Here in the United States, beefy pickup trucks and 4×4 SUVs seem like they’re a dime a dozen. Across the pond in Europe, however, they are far rarer. But that doesn’t mean Europeans don’t know how to build them well, as evidenced by the Bigfoot Edition Dodge Ram 1500 by GME Performance.
An aftermarket performance-focused brand, the Germans at GME clearly know how to imbue a bedded 4×4 with even more oomph, as they cleverly added a supercharger to this 1500’s 5.7-liter engine — boosting the horsepower to a whopping 550 and the torque to 530 foot-pounds. The brand even claims that, with a few more upgrades, they could get up to 900 ponies out of this beast. It also gets a patented air-water-air intercooler for increased combustion efficiency, two-piece 12×20 inch forged wheels with matching Toyo all-terrain tires, and a FOX performance suspension (amongst other things). It might not be an American customization job, but we’d happily take this monster over any terrain the U.S. has to offer.
