Right now, the Ford Raptor is the only truck on the market that is designed for high-speed running in the desert, but it might not be for long. Ram has unveiled a very cool Raptor fighter in the form of a concept truck called the Rebel TRX. Ram says that the truck is a 100mph off-road beast and it packs the supercharged 6.2L Hemi V8 heart of the Hellcat.
That V8 is mated to a TorqueFlight 8-speed automatic transmission, 4×4 performance system, and paddle shifters. The front and rear axles of the concept are severe-duty parts meant to handle horsepower and off-road use.
The TRX Concept has over 13-inchs of wheel travel at all four corners. Ram uses front and rear bypass performance shocks for improved response and damping. The truck also gets a unique Ram grille, steel bumpers, and shares some design cues with the Power Wagon and Rebel. The truck is 6-inches wider than the standard Ram 1500 and has 37-inch tires on it. The decision to build the concept hasn’t been made yet, but we are very much hoping it happens.
