Ram has announced that its 2023 truck line will feature the 1500 Limited Elite Edition, an ultra-luxury package that will hit the market in Q4 2022. It will only be available in a Crew Cab configuration and will carry a 5.7L V8 with eTorque, a mild hybrid system that aids acceleration and improves fuel economy.

The top-of-the-line equipment includes a jeweled rotary switch, premium leather upholstery, suede headlining, clear pedals, 19-speaker sound system, heated steering wheel, unique instrument cluster theme, and wood and metal trim. Both the front and rear seats are heated and ventilated, with 12-way power front seats and 60-40 adjustable rear seats.
On the outside, the Elite has a folding step, cargo box divider, adjustable tie-down hooks and a multi-function tailgate that opens conventionally or as a set of two doors.
“The new 2023 Ram 1500 Limited Elite Edition takes the highest quality materials in the industry and elevates the benchmark for interior comfort to a lofty sky,” said Mike Koval Jr., CEO of the Ram brand. Of course, none of that comes cheap, and the Elite starts at $92,820.
