Gauthier Chrysler 2022 Ram 1500
Named Car and Drivers 10 Best List for 2021, AJAC Canadas Best Full-Size Pickup, Autotraders Best Overall Truck and Best Full-Size Truck: there is no question, the 2022 Ram 1500 dominates the market with its innovative capabilities and comforts.
Adaptable; the 2022 Ram 1500 pickup truck was designed for work, play, and adventure. With never-before-seen features and genuine quality, many are choosing the Ram 1500 over competitors.
Starting with its impeccable design, the 2022 Ram 1500 offers more than its undeniably attractive design; it provides aerodynamics and engineering that delivers an economical driving experience. The Exclusive Active Airdam deploys to reduce drag at high speeds, while the Active Air Grille Shutters eliminate excessive air intake. For even more reduction, the available Class-Exclusive Active-Level Four Corner Air-Suspension lowers the body at highway speeds. These features combined with a high-strength lightweight steel build provides maximum efficiency and durability for the driver's everyday needs.
Enjoy features such as the unique 60/40 split tailgate, or opt to access the tailgate traditionally. The center-mounted available rear step allows for easier access to the 53.7 cu-ft (1,521L) truck bed. Also available, is the Class-Exclusive Ram-Box Cargo Management System, with key fob entry, that stores equipment, locks, has an LED light and offers a 115-volt power outlet. Ram designed an available power sidestep that deploys automatically when using the key fob or when the truck is put in park and the door is opened: the power step retracts automatically into the rocker panel for aesthetics and fuel economy.
Exclusive to Canada remains the Sport model; new for 2022 choose between three Special Appearance Packages: the Grand Touring Crew Cab, Black Country and the Limited 10th Anniversary Package.

For a comfortable controlled hauling experience, the advanced coil-over-shock front suspension is light and durable: the 5-link progressive-rate coil rear suspension proves to be lighter than leaf springs.
