The upcoming 2022 Ram 700 will hit the dealerships in South America, later next year. It will be the second-gen model so we should expect numerous updates. That includes a new four-door body, along with the new architecture. Thanks to that, the new Ram 700 will be used as both the small work truck and the family hauler. There will be three different trim levels, SLT, Big Horn, and Laramie.
The first two models are available with the same engine option, while the range-topping trim offers a more powerful output. Two cab configurations are in the offer and all trim levels will get more standard equipment. The 2022 model will also introduce more luxury and numerous design improvements. The price will slightly increase and here’s everything you need to know about the new Ram 700.
New 2022 Ram 700 is based on the Fiat Strada model. Fiat and Chrysler are still making vehicles together, which is very interesting. The Americans are not that into Fiats and we can’t imagine the Hellcat engine to become available in Italy. However, Latin America seems like a perfect market. The Ram 700 is just a beginning, according to various reports. This pickup truck will enter the new generation so the changes are significant.
Ram 700 will get a new platform but its subcompact dimensions will remain intact. Moreover, the arriving pickup will look more stylish and modern. The front fascia will suffer the biggest changes. New version will arrive with the Rebel-like grille with bold RAM letterings. Furthermore, the honeycomb grille will add some chrome accents and the front part will definitely look competitive. New wheels are available and the rear section comes with redesigned taillights.
On the inside, the new 2021 Ram 700 will also gain various refreshments. The biggest upgrade is a new 7-inch Uconnect infotainment touchscreen. A new display is a standard across the complete trim level lineup. Furthermore, the steering wheel adds more grip, just like the seats. Thanks to that, you will feel more comfortable, especially during the off-roading.
The infotainment system is updated and the cabin will wear more high-quality materials. Still, Ram 700 isn’t a luxury pickup, but some things that Ram has to offer are without competition. New wireless projection is optional and Ram will add additional storage places for your personal items.
Ram 700 Specs
As we said, there will be two powertrain options and three trim levels. The 2021 Ram 700 offers a 1.4-liter engine for the first two trims. This unit generates 85 horsepower. However, Laramie trim is equipped with a 1.3-liter turbocharged output and it delivers 98 horses. According to reliable reports, this unit will be upgraded, so it will produce more power.
The same reports are suggesting new figures and Ram 700 will be rated at 115 hp and 117 lb-ft of torque. This isn’t a lot of power, but Ram 700 is a subcompact pickup and it isn’t made to do heavy-duty jobs. Lastly, a five-speed manual and six-speed automatic transmissions are available.
2022 Ram 700 Price and Release Date
As for the price, the new 2022 Ram 700 will cost around $12,000. On top of that, the range-topping Laramie trim level is available for about $15,000. The subcompact pickup truck will hit the dealerships in South America in the second half of 2021.
