2016-Ram-1500-105-876x535Are you the proud owner of a brand-brand new 2017 Ram 1500 which has a Hemi badge on the fender? Does the 5.7-liter V-8 promised by of which badge seem to lack a little, er, oomph? Maybe the idea’s time to pop the hood along with do a quick spark-plug count: Apparently, Ram accidentally put Hemi badges on a bunch of 3.6-liter V-6–powered 1500 pickups the idea sold to customers.

Automotive News brings us the story of Fiat Chrysler Technical Service Bulletin 23-053-16, a repair procedure so delightfully brief, we’ve reprinted the idea here in full:

products: 2017 (DS) Ram 1500 Pickup

1. If the vehicle has Hemi emblems installed along with the vehicle does not have a Hemi engine, the emblem will need to be removed.

This kind of can be most assuredly not initially such a mistake has happened, along with the Allpar forum discussion about This kind of Ram mishap can be full of examples of mislabeled vehicles being sold without the engines or drivetrains their badges promised.



inside the end, the idea’s a mistake nearly anybody could have made, although we imagine some owners of the affected trucks might undoubtedly prefer of which Ram install a Hemi V-8 rather than remove the badging.
