Ram Unleashes 2022 1500 Longhorn Southfork and (Ram)RED Editions09/23/2021
Ram has had no shortage of special edition trucks over the years, and 2022 is no exception. We’ve counted at least half a dozen 2022 ram 1500 special edition specimens so far: the Limited 10th Anniversary, the Backcountry, the Laramie and Rebel G/T, the TRX Ignition, and now the Longhorn Southfork and Red. These last two will be unveiled at the State Fair of Texas. The title wave of special edition Ram trucks reinforces the notion that customers gobble these trucks up and quite literally can’t get enough of these slightly spruced-up 1500s.
2022 ram 1500 Longhorn Southfork
The upscale Longhorn Southfork replaces the 2021 Limited Longhorn 10th Anniversary Edition (not to be confused with the aforementioned 2022 Limited 10th Anniversary Edition, for those keeping track at home). For 2021, the Limited Longhorn trim falls right below the most luxurious Limited. Since there’s technically no Longhorn trim, we’re not sure why it’s not called the Limited Longhorn Southfork. Regardless, the Southfork looks just like the outgoing Limited Longhorn special edition it replaces.
The Southfork has a bevy of features: multi-function tailgate, retractable bed step, spray-in bedliner, adjustable cargo tie-down hooks, LED box lighting, cargo divider, and Falken Wildpeak All-Terrain tires.
The inside of the Southfork is slathered in elegant Mountain Brown leather, real wood trim, and hammered-metal aluminum accents. The suede and leather door panels highlight a laser filigree design. A metal pedal kit adds another touch of customization.
The chrome-clad Southfork starts at $63,315 and goes on sale later this year.
ram 1500 (Ram)RED Edition
The RED Edition only gets a few visual cues: a prominent red R-A-M grille, (Ram)RED door badging, and a (Ram)RED badge on the center console lid. The RED is otherwise a Limited Crew Cab and is offered with either the 5.7-liter “Hemi” V-8 or the 3.0-liter “EcoDiesel” six-cylinder engine.
RED recognizes the $4 million commitment made by Ram, Jeep, and Fiat to the (RED) Global Fund between 2021-2023 to help mitigate the global impact of health emergencies like AIDS and now COVID. (RED), founded in 2006 by Bono and Bobby Shriver, partners with brands like Ram to create campaigns that help raise money for the Global Fund, which is a giant fund for global health.
The RED Edition, special for its cause more so than its content, starts at $64,945 and also goes on sale at the end of the year.
