It’s impossible to deny that the new Ram 1500 REV pickup truck is consistently the talk of the lot here at Landmark Dodge of Morrow, as it eagerly took center stage at the Consumer Electronics Show with a model that arrived straight from the future. This capable and feature-rich rig arrives for the 2025 model year and is on track to lead the pack as the most impressive and high-tech electric half-ton available out there. It will offer more of what the average and hard-working truck driver is looking for, and some of these features will assure anyone who wondered if the quirks of electrification would satisfy the diehard Ram fan!
Tremendous & Fierce Towing Ability:
Only the brand-new Tesla Cybertruck matches the Ram 1500 REV in the towing department, with the stat residing at a quite healthy 14,000 lbs. The Cybertruck may hit the market a little faster than the Ram, but we'd have to admit that the Ram is probably going to fit in quite a bit better on the construction site! When customers are looking for the truck that suits their needs best, we can assure you that lugging power is at the top of the list.
Adjustable Air Suspension’s Sensational Stability:
Ram has long been known for its air suspension technology and its segment-leading comfort. With five unique adjustable settings, it ensures that owners can easily handle the drive whether it’s on pavement or a boulder-strewn trail. The new Ram can blast up to 60 mph in less than five seconds with the larger battery pack and will likely hail its segment as the fastest truck available, while also being able to back up its words with quite solid actions in the speed department.
Raising the Bar for Storage Solutions:
One of the most common reasons for purchasing a truck is to be able to tow and haul, and along with that duty is the importance of cargo space. The new Ram 1500 REV starts things off with a unique split-door tailgate that makes getting to one side of the bed easier than on many other tailgates. The cargo bed floor also extends to the rear to make more cargo room for the useful cargo stop that is conveniently built directly into the tailgate.
Hefty Hauler, Meet Hands-Free Driving:
Pressure has admittedly been on for the Ram 1500 REV to offer a hands-free driving system like GM and Ford. The respective versions of Blue Cruise and Super Cruise allow drivers the chance to relax a bit while on the highway while putting their trust in very advanced semi-autonomous technology. These systems operate quite well on more than 200,00 miles of pre-mapped roads, and the big question remains to be whether the Ram’s version will allow for use of the system while towing.
A Tale of Double Infotainment Goodness:
The Ram 1500 was destined to remain much more desirable than other pickup trucks in the segment when it first came on the scene with an extra-large 12.0-inch tablet-style infotainment screen. There’s now an option to boost the size up to 14.5 inches, with the new screen offering the advanced Uconnect 5 infotainment programming that pipes in navigation, climate, entertainment, and useful information controls for the drive. There’s also an additional 10.25-inch screen that provides alternate camera views, extended navigation features, and entertainment options.
“Always Appreciating a Hearty Heads Up:”
The development of more advanced technology offered inside the cabin can distract the driver greatly, especially with these very large touch screens. The new Ram models will include an additional 10-inch head-up display in the new electric pickup to address this issue. The display will provide pertinent data that the driver can keep prominently in their safe-zone sightline. Here there is access to cruise control options, driver assist settings, navigation, gearing choices, and speed limit information.
Key Access Via Smartphone for the Win:
As consumers find themselves using their smartphones for more of life’s daily tasks, Ram has now added the technology that turns the smartphone into a key. This helps drivers cut down on the “mini extras” needed for each trip and allows for unlocking the truck with your smart device when you’re nearby. This feature allows you to share the key much easier than a physical replica, as you can simply allow access to other devices if a friend or relative wants to borrow your wheels in a pinch.
