Ram Long-Hauler Concept

With the price of fuel expected to top $6 per gallon by the end of the summer, Americans are doing everything they can in order to save a buck. Used fuel efficient cars, both new and used are flying off the lots, with big full-sized gas guzzlers being left out there to rot. One company however is thumbing it’s nose at the higher cost of fuel and has in fact come up with a vehicle that not only sucks it down, but holds upwards of 160 gallons of it. Meet the Ram “Long-Hauler” Concept, a pickup truck that could possibly be the ultimate road burner for long distance travel. According to Pickuptruck.com, the Long-Hauler has a 197.4-inch-wheelbase and is based on a Class 5 Ram 5500 medium-duty chassis cab commercial truck. However, it’s been fitted with an 8-foot cargo dually-based cargo bed, and two custom fuel tanks that enable this monster to carry a whopping 162 gallons of diesel fuel.

Power on the Long-Hauler comes from a 6.7-liter Cummins inline-six-cylinder that pumps out 305 hp and 610 lb-ft of torque. All of this means that you’ll be able to tow that big car trailer of yours about 2,000 miles before you run out of juice. Just keep in mind that at the current price of $4.56 per gallon for diesel that you’d be paying almost $740.00 to fill it up… OUCH!!

    Can you imagine the massive market this truck is meant for? There will be literally millions of people snapping this truck up. Those guys at Dodge sure know how to get vehicles to people that need it. And they wonder why their in bankruptcy and taking tax payer dollars. Dodge would make this vehicle for all those asshole democrats and use up the oil and drive up gas prices so we can send our dollars to the middle east.

    *I shouldn’t have to put this, but yes there is just a smidgen of sarcasm*

    guys.. why the hate for dodge? its a damn good truck and its designed for the farmer who takes his own livestock/vegetables to market/slaughter house… theres a small market for vehicles like this * I SELL TRUCKS ALL DAY EVERY DAY* most people who buy trucks buy them for the image, some buy them for the uses (me for example, i load my bike in the back of my truck, loads of gravel and dirt, general WORK) anyone who buys this truck for the looks is just a douche who thinks its fuckin awesome…. its like hte Raptor *douche mobile deluxe*….
