Ram has expanded its line-up of electrified trucks with a brand new model. The automaker has revealed the 2025 1500 Ramcharger, a 663hp electric truck with a 3.6-liter V6 range extender. Just to clear off any confusion, the V6 engine under the hood doesn’t directly power the wheels. Instead, the combustion engine powers the on-board 130-kilowatt generator that replenishes the truck’s 95-kilowatt-hour battery. As a result, the 1500 Ramcharger will offer a total range of up to 690 miles between the battery and the charging system, with a 27-gallon fuel tank feeding the V6. Thanks to the range extender, Ram’s latest offering gets away with a smaller battery pack as compared to similar electric trucks. The top-spec Ram 1500 REV has a gigantic 229-kWh battery that’s almost 2.5 times bigger in size and offers 500 miles of range.
The 1500 Ramcharger features a dual-motor setup – 335-horsepower (250-kilowatt) front and 319-hp (238-kW) rear. The electric powertrain produces a total of 663 hp and 615 pound-feet of torque, which is enough to propel the pickup to 60 miles per hour in 4.4 seconds. For maximum efficiency, the truck can automatically disengage the motor from the front wheels in order to decrease rolling resistance.
Additionally, the rear electric drive module is available with an electronic locking differential. The floor-mounted battery offers an electric-only range of around 145 miles. Furthermore, the truck has a towing capacity of 14,000-pound and a 2,626-pound payload capacity.
In addition to the onboard generator, the 1500 Ramcharger can also utilize 400-volt DC fast charging to replenish the battery pack. The truck also has bi-directional charging capabilities, which can be used to power your house or recharge another EV. The electrified pickup rides on Stellantis’ STLA Frame platform, with the battery positioned between the frame rails toward the front.
The Ram 1500 REV is also built on the very same platform. There are several different trim levels to choose from, which include the base spec Tradesman, Bighorn, Laramie, Limited, and the new range-topping Tungsten. A four-corner air suspension system with five modes is standard across the range. The pricing hasn’t been revealed as of yet, but we expect Ram to announce it before the model goes on sale late next year.
