The 2025 Ram 1500 might be coming sooner than we thought. While Ram has not provided any data on when it might launch, the 2024 Ram 1500 has gone into buildout, and none are available for ordering. (This only applies to the newer Ram 1500, not the old “DS” Ram 1500 Classic.
Ram 1500 pricing and lease rates haven’t been established yet. The base models will continue to use Pentastar V6 engines with eight-speed automatics, while Hemi versions will switch to the Hurricane twin-turbo inline six-cylinder engines. Turbocharged inline engines are not new to Ram—every Cummins diesel in Ram Heavy Duty pickups since the 1980s has been a turbocharged inline six-cylinder—but these will be the first Rams ever to have no V8 option. Dodge trucks have had V8s since the 1950s; earlier models, back to the Dodge Brothers’ builds, had either four or six cylinders.
There will be two electric Ram 1500s, the Ram 1500 REV and the Ramcharger; the latter uses a Pentastar V6 engine, but only as a power generator. Its powertrain is much more like a locomotive’s than a Prius’.
