2 Reasons the 2025 Ram 1500 REV Could Dethrone the Ford F-150 Lightning
The 2025 Ram 1500 REV is Ram’s first fully-electric pickup truck. Stellantis is working on electrifying its portfolio of brands. The American automaker will produce several competitive fully-electric models in the next few years. The upcoming Ram 1500 REV could be a huge problem for the Ford F-150 Lightning in the future.
Ram produces high-quality pickup trucks
Ram is best known for producing one of the most popular full-size pickup trucks in America: the Ram 1500. The Ram 1500 is a half-ton pickup truck that can function as a sturdy work truck and a comfy daily driver. It has become the truck of choice for many American drivers because of its utility and quality.
The Ford F-150 is America’s favorite truck, but many argue that it’s a better pickup than the more popular Ford F-150 half-ton truck. While that’s a battle for a different article, it’s hard to deny that either truck has shaped the way Americans travel and work today. Ram has played an important role in creating the identity of the ideal American pickup truck. The Ram 1500 fights hard for the top spot year after year.
So, Ram’s development of a fully-electric pickup truck should concern the Blue Oval. Since the Ram 1500 is the natural Ford F-150 rival, the Ram 1500 REV is going up against the popular Ford F-150 Lightning when it hits the scene. The F-150 Lightning better be prepared.
Ram’s new electric pickup truck has incredible available features
Ram debuted a prototype of the Ram 1500 REV at CES 2023. The American automaker teased plenty of potential features that could become available features for the production model. Some of the coolest features include third-row jump seats, shadow mode (a mode that allows the truck to remotely follow the driver), and a retractable steering wheel (according to The Verge).
The Ford F-150 Lightning has plenty of great available features. GM has teased awesome features for the Chevy Silverado EV as well. Ram is setting the 1500 REV apart from competitors by bringing some completely new features to the table. Some of the more complex driver assistance and safety features could cost a pretty penny, but they’ll be more than worth the money in the eyes of thousands of consumers.
The race to create the most popular electric pickup truck is underway. Which automaker will come out on top?
The race to produce the most popular electric truck
Several automakers including Ford and General Motors are attempting to produce the best electric truck models. Thus far, the Ford F-150 Lightning is the most popular electric truck in North America. The Rivian R1T was the first electric pickup truck to hit American roads. The R1T is too expensive for most drivers, so the F-150 Lightning has become more popular over time.
The Chevrolet Silverado EV WT base model will have a starting price within the same price range as the base model F-150 Lightning Pro. As long as the Ram 1500 REV is priced competitively, it has as good a chance as any electric pickup truck to dominate the segment.
