2022 Ram 1500 Production Streamlined To Avoid Chip-Related Delays

Reports indicate that Stellantis will be making some notable adjustments to its breadwinning Ram 1500 pickup truck family in order to stay manufacturing delays, and keep the supply trickling to product-starved dealerships.

According to Mopar Insiders, Stellantis is dropping all Ram 1500 Quad Cab configurations for the Laramie and Rebel trim levels for 2022. That leaves the Tradesman and the Big Horn/Lone Star that will still have the option of the Quad Cab configuration. When purchasing a Quad Cab or Big Horn model it should be noted that you will not get any sunroof options, power running boards, air suspension, or technology group options moving forward for 2022, says the report.
