Viper-Powered 2006 Dodge Ram SRT10 Is Fastest Pickup Truck In The World
Pickup truck aficionados like bragging rights. Having the best is what makes a pickup stand out from the
crowd, whether it’s the most outrageous engine, the boldest styling, or the fastest elapsed time. What if there were a pickup truck that had all those things together and more?
There is. And it comes in two versions: The 2006 Dodge Ram SRT10 and 2006 Dodge Ram SRT10 Quad Cab With a new-for-2006 hydroformed, fully boxed frame and new interior and exterior designs, the Dodge Ram SRT10 combines the ultimate in performance with extraordinary convenience and utility.
“We wanted to offer customers not only the boldest, baddest, fastest pickup truck in the world,” said Dan Knott, Director—Street and Racing Technology (SRT), Chrysler Group. “But also the boldest, baddest, fastest pickup truck with two rows of seating and towing capability. We now offer two choices of the most outrageous pickups ever offered.”
Dodge Ram SRT10-Like a Viper With More Space
One choice is the Dodge Ram SRT10—the best choice for the performance truck enthusiast who prefers a traditional cab and the ability to shift gears manually. The legendary Dodge Viper engine is the focal point of the drivetrain: an 8.3-liter (505 cu. in.) V-10 engine, unleashing 500 horsepower (372 kW) and 525 lb.-ft. (712 N•m) of torque. Transferring that power to the pavement begins with a Hurst shifter, fitted to a T-56 six-speed manual transmission.
Torque from the Dodge Viper V-10 engine is sent back to a heavy-duty differential outfitted with a 4.56 axle ratio to improve launch feel and low-end acceleration. The drivetrain combination is one key to making the Dodge Ram SRT10 a winner—literally. On Feb. 2, 2004, an unmodified Dodge Ram SRT10 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.”
Dodge Ram SRT10 Quad Cab-Performance for the Whole Family
For the pickup enthusiast who wants Dodge Viper-inspired performance and the ability to “go, stow and tow,” the 2006 Dodge Ram SRT10 Quad Cab fits the bill. It offers the ultimate performance for the family-oriented truck enthusiast who desires more interior space and more utility.
The SRT formula is injected into the Dodge Ram SRT10 Quad Cab: Dodge Viper V-10 engine, performance
suspension, awesome brakes, race-inspired interior and bold styling. In addition to second-row seats, there are other important distinctions between the Dodge Ram SRT10 Quad Cab and Ram SRT10 regular cab.
One distinction is an automatic transmission—a super-duty four-speed that is specially tweaked
to provide optimum performance with the capability of towing 8,150 pounds. The Dodge Ram SRT10 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.
