Pickup trucks are on the rise, and Ram is one of the brands experiencing the most growth. With so many competitors in the industry releasing different models, packages, and trims, it would seem there’s a pickup truck for everything. There is a hole in the market, however. In a place where luxury trucks and off-road trims are commonplace, track-ready performance has been overlooked. Ram might be hoping to fill that void with a Ram SRT-10 successor.
While other brands invest time and money in the off-road pickup truck segment, enthusiasts clamor for the days when more sporty, performance-oriented trucks were around for those who prefer to stay on the pavement. The Ram SRT-10 offered the same V10 engine found in the Dodge Viper and a 0-60 time of only 4.9 seconds. What better way to combine track-ready performance with pickup truck capability than to build its successor?
Right now, Ram is hard at work on the Rebel TRX, a powerful, full-size off-roader, to compete with others on the market. A closer look at the Rebel TRX could give us insight to what a Ram SRT-10 successor could be. The new truck even packs a supercharged Hellcat V8 engine under the hood. Could a street-performance pickup be getting a Hellcat engine, too? While Ram representatives won’t confirm that a new SRT-10 is coming, they won’t deny it either.
