The 2022 RAM TRX Is The Apex Predator Of Pickups (w/ Specs)

Since coming to its own, following its separation from Dodge, RAM has prided itself at producing the most powerful trucks in the world to support what trucks were originally designed to do — absolutely anything. From day one, RAM’s identity was to be a truck made for real truck owners. These are the men and women of the community with the spirit to lead, with the desire to build industries and push the boundaries, creating change and challenging convention.

Such is the strength that comes with the launch of the 2022 RAM TRX. Likened to the legendary T-Rex, the RAM TRX is made for performance and for breaking down barriers, including the convention that pick-up trucks are only either for functional utility or a leisure outdoor adventure. To that, the TRX says, “Why not do both – and more?”

The RAM TRX sits steadfast atop 18-inch black aluminum wheels, with a rugged frontage that highlights the modern RAM’s head logo and the flow-through badge lettering. It features a full LED Adaptive Front-lighting System (AFS), including twin bi-functional projector headlamps, fog lamps, and tail lamps. It also integrates new LED clearance lamps that are fixed into the hood scoop and front bumper flares to further amplify its overall aesthetics.

The RAM TRX runs on a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 HEMI engine, making it the fastest truck in the world, able to go from 0 to 100 km/h in about 4.5 seconds, 160 km/h in 10.5 seconds, and the quarter mile in 12.9 seconds. It produces a total of 702 horsepower and 881 Nm of torque. This combination of power allows the TRX to an exciting adventure partner when needed.

Along with the power of the engine and the 8-speed transmission, it is built with a new five-link independent rear suspension system that is tuned to deliver some of the best handling and ride comfort around, regardless of the road condition. It also comes with the all-new front and rear 2.6-inch Bilstein Black Hawk e2 adaptive performance shocks that is made specifically for the TRX to provide faster reaction time, exceptional damping, and heat dissipation when traveling at speed through rougher terrain.

To compensate for the high-pressure impact brought about by the wideness of the truck, the RAM TRX has an improved airflow ventilation system that allows air to come up through the flow-through R-A-M badge header and through the hood scoop and side fender vents. This lessens the high pressure at the corners of the truck and provides unbeatable ventilation that is required to keep the truck at its safest, most optimum level.

Inside, the RAM TRX offers the most spacious interior in the segment, with exciting features that are made to enhance and uplift the aesthetic experience of driving a truck. One of the statement details in the RAM TRX is the thick flat-bottomed suede-wrapped steering wheel with paddle shifters, which is a first for RAM, in addition to a brand-new console shifter. Add to that is the TRX spec badge that positioned right on the center console, which is unique to every TRX vehicle.

The rugged appeal of the exterior carries over in the carbon fiber adornment in all areas of the interior, woven alongside the contrasting red suede-and-leather trimmings that can be found in areas like the plush bucket seats and shift knob. The TRX logo is also embroidered on front headrests.

In terms of comfort, among those that are standard to the RAM TRX are 8-way power seats for both the driver and passenger, with 4-way lumbar adjustment, driver seat memory, and heated/ventilated functions. The cabin also offers conveniences, such as a digital rearview mirror, a 7-inch TFT full-color display for the instrument cluster, USB charging ports, and a wireless charging dock. For entertainment and connectivity, the RAM TRX has a built-in 12-inch touchscreen display with UConnect, hooked up to a Harman Kardon 19-speaker premium sound system and fully-integrated with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

A key highlight to the RAM TRX, is the Head-Up Display (HUD) that serves as the driver’s virtual cockpit. It is designed to project up to five different content areas at once, customizable to the information that the driver requires.

The TRX includes unique features such as a Multi-function Dampened Tailgate with remote release, 7-pin wiring harness, E-Locker rear axle, Mopar 4 adjustable cargo tie-down hooks, and a deployable Mopar Bed Step.

In terms of safety, the RAM TRX boasts of 6 airbags, Blind Spot and Cross Path Detection, Electronic Roll Mitigation, full speed Forward Collision Warning, Front/Rear Park Assist, a Surround View Camera System, and a Sentry Key theft deterrent system.
