2025 Ram 1500: Everything You Need to Know About the Refreshed Pickup Truck – One of the most famous and valuable full-size pickup trucks on the market, the Ram 1500 isn’t going to sit back and relax. The Ram 1500 will get a facelift in 2025 to update the truck’s outside and inside. It will also get a new engine choice and an electric version. Find out everything you need to know about the new 2025 Ram 1500.
What’s Different in 2025?
The 2025 Ram 1500 will have a new look thanks to some changes in how it looks. The front end will have new bumpers, headlights, and grilles. The back end will have new lamps and trunk decorations. There will also be new wheels and color options for the truck.
The Ram 1500 is expected to get a digital set of gauges and a new infotainment system with a giant touchscreen inside. Also, the truck will keep coming in various trims and options, from the basic Tradesman to the high-end Limited.
But the most important news for 2025 is that a new engine choice and an electric version will be available. The Hurricane twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six engine from Stellantis will be used in the Ram 1500. This engine makes up to 510 horsepower in the Jeep Grand Wagoneer. It will replace the current 3.6-liter V-6 and 5.7-liter V-8 engines and probably be faster and use less gas.
The electric version, called the Ram 1500 REV, will be a gas-powered truck that runs on batteries. This electric car will come with two battery pack choices: a 168-kWh pack that can pull up to 14,000 pounds and a 229-kWh pack that can go up to 500 miles. The electric truck will also be able to quickly charge and have four-wheel control and a changeable air suspension.
Design: Exterior and Interior
The 2025 Ram 1500 will still have a rough and powerful look on the outside, but some minor changes will make it look more modern and appealing. The front end will add new headlights with LED daytime running lights and LED details. The grille will have different patterns and shapes depending on the trim level, from flat bars to honeycomb mesh. Not only will the bumper have tow hooks, but it will also have bigger air vents and tail lights.
Some new wheel styles will range in size from 18 to 22 inches, but the truck’s side profile will stay mostly the same. A few types of trucks will also have side steps, trunk flares, and mirrors that fold down automatically.
Taillights will be changed on the back of the truck. They will have LEDs and the same shape as the headlights. Depending on the trim level, the trunk will have different small pieces, such as RAM or LARAMIE writing. On some types, the bumper will have built-in two exhaust tips and a step that makes getting into the bed easy.
There will still be plenty of room inside the 2025 Ram 1500 for up to five people, thanks to its roomy and comfortable interior design. The truck will also be well-made and high-quality, with leather seats, soft-touch materials, and wood details on some types.
There will be a set of digital gauges on the truck’s panel that show things like speed, fuel level, tire pressure, and more. A newer infotainment system with a more giant tablet will be in the center console. It will support Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, wireless charging, mapping, and more. A rotary dial will be used to choose the gear, and the truck will also have buttons and knobs for the music system, climate control, and drive modes.
Some types of truck seats will be able to be heated, cooled, and massaged, and they will be supportive and comfy. There will be plenty of width and headroom in the back seats, and they can be folded down and leaned back for extra cargo space. The truck will also have a lot of storage room inside, with door pockets, cup boxes, a glove box, a center armrest, bins under the seats, and more.
The 2025 Ram 1500 will have two main fuel choices: an engine that runs on gas and an electric drive.
Stellantis’ Hurricane twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six will be the gas-powered engine. It will replace the current 3.6-liter V-6 and 5.7-liter V-8 engines. The engine will come in two different output levels. The base version will have 420 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque, and the high-output version will have 510 horsepower and 500 pound-feet of torque. The engine will be paired with either rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, as well as an eight-speed automatic gear.
The fuel-powered Ram 1500 will have an electric motor built into its electric form, the Ram 1500 REV. Two battery packs will be available for the electric truck: a 168-kWh pack that can pull up to 14,000 pounds and a 229-kWh pack that can go up to 500 miles. The electric truck will also be able to quickly charge and have four-wheel control and a changeable air suspension.
