The 2021 Ram Rebel TRX Is All Set For a 2020 Summer Launch
Ram has crashed Ford’s party big time. Ford was all set to unveil the fourteenth generation of the F-150, which is arguably the biggest launch of the year when Ram decided to drop a teaser of the upcoming Ram Rebel TRX just hours before the F-150’s debut.
The Rebel TRX goes up against the F-150 Raptor, so this strategic timing was purely evil. What a war this is turning out to be!
The Best Pickup Trucks for 2020
There’s no denying that pickup trucks are America’s favorite vehicles. Ford F-Series has consistently topped the sales charts for 42 consecutive years now. There are a lot of other automakers with such offerings as well. The segment is highly competitive and you can get confused with what to pick. There is a different variant or a different model altogether in every $1,000 bracket. To help you with this dilemma, we’ve compiled a list of 10 best pickup trucks, ranging from midsize trucks, to full-size, and to heavy-duty ones.
The Ram Rebel TRX Could Have Adjustable Suspension and Steering
Ram is not able to contain the buzz surrounding the 2021 Ram Rebel TRX as more information comes to light. As per Allpar.com’s latest report, The Rebel TRX will most likely come equipped with adjustable steering and suspension systems like the Hellcat and Trackhawk models. A drive selector could also make its way in here. It seems like we can expect a lot of parts from other fancy FCA products to feature in the upcoming Rebel TRX.
Ram to Build a Body-on-Frame Midsize Truck; Will be Built at Toledo Jeep Plant
Ram has been serving customers with a big appetite and big pockets. Post discontinuation of the Dakota, the smallest pickup truck in its lineup has been the Ram 1500. Given how the market trend has been changing lately, it is essential for Ram to slot a truck at entry-level to compete against the Ford Ranger and Chevy Colorado and, after a 7-year exile, they have exactly done that. On Friday, FCA announced that a new truck will be entering the lineup below the 1500 by 2022.
2019 Ram 1500 Off-Road Edition by GME
German Motors & Engineering has released a tuning package for the Ram 1500, called the “Off-Road Edition.” The package gives the American pickup truck a comprehensive overhaul, covering the exterior, engine, and suspension. GME’s objective is to give the RAM 1500 the kind of off-road versatility you normally don’t see in a car in Germany. To that extent, the tuner did as good a job as you’d expect from a company that knows what it’s doing.
2017 Ram 1200 Truck
Ram has launched a new metric-ton pickup slotted for sales in the Middle East market. It’s called the Ram 1200 and its debut took place in Dubai among an audience of fleet buyers, distributors, and regional media members. This mid-size pickup joins the full-size Ram 1500 to round out the brand’s presence in the region.
Ram was fairly quiet on the details, but we do know several key points. The truck will be offered in three trim level, in regular and crew cab versions, powered a gasoline or turbodiesel option, with the choice of RWD or 4WD, and the option of a manual or automatic transmission. Ram never mentioned, however, the pickup is basically a re-badged Mitsubishi Triton L200.
This isn’t the fist badge-engineered L200 we’ve seen come from Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. The Fiat Fullback currently on sale in Europe is a direct clone of the Mitsu. Unlike the Ram 1200, the Fullback is aimed at a more domesticated buying audience. The Ram is built for fleet and commercial work.
Despite not having the full information, we’d bet big money Ram will never bring the 1200 to the U.S. It simply isn’t built to pass U.S. crash testing and emissions regulations, let alone designed to compete in the increasingly competitive mid-size truck segment. Nevertheless, let’s have a look at the Ram 1200.

By now you’ve probably read how the 2017 Ford Super Duty was crowned the Truck of Texas and that the 2017 Nissan Armada won the SUV of Texas. But the Super Duty and Armada were far from the only winners at this year’s Truck Rodeo put on by the Texas Auto Writers Association.
