Unprecedented Power

As stated above, Ram Trucks has powered their Rebel TRX Concept with an awe-inspiring 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI engine. It is the most powerful engine that the company has ever built, and it can deliver up to 575 horsepower. It is linked the TorqueFlite 8HP70 eight-speed automatic transmission, which has received new calibrations to maximize the high-speed off-road drive quality. The 4x4 Performance Control System has a BorgWarner 44-45 transfer case, and there are four different driving modes equipped with the system. Drivers can easily choose between Wet/Snow, Normal, Off-Road, and Baja driving settings.



Unique Engineering

The Rebel TRX Concept has been built with a high-strength steel frame structure, and it utilizes low-torsion attributes that will improve the handling, stability, and durability. The 37-inch tires and increased suspension travel will lead to enhanced ground clearance, which further improves the off-road capabilities for inclement terrains. The vehicle has a best-in-class link coil rear suspension, heavy-duty front and rear axles, and bypass performance shocks for both the front and rear. The custom rear steel bumper has an integrated skid plate as well as tow hooks, which will lead to high towing ratings.




Rugged and Chiseled Design

The new Rebel TRX Concept will receive a number of unique design cues, and it has taken inspiration from both the Rebel and Power Wagon models. The Rebel TRX Concept is instantly eye-catching with its bold "RAM" grille in vibrant black and red. The grille is not only stylish but functional, as it has a scooped design that improves airflow and allows the powerful engine to cool itself. The hood design is based on the taller Ram Heavy Duty model, and the fender has been raised to match the height of the taller hood. The rear has large "RAM" badging in a Matte Black color, and it covers the tailgate.

The interior is boldly designed, yet there are many comfort features that passengers will appreciate while taking on the off-road elements. The seating has suede upholstery with accent mesh cloth inserts that cover the front buckets and rear bench seats. The suede is elegant and comfortable, but it also grips onto clothing for a more secure experience when pushing the Rebel TRX to its full 100 mph capability. Every seat has a six-point harness which will add even more security. The all-weather floor mats from Mopar will minimize slipping for the driver. The electronics found in the Rebel TRX include a seven-inch thin-film transistor that has unique TRX badge graphics and a unique 8.4-inch Uconnect system. The Rebel TRX also has its own custom camera mount that is located on the truck's rearview mirror.
