Ram 1500 (RAM)RED Edition to Pull Santa’s Sleigh at Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

Ram will be lending twenty of its Ram 1500 pickups for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. The twenty trucks will be towing the numerous holiday floats during the parade. The Ram 1500 is the perfect choice for such a task given the capability, durability, and overall performance of the pickup truck. Others have shown recognition of these feats as the Ram 1500 was recently acknowledged as the best light-duty pickup of 2021. It was also recognized as the Texas Truck of the Year. Now the iconic pickup will be participating in the 2021 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. A special edition pickup will be among the group, the Ram 1500 (RAM)RED Edition. This pickup will be joined by a Ram 1500 Limited Night pickup that will feature a Lego design. There will also be a Ram 2500 Power Wagon 75th Anniversary edition.

(RAM)RED Edition to Pull Santa’s Sleigh

The Ram 1500 (RAM)RED Edition is a limited edition Ram that was created in partnership with the organization RED which was founded by Bono and Bobby Shriver to tackle HIV/AIDs. The Ram 1500 (RAM)RED edition will be representing the company. Automakers Ram, Jeep, and Fiat have also committed to donating a minimum of $4 million to the RED global fund through 2023 to help assist with emergencies. Alongside the Ram 1500 (RAM)RED will be a Ram 1500 limited Night and a Ram 2500 Power Wagon 75th Anniversary edition. 

The Ram 1500 (RAM)RED is based on the Ram Night Edition but it gets some new features. One of these is unique red detailing on the front grille and side panels. It will also have custom center console badging. About being allowed the honor to tow the various floats during the parade, Ram brand chief executive Mike Koval Jr. said,

“As the brand that is ‘Built to Serve,’ the Ram Truck brand is honored to serve as the official truck of this iconic parade as our full portfolio of award-winning trucks pulls these floats down the streets of Manhattan,” Mike Koval Jr. said. “We are thrilled to have people return to experience this magical event in person as we continue to take great pride in aligning our brand with an iconic American event like the 95th Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.”

A Look at the Ram 1500 TRX RexRunner Concept

Ram saw a new concept vehicle revealed at the 2021 Speciality Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas. The Ram 1500 TRX RexRunner was unveiled by Mopar, the Stellantis parts, service, and customer care division. The SEMA Show is a collection of manufacturers and buyers from different segments of the automotive industry. Together they share new parts, accessories, and concept vehicles. Over the years the Ram 1500 has done exceptionally well. The pickup has been highly rated by the Texas Motor Press Association as the Texas Truck of the Year and it has also been awarded the Light-Duty Pickup of the Year in a recent 2021 APEAL study. Now the iconic Ram pickup will be getting a new concept, the Ram 1500 TRX RexRunner. We’ll dive into the new concept pickup and see what Mopar has to offer.

Ram 1500 TRX RexRunner Revealed

Mopar unveiled the Ram 1500 TRX RexRunner at the 2021 SEMA Show in Las Vegas. The concept pickup is based on the Ram 1500 but it comes equipped with a layer of Mopar accessories and custom parts. These add an extra level of capability and durability. For its engine, the Ram TRX RexRunner comes equipped with a standard 6.2L Hemi V8 that’s capable of 702 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. Providing the pickup its impressive ground clearance are 18×9-inch Black Rhino Chamber wheels wrapped in 37-inch Goodyear tires. These combined with the cool Ash Gray exterior finish and center stripe give the pickup a sporty look. The concept pickup also features TRX bedside graphics and the prominent Ram logo on the grille.

The Ram 1500 TRX RexRunner also features a RamBar that’s equipped with a pair of 14-inch TYRI rectangular LED lights. These LED lights are great for off-roading as they generate up to 4,300 lumens of light. At the rear, the truck gets a Mopar bed extender that flips inward. This helps with securing tools. There’s also a bed liner to protect cargo. Custom skid plates at the front help enhance the rough and rugged look of the pickup. They protect the truck’s underside and increase the approach angle up to 32.5 degrees while Mopar rock rails protect the side sills. 

The TRX RexRunner also gets a custom black flip-top fuel-filler door that accentuates the truck’s toughness. Finally, the concept pickup features 5-inch Mopar exhausts in the rear as well as a Mopar bed step for easy access to the truck bed.

The Ram 1500 Classic is the Ideal Pickup for Enthusiasts

Ram has been dominating lately with its Ram 1500. The rough and tough pickup was recently ranked first among light-duty pickup trucks in a 2021 APPEAL Study. Given its capability, durability, and overall toughness as a pickup, the Ram 1500 has continued to be an iconic truck. Ram offers the Ram 1500 with a range of combinations and features. Consumers wanting a truck oriented toward hauling can opt for Towing packages while those looking for an everyday truck can opt for more luxurious trims like the Laramie or Rebel trim. Better still, Ram offers specialty Ram trucks like the TRX RexRunner for those wanting more excitement out of their pickup. All these are great choices but one Ram pickup that holds up and is relatively affordable is the Ram 1500 Classic. We’ll take a look at this light-duty pickup and check out its versatility.

Checking Out The Ram 1500 Classic

The Ram 1500 Classic is one of the most affordable yet capable pickups available. The pickup starts at an MSRP of $29,490 (plus destination fee) and comes standard with a 3.6L V6 engine capable of 305 horsepower. Consumers can opt for higher outputs like a 5.7L Hemi V8, but the V6 can certainly get the job done. The Ram 1500 Classic uses an automatic transmission and it can tow up to 8240 pounds when equipped with the right features. Given the capabilities, this pickup is well worth the price.

Where the Ram 1500 Classic shines is with its powertrain and affordable price. While the interior and exterior may not be anything to brag about, it’s likely that those consumers wanting an affordable pickup may not be too concerned with luxury and design. The exterior of the Ram Classic, for example, is a throwback to previous Ram trucks so there isn’t too much in terms of detail. This is also a way to save costs. Still, there are three trim levels for the pickup including the Tradesmen, the Express, and the Warlock. The Tradesmens trim features a black neutral front design and simple wheels. The Express trim comes with a painted front end and upgraded wheels. The Warlock trim is the higher-end of the three and it features a new front fascia and aggressive paint schemes. It also comes with black wheels.

Though the Ram 1500 Classic looks pretty barebones both inside and out, it features different body style options. Consumers can opt for either a two-door style or, with an extended cab option, a four-door style. The Ram’s bed comes standard at 6 foot 4 inches but an 8-foot option can be chosen as well. For those wanting more durability, a 4×4 option is available. Overall, the Ram 1500 Classic is the ultimate pickup in terms of affordability. It’s got toughness and is capable of getting the job done no matter what that may be.

Mopar Teases Ram 1500 TRX RexRunner and Outdoorsman Concepts

Ram is getting two new concept vehicles courtesy of Mopar. The Stellantis parts, service, and customer care division prepared several vehicles for the 2021 Speciality Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show. Hosted in Las Vegas, Nevada, the 2021 SEMA Show brings manufacturers and buyers from different segments of the automotive industry together to share new parts, accessories, and concept vehicles. The Ram 1500 has done exceptionally well in recent years. The pickup has been highly rated by the Texas Motor Press Association as the Texas Truck of the Year and it has also been awarded the Light-Duty Pickup of the Year in a recent 2021 APEAL study. Now the iconic Ram pickup will be getting two new concepts, the Ram 1500 TRX RexRunner and the Ram 1500 Outdoorsman. We’ll dive into the concept trucks and see what Mopar has to offer for fans of the rough and tough pickup.

Ram 1500 TRX RexRunner

Mopar presented the Ram 1500 TRX RexRunner as one of its concept vehicles at the 2021 SEMA Show. The RexRunner is based on the 2021 Ram 1500 TRX but this pickup gets even more capability and durability. The RexRunner pickup comes equipped with a standard 6.2L Hemi V8 that’s capable of 702 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. The truck features 18×9-inch Black Rhino Chamber wheels wrapped in 37-inch Goodyear tires. These give off a race-inspired look which is further complemented by Ash Gray paint and Mopar Blue accents. 

The Ram RexRunner also features a RamBar and a pair of 14-inch TYRI rectangular LED lights. A Mopar bed extender that flips inward helps secure tools and a bed liner protects cargo. Enhancing the rough and rugged look of the pickup are custom skid plates with Mopar lettering that protect the truck’s underside. These increase the approach angle up to 32.5 degrees while Mopar rock rails protect the side sills. The pickup also gets a custom black flip-top fuel-filler door that accentuates the truck’s toughness. Final additions to the RexRunner concept include 5-inch Mopar exhausts in the rear as well as a Mopar bed step with an articulating arm for easy access to the truck bed. 

Ram 1500 Outdoorsman

For the Ram 1500 Outdoorsman concept pickup, Mopar used the Ram 1500 Big Horn Crew Cab 4×4 as a base model. The idea around the Outdoorsman concept was that it was to be made for those hard-working consumers that also want an everyday truck. The Ram 1500 Outdoorsman comes with a painted black gloss and custom Mopar blue graphics. Designed for hard work and harder play, the truck comes with a two-height position aluminum Mopar bed rack system that goes the full width of the truck bed. This rack system can hold ladders, plywood, whatever the owner needs. Mounted on the floor of the bed are modified Expertec bed-slides capable of holding 2,000 pounds. These make unloading tools, gear, and equipment much easier. Bed rails are also attached to the inside of the walls of the bed. These come with adjustable cleats that slide to secure loads of all sizes.

The Ram 1500 Outdoorsman comes equipped with all a handyman needs. The pickup features a custom Mopar RamGate workbench on the inside panel of the tailgate. It features conversion charts, an angle finder, and a T-track mounting system that adds additional room for cutting wood, tuning bikes, or sharpening tools. The pickup rides on a 2-inch lift kit with Fox shocks and split six-spoke 20×9-inch Black Rhino wheels wrapped in 35-inch Continental tires. Inside the pickup, owners will note a custom deployable work surface that slides out from the center armrest. It provides 12×14 inches of extra workspace. 

Ram fans are getting two new concept pickups. The RexRunner is a sportier version of the iconic pickup while the Outdoorsman takes outdoor work to another level. These two pickups are still concepts but from what we’ve seen so far, they’re two trucks that Ram owners are sure to love.
