2017 Dodge Ram Rebel TRX concept

Part of the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles manufacturer Ram pickups introduced the concept Rebel TRX. While the car is made in a single copy and has the status of a prototype, but we can assume that the company is considering the possibility of release such a machine for competition with the Ford F-150 Raptor.

The concept received a 575-horsepower 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine, which is mated to an 8-speed “automatic”. Most likely, it is a derated engine from the Dodge Charger / Challenger SRT Hellcat.

Due to the significant increase in power, the truck received a refined suspension and running gear. 2017 Ram Rebel TRX has Rear Axle Dynatrac Pro 60 with electronically-controlled limited slip differential, universal joints were also enhanced.

Suspension range is increased by 40%, the nominal tire replaced by a 37-inch – for the sake of such tires the arches had to be expanded. As a result, the pickup clearance reaches to 13 inches. The car also received a shock with remote reservoir and 6-piston brakes in front and rear.

The seats are equipped with 6-point belts,  there are two spare wheels, tool kit, and pinion jack is placed on the loading platform.

The performance data of the truck has not reported.

2017 Dodge Ram interior

The interior has seen some restyling also; cloth and vinyl materials have been used, the vinyl being embossed to resemble the pattern of a tire. The black color scheme has hints of red accents and panelling, and there are silver colored components throughout the cabin. The steering wheel is heated and leather wrapped and there is a particularly useful device holder built-in (which will hold anything up to a tablet size).
