Engine shot

Surely you would just buy one of these to be able to pop the bonnet and see the word "viper" written on the engine? I know I would if i could afford one haha

I dont honestly think this truck will be priced against the Lightning, which retails for US$30K, this thing would have to be US$40-45k.

But Id reckon a 6.8L V10 supercharged in the Lightning would give this Dodge a run for its money...

Hell yeah! I'd love to see Ford do that.

The Dodge chassis is a pretty poor one at that, so I hope for their sake this one's got some work done to it!

This Dodge Ram does nothing for me, personally I have hated the front end styling since it first inception.

Ford Lightning specs.

5.4L SOHC Supercharged

Top speed 142Mph
I think Ford quote 14.0 for the 1/4mile, but owners are getting mid/high 13s stock with around 101mph trap speed.

The smaller Dodge RAM Pickup and the sibling Dodge Durango SUV (A bit bigger than a Grand Cherokee) are actually both very attractive in the flesh. The bigger Dodge RAM looks out of proportion near the headlights in comparison.

The Durango looks a little bubbly in the arse, but was streets ahead of the previous Explorer and Expedition in terms of looks. Pity it was so damn heavy and slow.

But the F250 and F350 look way better in the flesh than the bigger RAM Pickup.
