2018 Ram Rebel TRX Features, Rumors, Price

Where there’s smoke there’s fire. And it just might not even be a secret since Ram wants to take Ford Raptor head on. If they sit idly Ford will suck up all sales when it comes to big powerful pickups. And FCA has something on their mind. Jim Morrison, head of Ram told that Rebel TRX, for now, is just a concept, but they would consider production in the near future. And if the rumors are true, 2018 Ram Rebel TRX will come off the production line at the end of 2017. And will it fulfill expectations? Well, it just might.

2018 Ram Rebel TRX – Design

It is based on regular Ram 1500 Hellcat, but with more improvements for durability. Since it’s just a concept we can say that it might look a bit different, but we get the picture of how will it look like in general. Jim said that for now, it is a “design study”. And boy it’s good. We can surely say that this vehicle will be every Ram fan’s dream.

2018 Ram Rebel TRX – Engine

Of course, more important is what lies under the hood. For now, Ford is the horsepower king with 450 horsepower in F-150 Raptor. And this concept features 6.2-liter Hemi V8 with a supercharger added. It produces amazing 575 horsepower. And even if that isn’t enough, we can even expect more horsepower in the production version. Hellcat engine comes with the eight-speed automatic transmission which transfers torque to all four wheels.

Morrison also said that it will go 100 mph on any surface. And that isn’t something that is hard to believe when we see those 37-inch tires, 13 in wheel travel. And with off-road bypass shocks and strengthened suspension, it just might do that. Front and rear axles are the same as on Ram 1500. The engine is also pushed back towards the front shocks for better weight distribution and smoother ride. Not to mention better tow capacity.
