RAM Mexico Offers 6 Models Across 5 Different Trims For 2022!

TRX Returns To The Lineup For The New Model Year...

RAM Mexico unveiled its Ram 1500 (DT) lineup for the 2022 model year. Unlike the lineups found in America and Canada, the Mexico lineup consists of 6 models across 5 different trims. Out of those models, 5 of them come standard with the 5.7-liter HEMI V8 with eTorque mild-hybrid technology as well as the Advanced Trailer Assistance on par with the new trends demanded by the market.

All Ram DT models sold in the Mexican market for 2022, come standard with the all-new Uconnect 5 infotainment software. The system is four times faster and has three times more memory than the Uconnect 4C software equipped in the 2019 to 2021 models. Uconnect 5 features Wi-Fi capability, navigation, and allows for over-the-air updates to offer new content, features, and services over the lifetime of the vehicle.

Models – 

Like the American and Canadian lineups, Mexico continues to offer the Ram 1500 Classic (DS) pickup in its lineup as a cheaper alternative. While the DS model pickups are continuing to be produced in Mexico, RAM has decided to let the DT models be more of a premium offering. This means there is no Tradesman model for the Mexican marketplace.

Ram TRX uses performance-oriented software to preset five dynamic modes of on-road operation (Auto, Sport, Tow, Snow, and Custom). In this way, the driver can select the vehicle setting that best suits his needs and environmental conditions. Alongside these dynamic road modes, the Ram TRX offers three more off-road-specific ones (Mud/Sand, Rock, and Baja), they allow the driver to choose the optimal configuration for their off-road trips.
