Say, “Whats up,” to the 2025 Ram 1500 REV, Ram’s first-ever electric pickup truck. And whereas there are apparent design cues primarily based on the Revolution concept, we’re a bit shocked to see that lots of the truck is carryover from the gas-powered Ram 1500 we know today.
Sure, the Revolution steered a very new exterior with wild traces, and a large cab in a position to squeeze in a 3rd row of seats. However the manufacturing REV solely takes the entrance and rear-end designs and the wheel designs for itself. So it has the flowery LED headlights in a grille-less nostril, and the taillights prolong into the tailgate. They usually’ve all been grafted on to the physique and mattress of the present mannequin. Even the one glimpse of the inside reveals that is mainly the identical as the present one, however probably with an up to date middle display and a display in entrance of the passengers.
The Ram REV’s hood is not opened up in any photographs, although the lower traces that reach into the entrance fascia suggests there most likely is a entrance trunk like on the idea, the F-150 Lightning and Silverado EV. Additionally, with the standard cab and physique, we’re guessing the mid-gate from the Revolution Idea is not reaching manufacturing.
The outcomes are nonetheless actually enticing, no less than within the eyes of this creator. Nevertheless it does really feel like a little bit of a bait-and-switch after seeing the idea. It ought to nonetheless get the fully new STLA Body chassis and, clearly, electrical powertrain, slightly below a well-known shell. It’s extremely a lot the Ford F-150 Lightning (which we like very much) technique of mixing familiarity with forward-thinking, moderately than the extra radical strategy from Chevrolet.
