Meet the $92,000 2022 Ram 1500 TRX Ignition Edition

The maker of the Ram van and truck brand revealed three new variations of its popular ram 1500 pickup on Thursday, including one that starts at nearly $92,000.

Stellantis, the company formerly known as Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and maker of Ram, Jeep and Dodge, unveiled the new pickups at the State Fair of Texas, a popular place for automakers to crow about truck advancements.

The new pickups are the 2022 Ram 1500 TRX Ignition Edition, 2022 Ram 1500 Longhorn SouthFork and 2022 Ram 1500 (RAM)RED Edition.

Their debut in Dallas marks another chapter in the ongoing competition between the three most popular pickup brands, Ford, Chevrolet and Ram.

The Ram pickup briefly surpassed the Chevrolet Silverado in 2019 as the second best-selling pickup in the U.S. before relinquishing that spot in 2020. The Ford F-series is the perennial best-seller.
