Ram 1500 Rev’s Concept Revealed to Dealers
Ram is preparing to deliver a model of a vehicle that will anticipate the debut of their first mid-sized battery-powered pickup, reported by merchants who took part in the firm’s council in Las Vegas last week.
Reports have suggested that the upcoming mid-size Ram truck will possess a design that’s analogous to the full-size Ram 1500 Revolution delineated at last January’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES). This was affirmed by Mike Koval Jr., the Chief Executive Officer of Ram, at a briefing for vendors. Nonetheless, Automotive News has revealed that the prototype for this smaller truck will not be quite as sophisticated as the Revolution.
Randy Dye, the dealer council chairman for Stellantis in 2022, was utterly amazed by the newest concept, stating “it is amazing!”: “Spectacular” best describes this innovative design.
At the Las Vegas show, dealers found that Stellantis had shown off in excess of 30 products produced by its extensive portfolio of makes. One such offering was the innovative plan for the forthcoming model of the Durango SUV with an appearance drastically contrasting to the current generation. As well as this conception, there was also a smaller and cheaper alternative of an electric pickup truck.
No longer, since Ram has no mid-size truck in their inventory after the discontinuation of the Dakota back in 2011. The light-duty pickup truck had a frame built similarly to the Durango SUV, yet the latter’s 3rd generation endured on the same platform as that of the Jeep Grand Cherokee.
All things considered, it seems that Stellantis is aiming to rejuvenate the intermediate models of the Ram range, with plans to incorporate all-electric models, per Randy Dye’s statement.
Poised on the STLA Frame building blocks, which can support battery packs in the 101 to 118 kWh range (allowing for a probable cruising distance of 500 miles), the reveal date of the imminent all-electric mid-sized pickup has yet to be declared.
At the commencement of the year, Ram rolled out the full-sized 1500 Revolution concept, before subsequently displaying the factory version of their all-electric 1500 REV truck. The plan was that production would begin in 2024.
