It’s time to take it back to the early 2000s. If you were looking for the biggest and baddest truck out there in 2004, then you would’ve wanted to get yourself a Dodge RAM SRT-10 truck. This high-powered vehicle dominated the streets from 2004 to 2006. It was a sport pickup truck that was created in limited quantities but came up big in horsepower and torque. Today, most trucks are known for their off-roading ability. The Dodge RAM SRT-10 was a street truck that ruled the road in a whole other way.
While you can get a great variety of used trucks for sale at our dealership near San Marcos, the Dodge RAM SRT-10 is a little rarer. However, if you want to get your hands on this mighty beast, our team can definitely help you find one. Read on to learn more about the band power on this truck.
The Dodge RAM SRT-10 is no ordinary used Dodge RAM for sale. This truck was created by DaimlerChrysler’s Performance Vehicle Operations division. Engineers from both the Dodge Viper and the Plymouth Prowler came together to create this bad boy.
The concept was introduced at the 2002 North American International Auto Show, but the trucks were not produced until 2003. The Dodge RAM SRT-10 only had a three-year life span. Only 10,046 of them were made in total.
Are you ready for some fun facts? In July 2004, the Dodge RAM SRT-10 broke both a Guinness World Record and a Sports Car Club of America record for the world’s fastest production truck with a speed of about 154 MPH. The record was set by NASCAR driver Brendan Gaughan. This made it the world’s fastest full-size pickup truck.
This truck was well-known for its performance. In fact, Motor Biscuit deemed it “a hilariously powerful truck.” The Dodge RAM SRT-10 came with an 8.3L V10 engine that was first used in the third generation Dodge Viper. This Dodge RAM V10 provided an incredible 500 horsepower and 525 pound-feet of torque thanks to a supercharger.
One variant of the Dodge RAM SRT-10 was the Regular Cab, weighing in at 5,310 pounds. This trim could get from 0 to 60 MPH in just 4.9 seconds. It could also go a quarter of a mile in about 13.6 seconds. The other option was the Quad Cab, which weighed 5,618 pounds. The Quad variant got from zero to 60 MPH in 5.3 seconds and could go a quarter of a mile in 13.7 seconds. The Regular Cab utilized a Tremec T-56 transmission, and the Quad Cab used a 48RE four-speed automatic transmission. Both cabs featured a Dana 60 rear axle.
The Dodge RAM SRT-10 had a custom-tuned suspension, giving it a low and stylized frame. High-speed performance was enhanced thanks to Bilstein shock absorbers, performance springs, and aerodynamic design on the exterior. Plus, a fifth shock absorber was added to the rear axle to prevent wheel hop.
While the power numbers may have been out of this world, it’s fair to say that Mother Earth didn’t necessarily love this vehicle. The Dodge RAM SRT-10 got an EPA-estimated 9 city and 12 highway MPG.2 We hope drivers had lots of local gas stations!
For the exterior, the Dodge RAM SRT-10 featured a wide hood and honeycomb grille. A scoop in the hood allowed cool air to come in to help with all of the heat being created by the supercharged engine. “Viper Powered” lettering framed the sides of the car to make sure everyone knew there was a monster under the hood. SRT-10 logos were added in chrome, and a spoiler was added to the back. The spoiler also helped with airflow and drag. A beautiful 6-foot-3-inch truck bed was standard on both the Regular Cab and Quad Cab.
On the inside, silver details covered the doors and armrest. Race-inspired, suede-trimmed leather seats went nicely with the leather-wrapped steering wheel. Aluminum sport pedals helped you feel like a racecar driver in this large truck. The center-mounted tachometer, like the ones found in many sports cars, had “SRT-10” inscribed in silver writing. High-end features like an Infinity sound system, navigation, Bluetooth, and satellite radio were available for the truck. As a nod to the famous Dodge Viper, there was also a red start button, Viper gauges, and a Viper shift knob.
The engine is one of the most exciting (and insane) things about this truck. The heart of every Dodge RAM SRT-10 is an 8.3L V10 engine that produces 500 horsepower at 5,600 RPM and 525 pound-feet of torque at 4,200 RPM. Truck enthusiasts will recognize this engine from the famous Dodge Viper. You could control this animal with a four-speed automatic transmission or a six-speed manual transmission.
When it first arrived in 2004, the Dodge RAM SRT-10 retailed for about $50,000. If you want to get one today, your price will depend on how many miles the truck has on it. If you find a low mileage example of this truck available (about 30,000 or less), you can expect to pay about $30,000 for it. High-mileage trucks are valued at even less than $30,000.
Unfortunately, the Dodge RAM SRT-10 was only available with rear-wheel drive. However, handling is not an issue on this vehicle. This truck was raced by professional NASCAR drivers and broke tons of records. You could also choose if you wanted to rule your truck with a four-speed automatic transmission or a six-speed manual transmission. It’s rare for a truck to offer you the power to drive manually.
According to the Guinness Book of World Records, it is this bad boy. The Dodge RAM SRT-10 broke 154 MPH when driven by NASCAR driver Brendan Gaughan. No truck has been able to do the same since. And, let’s remember that this is a full-size pickup truck we are talking about here.
At our Dodge RAM dealer in San Antonio, we understand that truck enthusiasts want a powerful machine. The Dodge RAM SRT-10 is that and more. Trucks like the Dodge RAM SRT-10 simply don’t exist anymore, and we may never see one like it again. From the powerful engine to the manual transmission to upgraded suspension and more, it’s no wonder enthusiasts are still talking about this vehicle since 2004. A newer truck may be more capable, but you can get a Dodge RAM SRT-10 for a fraction of the cost and score a unique engine and more power! Contact our dealership to learn more about getting one for yourself.
