The Ram 1500 REV has a little bit of an odd title. “REV” is an acronym for RAM Electrical Car, which makes sufficient sense, however within the automotive world, the phrase “rev” has different meanings which are wholly inapplicable to the EV, given the very fact it could possibly’t really “rev” its motor. Misnomer nomenclature apart, the REV is Stellantis’ first actual EV providing to america and it is a huge one. First, the battery is big at 229-kilowatt hours for the extended-range mannequin. That interprets to upwards of 500 miles of vary — and 14,000 kilos of towing capability is not too shabby both.
The highest-of-the-line “Tungsten” trim turns the REV right into a luxo-barge that may haul the contents of a ironmongery store, with leather-based in every single place, and a 23-speaker sound system. The precise worth has not been revealed but, however given the truth that the best trim F-150 Lightning Platinum begins at $98,074 and the Chevy Silverado EV RST begins at $105,000, the REV Tungsten will not be low-cost. Excessive worth or not, the REV is a extra compelling car than the R1T. It is from an automaker that ostensibly is aware of how vehicles work and 500 potential miles of vary beats Rivian’s most vary of 400 miles.
