The Ram unveiled the Hellcat-powered 2017 Ram 1500 Rebel TRX at the State Fair of Texas. It gives serious competition to Ford 150 Raptors, truck, which has dominated that segment of consumer truck market for quite some time now. It is a very competent truck based on the previous Ram 1500 Rebel.

The body of the 2017 Ram 1500 Rebel TRX is eight inches wider than the standard 1500, along with a grille at the front which has been made in a very new style and body design is similar to that of an hourglass, which complements the huge fender wells.The front seats have racing harnesses attached to a harness bar that spans the B-pillars. The tires are 37-inch ones stretched over the 18-inch wheels. The interior is exceptionally good as well. Inside of the truck has leather and carbon fiber and specially designed suede seats that cling to the cloth. There is a paddle shifter present to keep control of the passengers. Overall, the Ram has done its best to come up with the most comfortable possible seating.
It is expected of such a vehicle to have some cooling system because of the power it will have and the terrains it will ride on. The hood and the front fenders of the 2017 Ram 1500 Rebel TRX will have an additional venting system, which will provide breathing for the superchargers and vent out the heat they create. Additionally, it has incorporated side exit exhaust behind the doors.
A big game bar has also been added to the rear of the 2017 Ram 1500 Rebel TRX, which serves two purposes; it will deliver some extra tires along with a LED light bar on the top. The truck also has a plate of the main steel slides and coordinated side-outs for a smoke behind the entryways. All the four seats feature six-point harnesses for safety. The previous Ram 500’s trucks also had the same front axles as this one.
2017 Ram 1500 Rebel TRX – Hemi Engine:
The 2017 Ram 1500 Rebel TRX will be the most powerful factory engineered truck ever to be made, powered by a supercharged 6.2 liter Hemi V8 that makes 575 horsepower. It has a suspension system that is built to withstand all day’s hammering that it can tear the pavements and ride through the roughest terrains at a speed of more than 100 miles per hour. Yes, that’s right. It would serve the huge part of the off roads truck market with its high performance. The truck features more than 13 inches of wheel travel to handle extreme off-road condition at all four corners; this is an increase of more than 40 percent as compared to the previous Ram 1500 pickup. The front and rear bypass performance shocks have been added for improved response and damping.
The engineers say that the engine has been pushed back further on the front shocks for better weight distribution and stability. Off-roaders and those wishing to lift the truck would find it very appealing. The power will be transferred through an 8-speed automatic transmission to all of the four wheels. Moreover, it has an updated version of Ram’s 4×4 performance control system which features Off-road, and Wet/Snow.
