Default New 6.4 in the 1500?!

I heard a rumor of the new 6.4 Hemi could possibly be available in the 1500?! Anyone know if this has any validity? Would be awesome to have that much stuffed under your hood!

Man I would like to know!

We have a srt8 300 2013,and it is bad ass.

It would be helpful before I add more mods on my express.

A cold air kit puts the 392 at 500 HP at the fly wheel.

I don't know about the 1500, but I did hear about it being a possible engine for the 2500.

I will see if I can find the article I read awhile back.

The 6.4 is an option in the 2014 2500's. It has not made it down to the 1500's yet. They also recently mocked up what a 2014 SRT(-10) would look like but its not even an offical RAM concept, just a rendering.

Only rated it for 410 hp and 429 ft lbs, not like the 392s in the cars.

yeah what a waste.Whats the use having a bigger motor with just a small increase in hp and probably harder on gas.

They probably want to pull even with Ford and Chevy. Ford 6L is putting out 411, and the new Chevy 6.2 is around 420.....they both blew away the Ram in 0-60 pulling test with 5000lbs in a recent internet comparison(Chevy-11.2 sec, Ford-12.5, Ram-15.8)....Google all 3 for 2014 comparison and it will come up....Ram did have 1 advantage...it was 11-13,000 dollars cheaper than the others.

Like you said it got blown away. So to rate it 410hp when there's more to be had and have a chance to put a staple on the competition the ball was dropped. Just like the Cummins vs duramax and powerstroke. Its time to pull away again. This is my first gas truck I had three Cummins trucks all far from stock and tried hard to convince myself to buy a new Cummins, cant pull the trigger on them after driving one I was not impressed at all. I am impressed with my 1500 ram that can pull hills with my challenger on a trailer 70mph plus any day of the week and get decent mpg doing it. This truck is staying around awhile unless they pump up the 6.4 or get the Cummins back in the game.

The test was gm bias.The dodge did not have the 8 speed transmission.They put there top motor .Price for price the dodge would win.For the same price the ford would have the ecoboost and gm the 5.3 which is better than last year but still less power.

We just got in a 2014 6.4l 2500 where I work, not very impressive at all...although it was designed for torque so maybe it can tow a lot?
