The electric trucks launched by Ford and Chevrolet won’t be limited to just a couple of models, nor will the Ram Revolution product line. Ram CEO Mike Koval himself was the one that eluded to this being the case when chatting with media outlets ahead of the the Ram 1500 Revolution Concept reveal at the 2023 Consumer Electronics Show. He indicated that the EV range would include work truck models as well as the high-performance off-road TRX version.
Ram Revolution Trim Level: Details
A recent interview between Motor Authority and Koval, Ram intends to offer Revolution products for everyone, just as they have with the current Ram 1500 line. From the entry-level “Tradesmen,” which is the work-oriented version of the BEV trucks. The Longhorn and Limited Premium models will also be added to the Ram Revolution trim levels, and the extremely popular TRX will be making its way to Baja dunes as an electrified vehicle.
Considering the added weight that electric trucks carry, understanding the physics of jumping a big-battery-powered baja truck is probably best left to the engineers.
Koval also stated that their focus on launching the Ram Revolution line within the light-duty full-size truck range is due to that segment making up more than 60% of the brand’s sales volume, thus making the EV range fit into that same market a natural position. While the concept truck we saw at CES 2023 is loaded with features you never knew you needed in a truck, it’s more of a “visionary roadmap” of the direction the brand is heading in, including what customers and fans see for the brand heading into the future. As a result, the production vehicles we’ll be getting won’t be as loaded as the concept vehicle but more of a descendant of it.
The Ram BEV and REPB (Range Extender Version) will likely have a long production run throughout the remainder of the decade, with the production cycle ending in 2031, which will give the truck brand plenty of time to integrate the technology into the production models moving forward. Luckily, the electric trucks will ride on the STLA architecture, which is highly versatile and spacious, giving plenty of room for creativity for future products.
