The North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) has announced that it has canceled its show scheduled for June 2020, due to the COVID-19 (or Coronavirus) pandemic sweeping across the world and specifically the Metro Detroit area. NAIAS has been among the biggest auto shows in the world and recently revamped the show’s schedule from the cold Detroit winter season to the warm Michigan summer. Instead, the Federal Emergency Management Agency will be repurposing the TCF Center (formerly named Cobo Center) into a temporary field hospital.
This is a huge blow to Mopar fans, who have been waiting for some exciting news about the upcoming new products coming to the FCA portfolio. Rumors were saying that both the Jeep® and Ram Trucks brands had two massive product introductions for the NAIAS show that was scheduled for this summer. Those two vehicles were the all-new three-row next-generation Jeep® Grand Cherokee and the upcoming supercharged off-roader Ram 1500 Rebel TRX.
The upcoming 2021 Ram 1500 Rebel TRX, is a vehicle 5thGenRams.com has discussed in detail. This past weekend, we showcased a couple of the TRX prototypes out testing on the Metro Detroit highways. The new HELLCAT-powered Ram off-roader will go head-to-head with Ford’s F-150 Raptor. Scheduled for a September production launch at the Metro Detroit-based Sterling Heights Assembly Plant in Sterling Heights, Michigan, the TRX was going to be one of the biggest unveilings at the NAIAS show.
We don’t know when FCA will unveil these vehicles to the public, but there is a growing list of products that were scheduled to make official debuts this year. Stay tuned as 5thGenRams.com continues to bring you the most to date information on the upcoming TRX.
