What Engine is Available for the TRX
RAM brings you the power with the TRX as it comes with a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine that pumps out an impressive 702 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. The sturdy engine connects to a Torqueflite eight-speed automatic transmission, which allows the TRX to handle the additional torque load. The TRX can reach a top speed of 118 mph while going from 0-60 in 4.5 seconds or less, so feel free to put the pedal to the metal. All of this power is also useful for towing as the TRX can haul up to 8,100 pounds with a payload capacity of 1,310 pounds.
Exclusive TRX Features
The RAM TRX comes with several unique features that makes driving it a breeze. Starting things is a new flat-bottom steering wheel that comes with enhanced hand grips that are wrapped in leather or suede and carbon fiber accents, which helps to enable performance driving. Also new are the aluminum paddle shifters that stretch above and below the steering wheel spokes and allows the driver to choose the proper gear right at their fingertips. Additionally, there is a Driver Mode selector that has been integrated into the dashboard and offers different modes of operation, including Normal, Wet/Snow, Off-road, and Baja. You also get a Launch Control button, which is easily within reach of the driver and comes standard on the TRX.
Adding to the RAM TRX performance is a Heads-up display that can show you many different content areas at once. These include Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keep Assist, adaptive cruise control, turn-by-turn navigation, current speed, current gear, and speed limit. The heads-up display is available with the TR2 equipment group and is available with a full-color unit via a Uconnect 12-inch touchscreen. The interior is decked out in either leather, premium cloth, and vinyl, or premium wrapped leather and suede with red accents. The TR1 or TR2 Equipment Groups provide medium Greystone stitching and Graphite Metallic accents that come standard with the package. There are also over 100 active and passive safety features available, including ParkView rear backup camera with dynamic gridlines, electronic stability control. You also get Blind-spot Monitoring, adaptive cruise control, Ready Alert Braking, and Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning-Plus.
Going off-road is part of the plan when it comes to the RAM TRX, and there are a ton of features to accentuate it. The ground clearance for the TRX is an impressive 11.8 inches thanks to the 2-inch ride height increase. There are also 35-inch all-terrain tires that are designed for even the roughest of trails. All of these features allow the RAM TRX to go over anything at a high rate of speed. To protect all of the vital components during off-roading, the TRX comes with five skid plates and optional heavy-duty gauge steel rock sliders. Moving to the back of the truck reveals a rear suspension with active damping and a five-ring coil system for improved ride characteristics.
