You Can Work or Play With Your RAM 1500 in Paris, TX

The RAM 1500 is an all-purpose pickup truck that is just as able to haul a horse trailer over the Rockies as it is to haul the kids to the grocery store. With many trim levels from which to choose, you won’t lack for choices in body styles, features, and power in the RAM 1500. Choose from three cab styles: the regular, the quad, and the crew cab. Three box lengths – the 5-foot-7-inch, the 6-foot-4-inch, and the 8-foot – give even more flexibility in customizing your RAM 1500.

What’s New for the 2022 RAM 1500?

The 2022 RAM 1500 gets the Uconnect 5 technology interface, which is accessible from the RAM Big Horn trim level. It’s four times faster and has double the memory of Uconnect 4. Four LED lights directly over the hitch are included in the Trailer Tow Group. Plus, a new clean air system that filters out 95% of air particles is now standard. Furthermore, there’s the annual RAM tradition of new models and appearance packages. The BackCountry, which is based on the Big Horn/Lone Star, gets a body-color grille surround. It also now has a black-accented two-tone paint job and other black-painted exterior components. On the far end of the trim level spectrum, the massive TRX gets an Ignition version. The Longhorn 10th Anniversary Edition from last year survives as this year’s Longhorn Southfork. The Limited, on the other hand, is given its own 10th Anniversary Edition.


How the RAM 1500 Has Evolved

Dodge Brothers first began pickup production in 1917. However, it wasn’t until 1981 that the RAM name was first used. A RAM’s head hood ornament was first used in 1933 but was discontinued in the ’50s. Dodge’s coding for its 2- and 4-wheel drives and weight ratings were designated as “D” for 2-wheel drives and “W” for 4-wheel drives. The numbers, 150, 250, and 350, were half-ton, three-quarter ton, and 1 ton, respectively. The 4x4s were known as Power RAMs.

The 1981 RAMs were built of lighter-weight sheet metal that was more rust-resistant. Through the ’80s, the truck received little changes to both the interior and exterior, as well as the powertrain. Electronic fuel injection was introduced in 1988 and new engines in 1989. The Cummins Turbodiesel debuted about this time.

The second generation of RAMs lasted from 1994-2001. Designations were changed to 1500, 2500, and 3500, and the Laramie SLT was added. The RAM underwent still more changes and upgrades during the third-generation years of 2002-2008. Engine power was beefed up, and interior comfort was upgraded. The fourth and current generation continues to improve and upgrade the RAM trucks.
