You’ve heard of the Dodge Hellcat engine, but have you heard of the ‘Haulcat’?
With the Rebel TRX concept that was seen at the 2016 State Fair of Texas and the announcement of Hellcat engines being made available to the general public at the 2017 SEMA show in Las Vegas, Dodge fans couldn’t wait to see just how powerful a Ram truck could be.
Last year, Dream Giveaway Garage created a Hellcat-powered 2018 Ram 1500 4×4 truck with 707 horsepower.
That wasn’t a typo. They replaced the 5.7L HEMI in the 2018 Ram 1500 with the 6.2L HEMI Hellcat engine that is used in the Dodge Challenger and Charger. With additional custom performance tuning for an enhanced eight-speed automatic transmission, this is truly a one-of-a-kind truck.
The ‘Haulcat’ was created and given away to one lucky winner for the Dream Giveaway program that raises money for charitable organizations. The features included factory options as well as custom modifications made by Dream Giveaway Garage.
Factory features included an eight-speed 8HP70 automatic transmission, a Black Crystal Pearl exterior, a sport performance hood, a rear sliding window, an anti-spin differential rear axle, and a 3.92 rear axle ratio.
The additional modifications featured the 707 horsepower HEMI Hellcat engine, a custom engine tuning, a custom dual exhaust, a two-inch drop front suspension, a four-inch drop rear suspension, custom Haulcat graphics, an all-leather interior, and a custom bed cover.
This Dodge Ram truck was enhanced to do what no other truck has done before. While there was only one Haulcat created, you might be able to get behind your own Hellcat-powered truck in the near future.
Rumors have been circling around a 2021 launch of a Ram 1500 inspired by the 2016 Rebel TRX concept that would offer the Hellcat engine. While all that power is definitely something to look forward to, you don’t have to wait to get behind a specially designed Ram truck.
Dodge has proven that they can withstand the test of time with the limited-edition Ram Warlock. This model takes the old (spirit of the 1976-1979 models) and combines it with the new (2019 Ram 1500 Classic) to create a truck that will put a spell on you.
With a starting MSRP of $37,040, the Warlock features a new design with aggressive capabilities.
The monochromatic design of the Ram Warlock includes black powder-coated bumpers, 20-inch black aluminum wheels, black badging, black tow hooks, a black RAM tailgate badge, and available black fender flares and black side steps. Beyond looks, this majestic truck features a one-inch suspension lift (4×4 models only), heavy-duty rear shocks, and LED taillights.
For extra customizability, you can add a sport hood decal, chrome dual exhausts, and choose from nine available exterior colors.
The interior follows the same all-black design and comes standard with the luxury group package. This package includes all-black cloth seats, standard 40/20/40 bench seats, front and rear floor mats, a leather wrapped steering wheel, LED bed lighting, power-folding mirrors, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, an overhead console, and a seven-inch display.
Upgrades include premium cloth bucket seats, heated rear seats, and Uconnect 4C with an 8.4-inch touchscreen.
The magic doesn’t stop there. Get the power you want with a choice between a 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine with 305 horsepower or a 5.7L HEMI V8 with 395 horsepower. That’s a power upgrade to which we just can’t say no.
The Ram Warlock is a revamped blast from the past that will take you into the future. Why blend in when you can stand out with a uniquely designed Ram 1500?
With the new lineup of Dodge Ram trucks and the future of the 1500 with the Warlock and the potential of the Haulcat, you will want to collect them all.
