no significant changes from the 2021 edition to the 2022 1500 Classic Express. However, the main difference is under the hood, as the 2022 model can tow more weight.
The ideal car you’re looking for depends a lot on what you do, and consumers have advised that the Ram 1500 Classic Express is a reliable machine with horsepower starting at 305 hp, which passes the test of 0 to 100km/h in less than 7.1 seconds. An impressive performance for a vehicle that can also tow about 4,835kg.
The 2022 Classic Express is delivered with a 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine with an eight-speed transmission for the entry versions and a 5.7L HEMI V8 with an eight-speed transmission for the higher range. You’ll be able to cover more than 800 kilometres with a full tank. It’s considerably more than the 2021 model.
Driving in town with the Classic Express is 14.5L/100km and driving on highways is 10.2L/100km, making this truck one the most economical trucks.
Exterior and Interior Design
Dodge RAM enthusiasts are mostly looking for a big truck that can do the distance and go with the flow, and the 2022 Classic Express truck is giving that precise look. Robust and chunky with some glossy parts here and there, the Classic Express RAM can hold up to six passengers, depending on the type of cab you choose.
Inside, it feels spacious for the driver and every passenger alike. You can fold the backseat in a second to free some much needed space when you transport some cargo. For the rest, there are automatic interior lights and windows for every seat and some heated seats for the winter season.
Safety and Infotainment
We’ve noticed that some key features of the new car safety were missing while driving the 2022 Classic Express. There’s indeed no forward collision signal, no line detector and no sensors for parking.
The technology in the vehicle is efficient but rather classic, with a nice Uconnect display from 12.7cm to 21.33cm providing all modern commodities (GPS, Apple CarPlay, and others).
Pricing and Verdict
The 2022 RAM 1500 Classic Express starts at $43,935 with a Regular Cab (3 passengers), then goes to $47,935 (Quad Cab) to $50,635 (Crew Cab).
Although this truck lives in the shadow of all the beloved RAM 1500 Classic, the Classic Express has a lot to offer and will gather interest among the people looking for a mid-size truck that can tow about 4,835kg.
