This is what American luxury looks like.
Believe it or not, Ram separated from Dodge more than 12 years ago to become its own standalone brand. In 2012, Ram launched the first 1500 Limited model as a benchmark luxury model finished with premium materials. To celebrate a decade of building the most luxurious truck on the market, Ram has introduced a special edition model called the 10th Anniversary Edition. Based on the 2022 Ram 1500 Limited, this truck makes us think twice about spending more on a German luxury sedan.
"The new 2022 Ram 1500 Limited 10th Anniversary Edition celebrates 10 years of luxury pickup truck leadership, featuring the ultimate combination of capability, luxury, and refinement," said Mike Koval Jr, Ram Brand Chief Executive Officer. "Ram 1500 Limited buyers have enjoyed the highest quality materials for a decade now and the Limited 10th Anniversary Edition is the latest example of how Ram delivers the most luxurious pickups in the industry."
Like a standard Ram 1500 Limited, the 10th Anniversary Edition comes equipped with real wood, metal, and leather elements. The cabin is decadently appointed with quilted leather seats and door inserts in a new Indigo/Sea Salt Grey combination and a new suede material on the headliner, A-pillar, and sun visors. Unique accents for the 10th Anniversary Edition include Aluminum Litho bezels, a unique shifter center cap, a metal pedal kit, a special badge on the center console, and a unique graphic on the driver's cluster screen during startup. A 19-speaker Harmon Kardon premium sound system is included as well.
Other colors are available, but we'd opt for the Blue Shade color (pictured here) exclusively offered on the 10th Anniversary Edition. The special edition look is complete with the Ram multifunction tailgate, a Mopar center-mounted bed step, and adjustable cargo tie-down hooks. Buyers can select either that 5.7-liter HEMI V8 with eTorque or the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6.
Pricing starts at $60,175 plus a $1,695 destination fee; the truck goes on sale in the third quarter of 2021.
