2021 Ram Rebel TRX to be for Sale in 2022? | Toronto, Mississauga
Fortune Telling for Trucks
At this point 2022 seems worlds away, but there is something almost mystical on the horizon behind the gates of the Ram factory. Yes indeed the future looks good! You don’t even need a crystal ball to look into the future and get a glimpse of this particular vehicle that is cooking up there. They just used a poster! Ram was nice enough to fire our imagination by facilitating promotional artwork for its Drive for Design contest and what a way to whip up the enthusiasts. Now purveyors of fine pick up trucks have a visual when they daydream about strolling into their local Chrysler dealership in Toronto, Oakville, Mississauga, Burlington, Brampton, Barrie and Peel, to get a first magical glance of the 2021 Ram Rebel TRX when the time is upon us.
There is a lot of guesswork when it comes to speculation about new editions of vehicles and sometimes the details are cloudy. However where the 2021 Ram Rebel TRX is concerned things are starting to get less hazy, if not more tantalizing. The pick up truck industry has had its share of amazing new contenders but this one is the one that had gotten many tongues wagging and in this case many artists producing images of prospective trucks.
In this image the artist has quite captured the Ram spirit. Just looking at it I can feel the power and momentum being expressed as well as the promise. Additionally I dig the eye pleasing chosen colour scheme, well done. The truck they are making ready for in the virtual war of the pick up trucks is predicted to take this tussle to a new level, if they play their cards right. For decades Ford has made a sturdy home for itself in the performance pick up truck industry with the impressive Ford-150 Raptor, which Ram could shake up a bit, here’s hoping!
The knowledge that Ram is planning on that is not new in itself. In 2018 the Fiat Chrysler put its 2021 Ram Rebel TRX concept into production. A report from Allpar dropped some tantalizing tid-bits on this new pick up. Their sources have informed them that the production pickup will not be designed using the 575 horsepower like the Rebel TRX concept, oh dear no. With the new 2021 Ram Rebel TRX prepare to be amazed and astonished with the expected 700 hp this beast will burn.
The Ram team have not specifically commented on the report of these details but there is certain logic to it that is no illusion. For example FCA's coveted supercharged 6.2-litre V8 engine has made at the very least 707hp. So, when we are speculating about the 2021 Ram Rebel TRX just think, why would they fix something that is clearly not broken? The same sources also mentioned that the eight-speed automatic will be powering a "heavy-duty" four-wheel-drive system. All things considered I think we will be looking at a pretty phenomenal vehicle.
The Rebel TRX concept seemed to be pretty much production-ready, so it is a reasonable expectation for the 2021 Ram Rebel to harken the same concept. In essence the concrete details may still be shrouded in mystery but FCA has teased us by promoting the pick up through the Drive for Design contest. It is a contest that is challenging American high school students grade 10 through 12, to create images of a future Ram truck. The submission deadline is May 1, 2020 for any young, budding car enthusiast artists to join.
Three of those students will be selected as winners and certainly hit the jackpot. Prizes include an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour and mentoring time with leading designers at the FCA Design studios, as well as a scholarship to attend College for Creative Studios Summer Experience Transportation Design program. They even offer an opportunity to serve as a Junior Judge at the prestigious EyesOn Design Car Show. Lucky stiffs! Not only are the folks at FCA wanting to stir up excitement around the launch of the 2021 Ram Rebel TRX they also are able to create some solid speculation around the design of the vehicle.
The educated guesses made about the exterior have been made as the truck in this poster looks to have incredibly similar features to the TRX. Allpar's sources also said the final design will be very much like the promotional drawing. This begs the question, what about the interior? A performance pick up truck is supposedly packed with every single luxury, technological as well a literal comfort. This would include the 12-inch Uconnect infotainment screen and system.
This means not only will this power player be the truck of the future adventurists but it will have along with it all the modern conveniences of the Uconnect software. This enables the driver to access modern connective tools, entertainment and navigation functions on the touch screen or centre stack. Each brand comes with specific graphics and functions but the core system is the same in every version of the Uconnect technology. Meaning it will always be straight-forward, relatively easy to use and look great. This makes the software one of the favourite infotainments systems on the market according to Digital Trends website.
At this juncture it is only foreseeable that the Ram TRX debut will not happen for a while, as the Fiat Chrysler team announced in 2018 that there was a five-year plan of which this vehicle was a part. The only thing we can know for sure is that the intelligence we do have indicates it will be a 2022 release, so we are hoping that we will see this miracle occur sometime next year. Unless you have a crystal ball to get a better estimate than that, a magic wand to speed up the process or any other tricks up your sleeves we may all just have to sit back for a spell and wait for things to happen. Until then you may have to go back to pulling rabbits out of hats and waiting to see the 2021 Ram Rebel TRX materialize in its own good time.
