Our eyes were stunned at what’s new this week. The concept van features impressive suicide doors, seven seats, and a trick bed that can extend up to 18 feet. We also learned that it gets DC fast charging, 35-inch wheels, and more. What we didn’t learn was how much horsepower the new one had. Or did we?
How much horsepower does the Ram Revolution have?
We could ask: How much horsepower does the Revolution have? But a better question might be: How much power can you have? You see, Ram told us a lot, without saying much, about the truck’s horsepower. In its briefing, Ram said the truck will have a large battery and two electric motors for all-wheel drive, but not much else.
The tech-dense 2021 rundown for the STLA truck platform gives us several clues. STLA Frame Yes, this truck has a frame, not a unibody, it has 500 miles of range and accepts up to two electric motors. It may have more power.
Stellantis produces three electric motors ranging from 70 kW, or 94 horsepower, to 330 kW, or 442.5 horsepower. So if Ram drops in a pair of the biggest engines, you’ll get an insane 885 horsepower. This may be a simple arithmetic, but it will have a lot of power. There is room in the truck for bigger and more powerful engines as well, which could mean a revolution in the future for the TRX.
What is the STLA framework?
STLA is the Stellantis electric vehicle platform. Like other manufacturers’ EV rigs, it’s a skateboard-like structure with batteries in the middle. Stellantis will use the platform for everything from EV sports cars to SUVs.
However, the Ram Revolution is built on the largest and toughest version of the platform, which has a frame around the battery packs. This means that they are well suited for the rugged truck or delivery truck life. Unlike other EVs, but just like conventional trucks, the Ram Revolution is a true body-on-frame design, which means it can potentially tow a lot, too.
What is the new Ram 1500 Revolution truck?
Ram Revolution isn’t just a marketing campaign, it’s the name of the all-new electric Ram truck. He. She It should compete with the Ford F-150 Lightning, the upcoming Chevy Silverado EV, and of course the Tesla Cybertruck and Rivian R1T. However, it looks like it could be bigger and more powerful than any of those trucks. The Ram Revolution is expected to arrive in 2024, but the order books for the new truck haven’t been opened yet.

The concept truck debuted this week at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. While the suicide doors and giant wheels are cool, we don’t expect it to make it to production. Still, we’re expecting the cool middle door and bed extender, as well as the funky “third row” of jump seats to reach production. Overall, the truck should do all the things the gas-powered Ram 1500 does, simply with electricity.
