Ram Teases New Truck to Be Revealed on May 10Ram
  • Ram released a short video teasing a new pickup truck that'll be revealed on May 10.

  • The nine-second clip shows a set of headlights obscured by dust and what sounds like a roaring engine.

  • The tagline "A New Force Is Landing" suggests a new Ram 1500 powertrain, likely a Hurricane twin-turbo 3.0-liter inline-six.

Ram is getting ready to reveal a new pickup truck. The brand last week released a short video on its social channels teasing the announcement, which will be made on Wednesday, May 10. The remaining question is what exactly will the Ram brand reveal?

The nine-second clip seen above opens with a dusty cloud over a desert surface. Then it cuts to someone looking through a pair of binoculars before cutting back to the cloud where a set of headlights from an obscured truck are speeding towards the viewer. What sounds like a roaring engine can also be head before the video ends with the words, "A New Force Is Landing" along with the date.

While we don't know for sure what Ram plans to reveal, it's most likely a new powertrain for the company's half-ton pickup truck. That's expected to be a version of the Hurricane twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six that's already available on the Jeep Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer. The engine's standard output is 420 horsepower and 468 pound-feet of torque, but there's also a high-output version that makes 510 horses and 500 pound-feet. Both versions pair with an eight-speed automatic transmission.


Of course, there's also a small chance Ram will reveal something else completely. Perhaps it will be the long-rumored return of the mid-size Dakota or another version of the Hellcat-powered Ram TRX. Both of those are likely long shots, but we'll all just have to wait until this Wednesday to find out. Stay tuned.
