It is during times like these that the idea of being able to escape into the wilderness starts to float around. If one were to want to execute such a plan, it would be helpful to have a vehicle ready to tackle even the toughest of terrains. It also wouldn’t hurt to have a 700+ horsepower supercharged V8 on tap either. While that might seem like a bit of a stretch, the upcoming Ram 1500 TRX Rebel seems to promise just that. Thanks to some more digging by the folks over at Allpar, we now have a few more details about the hellaciously powerful pickup truck.
The Mopar-centric outlet reports that the Ram Rebel TRX will debut with an adjustable suspension and steering system much like the ones found in other SRT Hellcat powered models. It is not clear at this time if the suspension will utilize a tuned version of the Ram’s air shocks or the dampers found on the other Hellcat models. Considering the TRX is slated to bring Raptor levels of off-road capability, the truck may have an entirely unique suspension all together.
Along with the adjustable suspension comes the ability to select different drive modes for the truck, which should change engine response and steering feel along with the suspension for different driving scenarios. Like with the suspension, these drive modes will likely vary from the road-going Hellcat models due to the TRX’s off-road duties.
While the Ram Rebel TRX hasn’t officially debuted at this point, FCA hasn’t been particularly shy about their Raptor-hunting intentions. Earlier this year the company teased the upcoming truck via the 2020 Drive for Design promotional poster, very much in FCA’s Easter egg type of way. Leaks published by Allpar suggest that the truck will launch with features like beadlock capable wheels, a bed-mounted spare tire, and a totally unique graphics TRX package.
For now though, the Ford Raptor-fighting Ram Rebel TRX will have to live on in our quarantine-induced day dreams.
