Ram is about to launch the Rebel TRX concept truck in 2019. The production will start and first models will be out. This performance-oriented truck is going to create a massive amount of power. It will compete with other pickups beefed for an off-road drive. This is the response from FCA to TRD Pro versions of Toyota Tacoma and Tundra. With 2019 Ram Rebel TRX package, Ram trucks will be more capable to run over various terrains.
Although the vehicle was initially planned for 2021, the company speeds up the development. It will result with the 2019 Ram Rebel TRX on streets and off the road already next year. We already know some details about this model, but more of the info is still unconfirmed. Highlights are Hemi V-8 engine and special design for exterior and interior.
2019 Ram Rebel TRX specs
Under the hood of the 2019 Ram Rebel TRX is a powerful 6.2-liter V-8 engine. We know this unit from Dodge Challenger and Charger Hellcat models. However, for these cars, engineers tuned the drivetrain to 520 hp. Earlier, the same drivetrain could create 575 hp. For 2019 Ram Rebel TRX, a supercharged Hemi engine will come with raw power. Without the detune, it can make 707 horsepower.
Ram 1500 debut hints details
Some fans are going so far, that they can spot some hints where ordinary truckers can’t see anything. For example, the new 2019 Ram 1500 had a presentation in Detroit. As the biggest stage for showing off, the pickup was one of the stars. We saw the new design, diesel engine, refresh of its trim levels, new equipment. But, true fans are checking every detail. The Uconnect system is the key here. While most of us are comparing changes to the previous edition, rare will spot the time set on display. We doubt it is 7:07 by chance.
2019 Ram Rebel TRX unique styling
Fans could see the preview of the concept launched back in 2016. However, we are sure that most of the items will be present on the production model. If we get lucky, it will be 2019 Ram Rebel TRX.
So, besides the engine, the truck is specially designed for toughest terrains and weather conditions. Designers tried to make this truck pretty aggressive. And they made it. Ram front grille is already recognizable and expected. Huge fenders and steel bumpers will protect the body and extend the life of 2019 Ram Rebel TRX.
Also, the truck is getting a special suspension. For better off-road capabilities there is 4×4 Performance Control System that allows the driver to select one out of five drive modes. By gaining more traction, the pickup will be perfect for desert runs. Link coil rear suspension system is unique in the industry.
We already mentioned the new infotainment system for the base Ram 1500. The same features with some upgrades will be in 2019 Ram Rebel TRX. However, this is not the biggest highlight of the cabin. Ram provides six-point Racing Harness for all passengers. The comfort is on the highest level, although seats are not wrapped by leather. Premium cloth and suede are the first-class.
TR model to come before 2019 Ram Rebel TRX
As we are getting closer to the launch date of 2019 Ram Rebel TRX, we hear that company will release another off-road truck. However, the Ram 1500 TR is not going to make so much power, although it will use bigger displacement. A 7.0-liter engine is going to attract attention, but it will be only a prelude to TRX model.
2019 Ram Rebel TRX price
This is something experts can’t solve. There are no hints about the price of the 2019 Ram Rebel TRX. Ford is selling F-150 Raptor for just above $50,000. On the other hand, GMC Sierra Denali costs $70,000.
