Ram Rebel TRX concept, 2016 State Fair of TexasEnlarge Photo
Last week Ram took the wraps off the Rebel TRX concept in Texas. While that might sound like some member of the Rebel family, it's much more.
Powered by a supercharged 6.2-liter Hemi V-8, the truck is said to be capable of hitting 100 mph—on pretty much any surface. How is that possible you ask? A combination of 575 horsepower, chunky 37-inch tires, 13-in of wheel travel, beefed up suspension, and massive six-piston brakes in front and back. That's how.
Of course, this would make a terrific challenger to the new 2017 Ford Motor Company [NYSE:F] F-150 Raptor which is about to hit the market.
Jim Morrison, head of Ram in the U.S., told us that for now it's just a concept, and that the automaker would consider a production version in the future.
Based on how popular the Raptor has been for Ford, and the Hellcats have been for FCA, it almost seems like a no-brainer.
And that brings us to the topic of our latest Twitter poll. We ask you, should Ram put the Hellcat-powered Rebel TRX concept into production? Vote below.
