The latest 2022 Ram Rebel TRX has been just caught testing undisguised. From the first images, we can see that the upcoming Ford Raptor’s killer is wearing the new Ram’s design language. Generally, the upcoming Rebel TRX is a half-ton pickup that is based on the famous Ram 1500 model.
This model has an excellent proportion and even better design than the mentioned model. Also, some mechanical changes are happening and we can expect few engine options under its hood. According to many gossips, the latest TRX will arrive next year as the 2022YM.
2022 Ram Rebel TRX Design Changes
As we mentioned, the forthcoming 2022 Ram Rebel TRX has been spied testing on the streets of Washington and is wearing a new design language. The same design is also present on the latest Ram 1500.
Newest spy shots reveal a lot of details. At first glance, this truck comes with a beefed-up frame that gives to this pickup a more rugged design. Front dominates with a larger and bolder grille that looks unique. Interestingly, this time manufacturer used almost the same standard LED headlamps and LED taillights as on the Ram 1500.
Plenty of Rich-Looking Materials are Present
Inside, the new 2022 Ram Rebel TRX will offer high comfort. Generally, the latest half-ton pickup includes plenty of rich-looking materials and sportier treatments than the Ram 1500. This model also offers more carbon-fibre accents and extra bolstering on the front seats.
The regular Ram Rebel “Quad” cab comes standard with a horizontal 8.4-inch touchscreen. However, one can get an optional bigger 12.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system that will undoubtedly support Apple CarPlay, Android Auto. Besides, expect plenty of optional features that will include a more powerful Harman Kardon sound system and better driver-assistance technology. Like the Ram 1500, the TRX model comes standard with adaptive cruise control, automated emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, lane-keeping assist, and more.
Under the Hood
The new 2022 Ram Rebel is the pickup truck that will be available with a few engine options. The first engine that is also present on the concept model uses Hellcat 6.2-liter supercharged V-8 that delivers 575 horsepower. The next one is naturally aspirated 7.0-liter V-8 powertrain that will make 525 hp. The other possibility is a Hellcat that produces 707 hp. All models will be equipped with all four wheels via an 8-speed automatic transmission.
The last rumor is that Blue Oval will use the same engine as in Mustang Shelby GT500. As you probably know, this powertrain consists of a 5.2-liter supercharged V-8 that could potentially deliver up to 760 hp. If this rumor is accurate, this model might become the first pickup that can rival the Raptor model.
When the 2022 RAM Rebel TRX Is Going Into Production?
The latest 2022 Ram Rebel TRX is the pickup truck that will rival the famous Raptor model. This model is spied testing recently and is based on the previous generation of Ram’s 1500.
The base variant of the Rebel TRX will start at $45,000, while the top-tier version would go past the $55,000 mark. In the same class are pickups like Ford Ranger Raptor and Cadillac Escalade EXT. So, expect a tough battle between them.
