New Ram 1500 Classic: The bar was high and this truck sets it even higher

Ford and Chevy may still sell more full-size pickups but the Ram 1500 has emerged as the half-ton truck to beat. And that's not just our opinion at Emerling Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in Springville NY. The editors at Car and Driver and MotorTrend declared the Ram 1500 to be the #1 full-size pickup in America. The new Ram 1500 Classic is a little heavier than the standard Ram 1500 with a hefty steel frame so it's even stronger.

A few details about the new Ram 1500 Classic

The highest trim on the 2022 Ram Classic is the Warlock. Choose a Quad Cab with a 6-feet 4-inch bed or a Crew Cab with a 5-feet 7-inch bed. The new Ram 1500 Classic also gives you a choice of two-wheel drive or four-wheel drive. The Ram 1500 Classic Warlock shares some safety tech with the Ram 1500 like a rear parking assist feature.

Ram 1500 Performance

The new Ram 1500 comes in a variety of trim levels with your choice of V6 and V8 gasoline engines to power your workday. Whether you get the V6 or the V8, the gas engine will be accompanied by a 48-volt hybrid system. The only exception is the 5.7-liter HEMI® V8 that's available as a pure gas engine without an electric assistant. The editors at Car and Driver spoke fondly of Ram's gas-only acceleration.

There are other reasons to make the easy half-hour drive from West Seneca to Emerling Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in Springville NY on US-291 South. If you're a big fan of both torque and fuel efficiency, invest in Ram's 3.2-liter V6 EcoDiesel engine. Buyers from Ellicottville and Salamanca, NY will get 480 pound-feet of torque and, if you're like the editors at Car and Driver, you might get an amazing 24 MPG on the highway.

Towing and hauling

The new Ram 1500 is capable of towing as much as 12,750 pounds when it's equipped the right way. The Ram's maximum towing capacity beats most other trucks in the full-size pickup class. The Quad Cab can also haul a payload of as much as 2,320 pounds.

Interior and infotainment technology

The newest edition of the Ram 1500 has an enormous amount of interior space. The base is attractive and comfortable but in higher trims, this truck starts to feel like a luxury car. You can upgrade most models with features like a panoramic sunroof and, in the highest trims, you can get premium leather surfaces and the appeal of genuine wood accents. Select either an 8.4-inch touchscreen or an available 12.0-inch display.
