Video: AmericanTrucks.com Dishes On The Ram Rebel TRX


It sounds like Ram is about to start hunting dinosaurs with some official Rebel TRX information finally starting to bubble to the surface. Long without a direct competitor to the Raptor, Ford’s off-road specialty, Ram might just blow the doors off of Brand-X’s best with a heavy dose of Hemi power. Per usual, AmericanTrucks (AT) had their own Adam Maqboul on the scoop in a recent edition of “The Haul.”

Obviously, the main selling point is going to be an over-the-top drivetrain, even though that picture is still a little blurry. “While Ram has not officially come out and said it, we are nearly one-hundred percent certain that the TRX model will come equipped with a variant of the supercharged 6.2-liter V8 found in the Hellcat and possibly paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission. […] Thirty-nine out of the forty Ram prototype models made for this had Hellcat motors; one had a Demon motor in it.” Adam explains.

With the success of high-horse cars like the Hellcat Redeye and Demon, it’s only natural that a bad-to-the-bone truck would be next. Since the heavy hauler market is already well taken care of by Cummins diesel power, a purpose-built off-roader in the Rebel TRX will fill a nice void. So, when can you get one on order? “The Rebel TRX in all of its potential glory does not yet have a release date stamped on it, but we’re hearing mumbles of a possible 2021 model year release,” says Adam. We’ll be waiting…impatiently.
