While the 3rd gen Dodge Ram 2500 powered by the Cummins Turbo Diesel spews enough soot to be considered for our Black Fridays feature slot – the quarter mile time turned in by this mild looking Ram HD combined with the severe beating handed to the early 4th generation Chevrolet Camaro SS is just too good to pass up for this week’s Truckin Fast Wednesday.
We don’t know anything about the 3rd gen Dodge Ram 2500 in action in the video below but it is very clear that this big Ram has been heavily modified. Our first clue is the soot that bursts from the single exhaust stack when the truck launches and our second – and most poignant – clue is the landslide beating handed to the Chevy Camaro in the near lane. The solid reaction time plays a big part in this Ram pummeling the Camaro but the 12.18 quarter mile time with a trap speed of 111.23 miles per hour to the Chevy’s run of 14.86 at 97 miles per hour is just as much of a factor. Also, with a truck of this size in what appears to be fairly plain street trim sniffing the 11 second quarter mile barrier – there is no question that this is one truckin’ fast Dodge Ram.
