While 2020 has certainly been nothing short of hellish for automotive shows and events, it certainly has been a year to remember when it comes to new automobiles. For example, from General Motors you have an onslaught of the 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe, 2021 Suburban, 2021 GMC Yukon and Yukon Denali, as well as the 2021 Cadillac Escalade. Then from Ford, you have the rebirth of an icon with the 2021 Bronco, the return of the Mustang Mach 1 nameplate, as well as the next-generation 2021 F-150. Then, from FCA so far, you have the 2021 Dodge Charger Hellcat Redeye, 2021 Durango Hellcat, and 807 horsepower Challenger Super Stock. On deck: the 2021 Ram Rebel TRX.
The 2021 Ram Rebel TRX is a doomsday machine aimed squarely at the Ford F-150 Raptor, and any other would-be contenders that may follow. Under the hood will be a 6.2L Hellcat engine, pushing north of 700 horsepower, coupled with a fire breathing V8 soundtrack. And like clockwork, the team at TFL managed to capture it in the wild, with a standard Ram 1500 body, and can be witnessed in their spy video below:
The 2021 Ram Rebel TRX will begin production at the very beginning of Q4 2020, according to our intel, corroberated by CEO Mike Manley in FCA’s recent Q2 2020 analyst call. Along with the Hellcat engine, the 2021 Rebel TRX is expected to arrive with a trick suspension system and some tech of its own in order to deliver class-leading performance. They’ve even gone so far as to put a size-related joke inside the truck’s cabin, aimed directly at the Ford F-150 Raptor.
So far, we haven’t seen the Ram T-Rex in any other body style, other than Crew Cab form. Which means shorty-shorty simps are about to get snubbed again.
