All-Electric Ram Pickup Dubbed Ram 1500 REV

A new trademark filing was recently discovered indicating that the all-new Ram EV will be called the Ram 1500 REV. The electric pickup truck has been teased for some time, with Ram posting images and spy shots hinting at the truck’s appearance. The automaker has also revealed the truck’s expected performance standards. While we have a potential name, we still need to see the actual concept art for the Ram 1500 REV. Thankfully, this information and more will be revealed at the January 2023 Consumer Electronics Show (CES). It’s here where consumers will get to see the all-electric pickup truck that Ram has been working on. Until then, we’ll take a look at the trademark filings and see what new information has been discovered.

Ram EV Will Be Called Ram 1500 REV

The all-new Ram EV will be called the Ram 1500 REV. This information comes from a recent trademark filing with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. In the filing, the name REV indicates that Ram’s electric pickup truck will carry the three-letter abbreviation. While this differs from what many believed would be the Ram Revolution, Ram REV is a short but effective name for the automaker’s first electric pickup truck.

According to the trademark filing, the application was made on December 23rd, 2022. It was filed under the categories of land vehicles, specifically passenger trucks. Although this may be a straightforward indicator, trademarks are not always absolute. For assured certainty, we would have to wait until the 2023 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in January. There, Stellantis CEO Tavares will discuss Ram’s vision for the future. This vision includes the Stellantis Dare Forward 2030 strategy, which aims to offer innovative, clean, and safe solutions that will help reduce global carbon emissions.

As for the Ram 1500 REV, the pickup truck is expected to offer strong performance and come equipped with a ranger extender. Riding on Stellantis’ EV platform, the EV truck is expected to use between 101 and 118 kWh batteries. The electric pickup is also expected to arrive with up to 500 miles of battery range and offer charging speeds as high as 150 kW. Additionally, shots of a prototype being tested were recently taken, indicating that the Ram EV may feature an independent rear suspension, coil springs, and a new chassis. Piece by piece, we’re getting further information about the Ram REV. It’s only a matter of time before the final product is revealed.

2024 Ram 1500 EV Clay Model Shows Expected Design

The 2024 Ram 1500 EV is almost here. In January, Ram will unveil the concept pickup truck at the 2023 Consumer Electronics Show (CES). There, consumers will see the all-electric pickup truck that Ram has been teasing for months. Since it was first announced, Ram has been working toward creating the ultimate electric truck. The automaker has toured around the country, asking consumers what qualities they would like to see in an EV pickup truck. So far, Ram has stated that the Ram EV would feature over 400 miles of battery range and a range extender. While additional details have yet to be revealed, the official concept art and performance standards will be confirmed at the CES. For now, Ram has released a clay model depicting the truck’s appearance. We’ll take a look at the model and see what consumers can expect.

What Will The 2024 Ram 1500 EV Look Like?

Ram has released a clay model depicting what the all-new, all-electric Ram 1500 is expected to look like. Thus far, the automaker has only released teaser images that have yet to show too much detail about the electric pickup. Along with these images, Ram has toured the country as part of its Ram Real Talk Tour. The automaker gathered feedback about the perfect EV pickup by asking consumers questions about battery range, capability, and charge time. Thankfully, as the 2023 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) draws near, Ram is providing consumers with a bit more to go on. 

Looking at the clay model released by Ram, the pickup truck appears to feature a four-door crew cab configuration and a conventional shape. While the model does not give away too much information, the truck may have a lower roof and bulging fenders. The model also appears to have slim video cameras instead of side-view mirrors. This would help improve the aerodynamics of the truck by reducing drag, though it is uncertain if this will make it to production. Ram has not given much detail, but according to the automaker’s CEO, Mike Koval, the truck will “exceed what competitors have announced so far.”

Set for January 2023, the CES presentation will feature Stellantis CEO Tavares as he discusses the brand’s vision for the future. According to Tavares, this vision will revolve around the Stellantis Dare Forward 2030 strategy, which aims to reduce global carbon emissions using innovative, clean, and safe solutions. These solutions include the all-electric Ram 1500 EV and the automaker’s battery-electric Ram ProMaster Van. The CES is only a few weeks away, so we’ll stay tuned for what Ram has in store for its first all-electric pickup truck.

Five Reasons to Consider the 2023 Ram 1500

The 2023 Ram 1500 remains one of the most dominating pickup trucks available. The light-duty pickup has consistently offered consumers strong capability and versatility. The Ram 1500 has also kept ahead of other trucks in its segment due to Ram’s ingenuity and polished design. As of late, the automaker has been working on its all-new 2024 Ram EV. Ram has boasted about the potential capabilities of its first electric pickup truck, including 400 miles of battery range. Since there is still some time until we see the Ram EV revealed, we thought we’d look at five reasons why consumers should consider the 2023 Ram 1500.

1) Ram 1500 TRX

One of the best reasons to consider the 2023 Ram 1500 is the TRX trim. The Ram TRX is one of the strongest off-road pickup trucks available. Equipped with a 6.2L supercharged V8 engine, the 3-and-a-half-ton pickup truck delivers 702 horsepower and 605lb-ft of torque. The robust pickup also has a 0-60 mph time of 3.7 seconds. With 35-inch all-terrain tires, owners will have no trouble traversing terrain as the Ram 1500 TRX has 11.8 inches of ground clearance. Such a powerful trim makes the 2023 Ram 1500 a clear choice for anyone wanting unmatched power and performance. 

2) Trailer Driver-Assist Features

Another reason to consider the Ram 1500 is its trailer-assist features. The light-duty pickup truck offers a maximum towing capacity of 12,750 pounds. On top of offering best-in-class towing, the pickup truck provides drivers with helpful towing features like trailer reverse steering control. This feature lets drivers steer the trailer in the desired direction and lets them reverse in a straight line. The 2023 Ram 1500 also offers drivers a digital rearview mirror with an LCD monitor. This provides real-time video streaming so drivers can remain alert at all times. Additionally, a 360-degree surround view camera lets drivers see what’s around their trailer. 

3) Active Park Assist

The third benefit that the Ram 1500 offers is ParkSense Active Park Assist. This feature maintains the steering while drivers handle the throttle, brakes, and gear selection. This driver-assist feature helps when parallel parking or parking in perpendicular spaces. Now owners can rest assured that parking will give them no trouble wherever they go, whether it’s a grocery store lot or a shopping plaza.

4) Multi-Function Tailgate

As many truck owners know, the tailgate is an essential feature. With the 2023 Ram 1500, owners will enjoy the functionality and ease of its multi-function tailgate. The specialized tailgate can flip down, open like a pair of doors, or be split into a 60/40 ratio. The tailgate also features an LED hitch light to help see at night. Owners will be happy to know the tailgate can hold up to 2,000 pounds. It can also be easily opened with a key-fob control. 

5) Driver Display System

Last is the driver display system. The 2023 Ram 1500 offers drivers a configurable digital driver information display that lets them save their custom settings. At 12.3-inches, the large screen displays various information and gauges. It also offers full-screen navigation with 3D graphics. Additionally, there’s a 12-inch infotainment screen with customizable features.

Ram Unveils Second 2023 Ram 1500 Built to Serve EMS Trim

New Ram 1500 ‘Built to Serve’ Emergency Medical Service (EMS) model honors first responders

Ram has announced the second installment of its Built to Serve limited edition lineup. The Lineup is dedicated to first responders and honors those who work in emergency medical services (EMS). Ram will add another Ram 1500 EMS trim to its Built to Serve Lineup. The automaker hopes to acknowledge first responders like police officers, firefighters, and emergency medical personnel. The Ram 1500 EMS trims will come custom-made with exterior cues, interior upholstery, and profession-aiding features that all honor first responders. Ram has already introduced an EMS Ram 1500 trim for firefighters, so we’ll check out this latest installment and see what first responders can expect. 

Ram Unveils Second Installment in Built-to-Serve Line

Ram has announced the second installment of its Built to Serve Lineup. Inspired by first responders, this new Ram 1500 trim will contain materials and features that aid first responders like police officers, firefighters, and emergency medical personnel. The Built to Serve Lineup seeks to honor those individuals who are always giving to others. The latest Ram emergency medical services (EMS) truck aims to recognize the hard work of EMS personnel. About the ‘Built to Serve’ Lineup, Ram brand CEO Mike Koval Jr. said, 

“The Ram 1500 Built to Serve EMS edition is our way of honoring and expressing deep gratitude to the frontline heroes who serve or have served our country,” said Mike Koval Jr. “At Ram, we are pleased to recognize the important work emergency medical service workers provide to their communities every day.”

The latest Ram 1500 EMS trim will be offered with either a Hydro Blue or Bright White exterior color. It will also have a black interior with blue accent stitching. These colors evoke the spirit and history of the EMS personnel. The pickup truck will also have stylish exterior cues like an all-black grille, black bumpers, black-bezel premium lighting, and 20-inch aluminum wheels. There are also black side steps, body-color wheel flares, and a United States flag and Built to Serve decal on the rear quarter panels. 

Inside the Ram 1500 EMS, first responders will note embroidered velcro panels on the front seats for badging. Owners can apply their own patches or flags to personalize their pickup trucks. The front seat-back panels also offer pouch webbing that allows additional equipment to be stored. Ram will begin production of the second installment of Built to Serve trucks in the fourth quarter of 2022. They will start at an MSRP of $54,915 (plus destination fee).

2023 Ram ProMaster Will Replace City Van

The Ram ProMaster City will be phased out in favor of the 2023 Ram ProMaster. Like many other automakers, Ram will be discontinuing sales of its smaller commercial van. Instead, the automaker will focus on its larger ProMaster van as well as an all-electric version. While the ProMaster City offered impressive fuel efficiency, Ram is working to ensure that its remaining commercial vans match that quality and standard. Not to mention electric vans will reduce the need for fuel altogether. We’ll take a look at the upcoming 2023 Ram ProMaster and its EV equivalent and see what consumers can expect.

Ram Will Soon Phase Out ProMaster City Van

Ram will soon discontinue sales of its smaller ProMaster City van. The automaker will be replacing the commercial van with its larger ProMaster van. Ram also hopes to offer consumers an all-electric commercial van. This decision comes from the fact that sales of the smaller ProMaster City are dwindling. From 2016 to 2020 the automaker saw sales decline by as much as 5,000 units. While this may have been in part to the global pandemic and subsequent economic challenges, Ram sees this as the time to move beyond the smaller commercial van. There may be a smaller EV alternative in the future, but as of now, Ram has no plans in the works.

The 2023 Ram ProMaster has already had its debut. The all-new van has been redesigned with a new front end and better-illuminated headlights. There’s also a more accessible roll-up door that makes loading and unloading cargo easier. Ram is offering more customization options so owners will have several choices between vehicle lengths, wheelbases, and roof heights. The ProMaster van will also utilize a 3.6L V6 engine that delivers 276 horsepower and 250lb-ft of torque.

Inside the 2023 ProMaster, owners will note an upgraded interior. The van will offer Uconnect 5 as its infotainment system and it will come with either a 7-inch or a 10-inch touchscreen. This touchscreen will feature a high-resolution backup camera, as well as a 360-degree surround view camera. The new van will also offer advanced safety features like parallel park assist, traffic sign recognition, and active driving assist. The 2023 Ram ProMaster is set to become available in the fall of 2022 while the battery-electric version will come later in 2023.

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.

The Ram 1500 Classic is the Ideal Pickup for Enthusiasts

Ram has been dominating lately with its Ram 1500. The rough and tough pickup was recently ranked first among light-duty pickup trucks in a 2021 APPEAL Study. Given its capability, durability, and overall toughness as a pickup, the Ram 1500 has continued to be an iconic truck. Ram offers the Ram 1500 with a range of combinations and features. Consumers wanting a truck oriented toward hauling can opt for Towing packages while those looking for an everyday truck can opt for more luxurious trims like the Laramie or Rebel trim. Better still, Ram offers specialty Ram trucks like the TRX RexRunner for those wanting more excitement out of their pickup. All these are great choices but one Ram pickup that holds up and is relatively affordable is the Ram 1500 Classic. We’ll take a look at this light-duty pickup and check out its versatility.

Checking Out The Ram 1500 Classic

The Ram 1500 Classic is one of the most affordable yet capable pickups available. The pickup starts at an MSRP of $29,490 (plus destination fee) and comes standard with a 3.6L V6 engine capable of 305 horsepower. Consumers can opt for higher outputs like a 5.7L Hemi V8, but the V6 can certainly get the job done. The Ram 1500 Classic uses an automatic transmission and it can tow up to 8240 pounds when equipped with the right features. Given the capabilities, this pickup is well worth the price.

Where the Ram 1500 Classic shines is with its powertrain and affordable price. While the interior and exterior may not be anything to brag about, it’s likely that those consumers wanting an affordable pickup may not be too concerned with luxury and design. The exterior of the Ram Classic, for example, is a throwback to previous Ram trucks so there isn’t too much in terms of detail. This is also a way to save costs. Still, there are three trim levels for the pickup including the Tradesmen, the Express, and the Warlock. The Tradesmens trim features a black neutral front design and simple wheels. The Express trim comes with a painted front end and upgraded wheels. The Warlock trim is the higher-end of the three and it features a new front fascia and aggressive paint schemes. It also comes with black wheels.

Though the Ram 1500 Classic looks pretty barebones both inside and out, it features different body style options. Consumers can opt for either a two-door style or, with an extended cab option, a four-door style. The Ram’s bed comes standard at 6 foot 4 inches but an 8-foot option can be chosen as well. For those wanting more durability, a 4×4 option is available. Overall, the Ram 1500 Classic is the ultimate pickup in terms of affordability. It’s got toughness and is capable of getting the job done no matter what that may be.

The Ram 1500 is once again in the spotlight as it takes yet another award. The 2021 Ram 1500 TRX was recently awarded the top honor of Texas Truck of the Year. The pickup was also awarded High-Performance Truck of the Year. These accolades all come soon after the Ram 1500 won first place in the 2021 APEAL study. Here the pickup was designated as the best light-duty pickup based on consumer sentiment and feedback. Truly the Ram 1500 is leagues ahead of the competition. The newest accolades for the pickup come from the Texas Motor Press Association Off-Road Invitational which focuses on bringing automotive industry professionals together to highlight different aspects of the industry. The audience is primarily Texas-based but the membership is made up of automotive journalists who cover a range of vehicles from cars, trucks, and SUVs to ATVs and UTVs. They are all knowledgeable and share key insights into the leading vehicles of the automotive industry. In 2021 they recognized the Ram 1500 for its versatility, capability, and overall high performance as a pickup that can get the job done.

Ram 1500 TRX Recognized as Texas Truck of the Year

The 2021 Ram 1500 TRX was recently recognized as the Texas Truck of the Year and the High-Performance Truck of the Year. These accolades come from the 2021 Texas Motor Press Association event that recognizes the best vehicles in the industry. Ram has done a superb job with their Ram 1500. The pickup has served consumers as a powerful and durable vehicle that can handle any job. Towing, hauling, and getting to the destination is what a pickup is about. The Ram does all that and more with the latest technology and safety features. About the Ram 1500, the president of the Texas Motor Press Association Bryan Grant said,

“The challenging off-road trails were no problem for Ram 1500 TRX as it easily trekked over the roads with massive horsepower, multiple drive modes and lofty ground clearance. It was so much fun to experience the truck conquer the trails. We all took notice of the wild animal roar exhaust note off in the distance,” said Bryan Grant, the president of Texas Motor Press Association.

Bryan Grant, President of Texas Motor Press Association

Given the Ram 1500’s capabilities, many recognize it as an industry-standard pickup truck. The Ram truck brand was first started in 2009. It began as a stand-alone division focused on meeting the needs and demands of truck buyers. The brand has grown exponentially over the years as it has expanded its lineup with vehicles like the Ram 1500, Ram 2500/3500 Heavy Duty, and 3500/4500/5500 series Chassis Cabs. The brand also offers its ProMaster vans which allow groups to travel together with their equipment. Overall Ram has stayed true to its mission of building trucks that get hard work done and take families where they need to go.

Ram will continue to build on its lineup as it offers higher performance, greater convenience, and lasting durability. The automaker has racked up award after award each year. As the years go by, people will continue to depend on a strong pickup. With their new Know and Go mobile app, Ram is aiming to increase customer satisfaction and deliver more immersive experiences. We’ll have to see where the automaker goes from here, but right now it looks like its lead is stronger than ever.

What to Know About the All-New 2022 Ram 1500

Ram has updated the 2022 Ram 1500 to be more reliable, more comfortable, and depending on the trim, much more adaptable. The 2022 Ram 1500 is a full-sized pickup capable of getting the job done. If towing or hauling is required, the Ram 1500 is a great choice. For off-roading, the Ram 1500’s BackCountry trim makes for an excellent selection. If performance is preferred, the Ram 1500 features a G/T package that guarantees powerful performance. Truly the Ram 1500 offers versatility unlike any other pickup. Ram has made sure to update its iconic pickup for the 2022 model year with features, upgrades, and interior aesthetics that make it an optimal choice for pickup fans. Ram owners will enjoy comfort and luxury blended into a powerful beast of a pickup. We’ll dive in deeper to see just what Ram owners can expect for the 2022 Ram 1500.

The 2022 Ram 1500 is Versatile

The standard 2022 Ram 1500 comes equipped with a 3.6L V6 engine capable of 305 horsepower. Ram did not update the engine to be more powerful for 2022, but this is where the versatility of the Ram 1500 comes into play. Ram offers several trims and package upgrades that allow Ram owners to customize their pickup how they want. For more power and performance, the Ram G/T sport package for the Laramie and Rebel trims does more than enough. This package includes a unique exhaust system, paddle shifters, and cold-air intake. It features a larger V8 engine, air suspension, and front and rear camera sensors. With this sports package, Ram 1500 owners can push their pickup to peak performance.

Another trim that expands the Ram 1500’s versatility is the BackCountry edition. This trim reinforces off-road capabilities as it makes use of a 4×4 Off-Road Group Package. This package includes tow hooks, skid plates, off-road-tuned shocks, hill descent control, all-terrain tires, and a rear electronic locking differential. The BackCountry Ram 1500 also comes equipped with either a 5.7L Hemi V-8 engine or a 5.7L Hemi V-8 engine with Ram’s eTorque mild hybrid system. Another trim for the Ram 1500 is the Limited 10th Anniversary edition which focuses heavily on luxury. This trim adds comfort and luxury both outside and inside the Ram 1500. There’s truly something for everyone.

Inside the 2022 Ram 1500

The 2022 Ram 1500 features a more comfortable interior. The Limited 10th Anniversary edition bumps interior comfort and luxury up a couple of levels, but the base pickup has its own level as well. Features inside the Ram 1500 include heated leather seats, a panoramic sunroof, and a ton of cabin space. Higher trims include more driver-assist features and conveniences like a 12-inch touchscreen. Of course, these end up costing more but the value of the features makes it well worth it. 

The 2022 Ram 1500 comes with safety features like front and rear parking sensors, a 360° surround-view camera, and automatic emergency braking. The starting price for the 2022 Ram 1500 is $33,975 (plus destination fee), but this price gets more expensive with higher-end trims. The G/T Package, for example, on the Rebel and Laramie trims can go for $47,850 (plus destination fee) and the BackCountry edition goes for $38,700 (plus destination fee). The price points can be discouraging but for the number of features, they can be well worth it. Really it comes down to what Ram owners want out of their 2022 Ram 1500. The pickup offers just about everything a pickup owner could want which makes it so versatile and capable.

2022 Ram ProMaster Van Receives New Transmission and Technology

Ram is bringing music to fans around the country with the return of the Ram BandVan. Ram first launched its BandVan program back in 2018 as a way to help up-and-coming artists and bands by supplying them with a ProMaster van. The automaker partnered with SiriusXM and Pandora to give fans an opportunity to hear their favorite bands live as they toured in the full-sized van. The Back to Live Tour will be launching with the Foo Fighters heading the first act. They will be traveling inside the 2022 Ram ProMaster Van which Ram has recently updated. The van features a new transmission and updated technology and safety features. Artists will be able to enjoy the comfortable and tuned-up BandVan as they travel the country touring.

New Technology Inside the ProMaster Van

The 2022 Ram ProMaster Van has gotten a new interior upgrade. Ram has updated the transmission, infotainment system, and safety features. Each van is powered by a transverse-mounted 3.6L V6 engine capable of 280 horsepower and 260lb-ft of torque. The addition of a new nine-speed automatic transmission has allowed the front wheels to be utilized more. Ram has stated that this new automatic transmission will help improve fuel efficiency and deliver smoother gear changes. 

Aside from the transmission, Ram has upgraded the interior cabin of the 2022 ProMaster Van. The van’s center stack has been redesigned with a new 7.0-inch touchscreen. An optional 10-inch touchscreen is also available. The touchscreen systems feature Uconnect5 software which enables over-the-air updates. It also enables wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well as Amazon Alexa voice assist. Additional upgrades include more charging ports, two USB and USB Type-C ports, and a 115-volt outlet. The 2022 Ram ProMaster Van also includes a revised center stack that features HVAC controls that replace older rotary knobs. A new panel of switches replaces hazard lights, traction control, and more. The steering wheel comes with more controls and the driver has a more modern instrument panel.

The last change to the 2022 ProMaster Van is a multitude of driver and safety assist technologies. The previous year’s model introduced new active safety features like automated emergency braking and blind-spot monitoring. Now, the full-sized van has a 360-degree camera, automatic high-beam headlights, adaptive cruise control, front parking sensors, and lane-keeping assist. Bands and artists can rest easy knowing they’re safe on the road in the Ram BandVan. Ram hasn’t announced pricing for the 2022 ProMaster Van yet, but prices aren’t likely to be too much higher from previous years. The full-sized commercial van will go on sale in the fourth quarter of 2021.
