I think Ram is coming out with a Rebel TRX and it's set to go up against the Raptor, but if they don't tune the engine properly, could it compete against the Wildtrak?

The rumored engine specs for the TRX seem to indicate a 6.2l V8 with 700hp, so if anything it will be the Raptor that is outclassed. It is however going to be a bit of a balancing act for Ram as it'll be hard to facilitate decent fuel economy with that kind of powertrain.

Going to be hard and very expensive to leave the hp as is with the Hellcat because most platforms needs to be specially designed to handle it. So the Ranger Raptor could still win with a slight power boost and lower price.

Well power certainly isn't everything, and we know that Ford has placed the biggest investment into the Raptors suspension system. Doesn't do much good having 700hp on tap if that results in an extremely unpleasant ride.

Ideally, I'd like to see a bit more power and torque along with the new suspension system Ford rolled out for the F-150 Raptor. That would make the perfect all-rounder UTE and the Ranger could dominate the small pickup segment. But that probably won't happen anytime soon.

If Hennessy Performance can get their act together and prove they are again a worthy tuner then I might just go that route.
