Default Dodge Ram engine sizes

Hi there,

Im looking to import a Dodge Ram to the UK and would like to know what engine sizes they come in. I know very little about the truck but realy like the look of them. You cant buy them here so importing a second hand truck from the US seems like a good option. I will be using it as my second car to get me to bike races in.

Insurance in the UK for big engines is very very expensive so ideally i would like a small engined Truck. Would prefer a double cab but im easy.

Thanks

DC

4.7 and 5.7 (Hemi) v8's. Cummins Diesel,or the V6. If you go with a used you can get the 5.9 v8....i think pre 2000 year.

Dodge only makes the Regular and Quad cabs now. No Extra cabs if you want new.

What about a Dakota?


Thanks for the reply.

Thanks for the reply.
i only know about the dakotas for the last few years:

v8 4.7L
v6 3.7L

the 6 only makes about 30hp less then the v8, so it isn't that much worse.

i'd check trucks on ebay to see what all the engine sizes are.

You guys sure have some insane sized trucks there. Most of ours here are 2.5ltr. Im looking at over 9000 USD to insure even one that size. The UK trucks are pretty lame though and very small in size which is why im looking at importing. Is there nothing under the 3ltr mark?

Thanks for the help.

Y'all should see our rigs! That's nothin'! I don't know what's all in the UK, but here we have 6.1 V8s in cars. We got the 5.7L here and she usually gets 'bout 20mpg freeway. But we had the 4.7L in the durango which got about 24mpg freeway. Good luck, american trucks are big, bad brutes. That's why I like 'em. You could grad a monster truck with a 540 if ya want.

5.9L Inline 6 here, thats nearly a full liter per cylinder

the new inline 6's are going to be 6.7L

if you want something under 3L your looking in the wrong place if that is how insurance looks at it. my tacoma has a 2.4L 4 banger thats got about 140 horse. the only way to make my little yoda run anywhere close to my ram is to turn 3500+ rpm. my ram redlines at 3200 and makes most of it's power between 1500 and 2000rpm gotta love huge low windeing engines

I post on a few technology boards that are primarily European/British populated. You should see the reactions I get when I tell people I drive a truck with an 8.0L V10 engine. [8D] Apparently I'd have to be a millionaire over there to be able to insure it....and about 40 years old to have the ability to drive it. [&:]

And insuring my other vehicles (5.2L, 3.8L, 3.1L Turbo, and 2.7L) would be impossibly expensive. I wouldn't have any toys to play with

With engine sizes that big you would never get insured bro. As for running costs, were getting close t £1 per litre for petrol so even if you were a millionaire to afford the insurnace, your money wouldnt go too far on fuel.

Thanks for these replys, i appreciate the help. It looks like my dreams of owning a dodge are over. The insurance just wont work out, especially as im 21. Are there any other trucks i could get that are under 3 litre, I was looking at the chevy s 10's and such like.

Thanks.

Yeah, you may have to look towards the japanese to find smaller motor trucks. I'm glad I'm here in the U.S. to. Drivin' a 5.7L HEMI at 15. Only a 2.5 in a truck? That's the motor in our sebring! Well, not the exact motor.

You can get a 2.5 liter 4 banger in the 2nd generation Dakota 2wd, not sure if it was available with extended cab though.

Wow, I know vehicle sizes are smaller over there but wow. How do you guys move or haul anything with such small motors? I guess if you have little turbo diesels, but it's just not the same. Do they have campers and trailers over there? How does anyone pull them?
Neat to know how other people view their vehicles in different parts of the world.

If you want a truck under 3 liters, go with Toyota, or Nissan. They are the reliable choice for engines that small. The 4-banger new Tacoma gets like 20 mpg city.
