It’s been four years since Ram first teased us with the idea of an SRT Hellcat-powered full-size pickup truck — and now the brand has delivered one in the form of the 2021 Ram 1500 TRX. The truck’s 702 horsepower, 650 pounds-feet of torque and 4.5-second 0-60-mph time are just some of its eye-popping specs that come courtesy of the supercharged 6.2-liter V-8, but there’s a lot more to this truck than just a high-output engine. Let’s take a closer look at what sets it apart from Ram’s other half-ton trucks.

First of all, there are a number exterior modifications that make the TRX stand apart from other Ram 1500s. There’s an all-new grille with a blacked-out look that calls to mind that of the Ram Rebel, and above the grille is a new hood with a functional scoop that feeds air into the supercharged V-8 (if you look closely, you can see the required clearance lights that are integrated in part of the scoop).

Move along the side of the truck and you’ll notice wider fenders that add 8 inches of width to the TRX, and below those flared fenders are 18-inch wheels fitted with 35-inch Goodyear Wrangler Territory tires.

Ram has also overhauled the TRX suspension to meet the truck’s desert-running mission. For more on that and all the rest from our first look at — and first listen to — the 2021 Ram 1500 TRX, including pricing and production start date, watch the video below.
