Of all the excessive vehicles produced during the 1990s, few were as needlessly extravagant as the 1998 Dodge Ram V10. Of course, this awesome vehicle could be ordered with a smaller V8, but what was the point? Nobody would have taken you seriously, cruising on the downtown strip, if you had anything but the 8-liter V10, a de-tuned version of the monster engine found in the Dodge Viper.
Needless to say, this immense truck – over 20 feet long and busting the scales at over 5,000 pounds, has incredible towing and carrying capacity, but seriously, who cares? It featured all the luxuries you would expect in a well-appointed sedan, and looked as tough as old shoe-leather, except a heck of a lot more comfortable.
Its 300 horsepower V10 propelled this beast to 60 mph in as little as 8.5 seconds, and boasted an electronically-limited top speed of 113 miles an hour, which is probably reasonable, considering that the Dodge Ram was never designed to handle very well.
