Default New SRT Ram on the Way?

Check out BadStratRT's homepage article about the possibility of a Ram 1500 SRT! I'll ask you the same question he asked Ralph Gilles: Do you see a business case and demand for an SRT variant of the Ram 1500?

I would love to see a new variant of the RAM SRT, whether it be 10 cyclinder or a SC'd 6.4L. I am current owner of a 2005 QC. That transmission should never have been put it that vehicle. If my truck were not an SRT I would have gotten rid of it long ago. I have had nothing but problems with it. All related to driveline and transmission.

The sad thing is that I love the truck but just wish it had been put together the right way and just seemingly thrown together.

i would love to see a new srt ram! in fact i would probably buy two! (im completely serious) I would assume it would come with the 6.4 hemi since it makes pretty damn near what the viper engine made for the srt10 ram back in the day. as far as the auto transmission goes, maybe they could incorporate the new "8 speed auto" thats supposed to come out for the charger late this year. who knows?! but what ever the boys down in the lab at srt and mopar decide to do, i know it will be great.

They would make more money per SRT truck than a SRT Neon type car, but they'll probbaly sell more SRT-4's than SRT Rams.

Anyone ever run their SRT-10 pick-up on a road course? How did it do?

My son's SRT-4 (Neon) did quite well at Summit Point.

Well, my big beef is this, so often companies will produce a "high performance" vehicle and then only offer an automatic behind it.

IF, and only if they make a manual variant with a 6.4, would I consider it.

Honestly they have all the parts, use the 6 speed out of the cummins, it can handle it. I would love to see a 4 wheel version too, but I doubt that happening. I honestly kinda doubt the 6 speed happening.

I would drop cash now to get a New Ram with a 6.4 hemi, 6 Speed manual, and a manual shift transfer case. I would be all over that like white on rice. My only beef then would be to make sure those ram boxes can be removed ewwww.

I would love to see an all wheel drive 6.4 SRT 8 Ram like the Jeep. That thing would launch pretty nice!

My 2005 was the most fun vehicle I've own. Make it with cylinder shut down like on the hemi and I'll order it tomorrow.

I vote for the return of the Viper truck, 10 cylinders and all. My 4.7L truck will be paid off soon, and I really like the RAM SRT-10. Please don't stick a dogamatic tranny in it; six speed manual all the way, whether single or quad cab. How about some SRT exclusive Centerline wheels (they are forged and light), Katskin seat covers (maybe), a dyno-tuned exhaust, a driver's side dual AeroForce Interceptor A-pillar, and the same aerodynamics reduction focus the last SRT got? RAM brand, are you listening??

I would love to see a new RAM SRT variant. I say forget the V10 stick with the 6.4 Hemi with MDS and all the nice technology. Make it closer to a normal truck with just enough styling cues to make it look better, skip all the body cladding that was ridiculously expensive to make it a cost effective setup. Manual is a must option but automatic is also a must, it's a truck and will be used as a truck so having an automatic to pull things is a must and if you've ever tried to pull your ski boat out of the water with a sport truck and manual it can be an ugly seen when the tires slip. In the end it doesn't need to be exotic just really a really nice well rounded sport truck.

Yes to another round of SRT's with the Viper. A hi-performance tranny is a must. i still have my 04 hemi with modifications and probably will not sell for a long time. PLEASE DO THIS SOON!!

YES!!



The G-56 is nowhere near a performance transmission; it doesn't shift fast enough for a true performance application and would be an aweful choice in an SRT pickup

I know I'm a few months late on this, and I'm all for a new Dodge performance truck. However, I think one of the main attractions of the previous SRT-10 was that IT HAD A FRIGGIN VIPER V-10 ENGINE IN IT. I know just that fact, alone, sold many of those trucks to buyers who weren't interested in all the hard numbers and data. They were just happy to point and say, "My truck's got a Viper engine under the hood!". I don't know if a truck with anything less than a V-10 would produce the same novel effect as when the Ram SRT-10 was introduced. I know that the performance would equal or exceed that of the Viper plant in pretty much every category, but it still doesn't have that "mine is bigger than yours" effect as a V-10 badge carries.

If re-introduced with the big Hemi in it, I'd like to see the truck be visibly different than the old model. I like the idea of a real no-frills truck. Maybe some badging, a nice hood, and some meat on the model-exclusive wheels. I don't think it really needs all the body parts the previous one had.

Just my useless opinion.

well if they do make and str ram for the 4th gen and do put the 6.4 in it, they could use the 6 speed out of the challenger and didnt the viper have a 6speed manual in it either or. just a thought.

I had an '06 RC SRT-10. The tranny in it sucked, 2-3rd did a few money shifts and towing anything was not recommended. Payload capacity was 600 lbs. Too limited of a market for another truck that can't really be used as a truck.

If they produce another with a 392 in it make the truck so it can be used to tow and haul a load larger than 600 lbs.

they need to do it like they used to do with the old Dakota R/T. nothing spectacular to the body, with a tad stiffer sway bars, the 6.4 and the challenger srt 6speed. and nice interior, but not too much that makes the truck too much heavier. and maybe just a tad lower stance, or at least level the suspension in the rear. that would be an intense looking truck!
