Question Fake HEMI or Real?

Hi everyone.

I'm about to purchase a used 2009 RAM 1500 Sport fully loaded and I have a question about the HEMI. Apparently, it's a HEMI because on the exterior of the truck, there is a badge for it as well as the CarProof states "8 cylinders". However, I researched a bit on Google and apparently for 2009 there were two types of V8s, there is a HEMI and another (forget the name, starts with T).

My concern is that out of all the HEMI RAM 1500s I've seen, all of the badges say "HEMI" and underneath "5.7L" except mine only says "HEMI" any idea as to why this is the case? Are there multiple HEMI engines I'm not aware of? Thanks.

The previous owner could have swapped out the stock badges. The two v8's are 4.7 and 5.7. If its a sport id assume it has the 5.7 hemi. One look under the hood will verify which it is

Yeah, a lot of people "Debadge" their trucks. "If" it's a Sport, then it has the 5.7, which is a HEMI. Simplest way to verify is to pop open the hood...

On some of the 09's they came out with just the word HEMI in chrome, with a brushed finish in the middle, others had the HEMI with the 5.7 under that, mine came with the HEMI by its self, it looks perfect on my silver truck, just different nameplates thats all.

I'm not really sure why, but alot if not most 2009 hemi's that where built later in the year had the badge without the "5.7 liter". I actually like them better. When I debadged my truck left mine on. You can easily have a dealer or probably even an online Vin decoder to verify it's a hemi engine, or just pop the hood and look

08/09, maybe odd 2010 Rams didn't say Ram1500 like the rest. For 2009 I am pretty sure almost all models except maybe real late 09 models all had just HEMI on it. Had a customer with an 09 today which just said HEMI on it.

You can "rebadge" with any hemi badge that you like. Dealer can get you whatever you like. I have to rebadge mine, because my bushwackers required removing the originals.

i just removed the word RAM





when it was new



this is a 2009 Ram with the HEMI engine, not any doubt about it, it is written right on top

Thanks guys for the responses, I checked the hood earlier and it says HEMI 5.7L - just find it weird that the badges are random.
