MotorTrend’s 2021 Truck of the Year: THE HEART OF A LEGEND, TRANSPLANTED – Being named 2021 MotorTrend’s Truck of the Year means that with a 6.2-liter supercharged V-8 that produces 702 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque, the all-new 2021 Ram 1500 TRX doesn’t just perform, it’s the new benchmark for extreme performance pickup trucks.
MOTOR TREND REVIEW: For starters, the TRX gets a beefed-up frame that’s 74 percent different than that of a standard Ram 1500. It then gets new (relocated) axles, unique 18-inch wheels with knobby 35-inch Goodyear all-terrain tires (custom specced for the TRX), and a game-changing new suspension from Bilstein that combines remote reservoirs and massive 2.5-inch-diameter pistons with electronic valve damping. All of this adds up to the end goal of making the TRX as capable of scrabbling up rocks and soaring over dunes as it is loafing through traffic on the freeway.
Out in its natural environment and let loose in the high-desert scrub surrounding Los Angeles, the Ram TRX feels downright unstoppable. Senior features editor Jonny Lieberman said: “Forget about the engine (just kidding), and concentrate on how when you put the TRX in Baja Mode. It suddenly corners in dirt like a sports car on concrete. And forget about desert running; the TRX is capable of real frame-twisting, hill-scaling, stair-stepping, rock-hopping off-roading, too.”
How could we forget the Ram’s engine? It’s Hellcat 6.2-liter supercharged V-8 has been modified from Dodge and Jeep duty to make it capable of functioning at extreme off-road angles and in both wet and heavy dust conditions. Making 702 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque, the TRX inhales through a new functional hood scoop and a grille with a passthrough Ram logo. It exhales via new exhaust manifolds and X-pipes, the spent air exiting from 5.0-inch exhaust tips tucked up into the steel bumper. In the TRX, the engine is paired with a new high-torque-capacity eight-speed automatic and full-time four-wheel-drive system.
The TRX works just as well on-road as it does off of it. “The way this thing rears back when you floor it is just nutty,” features editor Scott Evans said. “Also, Sport mode turns off the traction control! This truck is insane.” The Ram’s trick shocks mitigate body roll and brake dive while steering remains progressive and accurate despite the truck’s massive off-road tires.
Our test numbers back this up. With a 4.1 second 0-to-60-mph run and a blistering 12.7-second quarter-mile at 106.3 mph, the TRX is the fastest pickup truck we’ve tested since our founding in September 1949.
More than just a speed machine, the Ram TRX handles “truck stuff” quite well, too. Rated to haul 1,310 pounds in its bed or tow up to 8,100 pounds off its rear hitch (that’s 110 pounds more in the bed and 100 pounds more off the bumper than the rival F-150 Raptor), the Ram proved more than capable of shrugging off 5,200 pounds of Airstream behind it.
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.
