2025 Ram 1500 REV Debuts at NYIAS; Up to 500 Miles of RangeApril 5, 2023
There’s been a lot of talk about Ram’s upcoming electric pickup truck, and today the 2025 Ram 1500 REV is making headlines at the New York International Auto Show (NYIAS).
The big takeaways from this debut are the powertrain options and performance specs, including some pretty impressive range estimates. With a standard 168 kilowatt-hour battery pack, the 1500 REV is targeting up to 350 miles; however, an optional 229kWh pack will target up to 500 miles on a full charge.
That’s a very enticing set of numbers for battery-electric truck buyers, backed up by some equally impressive charging times: 110 miles recouped in roughly 10 minutes with 800-volt DC fast charging, up to 350 kW. This stat should hold true for both battery packs. Also possible with either is the vehicle-to-vehicle, vehicle-to-home and vehicle-to-grid bi-directional charging; so whether you need to charge a buddy’s car or give your home some juice during an outage, you’re covered.
As for performance, Ram is currently estimating a 0-60 mph time of 4.4 seconds, made possible by the 654 horsepower and 620 lb-ft of torque. This also allows for a tow rating of 14,000 lbs and a max payload of 2,700 lbs. This driving force is put out by dual 250 kilowatt electric driven modules (EDMs), one upfront and one in back for all-wheel drive capabilities. It’s all built upon the new STLA platform, designed for full-size electric vehicles with a body-on-frame design.
Inside, the REV will come with the latest Uconnect 5 system, displayed through either a 12- or all-new 14.5-inch touchscreen display. A new 10.25-inch passenger screen will host three major functions: co-pilot, such as navigation and device management; entertainment, sourced through HDMI ports; and the ability to view exterior cameras. And keeping with the times, expect an available 12.3-inch gauge cluster and full color head-up display (HUD).
We’ll have more news coming out of the New York International Auto Show today, so stay tuned!
