Ram 1500 Rebel TRX vs the Ford F-150 Raptor
With a unique combination of off-road ability and speed, the F-150 Raptor has spent several years without peers. However, there is a new kid on the block looking to tame the Ford F-150 Raptor in a Jurassic Battle!
At the 2016 State Fair of Texas, the RAM 1500 Rebel TRX was unveiled and received rave reviews. This vehicle features an unbridled muscular body, highly sophisticated suspension, and delivers never-seen-before Hellcat Power in a half-ton pickup truck. Simply put, the RAM 1500 Rebel TRX combines the serious muscle with unparalleled off-road ability.
With performance and muscle exuding through its skin, the RAM 1500 Rebel TRX outperforms the Ford Raptor at every turn. Continue reading to learn why the Rebel stands victorious in this Jurassic Battle against the Ford F-150 Raptor.
What’s Under the Hood of the Rebel TRX & F-150 Raptor
For several years, the fantastic high-output version of Ford F-150 Raptor’s 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 has been the talk of the town. However, would you rather say “Vee-Six” or “Hemi?” With a staggering 575 horsepower, the RAM 1500 Rebel TRX proudly houses a 6.2-liter supercharged Hemi V8, which makes it the most powerful factory-engineered half-ton pickup ever produced.
The engine is actually detuned from the original 707-HP featured in the Dodge SRT Hellcat Twins (Charger & Challenger). This massive onslaught of power is harnessed with the familiar ZF eight-speed automatic transmission with one-off paddle shifters located on the steering column.
In comparison, the Rebel has enough horsepower to excel to over 100 MPH off-road. Most importantly, it’s over 100 HP above the 450 HP of the 2017 Ford Raptor. The RAM 1500 Rebel TRX is designed with a link-coil rear suspension system only shared with the fastest off-road desert racing trucks. With the available 4×4 Performance Control System, you will have access to five different terrain modes.
Run Wild with the Rebel’s Sophisticated Air Suspension
The RAM 1500 Rebel TRX features an air suspension that bolsters the ride height. At the same time, this iconic vehicle includes an off-road setting for dominating the toughest of trails. The factory air suspension is fully integrated into the infrastructure of the vehicle, which means you’ll never run into shortcomings commonly associated with aftermarket systems.
Not to mention, it’s just outright cool to be able to lower and raise the height of your Rebel at will. Whether you raise it up to make it to a remote campsite or drop it low to cruise through a drive-thru, the Rebel will allow you to run wild wherever life takes you.
Chiseled Look & Muscular Exterior of the RAM 1500 Rebel TRX
In order to accommodate a massive upgrade of power and performance, the body of the Rebel is a full six-inches wider than the regular 1500. It dons an acute hourglass body design, steel bumpers, and an undeniable front grille. The bulging fender flares effectively accommodate its wider track and make the TRX look identical to a pro-style racing truck.
Ram also designed a new hood with enough clearance for the major V8 supercharger resting under the hood. Paying homage to the 1980s, the Rebel includes a bed “sport bar.” The rock rails underneath the doors intelligently incorporate side-exit exhaust pipes. In the end, this truck’s design embodies the aggressiveness you would associate with the truck poised to lock the gate on the Raptor’s Jurassic Park.
