2022 RAM Classic Express
The 2022 RAM 1500 Classic Express is part of the fourth-generation 1500 that RAM debuted in 2019, and it sticks to the capabilities we expect from the RAM brand. It is geared toward the cost-conscious buyer and has fewer frills but is still comfortable enough for long drives or sitting in for a full working day. With automatic quad halogen headlamps, front suspension and heavy-duty shock absorbers, the RAM Classic Express offers safety and reliability.
The exterior of this truck is solid and reliable, all the makings of a hardworking, powerful truck; it comes with a wide body-coloured grille and BSW all-season tires on 17-inch alloy wheels. The rear stabilizer bar is not available on the regular 4×2 cab. For an additional amount, you can add front and rear bumpers and fog lamps. The Express is available in regular, quad or crew cab body styles, and you can choose between 2WD and 4WD.
The Classic Express runs on a 3.6L VVT V6 engine with an 8-speed automatic transmission. The Classic Express’ towing capacity is 9,160 pounds and a payload capacity of 1,500 when properly equipped. The classic has a good fuel economy rating for a workhorse; for highway driving, you get 10.2L/100km and 14.5L/100km in city driving. Drive quality is smooth and quiet on this new 1500 Classic, which is not typical for trucks of this size.
The interior of this truck is as comfortable as it is spacious; there is a behind-the-seat storage bin and rear under-seat storage in the regular cab. The front and rear seats have a heavy-duty vinyl covering, which makes for easy cleaning. Auxiliary audio input, Bluetooth connectivity and MP3 player are standard on all configurations of the Express trim. The Electronic Group Package will get you a larger 8.4-inch screen.
The RAM 1500 Classic Express has several safety features, such as electronic stability control (ECS), which helps the truck maintain control in low traction conditions. Park view and park sense warn the driver when the truck gets too close to an object or another vehicle.
The 2022 RAM Classic Express starts at $43,435 (including a $5,000 discount) for the 4x4 regular cab. The price changes as you add on optional packages or metallic paint colours.
This RAM is equipped for working, whether towing or carrying heavy loads. It gets the job done. For a work truck, the RAM Classic Express makes a lot of sense and is budget oriented; you should consider this 1500 Classic Express. The different cab configurations and bed lengths allow you to make combinations based on your needs. Head to your nearest RAM dealership and test drive the 2022 RAM Classic Express.
