2005 Dodge Ram SRT-10 Regular Cab
On Feb. 2, 2004 an unmodified 500-horsepower, Viper-powered Dodge Ram SRT-10 earned a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records as the world’s fastest production pickup truck with a measured top speed of 154.587 mph (248.783 kph) sustained over a flying kilometer. Not only is it fast, the Ram SRT-10 is also quick, with 0-60 mph times in the low five-second range.
For 2005 Dodge Truck Enthusiasts now have two choices of the boldest, most outrageous pickups ever sold. The Dodge Ram SRT-10 and SRT-10 Quad Cab both feature a 8.3-liter (505 cu. in.) Viper V-10 engine making 500 horsepower (372 kW) and 525 lb.-ft. (712 N•m) of torque. The Dodge Ram SRT-10 Regular Cab is still the logical choice for the performance truck enthusiast who would rather see a clutch pedal than two extra doors in the boldest, baddest pickup on the planet.
The Ram SRT-10 puts its V-10 to work through a T-56 six-speed manual transmission fitted with a Hurst shifter. For 2005, a new drivetrain enhancement has been added to further help get that power to the road: The Ram SRT-10 now has a new 4.56 axle ratio to improve launch feel and low-end acceleration. The Dodge Ram SRT-10 rides on 22-inch Viper-style custom wheels. Regular cab models are equipped with 305/40 R22 Pirelli Scorpion tires.
Stopping fast is just as important as going fast, so SRT engineers developed a special braking system for the Ram SRT-10 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. New for 2005 on the styling side of the Ram SRT-10 Regular Cab is an optional body-color aluminum tonneau cover over the pickup bed, outfitted with a unique spoiler for aerodynamic efficiency. An optional Protective Pickup Box Tray is also available with the tonneau cover. Body color choices for the 2005 Regular Cab Dodge Ram SRT-10 include black, red and silver.
The interior for the Ram SRT-10 regular 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.
