The Mopar brand is releasing seven custom concept vehicles for this year’s Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show. The fleet of custom vehicles and hundreds of performance parts and accessories for the Dodge, Jeep®, and Ram Truck brands, will be on display inside Mopar’s dedicated exhibit inside the Las Vegas Convention Center starting November 2nd to the 5th.
The first vehicle we will be discussing is the Ram TRX RexRunner Concept.
Built on the award-winning 2022 Ram 1500 TRX (the quickest, fastest, and most powerful truck ever), the Ram TRX RexRunner Concept carries a truckload of Mopar accessories and custom parts, elevating the apex predator of the truck world to even greater levels of high-speed capability and durability.
Powered by the supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI V8 engine, rated at a stratospheric 702 horsepower and 650 lb.-ft. of torque, the TRX RexRunner Concept rides on 37-inch Goodyear tires mounted to custom-designed 18-inch x 9-inch Black Rhino Chamber wheels for a race-inspired appearance at all four corners.
Exterior Features –
The TRX RexRunner Concept is visually distinguished with Ash Gray paint and several Mopar Blue accents, including a center stripe that extends over the hood and roof, TRX bedside graphics, Ram grille, and dual tow hooks upfront.
Adding to the rugged exterior design, a RamBar accessory bar features a pair of concept 14-inch TYRI rectangular LED lights, generating 4,300 lumens of exceptionally bright, fully illuminating light for off-road driving. Just below the RamBar, a fully integrated, bed-mounted spare-tire carrier from Mopar keeps a 37-inch spare tire/wheel at the ready. A Mopar bed extender flips inward for secure transportation of tools and equipment and to help protect that bed, the TRX RexRunner Concept features a black, Mopar spray-in textured bed liner.
Custom metal skid plates feature laser-etched Mopar lettering and help protect the front and rear underside areas of the truck. The use of the front skid plate helps to increase the approach angle by 2.3 degrees, which now boasts 32.5 degrees. Mopar rock rails also help protect the side sills from any damage, while a custom, black, flip-top, fuel-filler door adds to the rugged exterior.
Just below the rear bumper, a pair of 5-inch black Mopar exhaust tips provide a sporty, finished appearance. A Mopar bed step features an articulating arm that lowers for easy access to the truck bed and, with a gentle push, retracts to a stored, out-of-the-way position.
Interior Features –
The race-inspired interior of the TRX RexRunner Concept is designed for the ultimate dynamic driving experience using a combination of features from production versions of the Ram 1500 TRX and the workhorse Ram 1500 Tradesman.
From the award-winning TRX production model are the center stack, instrument cluster, flat-bottom steering wheel with paddle shifters, center-console-mounted floor shifter, and aggressive bolster sport seats. In addition, Mopar stainless-steel pedal covers featuring black rubber pads, add plenty of traction to the accelerator and brake pedals. Additionally, molded one-piece door panels and a vinyl floor from the Tradesman model allow for quick and easy cleaning.
