Named for the tyrannosaurus rex, the RAM TRX roared onto the scene in 2020, thrilling truck enthusiasts. Learn more and take a test drive soon at any Earnhardt Auto Centers location, including Earnhardt Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in Gilbert and Earnhardt Queen Creek Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram.
Scottsdale resident Jeff Harris calls the RAM TRX the best truck he’s ever driven, and he’s driven trucks for 40 years. He has a 2022 model, and says it’s the fastest truck he’s ever driven. The beefed-up yet agile truck comes with a hefty price, but it doesn’t disappoint.
“For such a big truck, I’m surprised at how smooth it drives,” Harris said. RAM didn’t scrimp on interior space either, Harris says, noting that the inside offers a “phenomenal” amount of room. He’s driven his RAM TRX around town and on road trips, and the TRX never fails to attract attention.
“When I go out with this truck, people come up and tell me what a nice truck it is,” Harris said. “It’s very beefy looking and wider than a regular truck. It’s the greatest truck I’ve ever owned.”
Reviewers agree that the RAM TRX is a formidable competitor in the truck market. Car and Driver calls it “the quickest gas-powered truck we’ve ever tested,” getting to 60 miles per hour in 3.7 seconds. According to the review, “despite its 6800-pound heft, it can beat a Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 to the next streetlight.”
The RAM TRX’s 6.2-liter Hemi V-8, known as the Hellcat engine, provides 702 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque, sent to all four wheels through its eight-speed automatic transmission, says Car and Driver.
While it’s easy to handle on paved roads, the RAM TRX is made for off-roading. Its 35-inch all-terrain tires mounted on 18-inch wheels provide 11.8 inches of ground clearance. According to RAM, the truck can also handle driving in up to 32 inches of water.
The TRX offers a maximum towing capacity of 8100 pounds, and can carry up to 1310 pounds of payload, notes Car and Driver.
