Several auto shows have just ended. Aside from these platforms, automakers also display their latest lineup and concepts at local shows. FCA US LLC also did a promotional stint at the State Fair of Texas back in 2016. It was at that event that it unveiled the RAM 1500 Rebel TRX concept. More recently, at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show, representatives suggested a possible Hellcat-powered RAM 1500 in the works. And we at our Chrysler dealership are excited.
At the Detroit Auto Show, FCA US LLC showed a prototype of the 2019 RAM 1500. Interestingly enough, some of the designs borrowed cues from the RAM 1500 TRX concept. Here’s where things get interesting. One of the photos taken of the interior reveals an image of the infotainment screen. The time on the screen read 7:07. Some people speculate that this alludes to the 707 horsepower of the Hellcat engine.
Of course, some people will think it’s a bit of a stretch to correlate the time on the infotainment screen to a hellcat-powered RAM 1500. However, FCA US LLC has previously left clues regarding future models. Prior to the official announcement of the Hellcat-powered 2015 Dodge Challenger, FCA US LLC released a photo of the muscle car’s infotainment screen. On the screen was the SiriusXM ‘70s on 7 channel. When you combine the numbers, you get 707.
It should be noted, by the way, that the aforementioned RAM 1500 TRX was fitted with a de-tuned 6.2-liter Hellcat engine. Perhaps this concept model was an early sign of what’s to come.
Go to Cnet to learn more about the possible Hellcat-Powered RAM 1500.
