The next RAM Rebel to get Hellcat power?

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!
