We have seen 2021 Ram TRX prototypes before, but it was always difficult to judge its size when it’s by itself. Now, we get very high resolution images of the Ram Rebel TRX testing in the wild and parked next to a Dodge Durango. The three-row Durango looks simply tiny next to the TRX prototype. Wait, is that a Hellcat-powered Durango prototype?
Huge thanks to Shawn Slyter for sending these images to us. These prototypes were spied at the gas station near the Valley of Fire in Nevada, just north of Las Vegas.
2021 Ram TRX
While we know very little official information about the upcoming Ram TRX off-road truck, all information points to a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 that will power this beast. The truck is meant to go directly up against the Ford Raptor. The TRX is expected to be riding on 35-inch tall tires. This prototype’s tires appear to be used up. We have driven off-road through the Valley of Fire several times, and we can recognize the desert dust you see on the truck. This section of the desert is very rocky in places, and if your truck’s suspension and tires are not up to the task – this would be a very unforgiving and punishing driving experience. It’s great to see that Ram and FCA appear to be beating on these new vehicles in the real world.
There is also unofficial information that the Dodge Durango is also getting the same supercharged 6.2-liter Hellcat V8. Could the tall hood and new wheels on this Durango prototype mean that this is a rumored Hellcat Durango? Let’s hope this is the case, as the current Durango SRT (with a 6.4-liter V8) is already a great performance family SUV.
Here is everything else we know about the Ram Rebel TRX with different driving modes and launch mode.
