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.
