The all-new 2025 Ram 1500 Ramcharger has debuted with battery-electric vehicle technology bringing a new level of performance with and a targeted range of up to 690 miles 

All-New 2025 Ram 1500 Ramcharger Capabilities

Vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-home bi-directional charging enables the Ram 1500 Ramcharger to charge another Stellantis battery-electric vehicle or provide power back to the grid. An onboard power panel in the bed can provide up to 7.2 kW. 

Targeted performance figures include a 0-60 miles per hour (mph) time of 4.4 seconds, 663 horsepower and over 615 lb.-ft. of torque, up to a best-in-class 14,000 pounds towing with a class 5 hitch and a maximum payload capacity of 2,625 pounds. 

The 2025 Ram 1500 Ramcharger's liquid-cooled 92 kilowatt-hour (kWh) battery pack is paired with a 3.6-liter V-6 engine on-board 130 kW generator, sending power to a 250-kilowatt (kW) front and 238 kW rear electric drive module (EDM). The EDMs combine the motor, gearbox and inverter along with all-wheel-drive capability.

Mechanical Power and Battery Charging Capabilities

The 2025 Ram 1500 Ramcharger features one EDM on the front axle with an automatic wheel-end disconnect allowing the front wheels to spin freely in certain conditions. The second EDM is positioned on the rear axle with an available electronic-locking rear differential. 

Power flows in sequence from the 3.6-liter V-6 engine to the on-board 130 kW generator. The engine generates mechanical power which is converted to electrical power by the generator. The electrical power can be used to charge the battery when the battery is depleted or if the driver wants to preserve battery power.

It can also be applied to the high-voltage bus where the EDMs can use the generator electrical power plus the battery electrical power to provide maximum power to the wheels. There is no direct mechanical path from the engine to the wheels. 

The 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine is adapted for the specific mission of powering the on-board generator, with unique packaging to make room for the front EDM. The on-board generator  mounts directly to the engine while a power inverter module mounts on the vehicle and connects  to a junction box. 

A liquid-cooled 92 kWh battery pack features a design that incorporates the pack efficiently with a pouch cell format in a parallel configuration. Ramcharger’s battery is positioned under the floor in the center of the truck and maintains a flat floor. Ram offers the ability to add up to 50 miles of all-electric range in approximately 10 minutes with  400-volt DC fast charging at up to 145 kW. 

An All-New High-Stregnth Steel Frame for Durability

The 2025 Ram 1500 Ramcharger utilizes the all-new STLA Frame platform and is designed specifically for full-size electric vehicles featuring a body-on-frame design. The STLA Frame is wider in the middle to efficiently incorporate the battery pack while still using protection afforded by the frame rails. 

A multi-link independent rear suspension features standard, segment-exclusive, active-level, four-corner air suspension. The adjustable air suspension enables five different modes: entry/exit, aero, normal, off-road 1 and off-road 2. 

Autonomous Drive Assist System (ADAS) vehicle capabilities include Hands-free Highway Assist (L2+) offering hands-off driving at all speeds and lane centering on approved roadways for even greater driving convenience. The system will predictively slow the vehicle down in tight curves, automatically resume control after driver override and verify that the driver is paying attention to the road. Autonomous parallel and perpendicular parking assist is also available and uses multiple sensors, including radars and cameras, to dictate appropriate roads for the technology. 

Unique Exterior Design Distinguishes Ramcharger in the Light-Duty Lineup 

The 2025 Ram 1500 Ramcharger features a large, forward-leaning grille features subtle styling differences and a prominent R-A-M badge. The Ram 1500 Ramcharger embraces a modern, body-color front fascia to differentiate it from the  rest of the light-duty lineup while maintaining Ram’s DNA. 

A drawn body-side character line stretches from front to rear, tying together the front fender, cab doors and bed fenders for a consistent horizontal profile. The bed and cab are sub-flush to reduce aerodynamic disturbances.

The charge port has been placed on the driver’s side front quarter panel and, when plugged in, the R-A-M badge pulsates to indicate the charging status. An audible sound signals the Ram 1500 Ramcharger is plugged in and charging has begun. The charge port features Level 1 and Level 2 AC charging on the top half and DC fast charging on the bottom half of the charger. 

An all-new power tailgate and a new, modern and contemporary R-A-M badge are unique to the lineup. Like the front, the rear of the Ram 1500 Ramcharger features an all-new, EV-specific, premium LED taillight design that spans onto the tailgate. 

The new 2025 Ram 1500 Ramcharger offers lockable bed storage with the RamBox featuring a 115-volt outlet. RamBox is illuminated, highly versatile, weatherproof, lockable and includes drain plugs on the bottom of the storage bins. 

Leading-Edge Technology Interior Features  

Interior technology includes the Uconnect 5 system with a new 14.5-inch touchscreen, 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, a segment-first 10.25-inch passenger screen, digital rearview mirror, Head-up Display (HUD) and a Klipsch Reference Premiere audio system. 

Other features include:

  • An e-shifter (P/R/N/D functionality with new buttons for eco mode,  e-save and electric+)
  • New regen buttons (normal, max regen with one pedal driving)
  • Aredesigned starter button that now features an illuminated power symbol
  • Push-button trailer steering knob and an accessory switch bank that when equipped with the 14.5-inch touchscreen, uses buttons both on the bottom of the touchscreen and directly off screen below. 

The 2025 Ram 1500 Ramcharger uses performance-tuned software to pre-configure and distinguish five dynamic modes – Auto, Sport, Tow, Snow and Off-road – enabling drivers to choose a vehicle setting that ideally meets their requirements and ambient conditions. The drive modes separately control the drive system, accelerator response, regen level, suspension and steering.
