Ford deserves bedloads of acclaim for sparking the factory-baked desert-runner chic that’s taken the auto articulation by storm. But with a 702-hp engine, avant-garde abeyance technology, and the basic of our 2019 Barter of the Year-winning Ram 1500, the TRX aims to be the world’s aboriginal authentic supertruck.

Given how Ford has approached the F-150 Raptor and Toyota the Tundra TRD Pro (the TRX’s two best absolute competitors), you’d be forgiven for cerebration that the TRX is little added than a hot-rodded Ram 1500. Truth is, the changes are far added all-encompassing than that.

For starters, the TRX gets a beefed-up anatomy that’s 74 percent altered than that of a accepted Ram 1500. It again gets new (relocated) axles, different 18-inch auto with asperous 35-inch Goodyear all-terrain tires (custom specced for the TRX), and a game-changing new abeyance from Bilstein that combines alien reservoirs and massive 2.5-inch-diameter pistons with cyberbanking valve damping. All of this adds up to the end ambition of authoritative the TRX as able of scrabbling up rocks and aerial over dunes as it is dabbling through cartage on the freeway.

Out in its accustomed ambiance and let apart in the high-desert abrade surrounding Los Angeles, the Ram TRX feels absolute unstoppable. Senior appearance editor Jonny Lieberman said: “Forget about the agent (just kidding), and apply on how aback you put the TRX in Baja Mode. It aback corners in clay like a sports car on concrete. And balloon about arid running; the TRX is able of absolute frame-twisting, hill-scaling, stair-stepping, rock-hopping off-roading, too.”

How could we balloon the Ram’s engine? It’s Hellcat 6.2-liter supercharged V-8 has been adapted from Dodge and Jeep assignment to accomplish it able of activity at acute off-road angles and in both wet and abundant dust conditions. Authoritative 702 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque, the TRX inhales through a new anatomic awning beat and a grille with a passthrough Ram logo. It exhales via new bankrupt manifolds and X-pipes, the spent air departure from 5.0-inch bankrupt tips tucked up into the animate bumper. In the TRX, the agent is commutual with a new high-torque-capacity eight-speed automated and full-time four-wheel-drive system.

The TRX works aloof as able-bodied on-road as it does off of it. “The way this affair rears aback aback you attic it is aloof nutty,” appearance editor Scott Evans said. “Also, Sport approach turns off the absorption control! This barter is insane.” The Ram’s ambush shocks abate anatomy cycle and anchor dive while council charcoal accelerating and authentic admitting the truck’s massive off-road tires.

Our analysis numbers aback this up. With a 4.1 additional 0-to-60-mph run and a baking 12.7-second quarter-mile at 106.3 mph, the TRX is the fastest auto barter we’ve activated back our founding in September 1949.

More than aloof a acceleration machine, the Ram TRX handles “truck stuff” absolutely well, too. Rated to booty 1,310 pounds in its bed or tow up to 8,100 pounds off its rear block (that’s 110 pounds added in the bed and 100 pounds added off the bonanza than the battling F-150 Raptor), the Ram accepted added than able of shrugging off 5,200 pounds of Airstream abaft it.

Flaws? There are a few, and they aren’t small. For starters, some board didn’t feel like Ram did abundant to differentiate the TRX’s exoteric design, which is abundantly based on that of the Ram 1500 Rebel. Building a bays truck? Accomplish it attending like a bays truck!

It’s additionally eye-wateringly expensive, with prices starting at $71,690, able-bodied arctic of a Raptor or Tundra in the mid-$50K range. Lastly, there’s its ammunition economy: At an EPA-rated 10/14/12 mpg, the Ram TRX is horrendously inefficient. And while, yeah, supercars and pickups are inefficient to activate with, we’re aghast to see that there’s no admixture activity on in the TRX—especially because the Ram 1500 comes accepted with a balmy amalgam V-6 and is accessible with a balmy amalgam V-8.

Even with its awful ammunition economy, there’s no abstinent it: The world’s aboriginal supertruck is an abundantly absorbing engineering accomplishment and yet addition notable cleft in Ram’s apparatus belt.
