2019 Ram 1500 Hellcat 707-HP Review & Changes – Hidden in two of the push images for the 2019 Ram 1500, there’s an Easter time Ovum indicating that Chrysler is developing the world’s strongest pickup truck. The Easter Egg could be seen in the infotainment system of the Rebel, with the clock showing 7:07. Coincidence? Yeah, correct! Back when Dodge introduced the first pictures of the Challenger SRT Hellcat, it pulled a related trick with the Uconnect infotainment system, showing the fictive radio station ‘70s on 7. The query is, can Chrysler, in fact, fit the 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI V8 in the engine bay of the new model?
Remember the Rebel TRX Concept from September 2019, which builds up 575 horsepower at the crankshaft? There’s no question the technicians are capable of doing something very similar to the 2019 Ram 1500 with little changes to the firewall. Even though it may be based on the Rebel, the Ram Hellcat could be a successor to the 500-horsepower, V10-powered Ram SRT-10 sports truck first and an opponent to the Blue Oval’s F-150 Raptor second.
Until more observe, the fifth-generation Ram 1500 is available with two engines. The 3.6-liter Pentastar V6, which comes as standard with mild hybridization, churns out 305 horsepower. Prefer for the 5.7-liter HEMI V8, and you are taking a look at 395 horsepower, a.k.a. F-150 V8-rivaling sources.
Given time, the light-duty Ram will add the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 to the engine range. The oils-chugging powerplant has a whole lot on its plate thanks to the Power Stroke V6 in the F-150, which is capable of 30 MPG highway, 250 horsepower, 440 pound-feet, and 11,400 pounds of towing capacity.
