That’s Nearly The Price Of Two Base Raptors

2021 Ram TRX Price Launch Edition

The 2021 Ram TRX price was revealed on the official Ram website, as a complete configurator became available. The main takeaway: the TRX has an MSRP starting at $70,095 plus $1,695 destination, totaling $71,790. Like the Dodge Challenger Super Stock, it’s suggested price is less than $100 per horsepower. Value! But, also, this truck is wildly expensive (for a truck). To a strong degree this was expected. However, what we didn’t expect was that it can tip the scales at a whopping $100,835. That’s of course if you’re one of the lucky few who can nab a Ram TRX Launch Edition, which is limited to a scant 702 units.

The TRX Launch Edition package is priced at $12,150, and comes in just one color: Anvil Gray. It otherwise consolidates a whole suite of options. This includes a 19-speaker Harman-Kardon audio system, beadlock-ready wheels, heads up display, panoramic sunroof, carbon fiber accents, and on, and on, and on. Key Mopar accessories include the $1,895 Ram Bar, and a $995 bed-mounted tire carrier.

Of course, the main comparison when it comes to the Ram TRX price is the Ford F-150 Raptor, which comes in at a seemingly cheap $53,455. While the Raptor has all of off-road hardware to fly through the dunes just as well as the T-Rex, the EcoBoost V6 engine produces just 450 horsepower, compared to the Hellcat truck’s insane 702 horsepower. At the top end, a fully loaded F-150 Raptor comes in at $75,840, and that’s before gearing up with accessories. In short, the TRX is competing entirely at a different price point, but likely for the same customer. Just the ones with deeper pockets.

Say hello to the most expensive half-ton truck in the world. Say hello to the most powerful production truck in the world. Say hello to the quickest production truck in the world.

Muscle Cars & Trucks was founded by Manoli Katakis - an automotive media veteran that has been covering the latest car news since 2009. His journalism has uncovered dozens of major product changes, updates, plans, and cancellations long before automakers were ready to make things official.

Some highlights over the years of his reporting include the uncovering of the Zora trademark before anybody else reported on the coming of a mid-engine Corvette, as well as the dead-accurate reporting of the coming of the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2, two years before it hit the market, and even before the debut of the concept vehicle. This type of reporting has immediately continued here, with reports of the original seventh-generation Camaro plans being shelved, as well as what's in store for the Chevrolet Silverado.

Some of his work can be found on massive automotive media outlets, such as Motor1. He also has been a guest on the 910AM Radio Station with Detroit News auto critic Henry Payne, as well as the enthusiast-oriented Camaro Show podcast.

Over the years, Manoli has interviewed various automotive industry titans, leaders, and people that make things happen otherwise. These include figureheads such as GM CEO Mary Barra, GM President Mark Reuss, automotive aftermarket icon Ken Lingenfelter, Dodge firebrand Tim Kuniskis, along with various chief engineers of vehicles such as the Ford F-150 & Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro & Corvette, and many more.

At MC&T, Manoli is taking his journalism expertise, deeply planted sources, driving abilities, and automotive industry knowledge to new levels, covering more vehicles and brands than ever before. This is the place where you will continue to read groundbreaking stories about American performance vehicles, pickup trucks, and sport utility vehicles.

Fun facts: he also once beat Corvette Racing driver Tommy Milner in an autocross with a Chevrolet Bolt EV. The biggest vehicle he’s ever driven is a John Deere mining truck. Besides a go-kart, the smallest vehicle he’s driven has been a Hyundai i10. He’s also spent time in the cockpit of various American performance vehicle icons, including the fifth-generation Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, Dodge Challenger Demon, and Ford Mustang GT350R. He has reviewed dozens of trucks, SUVs, and performance vehicles over the years.
