RAM TRX Sports Pick Up Truck Revisited

Ram TRX – Bigger American styled Pick-Up trucks are becoming more popular recently. They have space, practicality, and performance.

Well, you get the RAM 1500 TRX. This comes with a Supercharged 6.2L V8 Hemi petrol engine. Power is 523kW and torque is a handy 882 Nm. This drives all four wheels through an 8 speed AT with 8 drive modes available. Oh, and for those times when you just have to, there is also a launch control function.

The weight of this truck is about 3000kg. It’s a monster. A monster that will go from 0-100KM/h in about 4.5 seconds. It will also tow 3500kg and go off road when you want.

Of course it comes with just about every luxury , safety and comfort feature Ram Trucks can jam in there. It will put a lot of large premium 4WDs and SUVs to shame in that department.

As it will when asked to seat five tall occupants, which the others can only dream of.

All this performance and capability does come at a price though. THE TRX will drink fuel at an astonishing rate. I got it down to about 18L/100K on the motorway and averaged about 21L/100K overall. Don’t even ask what its like when you bury the right foot or drive on sand.

The RAM 1500 TRX is priced from around $225,000 plus the usual costs and I absolutely love it. There is nothing else like it in Australia.
