Avid readers of MoparInsiders.com and 5thGenRams.com will remember that back in May, we were the first to announce that the RAM brand was bringing a new G/T Package to certain trims of its 2022 Ram 1500 lineup. This morning, RAM officially announced the new package coming to the 2022 Ram 1500 Rebel, Sport, and Laramie trim lines.
RAM has been working hard with continuous changes and improvements since the launch of the fifth-generation Ram 1500 pickup in the 2019 model year. In the past two model years, RAM has released the darkened-theme Night Edition Packages for its Big Horn/Lone Star, Rebel, Sport (Canada), Laramie, and Limited trims, giving the Ram 1500 a more sinister look on the street.
The new G/T Package for the 2022 Ram 1500 Rebel, Sport, and Laramie models builds upon the sporty look by adding some performance features customers have been asking for.
“Ram has a strong history of performance trucks and the Laramie G/T and Rebel G/T models add to that while expanding the light-duty lineup with the segment’s best combination of performance, capability, luxury, and technology,” said Mike Koval Jr., RAM CEO. “Ram 1500 G/T buyers will enjoy this combination of performance and luxury that the newest additions to our versatile lineup offer.”
G/T models will feature all Ram’s capabilities while adding performance touches unique to the G/T models. Starting under the standard Sport Performance Hood, RAM has added a Mopar Ram Airflow cold air intake. G/T models also get a unique Mopar exhaust, likely the currently available Mopar cat-back part number 77072520AA, which you can listen to in the video below.
The G/T models will feature unique interiors as well. The big news here is that the rotary shifter has been replaced by a console-mounted shifter and steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters, just like the popular Ram 1500 TRX performance off-roader. And just like the TRX, the G/T trimmed trucks will feature Performance Pages through the new Uconnect 5 system. The Performance Pages provide access to the real-time vehicle performance information, including timers (such as a 0 to 60 mph elapsed time), G-force, gauges, and engine performance. This data can be downloaded to a USB stick, allowing for easy sharing of driving performance.
The G/T specific interior also includes bucket seats with extra bolstering featuring the G/T logo, Mopar all-weather floor mats, and a Mopar metal pedal kit.
