If you are ready to speed through sand washes in a purpose-built truck, you have a new full-size pickup to add to your wish list. The 2021 Ram 1500 TRX is the fastest, most powerful off-road truck on the market. Its 702-horsepower engine was borrowed from the Hellcat line of Dodge high-performance cars, but in the TRX it has been modified for heavy-duty high-speed racing. While the suspension has been engineered for hard-core Baja runs, this truck is also said to provide a comfortable ride. The interior has all of the near-lux amenities we’ve come to expect from Ram, as well as some new tech to further enhance any off-road shenanigans.
If the philosophy of this truck sounds familiar, it’s because the Ram is facing off directly with the Ford Raptor, another half-ton truck that was designed and engineered for fast sand running. But the TRX – based on the Ram 1500 – and the Raptor – based on the Ford F-150 – have some key differences. The TRX comes with a 702-horsepower engine, a far cry from the Raptor’s 450.
HELLCAT POWER – Ram, previously known as Dodge, has never been one to shy away from using a muscle-car engine in its trucks. The supercharged 6.2-liter 702-horsepower engine in the Ram 1500 TRX is a beast, far surpassing the Ford Raptor’s 450. It has a top speed of 118 mph and goes from 0-60 mph in 4.5 seconds. This takes us back to when the Dodge Ram was available with the Viper’s V10 engine, which put out “only” 500 horsepower.
OFF-ROAD CHOPS – The 2021 Ram 1500 TRX’s suspension uses active damping with unique-to-TRX Bilstein shocks, and coil springs in the front and rear. It has a solid rear axle with an electronic locking rear differential and a 5-link rear suspension. It has 13 inches of wheel travel in the front and rear. The truck’s unique air intake is a dual-path system that brings in air through the grille and the functional hood scoop. And there’s a selectable Baja drive mode that’s specifically for high-speed sand runs.
Adaptive Cruise Control – This is part of the optional advanced safety group. Adaptive cruise control keeps the vehicle at a set speed and can speed up or slow down your truck while keeping a safe distance to the traffic ahead.
Integrated Electronic Trailer Reverse Steer Control – Backing up a trailer can be confusing. You have to turn the wheel in the opposite direction of what your instinct tells you to do. Ram’s trailer reverse system is designed to make backing up a trailer much easier. You use a dial, turning it left when you want the trailer to go left, and right when you want it to go right, and the system does the steering for you.
Despite the hard-core off-road nature of the Ram 1500 TRX, the interior uses premium materials and plenty of tech, both of which have become Ram trademarks. The TRX comes with Ram’s 12-inch Uconnect touchscreen, which is where you will find off-road and performance information. The flat-bottom steering wheel has paddle shifters that control the 8-speed automatic transmission. The TRX uses a floor-mounted transmission shifter instead of the dash-mounted dial found throughout the Ram 1500 lineup. This TRX has a stylish black interior with Graphite accents along the seats’ bolsters and on the doors. There’s also a badge that has your truck’s VIN and engine data on it.
The TR2 adds heated & cooled seats (front & rear), reclining rear seats, plus many other options and MOLLE (Modular Lightweight Load-carrying Equipment) storage system. This is on the back of the front seats, and you can use carabiners or hooks to secure smaller items.
The 2021 Ram 1500 TRX comes in one body style: Crew Cab with a 5’7″ bed. The TRX is eight inches wider than the Ram 1500 at the front and the rear and has a 6-inch wider track. Because of the added width, there are LED clearance marker lights on the hood scoop and in the front fender flares. The fender flares are made of a composite material, and the hood is aluminum. The front end is unique to the TRX, with more aggressive design than the rugged Ram Rebel model and there are four tow hooks on the truck. The truck rides on 35-inch tires with 18-inch wheels.
The list of features is impressive. This Crew Cab Ram is powered by a supercharged 6.2-liter Hellcat engine, which puts out 702 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. All 1500 TRX models have a 5’7″ bed, 4WD, and 18-inch wheels and 35-inch tires with a full-size spare. Inside the interior, a flat-bottom steering wheel with aluminum paddle shifters. Ram’s Uconnect infotainment system with a 12-inch touchscreen and a 10-speaker Harman Kardon audio system.
Because of the high-performance engine, you also get launch control, a shift light, after-run cooling, and performance engine cooling – similar features to what are in Hellcat-powered cars.
The all-new Ram 1500 TRX was born to cross rough terrain in punishing conditions at intense speeds.
It’s the brilliant blend of extreme off-road capability and fierce SRT performance. Simply put, TRX is–by far–the quickest, fastest, and most powerful production truck in the world.
