The Ram truck that can do more than 160kph off-road – in pictures

The Rebel TRX concept has 575hp and massive 37-inch tyres

Looking for a quicker way to get to work? How about hitting more than 160kph off-road with the newly revealed Ram Rebel TRX concept truck?

With a supercharged 6.2-litre V8 engine, the 575hp pick-up promises “extreme” performance, as well as “severe-duty” wheel axles to handle the rigours of going off-road at such speeds.

The concept takes design cues from the existing Power Wagon and Rebel trucks, although that horsepower figure is almost 200hp up on the regular Rebel.

Massive 37-inch tyres help to give significant ground clearance, with a “baja” driving mode for the fastest off-roading – or, as its makers put it, “the ability to clear miles of desert in the blink of an eye”.

Sadly, you won’t be able to get behind the wheel just yet, because it remains just a concept vehicle for now – but there are plans for the truck to be put into production in the Middle East by 2022.
