Ram not planning to offer a Hellcat-powered pickup truck, at least for now

Article by Christian Andrei, on November 1, 2014

If you were expecting a Hellcat-powered Ram 1500 you’d better forget that idea as it will not happen, at least at this time. These words came from Ram Trucks’ CEO Bob Hegbloom, but this doesn’t mean that the company couldn’t surprise us in the future. If built, the Ram 1500 Hellcat will be the successor to the Dodge Ram SRT-10, a pickup truck powered by the Viper’s V10 engine.

The Dodge Ram SRT-10 still holds the title of the fastest pickup truck in the world. For those who don’t know, Chrysler’s new 6.2-liter HEMI Hellcat V8 engine is able to deliver a staggering 707 hp and 881 Nm (650 lb-ft) of torque.

Bolted to a TorqueFlite 8HP90 8-speed transmission, this engine is capable to push the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat to a top speed of 204 mph (328 km/h).

Dodge offers the Charger SRT Hellcat for $63,995, including the $1,700 gas guzzler tax but excluding the $995 destination charge. Meanwhile, the other Hellcat-powered model, the Challenger SRT Hellcat costs $59,995.
