The 2020 Ram 1500 TRX will arrive once again, this time even more aggressive than before. After a lot of speculations, this pickup truck was spotted in Arizona. According to the latest news, this half-ton pickup truck will ride on a famous Hellcat powertrain and it will bring the best performance so far.
Ram’s plan to beat Ford F-150 Raptor is going in the right direction as the TRX variant was given a green light. The 2020 Ram 1500 TRX will probably arrive with astonishing figures over 700 horses. Moreover, great off-road capabilities are guaranteed and the exterior will get a unique styling.
2020 Ram 1500 TRX exterior looks mean
The exterior of the all-new 2020 Ram 1500 TRX will look similar to the regular 1500 model. However, the TRX variant will get a more aggressive styling and more aerodynamic shape. Moreover, new suspension is available along with the rear and front coil springs. Additionally, Ram will offer air springs as an option and the front end will look really mean.
The front grille comes with the huge R-A-M lettering and is slightly modified. Headlight units will suffer a slight redesign and the new front bumper is on the cards. The bumper is finished in steel and it provides an even meaner look.
2020 Ram 1500 TRX interior will get an 8.4-inch display
The 2020 Ram 1500 TRX will offer a modern interior with great comfort. The standard upholstery includes cloth and textile materials, but we expect leather upholstery as an option.
The infotainment system is up to date and it adds an 8.4-inch display. The system supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, along with the 4G LTE, Bluetooth, and navigation. Just as any other Ram’s pickup truck, the 1500 TRX model will also get latest safety aids.
2020 Ram 1500 TRX powertrain specifications
According to well-informed sources, the upcoming 2020 Ram 1500 TRX will use a Hellcat engine as the Rebel Concept shows us. However, the concept introduced a 6.2-liter V8 with 575 horses. Now, the news is even better, as this half-tone pickup truck will get the same V8 unit with 707 hp.
The evidence is visible on spy shots where we can see that the rear part gets an extra support that can handle more torque. A TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission is in the offer, along with the paddle shifters.
The previous Ram’s most powerful model was the Viper V10 SRT variant with slightly over 500 hp. Thanks to these improvements, Ram 1500 TRX is a more than capable off-roader. Ram will also deploy a 4×4 Performance Control System that offers up to four driving modes. Normal, Snow/Wet, Off-Road and Baja driving modes are included. Front axle with an open differential and new CV half-shaft are in the offer too so the off-roading will be a piece of cake for this pickup truck.
2020 Ram 1500 TRX price and release date
The all-new 2020 Ram 1500 TRX will cost slightly more than the Ford Raptor. However, it makes perfect sense as the Ram’s truck offers a much powerful engine. With that in mind, the price will start at around $60,000, more or less. The TRX variant will arrive in the last quarter of 2019.
