Ram HD Mule Spied with Incognito Hood Scoop

Ram Could Be Following GM with Ram Air Intake System

Earlier this year, we caught a Ram HD mule with a prominent hood scoop, leading some to believe that Ram was toying with the idea of offering the Hellcat supercharged Hemi V-8 in its purpose-built HD off-road truck, the Ram 2500 Power Wagon. Now, we find yet another Ram HD with a hood scoop but of a different sort. This time, the scoop is much lower-profile and less prominent than it was in the earlier mules. The spy shooter believes these trucks are Cummins-powered. Interestingly, General Motors shared some details of the dual-circuit intake system on its 2017 Duramax HD trucks, with the air intake split between a hood scoop intake and a conventional fender-mounted intake.
Could it be possible that Ram is exploring a similar concept? And how fortuitous that Ram could potentially use its eponymous name for a “Ram Air” intake system? Once at the top of the HD torque heap with the Cummins 6.7L I-6, Ford has recently retaken the top spot with 925 lb-ft with the 2017 6.7L Power Stroke V-8, and most are expecting the new L5P Duramax to produce well in excess of 800 lb-ft of torque. Could Ram be preparing the first production HD pickup to hit the 1,000 lb-ft benchmark?
