State-of-the-art Hurricane engine family delivers big-engine power with more performance, improved fuel efficiency and reduced emissions
The 2025 Ram 1500 offers the all-new 3.0-liter Hurricane Standard Output and High Output engines. These new engines, members of the Stellantis Hurricane Twin-turbo family and the most powerful six cylinders in the segment, deliver enhanced fuel economy and fewer emissions while generating more horsepower and torque than other naturally aspirated V-8 and boosted six-cylinder engines in the light-duty segment.  

The all-new 3.0-liter Hurricane engines join the 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 in the Ram 1500 lineup. All three engine options offered with the 2025 Ram 1500 are paired with a TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission that optimizes smooth shift changes for fuel economy, performance and drivability.

The foundation of the Hurricane engine is a deep-skirt cast-aluminum block with a structural aluminum alloy oil pan. The strongest Ram engine ever uses cross-bolted steel main bearing caps to contain the strong rotating assembly of a forged steel crankshaft and forged steel connecting rods. During manufacturing the block is deck-plate honed to optimize the cylinder bore shape, which helps improve fuel efficiency.

Stellantis propulsion system engineers employed state-of-the-art technologies to deliver reduced emissions and attain big-engine power, including:

  • Two low-inertia, high-flow turbochargers, optimized for each engine, feed three cylinders for rapid response to throttle inputs
  • Plasma transfer wire arc (spray bore) coating in the cylinder bores for an ultra-thin, low-friction wear surface
  • High-pressure (5,075 psi/350 bar) direct fuel injection
  • Engine-mounted water-to-air charge cooler with a dedicated cooling circuit

The 3.0-liter Hurricane engines are produced at Stellantis' Saltillo Engine Plant in Mexico.

New rear axle offers increased performance, durability and efficiency
The 2025 Ram 1500 features a new high-torque rear axle to further enhance ride quality for trucks equipped with the 3.0-liter Hurricane H/O engine. Available in 2WD or 4WD, a traditional open or limited-slip differential automatically divides torque among the rear wheels to maximize traction available at each wheel. An available electronic locking rear differential gives the driver the ability to lock or unlock the differential on demand, providing enhanced traction to the vehicle when needed.

Ram 1500 offers a 3.21, 3.55 or 3.92 axle ratio, allowing customers to optimize fuel economy and vehicle capability.

Drivers will enjoy class-leading ride and handling via a double wishbone front suspension and five-link solid rear axle with available, segment-exclusive, active-level, four-corner air suspension. The adjustable air suspension enables up to five different modes: entry/exit, aero, normal, off-road 1 and off-road 2.

Contemporary design aesthetic telegraphs bold, heroic presence
The new 2025 Ram 1500 is reimagined with a modern, contemporary exterior design that telegraphs the bold, heroic presence Ram is known for. The latest iteration of Ram's light-duty truck is instantly recognizable while incorporating a sleeker, more aerodynamic appearance. New premium LED headlamps, including twin bi-functional projector headlamps, are standard on Limited and up. A new, larger, forward-leaning grille signifies a heroic presence while taking boldness to another level. The iconic Ram grille caters to a wide variety of buyers and is available in eight unique interpretations as dictated by the particular model. A new, prominent R-A-M badge has been lifted to increase the presence and make a proud statement.

A drawn body-side character line stretches from front to rear, tying together the front fender, cab doors and bed fenders for a consistent horizontal profile. The bed and cab are sub-flush to reduce aerodynamic disturbances. All-new taillamps with a jeweled appearance across the lineup, including LEDs with Blind-spot Monitoring, available on select models.

New for 2025, the Ram 1500 offers a power open/close tailgate with obstacle detection. When equipped, the key fob now includes a button to lower the tailgate. A multi-function tailgate continues to be available and adds even greater utility to the segment's cargo-management and storage leader. The best lockable bed storage in the segment continues to be available with RamBox, featuring a 115-volt outlet. The class-exclusive RamBox cargo management system includes versatile, weatherproof, lockable, illuminated and drainable storage bins built into the bed rails.

Ram 1500 is available with Active Driving Assist for hands-on-wheel and eyes-on-road automated driving using lane centering with adaptive cruise control. The system uses multiple sensors, including radars and cameras to dictate appropriate roads for the technology.

Hands-free Driving Assist is the company's name for Level 2+ (L2+) automated driving capability and offers hands-off driving at all speeds and lane centering on approved roadways, for even greater driving convenience. The system will predictively slow the vehicle down in tight curves, automatically resume control after driver override and verify that the driver is paying attention to the road.

An on-board power inverter, when equipped with the new 3.0-liter Hurricane engine, offers up to 1.8 kilowatts with two covered outlets located inside the bed. With the Ram 1500's 3.0-liter Hurricane engine running, while the truck is in park, customers can turn the inverter on via the touchscreen and with a switch located to the left of the outlets. The engine will then ramp up revolutions per minute (rpm) to support the on-board power inverter. Ram 1500 models equipped with the 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 eTorque engine can run the inverter while the truck is in motion.

An available fully digital rearview mirror with tow mode provides an unobstructed rear view that enhances safety and visibility. The digital rearview mirror displays video in real time from a rear-facing camera, offering an image that is unobstructed by the D-pillars or rear seats. It also reverts back to a traditional reflective mirror by toggling the switch underneath.

The 2025 Ram 1500 features a class-exclusive 10.25-inch passenger screen. Only visible to the front passenger and with dynamic touchscreen control, it offers three major functions: co-pilot (navigation, device management), entertainment (via HDMI) and the ability to view the exterior vehicle cameras. The front passenger screen features an HDMI plug, which lets occupants connect their phone or tablet, turning the touchscreen into a mirrored extension of their device, allowing internet searches, music and app use to project through the Uconnect 5 system and is the only truck available with this feature.

The 2025 Ram 1500 features a full-color Head Up Display (HUD) that is configurable up to 10 inches and features several different content areas at once, including Lane Departure, Lane Keep Assist, adaptive cruise control, turn-by-turn navigation, current speed, current gear and speed limit.

After enrolling in Ram Connect and downloading the Ram app to a compatible device, owners can create and store digital keys in their smartphone's wallet. They can then access their vehicle without removing the phone from their pocket. Digital keys can be shared with other compatible devices, while the owner retains full control over the access. An NFC-based smart card is provided to users as a backup. This can be used to unlock and start the vehicle in cases where the smartphone is not available. While traditional key fobs remain standard, digital keys give customers more flexibility in terms of how they access their trucks.
