I don’t see that at all. Besides the name part. Does the Camry copy the accord? At some point one needs to see they are different vehicles designed for the same purpose.Ford had a desert running 1/2 ton pickup with a good amount of power and they called it the Raptor, apparently named after the dinosaur. Along comes Ram with their 1/2 ton pickup, and they copied every single thing about the Raptor, but added a bigger engine. they even named it TRX, call it the T-Rex, and have a picture of a t-rex dinosaur eating a raptor. You gotta have blinders on if you believe that Ram didn't copy the Raptor. Ram did to Ford the same as Ford is doing to Jeep. "Hey there's a concept that works!" then they benchmark it make their same product be able to just beat the original in every measurable way. It's not a bad thing, IMO, and has been going on for decades.
Ram already had an off road truck, one that is better off road than the Raptor (IMO). It's called the Power Wagon. But it's a different niche than the Raptor. The Raptor was first to the mass produced desert runner niche, and now Ram has entered that. Arguably Wrangler was the only vehicle in the purpose built offroad SUV niche and now Ford is entering that niche. Bronco is to Wrangler as TRX is to Raptor.
When I think of copying I think of the same design cues, meaning they look alike. I think vette has been copying Ferrari for years. Whenever Ferrari changed its design so does GM. No coincidence that from a distance the vette looks like a Ferrari.
Getting back to the TRX I’m shocked it took them this long to get an off road truck to market. How many power wagons does dodge sell? It’s an dh truck with sway dis. I looked at the Rebel not the pw before buying my Tremor.
