General Motors and Ford are the old, staid schoolmarms of Southeast Michigan’s automobile manufacturing scene. The Rebel TRX Concept is a high-performance off-roader with a supercharged 6.2-liter Hemi V8 that’s capable of traveling at speeds of up to 100 miles per hour on rough terrain.
The latest 2017 Raptor is shaping up to be a brute in its own right. Gone is the 6.2-liter V8, which has been replaced with a modern twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6.
Despite having a much smaller engine than its predecessor, the upcoming Raptor boasts better performance at 450 horsepower and 510 pound feet of torque – up from the V8’s output of 411 horsepower and 434 pound feet of torque.
The Rebel TRX concept’s design is the perfect combination of speed and looks, which makes it hard to believe that Ram built the concept in just three months, according to an engineer. A higher-up within FCA sent in the demand, and the Ram team obliged with a fully functioning prototype.
