2006 Dodge Ram SRT-10 Pickup
The Dodge Ram SRT-10 was introduced February 13, 2003 but not put
into production until 2004. Unlike the previous Ram Trucks, the
SRT-10 was built solely for the purpose of speed. In fact, in
February 2004 it set both the Guinness World Record and Sports Car
Club of America's record for fastest truck. The previous record
holder, the Ford Lightning, attained a speed of 147.54 mph, while
the SRT-10 reached a high speed of 154.59 mph. The main attraction
of the SRT-10 is its engine, which is an 8.3 Liter V10 Viper
Engine. This engine produces 500 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and 525
lb-ft of torque at 4,200 rpm. With this engine the truck can reach
a top speed of 154 mph and can accelerate the regular cab SRT-10
from 0 to 60 in 4.9 seconds.
For consignment, a sports car disguised as a pickup truck. This
truck can certainly haul cargo, but its main theme is to definitely
haul ass. A top speed of 154mph you will not be fooling around when
going from job site to job site due to the V10 Viper engine under
the hood. This truck is equipped with a somewhat rare 6-speed Hurst
actuated manual transmission and presented in Inferno Red. Built
for toughness under the RAM moniker, but no fooling around on the
acceleration and speed aspect.
Bathed in the factory applied coating of Inferno Red, this truck
presents well with only minor chipping and a few small areas of
delamination of the clearcoat that are appropriate for the verified
59,581 miles. With its large tall body matching grille, and lower
rounded fenders flanking the central scooped hood and huge front
bumper/aero setup, it looks like a big sports car. A hood scoop,
raked windshield in tinted glass and all rounded off surfaces, in
all steel, let's go racin'! Add the rear spoiler off the top of the
rear tailgate, big black 22-inch wheels wrapped with 305/40R22
gummy rubbers, and you can run with the best of them. The bed is
totally lined with a Bedrug fully encompassing liner which is a low
pile carpet in gray. Dark tinted glass is all around, the badging
is correct, and I simply can't get enough of the added striking
viper tail stripe in matte black.
Lots-O conveniences in here with power windows, power locks, power
seats, an AM/FM/CD aftermarket stereo, and A/C all the creature
comforts of home in there. Leather bolsters frame suede inserts in
charcoal black and gray color are both very nicely preserved. In
the center is the Hurst 6-speed shifter, and the dash has neat-o
white faced gauges with some digital readouts inserted too. Gray
carpeting covers the floors, and a light gray felted headliner is
above all this truck/sports car-esque menagerie.
Look ...under the hood, it's a Viper engine! Yes, kids hold on
because we have 10 cylinders, (8.3 Liters of them to be exact), to
pump out EFI fed fossils and air to the tune of 500hp. It's quite
possible that a few extra ponies have been snuck under the hood
with the added cold air intake that makes the hood scoop fully
functional. On back is a 6-speed manual tranny in Tremec T56 form
and a Dana 80 pumpkin with 4.11 gears. A Viper engine never looked
so good in a truck!
The usual patina and wear certainly not out of the ordinary is seen
underneath. Sportscar like Bilstein shock absorbers are on along
with independent coil springs and leaf springs. Also seen are large
caliper power disc brakes on all 4 corners. A stock with shiny
exhaust snaking its way from front to rear and ends just under the
right side of the rear bumper.
A turn of the key and in my mind I heard Viper V10 but I was oddly
sitting up high behind the wheel looking out of what might be
misconstrued as a big rig. But it all came together upon a throw of
the Hurst shifter and pop of the clutch where I raced off to the
test track. Here it performed swimmingly with beautiful unending
acceleration, bias free braking (important!) and good handling
because it's a pickup truck after all! All functions were working
just fine, and it has a real kick when you get a bit leaded with
the right foot.
Look! It's a truck...No it's a sports car....No it's actually a
really cool and fast pickup truck with the heart of a Viper V10 EFI
high performance package. A burning inferno if you will. Come to
our Hallowed Halls and try to catch it before it
disappears...possibly into the V10 sunset.
