Default 0-60 times in Dodge Ram Hemi?

How fast are the Hemi powered RAM's anyways?

I was reading Motortrends website on Dodge versus Chevy:
"Road Test: 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT Hemi vs. Chevrolet Silverado SS"

Basically is it really that quick, I don't think that a Chevy SS and a Dodge Hemi should be compared but the dodge did post some surprising numbers.


First of all the chevy is made up to be a "fast" chevy witht he SS badging and what not, but i just see the dodge as a regular "no nonsense" truck. I think that it is not within a comparable range ESPECIALLY with the price differences.

here is the link: http://motortrend.com/roadtests/pick...rux/index.html

Yeah, it's that quick. The RC SWB, 2WD is even quicker. Tried to get an SS to run me on the beltline the other day and he wouldn't bite. He must have known.

So what does the QC SWB do? Does anyone know? Im curious now...

I just recently bought the QC SB with the HEMI. Basically what Im saying is no one would even suspect that a truck like ours could HAUL some serious *** stock at least.

I guess its an added bonus to buying the HEMI.

The 0-60 time for a QC 2WD are around 8.3 sec. Quarter times are low 15's to upper 15's. Sorry about the brain misfire above. I thought they tested the QC in that test. One difference in the test truck and mine is the wheels. I've got the 17's which are considerably lighter than the 20's which equates to 2 tenths in the quarter from what I've read.

When I'm sitting at a light most people will ease up along side of me and atfer they see the Hemi logo they just sit there and do nothing. Unless it's some dumb Kid, then I just blow him away. To stop this from happening to often I just put the hemi logo on the tail gate . Now they don't even come up along side of me.

I wonder if the truck in the test had the 3.92 limited slip...

Yeah, I'm having the same problem. I would like to run somebody, but nobody seems to want to when they see the hemi badge.

Mine says Hemi Sport on the rear end, so there's no mistaking the Hemi...

I test drove a Ram Saturday night, regular cab, Hemi, 4X4, off-road group. I know the 4X4 is a little heavier, but I wouldn't think it's as heavy as a 2WD Quad-Cab. To make a long story short, acceleration felt pretty strong, but not fast and not as impressive as I expected from 345HP and 375 lbs-ft of torque. I have to admit, it was a lot faster than the F150 I test drove, but I guess I was expecting too much from a heavy full-size truck.

I still plan on getting it if the dealer comes through, it's just not the beast I was hoping for

now this is funny, seems like people pull up and wanna see the toy move fast.... especially when they see the graphics on the side. I have had it since the 6th of march and did one run off with a silverado, RC, SB, and whooped his ars.. when he came to the next lite he just sat there and looked forward... I smiled, and watched him pull off...his sounded good with dual exhaust, but that was it....
still, all in all, I get lots of looks with this truck....love the Ram..........GUIDO

I ran up on a new SS the other day on the way home. I rode beside him for about a mile and he actually droped below the speed limit to drop back. Maybe he has run a Hemi already.

There's a King Cab Titan in my lot at work that I'm dying to catch. I always park my Ram next to him when he's in the lot. I want to throw on an exhaust or headers or a chip before I line up, though. No need to re-invent the wheel (i.e. the drag tests show Titans are faster than Rams, stock).

I thought the the same thing when I test drove my first Ram, you need at least the 2500 with the Cummins to put a smile on your face. I plan at least going with the K/B blower on mine to make me happy.

Having the Typhoon for 3 years now, everything I test-drive seems slow.

When I kick my Hemi I have to hold on with both hands, that's enough power for me.Only my boat has more Hp. It has a Chevy 454.

*Yawns*

I've seen several of your posts and you seem to want to brag on your typhoony. I've even seen a post where you asked an SRT-10 owner who was selling if they were selling because "it was slow."

I'm not sure if your fishing for a comments on your vehicle or what, but here's one. Go brag about it at a another forum rather than try to start something here.
