The company Ram announced the release of the extreme modification of the pickup 1500 under the name TRX. The SUV will appear in the model range of the brand until 2022. The basis of the commercial version of the pickup will be the conceptual Rebel TRX, introduced in 2016.
The most powerful pickup in the history of the American brand will compete with the Ford F-150 Raptor. It will be equipped with a 6.2-liter V8 compressor engine, also known as Hellcat. Such an assembly, installed on the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, produces 717 horsepower and 875 Nm of torque.
By analogy with the Rebel TRX concept, a pickup truck can be equipped with a special exhaust system, reinforced suspension and brakes, as well as aggressive off-road skirts and “toothy” tires.
Besides TRX, within five years Ram will release a heavy pickup truck, and also will present a new medium-sized model. Also, the generation of the cargo compact Promain City will replace.
At a press conference on the development of the product line of brands included in the alliance FCA, also announced the expansion of the Alfa Romeo, Maserati and Jeep lineup. Within five years these manufacturers will mainly have hybrid and electric models.
