Jeep and Ram Are Bringing Notable New Models and Variants to SEMA

The Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show was on a forced sabbatical last year due to the pandemic, but it s back this year at its usual spot in Las Vegas, Nevada.
And from the looks and sounds of it, some automakers are planning to make big splashes in the pool there. The Jeep and Ram divisions of the Stellantis Group, for example. The conglomerate has shared images hinting at what visitors to the show will get from the two brands.
Some of the unveilings hinted at are clearly in the realm of one-off customizations and will never see the light of day, but others are more genuine and could very well make their way into the lineups in the near future.
A Ram 1500 pickup
Certainly the most intriguing image is of part of the front end of a silver Ram 1500 TRX wearing blue accents - blue of course being the colour used by the automaker to designate a plug-in hybrid product. The front tow hooks are also blue, something we’ve seen on the Wrangler 4xe hybrid variant. Ram 1500s equipped with the eTorque hybrid assist (a lightweight 48-volt system) also sport blue accents.
So it seems clear that a Ram 1500 TRX with a hybrid powertrain will be shown at SEMA. Will it be powered by the Wrangler s 375-hp turbocharged 4-cylinder or something else entirely?
