2022 Ram 1500: Surefooted & Steadfast for All Types of Terrain

Despite their rather husky stature, bighorn sheep are pretty light on their feet. This is partly due to their mountain-dwelling habits, which require the ability to sustain traction over uneven terrain. Robust, yet light enough to climb over rocky pastures? Sounds quite familiar.

Just like its namesake, the 2022 Ram 1500 was built for strength, outfitted with a 98% high-strength steel frame. This construction, in turn, gives way to a maximum towing capacity of up to 12,750 pounds, and up to 2,300 pounds of maximum payload, all when properly equipped.

While nature’s rams have rough hooves to deliver traction, the automotive Ram offers available 35-inch tires with traction-focused tread for those uneven roadways. These tires come standard on the Ram 1500 TRX, which also includes a series of drive modes for a variety of scenarios.


The Ram 1500 Always Has Your Back

The bighorn sheep must always be leery of potential predators. As such, they’ve developed outstanding vision, spotting animals of prey from nearly a mile away.

While you might not be concerned about becoming someone’s dinner, possessing adept sight is still important, especially when you’re sitting behind the wheel. Thankfully, the Ram 1500 is here to help keep watch. This feat is achieved through the optional 360° Surround View Camera, which displays views of all areas surrounding your truck, so you can maneuver safely.

Speaking of safety, the 1500 has no shortage of driver-assistive features, including:

Parallel and Perpendicular Park Assist: Pull into tight spaces with ease, thanks to available Parallel and Perpendicular Park Assist, which automatically controls steering while you engage the brake, accelerator, and gear position.

LaneSense® Lane Departure Warning: The unintentional lane drift. It happens to all of us, particularly when taking long highway drives. Luckily, Ram’s available LaneSense® Lane Departure Warning will be there to get you back on track through audial and visual cues.

2022 Ram 1500: Built for the Long Haul

For many bighorn sheep, the desert environment they call home makes water consumption sparse. To counteract this, their bodies can extract liquids from the foods they eat. They’re also capable of going three to seven days without stopping to drink.

The Ram 1500 is also able to go quite the distance before needing to recharge. In fact, when paired with the available 3.6L Pentastar® V6 engine with eTorque, this truck boasts an EPA-estimated 16 city/27 highway MPG. Unless it’s time to stock up on snacks, you can say, “So long!” to that approaching gas station.
