2014 Ram Heavy Duty Pickups Get 6.4L Hemi


Ram Truck has raised the power bar again, this time with the addition of the new 6.4L Hemi V-8 to the 2014 HD pickups.

The $1,495 gas engine option over the base 5.7L Hemi, backed with the 66RFE six-speed automatic,  is said to deliver best-in-class horsepower and best-in-class torque among pickups with gasoline engines.

Chrysler Group says the 410hp/420 lb.-ft torque  6.4L’s durability and bang for the buck “provides a worthy gas-powered option to the segment’s overall standard-bearer – the 6.7-liter Cummins Turbo Diesel.”

One of the enablers for such performance is an active dual-runner-length intake manifold optimized specifically for the Ram Heavy Duty lineup. The result is improved low-end torque without sacrificing high-end power.

The legendary HEMI architecture provides the foundation of the 90-degree V-8. But its advanced technology is decidedly forward-looking.

Cooled exhaust-gas recirculation (CEGR), variable-valve timing (VVT) and Chrysler Group’s trademark Fuel Saver cylinder-deactivation technology all contribute to efficiency and help to capitalize on every cubic inch.
