Its no more effecient, but it is ALOT more powerful. You get 100 more HP and ooodles more TQ.
I love my 4.7. In 2008, the new one debuted with 15HP less than the 03-08 Hemi.Yeah that's what I was thinking, thanks.
By the way I notice you have the 4.7, how is that engine? Because before I was looking at Rams I wanted a Quad Cab Dakota but the 4.7 made me nervous due to the fact that it is a new design and a SOHC so I was leaning towards the 5.9
Wow guy...I was referring to Fuel Economy. I had a 2000 Ram with a 5.9, I also had a 2005 Ram with a 5.7. The hemi was only slightly better. Calm yourself brother. It's not that serious.What??? The 5.7 is a smaller engine with better fuel mileage and more power, how is that NOT more efficient???
Yeah that's the only thing I can say, the 5.9 is cheaper than the Hemi, by the way the Hemi has 345 HP not 315, the new (2008) 4.7 has 302 hp, so it's 43 less.
Not trying to be a dick, just saying it has 345
yeah I am retarded, went to double check the #'s and looked at Tq instead of Hp.:doh:^The new 4.7L (2008 and up) actually has 310hp, so your both wrong it's shy of the old hemi by 35hp. It has 330lb ft though and I think that's a closer gap to the old hemi.
