Truck YeahThe trucks are good!  

Night falls, drawing yet another day of the fighting to a close. You lean your head back against the Ram Rebel TRX Concept’s headrest and close your eyes, lulled by the engine’s grumble. You loosen up the six-point harness slightly. It’s safe, but it makes it hard to reach for your gun.

The 6.2-liter supercharged Hemi has always been a source of comfort for you. Especially now, packed behind the face of a half-ton pickup outfitted for war. There’s more than 13 inches of wheel travel at all four corners, with front and rear bypass shocks for improved response and damping.

You savor this moment of quiet—and suddenly an explosion rips apart the horizon in your rearview mirror.


You jerk upright, hands flying to the steering wheel. They’ve spotted your truck and they’re coming for you, the hideous Warglesnarg cavalrymen, mounted astride their equally hideous Knraxx steeds.

Slamming your foot on the accelerator, the truck’s mighty 13.5-inch tires dig into the dirt and propel you forward, the scream of all 575 horsepower ripping from the side exhausts. You curse the day that the wretched beasts landed their spacecraft on earth and started this damn war.


An echoing scream sounds from the lead Warglesnarg as it senses its prey escaping. It digs its heels into the heaving flanks of its Knraxx, urging it onwards.

You keep your foot mashed determinedly on the accelerator. They told you that this truck could “devour the roughest terrain at more than 100 miles per hour and never look back.” Now seems like a good a time as any to test that out.


Your knuckles, gripping the wheel tightly, are white. But you are getting away. You are flying across the terrain, spraying dirt and pebbles this way and that. Eventually, the Warglesnarg give up and fade into the distance.

You get away. Heart still thudding quickly, you give silent thanks the Resistance for handing you this over the standard Ram 1500. In fact, you’re still not sure if they’ll put this truck into production. They only sent you out to gather intel today. But maybe this is the push they’ll need to bring the truck into production. You could see it happening, too, since the Ford Raptor needs a suitable competitor.

You pull into base with a small smile, imaging an entire fleet of Ram Rebel TRXs.
