Ram 6.4 still on track

Under the hood of the 2012 Chrysler 300 SRT8, the new 6.4-liter

Reliable source oh2o has confirmed that the 6.4 liter V8 engine for Ram trucks is slated for the 2014 model year. He believes that the company is targeting over 20,000 6.4-equipped Rams per year, which would mean that the company is building more 6.4 Rams than 6.4 SRT cars.

The 6.4 will be sold in both Ram Heavy Duty pickups (2500 and 3500) and the Ram medium duty chassis-cabs (3500, 4500, and possibly 5500), which are heavier-duty than the Ram pickups.  Adding a gasoline engine would enable Ram to substantially drop the entry level cost of these trucks, providing better “first glance” comparisons to Ford. While most buyers will still opt for the diesels, having a similar base price may prevent some fleet managers or individual buyers from ruling Ram out at the start.
