Carsguide Managing Editor - Head of Video Matt Campbell had this to say at the time: It’s big, and it’s good. Helping out my mates who needed to move their tiny house was a great excuse to spend a week in the newer Ram 1500 DT Laramie, and the vehicle I drove was impressive in many, many ways.

RAM 1500 2022 Accessories

The biggest decision you really need to make is whether you option the Ramboxes on the variants that don't have them standard. These are clever storage boxes along the sides of the tub that are lockable, have drainage, and even have power too.

A range of extras can be had - including tow ball kits in 50mm and 70mm, and a tri-fold tonneau cover.

RAM 1500 2022 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Ram 1500 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • What towing capacity do I need for a float with two horses?

    The rule of thumb is that a float with two horses on board is around the 2000kg mark, so that’s the absolute bare minimum towing limit you’d be looking at. Even then, by the time you add a couple of saddles, some feed bins and whatever else it is horsey people cart around, you could easily be looking at 2.5 or even three tonnes.

    With that in mind, the smart move would be to buy a dual-cab ute with as much towing capacity as possible. The good news there is that many of the popular choices can tow a braked trailer weighing anything up to 3.5 tonnes. Think about it; if a ute can tow 3.5 tonnes, it should cope easily with two tonnes.

    If, on the other hand, we’re talking a three-axle float and a pair of Clydesdale horses, you might have to look at one of the US-made utes from the likes of RAM or other US-market brands. And even then, you need to be careful: Even though some versions of the RAM ute can legally tow 4500kg with a braked trailer, to do so and not exceed the GCM (the combined mass of the vehicle and trailer) the payload in the tray falls to less than 100kg.

RAM 1500 2022 Interior

You might be blown away by the 12.0-inch touchscreen media system in the cabin of the DT Ram 1500 models, and that's understandable. It looks good, and has great functionality as well - including buttons and dials to the side.

There's also ample storage throughout the cabin, and despite being built in left-hand drive, imported and then rebuilt in right-hand drive, it's a pretty seamless conversion.

RAM 1500 2022 Seats

The Ram 1500 has five seats. They're all big seats, too - adults can fit comfortably up front, and in the rear. And if you're thinking three-across the back row will be a squeeze, fear not - it's a roomy space, with child-seat anchor points, too.

RAM 1500 2022 Speed

There is no claimed 0-100km/h time for the Ram 1500. It might have a big petrol V8 engine, but it's not supercar fast. Expect the sprint to highway pace to be done with in about 10 seconds.

RAM 1500 2022 Boot Space

No boot here, but cargo capacity is good for this big truck. There's 1.5 cubic metres (SAE) of luggage / storage capacity in the tub of the Ram, and the Ramboxes (if fitted) have 210L of storage.
