If FCA US isn't planning to make a production version of its Hellcat-powered Ram Rebel TRX concept ... well, it certainly fooled us.
The Ford F-150 Raptor fighter was an unabashed hit when it debuted at the 2016 State Fair of Texas. It featured FCA's 6.2-liter supercharged Hemi V-8, which produces up to 707 hp in vehicles such as the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat.
Not only does Ram's consumer site, ramtrucks.com, now list the TRX as an "upcoming vehicle" with "Get ready for the off-road king" below its picture, but the website 5thgenrams.com, citing inside sources, says the TRX will boast the full 707 hp, instead of the concept's detuned 575 hp.
The 5thgenrams.com site also cites inside sources who claim that a second potential engine, a naturally aspirated 7.0-liter V-8 called Banshee is under development for a derivative called the Ram 1500 Rebel TR, which it says will generate 520 hp and more than 525 pound-feet of torque.
Lots of evidence here, though a spokesman for FCA US declined to confirm.
