It is finally happening. The forthcoming 2021 Ram 1500 Rebel TRX will arrive with an iconic Hellcat engine with 707 horsepower. Five years ago, TRX is just a concept that generates 575 horses. However, just like the rumors were writing, Ram will go straight for the 707 hp Hellcat. It is a move that makes perfect sense and the same engine is available in Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger Hellcat variants. Moreover, the Jeep Grand Cherokee also features the same displacement.
Now, it is Rebel TRX’s turn to offer this output and of course, astonishing performances. As you can see, only SUVs and cars are right now available with the Hellcat engine. Rebel TRX will become the first pickup to use it. Besides that, you can expect an aggressive exterior design and a very modern interior. The new model will go on sale later this year.
2021 Rebel TRX Will Look Like the Original Concept
Various reports are writing about the new 2021 Ram Rebel TRX. So far, the concept is everything we have like an idea of how the new model could look like. Thankfully, reliable sources are saying that the production model won’t depart from the concept in terms of design. It is hard to believe in that but it isn’t impossible to happen. The TRX variant is more beefed up than the regular Rebel variant.
As you know, Rebel is a rivaling iconic Ford Raptor. However, TRX brings even more aggressiveness. You can expect larger features such as the grille and the headlights. The same stands for the taillights, wheels, and bumpers. The wider appearance will provide even better stability and this pickup truck is a perfect off-roading model.
Modern Interior Based on Android
When it comes to interior design, new 2021 Ram 1500 Rebel TRX will follow the SRT models. That means the cabin will feature a bespoke trim and latest Uconnect infotainment system. It is a Uconnect 5 system built on Android so you will have plenty of features for your mobile phone. The Rebel TRX model won’t depart from its concept in terms of the seating layout.
Even the materials such as suede and leather will be in the offer. The comfort is at a high level for such a rugged truck. Furthermore, the legroom is ample so you can enjoy in longer trips. However, this truck is made for off-roading adventures so we hope for Ram to deliver a smooth ride. There will be room for four persons and we must say the Rebel TRX offers amazing safety ratings.
Astonishing Hellcat With 707HP Confirmed
As we already wrote, Ram skipped the concept with an engine that generates 575 hp. Instead, new 2021 Ram 1500 Rebel TRX will immediately offer an astonishing 6.2-liter V8. The famous Hellcat engine is a synonym for power and it can produce 707 horsepower. As we’ve seen in the latest spy shots, Ram did a great job with fitting this engine into a Ram 1500 platform.
However, this engine requires a beefed-up suspension and eight-lug wheels. As for the torque rating, Hellcat provides around 650 lb-ft. For example, Ford Raptor is the main rival and this pickup offers “only” 450 hp and 510 lb-ft of twisting power. So if you want to go for the power and amazing performance, Rebel TRX is your choice.
2021 Ram 1500 Rebel TRX Price and Release Date
As for the price details, it is still unknown how much new 2021 Ram 1500 Rebel TRX will cost. Some experts are saying you shouldn’t expect anything below $60,000. This powerful version will go on sale later this year or at the beginning of 2021. It looks like the Rebel TRX model is the next big thing in the segment.
