The 2025 Ram 1500 Has Everything You Need and More

May 31st, 2024 by

A silver 2025 Ram 1500 is driving on a city highway after leaving a Ram dealer near Somerset.

We like a hard-working truck as much as the next guy—honestly, probably more than the next guy—which is why we get excited about Ram trucks year after year. For the 2025 model year, the Ram 1500 that you’ll find at Dan Cummins Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram of Paris, your premier Ram dealer near Somerset, is better than ever, with comprehensive updates and enhancements inside and out. Not only has Ram improved the styling of their top truck for this new model year, along with major tech upgrades inside, but the 2025 model also debuts the new Hurricane engine for the Ram 1500, and we couldn’t be more excited. Ram trucks have always been known for their incredible power and capability, often in connection with their legendary HEMI V8 engines, now they’re better than ever.

Perhaps most remarkable, however, is that these upgrades push the Ram 1500 to the next level and can surpass the Ford F-150 in numerous ways. Yeah, we know that it’s not always necessary to compare yourself to someone else, but the F-150 has been such a popular truck for so long that it’s hard not to. Plus, with these updates to the Ram 1500—like the powerful new engine and incredible tech features inside—it’s clear that Ram is looking to take the top spot. When you see how it stacks up next to Ford’s pickup, it’s pretty clear that Ram is ready to take over and become America’s favorite truck.

It’s Hurricane Season for the Truck Market

Ram has been a leader in the industry for decades with its powerful engines, which ensure their trucks feel great to drive around Somerset and have plenty of power to tackle what you need. In recent years, their engineers have developed different ways to deliver more power and enhanced performance. We’ve seen this most recently with the eTorque mild hybrid system they’ve developed to boost power by using an electric motor to take some of the strain off the engine so it can focus on performance.

Now, with the 2025 model year for the Ram 1500, we’re seeing the next step in this evolution of power and performance. For some people, it’s going to be hard to say goodbye to the incredible HEMI V8 engines we’ve known and loved for so long, but it’s time for something new and different. That’s where the innovative new 3.0L Hurricane engine comes into play, delivering an incredible driving experience that you need to feel to fully appreciate. The standard engine remains a 3.6L V6 with the eTorque system that offers an impressive 305 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque, but the new Hurricane engine provides 420 hp and 469 lb-ft of torque—that’s from a 3.0L engine! There’s even a high-output version available with truly insane performance, but we’ll look at that more in a bit with the Ram 1500 RHO model.

By comparison, the Ford F-150 has a whole bunch of engines that can make choosing the right one feel like you’re doing your taxes as you try to keep track of different numbers and specs. There’s a standard 2.7L V6 that’s decent, but upgrades include a 5.0L V8, a 3.5L V6, a high-output version of that V6, then a hybrid version, and…well, you can see what we mean. Honestly, it’s just too many options. Ram keeps things much simpler with a streamlined selection that still offers incredible power and a great driving experience.

Good Looks and Functionality for Somerset Driving

Ram trucks have always looked fantastic, but year after year their designers and artists manage to make them even more stylish and bold looking. Although not fully redesigned for a new generation, the 2025 Ram 1500 clearly has a new style that is absolutely stunning, making an immediate impression from the moment you first look at it. This includes a redesigned full front fascia that is quite striking, along with trim-specific grille surrounds that make each model pop when seen together.

One of our favorite things about this update is the new lighting package they’ve put together for the Ram 1500. This includes available LED walk-up animations with a Ram logo and an exterior “lighting carpet” that illuminates the ground as you approach your truck. An available powered tailgate can be opened and closed with the push of a button on the key fob, and there’s a class-exclusive RamBox Cargo Management System available. This gives you secured exterior storage above the rear wheel well that is lit and has a 115-volt AC outlet on the driver-side box; you won’t find this on the Ford F-150.

Interior Comfort and Tech Features Taken to a New Level

Speaking of the F-150, there’s no denying that it’s a comfortable and technologically advanced truck—it has a 12-inch infotainment display these days and plenty of other impressive features. Looking at its pinnacle Platinum trim, Ford has loaded it full of features like a 12-inch Digital Productivity Screen, an available B&O sound system, and leather seating. That’s pretty impressive until you check out the all-new Tungsten model for the 2025 Ram 1500, which sets a new standard for luxury and innovation in full-size trucks.

Not only does the Tungsten have massive 22-inch wheels, but inside you’ll find premium leather seating, real wood and carbon fiber accents, and 24-way power adjustable front seats with heating, ventilation, and massage functionality. The 2025 Ram 1500 also has an available 14.5-inch Uconnect infotainment display, an available class-exclusive 10.25-inch front-passenger touchscreen display, and 12-inch Driver Information Digital Cluster Display. Plus you can top it off with a best-in-class 23-speaker Klipsch Reference Premiere audio system with a 12-inch subwoofer for unbelievable sound quality.

The Ram 1500 RHO Can Go Anywhere You Imagine

The new Ram 1500 isn’t just about exquisite luxury and remarkable technology; it can also handle anything you throw at it. Building on the legacy of powerful models like the Ram TRX, the all-new Ram 1500 RHO is the latest addition to Ram’s incredible selection of off-road trucks over the years. Not only does this model have incredible interior features like 50 inches of combined available screens inside and dual wireless charging pads, but it’s also built to tackle anything you encounter once you leave Somerset behind and head off-road.

This RHO model comes with a 3.0L Hurricane High Output Straight-Six Turbo engine that delivers 540 hp and 521 lb-ft of torque, making it the most high-performance option for the new Ram 1500. This incredible engine lets it go from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.6 seconds, get up to 100 mph in 11.7 seconds, and run the quarter-mile in 13.1 seconds. With a unique long-travel suspension featuring high-strength forged control arms, this truck is an amazing off-road beast that starts at $69,995 MSRP.[a] That’s almost $10k less than the starting price for the current F-150 Raptor, which is Ford’s off-road monster.

Are You Ready for the New Ram 1500?

For more than 40 years, the Ram 1500 has been one of our favorite trucks on the road and repeatedly set new standards for power, technology, and surprising luxury from a full-size truck. With these updates for the 2025 model year, Ram is once again taking things to the next level and delivering a truck that is perfect for driving around Somerset, getting work done throughout the week, and enjoying yourself on the weekend. Ram continues to prove that the best can somehow keep getting better, and we love seeing the new things they do year after year. While there’s no denying that the Ford F-150 is a fine truck, it’s clear that Ram is ready to push things further and elevate the experience you have in your pickup; we expect nothing less.
