2022 Ram 1500 Classic Trims & Specs

Ram had intended for their 1500 Classic to serve as a cheaper alternative to their class-leading new 1500 and it is pitched at buyers who prefer value and less flash and bling. The rationalized range is now down to three trims and two naturally aspirated gas engine options only - a 3.6-liter V6 and 5.7-liter V8. Regular, Crew Cab, and Quad Cab styles are available and standard equipment on all models includes a backup camera, a six-speaker audio system, manual air-conditioning, six airbags, and a five-inch Uconnect 3 infotainment system, optionally upgradeable to an 8.4-inch Uconnect 4C system with or without navigation. The smartly styled Warlock is the most expensive in the range with its added equipment that includes 20-inch alloys, black exterior accents, projector headlights, and ParkSense parking-assist system.

🚘What's the Price of the 2022 Ram 1500 Classic?

The Ram 1500 Classic starts off with the Tradesman at an MSRP of $29,515, excluding a destination charge of $1,795 as well as taxes, licensing, and registration costs. Next up is the Express at $31,015, and finally the Warlock at $40,435.

These prices all represent the trims in their cheapest configurations (regular cab with the 6'4" box for the lower two trims and quad cab with the same-sized box for the Warlock), but of course, the price can quickly escalate. On the base regular cab, for example, upgrading from 4x2 to 4x4 will cost $6,530 and opting for the bigger V8 engine adds another $2,200. Taking the average customer into account, the most expensive Ram 1500 Classic we could spec is the Warlock 4x4 crew cab with the V8 and every option - the final price approached the $60,000 mark.

Additional Packages

As spartan as the base Tradesman regular cab is, Ram at least provides a decent number of upgrades for this variant. The Chrome Appearance Group at $695 adds some much-needed shine to the exterior in the form of 17-inch alloy wheels, a bright grille, and bright bumpers. The $845 Electronics Group ($945 on the quad and crew cabs) adds the much-needed infotainment upgrade to the 8.4-inch screen and a seven-inch color cluster display. The most expensive package is the Tradesman SXT Package at $2,895 which adds 20-inch alloy wheels, floor carpeting, a bright grille and bumpers, a SiriusXM radio, and more. For the 4x4 Tradesman (excluding the regular cab), there is the new Tradesman Off-Road Package at $745. This bundles together a raised ride height, extra heavy-duty rear shocks, an anti-spin differential rear axle, and more.

On the Express regular cab, similar upgrades are available but the $685 Express Black Accent Package is unique to this trim and adds 20-inch black alloy wheels, black exterior badging, and more. The Express Value Package at $2,160 includes carpet floor coverings, a six-month SiriusXM radio subscription, dual exhausts with bright tips, and a cloth bench seat.

Moving up to the Warlock trim avails the $795 Luxury Group with an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a seven-inch TFT color driver's display, power-folding mirrors, and more. At $595, the Heated Seats and Wheel Group adds heated front seats and a heated steering wheel.

🚗What 2022 Ram 1500 Classic Model Should I Buy?

As with any truck, your needs will dictate whether you go for a three-seater regular cab or the six-seater quad/crew cabs. The same goes for the engines, although we think that the cost of upgrading to the V8 is worthwhile. Because the 1500 Classic is supposed to be a wallet-friendly truck, we'd go for either the Tradesman or the Express, with maybe one or two options to keep the price low. Although the Warlock looks good, it's priced at the same level as the new Ram 1500 in Big Horn trim, and we'd much rather get behind the wheel of Ram's newer truck.
