Dodge Ram HD to get 6.4L Hemi in 2011

According to, Chrysler is planning to replace the already-solid 383 hp 5.7L Hemi V8 with a larger engine for the next-generation Dodge Ram heavy-duty pickup. An all-new 6.4L Hemi V8 is on its way by 2011, assuming the company as well as the Ram survives. According to inside sources, it will have as much as 450 hp or even 500 hp.

The 6.4L V8 is said to be based on Chrysler’s current SRT8 6.1L Hemi V8, but with a larger bore and longer stroke optimized for use in three-quarter-ton and one-ton truck applications instead. Apparently the engine is already being tested on the road in Ram Heavy-Duty prototypes.

    Thanks for sharing such a great post. Dodge get lot of success from ram. Dodge Ram have 6 speed automatic transmission. The Drive layout is a typical RWD or a 4WD. Ram HD is available in three cab i.e regular cab; crew cab and mega cab. Interiors are same as the features of the 2009 model. Controller can communicate all information to the driver through the gauge cluster information center right between the speedometer and tachometer.

    I’m glad they’re making a HEMI in a higher literage than 5.7. I mean, the 5.7’s are a great engine, and already have a high HP and torque output, but a 6.4L would surely beat a match to beat. I estimate about 420HP and about 550-630 ft. lbs. of torque.
