The Dodge Ram SRT-10 was designed by the Dodge Street and Racing Technology group and produced from 2004 to 2006. Its 8.3-liter V10 engine produced 500 peak horsepower and 525 foot-pounds of torque at 4,200 rpm, with 90 percent of its torque available from 1500 rpm to 5600 rpm. This gave the SRT-10 impressive acceleration figures, especially for a full-size pickup. A regular-cab SRT-10 had a 0 to 60 miles per hour time of 4.9 seconds, only a second behind the 0 to 60 time of the 2004 Dodge Viper and less than half a second behind a first-generation Viper

Many Dodge Ram trucks built between 1994 and 2003 offered an 8-liter V10 Magnum engine as an option, but this engine was not the same as that used in the Vipers of the time. The Viper V10 was designed by famous Italian car company Lamborghini, while the Magnum V10 was an evolution of Dodge's own LA engine line.
