It’s not just the demand for pickup trucks that has grown for the past few years but pickup trucks have also grown and evolved in form and function. Take the example of the RAM 1500, in its base trim, you can have it as a basic functional work truck that you’d be using for commercial purposes while higher trims can be a more practical substitute to a luxury SUV!

2022 RAM 1500 Crew Cab Dashboard

Trucks these days can pamper you in luxury and keep you comfortable while traveling for long distances and the RAM 1500 does exactly that. It is capable of doing commercial duties, carrying luggage, towing trailers, and at the same time features an upscale cabin. In this review, we will be exploring the interior of the 2022 RAM 1500 Crew Cab and find out all that it has got on offer on the inside.

2022 RAM 1500 Crew Cab Interior Design, Dimensions, and Comfort

The RAM 1500's interior design is pretty impressive and it has a rather roomy cabin. The dashboard of the truck sits nice and high and is well set up. The vertically stacked air-con vents look good and so do the chrome-finished air-con control and radio control knobs. The truck doesn’t get a gear selector lever or stalk on the steering column but instead, there’s a gear selector dial that sits on the dashboard. However, we’re not the biggest fans of the rotary dial gear shifter as it almost looks like a volume control dial.

2022 RAM 1500 Crew Cab Front Seats

The RAM 1500 Crew Cab is offered in multiple trims and options. You can have a bare-bones, basic, functional interior with the Tradesman trim or you can spec the interior with sumptuous materials if you go for higher trims. As standard, with the base Tradesman trim, you get an all-black color treatment and hard plastic all around, however, RAM has employed soft-touch plastics on the dashboard and the door panels to avoid a cheap appearance.

However, if you’re looking for a family truck and need something opulent, then perhaps you should opt for the higher trims. For instance, the Longhorn trim gets genuine wood trim on the dashboard, steering wheel, and door panels while the Limited trim gets premium leather upholstery. These trims feel so plush and upscale that you almost feel like you’re riding inside some luxury SUV.

The truck offers space for 6 passengers as standard with the Tradesman trim but with the higher trims, like the Longhorn and Limited, the front center seat is deleted for the center console tunnel. The cabin of the truck is pretty spacious and there’s ample space on both rows. Yes, the passengers sitting on the center seats of both rows may feel a little cramped but otherwise, there is enough space for 5 adults to fit in and travel comfortably.

The seats are quite snug and offer good support as well. With the higher trims, you get individual bucket seats at the front with enhanced bolstering and support. Whatever trim you opt for you’re always offered comfortable seats and a good amount of space on both the rows and that’s the biggest plus of the RAM’s interior.

All the trucks in the competition are equally spacious and offer a similar amount of passenger room. In terms of the quality of interior materials, we found the GMC to be better than the rest. It also feels slightly more upscale than all the others.

In terms of space and comfort, the RAM just feels a notch better than all the others in the competition. The RAM also offers the highest amount of second-row legroom in the competition.

2022 RAM 1500 Crew Cab Infotainment

The 2022 RAM 1500 Crew Cab in its base Tradesman trim comes equipped with the UConnect 3 infotainment system. The system consists of a 5-inch touchscreen display that sits in the center of the dash alongside a basic 6-speaker audio system. The system is pretty easy to use; it might not be the slickest in the segment but it still is quite intuitive.

2022 RAM 1500 Crew Cab Infotainment System

There’s also an optional UConnect 5 infotainment system on offer that gets you a larger 8.4-inch touchscreen display with Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto and is much better than the standard UConnect 3 system.

The top Limited trim is offered with a massive 12-inch touchscreen infotainment display and also a premium 19-speaker Harman/Kardon audio system as standard but you can avail these features on lower trims as well by paying extra.

ox offers about 53.9 cubic feet of space which is pretty decent and can hold a good amount of cargo. If you need more cargo capacity, then you can opt for the 6’4” long bed option and have about 61.5 cubic feet of cargo space. These numbers might look good on paper, however, these aren’t quite the best as some of the rivals offer more cargo capacity.

Both the Chevy Silverado and the GMC Sierra offer more cargo space than the RAM. The GM trucks with the short box configuration offer 62.9 cubic feet of luggage space which is even more than the RAM’s long box configuration.

With the long box configuration, the GM trucks offer about 71.7 cubics of luggage space which is significantly more than both the RAM and Ford trucks.

Additional Interior Storage Spaces

Since the RAM 1500 is a pickup truck above all things, there are many storage spaces on the inside as expected. At the front, there’s a glovebox and an additional storage shelf above it. The front center seat folds down as an armrest and houses a storage cubby followed by cupholders. Plus, there’s also a small storage space underneath the front center seat. At the back, there's a foldable armrest as well wherein you have two cupholders for the rear seat passengers.

Furthermore, RAM also offers optional in-floor storage bins that can accommodate items the size of a four-inch drop hitch. The in-floor storage bin is a smart little feature to store items that you wouldn’t be frequently using.

2022 RAM 1500 Crew Cab Creature Comforts

The base Tradesman trim doesn't get all that many creature comforts. You get manually adjustable seats, manual air-conditioning, and vinyl-trimmed seats. However, the higher trims get all the bells and whistles that you’d ever want in a pickup truck.

The higher Limited trims get features like 8-way power-adjustable, heated and ventilated front seats, leather-wrapped heated steering wheel, leather-trimmed seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, and many more. You even have quilted leather upholstery on offer which you can avail of by paying extra.

Verdict

Well, if you’re looking for a basic work truck, then you’ll be impressed by how practical the RAM 1500 Crew Cab is. There’s a good amount of passenger room on offer with several storage spaces and the truck also gets a basic infotainment system. But the story doesn’t end there. If you’re looking for a premium option and want something that would offer the comfort of a luxury SUV, well then RAM has got you covered on that front as well. The truck’s higher trims come equipped with several creature comfort features and a very luxurious appeal.

The only downside however is that the rivals offer larger capacity cargo beds. So, if you’re looking for a truck that offers the best cargo space, then the RAM might not be the truck to go for. In that case, you might just want to opt for the GM trucks. But then, if cargo capacity isn’t a priority and if you’re looking for something that would strike a good balance between practicality, passenger space, and comfort, then the 2022 RAM 1500 Crew Cab is the truck that you should be highly considering.
