We absolutely hope that this will be true! It looks as though FCA’s RAM truck division is not intending to mess about when they reveal their Raptor-killer Rebel. The latter has been the RAM’s badass pickup, but it had more bark than bite. This is apparently going to change.
While RAM shoehorning a 6.2-litre supercharged V8 under the new 1500’s bonnet seems easy and cost-efficient enough, there’s a rumour circulating about that says that a 6.4-litre SRT 392 engine will be bored out to 7.0-litres and do without boost.
The TR, or “base” Rebel will receive the 7.0 and its project 520 horsepower and 525 lb-ft. of torque. The top-dog Rebel RTX will benefit from the 707 horsepower and 650 lb-ft. of torque from the Hellcat mill.
Ever truck-maker has an off-road prep hardcore truck but none of them will come close to the Rebel’s expected power and abilities, not even Ford’s 450 horsepower and 510 lb.-ft. of torque twin-turbocharged 3.5-litre V6.
This is another mad-mad FCA product we are looking forward too!
