Here we present a concept car that looks very close to the production model. At CES in Las Vegas, Ram just unveiled concept car of the future electric pickup truckwith a fairly spectacular set, but conventional enough to say that in 90% it is undoubtedly the standard model.
In general, the Ram Revolution Concept, that is the full name, adopts the aesthetic codes of the manufacturer while modernizing them. On the front panel, there are large daytime running lights that define the upper and lower parts of the optics, a large 3D Ram badge that illuminates, and plastic elements that emphasize its sturdiness.
In profile, this pickup truck will almost have a sporty edge, especially with the A-pillar that is tilted back quite spectacularly. The black roof gives the vehicle a lower, thicker profile compared to other pickups. Even the Rivian R1T looks wiser next door.
The most technologically advanced of electric pickups?
Inside, it’s pretty bold overall, with no screen under the driver’s eyes. Everything is concentrated on two 14-inch landscape-format touchscreens in the center of the dashboard. The lower screen can be adjusted to three different positions and can even be removed so that the driver can use it as a tablet outside and control various functions of the pickup.
As for driving information, Ram says there’s an augmented reality head-up display projected onto the windshield. The car is also equipped with cameras and a 360-degree camera system instead of traditional rear-view mirrors.
In terms of technology, Ram advertises Level 3 autonomous driving capability without further ado. The concept is also equipped with external projectors “An effective tool to visually convey information to the user”also with a function called ” Shadow mode allows the vehicle to follow a pedestrian in front. Not very reassuring, but practical for certain professions or certain activities.
Big battery, big autonomy and big power?

According to the first rumors so far, the 100% electric Ram will have two batteries of different capacities: 159 and 200 kWh. Bigger battery life should change Between 640 and 800 km According to the American EPA certification cycle. Ram is also expected to offer a range extender, a feature that none of its competitors currently have.
The Ram Revolution Concept is based on Stellantis’ STLA Frame architecture and is powered by two electric motors with four-wheel drive. There, too, power was not expressed, but various rumors announce up to 885 hp.
It remains to be seen whether this model will cross the Atlantic in the production version. Since its two main competitors are the Tesla Cybertruck and the Ford F-150 Lightning, the Silverado EV could also land on the Old Continent. those who love“The American Way of Life” should be happy.
