Is there a Ram 1200 in the Works?

As of late, Ram has been focusing on EVs, specifically the 2024 Ram EV. The all-electric pickup has a later release date compared to other EV pickups, but due to this timeframe, Ram has been eager to outfit the Ram EV with only the best features and capabilities. One of these is a range extender. We’ll have to stay posted for more information, but there are high hopes for the EV pickup. In other news, a rumor was recently released that Stellantis (parent company of Ram) may be working on a smaller gasoline pickup, a Ram 1200. This midsize pickup will rival the Ford ranger and, according to rumors, it may be equipped with a hybrid powertrain, similar to the Ford Maverick. We’ll dive into these rumors, but if there’s any merit to them, this could be great news for Ram.

Potential Ram 1200 in the Works

According to recent rumors, Stellantis has started work on a mid-size pickup truck to rival the Ford Ranger and Maverick. Stellantis has not yet commented on these rumors, but supposedly there’s a Ram 1200 in the works. If this is true, the automaker could see a huge boon to its sales as a smaller pickup could appeal to those consumers who are interested in a pickup, but who have otherwise no experience with a full-size one like the 2022 Ram 1500

According to the rumors, the Ram 1200 would come equipped with hybrid technology. Given the current EV wave, a hybrid pickup would appeal to those looking to reduce carbon emissions. This would also pose a direct competitor to the Ford Maverick which also uses a hybrid powertrain. In terms of engines, the Ram 1200 is slated to feature two choices, gas or diesel. The diesel engine would be a 2.0L four-cylinder capable of 160 horsepower and 148lb-ft of torque. There may also be a turbodiesel capable of 203 horsepower and 325lb-ft of torque.

If a Ram 1200 is in the works, it would most likely utilize Stellantis’ small wide 4×4 platform. Four-wheel drive would also be standard. This is still speculation of course, but if Stellantis does go ahead with the smaller Ram pickup, it will surely lead to a boost in overall sales. This is especially true if the automaker makes it a hybrid setup. For now, we’ll be staying tuned for more information.

Ram Unveils All-New 2023 ProMaster Van

Ram recently unveiled the all-new 2023 Ram ProMaster van at the National Truck Equipment Association (NTEA) trade show in Indianapolis, Indiana. There, Ram debuted its full-size van designed to meet the needs and demands of businesses, commercial fleets, and anyone in need of a strong work van. As of late, Ram has been focusing on EVs, specifically the 2024 Ram EV. The automaker has promised the next generation of electric pickup that can outperform while emitting zero emissions. Although there’s some time left until the electric Ram, Ram is aiming to incorporate some of its electrification processes into current models like the Ram ProMaster. This will arrive later in 2023 as a battery-electric vehicle (BEV). For now, we’ll focus on the all-new 2023 ProMaster and see what consumers can expect.

2023 Ram ProMaster Debuts

Ram recently unveiled its all-new 2023 Ram ProMaster van at the National Truck Equipment Association trade show in Indianapolis, Indiana. The 2023 ProMaster van arrives with more features, better capability, and more confidence to get the job done. Ram wanted to improve its full-size van to better meet the needs and demands of its customers. This includes commercial fleet operators, construction crews, and businesses both large and small. With the all-new Ram ProMaster, Ram did exactly that. About the 2023 ProMaster van, Ram Brand CEO Mike Koval Jr. said,  

“Ram ProMaster continues to evolve as we listen and respond to commercial customer input, and the 2023 model is a culmination of that effort,” said Mike Koval Jr. “Now available in three roof heights and featuring a broad array of safety, advanced technology and connectivity features, Ram ProMaster delivers confidence for hardworking people every day, no matter their line of work.”

The all-new Ram ProMaster features some of the best-in-class features like cargo volume, interior cargo height, load-floor height, turning radius, and cargo width. The work van also features a host of new advanced technologies like parallel/perpendicular park assist. Equipped with a 3.6L Pentastar V6 capable of 276 horsepower and 250lb-ft of torque, the 2023 ProMaster van is able to get just about any job done. The van features up to 6,910 pounds of towing capacity and 4,680 pounds of payload. 

Inside the 2023 Ram ProMaster van, customers will note an evolved interior. Ram designed the interior to provide comfort and flexibility to drivers and passengers. As such, the van features a push-button starter, keyless entry, and a steering wheel equipped with electronic system controls. A 7-inch touchscreen comes standard. Additional features include a highly requested improvement, a high-resolution backup camera with grid lines. There’s also a digital rearview mirror that displays video in real-time and a 360-degree surround-view camera so that drivers can have enhanced visibility. 

Ram’s new 2023 ProMaster van comes equipped with everything customers need to remain safe while still performing their job. The van features Ram Telematics technology which lets owners track vehicles and driver behavior. Ram will eventually release a battery-electric ProMaster in 2023, so those wanting to reduce carbon emissions can rejoice. Amazon will be the first commercial customer to use these BEVs, so we’ll have to wait to see if they’re well-received. For now, those in need of a strong and capable work van can purchase the 2023 Ram ProMaster.

Ram Shares More About Upcoming Ram EV

As of late, Ram has been busy teasing the upcoming all-electric Ram EV. The automaker has teased the name Ram Revolution, but besides the fitting name, there has not been much information about the automaker’s first EV. We do know that the electric Ram pickup is slated for a 2024 release date. We also know that Stellantis CEO Carlos Tavares has stated that the Ram EV will feature powerful capabilities and an impressive battery range. Given the long road ahead, Ram can really focus on the essentials of what constitutes a Ram EV. Stellantis has also been investing in software development, so it’s likely this will make its way into the pickup. Tavares recently spoke recently about his visions for the electric pickup, so we’ll go over them and what that means for those looking forward to the 2024 Ram EV.

Stellantis CEO Speaks on Ram EV Vision

In the midst of a zero-carbon emission revolution, many automakers have been considering how they can best present their own version of an electric vehicle. Although best known for their gas-powered Ram 1500, faced with the goal of reducing global emissions, Ram has decided to take all that they know about pickup trucks, and create the perfect EV pickup. Thus is born the Ram EV, or Ram Revolution (we like the latter).

Stellantis CEO Carlos Tavares recently spoke about the Ram EV in Amsterdam. Tavares showcased the outline of the Ram EV and presented the vision his team was working toward. Sketches of the upcoming EV pickup showed the Ram EV with modern and sleek aerodynamic lines. On the tailgate, the words Ram could be seen in the center with red lights sprawling along the sides and across the top. Tavares said that although the Ram EV will be arriving late to the market, its performance packages along with its time to charge and battery range would make up for the tardiness.

Not much is currently known about the 2024 Ram EV, but from what we’ve heard it promises to be strong and competitive. Based on the sketches, it seems like the electric pickup will resemble the Silverado EV with a futuristic design rather than the conventional truck design seen with the F-150 Lightning. Ram has also promised to equip the Ram EV with a range extender, so we’ll have to stay tuned to learn all about the all-electric pickup.

Ram 1500 EV to Feature a Range Extender

Ram has been in the news for its upcoming all-electric 2024 Ram 1500 EV. Like many automakers, Ram has been working on its own electric vehicles. Ram has touted its Ram 1500 EV as the next level of EV pickups. Although competitors like Ford and Tesla have revealed their own electric pickups, Ram has the advantage of making adjustments based on consumer sentiment and feedback. The latest news regarding the electric pickup is that the Ram 1500 EV will feature a range extender. The electric pickup is set to debut in 2024, but for now, we’ll discuss the impact that such a feature could have on the overall pickup sector. 

Ram EV May Feature a Range Extender

The Ram 1500 EV is set to debut in 2024. Ram CEO Mike Koval Jr. has been speaking on the upcoming capabilities and specifications of the electric pickup. One of these is the addition of a range extender. Since 2024 is a few years away, Ram has the luxury of committing to higher performance standards and more driver-assist features than other competitors. If Ram can figure out a way to implement its range extender, it will greatly boost the automaker’s credibility as a top automaker. 

The addition of a range extender, especially a combustion engine which is par the course for the feature, will make the Ram EV a plug-in hybrid. Automakers like Mazda have been experimenting with this PHEV system like with their electric MX-30. The electric SUV has a paltry amount of battery range (100 miles), so a range extender is almost a necessity. With the Ram EV however, Ram has stated its electric pickup will feature an impressive 400 miles of battery range. As a reminder, Ram has the luxury of boasting the best of the best in terms of capabilities due to its extended time frame. Despite this luxury, if Ram can make good on its promises, competitors like Ford and Tesla will have to follow suit.

Koval Jr. did not speak more on the range extender, but the addition would allow the Ram EV to boast more versatility and capability than its competitors. One of the largest concerns about EVs is the range. The average battery range is around 230 miles, so incorporating a range extender would bring in more consumers who see the current range estimates as obstacles. We’ll have to stay tuned for more information, but here’s hoping the Ram EV measures up to its expected 400 miles of battery range.
