Ram has previewed the upcoming production model of the 1500 Revolution with a concept vehicle that was revealed at the Consumer Electronics Show 2023 in Las Vegas. The concept truck features a futuristic design that departs from previous Ram models while still maintaining recognizable elements.
The front fascia has large daytime running lights that are divided into upper and lower parts, a prominent illuminated 3D Ram badge, and a rugged appearance. The front of the truck appears to be shorter than the current ICE Ram 1500, a design change that increases the size of the passenger compartment for improved spaciousness.
The 1500 Revolution BEV concept has a sleek appearance from the side, with a dramatically slanted A-pillar and a contrasting black roof that give the truck a lower, more streamlined look compared to other trucks. It even appears sportier than the Rivian R1T, although it remains to be seen if it will have similar driving performance on the road.
Inside, the truck features a unique design with no traditional digital gauge cluster for the driver and a pair of stacked 14-inch landscape screens in the center of the dash. The lower screen can be set to three different positions and can even be detached to allow for various truck functions to be operated from outside the vehicle. Instead of traditional side mirrors, the truck is equipped with cameras, as well as an advanced 360-degree camera system and a smart backup camera. The driver will also have access to key information through an augmented reality head-up display projected onto the windscreen.
There is currently no information available on the range or battery capacity of the 1500 Revolution BEV Concept. However, it is known that the vehicle is equipped with an 800-volt architecture that allows for charging speeds of up to 350 kW, which is enough to add 100 miles of range in 10 minutes.
Ram has also demonstrated an “inductive robot charger” called the Ram Charger, which is intended for home use. According to unconfirmed reports, the production version of the truck will offer two battery pack sizes: 159 kWh and 200 kWh. The larger pack is expected to have a range of around 400-500 miles, and Ram may also offer a range-extender feature that is not currently available on any of its competitors’ vehicles.
