All-New, All-Electric 2025 Ram 1500 REV Unveiled at New York International Auto Show 

Features a Targeted Range of Up to 500 Miles

The all-new, all-electric 2025 Ram 1500 REV—the first battery-electric light-duty pickup truck from Ram Truck—made its world debut at the New York International Auto Show. The entire Ram lineup will provide customers with electrified solutions that deliver disruptive, leading-edge advanced technology in the years to come.

The 2025 Ram 1500 REV will offer customers two all-electric options, including a standard 168-kilowatt-hour (kWh) battery pack with a targeted range of up to 350 miles and an optional 229-kWh large battery pack with a targeted range of up to an unsurpassed 500 miles. Both can add up to 110 miles of range in approximately 10 minutes with 800-volt DC fast charging at up to 350kW, offering customers quick and convenient charging solutions.

Vehicle-to-vehicle, vehicle-to-home, and vehicle-to-grid bi-directional charging affords the Ram 1500 REV the flexibility to charge another Stellantis battery-electric vehicle or provide power back to the grid. With Ram’s mission to make lives easier, the truck can also send power to a home during a storm, run the tailgate party, or provide power at the camp or job site. An onboard power panel in the bed can provide up to 7.2kW while an available onboard power panel in the front trunk (frunk) provides up to 3.6kW.

Other targeted performance figures include a 0-60 mph time of 4.4 seconds, 654 horsepower and 620 lb-ft of torque, up to 24 inches of water fording, up to 14,000 pounds towing, and a maximum payload capacity of 2,700 pounds.

The 2025 Ram 1500 REV is available in five trims, including Tradesman, Big Horn/Lone Star, Laramie, Limited and, introducing an all-new trim, Tungsten.

The all-new Ram 1500 REV XR with class-shattering range will follow the introduction of the all-electric Ram 1500 REV.

GMC Expands Capability of 2024 Sierra 1500 AT4X 

Adds Rugged and Refined 3.0L Duramax Engine

GMC announced that it will make the rugged and refined second-generation 3.0L inline-six Duramax Turbo-Diesel engine standard on its extreme off-road Sierra 1500 AT4X trim, allowing customers to go farther and explore more on their off-road adventures.

First introduced on select 2023 Sierra 1500 trims, the updated 3.0L Duramax engine comes standard with a 10-speed automatic transmission and delivers max power of 305 horsepower (a 10% increase compared to MY22) and max torque of 495 lb-ft (a 7.6% increase from MY22).

The Duramax Turbo-Diesel engine’s advancements are made possible through several key component upgrades, including: new steel pistons with a revised combustion bowl, retuned turbo compressor, new fuel injectors, and improved temperature control features. The Duramax engine will continue to be assembled at GM’s Flint Engine Operations plant in Michigan and will be available on the 2024 GMC Sierra 1500 AT4X later this summer.

 …the Sierra 1500 AT4X allows customers to venture farther off-road with confidence and in comfort. 

With advanced off-road capability, premium technology and an exclusive, luxuriously appointed interior, the Sierra 1500 AT4X allows customers to venture farther off-road with confidence and in comfort. Standard features such as Multimatic DSSV dampers and front and rear e-locking differentials, combined with the additional capability of the available AEV edition, make this the most off-road-capable factory Sierra 1500 ever. It all comes with the luxury-focused and tech-infused AT4X Obsidian Rush interior, which features full grain leather-wrapped massaging front seats, authentic ash wood trim, a 12-speaker Bose Premium Series audio system, and more than 40 diagonal inches of combined digital displays.

Finally, for the 2024 model year, the 2.7L Turbo High-Output Engine will now carry the name TurboMax. With 310hp, a best-in-class standard torque rating of 430 lb-ft, and max available towing of 9,500 pounds, the TurboMax engine provides GMC Sierra 1500 Elevation, SLE, and Pro customers with the power and capability necessary to take their work or hobbies farther, whether that’s towing gear or tackling off-road trails.
