We won’t see the Ram Revolution concept at a conventional truck show, but at a tech expo.
Both Ford and General Motors have been pushing its electric trucks both on the market and in the pipeline, but Ram’s electric offering has been more of a slow burn. We should see a production version by 2024, but the design study reveal will make its way to the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas this upcoming January. Before the concept debuts, though, the company put out a teaser briefly shows off the truck’s aerodynamic design.
It’s been clear for awhile, obviously, that the electric Ram pickup will be a seismic departure from the brand’s current offerings. I’ve been curious whether the Revolution’s design will lean more toward the Chevy Silverado EV (that looks markedly different than the current gas-powered trucks), or whether it will bring a fairly conventional look, like the Ford F-150 Lightning. We’ll have to wait and see on that one, since the automaker’s just teasing some angles for the moment.
As with the truck itself, Ram has been sparse with technical details for their upcoming electric truck. If we see what the company promised last year, then we’ll have a truck with about 500 miles of driving range, DC fast-charging capability and automated, or at least semi-autonomous, driver assistance features to compete with its cross-town rivals.
When the Ram Revolution does land in production form, buyers should be more flush with choice should they want to actually jump into a fully electric truck. Not only will they have the Ford F-150 Lightning, Rivian R1T or GMC Hummer EV, but we’ll also have the Chevrolet Silverado EV and the first examples of the GMC Sierra EV.
