As you're well aware, 2024 is the final year of the Hellcat-powered Ram TRX off-road pickup truck. Chrysler is going down the inline-six route for 2025, with said engine being the 3.0-liter Hurricane.
Officially dubbed Stellantis Hurricane, this lump comes in two flavors. The standard-output specification belts out a respectable 420 horsepower and 468 pound-feet (635 Nm), which is more than you get from the B58 inline-six turbocharged engine of the BMW M340i compact executive sedan.
In the Ram 1500-based Jeep Grand Wagoneer, the high-output specification is an extra over the 6.4-liter HEMI. Rated at 510 horsepower and 500 pound-feet (678 Nm), this lump is 39 horsepower and 45 pound-feet (61 Nm) up on the naturally-aspirated V8.
Last Call: 2024 Ram 1500 TRX 6.2L Supercharged V8 - Final Edition Salutes Unprecedented Run as North America’s Apex Predator of the Truck World
August 30, 2023 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - Ram today announced the 2024 Ram 1500 TRX 6.2L Supercharged V8 - Final Edition as a proper send-off for the apex predator of the truck world. Ram TRX production will conclude at the end of 2023. The Ram TRX cemented Ram Truck as North America’s off-road truck leader when it debuted in 2020 as a 2021 model, setting new benchmarks for power and performance among half-ton pickup trucks with the 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI® V-8 engine.
Ram’s premier supercharged off-road truck and less extreme Rebel trim get new, exclusive color
Ram's cryptic teaser earlier this week had us wondering if a 510-hp Ram 1500 powered by some iteration of Stellantis' twin-turbo I-6 Hurricane was on the way. It's not—at least, not for now. That teaser was about something else—and these trucks are that something else, a special edition Ram 1500 TRX and Rebel, both wearing a new paint color. It's a badass hue, at least. And variants of the V-8 Hemi are safely alive and very well in the TRX and Rebel, at least.
The exclusive color that the 2023 Ram 1500 TRX Lunar Edition gets is called Ceramic Gray. We can't tell how similar this color is to the Anvil Gray exterior of the TRX Launch...
Went to the dealer to get my oil changed and service writer asked me about the recalls. I received a letter about the tailgate, but he then mentioned the hood emblems 6.2 supercharged... both of mine were "loose" and they ordered new ones...Any one else heard of this?
So my local dealer in Central Texas told me that he cannot place an order currently for a 2023 TRX....This is in addition to the rumors this will be the last year according to another dealer in the DFW area....Also on the website, only three colors available to build. All of this leading to that 2023 is the final year.... Any info out there, not opinions but objective data?
This package has a warranty. Running 37s!! And a second faster on the 1/4 mile are the highlights.
Not sure if it is worth 14k has some of y‘all already did some of the mods, but to have factory warranty sounds intriguing.
TRX Still the King as Raptor R Debuts with Less Horsepower and Torque
July 18, 2022 by Patrick Rall
This morning, Ford Motor Company pulled the sheet back from the long-awaited F-150 Raptor R – the V8-powered pickup that would finally defeat the Ram 1500 TRX. Ford fans were sure that the Raptor R would pack gobs more power than the TRX, since the GT500 engine that was expected to come under the hood offers 760 horsepower in the Mustang.
This is an article by Car and Driver on what they noticed on the new TRX. This was about a month ago.
The first half of the Ram 1500 TRX's 40,000-mile test run by Car & Driver has revealed a couple of frustrating constants. That it drinks fuel with startling proficiency is well documented (we're still averaging just 10 mpg). But our 702-hp beast of a Ram also has come to harbor sporadic—and difficult-to-diagnose—malfunctions in its 12.0-inch center touchscreen, which have inexorably drawn our staff's attention as of late. This issue is having a noticeable impact on the TRX's fun factor.
Our truck's ongoing electronic woes come somewhat unexpectedly—despite the similar experience we had with our 2019 Ram 1500...
We wondered: Which Ram 1500 is the best Ram 1500, all things considered?
The absurd TRX off-roader gets all the headlines, but that doesn't guarantee victory.
Comfortable, capable and available in a number of different trim levels, the Ram 1500 has a lot to offer full-size truck buyers. While the Ram 1500 is slightly edged out by the Ford F-150 in Edmunds' current truck rankings, it remains an excellent pickup that we'd recommend buyers take a closer look at.
But even if you decide that the Ram is right for you, there are several trim levels to choose from before you drive one home. Let's take a closer look at three Rams across the spectrum to see what they offer and where they fall short.
Which trucks did they test?
2022 RAM 1500 TRX SANDBLAST EDITION
Calling all thrill seekers and performance enthusiasts, the 2022 Ram 1500 TRX Sandblast Edition joins the pack with an exclusive exterior color, signature interior styling, and the capability you’ve been dreaming of. Hurry, inventory is limited. Contact your local dealer to reserve this beast today.
A modern-day Ramcharger has been at the top of the wish list for many Mopar fans. With the Jeep® brand getting its new full-size SUV twins (Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer), people have been wondering if another brand will get its own full-size SUV variant.
With massive ground clearance, a supercharged V8 good for 702 horsepower, and a ton of cool features, the Ram 1500 TRX is, without doubt, the greatest high-performance pickup truck out there. You'd be tempted to think that there's no room for improvement, but this rendering proves that there is!
Of course, you can always upgrade the supercharged, 6.2-liter V8 to deliver way more than 702 horses. After all, Dodge squeezed no less than 840 horsepower out of the same mill for the Challenger SRT Demon. But this rendering isn't about ludicrous amounts of oomph.
And before you say that you've already seen a Ram TRX single cab rendering, this one proposes a different approach to the beefed-up desert runner. Forget about the off-road-ready...
Trucks Don’t Get Much Crazier Than This Six-Wheel Ram 1500 TRX!
The Ram 1500 TRX isn’t just the world’s most powerful combustion-engined pickup truck but it is also one of the most outlandish production vehicles currently on sale. This particular example is more remarkable than most, however.
Most notably, this 1500 TRX has been converted into a 6×6 by Hennessey as part of a package the Texas tuner dubs the ‘Mammoth.’
To convert the TRX into a wild 6×6, Hennessey doesn’t just fit a new axle and lengthen the bed of the pickup but it also installs new Bilstein suspension and should customers want, can also go to town on the 6.2-liter V8. While a standard 1500 TRX is already very impressive with its 702 hp, Hennessey adds a more...
All-New 2024 Ram Electric Pickup Takes CGI Form to Scare F-150 Lightning and Silverado EV
Rumor going around is that ordering is being or going to be halted on the TRX. Alleging that the hellcat engine is going to be discontinued earlier than previously stated. I’m not sold on this being true, but if it is my truck will get and stay more valuable.
