All automakers are now electrifying their pickup trucks. Even Ram, following a Super Bowl spot in February, has released more details on its first-ever electric truck.
Making its debut at the New York International Auto Show, the Ram 1500 REV features a new body-on-frame design with two battery options: the 168kWh and the larger 229kWh — providing 350 miles and a whopping 500 miles of range, respectively. This gives an incredible distance of travel, enough to get you from New York City to Toronto on a single charge! There is also an 800-volt DC fast charge that can provide around 110 miles of extra range in about 10 minutes. Ram teased a future 1500 REV XR model that will have a “class-shattering range.”
The REV variant of the 1500 is able to hauling capacity of 2,700 lbs., higher than its current gas-powered counterpart, as well as tow up to 14,000 lbs. Its powertrain produces 654 hp and 620 lb-ft of torque, allowing it to reach 60 mph from a standstill in just 4.4 seconds. The interior features carbon fiber trims and leather materials, a 14.5-inch touchscreen, and a 10.25-inch passenger screen. The top-shelf Tungsten package gets you 23 speakers from Klipsch, as well as dual wireless chargers.
