Ram to Compete in EV Sector with its First All-Electric Pickup

Friday, July 23rd, 2021

Ram is looking to join the EV competition as it focuses on its own electric pickup. Announced for early 2024, Ram is releasing snippets about its all-new all-electric Ram 1500 pickup. Ram has stated that its new electric pickup truck will surpass rivals like Ford and Tesla, but Ram fans will have to wait a little while longer to see the full capabilities of the all-new all-electric Ram 1500. Using information leaks and teaser images, we can speculate on what Ram will have in mind to outpace its competitors. 

What to Expect of the All-New All-Electric Ram 1500

Given Ram’s statements and messaging, it’s safe to say that Ram is confident about its upcoming electric pickup. Their new brand statement makes a small change that encapsulates their future vision. Originally just, “Built to serve,” Ram has added an extra part to its slogan, “Built to serve a sustainable planet.” Simple yet effective, Ram’s new brand statement lays a good foundation for its future endeavors. It highlights their goals as they enter the EV sector.

With an idea of Ram’s future plans for their lineup, it leaves fans and consumers wanting a bit more in terms of the pickup’s capabilities. Slow leaks and teaser photos seem to be Ram’s preferred method, however. About this, the senior manager of Ram brand marketing, Carl Lally stated:

“What we’ve heard from our consumers is that they’re not looking for a compromised truck solution, so really, some of the core attributes that we communicate to our customers about our trucks, the capability, and the durability, those aren’t going to change, I think, as you look forward to an EV-oriented truck product.” 

Carl Lally, Senior Manager of Ram Brand Marketing

This statement may entice Ram fans because it means that Ram is not going for a completely new overhaul for its all-new electric Ram 1500. As the saying goes, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” Ram has been rolling out high-performance pickups for years. Their formula for creating a pickup truck that is both durable and capable of getting the job done has proven to be successful, so they won’t be altering it too much. Instead, it seems Ram will focus on bringing consumers an electric pickup truck that is efficient and environmentally friendly. Production of an effective electric vehicle involves good range and adequate charging capabilities. A pickup version includes all this, but it comes with an emphasis on power and performance. Ram seems to be fully aware of this so we’ll have to see what decisions they decide on for the all-new all-electric Ram 1500.

What is Known so Far

What is known about the all-new all-electric Ram 1500 is that it will ride on a newly developed truck platform known as the STLA Frame. This new body-on-frame architecture will be utilized for several other models across the Stellantis brand. The STLA Frame will be able to accommodate battery pack sizes from 159 kWh to 200 kWh. These battery packs will be able to provide a range of up to 500 miles per charge. This platform will also enable e-AWD thanks to front- and rear-axle electric motors. 

Ram’s all-new all-electric Ram 1500 will face tough competition. Slated to debut in 2024, the electric pickup will follow the Ford F-150 Lightning, the Chevrolet Silverado Electric, and others like the Tesla Cybertruck. Ram fans will have to wait patiently for more details about the new electric pickup, but from what can be deciphered, Ram has something very special in store for its first all-electric pickup.

What’s New?

With so many companies offering new upgrades and special edition vehicles, those seeking to improve their lineup have to go all out. Stellantis certainly understood this as they aimed for the best when making upgrades to the Ram 1500 Laramie and Rebel. Coming with a cold-end exhaust and cold-air intake system, these powerful new trims will feature a 5.7L Hemi V8 engine with eTorque and mild-hybrid assist. 

Along with high performance, the 2022 Ram 1500 Laramie G/T and Rebel G/T will focus on bringing luxury to consumers. These new pickups will receive sport performance hoods and unique G/T exterior graphics. On their vision for these new trucks, Ram CEO Mike Koval Jr. says:

“Ram has a strong history of performance trucks, and the Laramie G/T and Rebel G/T models add to that while expanding the light-duty lineup with the segment’s best combination of performance, capability, luxury, and technology,” said Mike Koval Jr., Ram brand chief executive officer-Stellantis. “Ram 1500 G/T buyers will enjoy this combination of performance and luxury that the newest additions to our versatile lineup offer.”

Interior of the 2022 Ram 1500 Laramie G/T and Rebel G/T

The interior of the 2022 Ram 1500 Laramie and Rebel G/T pickups will feature updates similar to those found on TRX models.

Additional features include a metal pedal kit, steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters, and a console-mounted performance shift. Another special treat offered inside these new pickups is the addition of performance pages. Ram is connecting these performance pages to the G/T’s Uconnect system. This will allow drivers to view information such as engine performance, 0-60 times, and G-forces.

The luxury look is completed inside the 2022 Ram 1500 Laramie G/T and Rebel G/T with all-weather floor mats from Mopar. As far as technology and infotainment go, the Laramie G/T and Rebel G/T will most likely offer the latest additions and improvements available to Ram. Also available is the addition of a Crew Cab configuration. This means up to 5 people can comfortably sit inside these luxury pickups.

The 2022 Ram 1500 Laramie G/T will come with a starting price of $55,480 MSRP (plus destination fee). The Rebel G/T will start at $55,375 MSRP (plus destination fee).

Here’s Where the Ram 1500 Really Shines

Friday, June 18th, 2021

The 2021 Ram 1500 more than holds its own against its competitors when outshining the competitive full-size pickup segment.

Designed as a competent off-roader, the Ram 1500 TRX is equipped with a sturdy off-road chassis and suspension, but when it comes to the interior cabin, every single Ram 1500 trim hits it out of the park.  (more…)
