After the last year’s launch, we are pretty sure that RAM’s new beast will continue in the same way. Equipped with the monstrous Hellcat engine, this is the fastest pickup truck you can get on the market. However, power isn’t the only great thing about this truck. It also comes with a lot of other mechanical upgrades compared to the standard model, particularly in terms of off-road hardware. Of course, there are numerous exclusive styling details as well. We don’t believe that the 2022 RAM Rebel TRX could come with too many novelties.
Therefore, you may count on the same design approach, which is all about performance. Still, keep in mind that this truck also comes with a pretty impressive list of standard equipment. There is a full load of tech features and one of the possible novelties for the next year is the introduction of a new Trailer Package. More details about this should come soon.
2022 RAM Rebel TRX Design
Despite the monstrous engine power and impressive acceleration, this is still primarily an off-road pickup truck. Therefore, it’s no wonder that you can find loads of upgrades, compared to the standard model. Of course, one of the first things you’ll notice is higher ground clearance. The suspension setup is completely new and allows an impressive 13 inches of travel. The chassis has been reinforced as well, while you can also find a set of massive 35-inch off-road tires.
Furthermore, you get typical off-road hardware, such as skid plates and locking rear differential. Of course, a 4×4 drive is standard. With 11.8 inches of ground clearance, it’s no wonder that this truck can go through 32 inches of water. For excellent stopping performance, there are massive 15-inch front brakes.
Styling and Interior
Of course, such an impressive pickup truck needs a styling that follows its performances. Therefore, it’s no wonder that you can find a lot of exclusive styling details. We’ve already mentioned the wheels, but you may also count on a completely new face, which includes blacked grille and bumper, tow hooks, revised bumper etc. In other parts of the truck, you can find exclusive graphics, tailgate and similar things.
On the inside, this pickup also comes with a couple of nice upgrades and we have no doubt that the 2022 RAM Rebel TRX interior will be pretty much the same. Compared to standard models, you can see differences in terms of carbon fiber trim, flat-bottomed steering wheel, paddle shifter and similar performance features. Also, it’s important to mention that this pickup truck comes fully loaded with features, but we will get on that in a minute.
When it comes to standard equipment, the 2022 RAM Rebel TRX will be similarly equipped to the Big Horn model. Still, there are few upgrades in terms of tech goodies, considering that a 12-inch touch screen and a 10-speaker audio system are also part of the standard equipment. The list of standard features also includes goodies like a power-adjustable driver’s seat, a power-sliding rear window, satellite radio.
Furthermore, you can opt for the TRX Level 1 Equipment Group. This package includes a plethora of features, starting from things like leather upholstery, power-adjustable front seats, heated front seats, and a heated steering wheel. The Level 2 Equipment Group adds even more goodies, such as blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, front and rear parking sensors, a surround-view parking camera system, wireless device charging, ventilated front seats, and heated and ventilated rear seats.
Finally, you can opt for the Launch Edition package, which adds a couple of interesting styling details, as well as things like a head-up display, adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, pedestrian detection, a deployable bed step, a sunroof, and the 19-speaker Harman Kardon audio system.
2022 RAM Rebel TRX Engine
We have finally come to the most interesting part of the 2022 RAM Rebel TRX. Of course, things will remain the same as in the current model, which uses a 6.2-liter Supercharged V8 engine. In this case, it puts out 702 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque, which is enough to move this half-ton pickup truck in less than four seconds. Of course, a 4×4 drive is standard, while the power is sent via an 8-speed automatic transmission.
Besides excellent speed and acceleration, this truck can tow as well. The max towing capacity goes around 8.100 pounds. The max payload capacity goes around 1.310 pounds.
2022 RAM Rebel TRX Release Date and Price
We expect to see 2022 RAM Rebel TRX in a typical time of year, sometime in the last quarter of 2021. When it comes to the price, it should start at around 72.000 dollars. Of course, Ford F-150 is the key competitor, but keep in mind that the next-generation Toyota Tundra TRD Pro is on the way too.
