Dodge Ram TRX, Meet The New Powerful Beast
With the appearance of the new beast, the Dodge Ram TRX with 702-horsepower contributes to a flare-up of the fight for the best high-performance pickup truck. This is a very powerful, impressive, and strong truck.
In relation to the regular Ram 1500, this Dodge Ram TRX is 8 inches is wider and longer but also his off-road capabilities have been much improved. Аll this is thanks to more sophisticated suspension, a stronger frame, and myriad other enhanced characteristics.
The Dodge Ram TRX is equipped with the latest technology and has a very luxurious interior. Аnd the only question that needs to be answered is whether TRX can fly higher over the jumps than the now seemingly obsolete Raptor.
What’s New For This Dodge Ram TRX?
Dodge Ram challenged his biggest high-powered rival the F-150 Raptor since it debuted a badass concept truck back in 2016, but with the introduction of the new model from the wait is over, and the rivalry became even greater.
What is very striking – despite the fact it packs a 700-plus-horsepower Hellcat motor is that the production on this model of Dodge Ram TRX is approximately the same as what was promised.
With intimidating inflated bodywork, body-colored bead-lock-capable wheels an abundance of other off-road goodies, and a bed-mounted spare-tire carrier, the most radical Ram is is created entirely.
What Is The Price For The Dodge Ram TRX?
The price of this model of Dodge Ram TRX starts from $71,000, which is basically a very large amount of money when it comes to a truck. Оnly for information, no other truck doesn’t produce 700-plus horsepower so this model looks very powerful and aggressive as Muhammad Ali in his prime.
The basic model of this beast has a lot of equipment, but it still lacks some functions that were believed to be standard functions. Just to mention that heated front seats and a heated steering wheel cost extra, and they’re otherwise only available with the Level 1 package. If you opt for this accessory you have to pay $ 75k but bring small upgrades.
The details that make this model stand out are cargo-box lighting, a storage compartment under the rear seat, leather-trimmed seats, a flat-bottom steering wheel wrapped in leather and microsuede, and more.
If you decide to buy our recommendation is to choose this model as well as the Trailer-Tow package with a target to increase pickup’s pulling abilities.
All those who have a desire for lane-keep assist, the digital rearview mirror, adaptive cruise control, and a head-up display, must choose the Level 2 package and all this increases the price of this Dodge Ram TRX by $80,000.
Performance, Engine, And Transmission
This beast under the hood has a supercharged 6.2-liter Hemi V-8. He is known as the Hellcat engine, whereas a specific version produces 702 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque, and the movement of all four wheels is enabled by means of eight-speed automatic transmission.
Dodge Ram TRX accelerates from 0 to 60 mph for a time of 4.5 seconds, and while quarter-mile passes it for amazing 12.9 seconds at 108 mph. The acceleration of this vehicle is very impressive and the time it achieves is unattainable for any pickup—even a high-performance one, but this vehicle is also intended for driving on rocks, sand, and mud.
With an amplified steel frame, TRX boasts a beefed-up suspension which is made in order to bend and bound with more than 13 inches of travel. Moves on massive 35-inch all-terrain tires and they are set to 18-inch wheels that contribute to the truck’s 11.8 inches of ground clearance.
Statements coming from the manufacturer Ram are that their half-ton Hellcat can ford up to 32 inches of water, too. This truck also comes with an electronic-locking rear differential, enough underbody plating to protect a Brink’s truck, gigantic 15.0-inch front brakes, and Bilstein remote-reservoir dampers.
