Check the clock. It may be time for Ram to finally give us the Hellcat-powered truck we don’t need or deserve, but that we want.

The 2019 Ram 1500, including its Rebel model, was one of the most solid vehicles to debut at this year’s Detroit Auto Show. We already crawled through the truck to try to find as many of its easter eggs as we could, but we missed one that wasn’t on the floor models.

As first reported by Allpar, the press photos released with the announcement of the 2019 Ram Rebel contain one more Easter egg, featuring the very specific time stamp of 7:07 on the infotainment screen.




If you’re not aware, Ram is part of FCA, which happens to have the 707 horsepower Hellcat engine that it’s only put in the Dodge Charger, Challenger and Jeep Cherokee so far. If Ram is trying to hint that a Ram Rebel Hellcat might be coming down the pipeline, it’d be a big deal.

Ram has teased in the past about a higher-performance truck, like the 575-horsepower Hellcat-powered TRX concept back in 2016, and this little time stamp may be an indication that there are real plans for something like a Hellcat Ram now that the newest model has been revealed.

It could be likely, it’s definitely feasible, and it’s absolutely ridiculous but I can’t wait for it to happen. Jalopnik has reached out to Ram and will update with more information as it’s available.

That TRX concept was so fucking cool. Do that with the Hellcat motor and I'm fucking out of the Raptor.

An SRT-10 like truck would be awesome and I think would sell as GM and Ford have abandoned those models. I'm not a big fan of the Raptor or whatever GM is cooking up.

At first I was thinking we were making the assumption that this would be a Hellcat Rebel based off of how the truck was spraying mud in the picture. Now that I read a little more a realize it has to do with the clock time in the truck.

I love how people treat photos on this shit as a damn CSI investigation. I need to start examining these photos closer.

Since the jeep has a transfer case that can hold the power, then maybe this is true

What random dude would go through the hassle of putting an HD/8 lug rear end in his 1500 and buy 2 different lugged sets of wheels (standard 6 lug in the front)? This is definitely a mule. The rear is in there to handle all the horses.

No way that's the TRX. Looks exactly like what the 2019 Rebel will be.
Will be??
