What Engine Powers the 2024 Ram 1500 TRX?
As was mentioned above, the Ram 1500 TRX offers best-in-class power numbers. At the heart of the TRX is a supercharged 6.2L HEMI V8 engine, which delivers 702 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque, making it the most powerful factory-installed engine in its class. The supercharger mounted to the engine’s cylinder head is capable of a maximum boost output of 11 PSI and a maximum speed of 14,600 RPM. This, coupled with the HEMI engine, gives the TRX a 4.5-second 0-60 time and a top speed of 118 MPH, restricted only by the stock tires! The supercharged engine is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission that uses paddle shifters for available sequential gear shifting. Plus, the TRX employs an intelligent 4×4 system for optimal traction on any terrain.
Off-Road Capability of the 2024 Ram 1500 TRX
Clearly, the Ram 1500 TRX offers remarkable performance on the road. However, we mentioned above that its off-road capabilities are just as impressive, so we’d like to tell you why! A large part of the TRX’s off-road prowess comes from the Black Hawk e2 shock absorbers designed by Bilstein. These shocks provide impressive wheel articulation, allowing 13 inches of suspension travel in the front and 14 inches in the rear. This suspension travel makes it easier to crawl over just about any trail obstacle you may encounter. As the Bilstein shocks near full compression, a secondary piston will engage, preventing the truck from bottoming out and bolstering its capability and durability. The shocks also provide the TRX with a towering 11.8-inch ground clearance, allowing you to pass through up to 33 inches of water and pass over trail obstacles. Keeping the immense power of the TRX connected to the ground with a firm grip are the standard 35-inch Goodyear Wrangler Territory tires. Ram’s Selec-Speed system comes standard with the TRX to provide a low-speed cruise control function for off-roading, allowing you to focus on maneuvering the terrain while Selec-Speed manages the throttle and brake. Enhancing the TRX’s off-road abilities are the eight selectable drive modes, including Custom, Sport, Snow, Baja, Sand/Mud, Auto, and Tow. Selecting one of these modes will fine-tune the truck’s systems to best suit the demands of the selected terrain. It coordinates the steering responsiveness, transmission shift points, suspension firmness, throttle control, and torque distribution, providing unrivaled, customized all-terrain capabilities.
What Does the Ram 1500 TRX Offer for Standard Features?
The Ram 1500 TRX oozes confidence wherever it goes as it is more aggressive, wider, and taller than the standard Ram 1500 lineup. As was mentioned above, the TRX clears the ground by 11.8 inches, towering over the rest of the lineup. Further, it adds six inches to the truck’s track, which is the space between the wheels on each axle, as well as an additional eight inches to the truck’s overall width. The result of these measurements is an aggressive stance that is sure to intimidate the competition. Adding to the aggressive look is an exclusive front end featuring flow-through ‘RAM’ lettering on the unique grille, bumper-integrated tow hooks, sleek headlight housings with brilliant LED lights, and a large hood scoop illuminated by three amber LED lights. Settling into the driver’s seat, you’ll be comforted by leather upholstery. The performance-inspired steering wheel has a flat bottom and is wrapped in leather for a comfortable grip. Behind the steering wheel, you’ll find Ram’s new 12-inch fully digital instrument cluster, offering navigation, performance data, vehicle dynamics, and more. Other standard interior features include a center console shifter replacing the Ram 1500’s rotary dial, an 8-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, launch control, dual-zone automatic climate control, a red ignition button, remote engine start, a 12-inch Uconnect 5 touchscreen, and a vast selection of other features to take your drives to the next level!
