The new generation of the famous full-size pickup truck has been on the market since recently and it looks like the company made a real deal with this one. It offers excellent performances, a high level of comfort and amazing overall quality. Still, that doesn’t mean FCA will stop on this. The Ram 1500 has always been a true money-maker to this company. So, one of the best ways to improve sales numbers is to offer a performance version. There are some of them already in the company’s offer, but none of them is a true rival to the undisputed Ford F-150 Raptor. Therefore, rumors about 2021 Ram Rebel TR are getting louder and louder. Expectations for this model are huge.
Of course, one of the first thing that comes to mind about the 2021 Ram Rebel TR is the engine. We’ve been getting various kinds of reports in the past few months and many of them were suggesting a new 7.0-liter V8 engine, codenamed Banshee, after the famous fighter plane. This unit would come as a replacement for the famous Apache engine, which measures 6.4 liters in displacement. The new unit should feature a max output of around 525 hp and 535 lb-ft of torque, roughly.
On the other side, many reports claim that this won’t happen. They suggest that the 2021 Ram Rebel TR would go even more extreme and come with a Supercharged 6.2-liter Hellcat engine. We are not talking about any other version but the one that delivers monstrous 707 hp.
Other than a new engine, this version should come with numerous other updates. Since we are talking about an off-road performance truck, we can expect a fine number of chassis upgrades as well. Of course, the first thing that comes to mind is suspension, which should be completely adapted to the off-road drive. This means a lot of new components, as well as higher ground clearance and more travel. Count on new brakes, new wheels with off-road tires and chassis reinforcements. Visually, we should also see several details that will emphasize its performance character, though details are still unknown.
According to the latest reports, the new model should arrive sometime in the next year, as the 2021 Ram Rebel TR. Details about the price are still unknown.
