2020 Dodge Ram Rebel TRXLast Updated July 21, 2021 | C.J. Tragakis
Long-awaited since being confirmed by FCA in June 2018, the Dodge Ram Rebel TRX began as a concept that caught a lot of eyes. There’s no question that it’s engineered to be rugged and capable enough to compete squarely with the Ford F-150 Raptor, whose off-road prowess has been unmatched by any other pickup to date.
When it comes to off-roading trucks, one truck outshines them all: the Ford Raptor. As the Raptor is based on Ford’s popular F-150 platform, how is the Raptor different than the F-150? Introduced in 2010 by Ford’s Special Vehicle Team, the Raptor was created specifically for off-roading. Inspired by the Baja 1000, a legendary off-road race that takes place in Mexico, the Raptor was built for off-roading performance. Whether that’s racing in the desert, riding through the trail, or crawling over rocks, the Ford Raptor can conquer even the toughest terrain. Although the F-150 is a capable truck that is no stranger to off-roading, the Raptor is a straight-up, rugged machine that offers unrivaled performance.
If you’ve been in the market for a new F-150 Raptor from Ford but haven’t pulled the trigger yet, then it may be a wise decision to wait until the 2019 model year begins hitting dealer floors. Ford is upping the ante by taking their ultimate high-performance off-road pickup and making it even better with upgraded tech from electronically controlled Fox Racing Shox to Trail Control and new Recaro seats.
