The TRX ‘Ignition’ Edition costs almost $25,000 more than the standard TRX and is limited to 875 examplesby Sidd Dhimaan, on
Ram has been quite active with facelifts, new trims, and special editions lately. It wasn’t too long ago when the company came out with G/T-spec models for the 1500 Laramie and Rebel trims and the 10th Anniversary Edition for the 1500 Limited trim. Not to mention, there were the ‘Built to Serve’ Edition 1500s that came out in five phases, with the latest one coming out earlier this year.
Now, the Ram introduced three new special edition trucks at the ongoing State Fair of Texas. One of the three is based on the Ram 1500 TRX and it is a homecoming of sorts for the truck as the automaker unveiled the TRX Concept five years back at the same event. The other two special editions are based on the Longhorn and the Limited trims. The changes on all three are purely aesthetic and come with no upgrades or updates under the hood.

The engine is mated to an eight-speed, high-torque-capacity transmission and an all-wheel-drive system. the Ram 1500 TRX takes just 4.5 seconds to hit the 60 mph mark from a standstill, and goes all the way up to 118 mph before losing breath.
The Ram 1500 TRX Ignition Edition is priced at $91,585 plus $1,695 destination, which brings the price to $93,280.
This makes it even more expensive than the Launch Edition that came out when the TRX debuted. It was priced at $90,315 plus destination.
From what it’s worth, the TRX Ignition Edition will be limited to 875 examples and will go on sale in the fourth quarter of 2021.
