Ram Hellcat!!

Anyone hear about this yet? Not sure I believe it, but you never know.

The 2018 Dodge RAM Power Wagon Hellcat is definitely going to be the best pickup truck ever produced upon its official release. Best may be a tall order, but it is going to be the most powerful. It is not just an ordinary Power Wagon, but having it called as Power Wagon Hellcat raises this beast of a pickup truck to a whole new level.

According to SUVs and Trucks, the 2018 Dodge RAM Power Wagon Hellcat is different from the regular Power Wagon which has 6.4-liter Hemi V-8 with 410-horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque. It is also going to, of course, get the Hellcat treatment with 6.2-liter Hellcat V-8 engine capable of producing an insane 707-horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque.

It will be paired with eight-speed auto transmission and all-wheel drive. This makes it an exceptional choice for high-speed off-roading adventure as well. Not only is it powerful, it can also negotiate any terrain available the smoothest way possible. To add to this, it will be equipped with 17-inch big wheels.

 

 


The 2018 Dodge RAM Power Wagon Hellcat will also get an updated styling changes. The front will have a large hood scoop and an all-black treatment adding to its masculine, powerful and sleek appeal.

This is reported to be the biggest rival of Ford F-150 Raptor. Unfortunately for Raptor, is has already been overtaken by the Power Wagon Hellcat because it can only produce 450-horsepower compared to the Hellcat's 707-horsepower.

As added by Torque News, another hot topic is Dodge RAM 2500 Power Wagon which was showcased at the Detroit Auto Show earlier last month. It has gathered enough attention as it will be powerful too. It has different trims best suited for every kind of buyer who is into powerful pickup trucks which perform differently from one another.

I gotta call this one a gimmick. I don't see a real use for huge HP on the top end for a 7000lb truck. The Raptor is a completely different animal from the Power Wagon. Yes, the Ford can do the crawling, but it's really better suited for Baja. Seems that the HC plant would be much better suited for the Rebel.

 

 

OTOH, these are image trucks, and only a very tiny will ever see anything but pavement. SO I'm sure some will line up for an $80k pickup.
