The Ram 1500 Rebel TRX is one of the most highly anticipated new vehicles right now. It's the supercharged V-8 Hellcat-engined pickup we've been asking Fiat Chrysler for years now, after all. This spy video, published by TFLnow on YouTube, is likely our best look at the upcoming super-truck yet.

What makes us think this is actually the upcoming Rebel TRX? Well, the lifted ride height, wider body, and oversized tires are good indicators. Rumors suggest Ram is preparing to unveil the production truck sometime this year, so seeing it out on the road dress in camouflage up isn't too surprising.

What is surprising though, is the grille. Through the thin veil of netting up front, we can see a crosshair-style grille—a signature design feature seen on much of Dodge and Ram's lineups up until last year. We doubt Ram is reviving the design for the TRX—we're betting the crosshair here is just a clever way to hide the truck's true look until Ram is ready to show it for real.

Towards the end of the video, we can hear a V-8 exhaust note TFLnow says came from the camouflaged truck. It's worth noting there's no audible supercharger whine. Whether that means there's going to be a version of the TRX without forced induction has yet to be determined. It's also possible this test mule could be an entirely different model we haven't heard about before.

Replay Video

TFLnow's sister channel, TFLoffroad, published a video a short time later with a few more snippets of leaked spy photos, this time of the truck's interior and engine bay. We get a look at the supercharger under the hood, bespoke TRX-badged seats, a console-mounted shift knob, and what looks to be a trailer steering system dial.
