What engine powers the 2021 Ram TRX?

The Ram TRX gets the iconic power from the mighty Dodge Challenger and Charger Hellcat engine. The TRX comes with a supercharged 6.2L V8 engine that kicks out an exhilarating 702 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque! The engine is controlled by a smooth 8-speed automatic transmission and comes out of the factory with four-wheel drive. The power features don't stop at the Hellcat engine, though. Other performance features include a large airbox capable of consuming up to nearly 33 liters of air per minute and filters out four times more dirt and debris than the Ford Raptor. The supercharger under the hood of the TRX can provide up to 11 lbs of boost and has a maximum speed of 14,600 RPM. The TRX also has eight selectable drive modes to give you maximum capability in all conditions. The modes are Auto, Sport, Snow, Custom, Mud/Sand, Rock, and Baja.

What are some exterior features of the 2021 TRX?

There is one body style for the 2021 Ram TRX. It comes in a Crew Cab with a 5'7" bed. The total width of the TRX adds a remarkable eight inches to that of the Ram 1500 as well as six total inches to the track. The exterior lighting is fully LED, and clearance lights have been added to the hood scoop and the front fender flares because of the added width. The front fascia of the TRX has gotten an exclusive upgrade to make it even more aggressive than that of the Ram Rebel. The truck sits high on 18-inch wheels with 35-inch off-road tires. The TRX gets a dual performance-tuned exhaust system that employs two resonance-free pipes to deliver a unique growl from two five-inch tailpipes that is sure to please.

What about interior features?

The interior of the TRX is specifically designed to provide the ultimate driving experience. And despite it having a rugged off-road exterior, the interior uses only premium materials for maximum comfort and convenience. There is a ton of technology that puts the driver in total control of the truck's performance. On the 12-inch touchscreen in the center console, you'll find performance pages that will show you instantaneous horsepower readings, personal records, steering angle, and more. The truck's computer is also integrated with an onboard dynameter. While you're off-roading, you can use the Vehicle Dynamics page to set your own optimal steering angle, lock your axles, and control your transfer case gearing. The steering wheel is racing-inspired with a flat bottom and has paddle shifters mounted to control the 8-speed automatic transmission.
