The Rebel TRX variant is destined for off-road adventures, it can tackle the roughest possible terrains at higher speeds. For that reason, some design elements are specially created. For the start, the higher suspension is available.

Steel bumpers and high-strength steel frame are visible at first glance. The overall result is amazing driving experience, a smooth ride, and amazing performances.

2021 Ram 1500 Rebel TRX Comes With A Mighty Powertrain
We already wrote the performance will remain the same. All of the upgrades are visual so the 2021 Ram 1500 Rebel TRX will continue to offer the same engine lineup. While the TR models will offer a 6.2-liter Hemi V8, the TRX variant comes with the 6.2-liter Hellcat powertrain.

However, the V8 Hellcat is the real deal. It can produce up to 707 horsepower which is the engine’s full capacity. Ford Raptor will be easily beaten with those figures. A 700+ hp engine and raised suspension will provide astonishing performances and new pickup will use a TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission.
