Ram 1500 TRX Wins MotorTrend Truck of Year

Third Consecutive MotorTrend Truck of the Year Award for Ram Truck

The 2021 Ram 1500 TRX won MotorTrend's 2021 Truck of the Year. For the first time ever, the same vehicle manufacturer won three years in a row for ANY of MotorTrend's "Year of" awards, and six times in the past eleven years. Three years in a row! Unheard of...legendary. The industry will be talking about this for years. This highly coveted prize is earned for superiority in class, exceptional value, and impact on the automotive industry. All-new or significantly re-designed vehicles are considered. Every feature of each contender is thoroughly evaluated and completely tested, including being assessed on three different courses. What are the criteria MotorTrend is assessing? They are: engineering excellence, design advancement, safety, efficiency, performance of intended function, and value.

Power and Performance of the Ram 1500 TRX

The TRX is the most powerful mass-produced half-ton pickup ever. It delivers 702-horsepower and 650 lb.-ft. of torque with its 6.2-liter Supercharged HEMI V-8 Engine. This V-8 achieves near-instantaneous torque with a maximum of 14,600 rpm. It's also the fastest, going from 0-60 mph in 4.5 seconds and 0-100 mph in 10.5 seconds. It covers 0.25 miles in less than 13 seconds and can reach a max speed of 118 mph. Launch Control with Launch Assist regulates engine RPM to always obtain the best acceleration rate attainable. It seriously outperforms all other trucks with its supreme durability and capability, designed to tackle extremely arduous terrain. The TorqueFlite 8HP95 eight-speed automatic transmission boasts precise, swift shifting not only during everyday driving, but also when pushed to its limits. With a forged-steel crankshaft and induction-hardened bearings, the engine block can handle pressures comparable to 20,000 pounds of force. The rear air suspension delivers a luxurious ride, maintaining its capability.   

Features of the Ram TRX

You never have to take your eyes off the road again with the optional all-new Head Up Display, projecting customizable items like speed, navigation, and speed limit. Other innovative features include reclining rear seats, RamBox, and RamBins. RamBox is an exclusive cargo management system that is lockable, weatherproof, lighted, and drainable, with 8.6 cubic feet of space. RamBins are storage compartments hidden underneath the leg space of the rear seats. The available Trailer Reverse Steering Control System assists the driver in the tricky task of backing up with a trailer.
