The 2024 Ram 1500 REV Has 1 Unique Advantage Over EV Rivals

It’s almost time for the 2024 Ram 1500 EV to arrive, and it will do things a bit differently. Perhaps you shared your ideas with the ongoing Ram Revolution to help create the best electric truck possible. Check out what feature makes a significant difference for the 2024 Ram 1500 REV. 

What is the 2024 Ram 1500 REV

The 2024 Ram 1500 REV could be the official name for the upcoming electric Ram truck. According to MoparInsiders, REV may refer to the Range Electric Paradigm Breaker (REPB). The REPB is a fancy term for the range extender. 

The Ram 1500 REV would have an advantage over rivals such as the Ford F-150 Lightning, Chevy Silverado 1500 EV, and GMC Hummer EV. It would ease range anxiety with the ability to travel if you run out of charge. 

Also, it could come in handy while towing since electric trucks tend to lose tons of range while pulling trailers. Cold weather and inclement road conditions can reduce the battery’s charge as well. 

How does the Ram REV system work? 

The 2024 Ram 1500 REV could stand for Range Extended Vehicle. This rumor is based on the fact that Stellantis recently got a trademark filed for this term with the United States Patent Trademark Office (USPTO). It’s a bit easier to say and remember than REPB. 

It’s possible that the Ram 1500 REV could feature a smaller displacement gasoline-powered engine that acts as a generator to recharge the batteries. It could be similar to how the Chevy Volt used to operate. 

This would mean that the engine wouldn’t power the wheels at all. It would come on to power the batteries when the charge gets low. Perhaps it would kick in while towing or off-roading too. It could help power the truck in freezing temperatures too. 

It’s possible that the RAM 1500 REV could have a different battery than the Ram 1500 BEV. BEV refers to the battery electric vehicle. This REV could be a different trim model that costs more. 

However, we can speculate that it has less electric power than the BEV model as well. It could be a lower-priced work truck model, like the Ford F-150 Lightning Pro when it first came out. 

What else do we know about the electric Ram 1500?

Clues about the 2024 Ram 1500 REV have been kept under wraps, but RAM CEO, Mike Koval, shared that the Ram 1500 EV will outperform rivals regarding towing. So, it will need to tow over 11,000 lbs to beat the Rivian R1T. 

The Ford F-150 Lightning cranks out up to 580 hp, and the Chevy Silverado 1500 EV could deliver up to 754 hp. It’s unclear how much power the Ram 1500 BEV will provide. 

However, Stellantis expected the electric Ram 1500 to have over 500 miles of range, which would outperform rivals. The truck rides on the Stellantis STLA architecture, which is a scalable platform that could support the batteries necessary for more range. 

We will learn more soon! The Ram 1500 BEV will make its debut during the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) show on January 5th. Stay tuned for the latest updates.
