Even though the Ram 1500 has always been famed for its astonishing performances and capabilities, the Rebel TRX really stunned the automotive world. This pickup truck left people around the world breathless with more than 700 horsepower and impressive on and off-road performances. Nevertheless, the rival from Blue Oval company cooks a new type of the F-150 Raptor. This model could feature even more power, so there is a reason why Ram prepares an answer. From what we know so far, the light-duty pickup will receive a facelift and big alterations will come to the 2023 Ram Rebel TRX as well.
Even though the executives are still quiet, it is believed that the 2023 Ram Rebel TRX is about to bring a whole group of interesting innovations. Unquestionably, one of the first things that come to mind is new design details. We also count on a more powerful type of the Hellcat engine, as well as some alterations on the drivetrain.
Ram Rebel TRX Hellcat Engine
If we pay attention to the rumors, we would hear that one of the most important upgrades, will be a more powerful version of the engine on offer. The usual TRX puts out a remarkable 702 horsepower and some sources that we are about to see an even more accomplished version, the same way we saw more capable versions of Challenger and Charger Hellcat variants. Currently, it’s still early to talk about numbers it is believed that the new version would get pretty close to 800 horsepower.
The new engine is expected also with an 8-speed ZF-sourced automatic transmission, which is one of the best components in the business right now. Though, we might see some modifications regarding the drivetrain. As already known, the recent model comes usually with four-wheel drive and many fans don’t like the fact that you can’t put all that power into the rear wheels. It is doubtful that the company will compromise with an RWD version of the 2023 Ram Rebel TRX, but we might see a new style selector, which would add rear-wheel drive to the proposal.
2023 Ram Rebel TRX Design
When it comes to the general design, we believe that the 2023 Ram Rebel TRX will accept all the changes that are about to come with the future facelift. In addition to general aesthetical updates, we will see plenty of exclusive details. We guess that a few amendments could be made in this aspect as well. However, we are most certainly sure that most of the things are about to remain the same.
Thus, you may count on an advanced suspension, which comes with Bilstein adaptive dampers and gives higher ground clearance. Also, there are 35-inch all-terrain tires, promoted brakes, improved engine cooling system, skid plates, performance exhaust system, etc. Likewise, you may expect the locking rear differential.
One of the things we like about the current version is that the interior offers a lot of customization choices. For example, basic models come with identical equipment as the standard Rebel. This means that you can count on cloth upholstery and pretty basic color schemes. Still, the cabin looks comfortable and sophisticated.
Nonetheless, you can upgrade this cabin with things like leather-covered surfaces, microsuede, carbon-fiber inserts, and similar things. The Rebel TRX comes entirely in Crew Cab layout, with the short bed. We imagine that the leather-covered surfaces and a mix of micro suede and carbon fiber will stay the same way. Unquestionably, we could also see the more typical gear. It is average with a 12.0-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, navigation, satellite radion, 19-speaker audio system, etc.
2023 Ram Rebel TRX Release Date and Price
We expect that the 2023 Ram Rebel TRX will be on the market in the second half of the year. The current model starts at around 77.500 dollars and we don’t expect a major increase in the next year.
