Ram shares most of the important figures for the upcoming 2024 Ram 1500 REV all-electric pickup.

Ram has kicked off the 2023 New York International Auto Show with a massive info dump on its equally massive EV pickup truck, the 2025 Ram 1500 REV. We first saw the Lightning competitor in production form during this year’s Super Bowl; now, we know what it will be packing, including battery sizes, range, towing and hauling capacity—and even a new range-topping trim.

Let’s get those headline figures out of the way first. The standard battery pack comes in at a beefy 168 kilowatt-hours, with a targeted 350 miles (563 kilometers) of range. An optional pack bumps that up to a capacity larger than any current available vehicle: 229 kWh, with an expected 500 mi (805 km) of range.

2025 Ram 1500 REV adds up to a best-in-class 110 miles of range in approximately 10 minutes with 800-volt DC fast charging at up to 350 kW

For reference, the Ford F-150 Lightning offers up either 98- or 131-kWh battery packs; the Rivian R1T tops out at 180 kWh, and the GMC Hummer EV boasts an even 200 kWh pack. For those needing even more range, Ram will reveal an extended-range model down the road, appropriately dubbed Ram 1500 REV XR.

Charging up that sort of pack could take serious time. Using an 800-volt architecture, Ram promises up to 110 miles (177 km) in about 10 minutes, when hooked up to a 350 kW station. Speaking of charging, the 1500 REV will offer owners multiple outbound charge options, too: vehicle-to-vehicle, vehicle-to-home, and vehicle-to-grid. Curiously, Ram’s press release specifies only other Stellantis EVs for the former feature. The REV offers up to 7.2 kW of power from the bed-mounted outlet, and 3.6 kW from the outlet in the frunk. The frunk itself is power-operated with a capacity of 15 cubic feet (425 liters).

Horsepower and torque come in at 654 and 620, respectively; the Lightning posts 580 hp and 774 pound-feet with its larger battery option. The REV features a pair of 250-kW electric drive modules, one at each axle. The front motor can disconnect for greater efficiency, while the rear unit can come with an electronic-locking rear differential.

The REV sits on a dedicated body-on-frame EV platform. This allows it to post some pretty serious towing and payload figures: 14,000 and 2,700 pounds, respectively. Ram also expects 24 inches of water fording—but also a run to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds, or barely slower than the 702-hp TRX.

One number that the brand did not share is the curb weight of this behemoth. The GMC Hummer EV famously crested the 9,000-pound barrier; with a larger battery and footprint, we don’t expect the REV to do any better.

Ram took the opportunity to debut a new trim in NY, too: the Tungsten. Named after the 74th element, the Tungsten brings in a bunch of brightwork, a unique blue-and-white interior (“Indigo and Sea Salt”), a suede headliner, heated and ventilated quilted leather seats, and a 23-speaker Klipsch Reference Premiere audio system. A diamond-knurled Tungsten badge sits on the big center console, featuring the VIN.

Inside the REV, buyers will find either a 12.0- or 14.5-inch touchscreen, running the latest version of Uconnect 5. There will be a dedicated EV Pages menu, which can show off the power flow, provide tips for maximum range, charge schedules, plug-and-charge, and other features. Ram will also mirror modern Jeeps by offering a 10.25-inch passenger screen. This setup allows the front passenger to access navigation or the REV’s exterior cameras. It also features an HDMI port, for entertainment purposes. Ram says the driver will not be able to see the screen, however.

Other 1500 REV tech features include a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, full-color head-up display, one-pedal driving, two wireless chargers, and Hands-Free Active Driving Assist.

The 2025 Ram 1500 REV will arrive at dealerships late next year. The extended-range XR model should bow afterwards.
