Hellcat-powered Ram pickup has finally come to life and it’s awesome!
Dodge decided not to build a 707 HP Ram pickup. The world was disappointed but, here is a dealership that didn’t hesitate to “hellcat” this one together. And yes, of course we how that a Hellcat-powered Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT is on its way. We just wanted a Ram pickup truck with the infamous 707 HP supercharged V8. Now, we’ve got one.
To be honest, it was only a matter of time before someone though of stiffing a Hellcat in a Ram.The noble call was answered and the beast is not on the streets. The dealership that is willing to give you a Hellcat-powered Ram is called Midland Chrysler and they are located in Ontario, Canada.

Needless to say, this is genuinely , the first Hellcat-powered Ram ever built and it is a truly running and driving beast.
According to the general manager of Midland Chrysler, Josh Hatton, the dealership bought a crate Hellcat engine from a South Carolina dealership. This cost them $45,000. Then, they mated it to the truck’s stock 8-speed Torqflite automatic and 4-wheel drive transfer case.
Exactly, this is the only 4-wheel drive Hellcat in the world.
Furthermore, the dealership has been working on this build since November of 2015. Most of the time, the crew has been sorting out electronics woes and wiring. It surely took a lot of work to make everything function like stock. Especially, given the fact that Dodge has never offered a 6.2-liter V8 in the Ram 1500.
The dealership also modified the firewall and oil pan on the Hellcat-powered Ram. They have also reprogrammed the power-trail control module and relocated the battery.Midland also had to install a body fit because of the tall, supercharged engine.
The result is this – a truck that functions like a factory Ram but, with a lot more power to it.
