Can You Find Luxury in the 2022 Ram 1500 Limited Pickup Truck?

Since the Lincoln Blackwood and Cadillac Escalade EXT days, we’ve been interested in adding luxury to the pickup trucks we drive. While those two models were essentially failures, they paved the way for trucks like the 2022 Ram 1500 Limited. Until recently, the only truck in the market considered luxurious was the GMC Sierra 1500 Denali. Still, even that truck has taken things to another level by adding Ultimate to the name.

Now that there are five trucks considered luxury models, maybe they should be in a class of their own. The Ram 1500 Limited would be among them. This Ram has the second-lowest starting price at $60,595. Only the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 High Country starts at a lower price. The other three, Toyota Tundra Capstone, Ford F-150 Limited, and GMC Sierra 1500 Denali Ultimate, start at prices above $72,000.

The Limited model gives you all the chrome you want right where you need it. CarBuzz tells us this truck rides on 22-inch polished wheels. This truck also has chrome detailing and power running boards to give the exterior of this truck an upscale look that you’ll admire.
