2021 Ram TRX Launch Edition sold out in three hours

2021 Ram TRX Launch Edition sold out in three hours

The 2021 Ram TRX was released last Monday and was always expected to do well. As the only real challenger to the Ford F-150 Raptor, the new Ram was always going to gain a following. What none of us expected was the entire range of TRX selling out in just three hours.

The initial run of 2021 Ram TRX was limited to 702. One for each horsepower in the engine. However, all of those sold out within that three hour window. Considering the TRX Launch Edition costs north of $90k USD, that’s quite an achievement!

When you look at the truck and see the specs, you can see why it went down so well.

“The all-new 2021 Ram TRX sets the benchmark for extreme performance pickup trucks and solidifies Ram Truck’s position as the off-road truck leader,” said Mike Koval, head of Ram Brand, FCA North America, in a statement.

Ram has a strong history of high-performance trucks and TRX adds to that while expanding the light-duty line-up with the segment’s best combination of performance, capability, luxury and technology.”

2021 Ram TRX

The 2021 Ram TRX is built on the inimitable Ram 1500 truck. That’s a great start for any vehicle but add the supercharged 6.2-litre engine from the Hellcat with 702 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque and you have something else entirely.

The engine has a deeper oil pan, unique exhaust manifold and higher air intake to allow for rough driving. Half the required air comes through the front grille while the rest comes from the hood scoops. This has the added benefit of allowing the truck to plough through water without impacting performance.

The truck uses an eight speed automatic transmission with a two-speed transfer case, Dana electronic locking differential, tall off road Bilstein Black Hawk e2 adaptive nitrogen shocks and springs and road and trail-rated Goodyear Wrangler Territory 365/65R18 tires.

A Baja drive mode calibrates four-wheel drive, steering, stability control, paddle shifters and suspension to deliver awesome off road performance whatever the surface.

Inside, the truck is as luxurious as you would expect with a few extra touches. A new flat-bottom steering wheel, new paddle shifters, Uconnect 4C 12 inch touchscreen, new gear selector, new digital rear mirror and unique trim throughout. There is also a fully digital instrument cluster with TRX logos and configurable readouts.

The 2021 Ram TRX Launch Edition is long gone and is unlikely to return. However, there will be other versions of the TRX coming soon. Visit Unique Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, 915 Walkers Line, Burlington, ON L7N 3V8 to register your interest.
