As the top-rated pickup in its class for towing, the new 2022 Ram 1500 houses a robust motor that delivers a stellar performance under various conditions. Currently available at O'Connor Chrysler in BC, you can get your hands on one of these light-duty trucks today!   Although the vehicle is offered with four different engines, the one that has the top haul capacity is the 5.7-litre HEMI V8. Standard on the Sport, Rebel, Laramie, Limited Longhorn, and Limited trim levels, it yields up to 395 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque. Mated with an 8-speed automatic transmission, it will provide you with a smooth experience every time you get behind the wheel.   There are also two drivetrains to pick between - 4x2 and 4x4.
