News There’s A Supercharged Ram Rebel TRX In Our Future

There’s A Supercharged Ram Rebel TRX In Our Future

We all knew it was coming and here it is: The Ram Rebel TRX

  • The Rebel TRX will be powered by the Hellcat’s supercharged 6.2-litre V8.
  • With 717-horsepower, it will become the most powerful production pickup ever.
  • It will rival the Ford F-150 Raptor, and then some.

Once more, we have to hand it to FCA for taking things to the next level. Ram hinted that a real TRX was going to happen in time. They even went so far as to tease us all with a concept back in 2016. Now, however, it’s real. Ram will unleash a 1500 Rebel TRX very soon.

GMauthority broke the news with some exclusive spy pictures of important proof such as the hood badge that reads “6.2L Supercharged” and the hood itself which features a massive scoop. Within the scoop, we can see two lights which we’ll assume light up on command and probably in red.

So, we now know that the Rebel TRX will be powered by the 717-horsepower and 656 lb.-ft. of torque supercharged 6.2-litre from the Hellcats. We can safely guess that the TRX will also gain some beefier brakes, an appropriate chassis tune and quite possibly an assortment of pages from the SRT dashboard with various drive modes.

According to the story, the 2021 Ram 1500 Rebel TRX should debut later this year. Question is, will Ford take the time to boost the Ford Raptor’s 450-horsepower EcoBoost 3.5-litre to meet the TRX head-on? We hope so.
