New 2022 Ram 1500 TRX is one of the most impressive trucks in the world. The reason for that is its astonishing Hellcat engine that develops over 700 horsepower. The TRX or T. Rex is a high-performance model with amazing off-road capabilities. Its biggest rival is the Ford F-150 Raptor. However, Raptor is still miles away, especially in terms of performances.
The Ram 1500 TRX is a premium model with great interior design and very attractive and aggressive exterior styling. The cabin is full of modern high-tech features and the ride quality is simply astonishing. The 2022MY will gain even more equipment, but we don’t expect major upgrades. The sales will begin later in 2021.
Ram 1500 TRX Design Changes
As we said, the 2022 1500 TRX looks extremely aggressive. This is one of a few models in the automotive industry that actually looks like its original concept. Moreover, some exterior parts are exactly the same. The styling is relatively new, so we don’t expect to see drastic cosmetic changes. Everything about this truck looks wild, especially the mean-looking front fascia. The TRX model also wears a lot of muscles and to some of us, it looks scary.
The 2022MY will introduce slightly larger taillights and headlights. The grille seems to be a little bit wider and it features slightly larger bigger openings. The idea is to deliver even better airflow to its potent V8 engine. Wheels and tires won’t change, but there is no need to. Overall, Ram opted for minor visual changes.
The interior of the all-new 2022 Ram 1500 TRX will gain more updates than the exterior. For a start, Ram plans to deliver an even sportier cabin with more carbon-fiber materials. Furthermore, additional bolstering on the seats is the idea as well. Like the Rebel model, TRX will also offer a Quad cab setup that provides a very spacious interior.
However, a crew cab is perhaps the most popular option among the customers. Tech-wise, Ram provides a good-looking 8.4-inch touchscreen as standard. Moreover, a 12-inch display is optional. The next-gen Uconnect5 infotainment system is still just a rumor. Lastly, this truck will introduce additional driver-assistance features.
Hellcat Engine Specs
Under the bonnet, this high-performance truck offers an impressive 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine. Also known as the Hellcat, this unit generates up to 707 horsepower. Interestingly, the 2022 Ram 1500 TRX could gain an improvement so a new model will offer around 717 hp. An eight-speed automatic transmission comes as standard. The Dodge Challenger SRT uses the same engine, but it comes with a six-speed manual transmission.
The manufacturer will stick to a standard rear-wheel-drive setup, while the all-wheel-drive configuration will be optional. Ride height is increased by a small margin. As we said, fender flares are larger and we definitely like chunky all-terrain tires. In terms of towing capacity, the TRX model can tow almost 12,000 pounds.
2022 Ram 1500 TRX Release Date, Price
The price of the 2022 Ram 1500 TRX will start at almost $60,000. To compare, the Rebel variant is available for $43k. The price is not official yet, but we know this truck will hit the dealerships by the end of 2021. Also, we are waiting for Ford to reveal all the improvements to its F-150 Raptor model.
