For some people, one full-size truck is as good as another – something like the standard Ram 1500 pickup, with its impressive power and capability, is plenty of truck for what they need. But for those truck fans looking to experience the ultimate expression of performance from a pickup, there is the 2022 Ram 1500 TRX: the fastest, most powerful truck in the world. You might think that is a bold, perhaps even excessive claim, but once you see everything this pickup has to offer, you will realize exactly why we say it.
For starters, the Ram 1500 TRX is much more than simply a specialized trim of the standard Ram pickup – this is a truck built from the ground up for unparalleled performance. It features a powerful HEMI V8 engine straight out of the Dodge Challenger Hellcat, delivering more than 700 hp and making it the most powerful street-legal production truck on the market. It can go from 0 to 60 in just 4.5 seconds, and it absolutely roars to life with a sound that relays its unmistakable power, paired with an 8-speed automatic for lightning-fast responsiveness.
Best of all – the Ram 1500 TRX is not just designed to rule the road; this is a fully realized off-road truck, too, with some of the best features you will find on the trail. It comes with four-wheel drive, as you would expect, and features exclusive Bilstein shocks that give it incredible nimbleness on even the toughest of trails. Inside, you will find the kind of luxury and impressive technology that you expect from a Ram truck, including a standard 12-inch infotainment display. A flat-bottom steering wheel, available materials that include rich leather and carbon fiber, and a center console shifter with a manual shifting mode all come together to make this one of the best, most powerful trucks available anywhere.
The engine is important when you look at any type of truck – whether you are interested in a midsize model to handle light tasks or a full-size pickup, the engine is going to impact everything you do with it. Ram trucks are well known for having some of the most powerful and impressive engines on the market, delivering a level of performance that you cannot find anywhere else. But even by the high standards of other Ram models, the engine in the Ram 1500 TRX is on another level, giving you the kind of power that most truck owners only dream about.
Sometimes, people like to shout out language and numbers that can make a model sound better than it is, but the Ram 1500 TRX doesn't need any exaggeration. The 2022 Ram TRX is powered by a 6.2L Supercharged HEMI V8 engine that is tuned to deliver an astounding 702 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque. This is the kind of engine you typically find in the Dodge Challenger Hellcat, and even though you can get a HEMI V8 engine on the standard Ram 1500 pickup, it does not give you this kind of power – this is something you can only get on the TRX.
With this engine, the Ram 1500 TRX can go from 0 to 60 in 4.5 seconds, according to Ram’s own testing. Yet, based on testing by Car and Driver, it can actually hit 60 mph in 3.7 seconds – and it ran the quarter-mile for them in 12.3 seconds, getting up to 110 mph in that run. According to them, it is the quickest truck they have ever tested, and the numbers pretty well speak for themselves. There is a reason Ram calls it the fastest, most powerful truck in the world – at least among anything street-legal and coming off a production line.
To support this powerful engine, the Ram 1500 TRX is wider than the standard Ram 1500, with wider fenders and an overall more powerful stance. It features an attractive and imposing grille that provides a massive amount of air to the engine for all of that explosive performance. There are also seven other air-flow features located throughout the truck’s exterior to help with aerodynamics, cooling, and the overall flow of the pickup.
One of the best things about the Ram 1500 TRX is that its amazing performance is not restricted to the racetrack or city streets. There are plenty of trucks out there that you can take onto the trail and they will work pretty well for going off-road – especially compared to most SUVs and cars. But the TRX is designed and engineered to be an off-road beast that surpasses the best trail trucks on the market, making it comparable to the impressive Jeep Gladiator.
For starters, the Ram 1500 TRX features four-wheel drive, as you would expect, and this is the only option for it – it is a 4x4 born and bred. One of the most impressive off-road features it has is the highly responsive set of Bilstein Black Hawk e2 shocks designed exclusively for the TRX. Whether you are crawling over boulders, navigating sand dunes, getting across a rough stream, or working your way through treacherous ravines, the TRX can handle it. With these shocks, the front suspension has 13 inches of travel, and the rear suspension has 14 inches of travel, giving you plenty of flexibility and impressive maneuverability.
With the turn of a dial, you can choose between eight different drive modes, letting you pick from performance-focused features that boost acceleration, like Launch Control with Launch Assist or drive modes meant to help you dominate the trail. Traction is no problem, thanks to 35-inch Goodyear Wrangler Territory All-Terrain tires with off-road treads that are wrapped around 18-inch beadlock-capable wheels. So no matter what you are trying to get through out in the wilderness, the TRX can handle it, while nearly 12 inches of ground clearance will let you maneuver over just about anything the trail throws at you.
Ram trucks are well known for offering some of the most comfortable and advanced interiors anywhere in the industry. While other brands have typically focused on barebones experiences with the best features locked away at high price points, Ram pickups lead the pack for the best standard features and great options. As you might expect, the Ram 1500 TRX is no exception to this and has incredible comfort and luxury to go along with its raw power.
Standard features on the Ram TRX are fantastic, though you can add to them if you are looking for something even more refined. A 12-inch infotainment display is standard on every model, for example, so you have a large screen to use for navigating custom performance and off-road pages. This makes it easy to set your truck for the level of performance you need, whether you are tearing up the racetrack or hitting the trail.
Of course, as with most trucks these days, as you start looking at available features on the Ram TRX, you can see things get even more impressive. For example, you can get heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, and LED ambient lighting throughout the interior. 8-way power adjustable driver and front-passenger seats are available, along with premium materials that include leather-trimmed seating and carbon fiber touches throughout the interior.
A flat-bottom steering wheel is standard, which is a great reminder of the kind of power you have at your command, while a center console shifter is easy to reach and has a manual shifting mode for when you want total control. Heated rear seats are available, along with power-adjustable pedals with memory settings to meet your needs as a driver, ventilated front and rear seats for added comfort, and a wireless charging pad to keep your compatible devices fully charged. An available dual-pane panoramic sunroof provides a gorgeous view of the sky overhead, perfect for hitting the trail, while an available 19-speaker Harman Kardon premium audio system surrounds you with stunning sound for an unbeatable driving experience.
