Someone Dropped a Dodge Hellcat Engine into a Ram Pickup
707 horsepower in a truck? Yes, please.
The most aggressive truck currently offered in the Ram family is the 410-horsepower Ram Power Wagon Laramie. It's a fine machine, but it's no Hellcat. Thankfully, someone decided to bring a Ram pickup with a 707-hp Dodge Hellcat motor under the hood into the world.
The truck, which we first found through SRTLIFE, is a Ram 1500 with smoked headlights, Hellcat badges, black-and-red-painted wheels, a cold-air intake, and, of course, that mental, supercharged 6.2-liter Hellcat V8. The truck was built by Midland Dodge in Ontario, Canada, at the request of a customer. On Facebook, the dealership notes they plant to install a carbon-fiber driveshaft and a lowering kit as well. From the pics, the build looks incredibly clean, and the engine appears to fit almost perfectly under the hood of the truck.
For now, the only cars that can be bought with the Hellcat engine from the factory are the Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger. The Jeep Grand Cherokee will also soon be graced with Hellcat treatment sometime next year.
