The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.2
6.5
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2022 Ram 1500 pickup truck has V-8 swagger and top-tier towing on its spec sheet, with a Raptor-iffic TRX edition to boot. The ginormous 2021 Ram heavy-duty lineup reports for work, home, weekend, and hauling detail all at the same time.
