When you first hear the name RAM 1500 SRT Hellcat what first comes to mind is that it must be something special and outstanding, and that is actually true because this vehicle is something much different from what you are used to see on the roads. Chrysler launched a lot of excellent vehicles including the Jeep Grand Cherokee Hellcat which has become one of the most popular models on the market and the Dodge Challenger Hellcat which is as popular as the previously mentioned model. The company has been working for quite a while and it is almost ready to launch another excellent vehicle called the 2017 RAM 1500 SRT Hellcat. Currently, there is no official information about this pickup truck, but there are some rumors and experts’ opinions about possible changes and improvements of the vehicle. Let’s check its specifications in detail.
2017 RAM 1500 SRT Hellcat Exterior
The first thing we need to mention is that the 2017 RAM 1500 SRT Hellcat won’t be a classical pickup truck. As for the exterior, we can say that it will have sportier and more aggressive appearance than the vehicle it replaces. The front fascia of the car has been refreshed and provides an excellent appearance for the vehicle. The car sports a scooped hood which is expected to get additional air vents. If the rumors are true, the scooped hood won’t be the only change on the front fascia because the vehicle also gets newly designed headlights, new bumper and a brand-new grille. On the back of the pickup truck will be a pair of new taillights that match with the design of the headlights. The bed of the truck will probably remain unchanged because it is actually the most important part of it. It appears that this time the 2017 RAM 1500 SRT Hellcat will be offered with two wheels options. The base model will run on 22-inch 7 spoke alloy wheels, while higher trim levels can choose 24” wheels.
Since the company keeps details about the upcoming vehicle under wraps, there is no much information about the changes inside of the cabin but we definitely expect something outstanding. Well it is Hellcat, right? However, experts think that the interior of the 2017 RAM 1500 SRT Hellcat won’t change to such an extent. The overall design of the cabin will be similar to the outgoing model. We expect that the company is going to use high-end materials even for the base model. We also expect excellent technological features and equipment. We will soon tell you the price of the vehicle and you will immediately understand why we are so sure that it will be excellently equipped even though the company hasn’t released the official list of features for the vehicle.
2017 RAM 1500 SRT Hellcat Engine
If you thought that it is all about changes, you are wrong because the interior and exterior changes are nothing in comparison to the changes that took place under the hood of the 2017 RAM 1500 SRT Hellcat. The upcoming model will be powered by an extremely powerful engine and it will sit on a brand-new platform. Most probably, the newcomer will be powered by a supercharged 6.2-liter V8. This is actually the same engine which powers the Charger and the Challenger. This engine configuration enables you to get the maximum output of 707 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque. The vehicle can accelerate from naught to 100 km/h in only 4 seconds. The drivetrain will probably be mated with an 8-speed TorqueFlite gearbox.
The company hasn’t announced the price for the 2017 model, but some trusted sites claim that the vehicle will be priced at $55.000
