Now, the Ram TRX may have been designed for the hardcore off-roader with a beastly four-wheel drive system, but this pickup truck also has an eight-speed automatic transmission coupled to a 6.2-liter supercharged Hellcat V8 engine that churns out 702 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. In other words, not only was this truck meant to conquer trails, but it’s also one hell of a speed demon on top of that.
In the above video from The Fast Lane Truck, we get to see the TRX take on a Ford F-150 Raptor, which boasts a twin-turbocharged 3.6-liter EcoBoost V6 engine that pumps out 450 horsepower. According to Ram, the 1500 TRX can hit 60 MPH in just 4.5 seconds using launch control, and it rockets down the quarter-mile in 12.9 seconds at a clip of 108 MPH. But, as you can see from the incredible footage, this Ram truck didn’t even need launch control to conquer the F-150. Check it out! You definitely won’t be disappointed.
Did you watch the race yet? Now go watch it a second time. Pretty badass, right?
While the Ram TRX vs. Ford F-150 Raptor match-up was the video’s main attraction, it also included a couple other drag races, including the Chevrolet Silverado Trail Boss against the Ram 1500 Rebel. Powering the Silverado is a 5.3-liter V8 engine that churns out 355 horsepower. On the other hand, the Rebel has a 5.7-liter V8 with 395 horsepower.
As you could probably guess even before watching the video, the Rebel ended up conquering the Chevy, but didn’t have enough power to best the F-150 Raptor. Of course, the Ram TRX is on another level of domination, so it’s really just a battle for second place at that point.
