Following up on the
success of the original Ram SRT-10 pickup introduced in 2004, Dodge
introduces the Ram SRT-10 Quad Cab for the truck enthusiast who
wants Viper performance in a pickup truck, along with room for the
family and serious towing capacity. Enthusiasts now have two choices
of the boldest, most outrageous pickups ever sold. After all, the
Dodge Ram SRT-10 and SRT-10 Quad Cab have what no other pickups can
match: an 8.3-liter (505 cu. in.) Viper V-10 engine making 500
horsepower and 525 lb.-ft. of torque. And 90 percent of that power
comes on between 1,500 and 5,600 rpm the range in which drivers
spend most of their time in normal operation. Beginning with a Dodge
Ram 1500 Quad Cab as a starting point, SRT engineers worked their
magic with the kind of goodies including a Viper V-10 engine,
performance suspension, awesome brakes, race-inspired interior and
bold styling. .
And, it offers an automatic transmission a super-duty four-speed
specially tweaked to provide optimum performance with the capability
of towing 7,500 pounds. The Dodge Ram SRT-10 Quad Cab has several
other unique features supporting its towing capability, including a
special transmission cooler, heavy-duty torque converter, special
front and rear strut and spring assemblies and all-season tires.
The Ram SRT-10 Quad Cab rides on 22-inch Viper-style custom wheels
and is equipped with Pirelli Scorpion all-season tires. Stopping
fast is just as important as going fast, so SRT engineers developed
a special braking system for the Ram SRT-10 Quad Cab that utilize
heavy-duty Dodge Ram components and unique four-pot opposed-piston
calipers that are new for 2005. A three-channel anti-lock braking
system (ABS) actuates new custom red brake calipers up front that
grip 15-inch rotors, and in the rear, modified heavy-duty red
calipers grip 14-inch rotors. Additionally, front brakes are cooled
with air ducted from the front fascia to reduce heat build-up.
There’s also a unique hood with fully functional air intake that
provides additional engine bay cooling. Details befitting the Ram
SRT-10’s outrageous attitude include “Viper Powered” badges on the
hood sides and a specially designed rear fascia with cutout for the
massive dual exhaust tips.
The SRT-10 Quad Cab receives a body-colored aluminum tonneau cover
over the pickup bed, outfitted with a unique spoiler for aerodynamic
efficiency. Special gas struts help in raising and lowering the
tonneau cover for easy access to the pickup bed. Body color choices
for SRT-10 Quad Cab include black, red and silver.
The interior for the Ram SRT-10 Quad Cab is a blend of comfort and
performance-bred utility, starting with the Viper-like red starter
button on the instrument panel, and following through with
race-inspired heavily bolstered seats with suede inserts that grip
the occupants. Other interior touches include a leather-wrapped
carbon fiber-patterned steering wheel, and brushed metal accents on
the instrument panel and door trim panels.
