The Ram 1500 TRX is, already, an assault on the senses. No other production truck has over 700 horsepower through a supercharged V8, like it does. So much output gives this 3+ ton truck the velocity of a Dodge Challenger Scat Pack, accelerating from 0-60 in just 4.5 seconds. It can also tow 1.5 times its bodyweight. And has an interior larger than some AirBnB listings. It’s a truck. It’s a muscle car. It’s an apartment. All in one. Sensory. Assault.
So, what does one do with a truck this bonkers and crazy? Make it even crazier. From a visual standpoint, anyway. At least, for now. Say hello to the 2022 Ram 1500 TRX Ignition Edition, and it’s here just in time to siege the local pumpkin patch.
2022 Ram 1500 TRX Ignition Edition: Details
Primarily, the 2022 Ram 1500 TRX Ignition Edition will appeal to collectors, as only 875 of them will be made. It’s based on a TRX Level 2 Equipment Group, and features a unique Ignition exterior color and graphics, 18-inch machine face black wheels, panoramic sunroof, spray-in bedliner, cargo tie-downs, bed step and an LED cab-mounted brake light.
Inside, the 2022 Ram TRX Ignition Edition includes Copperhead Orange stitching and an embroidered “TRX” seat back logo, copper carbon fiber accents, orange center console badge, Head-up Display, a driver’s screen that features TRX in Ignition Orange and pedestrian emergency braking.
Under the hood remains unchanged: a 6.2L supercharged Hemi V8 with 702 horsepower throwing power to the wheels via a a buttery smooth and wicked smart 8-speed ZF transmission.
Ram TRX Ignition Edition Price
The 2022 Ram 1500 TRX Ignition Edition MSRP starts at $91,585 USD, plus another $1,695 destination and will be on sale by the fourth quarter of 2021. That’s over $21,000 more than the base Ram TRX, in case you were wondering. But it’s right in line with what Ram was asking for the TRX Launch Edition, which was limited to just 702 units and sold out in 3 hours.
We wouldn’t bet against people turning away from sticker shock, even as the truck looks so electrifying.
