Ram Targets 500-Mile Range on Electric 1500 REV Pickup Truck

The all-new, all-electric 2025 Ram 1500 REV—the first battery-electric light-duty pickup truck from Ram Truck–made its world debut yesterday at the New York International Auto Show, according to a company release. The entire Ram lineup will provide customers with electrified solutions that deliver disruptive, leading-edge advanced technology in the years to come.

“The all-electric Ram 1500 REV is a monumental milestone on our continued journey to offer the industry’s best electrified solutions and further fortifies our award-winning lineup,” said Mike Koval Jr., Ram brand CEO – Stellantis. “We believe in bringing the right range of powertrain solutions to our customers and will continue to redefine the pickup truck segment. Our all-new Ram 1500 REV pushes past the competition in areas customers care about most, including range, towing, payload and charge time.”

The 2025 Ram 1500 REV will offer customers two all-electric options, including a standard 168-kilowatt-hour battery pack with a targeted range of up to 350 miles and an optional 229-kilowatt-hour large battery pack with a targeted range of up to an unsurpassed 500 miles. Both can add up to 110 miles of range in approximately 10 minutes with 800-volt DC fast charging at up to 350 kilowatts, offering customers quick and convenient charging solutions.

Vehicle-to-vehicle, vehicle-to-home and vehicle-to-grid bi-directional charging affords the Ram 1500 REV the flexibility to charge another Stellantis battery-electric vehicle or provide power back to the grid. With Ram’s mission to make lives easier, the truck can also send power to a home during a storm, run the tailgate party or provide power at the camp or jobsite. An onboard power panel in the bed can provide up to 7.2 kilowatts while an available onboard power panel in the front trunk (frunk) provides up to 3.6 kilowatts.

Other targeted performance figures include a 0-60 mph time of 4.4 seconds, 654 horsepower and 620 pound-feet of torque, up to 24 inches of water fording, up to 14,000 pounds towing and a surprisingly high maximum payload capacity of 2,700 pounds.

Ram is committed to innovation and powertrain leadership with a lineup that consists of anything and everything truck buyers want and need, meeting real-world demands. Today, Ram offers the most fuel-efficient 4x4s and the quickest, fastest and most powerful pickup truck straight from the factory.

The 2025 Ram 1500 REV is available in five trims, including Tradesman, Big Horn/Lone Star, Laramie, Limited and, introducing an all-new trim, Tungsten.

Active Driving Assist is available for hands-on-wheel/eyes-on-road and hands-free/eyes-on-road automated driving using lane centering with adaptive cruise control. The system uses multiple sensors, including radars and cameras, to dictate appropriate roads for the technology.

The 2025 Ram 1500 REV boasts a modern, contemporary design aesthetic that telegraphs the bold, heroic presence Ram is known for while evolving its DNA to signify an electrified future. The all-new face is instantly recognizable while being provocative in its graphic presence and visual architecture. The all-electric Ram 1500 REV includes signature lit “tuning fork” premium LED headlamps, a lit R-A-M badge reimagined in a modern, contemporary script and a one-touch power operated frunk with a best-in-class 15 cubic feet of space available. The Ram 1500 REV embraces a modern, body-color front fascia to differentiate it from the rest of the light-duty lineup while maintaining Ram’s DNA.

Ram’s first fully electrified light-duty truck stays true to its roots with muscular body lines and fender openings that have been stretched to cover 20- or 22-inch all-terrain tires. The all-electrified Ram 1500 REV features a specific, newly designed hood that is both svelte but muscular, maximizing internal frunk volume by conscientious sculpting of the external surface. A taut, arcing body-side character line stretches from front to rear, while sophisticated sculpture ensures a cohesive, modern side profile that is in harmony with the front and rear.

The charge port has been thoughtfully placed on the driver’s side front quarter panel and, when plugged in, is illuminated by blinking premium LED lighting. An audible sound signals the Ram 1500 REV is plugged in and charging has begun. The charge port features Level 1 and Level 2 AC charging on the top half and DC fast charging on the bottom half of the charger.

Transitioning to the rear of the Ram 1500 REV, Tungsten models feature an all-new power tailgate and a new, modern and contemporary R-A-M badge. Like the front, the rear of the Ram 1500 REV features an all-new, EV-specific, premium LED taillight design that spans onto the tailgate, indicating it is Ram’s all-electric light-duty offering.

The 2025 Ram 1500 REV features a 10.25-inch passenger screen. Only visible to the front passenger and with dynamic touchscreen control, it offers three major functions: co-pilot (navigation, device management), entertainment (via HDMI) and the ability to view the exterior vehicle cameras. The front passenger screen features an HDMI plug, which lets occupants connect their phone or tablet, turning the touchscreen into a mirrored extension of their device, allowing internet searches, music and app use to project through the Uconnect 5 system.

The 2025 Ram 1500 REV features a full-color HUD that is configurable up to 10 inches and features several different content areas at once, including Lane Departure, Lane Keep Assist, adaptive cruise control, turn-by-turn navigation, current speed, current gear and speed limit.

Tailored to the Ram 1500 REV’s battery-electric capabilities, the 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster includes a new screen that shows charge schedule (estimated charge times for both Level 1 and Level 2 chargers) and one pedal driving. Nearly two dozen different menus are offered, including driver-assist technologies such as adaptive cruise control, active driving assist, drowsy driver detection and speed limit traffic signs display.

Smartphone as a Key, in coordination with the Ram app, enables customers to use their smartphone as a key to access and start the vehicle without their phone leaving their pocket. Ram owners can also create digital keys that can be shared with other smartphones, with full control over the access. The card key is a backup that can be used in case the phone battery is dead or if the driver doesn’t have their phone with them. A traditional key fob is standard, but the smartphone and card key options give customers more flexibility in terms of how they access their trucks.

The new Ram 1500 Tungsten earns its place atop the lineup with an ultra-premium 23-speaker Klipsch Reference Premiere audio system as standard equipment. Stunning audio performance is delivered through the exquisite, segment-exclusive Klipsch audio system, which employs 23 specifically tuned speakers, including a high-performing 12-inch subwoofer.

  1. I had ‘Boondocker’ (See ‘Citrus Orchard’ at Boondocker’s Welcome) stay with me a couple weeks ago. He was a Rivian truck pulling a 20ft trailer (see YT – ‘Lower40eight’). We talked about his ‘electric towing experience’. Here are some pieces of data that may add to your consideration;
    1) The Rivian has a 135kWh battery. Normal range is ~310 miles unloaded (.435kWh/mile).
    2) Pulling his trailer, he has seen the best range at ~90 miles (1.5kWh/mile) and the worst at 77 miles (1.75kWh/mile). After the 77 mile range fiasco, he was stranded at a rest stop, running his 2kW Honda generator all day just to get a few miles of range. It’s not like road side assistance can bring you a gas can.
    3) He plans all his travel by charging stations, like a frog, hopping from one Lilly pad to the next. Its not about getting to a scenic destination, its about surviving the trip.
    4) The Rivian has a 11kW charger (internally) but all (Scott) had was a 32A/240V EVSE. 32A x 240V = 7.68kW. If fully discharged, it takes 135kWh/7.68kW = 17.6 hours to recharge.
    5) Many RV parks are selling their services to EV recharging using their 50A/240V connections. This is likely to over-stress notoriously inadequate RV park electrical systems. Since you are likely to be there for a long time charging, you might as well rent a spot.

    • Yeah, the limited EV range hauling either a small truck camper or pulling a small travel trailer is VERY problematic. EV technology is still years away when it come to campers/trailers.
