2021 Ram Rebel TRX - Everything You Need to Know

2021 Ram Rebel TRX - Everything You Need to Know

The 2021 Rebel TRX will come with concept-like exterior, premium interior, and one Hell(cat) of an engine

Update 8/17/2020: The 2021 Ram Rebel TRX has made it’s debut. We’re busy updating this article and our full review, but head on over to our quick facts and photo gallery to learn more about it!

The Ram Rebel is one of the sportiest trucks on the market today. It’s not just the tuners, but also the automakers building powerful and fast monsters right out of the factory. Dodge can be credited with this trend when they launched the Dodge Ram SRT-10 more than 15 years back. This truck was powered by the same V-10 found in the Dodge Viper. However, the market was not mature enough to handle it, thus sending it off the production line within three years of its inception.

Fast forward to 2016 and Dodge is Now Ram, and it revealed a concept truck called the Ram Rebel TRX. In 2018, the company said the concept was given a green signal by the corporate overlords and they will be building it. Since then, enthusiasts have been in a tizzy as to what to expect out of this beast. The only thing confirmed so far is that it will be powered by one Hell(cat) of an engine that will be driven by over 700 horses. Is there anything else? Well, here’s a list of all the things you need to know about the upcoming 2020 Ram Rebel TRX, thanks to Mopar Insiders and Allpar.

A New Lexus Trademark Hints At A New EV With an Unmentionable Body Style

A New Lexus Trademark Hints At A New EV With an Unmentionable Body Style

Lexus Could Be Building a New EV, and It Might Bring an All-New Body Style Into the Company’s Lineup

Remember the Lexus LF-30 Concept that was revealed back in 2019? It was a futuristic concept with extreme styling and what you might expect from Lexus some 30-40 years from now. Even the cabin gave off the aura of a spaceship, so it was pretty clear that it wouldn’t enter production anytime soon. However, a new trademark filed by Lexus in the U.S., Europe, and Australia for the RZ 450e name, could hint that at least some of its DNA is about to head into production. Obviously, the “e” in the name means it will be an EV – one of the many that the company will offer by 2025 – but what kind of vehicle will it be?

The Lucid Air Might Offer More Than 500 Miles Of Range

The Lucid Air Might Offer More Than 500 Miles Of Range

We’re Not Going to Call it a Record Yet, But The Lucid Air Could Be The First EV With 500+ Miles of Range

It hasn’t been long since we reported that the Lucid Air might beat out the best Tesla Model S with up to 442 miles of range. Considering that the Air starts out at just $60,000 this could put it in a position to effectively dethrone the Tesla Model S. Now, however, a new report from Ars Technica claims that independent testing has confirmed an estimated range of more than 500 miles on a single charge. If this report is true, and the EPA agrees, the Lucid Air could become the first production EV to cross that threshold. How likely is it that the EPA will give the air a similar rating? Well, the chances might actually be pretty good.

There's a Good Chance That This Land Rover Defender Is Testing a New V-8

There’s a Good Chance That This Land Rover Defender Is Testing a New V-8

The Land Rover Defender could borrow a twin-turbo V-8 engine from BMW

The iconic Land Rover Defender returned in 2019 after a three-year hiatus. It continues to be a rugged-style, boxy SUV with solid off-road capability, but it’s now infused with state-of-the-art technology and premium features. Land Rover offers a range of turbocharged gasoline and diesel engines, including a mild hybrid drivetrain, but a V-8 engine is still missing. That’s about to change though, as our paparazzi just spotted a new prototype that seems to feature such a powertrain.

Everything You Need to Know About the 2022 Ford Bronco Raptor

Everything You Need to Know About the 2022 Ford Bronco Raptor

From a V-8 engine to Baja-Bronco like treatment; this is everything you can expect from the Ford Bronco Raptor

The 2021 Ford Bronco has been the talk of the town since it was unveiled. The off-roader was, arguably, the most anticipated model this year, and it would be fair to say that it didn’t disappoint. But we enthusiasts are a greedy bunch and still want a Raptor version of the Bronco. That’s like asking for an off-road version of an off-roader! The Bronco comes with most of the stuff needed, but a Raptor trim could push things beyond the boundaries. Also, the Bronco has taken part in Baja 1000 before it was reincarnated, so that makes having a Raptor version even more imperative, and it could further cement the new off-roader’s place in the segment.

Next-Gen Frontier: If You Didn't Like Nissan DNA in Your Mercedes, Maybe You'll Like Mercedes DNA in Your Nissan

Next-Gen Frontier: If You Didn’t Like Nissan DNA in Your Mercedes, Maybe You’ll Like Mercedes DNA in Your Nissan

The next-generation Nissan Frontier won’t be a full redesign

In 2017 Mecedes-Benz decided to enter the pickup truck market with the X-Class. However, the X-Class wasn’t a true Mercedes under the shell, but a modified third-generation Nissan Frontier, also known as the Navara in other markets. Mercedes’ concept was to offer a more premium truck in terms of looks and equipment, but it seems that it didn’t go really well. After only two years on the market, the X-Class was discontinued. But a new report claims that the German truck will actually live on as Nissan wants to use the modifications that Mercedes made to the platform on the next-generation Frontier.

FCA’s New ’Carbide" Trademark Hints At a More Hardcore Wrangler or Ram 1500

Will FCA use this name for the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 Concept?

The new Ford Bronco might be garnering all the attention right now, but FCA is working on something quietly in the backdrop. According to Muscle Cars and Trucks, FCA filed for a trademark for the ‘Carbide’ nameplate. The trademark was filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on July 1. FCA as a whole is coming with multiple products, but given the timing and the Bronco’s onslaught on Jeep Wrangler, it could probably be for the production version of the recently-announced Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 Concept.

Maserati's “All-New” MC20-Bound Nettuno V-6 Engine Is Shrouded in Lies and Deceit

Maserati’s “All-New” MC20-Bound Nettuno V-6 Engine Is Shrouded in Lies and Deceit

It looks like there’s some Ferrari and Alfa Romeo DNA in Maserati’s Nettuno engine after all

For years, Maserati has been buying engines from Ferrari to power its cars. It wasn’t a bad arrangement at all, really, but that’s also why the recent news that it was building its own all-new engine – known as the Nettuno V-6 – in house was such a big deal. It’s finally starting to look like Maserati is staking its own independence from Maranello, but now, it looks like the Nettuno engine isn’t as all-new as Maserati led us all to believe.

New Leaks Give Us an Incredible Look at the Ram Rebel TRX’s Interior and Engine Bay

This time, we get a peek under the hood and inside the cabin

The 2021 Ram Rebel TRX has kept truck enthusiasts at the edge of their seats. With every leak that’s surfaced on the internet, the TRX just seems to look better every time. In all fairness, quite a bit is already known about the truck and it’s only a matter of time before we start spotting the production-version TRXs with minimum camouflage. For now, TFLoffroad has received a few images from an anonymous source, this time showing the cabin as well as the stuff under the hood. Are we excited? Hell yeah!

The Ford F-150 PHEV Will Have Enough Electric Range to Get You Down the Driveway

The Ford F-150 PHEV Will Have Enough Electric Range to Get You Down the Driveway

Plug it in for 10 miles of range? This is the truck equivalent of an iPhone 6!

Since the electric F-150 is still some time away, the focus has been on the plug-in hybrid version of the truck lately. What made this news even interesting was that the hybrid version would be based on the 3.5-liter, V-6 EcoBoost engine. Basically, a lot of hopes were pinned on this hybrid mill considering it would serve as a bridge between the internal combustion engine range to a pure electric truck and would give us an idea of what to expect.

Well, as it turns out, Ford just pulled one over on us. According to Car And Driver, the PHEV F-150 will run only 10 miles on electric electric before switching back to gas. So much for all the buzz surrounding the mill.

Ford is Dropping the SuperCab Configuration for the Next-Gen F-150 Raptor

Ford is Dropping the SuperCab Configuration for the Next-Gen F-150 Raptor

A VIN decoder for the new F-150 says so

The 2021 F-150’s engine options were recently leaked and we have a basic idea of what drivetrains to expect from the upcoming model.

The new F-150 was also spotted with the camouflage on. However, we had not heard anything about the F-150 Raptor. Now that the 2021 Ford F-150 is on the horizon, it only makes sense to talk about the Raptor’s future as well. Well, it looks like Ford will be dropping the F-150 Raptor SuperCab from the lineup. According to a VIN decoder, the two-door version of the off-roader will be retired with the current model itself and Ford will sell the Raptor SuperCrew only. Is it a good idea?

It’s going to have quite a leg up on it’s closest younger brother

It hasn’t even been a week since the most recent round of spy shots for the 2020 Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series started circulating the net. So far, we’ve learned precious little about the car that will be the last entry to the first-gen AMG GT and serve as the flagship model outside of the bonkers Project One Hypercar. All that has changed, though, thanks to a new report from Double Apex, a South African magazine that claims the AMG GT Black Series will have more than 700 horsepower.

A replacement for the Dodge Challenger built on an Alfa Romeo platform

Rumors about a modern Barracuda have been flying around since 2007. That’s 13 years as of 2020 and many of us have lost hope that a revival of the iconic Cuda will happen.

However, it seems that the Barracuda may indeed return for the 2021 model years as a replacement for the Dodge Challenger. And it will do so under the Dodge brand since the Plymouth marque was discontinued back in 2001. Official details about the 2021 Barracuda are still scant, but we gathered all the information there is about the modern incarnation of this muscle car legend.

Did We Just Catch a McLaren GT Hybrid in the Wild?

This is a very interesting test mule

The McLaren GT was introduced in 2019, and we know for sure that the mule we see here is, in fact, a McLaren GT. Be that as it may, it was caught in a residential neighborhood in France by a friend of Topspeed, and it certainly raises a few questions. First, why is there a camouflaged McLaren GT cruising around France? Second, why was it parked outside a residential area? Third, why do the wheels have “Dyn Wheel” written all over them? Well, we think that McLaren might be testing its new V-6 hybrid drivetrain.

A Mazda RX-9 Without a Rotary Engine? It Could Happen

A Mazda RX-9 Without a Rotary Engine? It Could Happen

Sometimes, you have to take the good with the bad, it seems

It seems like every 6 months or so, a new rumor about the Mazda RX-9 or the revival of Mazda’s famous and iconic rotary engine comes to life. Kicking off a new decade comes a rumor that says a Mazda RX-9 is, in fact, happening, but it comes with a major caveat – it won’t feature a rotary engine. Word has it that the RZ-9 will feature Mazda’s new RWD platform and inline-six instead, the same setup that was rumored to underpin the next-gen Mazda 6 as well as Toyota’s next-gen Land Cruiser and 4 Runner. This is, as of now, just a rumor with zero confirmation from any credible sources, but it does beg the question: Is a Mazda RX really an RX if it doesn’t feature a rotary engine?

Could the Jaguar Vision Gran Turismo Signal Jaguar’s Return To The Supercar Arena?

Jaguar teased us a few years ago with the C-X75 but now it could actually create a sucessor to the XJ220 that might be made with help from an unexpected ally

It’s been 25 years since Jaguar discontinued its last supercar, the great XJ220 amid poor sales at a time when people really weren’t eager to buy $1 million mid-engined monsters. Nowadays, there are more millionaires than ever in the world and Jaguar, while focusing on expanding its EV lineup, could be planning a shock return to the world of high-performance supercars with something inspired by the jaw-dropping and all-electric Vision Gran Turismo presented late last month. This may well become the halo car for a new era of the Leaping Cat.

New Rendering Shows What the Ferrari Purosangue Would Look Like With Lots of Roma Styling

Can you feel the DBX-like vibe?

Ferrari’s first SUV is happening whether we like it or not. Maranello is poised to give the Urus a run for its money with a high-riding vehicle, the so-called Purosangue. Little is known about Ferrari’s first (and hopefully last) attempt to attract SUV-loving clients, which means pixel manipulators around the world have had a lot of leeway in coming up with their vision on what the Purosangue could look like.

Of that bunch, Laco Design came forward a pair of renderings that take a stab at guessing a potential design avenue Ferrari might or might not take with the Purosangue, opting to bake in a handful of styling cues seen on Ferrari’s stunningly elegant 2020 Roma supercar.
