Leaked Video on Ram 1500 Rebel TRX

May 22nd, 2020 by


Is anyone tired of news about the upcoming Ram 1500 Rebel TRX? A little bit of information keeps leaking out every couple of weeks, and we’re all waiting for the big reveal originally intended for this summer. Truck buyers and fans of the TRX will be happy to know that there is no shortage of news when it comes to this monster of a truck. When it comes to leaked images, online consumers should be aware of fake or fraudulent claims, but when it comes to a respected name like TFLTruck, then the leak is legit. In a video uploaded, there’s a good look at what the Ram 1500 Rebel TRX will come equipped with, and an easter egg specifically geared to poke fun at the competitor.

A lot of details about the interior are covered in the TFLTruck video below, most of which is covered in the first three minutes. This includes discussion about the powertrain setup and unique cabin touches that separate this vehicle from the rest of the lineup aside from exterior styling. When it comes to power, the standard powertrain is still expected to be a 6.4-liter HEMI V8 Banshee engine, capable of generating up to 520 horsepower and 525 lb-ft of torque. The video leak, however, shows an engine with the SRT and Hellcat logo embedded – yes, the supercharged 707 hp 6.2-liter V8 engine will be coming with the TRX to back up that roar.

The driver will find some changes to the center console and the way some features now operate. For one, Ram Trucks have been using rotary dial shifter systems for some time now, but the Ram Rebel 1500 TRX brings back the shotgun shift system. Additionally, the TRX comes with a trailer steering system that controls how the trailer turns, depending on the dial. Drivers, and passengers, will also notice that at the bottom of the center console is the image of a person standing next to their truck, followed by a T-REX chasing after a raptor.

Ding ding ding, put those gloves up! That’s some mudslinging for a truck if we ever saw it. It should give the driver and new passengers a good chuckle as a reminder of the new beast in town.

Consumers can also expect a little more of a luxurious feeling throughout the cabin. The leaked video shows us a heavily bolstered front seat with TRX stitching in the seatback. A two-tone leather upholstery covers the seats, making the interior pretty upscale for a pickup truck. Don’t forget, this is a Rebel too. So, consumers should also expect some upgrades and improvements on the suspension system, and the stability and comfort of the ride when going off-road in the 1500 Rebel TRX. That also calls for some larger tires.

The new Ram 1500 Rebel TRX is shaping up to be some pickup truck. Taking jabs at Ford forever burned into Ram history will sure rattle some cages. Join in on the fun when you join the discussion on Aventura Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram social media.
