We take you on a tour of the monster 2021 RAM 1500 TRX
The RAM 1500 TRX makes 702 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque, thanks to a supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI V8. This simply means that this is the most powerful truck in its class, by far. The supercharger itself is massive, displacing 2.4-liters. Putting the ridiculous power aside, there is a lot more to the TRX. This is a truck that is almost totally unique from a regular Ram 1500 truck. That includes a significantly beefed-up frame, suspension, bodywork, and accessories.

The RAM 1500 TRX you’re seeing in this video costs over $91,000 – as it is fully loaded. Base models start at $70,095 and (if you can find one at that price) you still get the badass powertrain and off-road capability. This model has everything from a moonroof, top-end seats, carbon-fiber inserts, and top-of-the-line infotainment with a 12-inch screen. It also has the graphics package, tech-package, and bed-mounted spare tire – among other options.
That is still one expensive truck; however, consider what you are getting for the money. If you were to buy your own, brand-new, full-size truck and modify it like this one – you could spend a lot more. Then suspension system alone, (which is fully adjustable on the fly) is complex and pricy.
The armor, body augmentation, frame strengthening, and upgrades would cost a pretty penny too. Finally, there’s the engine: getting that type of power out of a vehicle that can also serve as a (not very efficient) daily driver is no easy task!
We are not directly comparing it against the other off-road beast, the Ford F150 Raptor, this time, but we do mention the Raptor as they have very similar features. If you were cross-shopping these two trucks, we thought it would be a good idea to do a deep dive into the TRX’s options and features.
