After months of teasers and revealing a concept truck in January, RAM has finally released more details about its upcoming 2025 RAM 1500 REV electric pickup truck. The company wants to raise the bar by promising 500 miles of range and more to take on competition from Ford. , Chevy, Rivian and Tesla.

We got our first look at the upcoming RAM 1500 EV in early 2022, and now we’re hearing that it will officially arrive in late 2024. The CEO of RAM Trucks said the team is okay with being late to the party because they didn’t want to leave out the key features and specifications that make it a truck.

Now, RAM mocks a vehicle that offers “capacity without compromise” by claiming it will deliver the range, towing and payload truck owners expect, all without being constrained by slow charging times.

This week at the New York International Auto Show, RAM Trucks finally shares the official specifications regarding range, towing and battery configurations, not to mention the finalized interior design.

According to RAM Trucks, the new 2025 RAM 1500 REV will have a towing capacity of 14,000 lbs., a payload capacity of 2,700 and class-leading range thanks to two battery configurations. The standard model will aim for 350 miles per charge with a 168 kWh battery, or buyers can opt for the massive 229 kWh battery pack that will potentially provide 500 miles of range.

For comparison, the Long Range F-150 Lightning only has a 131 kWh battery, and GMC’s massive Hummer EV has 212 kWh, making the 1500 REV sound wild. RAM went on to test performance, including a 0-60 time of 4.4 seconds, fording water up to 24 inches deep, and plenty of torque thanks to 654 horsepower and 620 lb-ft of torque.

As for fast charging, the 800V system gives owners 110 miles of range in just 10 minutes. With all that battery power, RAM said it would offer two-way charging to power a home, not to mention features like vehicle-to-vehicle, V2H and vehicle-to-grid technology. Perfect for keeping lights on or powering tools on a job site.

The interior looks as over the top as the battery specs sound, complete with a 14.5-inch upright touchscreen with Uconnect 5, a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, and even a weird 10.25-inch widescreen for passengers.

From everything we’ve seen, this is going to be an expensive electric pickup, especially for the 500-mile range variant. That said, RAM plans to offer five trim levels, including the Tradesman, Big Horn/Lone Star, Laramie, Limited, and a new trim called the Tungsten.

Production will begin later this year with the first pre-order due for delivery in late 2024. And while you can head over to RAMRev.com and reserve one today, don’t expect it to arrive until sometime in 2025.
