The vast majority of the pickups and SUVs that we feature on DodgeForum’s Truckin Fast Wednesday are a bit quicker than the 2005 Dodge Ram Quad Cab in the video shown below but running low 13s in a truck of this size is still mighty impressive – and I can’t get enough of watching a 5,000lb truck outrun a Camaro SS.
On paper, it is hard to imagine such a mild looking 2005 Dodge Ram Quad Cab beating up on a 4th generation Chevrolet Camaro SS but as soon as this Ram begins cleaning the tires off in the burnout box, it is clear that this is no average 4-door Ram. The Hemi V8 roars as smoke billows off of the tires and when the green lights drop, this Ram instantly hops out to an early lead on the Camaro. Even though the Camaro gets a small starting line advantage with a slightly better reaction time, the Ram is ahead before the two get to the 60 foot box and the Dodge never looks back. In the end, the Ram runs a 13.331 at 102.64 miles per hour while the (likely near stock) Camaro runs a 13.599 at 102.02.
This 2005 Dodge Ram Quad Cab packing an obviously modified 5.7L Hemi sounds every bit as awesome as it runs so make sure to have your speakers cranked up when you watch this big Ram hold off the 4th generation Chevrolet Camaro SS!
