RAM 1500 2022
Carsguide Contributing Journalist Mark Oastler had this to say at the time: The latest DT series RAM 1500 Limited Crew Cab is unmatched for imposing presence, cabin space, limousine-style luxury, Hemi V8 performance and 4500kg braked tow rating. However, its substantial six-figure price tag, vast length and relatively low payload limit could be deal-breakers. So, like any major purchase, you need to carefully consider if this vehicle will genuinely suit your requirements. And if it does, you won’t be disappointed.You can read the full review here.
This is what Mark Oastler liked most about this particular version of the Ram 1500: Build quality/luxury, 4.5-tonne tow rating, Hemi V8 drivetrain

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.Show more
