Stellantis leadership swore when it announced its 2025 Ram REV that it knew it was late to the EV segment but that it would learn from the competition and deliver best-in-class range, towing and payload. The all-new 2025 Ram Ramcharger delivers on those promises. Drivers can even add a digital key to their smartphone or watch to start their vehicle. The company’s YouTube announcement gives details about the Ramcharger and the 2025 Ram 1500 REV as well as gasoline versions of the 2025 Ram 1500.

Watch the 2025 Ram 1500 lineup unveiling:

2025 Ram 1500 Ramcharger

  • 690 mile range
  • 663 horsepower
  • 615 lb.-ft. of torque
  • 0 – 60 miles per hour in 4.4 seconds
  • Towing up to 14,000 pounds
  • Payload of up to 2,625 pounds

“With unlimited battery-electric range, the Ram 1500 Ramcharger is the pinnacle of the light-duty pickup truck segment and the ultimate electric truck,” said Tim Kuniskis, Ram brand CEO – Stellantis. “The new Ramcharger is a beast of a light duty – 663 horsepower, 615 lb.-ft of torque, 4-second 0-60 mph, 14,000 lbs. of towing… and zero need for a public charger.”

2025 Ram 1500 Ramcharger’s V-6 Engine

Ram does not refer to the Ramcharger as a hybrid even though the truck does have a 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine. The engine is adapted for the specific mission of powering the onboard generator to generate electrical power. The 2025 Ram 1500 Ramcharger features a 92 kilowatt-hour (kWh) battery pack, paired with an on-board 130 kW generator, sending power to 250-kilowatt (kW) front and 238 kW rear electric drive modules (EDMs). There is no direct mechanical path from the engine to the wheels.

The EDMs combine the motor, gearbox and inverter along with all-wheel-drive capability. The 2025 Ram 1500 Ramcharger features one EDM on the front axle with an automatic wheel-end disconnect that allows the front wheels to spin freely in certain conditions, maximizing efficiency. The second EDM is positioned on the rear axle with an available electronic-locking rear differential.

Vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-home bi-directional charging affords the Ram 1500 Ramcharger the flexibility to charge another Stellantis battery-electric vehicle or provide power back to the grid.

Ram offers customers a quick and convenient recharging solution with the ability to add up to 50 miles of all-electric range in approximately 10 minutes with 400-volt DC fast charging at up to 145 kW.

The 2025 Ram 1500 Ramcharger uses the all-new STLA Frame platform and is designed specifically for full-size electric vehicles featuring a body-on-frame design. The high-strength steel frame is lightweight, yet stiff and durable. The STLA Frame is wider in the middle to efficiently incorporate the battery pack which is positioned at the bottom of the vehicle.

The 2025 Ram 1500 Ramcharger has a modern, body-color front fascia to differentiate it from the rest of the light-duty lineup while maintaining the look of the Ram design.

The back of the Ram 1500 Ramcharger has an all-new power tailgate. It also has a different R-A-M badge that will be unique in the Ram lineup. The rear of the Ram 1500 Ramcharger features an EV-specific, LED taillight design that spans onto the tailgate, indicating it is an electric Ram truck.

2025 Ramcharger Interior

The 2025 Ram 1500 Ramcharger will have a new 14.5-inch reconfigurable touchscreen and a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster. It will also have a segment-first 10.25-inch passenger screen so that the passenger can act as co-pilot, watch the outside cameras or simply have an entertainment screen. There is also a digital rearview mirror and a HUD. The Uconnect 5 system offers even more connected services so the driver can monitor the power flow and actual range.
