Excellent cargo space in the interior, divided into several handy compartments, remains in view. We can imagine that firefighters especially like to store their belongings under the floor and on the side.
On top of the seats and luxurious materials all around, the 2022 Ram 1500 Built to Serve Firefighter Edition (like all other 1500s) offers an exceptional infotainment system. Right in the middle of the dashboard is a huge 8.4- or 12-inch screen surrounded by all kinds of buttons. Through it, drivers can control functions and various apps, such as Apple Car Play, Android Auto, hotspot, navigation and Bluetooth.
Of course, there’s also a heads-up display to read vehicle-related information without taking your eyes off the road.
