Due to the coronavirus, the official presentation of the high-performance Ram Rebel TRX pickup truck, as well as the three-row performance of the Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV will be postponed.

The American brand Ram confirmed that the “charged” version of the full-size 1500 pickup truck, which will be designated the Rebel TRX, will certainly be presented. However, at the moment we do not know the exact timing of the debut. Everyone expected to see this long-awaited novelty at the Detroit Auto Show in 2020, but the event was canceled due to the coronavirus epidemic, as the US Federal Emergency Management Agency wanted the place where the car dealership usually takes place to become a temporary field hospital for coronavirus infected (COVID- 19) over the next six months.

 Foreign insiders report that we will not see the serial version of the machine for a long time.

The Italian-American concern Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, which includes RAM, planned to show in the near future a three-row version of the Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV, but apparently this debut will have to wait a few more months. At the moment, no one can really confirm when these two cars can debut, but the production of the “charged” Ram 1500 should begin in September this year.

   Ram Rebel TRX will receive a 6.2-liter V8, coupled with a 10-speed automatic transmission. The maximum engine power will be about 707 horsepower, and it will be transmitted to all four wheels through ARB air lockers on both axles. The machine will receive Bilstein shock absorbers, an upgraded brake system.

   The seven-seater Grand Cherokee will be based on the Giorgio platform from the Italian Alfa Romeo and should be offered either with an updated version of the Pentastar V6, or with the new 3.0-liter in-line “six” and a soft hybrid system that will replace the 5.7-liter Hemi V8.
