RAM unveiled its updated portfolio last week by showcasing the redesigned RAM trucks. The 2025 RAM comes in new trims, one of which is the hybrid 1500 Ramcharger. The Ramcharger is returning, but it's not a rival to the Ford Bronco since Ram is repurposing the moniker for an extended-range truck.
The truck's appearance is an odd combination of design cues from the 2025 Ram 1500 and the 1500 REV. The back end mimics the former, while the front end mostly remains similar to the former. RamBoxes that are available and a charging port located on the front fender complete the highlights. The latter are lockable, waterproof, and lit.
The inside is easily identifiable, with a 12- or 14.5-inch infotainment system and a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster. The variant can also have a 10.25-inch front passenger display, a 23-speaker Klipsch premium music system, and a digital rearview mirror installed.
Similar to the base model, the Ramcharger will also be available in the opulent Tungsten finish. It has a two-tone interior with a shifter inspired by crystals, diamond knurling, and a suede headliner. A dual wireless smartphone charger, aluminum pedals, quilted leather seats with heating, ventilation, and massaging capabilities, as well as 24-way power adjustment and four-way power headrests, are other highlights.
The truck's 92 kWh battery pack drives a dual-motor all-wheel-drive system that produces 663 horsepower and 833 Nm of torque. The engine is the main attraction. Accordingly, the vehicle has marginally less torque but significantly more horsepower than the Ram 1500 REV.
The 1500 Ramcharger will still be incredibly fast, though, as it should only take 4.4 seconds to reach 96 km/h. That coincides with the completely electric model's period.
The 1500 Ramcharger's 3.6-liter V6 engine, which also serves as a generator, is what really sets it apart. With this configuration, the truck's intended range can reach 1,110 km, which is significantly longer than that of conventional electric pickups.
Additional features include an inbuilt power system with 7.2 kW of juice for the ultimate tailgate party and bi-directional charging. Ram also mentioned that the vehicle has quick charging capabilities of 145 kW DC, which can provide about 80 km of range in about 10 minutes. The model boasts the best-in-class payload capacity of 1,191 kg and can haul up to 6,350 kg.
Ram said that the truck's four-corner air suspension and multi-link rear suspension will provide "class-leading ride and handling." The latter appears to have five modes that allow it to be raised for better off-road clearance and lowered for better entry and egress.
A variety of driver assistance features, such as an automatic parallel and perpendicular parking system, will also be available for the truck. Additionally, Hands-Free Highway Assist—a semi-autonomous driving feature that enables hands-free operation—is available to customers.
More information will likely become available closer to the launch, but for now, bookings are being taken; buyers may reserve their place in line by going to RamRev.com.
