2025 Ram 1500 Review

The 2025 Ram 1500 is one of the most enticing pickups on sale today. While it might not have an optional V-8 engine moving forward, both variants of the new Hurricane inline-six engine are more potent, efficient, and refined than the outgoing Hemi. Combine Ram’s excellent interior setup with the truck’s on-road manners and you’ll be hard-pressed to find a more well-rounded and luxurious feeling pickup.


  • Powerful inline-six engine options

  • Class-leading interiors

  • Great ride quality for a half-ton


  • Lacking a V-8 option

  • Drop in towing capacity compared to 24MY
