Half-ton vans aren’t precisely match for European roads. Even America’s best-seller, the Ford F-150, is not formally accessible within the Outdated Continent. However that does not imply that no one’s shopping for them throughout the pond. In actual fact, AEC Europe imports Dodge and Ram autos to the continent for individuals who desire a greater rig, and that features the Ram 1500.
So what do Europeans do with an enormous machine? A high pace run, after all, accomplished on the favored unrestricted sections of the German Autobahn. Now, we’re jealous.
Uploaded by TopSpeedGermany on YouTube, seen within the video embedded above is a black Ram 1500 Laramie Sport, which we presume to have the Sport Look Package deal. It carries a hefty 5.7-liter Hemi V8, which is the one accessible choice throughout the Ram truck lineup there, in accordance with AEC Europe’s web site. This big mill can produce as much as 395 horsepower (295 kilowatts) and 410 pound-feet (556 Newton-meters) of torque.
The Hemi-powered 1500 would not have an official top-speed determine, we have seen related top-speed runs the place the truck is electronically-limited to 105 miles per hour (169 kilometers per hour). It looks as if the 1500’s pace limiter has been disengaged within the video because it reaches 122 mph (196 km/h) primarily based on the speedometer.
But when that is not sufficient, Europeans can have one thing much more highly effective this month. AEC Europe introduced again in August that the 2021 Ram TRX is formally coming to Europe, which packs an even bigger supercharged 6.2-liter V8 that makes 702 hp (523 kW) and 650 lb-ft (881 Nm) of torque.
The Ram 1500 TRX (seen within the gallery above) will come at a value, although. Within the U.S., the supercharged truck at $69,995 sans vacation spot cost and will go as much as $100,835 or round 84,000 euros with the present change charges.
