HEMI V8 to be Joined or Replaced by the Hurricane in Facelifted 2025 Ram 1500

Ram’s turbocharged 6-cylinder engine will be the most powerful non-performance edition of its type among full-size trucks

  • The boosted straight-six makes more power and torque than the 5.7L V8.

  • The Hurricane 6-cylinder engine should arrive in late 2024.

Downsizing is something we know little about in North America. Our vehicles keep growing in size, but emission regulations are having an impact on engine displacement. V8 engines are great however they’ve got a bad rep, and with reason. This is why they’re slowly being phased out and it’s going to happen to the Ram 1500 in the future. At least, this is our take on the news.

The 2025 Ram 1500 REV – A Revolutionary Electric Truck

This is essentially what’s being reported by Carscoops, and it makes sense. If anything, the high-output Hurricane twin-turbocharged 3.0L inline-six produces far more power than the 5.7L HEMI V8 currently offered. This is in reality and, on paper at least, it should be more fuel-efficient.

The details related to this discovery involved an online document that elaborated on a 2025 Ram 1500 Tungsten Crew Cab 4×4. The report indicates that the link to the document, which included a VIN, was live until a few days ago. It’s here that the return of the Tungsten trim and the coming of the Hurricane were inferred.

Also part of the leaked information was the availability of a “front passenger interactive display,” something that exists in the Grand Wagoneer. In higher-spec models, the display will be joined by larger infotainment screens as already showcased in the new all-electric Ram REV.

As a 2025 MY truck, we’ll see more potentially later this year with a full reveal in 2024.
