Auto Nation Group officially launches all-new Ram 1500 TRX
Earlier this August, Ram Philippines launched the 2022 1500 Rebel. Aimed against the likes of the F-150, it serves as the brand's top-of-the-line full-size pick-up. Not only does it look badass, but the Rebel also comes with plenty of toys and amenities, and is powered by a 5.7-liter HEMI V8 that pushes out 395 PS plus 556 Nm of torque.
But what if you prefer something even more radical and capable than the 1500 Rebel? Luckily for you, Auto Nation Group has just unleashed the most powerful Ram pick-up yet. Say hello to the 2022 Ram 1500 TRX.
Serving as the most powerful truck at Ram's lineup, the TRX is essentially a Hellcat-powered pick-up thanks to its beast of an engine. Under the hood is a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 derived from the Challenger Hellcat. It makes a meaty 702 PS at 6200 rpm along with a whopping 881 Nm of torque at 4800 rpm. Mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission, the TRX can sprint from 0 – 97 km/h in just 4.5 seconds, and hit the quarter-mile in only 12.9 seconds at 174 km/h.
Complementing the supercharged powertrain is a new five-link rear suspension, full-floating hubs, and an axle hop-damper. It's been tuned to deliver a more comfortable ride, as well as better handling over the stock suspension. Also worth mentioning are the all-new front and rear 2.6-inch Bilstein Black Hawk e2 adaptive performance dampers that were specifically made for the TRX. Ram claims these will provide faster reaction time, exceptional damping, and better heat dissipation when traveling at high speeds through rough terrain.
As far as its exterior is concerned, the TRX looks menacing thanks to its black accents, huge 18-inch black aluminum wheels wrapped in all-terrain tires, black body cladding, and flow-through badge lettering on the grille. It also gets LED adaptive headlights, LED daytime running lights, a massive hood scoop, and front bumper flares that further amplify the truck's sportier leanings.
While it may look rugged outside, it actually comes with a fully-loaded interior. From 8-way power-adjustable front seats to a digital rearview mirror, a 7-inch digital instrument panel, leather upholstery, LCD heads-up display, and a wireless charging pad, the TRX is anything but bare. Providing infotainment is a 12-inch UConnect touchscreen that comes with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth, and USB connectivity. Audiophiles will also appreciate the 19-speaker Harman Kardon sound system that's standard on the TRX.
Other available features present in Ram's flagship pick-up truck include a multi-function dampened tailgate, a 7-pin wiring harness, E-Locker rear axle, adjustable cargo tie-down hooks, a deployable bed step, speed-sensitive door locks, and rain-sensing wipers.
Looking to get yourself this beast of a pick-up truck? Better contact your nearest Ram dealership and let them know you're interested. As for its price, you have to be really serious about getting one before they'll let you know its price. All we know is, it'll be far more expensive than the 1500 Rebel which is currently selling for PHP 4,090,000.
