Continuing its recent expansion of trucks, Ram has announced two new 2022 pickup trucks, the 1500 Laramie G/T and 1500 Rebel G/T.
The models offer customized performance features standard including a cold-end exhaust, cold-air intake, performance pages, paddle shifters and a console-mounted performance floor shifter.
The 1500 G/T models feature a sport performance hood and G/T decals to distinguish them from the rest of the Rebel and Laramie offerings. A factory-installed cold-end exhaust and cold-air intake, available through Mopar, are also standard.
Two new trucks: New app tools
Performance pages are included on the 2022 1500 G/T as standard equipment and give drivers the tools necessary to become familiar with their vehicle’s performance. The app provides access to real-time vehicle performance information, including timers (such as 0-60 mph elapsed time), g-force, gauges and engine performance. The data can be downloaded to a USB stick.
The 1500 G/T models feature a number of firsts for non-TRX models, including paddle shifters, a console-mounted performance shifter and a metal pedal kit. A G/T-specific interior offers bucket seats that feature the G/T logo with high bolsters and all-weather floor mats from Mopar.
The 2022 1500 Laramie G/T and Rebel G/T are available in a Crew Cab configuration with the 5.7-liter V-8 with eTorque mild-hybrid assist.
The 1500 Laramie G/T has a starting manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) of $55,480; the 2022 1500 Rebel G/T starts at $55,375. Both prices exclude a $1,695 destination fee.
The 2022 1500 Laramie G/T and Rebel G/T will debut at dealerships later this year.
