THE APEX PREDATOR OF THE PICKUP TRUCK WORLD
Engineered to handle the most punishing conditions with extreme capability and to outperform every other truck, the Ram 1500 TRX® is the apex predator of the pickup truck world.
For the few that will climb up and take the wheel, they’ll need to rev-match their heartbeat to the monster under the hood. When the pedal hits the metal, the fight between chest and seatback will be happily lost. The 6.2-litre supercharged HEMI® V8 engine sets new benchmarks for power and performance in this category and the long list of performance-ready features, high-end materials and high-tech features have never been seen before.
Built off America’s most awarded light-duty pickup truck, the Ram 1500 platform, the RAM TRX® is built to rule the road and dominate the desert. Upgraded components withstand desert heat and sand environments at high speeds. With its beastly Supercharged V8 powerhouse, massive suspension travel and tuned exhaust, it delivers the power and performance that only other trucks dream of. And wait till you hear what it sounds like...
For the first time ever, RAM has defied convention by delivering a pickup truck that has it all… Segment disrupting style, luxury, capability, technology, and the performance that only other trucks dream of.
It’s no surprise that the world’s most powerful pickup truck, the Ram 1500 TRX® takes its throne at the apex of Australia’s best range of full-size pickup trucks.
Rated at 523kW (702hp) and 882Nm of torque, this thumping 6.2L Supercharged HEMI® V8 engine powers the RAM TRX® to a top speed of 159km/h. Combined with a high-torque-capacity and performance-proven TorqueFlite® 8-speed automatic transmission, the Ram TRX® delivers a segment smashing 0-100km/h in just 4.5 seconds. From modern muscle cars to high-performance SUVs, this engine has earned a reputation as a potent, reliable power source that delivers head-turning power when commanded by the driver and is a smooth, efficient power plant at cruising speeds. With its beastly Supercharged V8 powerhouse, massive suspension travel and tuned exhaust, it delivers the power and performance that only other trucks dream of. And wait till you hear what it sounds like…
The SRT® developed powertrain delivers top output and consistent performance for extended driving sessions, even in the most gruelling of environments. Stratospheric power and performance numbers were achieved in part through a new, innovative high-performance dual-path air induction system that feeds massive amounts of air to the supercharger. A TRX®-specific power-domed aluminium hood helps clear the engine’s extra height. A robust cast-iron block restrains a forged-steel crankshaft with induction-hardened bearings, all engineered to withstand firing pressures of 1,595 psi—the equivalent of 20,000 lb of force. Launch control as standard and 8 different drive modes ensure that no matter where you’re heading, you’ll have full command over your terrain.
Wherever the RAM TRX® leads, the crowd follows. Behind the wheel of the TRX®, with its 523kW (702hp) Supercharged 6.2L HEMI® V8 engine, there’s only one place you´ll always be…in the lead.
Rocking an imposing footprint and an enthralling growl, this is one truck that will be seen and heard, loud and clear. With a wider track, performance-tuned shocks, massive 35-inch tyres and a menacing stance, TRX® asserts itself as the most muscular truck to ever leave the RAM factory.
A menacing grille, functional air intake scoop and flow-through R-A-M badge ensure unobstructed airflow to the engine. A performance-tuned dual exhaust system uses two resonance-free pipes to emit an enthralling growl from the massive 5-inch matte-black exhaust tips.
On the inside, you’ll be transported into a high-performance-inspired luxurious cockpit. Expect the unexpected with features like the flat-bottom steering wheel with paddle shifters, console-mounted floor shifter, launch control, and performance-tuned drive modes with performance pages to tailor the vehicle to your task and terrain, all making their RAM debut on the TRX®.
With its segment-disrupting style, luxury, capability, technology, and performance, the TRX® defies convention and redefines what a pickup truck can be.
The all-new RAM TRX® features an aggressive stance and an impossibly wide, muscular body wrapped over the top of it. Like a mixed martial arts fighter in a tailored tuxedo, the RAM TRX® makes an impactful visual statement with an acute “hourglass” body design that features composite flares and fender wells that have been stretched to cover aggressive 35-inch Goodyear Wrangler® Territory 325/65/R18 All-Terrain tyres. Design elements, like the unique and functional hood scoop is responsible for half of the air entering the 6.2-litre supercharged HEMI® V8 engine while the other half enters through the grille. The innovative intake system is engineered to minimise power-robbing air restrictions while ensuring only clean, cool air reaches the engine, and quickly. Further enhancing the visual impact, oversized tow hooks at the front and rear of the truck, and integrated 5-inch dual exhaust ports drive the functional performance objective home.
Designed bolt by bolt to handle and conquer the most punishing conditions with extreme capability and durability, structural components have been meticulously considered. The frame is composed of thicker, optimally shaped, strategically placed high-strength steel and to protect critical components including the front axle, transfer case, transmission pan and fuel tank, the TRX® employs five skid plates. The use of lightweight, high-strength aluminium for the hood and tailgate assists in reducing weight and boosting fuel economy. An all-new suspension system features upgraded components to provide enhanced performance and improved endurance. An independent front suspension system with active damping includes new front upper and lower control arms with special attention paid to the caster and camber angles during suspension cycling. The new rear suspension system with active damping and an exclusive five-link coil system provides incredible ride characteristics, durability, and better articulation over obstacles than a leaf-spring system. The Bilstein® Black Hawk® e2 adaptive performance shocks have been tuned to demonstrate the optimum balance between on-road handling and class-leading off-road capability. A Dana 60® rear axle with full-floating axle shafts is standard and handles the increased torque output, rear electronic locking differential and 35” tyres. This rear axle uses an axle hop damper that gives improved traction and axle control on rough surfaces. Off-road, the RAM TRX® will race to 159km/h with ease, and the segment’s largest brakes will bring it to a composed halt.
The new RAM TRX® combines all-new features, technology and authentic premium materials with extreme performance, class-leading quality, comfort and durability. The interior design team carefully selected premium textures, colours and materials, including hand-wrapped leather, greystone stitching, carbon fibre, and graphite metallic accents, for unexpected luxury throughout. Based on the luxurious RAM 1500 Limited interior, the all-black colour-scheme with leather and suede give the TRX® a distinguished look and feel. Heated and ventilated premium Natura Plus leather and suede accents cover the front bucket and rear bench seats. RAM TRX® features new front seats with enhanced upper bolster support and embroidered logos. For the first time ever on a Ram Truck, the TRX® features a new SRT®-signature flat-bottom steering wheel, with enhanced hand grips wrapped in leather with suede and carbon fibre accents, enabling performance driving at your fingertips. New aluminium paddle shifters stretch above and below the steering wheel spokes, allowing the driver to choose the proper gear quickly and efficiently for a dynamic driving experience. Rounding out the ultimate crew cab is none other than an audiophile-quality sound system with a class-exclusive 900 Watt premium Harman Kardon® audio system with 19 speakers*, including a 10" subwoofer to deliver the finest and most powerful audio experience in a pickup truck.
Offering no less than 8 dynamic drive modes, the TRX® utilises performance-tuned software to pre-configure and distinguish five on-road, and 3 off-road modes, allowing the driver to choose a setting that best fits the terrain around them. The drive modes separately control the four-wheel-drive system, throttle response, transmission, paddle shifters, suspension, and electric power steering. All modes use active slip control to prevent binding and excessive slip from front to rear. The on-road modes include Auto, Sport, Tow, Snow and Custom which allows the driver to personalise the vehicle’s performance with a selectable driving experience that offers a multitude of vehicle system combinations. Mud/Sand, Rock, and Baja modes take care of off-road expeditions. Both performance and off-road performance pages give drivers the tools to become familiar with their vehicle’s performance. Featuring for the first time on a RAM, real-time information such as timers, g-force, gauges, engine performance, ride height, pitch and roll are accessible through pages on the driver’s cluster, or via the class-exclusive portrait 12” touchscreen display.
*19 Speakers including subwoofer and six coaxial two-way speakers strategically mounted in 12 locations throughout the vehicle.
