Say, “Hello,” to the 2025 Ram 1500 REV, Ram’s first-ever electric pickup truck. And while there are obvious design cues based on the Revolution concept, it is shocking to see that a lot of the truck is a carryover from the gas-powered variant.
This version has a crew-cab body and a short bed, although Ram hasn’t yet said if it will offer any other configurations. Underneath the similar body lies a different platform, as the REV rides on a new architecture called STLA Frame, which is purpose-built for body-on-frame EV models. Based on the conventional look of this production truck, don’t expect it to incorporate many of the concept version’s more outlandish features, such as its third-row jump seats, but there is a frunk.
Currently, there are limited photos of the interior, but it appears that the cabin is unchanged from the gas-powered 1500, except for the addition of a passenger-side front display that’s similar to the one used in the Jeep Grand Wagoneer, and different software for the central infotainment screen.
“The Ram brand has redefined the pickup truck segment before and will once again with the all-new Ram 1500 REV,” said Mike Koval Jr., Ram brand CEO. “We believe in bringing the right range of powertrain solutions to our customers, and the Ram 1500 REV will be the first in a lineup of electrified solutions that will add to our current award-winning truck lineup. We are on an exciting electrification journey that will see Ram push past the competition in areas customers care about the most: range, payload, towing, and charge time.”
Ram also announced that customer reservations for the 1500 REV are now open at RamREV.com for a one-time $100 refundable fee. Consumers can secure their spot to pre-order a vehicle through the Rev Insider+ program, which also unlocks privileges such as exclusive access to events, news, and information about the Ram 1500 REV.
Production is to start in 2024.
