2011 Ram Hybrid
 
Looks like there's going to be a hybrid in the lineup next year as well they have part numbers in the 2011 catalog for the hybrid system...

I hope there's a good warranty on the battery pack it list's for $7,895.00..

That seems like a pretty cool idea! If it runs the same and makes the same amount of power! That would definitely help out the MPGs which is a great thing!

You are right about the warranty though!! If that pack goes it would be a really big hit! You may as well go and buy a different truck haha

Cool, can't wait to get some info on it. It was suppose to come out for 2010 however got delayed.

How many more mpg are you going to get from the hybrid?

glad to see it. Dodge seems to be a little behind the curve on the whole hybrid scene.

My FIL has a hybrid Yukon (it's an ugly beast, but he likes it), and he consistently gets in excess of 18-20 around town, with a 6.0L V8 in at least a 6000 lbs SUV. I don't think he's brought it on a road trip, so not sure what he gets there. I believe there is a version available in the half ton trucks too.

Not sure just a parts guy they give me no stats....

I'm just wondering how much more money it's going to be compared to a regular Hemi powered truck with the same equipment. I don't think too many people are going to pay $5,000 - $8000 bucks more just for the hybrid version. And like Sowardcustoms said, I hope the warranty on those batteries is great because an $8,000 battery replacement isin't too affordable of a repair.

If the hybrid was available when I bought my truck, I might have considered as I do mostly city driving. Hell, if there would have been 1500 diesel I would have bought it.

i agree, they should forget the hybrid and offer a small diesel that gets low to mid 30's mpg.

RockyRam 06-07-2010 04:37 PM

I'd go for either hybrid or diesel. The gm warranty on the hybrid system is 8 years 100,000. I'm sure the rams would have something similar.
