Powerful Performance Specs

Get excited because you’re about to make the choice of a lifetime. With five legendary engine options, the 2022 Ram 1500 can be equipped to your liking. The standard engine is a 3.6L Pentastar® V6 engine with eTorque. This powerful engine delivers 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque.

However, that’s just the beginning of what this truck is capable of. You could find yourself with one of the other powerful engines as well. Let’s check out how each engine performs:




Towing Capacity

3.6L Pentastar® V6 with eTorque

305 HP

269 lb-ft

7,730 pounds

5.7L HEMI® V8

395 HP

410 lb-ft

11,610 pounds

5.7L HEMI® V8 with eTorque

Depending on what’s most important to you, you might choose a specific engine. If you want the best towing capacity, the 5.7L HEMI® V8 engine with eTorque will give you 12,750 pounds when properly equipped. However, the 6.2L Supercharged HEMI® V8 engine—available on the TRX trim—gives you the most horsepower and torque.

Ram 1500 Interior


The days when you had to work with only one row of seats are long gone. With the 2022 Ram 1500, you could find yourself with a seating capacity of up to six passengers. Plus, your passengers will have tons of room to stretch out throughout the truck with these dimensions in the Crew Cab:

  • Headroom (front/rear): 40.9 inches / 39.8 inches
  • Legroom (front/rear): 40.9 inches / 45.2 inches
  • Shoulder Room (front/rear): 66 inches / 65.7 inches

With 45.2 inches of legroom in the back, your rear passengers will have no complaints. Plus, they’ll enjoy the available reclining rear seat, which has eight different positions.

When it comes to technology, you’ll be able to enjoy the available Uconnect® 5 Nav system with a 12-inch touchscreen display. This large screen will make it easy to see directions, play your music, and more. It also includes:

  • 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot
  • Apple CarPlay®
  • Android Auto

Although six speakers are standard, you can also opt for the available 9-speaker amplified system with a subwoofer or even the available 19-speaker Harman Kardon® Premium Sound system. This will make your music sound better than ever before.
