Ram Rebel TRX Concept Could Be Powered By Hellcat V8 Engine With 707 Horsepower
Many are excited about the 2019 Ford Ranger Raptor, but it has yet to be officially announced for the United States. But in the super performance pickup truck genre, it might be the Ram Rebel TRX that captures the hearts, minds, and dollars of truck enthusiasts.
There is a new report from 5thGenRams that states Fiat Chrysler will take their enormously powerful Hellcat engine featured in the Charger and Challenger and install the massive powerhouse into the Ram 1500 pickup. The only negative from this report is that we wouldn’t get this spectacular Hellcat-powered pickup truck until 2021.
The Ram Rebel TRX concept would reportedly have the Hellcat 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine that pumps out 707 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. That would be the most powerful engine in a mass-produced pickup truck. The report also says that there would be a less powerful version and be called the Ram Rebel TR. Dodge unveiled the original Ram Rebel TRX concept a few years ago and it was to have 575 horsepower. That concept pickup truck never advanced past a concept vehicle.
