Chicago, Illinois – The 2004 Dodge Ram SRT-10 brings a massive dose of Viper power to the performance pickup segment, with a class-demolishing 500 horsepower and 525 lb.-ft. of torque. Topping 150 mph in maximum speed and reaching 60 mph in approximately five seconds, Dodge has recalibrated all expectations for truck performance.

“The Dodge Ram SRT-10 may be the first halo truck, but trust me, this truck is no angel,” said Wolfgang Bernhard, Chief Operating Officer, Chrysler Group. “The Ram SRT-10 is true to the performance ideals that created the original Dodge Viper: keep it simple and make it fast.”

“There is no replacement for displacement,” added Bernhard. “The Ram SRT-10 delivers its astounding performance in a way that only Viper owners will recognize, with an endless rush of torque.”

The Ram SRT-10’s mayhem-making ability is delivered courtesy of the highest displacement engine in a factory pickup truck – the same 8.3-litre V-10 that powers the all-new 2003 Dodge Viper. The V-10’s horsepower rating easily surpasses all other pickups – not to mention virtually every production sports car in the world.
