A fan recently clued us in to a build sheet he found on the Dodge.com website (which has since been removed), and it was for a 2025 Ram 1500 – with the I-6 twin-turbo Hurricane engine we see on the Jeep Wagoneer.
This sheet divulges a lot of potential information about the 2025 – and presumably next-generation – Ram 1500, but we still don’t know if it’s for real or not.
When we reached out to Todd Goyer with Ram Truck communications, he simply and abruptly said: “Nothing to share at this time.”
So, we still don’t know if this build sheet is fact or fiction, but let’s pretend we got a glimpse into the future. What does this tell us about the 2025 Ram 1500?
We’ve speculated for a while that the new Stellantis Hurricane engine will end up in the Ram 1500. We thought it would be sooner than the 2025 model year, but here we are midway through 2023, and we haven’t seen any Ram Truck model updates for 2024. So, we’re making the assumption that the next-gen Ram 1500 will be the 2025 model.
It stands to reason, then, that we won’t see the Hurricane engine making its way to Ram until that time. In case you aren’t familiar, this engine in the Wagoneer delivers 420 horsepower and 468 pound-feet of torque – which makes it the top-tier engine for that vehicle. The 5.7-liter V-8 is currently the top engine for the 1500 (not including the TRX), and it delivers 395 horsepower and 410 pound-feet of torque.
So, the question that pops up: With the Hurricane in the 2025 Ram 1500, will the V-8 remain? Recent spy shots depicting a dual exhaust point to that answer being yes. So, will the Hurricane replace the Pentastar V-6? Or is the dual exhaust a red herring? TBD.
With the introduction of the Ram Rev 1500 electric truck, we see a new top-tier trim called “Tungsten,” which Ram says “raises the no-compromise benchmark again for upscale pickup trucks.”
What does that mean? According to the Rev 1500 press release, this trim will see heated-and-ventilated front seats, quilted leather, 24-way power adjustable front seats with massagers, Tungsten badging, dual wireless phone chargers and an ultra-premium Klipsch Reference Premiere audio system. Digging into the build sheet, it looks like the 2025 Ram 1500 Tungsten will also get heated-and-ventilated rear seats as well as exterior front and rear lighting animations.
Though the Ram Rev is slotted to get a 14.5-inch infotainment screen, which is an increase over the current 12-inch screen, the build sheet for the 2025 Ram 1500 Tungsten trim clearly states it will get a 15-inch touchscreen display.
We’ll also still see the 12-inch digital gauge cluster. But what’s new, and what was alluded to in the spy shots we referenced earlier: There will be an available interactive front passenger display – a la Grand Wagoneer and Grand Cherokee.
This one remains near and dear to my petite heart. According to the build sheet, adjustable pedals will still be available in 2025, and that makes it one of two full-size trucks that will still have them. Other than Ford Motor Co, all other truck makers – including General Motors – have dropped this feature, and we think that’s a shame.
For the record: Tall drivers like adjustable pedals as well – especially if they have short arms.
We hope this build sheet is real, and since Stellantis has already removed the page from its website, we’re including a link to the full 12-page PDF here. You’re welcome.
We’d love for you to dig into it and tell us what you see that we didn’t. Are there any surprises? Misses? Comment below.
The vin is real as it shows up on https://www.mopar.com/en-us/my-vehicle/vin-lookup.html as a 2025 Tungsten with the hurricane engine.
