The 2018 Ram Rebel Rivals The F-150 Raptor
The 2018 Ram Rebel is Ram’s answer to the new Ford F-150 Raptor and it definitely looks like a strong competitor. The platform starts out as the body and frame of the Ram 1500 but with more extensive durability upgrades. As for the engine, it will come with a supercharged and intercooled 6.2 liter Hemi V8, better known as the Hellcat engine. It comes with an eight-speed automatic transmission and is all-wheel drive.
The Rebel TRX concept was revealed last year with a 575 HP engine but as with many concepts, the power output can change dramatically once it reaches production. I imagine with the 6.2 liter Hemi V8, a lot of power can be expected under the hood of the new Rebel. It goes on sale at the end of this year at a starting price of $55,000 according to Car and Driver. What do you think about it?
