The Dodge RAM, known plainly as the RAM in the US and Canada, started production back in 1981. It comes in six different trims - ST, SXT, SLT, TRX, Sport Laramie, and Power Wagon - and four different cab options - Crew Cab (new for 2010), Mega Cab, Quad Cab, and Regular Cab. The RAM is powered by a plethora of engine options, including a 3.7L V6 producing 215 HP and 235 lb-ft of torque, a 4.7L V8 delivering 310 HP and 330 lb-ft of torque, a 5.7L V8 with 355/390 HP and 395/404 lb-ft of torque, and a 6.7L turbodiesel I-6 getting 350 HP and 610/650 lb-ft of torque. These engines are mated to either a 6-speed manual or a choice of three different automatics: 4-, 5-, or 6-speed.
There are no doubts, no second guesses and no recounts needed, the ultimate performance pickup is here; and it’s a Dodge. It ain’t bragging if you can do it. With a maximum speed of 150 mph and the biggest engine in a performance pickup, the Dodge Ram SRT-10 backs up its claim as the baddest truck on the block.
Building on its storied legacy of power and performance, Dodge is bringing the historic Daytona nameplate to the Dodge Ram line of pickup trucks. The limited-edition 2005 Dodge Ram Daytona, with legendary HEMI power and bold Daytona-inspired styling, draws further attention to the Ram 1500’s leadership claim as the most powerful light-duty pickup truck on the market.
