The all-new 2022 Ram 700 will be available in South American dealerships later next year. Since it will be the second-generation edition, we should expect more dramatic changes. A new four-door body style is most likely to happen as well. As a result, the new Ram 700 will become available as both a compact work truck and a family hauler. There will be three trim levels available: SLT, Big Horn, and Laramie.
The first two models share the same engine choice, while the top-of-the-line trim has more powerful output. There are two cab models available, and all trim levels will probably get more standard features. The 2022 model will also feature increased comfort and various refreshments in terms of styling.
Ram 700 Redesign
The upcoming 2022 Ram 700 is built on the same platform that underpins Fiat Strada. Fiat and Chrysler continue to co-manufacture vehicles, and the result is impressive so far. Americans aren’t big fans of Fiats, and we doubt the Hellcat engine will be popular in Italy. Latin America, on the other hand, seems to be a perfect place for Ram 700. According to numerous sources, the Ram 700 is just the beginning. Since this pickup truck will be entering a new generation, the updates will be major.
The Ram 700 will be given a new architecture, but its subcompact dimensions will remain the same. Furthermore, the approaching model will gain a sleeker look with some recognizable exterior features. The most significant modifications would be made to the front fascia, where the Rebel-like grille will dominate the whole front section. Ram will also introduce new wheels and new exterior colors.
The interior of the 2022 Ram 700 will also get a couple of updates. The most significant improvement is a modern 7-inch Uconnect infotainment touchscreen. A new display is standard in every trim level. Additionally, the steering wheel and seats will get a better grip, which is a small but important upgrade in our opinion. As a result, comfort is better than before.
The infotainment system is new, and the cabin will be equipped with more upscale materials. The Ram 700 isn’t a luxurious pickup, but some features are very impressive and probably the best features you can get in South America. A new wireless projector system is optional, and Ram will provide more storage space for your personal things.
Ram 700 Could Gain More HP
New 2022 Ram 700 is powered by a 1.4-liter naturally aspirated four-cylinder powertrain. Outputs of just 85 hp and 87 lb-ft of torque can seem strange to US consumers. We will probably see a few more identical setups around the world. If the Ram 700 is released in the United States, it will need significantly more power.
Even a 1.3-liter turbocharged engine is insufficient for the world’s biggest truck market. It develops 98 horsepower and 95 pound-feet of twist. Both engines come standard with a manual transmission, but all-wheel drive is optional in more expensive variants. Finally, Ram will offer both a five-speed manual and six-speed automatic transmission.
2022 Ram 700 Release Date, Price
The price of the new 2022 Ram 700 will start at around $12,000 or slightly above that. The range-topping trim level will cost over $15,000. Ram 700 is a popular subcompact pickup truck in South America. Its arrival in the United States is very unlikely to happen. Still, you can find a lot of rumors regarding its arrival in North America. Anyway, Ram 700 is going on sale this summer in Brazil.
