2022 RAM 1500 Classic SLT - Know Your Trim
In the pickup truck world, nothing says “classic” better than a RAM 1500. The RAM 1500 reached the roads for the first time in 1981 and remained one of the most influential pickup trucks in the market. Perhaps, the secret to its longevity is to get younger and brisker with every new edition. Here’s what to expect from the new 2022 RAM 1500 Classic SLT.
Performance and Driveability
All models in this trim can come with a 3.6L V6 or a 5.7L V8 engine. The tank capacity is 98.4L, enough for a journey of 1,046km. The automatic eight-speed transmission is standard across this trim. However, the 5.7 V8 engine comes with an eight-speed Automatic 8HP70 Transmission (DFD).
It runs about 10km/L, the average for vehicles of this size. It has 260 lb-ft of torque and 305 horsepower.
Pickup trucks are always very spacious, and the 2022 RAM 1500 Classic SLT lives up to the tradition. It can take up to six passengers, and there’s plenty of room for everyone. All seats are heated, and the temperature is controlled via a central climate system. There’s also an option for a leather-wrapped steering wheel.
The upholstery is made of high-end cloth, and all seats are comfortable and ergonomic enough for long journeys. The standard sound system can be upgraded to a seven-speaker Alpine Premium sound system.
Tech and Safety Features
The new 2022 RAM 1500 SLT is as classic as it can be, but it doesn’t mean it doesn’t have some cutting-edge technology in it. It comes with a top-notch infotainment system, with an optional one-year subscription for SiriusXM. All models come with a 5.0-inch touchscreen display equipped with UConnect. Moreover, the screen size is upgradable to 8.4-inch. Drivers can also count on an extensive list of driving assists and airbags all around the car.
