Exactly! I keep having thoughts of buying a SCSB F150 with a Coyote and adding some boost to make a cool street truck. There's probably no real market for factory muscle trucks anymore though so I can see why nobody makes one.

Let's be honest, if they made it, dealers will put an ADM on it and people will be lining up to buy it. I really dont think there was a market for muscle trucks before, but produce them in limited numbers and they will sell.

no, he didn't.


"Now Ram wants to take a piece of that market with the Ram Rebel TRX. We've already seen this in concept form a few years ago, but now it'll be real. And it'll be powered by a 6.2 liter supercharged V8.

That engine is also known as the Hellcat.

Now, we're not sure how much power it'll have, the TRX Concept had 575 horsepower, but now that we have a 707 horsepower Jeep Grand Cherokee, why can't we have a 707 horsepower Ram?"

The problem is outside of a relatively small group of people, nobody even knows what a sy/ty is. Unless these trucks sell really well, the TBSS might be the last performance truck from gm outside of an off-road performance truck.

Do love me a sy/ty though

My question would be more of "why not" past some emissions or CAFE certs how much R&D is it really to shoe horn such an engine into an existing truck? All of the big 3 have performance RWD Car engines they could stuff into a truck (the trucks having looser mpg and emissions requirements than the cars) and get away with it no problem. That says nothing of being able to get a nice axle for out back for a truck as a parts bin item too. Trucks also tend to have massive radiators and cooling systems which are good for a performance vehicle.

You'd need what some suspension and brake bits maybe? Perhaps some custom stitching on the seats and some 3D printed badges/trim pieces so you could charge a huge markup?

The thing I dont like about it... Its a Dodge.

I'm surprised my F150 hasn't had more problems as hard as I drive it.

If the TRX isnt 90k like the trackhawk I will look hard at it.

I canít remember what dealer, but they were making new Lightning's. Slapped a bunch of lightning badges, custom wheels that were Lightning-esque, and I believe a Roush blower. Used a XL or XLT SCSB. Do that with a 10-speed, and that would be a ripper.
