Here’s a first real look at the RAM Rebel TRX, and it looks ready to take on the Raptor.
RAM is expected to launch a full-on rival to the Ford F-150-based Raptor performance pickup in 2020 with the Rebel TRX. It's expected to get the Hellcat version of the 6.2L supercharged V8 found in models such as the Dodge Challenger Hellcat and the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, to name but two.
The 707hp figure is expected to remain (it could clearly be heard), and like other Hellcat-equipped models, the RAM Rebel TRX looks like it will get a revised body that's expected to be more muscular, based on the heavy camouflage on this prototype. Ride height and tires seem to be taken from the off-road-oriented Rebel variant of the 1500, suggesting the Rebel TRX will have off-road prowess to rival the Raptor, too.
Expect the Rebel TRX to go on sale sometime in 2020, either labeled as a ’20 or ’21 model. Prices should rival those of the Raptor's, which start at around $54,000.
