A high-performance off-road Ram 1500 Rebel TRX pickup truck still appears on the market this year.
According to the latest info from Mopar Insiders, the debut of the model is expected at the company’s “What’s New” event to the press in the end of June 2020.
Production will start in September / October. Now the automaker is informing dealers about their TRX allocations.
The model is part of FCA’s five-year plan. The Ram 1500 Rebel TRX should have premiered at the 2020 NAIAS in Detroit. As we know, the event was canceled due to the coronavirus.
What do we know about the TRX version?
The truck comes with a supercharged 6.2-liter 707-hp Hemi Hellcat eight-cylinder engine, a ZF-sourced 8HP95 eight-speed automatic gearbox, a full-time four-wheel-drive (4×4) system, selectable drive modes and launch control. The vehicle will likely have lifted suspension and much wider track that the rest Ram 1500s.
Inside, the TRX features large aluminum paddle shifters, a different gear shifter that replaces the rotary dial, a new Alcantara wrapped flat-bottom steering wheel. We’ll find a 12-inch Uconnect touchscreen infotainment system and some new control buttons in the cabin, as well as a TRX logo in the centre and other distinctions.
Outside, the new TRX model got an all-new hood with a sizeable front scoop and heat extractors, a “6.2 Supercharged” badging, a unique grille design with a new RAM emblem; three marker lights inside the hood scoop required by federal for the TRX’s extra width.
Besides, it comes with wider fenders and fresh fender flare design, new vents, the headlights we saw on the 2020 Ram 1500 Limited Black models. The manufacturer extended a unique front bumper to fit the additional width of the vehicle.
Its all-new LED third brake light probably contains a rear mount camera for the bed. The TRX can boast the aggressive 18-inch ‘snowflake-style’ wheels with off-road rubber, different exhaust tips.
Widened box sides with additional vents beside the taillights give the rear end an exclusive look.
