Ram 1500 Revolution Pickup Revealed As Chevy Silverado EV, GMC Sierra EV Rival49
The all-electric pickup wars are heating up, with GM fielding the Chevy Silverado EV and GMC Sierra EV. Now, a new combatant is poised to enter the fray, with Stellantis unveiling the new Ram 1500 Revolution concept.
Recently debuting at the 2023 Consumer Electronics Show (CES), the Ram 1500 Revolution pickup debuts a new look with a redesigned fascia treatment, as well as animated badging and full LED lighting for the “tuning fork” headlamp design. The truck also features a deleted the B-pillar, providing “grand saloon-style” doors for easier ingress and egress.
The Ram 1500 Revolution features an all-new interior layout as well, which is flexible and configurable to offer a workspace, a removable center console, and fold-flat surfaces. Another highlight of the cabin are the third-row jump seats, which are located on the power-operated mid-gate. The mid-gate also incorporates a removable lower section with a passthrough to accommodate objects up to 18 feet in length, stretching all the way into the frunk.
As for the power specs, the Ram 1500 Revolution Pickup is motivated by a pair of electric drive motors with all-wheel-drive capability, as well as four-wheel steering with upwards of 15 degrees of articulation for enhanced maneuverability. The onboard battery can juice up with as much as 100 miles of range in just 10 minutes thanks to 800-volt DC quick-charging capability up to 350 kW.
Under the body, the Ram 1500 Revolution Pickup rides on the STLA body-on-frame architecture, which was designed specifically for full-size EVs. The pickup also runs underbody aero panels and an active diffuser for streamlined aero and more range.
Stellantis states that the Ram 1500 Revolution will get a full-fledged production model in 2024, which is set to debut “in the coming months.” The automaker also claims that it will be a leader in the “areas customers car about the most: range, towing, payload and charge time.”

If I was a truck guy this would be at the top of my list.
The first to market is oftentimes not the winner. With your logic GM should cancel their program, too, and leave it all for Ford & Rivian.
Love the profile. Looks a bit like Range Rover. The front (tuning forks) and rear lighting suck, aren’t sleek like ICE RAM, but I kinda predicted that when FCA sold Magnetti.
This isn’t an FCA truck and that scares me. PSA, Stellantis, is now in control, but Carlos Taveres is smart enough, especially after a disappointment or two, to use the FCA NA staff.
RAM has surpassed Chevrolet and will keep growing. Sergio Marchionne was brilliant making RAM it’s own brand, making Dodge niche, focusing on Jeep. In 2008 Chrysler Corp was the automaker they said couldn’t be saved.
Chevy surpassed ford and ram and dodge and toyota and will keep growing and never stop. Chevy beats dodge so much that everybody hates dodge rams. Chevy makes the real trucks, and you know it. Chevy Silverado is Americas number one truck, and Chevy embarrasses ford and dodge every second, SOOOOOOOO
Stop and think a little before you post. You come off sounding like a seven year old whose been hit in the head with a BIG rock.
Everybody knows you got hit on the head with a lot of rocks, not me, sooooo
It looks good, but I have zero confidence in Stellantis and their follow through with this. I doubt it will ever come to market.
OK so, in a roll-over you’re headless, and in a T-Bone, people on the hit side are dead and then as it rolls over, well you know the rest.
Let me guess during a Michigan winter You can get 160 miles of normal driving range or 75 miles while towing 🙂 LOL
