Ram Rebel TRX: beware of the truck
The RAM 1500 is a truck with many qualities. But it lacked a little something to satisfy the most maniacs among us: an overpowered engine. Make no mistake; we don’t believe the RAM 1500 is underpowered. But admit that we always love it when there is more!
And that’s exactly what the production version of the Ram Rebel TRX will offer later this year. On the menu of this van intended to cross new frontiers, the 707 horsepower engine found under the hood of the Hellcat models! 8-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive will be standard.
According to reports, the Rebel TRX will remain faithful to the concept presented in 2016. Except for this engine, the most powerful that all expected. This means that we will see a truck that is more than just a reinforced Rebel. He will now be a serious fighter against the Ford if the truck deploys as the reports suggest.
Inside, the Ram 1500 TRX should follow other SRT models, including custom trim and a completely redesigned Uconnect infotainment system. Because it would be the Uconnect 5, FCA’s latest infotainment system built on Android, which should make this truck a fairly complete everyday vehicle.
The aerodynamic exterior additions will complete the decor, just like colossal air traps housed on the hood that will make it look meaner. As for the general appearance, it will be larger than that of the current RAM but will display the same configurations, either an elongated cabin with a 6’4″ box or a team cabin with a 5’7″ box.
The truck should be unveiled in a few weeks in its production version, and be offered from September onwards in dealerships.
