2021 Dodge Ram Rebel TRX Specs Release Date – The concept of the Ram Rebel TRX 2021 is based on a supercharged, 6.2-liter, 575 hp V8, making it the most powerful half-ton truck ever built by Ram (or Dodge). If 6.2 liters and a compressor seem familiar to you, it is a version of the Hellcat engine, mounted at 707 hp and optimized for high-speed off-road driving. The transmission is automatic eight-speed TorqueFlite 8HP70.
It’s not just about making a battered ram: the builder’s design studio has redefined the all-terrain truck’s style for traveling over rough terrain at speeds over 100mph. This means that design elements have been created with a function in mind. Composite wheel collars were added to increase suspension travel and tire size, while the calender was redesigned to allow more airflow to the compressor. The hood itself is based on the Ram Heavy Duty model also a necessity considering the material under the hood. LED fog lights were also added to help the truck navigate the inconspicuous environments, while oversized tow hooks were incorporated into the powder-coated steel front bumper.
Although the structure of the 2021 Dodge Ram Rebel TRX concept high-strength steel frame is almost identical to that of a Ram 1500, the suspension is another story. Ram increased suspension travel by 40% from 9 to 13 inches at the rear, and used custom upper and lower swingarms. Adjustable spring shocks with internal bypass separate the front load, while the rear suspension features a premium coil spring rear suspension system with material borrowed from the fastest desert racing trucks.
2021 Dodge Ram Rebel TRX Release Date
In a recent presentation, FCA said the TRX would be produced “by 2022”, but industry observers expect the truck to land well before that time, probably between the beginning and the middle of 2020, as a 2021 model. This means that we will likely see the production version debuting in the metal by the end of 2019, perhaps at the LA auto show, or in early 2020 after Ram’s debut Heavy Duty at the Detroit Auto Show in 2019. Take this moment with some local spring salt, but not too much salt: Ram can not afford to wait longer than 2020 to start selling them, since the concept debuted in 2016 on a previous generation model.
