Heavily awarded, much loved, and always durable, the much-anticipated 2025 Ram 1500 series is finally beginning production soon. Officially scheduled to roll off the line at the Sterling Heights Assembly Plant on February 25th, 2024, this new version promises to deliver a very awesome overhaul from last year’s model. This marks the introduction here at Landmark Dodge of Morrow of the all-new twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter Hurricane Inline 6 engine family, which is standing by trustily on deck to replace the long-standing 5.7-liter HEMI V8.
This drastic changeup is certain to boost the truck’s legendary power, as well as its fuel efficiency. The 2025 Ram 1500 offers customers 3 engine options, including the all-new twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter Hurricane S/O and H/O I6 engines. The 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 with the eTorque mild-hybrid system has already solidified its robust spot in the lineup, remaining solid and unchanged in the spec department. The incoming and quite ferocious Hurricane S/O officially cranks out 420 horsepower and 469 lb-ft of torque, with the H/O engine delivering 540 horsepower and 521 lb-ft.
The truck wars waging nationwide have greatly intensified over the past few years, and the Ram line has stood out effectively with towing capability and an appropriately rugged skillset. The high-powered and incoming troupe boasts an 11,580-lb towing capacity along with a maximum payload of 2,300 pounds, and up to two very valuable feet of water fording. Diehard Ram lovers were closely watching the exterior design for any intense changeups, and the new model marks a movement towards a more contemporary and streamlined aesthetic.
There are also now very cool upgraded LED headlamps and a much bolder grille, and industry review professionals have claimed that the Ram does a fantastic job of maintaining its trademark look while adapting to meet the various consumer demands of the future. As soon as powertrains and off-road capability improved drastically nearly a decade ago, truck fans began to anxiously tap their feet and inquire about greater cargo management capability. The RamBox system is the outdoor lover or busy contractor’s dream come true, with locking illuminated storage bins and an on-pint pickup bed divider to make all the pertinent “truck stuff” easier.
The usual and robust Ram crew is standing by and demo-caliber prepped for action, with the work-ready Tradesman, Big Horn/Lone Star for broad appeal, off-road mastery of the Rebel, and premium essence of the Limited trims. The Wild-West ready Limited Longhorn and brand-new Tungsten trims also both stop up vigorously to the plate to guarantee a distinguished step up from last year’s models. Many aficionados have long hailed the HEMI badge as a stamp of very apt approval, and insider sources claim that its official phasing out will begin soon.
The Motor Trend crew had recently recognized on one of their blogs that truck buyers are not necessarily keen on trucks that “don't post big-time capability numbers”, while still craving the luxurious and upscale design of the Tungsten trim’s variety. As far as the competition from Chevy and Ford is concerned, we are confident that the Ram has continued to evolve into the savvy visionary’s ideal rig, while still meeting the expectations and projection of “all-out warrior stance.”
The power tailgate now offers obstacle detection, which allows you to open the tailgate directly from your key fob. Attentively keeping up with the times, an on-board inverter for the 2025 Ram 1500 produces up to 2 kW to necessary appliances, directly from two covered outlets in the bed. A few of the additives that make the Hurricane engine so special are two high-flow turbochargers, and a liquid-cooled charge cooler to assure that the setup offers the best possible performance.
