Ram is rolling out the big guns once again with the debut of its latest off-road warrior, the 2025 Ram 1500 RHO. Bid farewell to the iconic HEMI® V8s, because this powerhouse is ushering in a new era of performance and capability. Meet the RHO, a beastly machine engineered to dominate the trails with its innovative powertrain and rugged design.

At the heart of the RHO lies a revolutionary powertrain featuring the high-output version of Stellantis’s HURRICANE engine paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission. Pumping out an impressive 540 horsepower and 521 lb.-ft. of torque, this turbocharged 3.0-liter HURRICANE I6 engine is a force to be reckoned with. While it may not match the sheer brute force of its predecessor, the TRX, it more than holds its own against competitors like the Ford F-150 Raptor.

But numbers only tell part of the story. The RHO’s performance on the road (and off it) speaks volumes. With a blistering 0-60 mph time of just 4.6 seconds and a quarter-mile pass in 13.1 seconds at 105 mph, this truck is all about delivering thrills at every turn. And with a top speed of 118 mph, its prowess on the open road is not denied.

When it comes to off-road capabilities, the RHO doesn’t disappoint. Equipped with Bilstein’s Black Hawk e2 adaptive performance shocks, retuned for optimal performance, and riding two inches higher than its counterparts, this truck is ready to tackle even the toughest terrain. Plus, durability and agility are never questioned with a BorgWarner 48-13 full-time active transfer case and a Dana 60 rear axle with upgraded internals.

But it’s not just about brawn—the RHO boasts brains too. Inside the cabin, you’ll find a luxurious interior with creature comforts like 12-way power leather front seats with heating, ventilation, and massaging functions. Aluminum paddle shifters give drivers full control of the potent powertrain, while a state-of-the-art infotainment system with a 14.5-inch display keeps everyone entertained on the journey.

Regarding hauling and towing, the RHO is more than capable. With a towing capacity of up to 8,380 pounds and a payload capacity of 1,520 pounds, this truck has no job too big. And with 11.8 inches of ground clearance and the ability to ford 32 inches of water, no obstacle is too daunting.

So, if you’re ready to take your off-road adventures to the next level, the 2025 Ram 1500 RHO is waiting to lead the way.
