Canadian Dealership Unleashes 707-Horsepower Hellcat Ram 1500
There’s no doubt that the Hellcat engine found in the Dodge Charger and Challenger SRT Hellcat is a power-hungry driver’s dream. With 707 horsepower, this hunk of beautiful, beautiful machinery is capable of unleashing power like none other in the industry. While Fiat Chrysler is already planning on introducing a Hellcat-powered Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT, one dealership in Ontario, Canada called Midland Chrysler has decided to take things a little further and put the beastly engine in a Ram 1500.
Because really—who wouldn’t want to put a 707-horsepower engine in a beefy pickup truck?

According to SRT Life, the dealership, who posted pictures of the Hellcat-powered Ram 1500 earlier this month on Facebook, has created a monster and its name is the Ramcat. By adding the Hellcat 6.2-liter V8 HEMI under the pickup truck’s hood, the dealership has made a sporty-looking utilitarian vehicle into so much more.
This pickup truck already looks sporty enough. Its mostly red exterior contrasts with the vehicle’s dark-tinted windows and black stripes. Even the wheels are a two-toned red/black combination that is sure to make heads turn. Add the bed cover’s Hellcat emblem, and you’ve got one hell of a truck to reckon with.

The dealer will even build one for you, though it costs more than a stock Charger Hellcat. Details are still being sorted in regards to its design, but this Ramcat is considered the first Hellcat-powered Ram pickup truck ever built. To produce the vehicle, the dealership purchased a crate Hellcat engine and mated it to the truck’s stock eight-speed Torqflite automatic and four-wheel-drive system.
Yes, you read that right. This Ramcat is one of the only four-wheel-drive Hellcats in existence.
Pretty sweet, no?
