Spy Shots: 2009 Dodge Ram caught!
We've also got new engine news to report. Seems the popular 5.7L HEMI may get variable valve timing and grow in displacement to achieve a simultaneous increase in both power and fuel efficiency. The 4.7L base V8 will also get a 30 increase in torque, again accompanied by an increase in fuel efficiency. Look for Chrysler's new Phoenix family of V6 engines to donate a motor for the Ram, as well, possibly with cylinder deactivation so save fuel. Finally, as we reported a while back, a new Cummins light-duty diesel V8 is still being developed for the new Ram, as well.
