Ram has always been known for its tough trucks, but with the 2022 Ram TRX, the automaker has really stepped it up. Just last year the 2021 Ram 1500 TRX received the Texas Truck of the Year award. Now for the 2022 model year, the Ram TRX brings even greater performance. Ram has been working on bringing its all-new all-electric 2024 Ram EV to the market, but it’s good to see the automaker constantly upping the ante.

Friday, November 19th, 2021

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.

2021 Ram 1500 TRX Receives Top Honor as Texas Truck of the Year

Friday, October 29th, 2021

The Ram 1500 is once again in the spotlight as it takes yet another award. The 2021 Ram 1500 TRX was recently awarded the top honor of Texas Truck of the Year. The pickup was also awarded High-Performance Truck of the Year. These accolades all come soon after the Ram 1500 won first place in the 2021 APEAL study. Here the pickup was designated as the best light-duty pickup based on consumer sentiment and feedback. Truly the Ram 1500 is leagues ahead of the competition. The newest accolades for the pickup come from the Texas Motor Press Association Off-Road Invitational which focuses on bringing automotive industry professionals together to highlight different aspects of the industry. The audience is primarily Texas-based but the membership is made up of automotive journalists who cover a range of vehicles from cars, trucks, and SUVs to ATVs and UTVs. They are all knowledgeable and share key insights into the leading vehicles of the automotive industry. In 2021 they recognized the Ram 1500 for its versatility, capability, and overall high performance as a pickup that can get the job done.

Ram 1500 TRX Recognized as Texas Truck of the Year

The 2021 Ram 1500 TRX was recently recognized as the Texas Truck of the Year and the High-Performance Truck of the Year. These accolades come from the 2021 Texas Motor Press Association event that recognizes the best vehicles in the industry. Ram has done a superb job with their Ram 1500. The pickup has served consumers as a powerful and durable vehicle that can handle any job. Towing, hauling, and getting to the destination is what a pickup is about. The Ram does all that and more with the latest technology and safety features. About the Ram 1500, the president of the Texas Motor Press Association Bryan Grant said,

“The challenging off-road trails were no problem for Ram 1500 TRX as it easily trekked over the roads with massive horsepower, multiple drive modes and lofty ground clearance. It was so much fun to experience the truck conquer the trails. We all took notice of the wild animal roar exhaust note off in the distance,” said Bryan Grant, the president of Texas Motor Press Association.

Given the Ram 1500’s capabilities, many recognize it as an industry-standard pickup truck. The Ram truck brand was first started in 2009. It began as a stand-alone division focused on meeting the needs and demands of truck buyers. The brand has grown exponentially over the years as it has expanded its lineup with vehicles like the Ram 1500, Ram 2500/3500 Heavy Duty, and 3500/4500/5500 series Chassis Cabs. The brand also offers its ProMaster vans which allow groups to travel together with their equipment. Overall Ram has stayed true to its mission of building trucks that get hard work done and take families where they need to go.

Ram will continue to build on its lineup as it offers higher performance, greater convenience, and lasting durability. The automaker has racked up award after award each year. As the years go by, people will continue to depend on a strong pickup. With their new Know and Go mobile app, Ram is aiming to increase customer satisfaction and deliver more immersive experiences. We’ll have to see where the automaker goes from here, but right now it looks like its lead is stronger than ever.

Mopar Teases Potential New Ram Concept at 2021 SEMA Show

Thursday, October 14th, 2021

Ram has been making headlines with its Ram 1500 pickup. The pickup truck was recently awarded first place among light-duty pickups in a 2021 APEAL study. The pickup’s versatility, capability, and high performance have made it a top pick for pickup fans. Now for the 2022 model year, the Ram 1500 is once again generating excitement. It looks like Ram will be providing consumers with another Ram 1500 variant based on several teaser images revealed at the 2021 SEMA show. Each year the Speciality Equipment Market Association (SEMA) hosts the show, but it was canceled in 2020 due to Covid-19. This year the 2021 show will run November 2-5 in Las Vegas. It’s here where Mopar Performance will hopefully provide more information about their teaser images. Mopar works under the Stellantis umbrella so although it showcased Ram vehicles, it also showed off some cool Jeep concept images. We’re focusing on the Ram concept images however as they look to point toward either a special heavy-duty edition Ram 1500, or a more powerful variant, though the Ram 1500 TRX is a beast of a pickup already.

2021 SEMA Show Debuts Two Ram Concept Images

Mopar Performance will be showcasing several vehicle concept images at the 2021 SEMA show in Las Vegas. Three of these images depict a Jeep while the other two images showcase a Ram. Not much information can be discerned from the images as they’re taken in low lighting. The vehicles are also shown at side and rear angles which heightens their allure. In one of the first sketch images of the Ram pickup, the grille design and vent on the headlight can be seen. The Ram in question looks to be a 702 horsepower Hellcat-powered TRX. It’s unclear what Ram will improve or adjust for this new TRX, but the image shows blue-painted tow hooks and new badging. Perhaps Ram will improve off-road features and capabilities.

The second teaser image of the Ram 1500 pickup shows a rear backshot. The pickup is parked next to a tent and there looks to be a storage rack in the truck bed. The typical TRX text which is usually emblazoned on the rear fender is missing so it’s uncertain if this is a TRX trim. With teaser images, half the fun is guessing what new features or elements automakers will make. Given all the dirt being kicked up and the rear shot of what looks like a camp outing, the new Ram 1500 may be granted even more off-road capability. The nature of the SEMA show is to highlight new accessories and parts for Jeep and Ram vehicles, so not much should be expected. Still, pickup fans should pay close attention as there may be new concept images released. From what we’ve seen so far, it looks like Ram will have something special to debut in the months to come.

Florida Auto Shop Builds Monstrous Ram 1500 TRX 6×6 Pickup

Thursday, August 19th, 2021

Florida has always been known for its antics. Whether it’s the infamous ‘Florida Man,’ some exotic reptile escaping, or the creation of something nobody ever knew was needed. Thanks to Apocalypse Manufacturing, we’ve been graced with the third option. The creation of a monstrous pickup truck has been seen with a glint in the eyes of many young children. Those who grow up and still hold fast to the idea continue to envision such a beast. It seems one of those adults finally got their way. The beastly pickup comes to us in the form of the Warlord. This beast of a pickup is a Ram 1500 TRX with one heck of an upgrade. The Warlord as it’s known features an additional axle that supplies it with two extra wheels. The 6×6 pickup doesn’t seem too odd for Florida though. Rather, it is likely the huge Ram pickup was built specifically for the Sunshine State. 

The 6×6 Ram 1500 TRX Dubbed Warlord

So, it seems Apocalypse Manufacturing did what most monster truck fans wish they could do. The Florida-based auto shop built a vehicle that is seemingly unstoppable. They decided to take the already powerful 700 horsepower Ram 1500 TRX and give it another huge upgrade. The addition of two wheels and the sheer size of the pickup display a dominating aura. Indeed, this monstrous pickup does leave quite an image. One can imagine it barreling down the interstate as other Floridians simply stare in awe.

What is most impressive about the Warlord is that the Florida auto shop managed to keep a general stock look for the pickup. It’s as if Ram themselves built the powerful beast. The price tag tells us something different, however. For an entry-level Ram 1500 TRX, consumers are looking at a hefty $72,120 MSRP (plus destination fee). This Hellcat-powered pickup, on the other hand, costs a clean $250,000. Oof. 

The price tag isn’t entirely surprising though. To construct such a monster of a pickup, a lot of resources and money are required. For those critics, we have to agree that it doesn’t seem too feasible to be grocery shopping in this beast. But just the fact that it exists lends itself to Apocalypse Manufacturing’s vision and the child-at-heart spirit that spurs ingenuity. This custom pickup truck has certainly earned its spot among the crazy inventions of Florida. In fact, it really does represent the creative yet wild energy that makes Florida, Florida. A quick word to the wise, make sure to get out of the way when you see this beast in the rearview.

Friday, May 28th, 2021

The days of pickup trucks being solely for work, or be relied on as utilitarian workhorses of the automotive world, are long gone. These days, pickup trucks can sometimes rival luxury vehicles thanks to sumptuous interior cabins and cutting-edge technology. Some, like the all-new Ram 1500 TRX, even have the performance muscles to go head-to-head with muscle cars and the added bonus of being a capable off-roader that’s here to shut down the competition in the off-road segment. In short, pickup trucks quickly became the perfect mix of features that run the gamut from practicality to luxury.  (more…)

Electrification Efforts Accelerate as a Ram EV Pickup is Planned for 2024

Thursday, May 13th, 2021

Stellantis — the new conglomerate formed when Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and PSA Groupe merged– vowed that by 2030 every nameplate under its umbrella, including Jeep, Dodge, Chrysler, Ram, Maserati, and other brands, will offer an electric vehicle. The company plans to fortify its efforts by easing into plug-in hybrid production of most models in the coming years to accelerate its global electrification plan and meet its own 2030 deadline.

Tuesday, April 6th, 2021
