Over the past several years, we have seen a number of digital renderings blending two unique vehicles into one. Some of those vehicles have turned out to be real eye stoppers. But our friend Oscar Vargas (wb.artist20), has created probably one that probably tops the cake. Blending the best attributes of two awesome Hellcat-powered machines, he has created something that looks like its part AMC Eagle and part Local Motors Rally Fighter.
This “Charger TRX” design allows for the Charger to retain most of its four-door coupe-like design, with the underpinning from the Ram 1500 TRX. The body appears to be much wider than the standard Charger we are accustomed to, judging by how the body sticks out around the fuel door. The Charger carries over its iconic side scallops on its doors, but the widebody fender flares are gone and have been replaced with rigged plastic fender flares to help protect the body from debris.
The front quarter panel has been redesigned as well, to allow for more wheel travel. The Charger TRX adopts many of the Ram TRX’s signature design elements such as its performance hood with heat extractors, air intake, and marker lights. The styling from the front grille, front bumper, and slimmer profile headlamps all take influence from the Ram.
Rated at 702 horsepower and 650 lb.-ft. of torque, the supercharged 6.2-liter HELLCAT HEMI V8 engine powers the Ram TRX to a top speed of 118 mph. However, we would like to see this design concept with the more powerful supercharged 6.2-liter HELLCAT HEMI H.O. V8 from the Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye Jailbreak under the hood. That would be good enough for 807 horsepower and 707 lb.-ft. of torque.
We would love to see such a vehicle. Something totally different than anything else in the market, that can continue the Dodge performance pedigree. This design shows us that Dodge’s DNA can be used outside the traditional SUV and muscle cars, its lineup has consisted of in recent years.
