Hey guys, look what's up at auto.com (Detroit Free Press)

2/7/02

CHICAGO -- Participants were taken for a ride at the
Chicago Auto Show media preview Wednesday as the entire press gallery,
weighing in at about 30,000 pounds, was tied to a new Dodge Ram
pickup truck and pulled about 30 feet.

The stunt was designed to show off the strength of the
2003 Dodge Ram Heavy Duty 2500 and 3500 pickup trucks.

The new trucks feature a return of the legendary HEMI engine.
An all-new 5.7 liter version, called the HEMI Magnum,
will be standard on both models. It produces an
estimated 345 horsepower and 365 foot-pounds of torque,
said Rich Schaum, executive vice president of product development.

A redesigned Cummins high-output turbo diesel engine
also is available, which produces 203 horsepower and
555 foot-pounds of torque,
giving it towing power of 23,000 pounds.

Wow, what if we had it in our 'Treps with rear-wheel drive. Can't wait for the 04's.

I doubt that such an engine would fit in the current Intrepid design. ;) Would be nice if it did, though.
