University Dodge Ram 1500 Overview

Ram revamped its 1500 pickup for the 2025 model year, introducing a refreshed design, new powertrains, and two additional trims. Among these trims is the RHO, positioned as a performance-oriented pickup catering to a unique segment of Ram customers. Although not as powerful as the concluding TRX, the RHO promises comparable capability. While detailed specifications are pending and will be disclosed closer to the model’s launch, here’s everything currently known about the 2025 Ram 1500 RHO.

2025 Ram 1500 RHO

For the 2025 model year, Ram introduces the all-new Ram 1500 RHO, positioned as an off-road-oriented pickup that takes its place above the Rebel in the brand’s updated lineup of dynamic trucks. Unlike serving as a direct replacement for the TRX, the RHO is tailored to cater to a different customer segment. While it may feature less horsepower than the TRX, this adjustment aims to offer a more affordable starting price, expanding its appeal to a broader audience.

Beneath the Hood

The RHO will depart from the V8 Hemi tradition, opting for Ram’s latest powertrain innovation – a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six Hurricane engine, borrowed from Jeep. This robust engine is projected to deliver an impressive 540 horsepower with 28 psi of boost. While specific torque figures and acceleration details to reach 60 miles per hour remain undisclosed, estimations suggest a performance in the vicinity of 5.0 seconds. Further details on these specifications are expected to be revealed at a later date.

Off-Road Prowess

Ram plans to position the RHO as the flagship model in its truck lineup, indicating a focus on formidable off-road capabilities. While detailed rugged specifications are currently unavailable, there is speculation that the RHO could match the off-road prowess of the TRX, albeit with a slightly reduced power output.


Ram has not disclosed the pricing details for the upcoming 2025 RHO. Positioned above the Rebel, which starts at $61,295 in the 2024 lineup, and considering the TRX’s substantial price tag of nearly $100,000, the RHO is anticipated to fall somewhere in between. A pricing range in the mid- to high-$80,000s would align with expectations for this performance-oriented pickup.

When to Expect the RHO

The RHO is set to join the lineup in the third quarter of 2024. Ram plans to release additional details about the truck, including its pricing, closer to the official launch date.

2025 Ram 1500

Blending capability and comfort, the Ram 1500 receives significant upgrades for 2025 to maintain its dominance in the full-size pickup segment. Offering a range of six-cylinder engines, including a potent twin-turbo inline-six with up to 540 horsepower, the lineup has evolved with the replacement of the traditional Hemi V-8. The Rebel model emphasizes off-road capability, but the Ram 1500 shines when tailored for luxury, especially in high-end trims like the Limited and the new Tungsten. These top-tier configurations aim to emulate class-above vehicles while retaining the workhorse prowess inherent in the Ram brand.
