Rumor has it that Dodge is going to be releasing pricing
for the 2004 Dodge Ram SRT-10 at the 2003 Detroit Auto Show.
The cool thing is that they may have both regular and quad
cab versions. A serious sport truck with room for four!
The SRT-10 will be powered by the 500-hp Viper V10.
But what does this have to do with Hemis? Rumors also mention
that the Ram SRT-10 may have the 500-hp Viper V10 replaced
by a Hemi V10 -- possibly pushing 600-hp. The Hemi design
is supposedly modular, so Dodge would be able to create a
number of Hemi variations, including this possible V10.
Here are some specifications that I am hearing (for 2004):
0-60 MPH in 5.2 sec
1/4 Mile in 13.8 sec @ 106 MPH (rumors suggest 12.8s)
Top Speed is 160 MPH
