The 2021 RAM 1500 TRX is a top-rated half-ton pickup that challenges standards and defies convention by delivering award-winning performance to BC. A titan, both on- and off-road, this truck can do it all, whether it is climbing over rugged terrain, stealing the checkered flag on the drag strip, or hauling ATVs to enjoy some off-grid fun.
With such a diverse and adventuresome personality, it's no wonder that the TRX was named the 2021 MotorTrend Truck of the Year. That's the third consecutive time that a RAM truck has won this prestigious award.
A Rigid Chassis for Flawless Off-Roading in Chilliwack
The 2021 RAM 1500 TRX has a risk-taking, go-anywhere spirit that's supported by strong underpinnings that are built for off-roading in BC. The truck's new rolling chassis is exclusively made from thicker, optimally shaped, high-strength steel, which increases durability and provides better handling on all surfaces without adding extra weight.
Parts of the frame are also hydroformed, including the front rails, for dimensional accuracy, while the chassis is reinforced to handle the TRX's all-new coil spring suspension with adaptive Bilstein dampers.
A Powerful Hellcat Engine for Optimal Performance in Chilliwack
Underneath the 2021 RAM 1500 TRX's scooped hood is a Hellcat supercharged 6.2L Hemi V8, which provides BC off-road enthusiasts with 702 hp and 650 lb.-ft. of torque. Unsurprisingly, this is also the same highly-rated engine found in the Dodge Charger and Challenger Hellcat.
Power is sent to all four wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission that helps the truck cover zero to 100 km/h in approximately 3.7 seconds flat. The engine is also equipped with a special air intake to provide greater filtration for off-road use, while the truck's exhaust system emits a deep, thunderous growl.
A Beefed-Up Suspension for Rugged Terrain in Chilliwack
The 2021 RAM 1500 TRX is an ideal choice for BC thrill-seekers that like to play in mud, rocks, and sand. In addition to its reinforced steel frame, this truck boasts a supped-up suspension with 33 cm of travel. Featuring massive 89-cm all-terrain tires mounted on 45.7 cm wheels, the TRX boasts 30 cm of ground clearance with a Hellcat engine that can ford 81 cm of water.
The Ram 1500 TRX's Bilstein Blackhawk E2 adaptive shocks are also specially designed to detect changing road surfaces and adjust damping according to the conditions. Different suspension modes provide further customization, including on-road comfort, off-road performance, or a mix of both.
Robust Capability for Towing and Hauling in Chilliwack
The 2021 RAM 1500 TRX combines its off-road prowess with a determined work ethic, allowing BC drivers to haul heavy loads with precision.
With the standard supercharged 6.2L Hemi V8, this truck can pull an estimated 3,674 kg behind it and carry 594.2 kg in its bed. That's approximately 45.4 kg more towing capacity and 49.9 kg more payload capacity than its main rival, the 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor; and it assures that drivers will be able to accommodate all of their cargo needs - on the work-site or the backroads.
