Windsor, Ontario: New for the 2022 model year, Ram is adding to its tech title with the integration of the award-winning Uconnect 5 system. The company’s most advanced in-car technology delivers faster operating speeds, new content and improved customization for Ram pickups and Ram Commercial vehicles.
“A competitive advantage of our Uconnect 5 system lies in its ability to align with customer needs using personalization and unique content for each brand,” said Mamatha Chamarthi, Head of Software Business and Product Management. “The features and user experience are tailor-made for Ram trucks and Ram commercial vehicles, and will continue to expand with the digitalization of mobility.”
Customers can personalize the Uconnect home screen with frequently used features for quick and easy access via one-touch operation.

Uconnect 5 features several fully customizable interfaces storing up to five different user profiles. Uconnect’s navigation is an intuitive built-in solution from TomTom and includes traffic and connected services, giving drivers the latest information for a safer and smoother journey. Additionally, turn-by-turn navigation is available in the cluster and HUD with or without Apple Car Play or Android Auto. Also new is the Maps Over the Air and Last Mile Navigation feature..
Servicing and updating your Ram has never been easier. Notifications work in harmony with the Vehicle Health Report, Vehicle Health Alert and Ram mobile app.

With the available Uconnect app, a smartphone can start the engine, lock or unlock doors and receive notifications. Inside the vehicle, SOS Call provides external assistance at the touch of a button. Owners can also receive a notification when someone else drives the vehicle while in Valet Alert mode. The award-winning Uconnect system has led the industry in content and exclusive features since its inception in 2003 and the fifth generation continues the momentum.
