At the 2016 Texas State Fair, Ram Trucks introduced a concept truck to go head to head against the Ford Raptor. It was called the Ram TRX and it was a supercharged and lifted off road beast. 3 years later, at this year’s Texas State Fair, the TRX has officially been approved for production.
Ram quietly announced the TRX production plans in a press release celebrating their 10 year anniversary of their separation from Dodge. This vehicle is being touted as the 100 MPH off road truck. There is very little official information other than the TRX will have a 6.2 liter supercharged V8 producing 575 horsepower. This Hellcat engine is detuned from the standard 707 horsepower for the preservation of the driveline components.
TFL Truck acquired insider information that does show some leaked specs for the upcoming truck. The TRX will feature a 2.5 inch suspension lift with 13 inches of suspension travel, an increase 1.5 and 4 inches over Ram’s current off road truck, The Rebel. 35 inch tires will come standard as will adaptive shock absorbers. The vehicle track width has been increased by 6 inches for added stability and the frame has been reinforced to handle the heavy abuse from off road terrain.
The TRX should be available as a 2021 model in the fall of 2020.
