Okay, the electric truck party has started. Early to arrive is the Rivian R1T, which kicked things off by showing everybody its fancy new smart watch. Soon after came the Ford F-150 Lightning, the punctual friend that brought a dish to pass, but its dry personality keeps it from being the life of the party. Then came the GMC Hummer EV: the fun one that everybody is curious about. Its friends Silverado EV and Sierra EV are on the way, too. The Cybertruck is horribly late, claiming it’s “on the way” when in reality it’s still on the couch, scrolling Tinder, despite the party being Tesla’s big idea in the first place. Late to RSVP but nevertheless on the way, the Stellantis people are coming, as well. And they’ve dressed up the 2025 Ram REV electric truck in a fancy outfit they’re calling Tungsten.

Tungsten is both a rare and strong metal. It has the highest melting point, highest boiling point, and lowest vapor pressure of all known metals, and is nearly twice as dense as lead. It’s also known as wolfram, and is used in applications ranging from metal alloys, to Formula 1 ballasts, to nuclear fusion reactors. Lastly, Tungsten represents what will be the range-topping Ram 1500 REV electric pickup truck trim level.
