The upcoming 2021 RAM 1500 and its new TRX version
For years, the RAM 1500 has been one of the best-selling trucks in the country because of its ruggedness, performance, and longevity. And the all-new 2021 RAM 1500 raises the bar a notch-sorry, several notches-to deliver a stunning, high-performance model never seen before in a RAM truck!
More powerful than ever: say hello to the TRX version!
Already offering solid performance, the 2021 RAM 1500 adds a new string to its bow with the RAM 1500 TRX, which is nothing less than the most powerful half-ton truck ever! And while it is perfectly legal to be driven on the road, its all-terrain performances are simply astounding! In fact, it is equipped with 35-inch Goodyear Wrangler Territory tires, specifically designed for this model, as well as the largest airbox in its class, which allows it to filter 4 times more debris and water than the best competitor's model.
What's more, you'll find under its hood a powerful 6.2-litre Supercharged V8 engine that generates 702 horsepower, which will allow you to sprint the 0-96 km/h in just 4.5 seconds! However, no details are available yet regarding the towing capacity and payload of this model, the release date and availability of which are also unknown.
The interior is spacious and performance-focused; among others, you'll find a 900-watt Harman Kardon sound system with 19 speakers, and a 12-inch touchscreen with customizable pages where you'll be able to view your truck's performance data.
Other new features
For 2021, the 2021 RAM 1500 will also offer a snow plow pre-installation kit, which includes the wiring required to install a snow shovel on the front of your truck, a sliding rear window with defrost, and a 220-amp alternator. RAM Canada has not announced the price of this equipment but on the American market, this option will be available for less than $200 US.
The UConnect system will also be offered on the 2021 RAM 1500, depending on the version selected.
