    I haven't been able to find any of this info anywhere so I thought I would share...

    I have been heavily involved with bringing a new front engine cover for the 5.7L Hemi to production. The main difference is this new cover has provisions for an automatic start/stop system set to be introduced on the Ram trucks in 2018. The supplier tasked with producing the cover has signed a contract for 390,000 parts per year with volume increases up to 500,000 through 2022. This conflicts with Allpar's prediction that the 5.7L will end production next year.

    I have been saying in multiple posts in this forum (matter of fact I did yesterday too)... the 5.7L will stay in production to at least 2021. At least for the cars that is.

    Allpar simply hasn't updated their info, many sources have also confirmed this. Thanks for the info and confirmation but please be careful posting. We don't want your job affected by posting info.

    Agreed 5.7 is here for a bit longer. Allpar News recently covered one of the potential replacements that is under development.

    OOOOH HEMI with Start/Stop..I like it! That could really help boost MPGs. Which is always icing on the cake and helps to keep V8s viable. That alone could possibly bump the HEMI's MPGs past EcoBust's....they basically get the same MPGs as it stands now in the real world.
    LONG LIVE THE HEMI V8!

    Will it be getting another power boost soon? I'd like to see the 5.7 break the 400hp barrier.

    I agree, Its been stagnant for a bit now. Going on five years. If I didnt like the whole truck as a package so much I probably would've moved on a few years ago for that reason alone. No Bueno RAM. They got to bump it up

    There will not be a TT Pentastar? It does make sense. Keep 5.7 liter till at least till GME T6 comes.

    I have heard that the 5.7 will break 400, and the 6.4 will also get a commensurate power boost. (They can't have both engines with output numbers starting with 4.). Both will get HP increases, along with torque increases. Nothing huge, just incremental, but enough to make a "real" difference.

    These were from sources that would not commit absolutely. So, more than rumor, less than fact.

    Lots of false info on this site, you have to know the difference between what's real and what is speculation / click bait

    Can you break it down for us? What's false and what's not?

    Thanks for the info.
    More than rumor, less than fact is not acceptable. FCA/RAM needs to crap or get off the pot. People are going to lose patience. The 4th gen RAM has had an awesome run and "Dodge" has a history of complaisance. But times are different and you just cant do that anymore. Its hard not to notice that they keep pushing things back and delaying projects. Hopefully when they do finally get these new products to market they are worth the wait.
    As to the power numbers, after being stuck at 395 for five years, they really need more than an "incremental" bump in power. I hope it really is enough for a "real" difference. If not, its a swing and a miss.
