If you are searching for a full-size, light-duty pickup with the best suspension system on the market, then you need to take a peek at the 2022 Ram 1500 DT. Compared to the 2022 Ford F-150, it is easy to see which model is superior.
The Ram 1500 DT can be equipped with the Active-Level Four-Corner Air Suspension System. This advanced mechanism allows you to adjust the ride height of the truck according to your needs. There are multiple settings to choose from including one for improving fuel efficiency at highway speeds and two for off-roading/rock-crawling. You can even lower the chassis to make it easier for children and elderly passengers to climb inside the cabin.
As for the Ford F-150, the Raptor trim level comes with a typical independent double-wishbone front suspension with coil-over shock and a stamped lower control arm. For the rear type, it has a leaf spring/solid axle with a 5-link coil and Panhard rod. All of this means that it is fine for driving off the beaten path. However, it doesn’t offer the customization that the Ram provides.

Trailering packages are fantastic add-ons for light-duty pickups. However, not all suites are created equal. The 2022 Ram 1500 DT is offered with the all-inclusive Trailer Tow Group. However, the option for the competing 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 doesn’t quite fit the bill.
First, the Chevy Silverado 1500 can be equipped with the Trailering Package. This includes a 2-inch receiver hitch with pre-wired connections and Hitch Guidance - which assist with hooking up an attachment.
On the other hand, the Ram 1500 DT is eligible for the Trailer Tow Group. Not only does this give the truck a Best-In-Class hauling capacity - rated at 5,783 kg (12,750 lbs) maximum - but it also brings in several enhancements to make pulling an attachment much easier. Extended side mirrors ensure adequate viewing while driving, and the trailer brake controller allows you to stop smoothly without fishtailing. Plus, the coveted Class IV receiver hitch comes with a 7-pin wiring harness to allow electricity to flow to the brakes and lighting. Tow hooks are also provided on certain trims such as the Rebel.

If you are thinking about purchasing a pickup, then you may want to look into the available towing packages on the most popular models. The 2022 Ram 1500 DT is eligible for the Trailer Tow Group, which is a suite that other vehicles in this class - such as the 2022 Ford F-150 - can’t compete with.
First, the Ford F-150 does come with pre-wired connections and a standard trailer sway control to make driving with an attachment more stable. However, there are no optional packages that provide lower trim levels with extra hauling features. If you want the Class IV receiver hitch, you have to get the mid-range Lariat.
However, the Ram 1500 DT is offered with the Trailer Tow Group. It brings the Class IV receiver hitch into play on any trim including the base - which ramps up the truck’s capabilities. When equipped with the 5.7-litre HEMI V8, it can pull up to 5,783 kg (12,750 lbs). That is a class-leading number. Plus, the suite also includes a trailer brake controller for more stopping power, extended side mirrors for enhanced visibility, and the 7-pin wiring harness.

If you are searching for a top-tier truck that offers the most comfortable ride experience - no matter what conditions you are driving in - then you need to take a peek at the 2022 Ram 1500 Limited. Compared with the 2022 Ford F-150 Limited, it has a superior suspension system.
The Ford F-150 Limited uses a typical independent double-wishbone with a coil-over-shock design and a stamped lower control arm for the front unit. In the rear, it has a leaf spring suspension with a solid axle. This delivers a less than refined ride in Saskatchewan.
On the other hand, the Ram 1500 Limited comes standard with the coveted Active-Level Four-Corner Air Suspension. This allows you to raise or lower the ride height of the vehicle for various purposes. It has five unique modes starting with Normal, which is 221 mm of ground clearance. Every other adjustment lifts or lowers from this point. Aero drops the pickup by 15 mm for improved fuel efficiency at highway speeds. Off-Road 1 pulls it up 25 mm, and Off-Road 2 raises the body by 51 mm. Both are perfect for going over jagged terrain. Finally, Entry/Exit Mode pushes it down by 51 mm to make it easier for passengers to get in and out. This assures maximum convenience during every adventure.

If you are in search of the fastest, most powerful pickup on the market today, then you need to set your sights on the 2022 Ram 1500 TRX. Equipped with the best motor in its class, it outperforms competitors such as the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500.
Growling under the hood of the Ram 1500 TRX is a supercharged 6.2-litre HEMI V8. Coupled with an 8-speed automatic transmission with full manual control, it churns out a staggering 702 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque. Both of these numbers are Best-In-Class. Thanks to the 4x4 drivetrain and the six selectable modes, you can conquer sand, mud, rocks, and more with ease. This beast can also accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in just 4.5 seconds, which is unheard of for the light-duty market.
On the other hand, the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 can be fitted with (what seems to be) a comparable 6.2-litre V8 motor. However, the performance is nowhere near that of the TRX. Delivering only 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque, this 10-speed vehicle will be left in the dust - yielding a sluggish zero to 100 km/h rating of 5.5 seconds.

Growling under the hood of the 2022 Ram 1500 is a robust 5.7-litre HEMI V8 that churns out 306 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque. Mated with an 8-speed automatic transmission and RWD (4WD is optional), this truck can haul up to 5,783 kg (12,750 lbs) without breaking a sweat. Also, you can achieve up to 13.4 L/100 km (21 mpg) in the city and 10.5 L/100 km (27 mpg) on the highway.
On the other hand, the Chevy Silverado 1500 uses a smaller 5.3-litre V8 motor that delivers 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque. This puts the maximum pulling limit at 5,080 kg (11,200 lbs). Paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission, that simply doesn’t hold up against the Ram. Finally, it also has a lower fuel economy set at 12.4 L/100 km (19 mpg) in the city and 10.7 L/100 km (22 mpg) on the highway.

Going head-to-head against the 2022 Ford F-150, this ride will save you time and money at the pump. Plus, you can find one at Standard Dodge today!
Equipped with a 5.7-litre HEMI V8 and a 4x4 drivetrain system, the new Ram achieves up to 13.4 L/100 km (21 mpg) in the city. On the highway, it does even better, boasting a rating of 10.5 L/100 km (27 mpg). Those numbers are almost unheard of for this class. Delivering 305 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque, it is strong enough to get the job done right without wasting gasoline.
Meanwhile, the new Ford F-150 houses a smaller 5.0-litre Ti-VCT V8 motor. Paired with 4WD, this block yields a mere 15.4 L/100 km (15 mpg) in the city and 11 L/100 km (21 mpg) on the highway - making it far less efficient for Saskatchewan drivers.

If you are thinking about buying a full-size, light-duty truck, then you probably want the best engine on the market. Luckily, the 2022 Ram 1500 comes standard with Canada's best-selling motor. Compared to the 2022 Ford F-150, this option offers a superior performance.
Rumbling under the hood of the new Ram 1500 is a 3.6-litre V6 engine crafted by Pentastar. Producing 305 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque, it provides an extra push of 90 lb-ft of launch torque. Mated with the eTorque mild hybrid system and an 8-speed automatic transmission, this truck can tow up to 3,496 kg (7,710 lbs) without breaking a sweat. It also has a strong fuel economy rated at 11.9 L/100 km (24 mpg) in the city and 9.4 L/100 km (30 mpg) on the highway.
On the other hand, the new Ford F-150 uses a less robust 3.3-litre V6 motor partnered with a 10-speed automatic transmission. Generating 290 hp and 265 lb-ft of torque, it proves weaker than the Ram. It can only manage to pull a trailer around 2,313 kg (5,100 lbs); and it also earns a mere 12 L/100 km (19 mpg) in the city and 9.8 L/100 km (24 mpg) on the highway. Drivers will compromise performance.
