We found slower traffic pulled to the side as soon as we came up behind them
:evil:
The typical references to fuel mileage were missing.
:)
One of the reps from Chrysler Groups Performance Vehicle Operations (PVO) observed that the SRT-10 wasn't afraid of bad weather, "not cyclones, typhoons or lightning."

Remember, traction control is not available.
:) x :)
Just remember, there is no traction control on this monster.
:) to the :) power
They told us that there would only be about 3,000 of the SRT-10s built
:(
It's a toy for performance enthusiasts who can justify an indulgence with a $45,795 sticker price (including destination).
:Q :D

Dear Daimler/Chrysler

I would be significantly interested in a Viper-powered Town & Country. Please inform me as to the availability of such a vehicle.

Sincerely,

Rent

I have to wonder whether this is anywhere near as practical as a Lightning. The Viper requires VERY expensive routine maintenance, and if this truck is similar it will be incredibly costly to maintain if it logs any real mileage. Pretty cool in any case.

I'm sure more can be dug up somewhere, Heck the Cummins HO is 600lbs of torque.

I personally think the HD edition F-150 w/ some after market tweaks to bring it up to Lighting performance is the best bang for the buck...as far as fast trucks go.
