The Hellcat-Powered Ram Rebel TRX Will Reportedly Have Over 700 HP

Ram first showed off its Hellcat-powered Rebel TRX concept (shown above) all the way back in 2016. Then, in 2018, Fiat Chrysler said in a five-year presentation plan the supercharged V-8 pickup was confirmed for production. But we haven’t anything about the truck from the company since. Now, thanks to this new report, we know a bit more.

Allpar, citing unnamed insider sources, reports the Rebel TRX will have over 700 horsepower, just like every other production FCA product that uses the 6.2-liter supercharged Hellcat engine. This is notable because while the concept used the same engine, it was detuned to just 575 hp. Allpar says power will travel to all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission and a heavy-duty four-wheel-drive system.

Allpar also reports that, contrary to some reports the truck would have a more tame exterior, the production TRX will share many of its design with the original concept. That means big, widened fenders, a rugged fascia, and plenty of off-road goodies. Inside, Allpar says the TRX will get FCA’s new 12-inch touch screen infotainment system, along with a feature-heavy cabin as standard.

Ram hasn’t made any details on the Rebel TRX official just yet, so we won’t know for sure what the truck will be packing until then. Either way, it’s hard not to be excited about a factory-built Hellcat-powered pickup.
