2021 Ram 1500 TRX Mammoth 6x6 by Hennessey
The 2021 Ram 1500 TRX took the automotive world by a storm. Powered by a V-8 Hellcat engine that makes over 700 horses, this big, bulky truck takes just 4.5 seconds to hit the 60 mph mark. Just when you thought this couldn’t get any better, Hennessey decided to throw in a surprise. The aftermarket company has announced a 6x6 conversion of the “Quickest, Fastest and Most Powerful Mass-produced Truck in the World”. Called the Mammoth 6x6, Hennessey will only build three examples of this 1,200-horsepower beast and sell it at half-a-million bucks a pop. God bless Hennessey.
2021 Ram 1500 TRX
After four long years, the production-spec 2021 Ram 1500 TRX has finally arrived. The truck is as impressive as it seemed back then in concept form if not more so. This performance off-road truck has all the ingredients to make a perfect recipe - there’s a mighty V-8 Hellcat mill under the hood that makes over 700 horses, an advanced four-wheel-drive system, a strong suspension system that’s good enough to hit triple-digit speeds off-road, and a luxurious cabin that can put even premium sedans to shame.
With a price tag of $70,000, this isn’t exactly an inexpensive truck, and it kind of missed a full onslaught on the F-150 Raptor, which is available in the fully-loaded spec at the TRX’s base price point. Can it dethrone the apex predator, or will both the trucks be able to co-exist in peace?
2021 Ram 1500 TRX Launch Edition
It’s been about a week since Ram revealed the 2021 1500 TRX. It came with a lot of exciting features in and out and hit the bulls eye in almost every department. The starting price of $69,995 (excluding destination charges), too, wasn’t bad for the stuff that’s on offer. But, as is the norm these days, the Ram 1500 TRX was also introduced with a special “Launch Edition”.
Priced at over $90,000, this edition was limited to just 702 examples – the same amount of horsepower that the truck offers. At the onset, it seemed a little too expensive, but all 702 examples of the 2021 Ram 1500 TRX Launch Edition were officially sold out within three hours after the bookings opened. How about that!
2016 Ram Rebel TRX Concept
Ram definitely stole the show at the 2016 Texas State Fair with its Ram Rebel TRX Concept. Other truck brands were out in force, but it was Ram and its Hellcat-powered Rebel 1500 that drew crowds. Yep, you read that right – this truck is powered by the 6.2-liter supercharged V-8 most commonly called the Hellcat V-8. Okay, so Ram powertrain engineers had to dial back the power and torque to more manageable level to keep from breaking axles and whatnot, but this beast still puts down 575 horsepower to all four wheels.
Oh, and speaking of wheels, this truck features massive, 37-inch Toyo Open Country MT tires wrapping 18-inch beadlock wheels. Hidden behind is a custom off-road racing suspension from King with remote reservoir shocks, a six-inch wider track, and beefy control arms.
There’s a ton more stuff that makes up the 2017 Ram Rebel TRX Concept, so let’s dig into it.
